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 Weasley
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.
