Book Character Costumes: What Would You Go As? #BookBloggerHop #coffeeramblings

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.

Would you ever consider dressing up as a book character? If so, which one?

Welcome to my book themed Halloween party…

As an adult, my two favorite costumes that I collected items for and put together are a gypsy and a pirate. So if I combine those costumes and make some adjustments, I could easily be the ghost of Isolde, Fable’s mother. I have the hair, naturally, and even the freckles, but I could never pass for Fable because of age. Isolde would be just the right age, and how fun to be a dead character – so the ghost of that character. I have the pendant necklace and a billowy white peasant blouse. I would just need a fake knife to attach to my costume. I wore black gaucho pants with knee-high black boots with my pirate costume, which should work for my ghost of Isolde. I could make my face even paler than it already is with makeup to give it that ghostly look…

Now, it’s your turn. Your coming to my party – what book character would you come as? What would you use to put the look together?

  1. As someone with very little imagination and even less of a sense of adventure I would come as either a much-older-than-the-character Hermione Granger complete with grey skirt, grey jumper, white blouse and Gryffindor scarf. Or perhaps even the jeans and tops she wore whilst they had that nasty horcrux.
    Failing that I’d come as Jessie, from KF Breene’s Magical Midlife Madness – I’m still older but a mature heroine who’s a witch is always a winner for me!

    1. We get to see Hermione as an older mom in the last book when it fast-forwards at the very end. I think that’s an excellent costume. I have just the wand you can borrow 👻

  2. I was never creative when it came to costumes. I’d probably go from someone in Harry Potter, Star Wars (no Princess Leia buns, though), or a Marvel superhero. Is my nerdiness showing?

    1. Ha! Ha! You know I’m right there with you. And it won’t show unless you do the double bun look – instead, go for the more recent hair style 👻

    1. I’d have to keep a few pieces for you to throw on. Or maybe just a wand and you can be an unnamed person from HP disguised as a muggle 👻

        1. I guess even the main cast wore regular clothes once in a while. I’ll hide the wand. (But can I at least be a powerful unnamed witch?)

  3. Eesh, that’s a tough question. Off the top of my head I’d say maybe Arwen from LOTR. If I thought about it longer, I’d probably come up with others, too. Costume parties are fun!

    1. I would have the necklace for you to borrow. I wear it sometimes and only one person has recognized what it is ❤️


  4. I love your choice, Tessa. I am not very creative, I dress up as a witch any time I need a costume, so I guess I am a character from MacBeth, or The Witches by Roald Dahl.

  5. I think it might be fun to go as Mrs. Bennet of Pride and Prejudice. I have the age, and figure, so it’s just a matter of some billowy period dresses!
