If Literary Characters Dressed Up for Halloween


Halloween is great, what with all the candy, costumes, and probably something else that begins with a c. But what if your favorite literary characters were to dress up for the holiday? Who would they be?

1. George Wickham: the Scarlet Pimpernel

A dashing costume for a dashing (though disreputable) lad.

2. Daisy Buchanan: a princess

Princesses are classic and elegant, just like Daisy herself. She would love both the attire and attention.

3. Scout Finch: Batman

Because can’t you just picture it?

4. Fred and George Weasley: George and Fred Weasleyhalloween-1743251_1920.jpg

They’re Fred and George Weasley. What more needs to be said?

5. Mr. Rochester: a fortune teller


6. Winnie the Pooh: a bee

So he could try to get closer to the honey.

7. Julia (from 1984): a nun

She would get points in Big Brother world, but points for irony from Winston.

8. Catherine from Wuthering Heights: a vampire bride

It’s pretty close to her real life, actually.
