What do Literary Characters Dress Up as for Halloween? You Decide!

There is a burning question in my mind — who would Sherlock Holmes dress up as for Halloween? And not only Sherlock Holmes! What about Katniss Everdeen, Inigo Montoya, Jay Gatsby, Count Dracula, Elphaba Thropp, Huckleberry Finn, and Harry Potter? I’ve decided I can’t decide. So I’m using my investigative skills and asking others.

Leave your answers (and jokes) in the comments below.
