The Halloween Dance is this upcoming Thursday October 23rd at 9pm! I hope you’re all getting your tickets and preparing your costumes. In case you’re at a total loss of what to be, there’s obviously the typical cat, cowgirl, etc , but creativity is key here if you’re trying to win the costume contest! (although those are all things I’ve been in the past so no judgment here!) Since none of us are made of money (and for some reason Halloween costumes are always so much money!!!?!): I found some easy DYI costumes that are totally fun:
Disney Princesses:
Obviously this one is a classic but it’s great because you have so many options-either choose your favorite, or one with the same color hair as you and your golden!
You can improvise the outfit too; you can do anything from wearing  a tutu in the color of her ‘main’ dress, wear an improvised dress that looks similar (i.e. blue shirt and yellow skirt for Snow White), or put together one of her ‘casual’ outfits (Belle in her white button down with a blue shirt over it and some books).


Error 404:
This is the error for things not found on the Internet-just decorate a plain white shirt to say “Error 404: Costume not found”. Too easy!

Dunkin  Donuts and Hawaiian Punch:  I recently saw this one online and love it!
For the Dunkin Donuts you wear a basketball ball jersey & get one of those cheap blow up donut tubes (hello 5 Below)-get it? Dunking Donuts!
The Hawaiian Punch: you wear Hawaiian inspired clothing- think leis, flowery shirt, flip flops, etc and boxing gloves


Kids in Pajamas:

Ceiling Fan:
This is another pun…Write “GO CEILING” on a tshirt, grab a pom-pom and start cheering! WOO GO TEAM


Story book Characters-simplified:
Think Little Red Riding Hood (red hooded sweatshirt, basket of baked goods), Goldilocks (for you blondes. You can also model of off actors in Once Upon a Time-they already give you simpler versions of the character’s clothing choices!

Stick Figure: wear one solid color long sleeve shirt and pants. Use duct tape to make the stick figure outline over your clothes and a paper plate for the face!


Identity Theft:
Find a bunch of “Hello My Name is” nametags, fill them out with all different names and stick them all over you!

Regina George’s Mom:
From Mean Girls, duh. This one is my fav because you get to wear sweatpants: super easy all pink sweat suit


Robber: find a black and white horizontal striped shirt and pair it with black pants. Add a black winter hat and gloves-carry a bag of money or stick money in your pockets as an extra prop.

Or you could always be a cat 🙂

Bonus: you could also use your costume for Halloween in the Halls!

Happy (almost) Halloween 🙂

About jerseystrongrach

Hey guys! My name is Rachel and I'm a Junior at Misericordia as an undergraduate psychology major in the pre-DPT program. Although I'm a Jersey girl at heart (can't you tell!?), Misericordia has become my home away from home and I absolutely love it here. My favorite part about MU is that it's so easy to get involved- I'm super excited because this summer I'll be an orientation leader! When I'm not running from class to class or stuck studying in the library (ugh) you can probably find me cooking or out for a run. And even though I've learned to love PA, I'm a diehard NY Giants, Rangers and Mets fan!
