Reader Friday: Which literary character would you be for Halloween?

It's mid-October, and we're getting in the mood for Halloween....

So, which literary or thriller character would you choose to be for  Halloween? Jack Reacher? Jack the Ripper? Jacqueline de Bellefort from Death on the Nile? 

To get your inspiration engines started, here's a link to some literary character costumes squidoo.com

And some more female characters...

  1. Jason from the Friday the Thirteenth franchise. I play him every year at a Halloween party. It's expected.

    1. OMG, I can see you as Jason, but like Kathryn, I've never seen the movies. Too scary for me.

  2. That's a good one, Joe! I find that character to be almost too scary. I've never watched one of the movies--the trailers were enough!

  3. For me, my Halloween character loves a nice chianti and some fava beans. :-)

  4. Girl with the Dragon Tattoo would be fun to try.

  5. I would be Joanna Archer form Vicki Pettersson's Signs of the Zodiac series. She's an awesome kick-butt heroine!

  6. My favorite Halloween costume is a riff on Robert Howard's most famous creation.

    It's a perfect character for a weightlifter who wears glasses: I wear a Viking's horned helmet, a leather vest, leggings, and boots. I carry a battle-axe, and around my neck is a book with "Overdue!" on the cover.

    Who am I? Conan the Librarian.

  7. It would be a blast to shock all my friends by going prim and proper, and blond and straight-haired (i.e. wig, big time): Nancy Drew! Me in a sweater set and penny loafers and string of pearls--hilarious!

  8. My daughter is going as Captain America this year, so apparently I'll be going as Black Widow. Although all the costumes I've seen so far are dubious.

  9. I love the idea of Nancy Drew, Lisa! Conan the Librarian? Sounds like a great action figure, Old' Reb!
