This is the first week that I’m joining with The Broke and the Bookish by creating a Top 10 Tuesday list! As someone who is a HUGE fan of Top 5 lists, I can imagine that creating a Top 10 list every week would be even better!
Anyway, with Halloween falling on Friday night, one of the options for this week’s list was about which characters I would want to dress up as for Halloween! This particular Halloween I’m not dressing up, since my boyfriend and I are joining his family to celebrate his father’s birthday on that night, but if I WERE dressing up, here are the Top 10 Characters Who I Would TOTALLY Want to Be For Halloween!
I am a huge fan of Game of Thrones (and if you’re not, shame on you), and from episode one, I knew that she was the perfect combination of beauty and bravery. Plus, I think that if my boyfriend and I both dressed up, we could totally go as the Khalessi and Khal Drogo. I would have to wear one of her fancier dresses though because her midriff-baring tops would force me to develop abs of steel
I haven’t seen Frozen
yet, but there’s something regally beautiful about Elsa’s cool (sorry, had to) and confident character. P.S. if you want your child to dress as Elsa for Halloween, the amazing Natasha gives instructions on how to make an Elsa costume on her blog Little Pink Monster.
3. Princess Buttercup
By now you’ve noticed that I have an affinity for characters with long blond hair–perhaps it’s because that’s the closest to my actual hair, and after years of doing musical theatre, I can’t stand wearing wigs! The Princess Bride is one of my favorite movies of all time, and I’ve wanted to BE Princess Buttercup since I was a little girl. Her costume wouldn’t be incredibly difficult to manufacture, as long as I didn’t go for her wedding gown or expect my costume to flutter in the wind as I jump from a tower.
Seriously, who doesn’t love Belle’s yellow ballgown from Beauty and the Beast? When I went to see a high school production of that show, I thought, “Mannnnn, that girl is so lucky to be wearing that dress!”
5. Smoke Monster
Remember LOST? That show was awesome, right? And I always thought the Smoke Monster was the coolest (or hottest) character on the show. Is this a feasible costume? Eh, probably not.
6. Dorothy Gale
I’ve actually been a version of this before. I wore a white t-shirt, blue and white skirt and attempted to cover a pair of heels in red glitter. Sadly, I just ruined both the heels and part of my living room floor :-/ But one day I’d like to wear the real thing: jumper, braids AND ruby slippers!
Not Sexy R2-D2 or anything like that. I would just like to be able to create something that involves a rolling chair and an R2-D2 costume.
Okay, if someone would give me a costume for Rapunzel from Tangled, I would brave the wig because I love that movie, and if you’re going to grow your hair that long, then you better work it!
9. Scarlett O’Hara
I’ve worn a petticoat once before when I was a flower girl in my aunt and uncle’s wedding, but I’d like the whole shebang for Miss O’Hara!
If I am ever able to rock a body like Anne Hathaway or Halle Berry, then yes, I will be Catwoman.
If you could be anything for Halloween, what would you choose?
