The Most Iconic YA Characters Make Great Haloween Costumes

I love Halloween, and books, so you know I love it when those two things come together!

My Favorite YA Characters as Costumes

There are some iconic YA characters out there in the world that everyone knows. Even better, YA characters tend to have super simple outfits you can easily copy for a costume!

Some of My Favorite Teen Characters

  • Madeline
  • Katniss Everdeen
  • Alanna
  • The Handmaid’s Tale
  • Frodo
  • Percy Jackson
  • Gregor the Overlander
  • Harry Potter
  • Jace Lightwood

How Easy Would Those be to Make a Costume Out Of?

For Katniss, you’d need a leather jacket and a hair braid. Then there’s characters like Tamora Pierce’s Alanna (If you don’t know who that author or character is, you need to get on it stat. Tamora practically started YA Fantasy as we know it.) who you’d need a full gold suit of armor for.

Okay, I’ll admit these aren’t necessarily easy costumes. But they would all be super cool!
