Terrifyingly Literary Costumes (That May Not Actually Require a Costume)

Big Brother: If I understood this book correctly, you will simply need to watch everyone all the time.

Moby Dick: Piss off someone very early in the evening and then spend the rest of the night avoiding them.

Ebenezer Scrooge: Refuse to participate in the festivities and then allow three people dressed as ghosts to change your mind.

Miss Trunchbull: Instead of giving out candy to trick-or-treaters, eat it in front of them. Tell them, “Much too good for children!”

 Jessica Bates shares her name with Debra Winger’s character’s
undercover persona in the 1987 neo-noir thriller Black Widow. However,
she doesn’t really recommend that movie.
