What are the best literary Halloween costumes? I’m attending a Halloween party and I’d like to win the prize. I am a female and not tall. Should I dress up as Dorothy Parker, Virginia Woolf (for which I will have pockets full of stones), or Allen Ginsberg?
Virginia Woolf’s a great idea—but you’ll want to invest in some hollow rocks, the kind they used to sell for hiding housekeys in. Or maybe ball up some newspaper?
This Halloween, I was thinking of dressing up as Tom Wolfe, but then I looked in my closet and realized I already own a loden-green moleskin blazer, khakis, and a pair of flip-flops—so I might as well just walk around telling everyone I’m the New Tom Wolfe. Problem solved.
