List Rules Halloween costume ideas based in the world(s) of literature. Vote for the best, most literary costume ideas!

From your dusty shelves to your wardrobe, great literature should happen to you this Halloween. If books have taught us anything, it's that it's the attention to detail that sells the story. Whether you are sipping caramel appletinis or nom-noming boiled peanuts in the graveyard, the ideal Halloween costume should give you the confidence of Katniss Everdeen and the cleverness of Willy Wonka. Because frankly, my dear? Last year everyone came stumbling into the karaoke dive like a wrecking ball. That is something we would like to see, um quoth the Raven? Nevermore. Let's make this year a Halloween to bookmark with lots of literary costume ideas.

Vote for the craftiest attention to button eyes and blood splatter. Remember, you shouldn't have to have the deep pockets of Jay Gatsby to look like a hundred or more well-loved pages, so the more potential for thrift, the better. As always, it is important to complement your best chocolate-eating grin for the occasion. So dust off your Holden Caulfield jacket or redden your Lady Macbeth hands and vote for the best literary costumes below.
