Costume Parties that Should Be Happening

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Case chapter.

One of the great things about Halloween is watching everyone’s creativity go off the roof. From DIY homemade three blind mice costumes to expensive superhero ones, there’s no denying that observing everyone’s efforts to dress up may be one of the best things you see during the year.

So the question is, why stop there? In honour of starting a new trend to have a costume themed party every month of the year, here are 12 theme parties that we should definitely be having for the next twelve months!

1.90s Cartoon Characters

Extra points if you can squeeze your head into the shape of Arnold’s football head.

2. Dress like Something that Begins With the Letter of Your Name

Mine would be “N,” so good examples of costumes would be a nerd, neopet, or ninja. If your name was Luke, maybe a leopard, lamp, or landlord would all be great options.

3. What You’re Wearing in Your Profile Picture

This can tell a lot about a person.


4. Disney Themed

Self explanatory


5. No Makeup on Girls, Makeup on Guys

Guys can put makeup on by themselves, or with the help of a female friend. This would be hilarious and a great laugh for everyone.


6. Your Spirit Animal

Dressing up as animals is always fun. Catch: you cannot be a human being.


7. Historic Person

A president, a celebrity, or a saint, he or she just has to be a real person.


8. Hippies vs. Hipsters

Peace out or geek out.


9. Classy vs. Trashy

Pearls or fishnets? You decide.


10. Call Me Maybe Party

This one’s super easy. All you need is a white t-shirt and then write your number on it. See how many calls/texts you get at the end of the night!


11. An Actual Pajama Party

RULE: Where you have to wear what you would actually wear to bed. If you sleep naked… well rules are rules.

12. Britney Throughout the Years

Saved the best for last. There is a plethora of options that you can choose from! The Toxic flight attendant, Hit Me Baby One More Time school girl, Circus ringleader, Slave 4 U snake, the list goes on and on.

Hope to see all these come true. Here we go Halloween 2.0!!!
