*Literature Characters/Authors

Dress up as Jane Austen, Romeo/Juliet, or Sherlock Holmes. Show your intelligent, bookworm side with these creative suggestions.


Show your earthy, green side. Dress up in all black with glow in the dark stars on you to be a constellation. Buy a dress that's all green and put leaves all over it to be a Forest or Jungle princess. Just take a look at nature around you and I'm sure you'll think of some amazing costume ideas!

Dress up in a kimono as Mulan, a ball gown as Cinderella, or a polka dotted dress as Minnie. Choose your favorite character or the one that best fits your personality. Any one of them will show that you have a fun and child-like aspect to your persona.

Are you in a high class of society, dignified, and fashionable? Then drape a Grecian dress over your body, place some fig leaves in your hair, and keep your head held high this Halloween!

      Interesting hub. You said re.the pirate costume, to show 'how you don't quite fit into the norms of society'. I don't suppose this quite describes you, does it? (smile)

      Thanks for reading and voting up! Well, you never know when someone's going to throw a costume party, right? Well, I'm halfway kidding, but I did write this some time ago. You could always book mark it for future use. Thanks for commenting!

      You've got some great tips here, of course it isn't the season right now, but it isn't that far away, either. You get a vote-up and useful from me.
