Five Characters I’d Love to Dress up as for Halloween (Yes, I know its not Friday, but I don’t care!)
- Agent Peggy Carter: Not only am I a huge fan of the Badass that is Peggy Carter, I’m a huge fan of vintage styles. I think the forties has to be my favorite era for women’s vintage clothing and hairstyles. I could get my hair styled and swipe on some alluringly dark lipstick and totally own Peggy Carter.
- Eve Coffin: Caitlin Kittredge lured me in with her Nocturne City books but really bowled me over with her Coffin Hill comics. Eve Coffin is a Coffin Witch, one in a very long line. In her youth she was the wild and rebellious goth. In her later years she tried being the good cop and it only got her a bullet to the head. Now, I don’t think I have the balls to try contacts to somewhat imitate Eve’s weird eye, but I’m pretty sure I have all the right pieces (like combat boots and leather jackets) to cosplay Eve right out o my own closet. She’s my kind of girl.
- Mabel Pines: I think I may have a hard on for anything Kristin Schaal voices, but Mabel is the right mixture of cute and positively deranged that I love. All it would take is a cheap sweater and a bedazzler to turn myself into Mabel Pines. Be even better if I could turn my little brother into Dipper.
- Fem Castiel: While I love super strong female characters, I also love my boys. And sometimes I’m a little slow on the jokes just like our bro, Castiel. I call it being late to the party. My hubby calls it being a little slow. (Also, I want to be the other half of Destiel.) A cute skirt, button down combo paired with a trench coat and black wings would make me into the genderbent Castiel. All I might need is a Jensen Ackles of my very own.
- Karou: My best friend and I happened to send each other books for Christmas. It was one of those moments of perfect timing. I sent her Daughter of Smoke and Bone, about a blue haired teenager that was raised by something that looked an awful lot like the devil and believed in the power of wishes. Karou is another example of a strong female character, but after some failed past lives and present romances she’s feeling a little hard on herself. I’m looking for any reason to dye my hair again (and draw hamsas on my palms).
