Literary Character Costumes

Almost every good piece of literature provides a great way to bring a story to life by creating wonderful Halloween costumes. This doesn't have to be a huge undertaking by trying to become Moby Dick – in fact, by dressing up as your favorite hero, heroine, villain or maybe one of your child's favorite characters from one of their most treasured books – creating a costume inspired by a book is a great way to develop a costume that impresses. These costumes can be created from classics or the most recent best seller and Costume Works is a great way to see some of these fantastic ideas. No matter what story or book you choose, these costumes always take on a life of their own.

Children's literary Halloween costumes always are a perfect way for kids to experience Halloween in a new way that creates memories. Children love books and they love the characters that each book develops on paper. By bringing these characters to life, children can act out what they have only read about. Trick or treating as Little Red Riding Hood, Charlie Brown or any one of the magnificent characters from Alice In Wonderland lets kids show off their imagination. Don't forget about the great hero and heroine characters for teenagers and pre-teens. Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Percy Jackson can be brought to life this Halloween!

Adults can also share in the fun by showing off their love of good literature by dressing up in their favorite literary character costumes. The ideas are as numerous as books on the shelves in the library. Classics like The Wizard of Oz and Frankenstein along with newer favorites like The Hunger Games and the Twilight books all provide some great characters that can make an instant hit among friends. With some great make-up, clothes and accessories, these costumes can beat any mass produced Halloween costume found on-line or at the store.

Literary costumes could be the one costume category that presents an amazing opportunity to design and create your original Halloween costume. After you put down your favorite book and dress up as your favorite character, make sure to take a picture and share it with Costume Works and the whole world! Who knows, maybe someone will be inspired by your costume and start reading all about the character they met in person!
