Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Characters Who We Would Want To Be For Halloween


top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.

 Today’s Topic: Top Ten Characters Who We Would Want To Be For Halloween

These characters would be a blast to be for Halloween!


1. The Giving Tree from The Giving Tree

Throughout the night, I could get shorter and shorter.

2. The Giver from The Giver

I can rock a pretty sweet beard.

3. Lyra from The Golden Compass

Henry could be my daemon.

4. Fire from Fire

Can you imagine how cool my hair would be?

5. The Girl on the Cover of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

She is just really neat. Maybe I could figure out a way to levitate?


I love the idea of family costumes, so these are the ones that I think would be the most fun to dress up as a family:

1. Cat and the Hat and Thing 1 & 2

I know it is kind of cliche, but they are a fun trio!

2. Elephant and Piggie

This is only a duo, so we’d have to figure out which parent wouldn’t dress up (or we could be the Pigeon!), but I would love to represent some Mo Willems!

3. Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Owl, or Roo

We are big Pooh fans here in the Moye house, so I know we’d all love to dress up as Pooh characters.

4. Harry Potter, Hermoine, and Ron

And my husband has red hair already!

5. Crayons from The Day the Crayons Quit

Love this book, love crayons, and would be fun to dress as them. I wonder which crayon will be Trent’s favorite!

Who would you love to dress up as?

  1. I totally cracked up when I read about getting shorter and shorter through the night. (Maybe that’s weird? This is what happens when you have to work at 6 am, and yet do nothing at work.)

    I love the idea of Lyra and her daemon – it’s perfect!! And I’m a sucker for Winnie the Pooh (I wish the kids I’m nannying loved the books more, but they flatly refuse to read them) – it’s such a great group costume. Really, you could get a whole family and the one next door there’s so many character options!

  2. Great ideas! Lyra is one of my all-time favorite book characters. Kellee, we really love family costumes, too, and did Thing 1 and Thing 2 and Cat on the Hat one year! We also had a great Where’s Waldo them one year. You might enjoy the photos in this post I wrote last week for my chronic illness blog – the text probably won’t be of interest to you, but I included a few photos of some of our best family costume years!

    Hope you both enjoyed a fun Halloween with your little ones!

    • We didn’t do a family costume this year although Trent was a T-rex and Jim and I wore T-rex shirts.

      I LOVE YOUR PHOTOS!!!! And your blog is so interesting. I wasn’t aware of your family’s hardships, and your blog is so inspiring. As a family that is going through a hardship right now, it is amazing to read about the joy in living.
