Dressing Up for Halloween: Great Book Characters

If we lived in my happy place, Halloween participants would all be required to dress as their favorite book characters. Here are some costumes I would put together. Can you name the book and/or characters I'm dressed as?










Answers: Watership Down; Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird; The Mouse and His Child; Cher Ami from Cher Ami and Major Whittlesby; Elphaba from Wicked; Go, Dog, Go; Ignacius from Confederacy of Dunces; and Captain Ahab from Moby Dick.



Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each Tuesday That Artsy Reader Girl assigns a topic and then post her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join her and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.

  4. Aaaah Debbie!! You are se creative! I agree completely. We do that every year at school - the kids must dress up as their favorite fictional character. I always get a lot of Doctor Seuss and Harry Potter. Haven't done it this year though. So sad!

    Hope you are having a good week. Here's my Should have, could have, would have Halloween reads

  8. I love this post so much! I guessed Watership Down and Scout correctly and I'm shaking my head that I missed Captain Ahab and Elphaba. So fun!

  9. It feels strange not to dress up this year. Maybe I'll do something just to amuse myself even though all I will do on Saturday is grocery shop. :-)

    1. I think I'm going to dress up and sit on the porch, a safe distance from a pumpkin of candy.

  11. I've never been a huge fan of dressing up, but this would be a cool idea. I'll admit I don't really know any of these characters except for Scout. I must say though, seeing Go, Dog, Go! being featured is the best thing I've seen all day!
