Happy Halloween!

October 31st, 2011 • Kate

In honor of everyone’s favorite day to dress up and be someone other than yourself, I want to salute some great book-related costumes! First of all, I have to share the cutest little peddler, my friend Jay & Laura’s boy Henry, from Caps for Sale:

And some publishing folk really get into the holiday — like @melwriting, who dressed as Rory from Maureen Johnson‘s The Name of the Star! And the Little Brown crew always goes whole hog. Check out these characters from Laini Taylor‘s Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I haven’t seen anyone dressed as Lola yet, from Lola and The Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins, but maybe there’s just too many options! I’d love to see a Marie Antoinette in combat boots, though!

And of course, my little contribution to the holiday:

The Cat in the Hat family
What are you cooking up for the holiday? Any book-related costumes? Or have you seen any great ones on the interwebs? Please share your booty!

    So cute! My mom is an elementary school teacher and every year she dresses up as Thing 1 (with her friend as Thing 2) for Dr. Suess's birthday. No offense to Mom, but I think you guys have her beat…

    I did a wrap-up of literary Halloween costumes on my blog last week: http://bloggingforya.blogspot.com/2011/10/literar
    It is crazy the creativity (or lack thereof…) some people have! My favorite is a toss-up between the "Sexy Scrabble Board" and "Scout as HAM from To Kill a Mockingbird"

    It's not very original, but my son dressed up as Harry Potter. 🙂
