I don’t do costumes! Except on *very rare* occasions. I just don’t.
I really love this blog post on different fantasy characters a girl might dress up as. I’ve only read a few of the books mentioned, though all are at least on my radar and some are actually on my TBR pile. We have Cath from FANGIRL and Tamara Pierce’s Alanna and Maggie Stiefvater’s Blue Sargent and Elizabeth Bennett from (obviously) PRIDE AND PREJUDICE — those are the ones I’m actually familiar with. And a bunch of others that I don’t (yet) know.
What makes this post, at the Writer of Wrongs blog, special: pictures of the costume components and accessories for all the costumes!
I especially love Lola Nolan’s boots. Those boots make me want to read LOLA AND THE BOY NEXT DOOR. That cloak or coat or whatever it is is also extremely snazzy.
And Celaena Sardothien’s deer pendant from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas! What a cool pendant! I love it!
And check out how to turn your arm into a cyborg arm for CINDER by Marissa Meyer. Very cool, but it would require a steady hand and more artistic ability than I think I have.
Anyway, check out the post. It’s almost enough to make me want to put together a real costume this Halloween.
