Top Ten Tuesday: 5 Character-Inspired Costume Ideas

It’s another Top Ten Tuesday, now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl!

Top Ten Tuesday at The Green Mockingbird

This week’s official topic: Halloween Freebie

I’m not a fan of Halloween, but that’s neither here nor there. I AM all about dressing up as something fun for an old-fashioned fall festival this time of year! (My church always has a huge one with lots of candy and treats!

SO… I have chosen a few characters whose professions would be great and easy-ish costume ideas! I think I’ve dressed up as most of these at one time or another. I’m sticking to girls with my list, too, just for fun. (Clicking on the book titles will take you to my reviews!)

  1. A cupcake baker would be a great costume. I’m picturing someone who goes around handing out cupcakes in exchange for Halloween candy. Ha!

    My TTT.

    • The fun part is I really AM a cupcake baker! πŸ™‚ But I’m not sure my “bottom line” can handle that kind of cupcake output. That is a fun idea, though! πŸ™‚

    • I’d really love to be a character from classic literature some time! I’m not sure who, though. Who would you pick?
