Unique And Affordable Literary Halloween Costumes

It’s cooling off and coffee shops are finally re-introducing pumpkin-flavored lattes. This means just one thing: the season for costume shopping has arrived at last.

During previous Halloweens, we’ve seen enough "Clockwork Orange" rip offs, and we’re pretty sure drawing a lightening bolt on your forehead with eyeliner doesn’t qualify as creative.

This year, find a unique way of expressing your bookishness. Instead of a striped-stockinged, wart-wearing witch, try the 1692 version, like Elizabeth from “The Crucible.” Instead of a wild-haired Einstein, try a wild-haired Twain (just add antique pipe). Click below to discover more literate, and highly affordable, Halloween costume suggestions.
