October 2014: Halloween Edition

Ask Eight Cousins . . .

Forget dressing up, which literary character would you like to be for a day?


Carol: Fancy Nancy, for my inner fancy.
   
Cathy S: Becky Randle from Paul Rudnick's Gorgeous, because she gets a personal designer (who also happens to be a sort of angel) who provides her with magical clothes that transform her whole persona!
   
Cathy v: Calixta Burr, the brave, beautiful pirate from The Glass Sentence. Some things I need to find for the costume: Tall boots, a billowing charcoal gray silk gown, a black plumed hat, a leather belt with holster and silver revolver, long dark hair and black eyes that glitter.
   

Mary Fran: Madeline, because I'd love to be a kid again and get to live in Paris.
   

Tasha: Toad.
   

Lysbeth: Alex Woods, from The Universe versus Alex Woods, by Gavin Extence. Despite suffering from a brain injury from a falling meteorite, Alex has an unbounded curiosity about everything, he is resourceful and caring and kind, he sees the world in an unusual way (although this may be due to the meteorite), and he reads all of Kurt Vonnegut's novels over the course of a year. Plus he gets to keep the meteorite.
   

Lindsay: Pippi Longstocking.
   

Sara: Seraphina, because she's part academic musician and part dragon.
   

Tildy: President Snow for a day because I'd like to see what it's like to be primarily evil (even if no one is completely evil) and to have that kind of power and control.
   

Rebecca: Matilda, because of her ability to move things with the power of her mind and the strength and ability she demonstrates.
   

Julien: Butler, because he always carries a frying pan.
   

Joanne: Charlotte from Charlotte's Web. Pippi was already taken.
