Years ago, all your Halloween stress was centered around where you should go trick-or-treating. Now, you’re even more obsessed with having a Halloween costume that is easy, creative, and will definitely get that cutie’s attention. While having a solo costume is a great way to express yourself, it’s also fun to dress up with your closest friends. However, it’s tough to agree on just one idea. Collegiettes, take a look at our absolute favorite group costume ideas for this Halloween.
The cast of Awkward
Every so often -- scratch that, everyday – you’re seriously convinced that your life is an episode of MTV’s hottest show, Awkward. Since you’re basically Jenna Hamilton already, why not sport her terrible arm cast on Halloween? Don’t worry, your friends can join in on the fun! Your sassy BFF would be the perfect Sadie Saxton – all she needs is a cheerleader’s uniform. With a flannel shirt and backwards cap, your boyfriend can dress up as Matty McKibben. Or, if you’re more Team Jake, have him don a varsity jacket instead. Most of your costume pieces can be found in your and your friends’ closets, so why would anyone veto this idea?
Team USA’s Fab Five
At the London Games, all eyes were on Team USA’s beyond epic gymnastics team. Well, that and Ryan Lochte’s rocking bod. If you were jealous of the “Fab Five’s” amazing skills, take this holiday to pretend to be them! This ensemble is as easy as sporting black leggings and matching hoodies from American Apparel. To distinguish yourself from each other by wearing a tag that says your fab five member’s last name. Topical and easy – how could you not love it?
Members of an aerobics video
Whenever you have your daily dose of “Insanity,” you can’t help but hate the ensemble cast. As you’re sweating and casually suffering from exhaustion, the actors on the T.V. are filled with so much energy. Can we say jealous? With some fitness clothes, you and your friends can emulate your favorite workout video’s crew. Give this idea a comedic twist by rocking neon pieces. Richard Simmons would be so proud.
The Spice Girls
Don’t be fooled, collegiettes: the Spice Girls are back and better than ever. Not only is there going to be a Spice Girls musical in London, but also their performance at the Olympics’ closing ceremony was to die for. In the event you’ve been knocked unconscious sometime during the past fifteen years, allow me to break down each ensemble for you. If Baby Spice was always your favorite, your ensemble consists of a button-down top, miniskirt, and some high socks. Oh, and don’t forget to tie your hair in high pigtails! Pay homage to Posh Spice with a LBD (tell me you remember “The Little Gucci” dress scene from their movie, Spice World), straightened hair, and some major heels. Keep it casual as Sporty Spice with your gym attire. If you’re unable to obtain a Scary Spice wig, overdose in leopard print! Since Ginger Spice is all about representing her UK roots, sport some British pieces- which can be found at your local thrift store- with tall black boots. If you’re feeling super creative, become a redhead for the night with some temporary dye. For a finishing touch, you and your friends should carry around faux microphones.
