5 Costumes you saw on Saturday

5 Costumes you saw on Saturday

By: Nicole Smith

1.The Do-it-Yourself costume



You are probably the most creative person in your friend group. Most likely, you spent the past couple of months assembling your costume, but it was completely worth it. Your costume was the most unique one at the party and everybody was jealous. On top of that, you probably spent way less money than everybody else.


2. The ‘Sexy’ anything costume

If this describes your costume, then you probably have a unique talent for making anything look sexy. You’ve tried everything: the sexy cop, the sexy bunny, the sexy teacher, maybe even the sexy grandma. In the words of Mean Girls, this is your one night to “dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.” Be proud of your confidence.


3. The last minute costume

One hour before game time, you grabbed an old white T-shirt, drew some fake abs on with a sharpie and called yourself Channing Tatum. I understand that you were trying to be economical, but really? No one is buying it.


4. The couple’s (or group) costume



Depending on the kind of costume, this one takes a lot of thought and coordination. Someone has to take the responsibility of organizing the group, which takes a drill Sergeant. If this was you, congratulations, you are a true leader. Although, it must have been hard to explain your costume to your friends when you were 6 shots of Tequila in and couldn’t find a single person from your group.


5. The Store Bought

Let me guess, you were sitting around with your friends a few days before Halloween, and they were all talking about what they were planning on dressing up as. Your first reactions was ‘oh shit! It’s Halloween already?” So, you drove to CVS and picked up a princess costume or maybe some cat ears. You didn’t have the worst costume at the party, but try to be a little bit more creative next year.
