Halloween Costume Ideas for a College Halloweekend

This is going to be my first year celebrating Halloween in a non-college environment in six years and I’m actually devastated.

Halloween in college is the BEST because you get to wear multiple costumes, and it lasts all weekend…sometimes even two weekends. I told my boyfriend I didn’t know what to be “for the rest of the nights” and he gave me quite the shock when he said it’s only one night. WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT’S ONLY ONE NIGHT?! One thing we all struggle with is coming up with amazing Halloween costume ideas.

Halloween in college is exta fun because you really get to let your personality show through your costume. Whether you want to be super sexy, cute or funny the Halloween costume ideas are endless.

Halloween is right around the corner, so if you haven’t gotten planning it’s best to start now! That way you’re not trying to piece together a costume at the very last minute.
I’ve listed some fun ideas for Halloween costumes to wear at a college party.

Let’s get spooky BITCHEZ:
