Not sure what to be for Halloween? Here are some spooky literary options for you.
How about James Joyce. A dapper bow tie, an eye patch, some well-groomed facial hair, and a copy of Ulysses. Companion Costume: June 16th aka, Bloomsday.
Or perhaps Daisy Buchanan? Recycle that flapper costume from 3 years ago. Pair it with a constantly lit cigarette and a copy of The Great Gatsby. Companion Costume: A yellow Rolls-Royce.
Captain Ahab? Take a general pirate/maritime look, add a whale-bone leg, maniacal expression, harpoon, and a copy of Moby Dick. Companion Costume: Bespectacled DJ, Moby.
Maybe Dickens is more your style...try Miss Havisham. All you need is a decaying wedding, dress-maybe covered in spider webs, lifelong disappointment, and a copy of Great Expectations. Companion Costume: Moldy wedding cake.
