Oooh There are so many choices...

Humans: (i'm assuming you're female)
Susan, Lucy-  British schoolgirls. Think brown tweed
White Witch- she's made Narnia always winter, but Never Christmas- Dressed in all white, carries a wand

Well, I found you a link... http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/lion/characters.html

there are lots of animals and half human/ half animals.  Could be fun.

Good luck!

i would be aslan.... he is the nicest lion ever.  (of course that's because he represents god, but whatever.  although now that i think about it, a lot of effort would have to go into hand making a lion costume.

if you are are tall, you could be a giantess (from 'the silver chair').  then go around trying to capture and eat whoever dresses up as jill and eustace.  it would be interesting to be a marsh wiggle, but again you'd have to be tall and lanky.

i think the best thing is not to be anyone from 'the lion, the witch, and the wardrobe.' that's the one everyone thinks of when they think narnia, but for goodness' sake, there are 6 other books!

Maybe you could go as a box of Turkish Delight and give out samples.

are you limited to the first book? If not, reepicheep would be my choice, or the marsh hermit, or one of the dwarfs, or prince caspian, or a talking badger, you could also be a tree nymph, one of the frozen statues, I love the turkish delight idea! so many possibilities! Or, you could be Aravis from the Horse and his Boy or Eustace as a dragon from the voyage of the dawn treader. have fun!

I'd be the white witch. She'd be fairly easy to do, and it would probably look awesome if you went about it the right way.

I had no idea those books represented god and all that up until a few years ago, I love them.. if I don't think they relate to the bible. Bleh.

Hey guys,
Sorry about all the old broken picture posts. I no longer have the files!

yeah. i too discovered the theological aspect late in life. struggled with it and now find it interesting if a bit offputting. the only ting about going as the white witch is that you might not be the ONLY white witch--- as long as you don't mind. Smiley

You could be Susan or Lucy in their grownup Queens of Narnia period. Susan was supposed to be really beautiful. Just look medieval with a bow and arrows. Or you could be one of the sea people(mermaid like) or a Dufflepud(very fun, one legged bouncing creatures) from Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Lastly, it would be very nice to be Ramandu's daughter. Ramandu was a star at the end of the world(Dawn Treader) His daughter married Prince Caspian at the end of his voyage and was the mother of Prince Rilian in Silver Chair.

You can just wear a tweed jacket and some old man clothes and go as... C. S. Lewis.  Make sure you tell people to call you Jack.

When in doubt, sauerkraut.
