Happy Halloween

Many people believe that Halloween is just a kid’s holiday and that adults should not be dressing up.  But why should only kids have the fun?  And where do college kids fit in all of this?  The answer is simple: college kids have the best of both worlds.  They are adults and should be treated as such but they are also kids who are in college which is supposed to be the best years of their lives.  So college kids should feel free to let loose and enjoy Halloween to the fullest.  And the following is the ten best Halloween costumes for college students.

Angels & Demons
Angels & Demons

Angels & Demons

Angels and Demons are popular themes for college costume parties in general and is a great costume for Halloween. The costumes can be as risque as the person wearing wants it to be. The costumes lend themselves to creativity and there is now way in telling who the angel is and who the demon is!

Mario & Luigi

Mario & Luigi

Mario and Luigi are the famed brothers from the Super Nintendo game Mario Brothers.  Their likeness is well known to children around the world and has been known for decades.  So what could make a better costume that to dress as the famed brothers that every college student knows?   As an added bonus, if there are more than two people in the group, you could also dress up as the Princess, Bowser and Donkey Kong.

Will Ferrell Characters Including The Spartan Cheerleader

Any Will Ferrell character

Will Ferrell’s humor is an acquired taste. But many college students believe that Mr. Ferrell is a comedic genius. So what could be a better Halloween costume than dressing up as one of your favorite Will Ferrell’s characters? Think about the possibilities; an Elf, Frank the Tank, Ron Burgundy or a Spartan Cheerleader. Just be sure not to go streaking.

Adam & Eve

Adam & Eve

For the couples out there a great Halloween costume can be to dress up as the original couple Adam and Eve.  And yes, you can design the costume to be more than just a few leaves, but it can be a sexy and fun costume. 

The School Mascot

The College Mascot

If you are going to a party at your college, what could be a better costume than dressing up as you school mascot.  Now depending on the school, this could be a great costume or be very normal, but it would be considered creative either way.  Of course, if you go to the Rhode Island School of Design, your mascot is Scrotie, the man sized penis, so you better be careful.

Star Wars Costumes

Star Wars Characters

Star Wars and its numerous characters are universally known and can make great college Halloween costumes.  Some people could dress up as their favorite Jedi Knight, a Storm Trooper or even Princess Leia with or without her golden slave bikini.

The Blues Brothers
The Blues Brothers

The Blues Brothers

Jake and Elwood Blues are notorious figures in movie history and can be the makings of a great college Halloween costume.  Think about it, cheap suits, sunglasses and perhaps a Midwest accent.  And if you can pull of the dance you are sure to be a hit at any party.

Hugh Hefner And The Playboy Bunnies

Hugh Hefner and the Playboy Bunnies

Are you a man with more than one date option on Halloween?  Or perhaps there is just a group of friends that want to have a good time on Halloween.  Then a great group costume is to dress up as Hugh Hefner and the Playboy Bunnies.  The man only needs a robe and a pipe and the ladies can dress up as bunnies or like the girls next door.  Either way, it is a creative costume that will be the talk of the party.

The Six Pack
The Six Pack

The Six Pack

Do you have five other people trying to figure out what to be for Halloween?  Then the six of you can dress up as your favorite six pack of beer.  All you need are some garbage bags, a large cardboard box and a little imagination to have a memorable and fun costume.  You can even walk down the street with the bottles in their slots to garner attention.

Doctor And Nurse
Doctor And Nurse

Doctor and Nurse

Yes the doctor and nurse costume has been done time and time again, and the best part about this classic costume is that it never gets old.  Both costumes leave enough imagination to make it as sexy as anybody would want it to be and it is always a favored costume of coeds of both sexes.

 

Naughty Nuns
Naughty Nuns

Naughty Nuns and Preachers

From a suggestion in the comments I thought what a great idea. Naughty nuns or preachers. Yes, its total Blasphemy, but hey its Halloween. And the whole point is to dress up as someone we are not so why not go all the way.  And if we can't have a little fun, what is the point of it all?   So go ahead, dress up as your favorite religious leader.

These costumes are all pretty damned cliched. They've been around for decades. Dressing up in one of them is like going "I'm an adult, my imagination is now dead!"

Sometimes the basic, simple costume can get all the attention, too. It's hard to be unique (and yes, adults - young and old - like Halloween) and sometimes just taking a look at normal, everyday objects - putting a spin on them, makes you the life of the party.

bgpappa 6 years ago from Sacramento, California Author

Very good points Ellen

There's a few of those I expected to see on this list, but a few like Adam and Eve, and the Six Pack both surprised me. I sent the link to my girlfriend to see what she thinks about some of these.


bgpappa profile image

bgpappa 6 years ago from Sacramento, California Author

Ya, there are some classics on every list, and then I tried to find ones that were unique (although I had seen them in person)

Thanks for reading.

I have to disagree with those who say things like "adults who dress up for halloween are losers" etc etc, because I believe the opposite. The ones who don't dress up, never learned how to enjoy life to it's fullest. I feel sorry for them. Thank you for the ideas!

bgpappa 6 years ago from Sacramento, California Author

Ali, agreed.

I don't understand these commenters wondering what adults dress up for Halloween? Who doesn't is my question to them? Great hub. Voted up.

bgpappa 5 years ago from Sacramento, California Author

Kitty,

I agree, just because you are an adult does not mean that you can't be fun. Thanks for reading.


TheChet 5 years ago

I think everyone should dress up for Halloween. It should be a law. Especially if you're in college, which is what this hub is about. You can see 2011 costumes geared towards college kids at collegehalloweencostume.com - Or not, your choice!

Even though spam, I will allow the link because it may give someone some helpful information.

Thanks for spamming
