Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme host by The Broke and the Bookish. There were two possible options for this week’s top ten Tuesday, and I thought this one would be more fun, since I don’t really watch or read scary books or movies.
1. Hermione Granger
All you need for this is a black skirt, white shirt and knee high socks or black tights. You can buy Gryffindor ties very cheaply off Amazon if you want a cheaper alternative. However you can also buy Hogwarts robes, Hermione’s wand or a time turner necklace for more money. I currently have a set of Hogwarts robes on my Christmas list.
2. Clary Fray
Clary is such a ninja, all in black with her runes. This costume is so easy to make, all you need is a black vest top, a black leather jacket, black jeans and a pair of black combat boots. If you want you can draw on runes or use temporary tattoo runes. Simples!
3. Tris Prior
This costume is really similar to Clary’s, however instead of runes, you may want to draw on or temporary tattoo Tris’ iconic three birds tattoo.
4. Katniss Everdeen
For this costume, you need natural, earthy coloured clothes, with a mockingjay pin and a toy archery set. For bonus points, plait your hair in Katniss’ signature braid.
5. Luna Lovegood
Luna would just be so much fun to dress up as. All you really need is my layers of quirky, brightly coloured clothes. You could also get a pair of Luna’s cool glasses or necklaces, rings or bracelets. Dressing as Luna, your key aim is to stand out from the crowd.
6. Annabeth Chase
The best way to go about this costume is to buy an orange T-shirt and using either permanent marker or material pens write on the T-shirt ‘Camp Half Blood’. Pair this unique new T-shirt with jeans, and trainers, perfect for fighting monsters in.
7. Capitol Citizen
Again this one would be great fun, all you need is brightly coloured clothes, a brightly coloured wig or hair dye and some unusual make up. This would not only be really fun, but also simple and quite cheap, as long you own some unusual clothes.
8. Celaena Sardothian
You can choose either a ninja like fighting outfit, or one of the gorgeously described dresses that Sarah J. Maas puts her in. Let’s be honest, both options are absolutely fabulous and mean you will outshine all of your other friends.
9. Tessa Gray
Just imagine the beautiful dresses you could wear to dress up as Tessa. The range of gorgeous dresses Cassandra Flare describes for Tessa almost makes me jealous. Admittedly this costume may be harder to find, but the search would be worth it.
Personally I believe readers are just as much a part of the story as the characters are, so dress up as a reader. Dress like you would any other day and then carry around one of your favourite books. Voilà! Costume sorted!
