how to have a bookish halloween

  • About the author EB

If my boyfriend and I had followed through on our original plan to be Curious George and the Man in the Yellow Hat this year, we could have posted our photos to this Flickr group of literary Halloween costumes. (If you try to tell me that Curious George doesn’t count as literature, I’m going to have to fight you). The best costumes will be posted on The New Yorker‘s book blog. So far there’s multiple Edgar Allen Poes, a Hester Prynne, a Hunter S. Thompson, and more. I guess technically I could post this photo of my costume last year (please avert your eyes if you’re easily offended—I’m the one that’s not the dragon, not the garden gnome, and not the werewolf bar mitzvah):
