Happy Top Ten Tuesday!
True story: I have dressed up as most of these characters at one point or another.
1. Hermione Granger from Harry Potter
I never actually dressed up as Hermione, but I always thought I looked way more like her than Emma Watson did. For one thing, I have DARK brown hair, and for another, my hair is/was actually messy most of the time.
2. Jo March from Little Women
I have dressed up as Jo. With a patch on the back of my dress. Nobody got it.
3. Eponine from Les Miserables
I did this in middle school. Suffice it to say, NOBODY got it.
4. Arwen from Lord of the Rings
I've been told I look kinda like Liv Tyler?
5. Data from Star Trek: The Next Generation
So, not a book character, but I acquired a Data mask at a Star Trek exhibit at a young age, and my sister and I went trick-or-treating as Worf and Data respectively. The best, most appropriate costumes for elementary-schoolers.
6. Captain Janeway from Star Trek: Voyager
Also not a book character, but when I reprised my role as Data for a Science Theme Day this past summer at camp, a fellow teacher told me she had once dressed up as Janeway. And I wish I had too.
7. Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter
I'm not a blonde, but I've definitely got the dreamy, far-off stare. And then I could wear really weird things like griffin hats.
8. Elphaba from Wicked
From the book, before it was a musical. I painted my face entirely green, and there's a prominent photo in my high school yearbook. The only time I was ever pictured outside of the standard photo. Not to brag, but the next year, I saw a couple of younger girls with green faces and witches' hats. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
9. The Wizard Samarkar from the Eternal Sky
Haven't done this yet, but a strong woman in wizard's robes sounds up my alley.
10. Hrahima from the Eternal Sky
I'm not sure how I would do this, but it would be cool to be a tiger-woman.
