Forget the overly-sexualised nurses and catwomen of the past celebrations - this year, get inspiration from the greats for your literary Halloween costumes. Somehow, it's nearly that time of year again. We're less than a month away from Halloween, and it's time to start planning your costume. Up until a couple of years ago, I was never that big on Halloween. The idea of knocking on someone's door for sweets just seemed a bit strange to me. Now though, I love the opportunity to get really creative with an outfit. Here's some ideas for literary Halloween costumes that will let your imagination run wild.
I'm going for literary Halloween costumes inspired by the classics to start with. Long, long before the girly, sparkly vampires of the Twilight world, Bram Stoker created a vampire that was truly scary. If you're going as one of the undead, eschew the Hollywood blockbusters and look to this book for ideas.
