Halloween is one of the greatest events of the year when it comes to college parties.
A crazy Halloween can turn any college into a top party school. Probably one of the best and biggest Halloween parties out there
happens at UC Santa Barbara, where people fill the streets of this college town located on the beach. Other colleges known for having insane Halloween parties include: Ohio University and East Carolina University.
The one requirement of a Halloween party is that you must dress up. Now many of you may have been planning your costume for months, which is good knowing you'll be prepared for one of the biggest events of the year. Some of you though, either have been slacking off or are waiting for the last second to throw your costumes together.
Perhaps some of these Halloween Costume Ideas can get your creativity flowing, so you can think of your own original idea. Most of these costumes can be thrown together pretty quickly and will fit any budget.
- Average Joe
Simple. Wear an "Average Joe's" T-Shirt. Pretty easy costume and fairly cheap, especially if you went the route I did and make your own (A process that involves a plain yellow shirt, red spray paint and making an "Average Joe's" template).
As an added bonus, you can carry around your own dodge ball and throw it at party goers who annoy/piss you off.
Halloween classic that is easy to throw together. Also good for those "Pimps n Hoes" parties.
- Beer Man
Guaranteed life of the party. Everybody loves the man with all the beer, especially at festivities such as this.
- Hugh Hefner
Props include a Corn Cob pipe, robe and a newspaper under your arm. Wearing a robe can make your night very comfortable, plus all those girls dressed as Playboy Bunnies will flock to you all night long.
You are going to being drinking anyway, so why not put a 40oz in a paper bag and call it good?
Frat classic made popular by John Belushi.
- Bible Salesman
Of course, the best costumes are those that are unique, these are just ideas. You should really try coming up with your own idea. I don't want to see a bunch of Average Joe's walking around on Halloween ;)
