Question of the Week

Halloween Edition

You've been invited to a costume party and the theme is classic literature characters. Who would you go as?  (submitted by Billy)

My Answer:

Even though I am not a villain by any means, I would go as my favorite villain:  Mrs. Danvers from Rebecca. 

I would need to research her attire so I would look authentic.  :)

  1. Love Mrs. Danvers!!

    I actually haven't dressed up or gone to a Halloween party for years. :)

    Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping, everyone.

  3. Mrs. Danvers is an excellent choice! She's so creepy! I considered a Rebecca costume as well. I think the costume that Mrs. Danvers tricks the 2nd Mrs. de Winters into wearing would be great!

  4. I'll never forget the impression Mrs. Danvers made on me the first time I saw the movie! Even though I had already read the book, and was already creeped out by her, the movie version (the original movie) made her even MORE frightening to me! That's because I'm a very visual person. Besides, the actress that portrayed this character was just SUPERB. She made Mrs. Danvers SO horribly real!

    You know, I can't imagine sweet, kind Elizabeth as this cruel, ruthless character, but it's a great choice for a Halloween costume, nevertheless! You would just have to practice that famous sneer, and that creepy voice, though. Lol.

    Hope you have a TERRIFIC weekend, Happy Hopping, and Happy Halloween!

    Thanks for dropping by and commenting on my own BBH post!! :)

    1. Awwww...so glad you know I am not like her in "real" life. :)

      She is the best, though, and I loved the book.

      Thanks for your wonderful comments and for stopping, Maria.

  5. Oh what a great choice Elizabeth!! She definitely is the coldest villain ever. Just dress in black and have your hair really flat. And just stare at everyone. Oh and if any of the guests pick something up, grab it from them and tell them to leave it alone, it's not theirs....

  6. Great character!! I agree with Mareli--that would be too funny at a party. Rebecca is on my November Reading list.

  7. I read Rebecca a long time ago, and think I need to read it again as I can't remember Mrs. Danvers huh. I'm sure it would be an awesome costume anyway. Happy Halloween!
