    Here is some inspiration for costumes that will satisfy the book-lover within you:

     

    1. Max and/or a Wild Thing from Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak

    Of course, if you’re feeling festive, you could make any of these costumes into their zombie or dead counterparts. However, the trick to a good literary Halloween costume is to make it something very well known to avoid the confused looks from others but also not something that is overdone.

    Happy writing and happy Halloween!
