What do librarians wear?

I passed my comps! This means I am just that much closer to being a real librarian, and in honor of Halloween, I think we should take a look at some librarian Halloween costumes. Of course, the only reason I have gone through the past two years of graduate school is to be objectified by drunken sorority girls during the month of October. This is what they will be wearing on Campus Corner this year…

Evidently, spectacles=information professional...

This “librarian” may have an exposed midriff, but at least she thought to put on pantyhose, which completes the ensemble and adds a ladylike touch. My reference question to her would be “How do I get abs like yours?”

Prepare yourselves, guys. The next librarian Halloween costume is pretty astounding.

Guess what her favorite book is!

Here’s an easy way to provide readers’ advisory services… write the recommended titles on your inappropriately short skirt! What a way to boost circulation! Unfortunately, the pearl necklace isn’t included with this costume. Figures, since it’s the only component of the whole ensemble which exudes any sort of class.

This costume is the most to my liking.

Modesty coupled with dry humor. A rare combination on Halloween on a college town!

Maybe I’ll wear this to work on Friday. I’ll put my pearl necklace with it though, so everyone will be able to discern what I am dressed up as!

    Congratulations on passing comps! Now you really *are* entitled to wear the teeshirt. (Too bad you couldn’t find one that says “I Survived Comps 2008”)
