Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.
The topic for this week is: Top Ten Books/Movies To Read Or Watch To Get In The Halloween Spirit OR Top Ten Characters Who I Would Totally Want To Be For Halloween
You probably don’t know this about me but I don’t like Halloween. I feel like it’s one of those completely commercialized holidays whose main purpose is to help stores sell more stuff people don’t need. Maybe I only feel like this because I’ve never trick-or-treated.
Or maybe it’s because I’ve NEVER dressed up in a costume before. Ever. But I do love costumes.
So despite my dislike for the holiday – I’m excited to share with you all my TOP TEN CHARACTERS I’D LOVE TO BE FOR HALLOWEEN!
Most of these are fantasy, paranormal or sci-fi characters because I think that it’s probably very hard to dress up as a contemporary character and have people who know who you are… except I suppose if you were Gus from TFIOS the one leg might give you away….
Okay. My ten:
Rose Hathaway from Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead – Wearing all back, boots and being generally kick-arse. What’s not to love?
Celaena Sardothien from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas – I’m not sure if I want to be her for Halloween or if I just want to be her in general! She’s amazing although I wonder just how much all her weaponry would weigh me down…
America Singer from The Selection by Kiera Cass – Those gorgeous gowns. That’s all I need to say.
Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer – I love Cinder and I think whilst dressing up as her would be a challenge (what with the cyborg leg and other unique parts of her) it would be so much fun.
Anyone at all from the Harry Potter series – Because they’re all awesome.
Evie from Spark by Rachael Craw – She’s kick-arse and being her for a day would be fun.
Evie from Poison Princess by Kresley Cole – She’s the Empress and I just love how she’s describe in the books complete with the vines crawling up her arms.
Evie from The Diviners by Libba Bray – Dressing up as a 1920’s flapper girl would be amazing!
Lilac from These Broken Stars by Aimee Kaufman and Megan Spooner – I love how as Lilac I’d be able to dress up in her gorgeous gown but also mess it up a little to show the damage it sustained in her adventures.
Any of the Chimera from the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series by Laini Taylor – Wings, manes, fur, human parts… It would be the most incredible costume ever…
It’s probably cheating just a little with some of my choices. But it’s hard to choose just which Harry Potter character I’d like to be. From Luna Lovegood to Albus Dumbledore – I kind of want to be them all! Same with the Chimera from Daughter of Smoke and Bone. They’re all so very cool in their own ways… and probably VERY hard to dress up as them. If I was a guy I think my ultimate book character dress up would be Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones. Whenever I see people dressed up as him at Supanova I always think it’s such a great costume…
Have you ever dressed up as a character from a book before? Are there any you will be dressing up as this year? Do you have an ultimate character you would one day like to dress up as? Feel free to leave me a comment. Happy Tuesday and Happy Early HALLOWEEN!
