This Week’s Question
Have you ever considered dressing up as a book character? If so, which one?
Submitted by Julie @ Stepping Stones Book Reviews.
Um, of course! I’ve often thought it would be fun to dress up as a book character for Halloween or a con.
The second part of this question, however, is tough! There are so many iconic characters out there that I love. So I decided to pick three 😂
- Tarisai from Raybeaer: I’m sure you knew Tarisai would make her way on to this list. First, I absolutely adore her. She’s an incredible character with a lot of heart. Bonus, though, is that fact that she wears such colorful clothing! The wraps that Jordan Ifueko describes sounds so beautiful and I want to wear them all! And I do have a fancy crown handcrafted by the author that would do perfectly with the costume.
- Vin from the Mistborn series: Look. I like being barefoot and I want to wear a Mistborn cloak. Also, Vin is a badass! I love her character throughout the series and her character arc is definitely one of the best I’ve encountered in fantasy. But, yeah… I want the cloak!
- Joniza from Little Thieves: This is a very recent favorite read, but Joniza is basically me in a book. She’s older than the main cast, she’s a smart-ass, and she loves all the young idiots she has to deal with. She’s also a bard and I do love to sing! Perform… not so much… but that’ neither here nor there! Also, she’s constantly wrapped in the warmest clothes she can find, which would come in handy for Halloween in New England, lol.
Those are just a few characters I would consider as viable costume choices, but there are so many more. Perhaps, one year, I’ll get my costume game in gear before, ya know, a week before Halloween and actually make one of these costumes a reality.
What book character would you dress up as? Have you ever gone as a book character for Halloween or other reasons? What character was it? Let me know in the comments!
And, as always, happy reading!
