Literary Halloween Costumes: Part 2

downloadHalloween is on Friday, so we decided to do another blog on literary costumes. These costumes are great for all you bibliophiles out there who are still deciding who to be.

Nancy Drew-To dress like Nancy Drew, all you really have to do is dress like a librarian without the glasses. Find a vintage dress or a plaid skirt and cardigan and a pair of comfortable shoes. Carry around a magnifying glass and the costume is complete.

The Raven-If you want to be the raven from Edgar Allan Poe’s famous poem of the same name, you should wear all black and black feathers in your hair. To take this costume to the next level, wear black wings as well. You will also need to say “nevermore” all night, to the point where it drives people crazy. In other words, this is a perfect costume if you get talkative when you are drunk.

The Man in the Yellow Hat from Curious George-This costume is easy to put together. All you have to do is dress in all yellow, wear a black belt and brown shoes, and find an obnoxiously tall yellow hat and you will be transformed into this classic character. If you have a child, dress him/her up as a monkey to make your costume more authentic.

If you want to have a relaxing Halloween in bed, dress up as Grandpa Joe from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. If you don’t want to be alone, invite three friends over and they can be Charlie’s other grandparents. Whenever you have to get up, just pretend that Charlie brought home a golden ticket and you can miraculously move again. You weren’t fooling anyone, Grandpa Joe.

Have a happy Halloween and please share your literary costumes with us.

      I am very pleased with the work you've done on my book.  Your suggestions and corrections were spot-on and you took my lumps of words and smoothed them out in to a what now reads as a polished and certainly more fluid piece. I wish you and Pypeline much success and do see a busy future for the two of you. I am working on other projects and will no doubt call on you again for help.  ”
