By Mikey Rox for indiereader.com Think back to last Halloween. What did you dress as – a superhero, vampire, sexy kitten? There are so many words to sum up those costume choices, but boring will suffice. This year, ditch the dull duds and get gussied up in an outfit that you’ll be proud to wear.

This list of literary icons provides adequate inspiration to get you in the spirit, and all the pieces can be found in your closet, online, or in a costume or thrift shop. Now there’s absolutely no excuse to look lame… again. Time to get litty with it.
