We can all agree that our favorite books have some really awesome, kick-butt heroines. So when you are planning your Halloween costume, why not look to some of your favorite titles for a little inspiration? We’ve got the how-to on dressing like your fave lit chick, below.
Katniss Everdeen (Hunger Games)
Who doesn’t want to be the girl on fire? To get Katniss’ look, don a flowy red dress, fiery red shoes and a token of your district, of course! For your hair, mimic Katniss’ signature side braid.
Hermione Granger (Harry Potter)
Everybody loves Hermione, but it might be hard to guess your character if you’re just dressed as a muggle. An easy fix? Go for her Hogwarts uniform. Try a plaid skirt with stockings and a V-neck sweater over a collared shirt. Just don’t forget your robes and wand! Snag Hermione’s tangle of waves by curling your hair with a 1-inch barrel iron.

Cameron “Cammie” Morgan (Gallagher Girls series)
We wish we could go to a school for spies, even if we had to wear a uniform. Create your own Gallagher Academy uniform with a plaid skirt and a white collared shirt under a sweater vest, then DIY your G.A. patch with a skull and crossbones. Sweet white knee-high socks and black mary-janes seal the deal. You’ll be ready to take down The Circle.

Max Ride (Maximum Ride)
Despite her thirteen-foot wingspan, Max dresses like any other girl. Wear jeans and a zip-up moto jacket with feathered angel wings.
