Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish where we post 10 of our favorite things in each category. 

Top Ten Characters I Would Totally Want to be for Halloween

So I'm gonna have a little fun with this one. For every character, I'm gonna tell you how to create your costume if you wanted to be the character. 

1. Cho Chang
I'm actually going as Cho Chang for Halloween this year, and I'm super pumped. I plan to take a more unique take on the classic outfit with a button down, a navy cardigan, a tie, a navy skirt, and navy knee-high socks. Harry Potter love. 

2. June Iparis
Beautiful art...BY MARIE LU. June would be so fun to dress up as. I see her wearing tight black leggings, and a navy soldier-ish jacket along with super awesome boots. Can I just vote Emma Watson to play June please?

3. Lena Duchannes
A bit disappointed that they didn't give Lena the crescent moon shaped mark on her cheekbone in the movie, but there are so many things you could steal from her. Take a long billowy skirt, a loose sweater, combat boots, a smoky eye and a bunch of sharpie drawings on your arms, and you're good to go. 

4. Bellatrix Lestrange
And my favorite Harry Potter character of all time...Bellatrix. Who doesn't love a crazy Voldemort-worshipping maniac? Everything about her screams Halloween. And her wand. YES. Take any generic witch costume, rip it up, and hairspray your hair like crazy? BAM.

5. Clove from Hunger Games
I love her so much. She's crazy and phenomenal with knives. For her costume, I think that khaki army pants, motorcycle boots, black vest, and a red jacket will do. And then do the awesome hairdo. Get a few knives and ...perfection!

6. A Glader/Teresa
I love The Maze Runner world, but being a girl there isn't much to take from the first book. But if you want to dress up as the girls from Group B, just take light cotton clothing in dull colors and worn out shoes with some kind of weapon-looking thing. If wanting to do Teresa in particular, just find a blue button down and do the same.

7. An Erudite
Bring it on. If I was in a faction, it would definitely be Erudite, and I love their sense of fashion. That goes to say for all of the other factions as well, but for Erudite you just need crisp office clothes in blue and white and pile them together. Throw on a pair of glasses? Sure.

8. Mary Poppins
A classic, and Julie Andrews is absolutely gorgeous. A old white button down tucked into a black skirt with some black tights and a hat with flowers strung on it? Get the umbrella, a blue coat, and you're ready to go.

9. Cinder
Gorgeous fan art, and almost exactly how I pictured Cinder's face. For her, just throw your hair up in a messy bun, throw on shabby brown work clothes, dirty up your face a bit, and then take some silver stage makeup and create your hand. 

10. Max from Where the Wild Things Are
So fun to recreate. Take a onesie, get some ears on their, and then make yourself a crown and tail. You could even go with a hoodie with ears and sweatpants. Definitely the most comfy costume. 

So excited for Halloween? What about you? What are some of your ideas?


  1. I like your take on the Top Ten. Those are great characters from great stories. Happy Halloween! kelley—the road goes ever ever on

  2. Great picks! Coincidentally, I was also Cho Chang for Halloween one year. My neighbor dressed up as Hermoine, so we went around together. I really like your other choices, too; Clove would be interesting to portray, I was Katniss in sixth grade; and Bellatrix would definitely be cool to dress up as. I don't know if I could ever forgive her for killing Sirius, though. It might even be painful enough to prevent me from trying to dress up as her. Anyways, nice list!:)
