How to Dress as 13 Famous (But Dead) Writers This Halloween


Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī (or simply Rumi to lazy laymen) was a Muslim poet, jurist, theologian, and Sufi mystic whose major work, the Maṭnawīye Ma’nawī, is a six-volume poem regarded by some Sufis as the Persian-language equivalent of the Qur’an. He was born in 1207 C.E. in what is now Tajikistan and perished in present-day Turkey in 1273 C.E. To pull off Rumi’s Persian aesthetic of the High Middle Ages, search for libas (puffy pants also known as harem pants or MC Hammer pants); a brightly colored tunic with sash; color-coordinated lace-up ankle boots; a fur-lined, floor-length shawl or cape; and a traditional headdress, which you can make at home using an overturned wooden basket wrapped in a silk scarf at its mouth.
