Top Ten Characters I Would Totally Want to Be for Halloween
The topic doesn’t specify, so I am assuming characters from any type of media are fair game, not just ones from books. I also want to highlight characters I think would be fun to dress as, not just characters I like, so anyone who looks too “realistic contemporary” might have to be passed over.
- Elsa from Frozen: Fairly easy to do if one already happens to own a sparkly blue semiformal dress and has braidably long hair.
- Eowyn from The Lord of the Rings: One of my favorite literature characters, and she has some beautiful dresses in the movies.
- The TARDIS from Doctor Who: Technically, yes, she is a character. However, I would like to go as a creative interpretation of the TARDIS (example), not the TARDIS’s human incarnation.
- Galadriel from The Lord of the Rings: I would love to be as graceful as an Elf, and I love her outfits and jewelry from the movies.
- Merida from Brave: A strong female protagonist who also has a great wardrobe.
- A Hogwarts student: I’ve dressed as a Durmstrang student in the past. After college graduation, however, I finally have a long black robe I can utilize! I can just vary the colors of the outfit and go as anyone from Hermione to Luna!
- Guinevere: Ok, or any medieval-literature noble female character. I just want an awesome dress.
- Rapunzel: Did I mention I can rock a braid, and that I want a princess dress?
- Lucy Pevensie from The Chronicles of Narnia: One of my favorite book characters, and you could build a costume for her in so many ways: winter coat, queen dress, saving the kingdom gear, etc.
- Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games: She doesn’t speak to me quite so much as some other characters, but, again, I love the options one would have creating a costume for her. You could wear anything from an arena uniform, to her signature archery outfit, to one of the dresses Cinna designs for her.
- Bonus! Wonder Woman: Although I’d probably go for an interpretation where I get to wear more clothing than the classic costume allows. Even looking beyond the practicality of fighting in her costume, or whether it’s objectifying, October where I live is not warm. I need more clothes!
