Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today’s a Halloween freebie, and I wanted to talk about something I have personally never even done but really want to do some time, and that is wearing costumes for Halloween! I’d especially love to be able to dress up and cosplay as one of my favorite bookish characters.
Have you ever done a bookish costume/cosplay? If so, feel free to let me know and share pictures!
In the meantime, here are the characters I’d love to pretend to be for a day/night:
Sure, Celaena would be cool to cosplay too, but Manon is epic and my favorite character from the series. I’d love to cosplay as the badass witch.
Long white hair/wig, worn loose or in a braid. Black riding gear (necessary for wyvern riding). And a long, red cape. Oh, no weapons needed, just long deadly claws/nails.
How awesome would this cosplay be for two BFF’s? I’d love to cosplay as Danika, anyone want to be my Bryce?
For Bryce: long red hair, sexy short dress, pointy ears
For Danika: long blond hair, streaked with all the colors of the rainbow, black leather jacket inscribed with the words “Through love, all is possible”
Tori may be the most human in this entire list, that doesn’t mean she can’t handle herself!
Red curly hair/wig, black leather “battle gear”, belt filled with potions and magical artifacts, a Queen of Spades playing card, and long purple cape. Three male friends would be welcome to cosplay Tori’s three mages.
Who doesn’t want a chance to cosplay the badass Alex Stern, survivor with a rattler’s soul, who can also see ghosts? I would!
Long black hair/wig, black clothes, umm tattoo sleeves? (technically, they could be ‘magically hidden’ so without could work too)
I love the fierce and funny, waffle loving heartrender and I’d love to cosplay her, if only for the chance to wear a gorgeous kefta. And to be able to eat waffles and yet be completely in character!
Long brown hair/wig, red kefta with black embroidery (for the order of the heartrenders)
Though it felt like everyone was swooning over Geralt when the TV show came out, I immediately adored and rooted for Yennefer, the powerful sorceress with a painful past.
Curly black hair/wig, violet eyes/contact lenses, velvet choker with obsidian star, wears black/white clothing only
Jude may be one of the only humans on this list, but she can scheme and manipulate with the best of the faeries. I’d rather have her on my side than not, thank you very much.
Brown hair styled into two horns, blue dress, necklace of rowan berries (for protection against faerie compulsion)
I so badly want to do an Umbrella Academy group cosplay, pretty, pretty please?
School outfits, eye masks
Which bookish character would you love to cosplay as?
