8 Halloween Costumes Inspired By Literature

Halloween is nearly here, Cozy Readers! And, we can’t wait! October is our favorite time of year. The evenings are starting to get chilly and the leaves are beginning to turn all the colors of Fall. It’s the perfect time to bob for apples, eat pumpkin pie, and drink tangy, cinnamon apple cider. And, of course, we’re dressing as some of our favorite literary characters (we had a long list to choose from!). How are your costumes coming? We’d love to hear what everyone’s going as this year. If you’re still deciding on a costume, why not try one of these bookish favorites?

Popular Picks

1) Belle from Beauty and the Beast

Emma Watson wowed in this year’s most-anticipated live-action remake of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Now, re-create her classic look with a beautiful blue dress and white apron. And, don’t forget the matching bow for your hair!

2) Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman is sure to be a popular choice for all ages. This Comic Book Queen reminded us about the importance of female empowerment and we love her! Costume prices on Amazon range from $ to $$, so take a look at the Prime offerings for fast shipping!

Children’s Classics

Novel Classics

5) Jane Austen

Dress as our favorite classic heroine, Elizabeth Bennet from Jane Austen’s popular novel, Pride & Prejudice. If you can, convince your modern beau to go as Mr. Darcy for a match made in Halloween heaven!
