Edgy Halloween Looks Inspired By Books

With Halloween just two weeks away, I am still scrambling to put together this year’s Halloween costume. If you’re like me and still looking for some costume ideas and inspiration, check out these two edgy Halloween looks for book lovers.

 

– PUNK POE –

Punk Poe

 

It’s no secret that I am a big Edgar Allan Poe fan and I’ve had a lot of fun putting together Poe – inspired outfits in the past, including this one featuring my Nevermore Ring, but this year I decided to go really wild and give my favorite Poe poem an edgy punk rock vibe.  So I started with my Raven Stacking Bracelets from my new line of Leather – Bound Book Bracelets and combined them with some distressed jeans, leather books and jacket, and lots of cool and creepy raven – themed accessories for a Halloween look with lots of poetic attitude.

– MR. HYDE –

Jekyll and Hyde

 

Next up, I made this cool Halloween outfit inspired by the evil Mr. Hyde from The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. I really loved this dramatic black and red skull tank that I found on Polyvore so I used it as a starting point for the entire outfit. I added a tailored jacket and top hat for a cool steampunk vibe and then added a lot of fun accessories, including a walking stick with a skull topper, skull ring, and my new Jekyll and Hyde leather bracelet. As the perfect finishing touch to this Mr. Hyde costume, I added a red vial necklace to the outfit to represent Mr. Hyde’s transformation serum that will change him back into Dr. Jekyll.
