Top Five Characters Who I Would Totally Want To Be For Halloween

Hosted by The Broke and Bookish

All titles link to reviews or Goodreads, pictures link to where I found them!

Reminds me of Karou's hamsa tattoos in Daughter of Smoke and Bone by @Lu P taylor :) <3

I'm obsessed with Karou's hair.  Possibly because I want blue hair in the worst way.  I like to think she would have whimsical nick knacks in her hair, although I can't remember if it expressly says so in the book.  The hamsa is also a big part of the plot/her character, so I'd definitely have that as part of the costume as well.  Otherwise, she mostly just wears normal clothes, if I remember correctly.

What, can't we all afford $2000 dresses for Halloween? ( Or ever.)  Sue me for just wanting Celia's entire wardrobe all the time.  It sounds freaking amazing.  Or dressing up like really anyone from The Night Circus - a reveler or Tsukiko would also be awesome choices.

Sophronia - Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger

Did you guys know that Gail Carriger actually dresses up in steampunk costume?  And does a TON of research, and basically it's awesome.  That's her in the center.  I've always been into steampunk, but it's a little too intimidating to jump into without some conconspirators (and a lot of money. Neither of which I have).  In all honesty, I probably look more like Sidheag and dress like her, but she doesn't have fun gadgets like Sophronia does.  Although she probably would have a knife, and I do love a girl with weapons...

Celaena Sardothien - Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

This is the one most likely to happen in my future.  Maybe next year? I just need another year of no haircuts, and I can totally see myself doing this. (I'm dressing up with two other people for Halloween this year, so it seems unlikely they'll go for a random book they've never heard of lol)

Katniss Everdeen - The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins


This one would be the easiest for me to do.  I already wear my hair in a braid all the time (admittedly I'm not brunette), I've got the leather jacket, boots, and I'd have to ask my mom for my brother's bows and arrows, but that's practically the whole outfit!

Luna Lovegood - Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

Luna profile

You know, it's never really a question for ANYONE which Harry Potter character I would be.  And it's not because of my coloring - I'm not that blonde, and I'm pretty sure Astoria and Pansy are blondes too.  It's more to do with the...er...spaciness.


  1. Great choices Elizabeth! I'd love to dress as Luna, she's a fantastic character and more quirky than the other characters in Harry Potter!

  2. She's definitely one of my favourites!

  3. All of these are awesome picks!
    Luna and Katniss are both on my list!
    Celia is a great idea, too!


  4. I LOVE those Night Circus dresses. Maybe your BF can dress up as Marco? ;) (also, random side note. I can't get over how much Sarah Maas looks like Jennifer Lawrence.)

  5. Ahhh yes Celia! I remember reading about her dresses in the book! I would love any of those dresses even if it wasn't for Halloween hahaha. Though no one would know how I was dressing up as sadly :P

  6. We would be one seriously good looking couple lol! And I know right?! That expression is pure Lawrence (or so I thought til I saw this photo)

  7. I know right? I feel like it takes a way a little of the fun if no one recognizes it :(
