TTT: Ten Characters from books I'd like to be for Halloween

art by Lady Katsa

  1. Katsa from Graceling by Kristin Cashore with her two different colored eyes and spectacular skills she is graced with.
  2. Lucy Pevensie in The Chronicles of Narnia with her gift of devotion to Aslan.
  3. Seraphina from Seraphina by Rachel Hartman being half dragon, half human would be a cool costume.
  4. Karou from Daughter of Smoke and Bones by Laini Taylor series with her beautiful blue hair.
  5. The Disreputable Dog from the Old Kingdom series by Garth Nix, my favorite character in the series. Who doesn't love dressing up like a dog when they get a chance?
  6. Frodo Baggins from The Lord of the Rings series by JRR Tolkien. I think dressing up as a hobbit would be a kick.
  7. Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling for two reasons: 1. She has frizzy hair, I have frizzy hair, 2. When she wants to know information she goes to the library, so do I.
  8. Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins. Her hair is gold. How cool is that?
  9. Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables by JM Montgomery. I think I could actually pull off this costume without too much trouble.
  10. The Cowardly Lion from The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. "If I were king of the forest...."

Unfortunately, I won't be dressing up for Halloween. I will be answering the door to those who are costumed. Over 100 children will ring our bell.


  1. Effie would be fun to dress up as! When I was younger and the Harry Potter books were still being released I would play Harry Potter with my first grade bff and his little brother and since I was the only girl, I always got to be Hermonie and I was thoroughly pleased with my role.

  2. I could definitely pass as Hermione as well. Fabulous list. Good luck with all of the children knocking at your door!

  3. Yes, definitely Effie! I LOVE the Butterfly-Effie that you pictured too, one of my favorite looks. Karou is such a great choice too (I have always wanted blue hair but am way too afraid!) Great list!

    1. I look at people with alternative colors of hair and wonder how they have enough nerve to do it.
