Some of the most entertaining Halloween costumes come from pop culture, especially movies. As a movie buff, you love dressing up as your favorite cinematic characters; however, your mental list goes M.I.A. when October finally rolls around. Well look no further, collegiettes: our list of movie-inspired Halloween ensembles will be sure to kick start your costume brainstorm.
Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games
Pay homage to one of the biggest films of the year by dressing up as our favorite tribute. Don’t worry collegiettes, you don’t need Cinna’s amazing pyrotechnics to have a stellar Katniss outfit (though that would be pretty sick). For this Halloween costume, make sure your outfit is filled with woodsy hues—we’re talking brown corduroys with an army green jacket. Since you’re wearing your everyday clothes, differentiate yourself with a bow and arrow or a sign that says “District 12.” Last but not least, don’t forget to braid your hair—a simple braid will do. Since Katniss is pretty low maintenance, natural-looking makeup will be fine. Trust us, the odds will be ever in your favor.
Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Sometimes, you just want to keep it classy on Halloween. When in doubt, you can always turn to Audrey. Simply pairing a black maxi dress with a tiara and loads of costume jewelry will do the trick. This look’s beauty front is all about channeling the sixties: tie your hair in a top knot and swipe on loads of mascara. Your costume may not be the sexiest, but everyone will admire your tasteful and glamorous ensemble.
The ladies from Bridesmaids
Over a year later and we’re still laughing. Grab some of your girlfriends and dress up as the hilarious gang from Bridesmaids. One of you can be Lily by sporting a wedding veil and white mini. The rest of you will have to agree on one type of dress, as the characters had to do in the film. Luckily, you don’t have to break bank with a couture dress—a bright pink mini will do the trick. To differentiate each character, carry some props! Annie replicas can accessorize with a whisk while Megan fans can rock a newsboy hat and carry a stuffed animal puppy. Make the most out of this hilarious costume with the quintessential bridesmaid updo. We’re talking top knots and ringlets here. Before you go out, make sure to snap a picture of the six of you mimicking the film’s poster. It’ll get a ton of likes on Facebook and Instagram.
