STORY BY GIULIANA LAMANTIA
With Halloween around the corner, everyone is trying to think of the best costume ideas. However, with packed schedules and only $20 in our pockets, this task is easier said than done. So with the help of Google and some “Pinspiration,” here are some quick, simple ideas that can be done with pieces found in your dorm, Walgreens or thrift stores in a pinch. Let’s pop some tags.
Toga/Greek God: Because everyone has sheets.
Cowgirl/boy: Flannel, boots, bandana and a hat. If you own at least two of these four items you can get away with it.
Risky Business: Oversized dress shirt and tube socks. Plus, no pants.
Hawaiian Tourist: I’m just assuming most people already have Hawaiian shirts and lei. If not, they’re always in stock at Goodwill.
Scandalous schoolgirl: Knee-high socks, clogs, short skirt, collared shirt. Add in a tie for good measure.
Walk of shame: Take raunchy to the next level with leggings, an oversized dress shirt and sky-high teased sex hair. (Not to be confused with “Risky Business”).
Peacock: Get creative with this gem by gluing blue feathers to an old tank top. Add leggings and awesome shoes to complete the look.
Sexy sheet ghost: The classic sheet ghost look, just with a bra and underwear over it.
Bag of jellybeans: Cut holes in a clear trash bag for arms and legs. Fill with blown up balloons and secure around neck with ribbon.
Tarzan and Jane: You don’t have to wear much…
Dora and Diego: T-shirt, shorts, sneakers and your trusty back pack and map. Or just be adorable.
Katniss and Peeta: This is simple because you most likely already have clothing to fit these characters. Edgy jackets, skinny jeans and combat boots. Or to fluff it up a bit, Peeta can go the bread boy route and wear an apron. Props to those who go all-out with wet suits and the District 12 emblem.
Loofah and hobo: Maybe the loofah idea is a little old now, but you have to admit this couple idea is stellar.
There is a platinum blond wig at Walgreens that can be…
…Dyed blue for Katy Perry: Cover a skimpy outfit in colorful candy wrappers to portray her ever-famous “California Gurls” look
…Teased for Kesha: Wear heavy metallic eye makeup and look trashy.
…As is for Lady Gaga: Caution tape. Or pretty much anything bizarre.
Derek Zoolander: Guys, get your blue steel on with spiky hair, the bandana and sleek clothing.
Robot box: a semi cooler rendition of the infamous box costume. Just add some aluminum foil.
