Top Five Wednesday: Bookish Costumes


Happy Halloween readers! Wouldn’t it be nice when you went trick-or-treating, you received books inside of candy??

In honor of Halloween, today’s Top Five Wednesday is all about characters I’d love to cosplay as or be for Halloween. While I admit that I’m not the biggest costume person, who wouldn’t want to be their favorite book character for a day?

Cath from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell- I think my wardrobe is most prepared for me dressing as Cath. Cardigan ✓ Jeans ✓ Hair in messy bun ✓ Sneakers ✓ Glasses ✓

This cosplay would also give me the perfect excuse to finally buy a Carry On-inspired t-shirt from Red Bubble. I’ve seen this before, but I’d also love to couples cosplay as Cath and Levi.


Luna Lovegood (Harry Potter)- I feel like all of these characters would give me excuses to supplement my fandom wardrobe, but I would love to get my own pair of Luna’s radish earrings and Gryffindor hat—I would basically make myself into the real-life Funko version.


wonderwwDiana (Wonder Woman:Warbringer) by Leigh Bardugo- Probably cheating a little bit with this one, but Diana is a YA book character now, thanks to Leigh Bardugo. I’ve always wanted to dress up as Wonder Woman and buy some WW-inspired leggings. And of course, the Lasso.

Lena (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares)- I would 100% dress up as Lena only because I already have the brown hair AND be able to replicate the jeans based on the original covers.

Manon Blackbeak (Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas)- Dressing as Manon would be a complete 180 from my usual self. Anyone know where I can find iron nails and a red cloak?


Top 5 Wednesday is a collaborative group of book bloggers from various platforms who love sharing lists on Wednesdays. The T5W group can be found here on Goodreads.

What book character would you dress up as for Halloween? What’s your costume this year? Share in the comments!
