Want your Halloween costume to be bookish or literary this October 31? ME TOO.
I’ve been thinking up young adult book related costumes for awhile. Below are some book character costume ideas to inspire you!
YA Book Character Halloween Costume Ideas
Hazel Grace, The Fault in Our Stars
Although this costume may be a bit morbid, I love the idea of dressing up as someone brave and funny – and who has great taste in ironic clothing.
Search Zazzle or RedBubble for a recreation of the pipe shirt Hazel wears in Amsterdam. It’s also a fairly easy costume to put together (minus the air tank, unless you have one lying around…).
And, as a bonus, most people have heard of or seen the movie, so you won’t spend the whole night explaining your costume…
America, The Selection
This costume is basically an excuse to put on a prom dress for those of us who are way too old to wear our ancient prom dresses anymore. I love this ruffly number that looks an awful lot like the dress on the cover.
If you don’t have dresses that look like this one, you can check out local thrift shops or Goodwill. The bonus on this one, is it’s one piece and you’re DONE.
Tris Prior, Divergent
Tris is the new Katniss for 2014 Halloween costumes. If you’ve got tight black pants and a red tank top, you’re good to go.
If you’ve got a boyfriend that looks like Four, then 1. extra points and 2. hold on to him for all time.
Rose Hathaway, The Vampire Academy
So, I think movie makers saved money this year by letting Katniss, Tris and Rose Hathaway all share the same pieces. Black leather pants + anything that looks like a biker would wear it are IN for YA movies.
For this one, more cleavage is a must. 😉
Thomas, The Maze Runner
This is for the man in your life – unless you’re a guy reading this post. If so, THANK YOU. You’re a rarity in the world of young adult book readers. Never leave, ok?!
This is a great couple outfit because Theresa’s outfit is pretty basic too. Just make sure you show up to your Halloween gathering with dirt and sweat on your clothes.
Mia, If I Stay
Mia gave us some options. We’ve got, out-of-body experience Mia from the hospital…
…and the out-with-Adam-on-a-rainy-day Mia.
Both very cute with fairly simple pieces to assemble.
What YA book character would you LOVE to dress up as (for Halloween or any other time)?
