So you like The Hunchback of Notre Dame enough to dress-up from it for Halloween? But you don’t want to be too on the nose, you want to be weird or clever or just not a “character” from the novel.

Well here is a list for you. A List of Vaguely Hunchback costume ideas that can be as big and crazy as you want or something more last minute.

Also these don’t have to be strictly for Halloween, any costume party would do.

There are ten costume ideas. The are in no order.


A Gargoyle

For whatever reason Gargoyles are NOT a popular choice for Halloween and I think that is a darn shame. Not ONLY are the monstrous but they ward off evil spirits. They are also iconic for Hunchback as they a prominent feature of Notre Dame and they are liken to Quasimodo.

A Medieval High Justice

Jehan Frollo, Sir Cedric Hardwicke 1939 Hunchback of Notre Dame

Basically a costume inspired by Frollo from either the 1939 or Disney version. You could also do the scepter Priest.

An Animal costume is classic costume choice. Plus Goats have scary connotations so it works on that level too. If You WANT to make it Book Djali make the horns gold and add some card that spell Phoebus in a pretty script. Disney version add a hoop earring.

Poet Juggler

This one is open to interpretation. Basically inspired by Gringoire. You could opt to make a prop chair to balance in your teeth too.

Printing Press

A weird out there pick but very creative.

Hennin Princess

Danielle Dumont as Fleur de Lys, 1956 Hunchback of Notre dame

Inspired by Fleur de Lys but you would be free to choose any color and decoration you want so long as you have the headgear. Though you are free to add Fleur de Lys in you want.

A Knight

Phoebus (Norman Kerry) 1923 Hunchback of Notre Dame picture image
Phoebus (Norman Kerry) 1923 Hunchback of Notre Dame

Inspired by Phoebus. More or less a basic staple idea UNLESS you go Burgundian in style. That would require research. Or you a do a Medieval take on a Roman look which is sort of what Disney did. Or you could just be a very shiny Knight as handsome as the sun.

An Alchemist

Frollo did practice Alchemy in the book. What would an Alchemist wear????? Up to you. Though some wear red jackets with the Flamel cross on the back.

A Stained Glass Window

Another Creative pick. This one could be very striking and crazy. You could take inspiration from the Notre Dame Rose Windows or some other motif. This is the one I’d most liked to see done.

A Bell

Garou as Quasimodo with a bell

And last but not least A Bell. You can’t have Hunchback without a Bell. You could go ONE STEP further and be Belle Bell. Do with that as you will.

Which of these ideas would you pick???? I’m Curious.

The trend of 100 layers of stuff maybe over but I lost my mind, so here is 100 layers of Esmeralda.

I went to  and picked the Part of your word Mad Lib and filled it will Hunchback related words and here it is. (The words are blue. so many words @@, some are more hunchback-ish than others)

Look at this Hunchback, isn`t it neat?
Wouldn`t you think my collection`s complete?
Wouldn`t you think I`m the Bell
The Bell who has everything?

Look at this Goat, treasures untold
How many wonders can one Paris hold?
Ringing around here, you`d think
Sure, she`s got everything

I`ve got Gypsies and Soldiers a-plenty
I`ve got who`s-its and what`s-its galore
You Beg thing-a-mabobs?
I`ve got 1482
But who cares? No Bald deal. I Hang more

I wanna be where the Vagabonds are
I wanna see, wanna see `em Swining
walkin` around on those
Whaddya call `em? Oh, feet

Lusting your fins, you don`t get too far
Legs are required for Dancing, dancin`
Strollin` along down the
What`s that word again? Pillory
Up where Shoes Die
Up where Shoes run
Up where Shoes stay all day in the sun
Wanderin` free, wish I could be
Part of that Devil

What would I give if I could live
Outta these Streets?
What would I pay to spend a day
Warm on the sand?

Betcha on Notre Dame they understand
Bet they don`t reprimand their Pamphlets
Bright young women, sick of Whipping
Ready to stand

And ready to know what the Water know
Ask `em Deformed questions and get some answers
What`s a Tambourine, and why does it
What`s the word? Attack

When`s it my turn?
Wouldn`t I Row?
Row to explore that Gibblet up above
Out of Foolish Amulet, wish Cathedral could be
Balance of that Poet

This fine picture was taken off my television with my old cell phone. It is Esmeralda that I made in LittleBigPlanet for a level I was creativing based on the Hunchback of Notre Dame. I made all the characters but I never made the level. This was before I started blogging so it was a while ago.

So for those who play LittleBigPlanet

Should I go back and make a Hunchback level for LittleBigPlanet.
