What an author does in his or her spare time might be completely opposite to how you imagine them to be. And Flavorwire proves just this by taking us on a 20-picture journey into the world of authors and their costume habits! This one is perfect for Halloween time and documents authors Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde and even F. Scott Fitzgerald in incredible transformations through costume. Not all these costumed authors are dressing up for Halloween, though.

Click through the collection of images to see Susan Sontag at the computer in a bear suit, Virginia Woolf in a somewhat racist outfit for the great Abyssinian hoax on the Dreadnought, and Truman Capote as a Grecian-style Santa
