Now, add up which letter you had the most of to decide what costume is right for you this Halloween!

Mostly A’s – You probably want to look hot this Halloween. You’re going to attend all the hottest parties around campus, so you need to look your absolute best. I suggest channeling the inner Elle Woods in all of us and going as a Play Boy Bunny. A leotard in whichever color looks best on you off of Amazon, sheers, bunny ears, a tail, and heels. If you’re short on time, I suggest making your own ears and tail. For the ears, you can attach pipe cleaners to a headband and shape them like bunny ears. For the tail, buy a small amount of tulle to bunch up in the shape of a tail and sew it to the leotard with fish line.

If you really want to spice it up you could add a bow tie, gloves or even fur to your costume.

Mostly B’s – You want to look cute this Halloween! You don’t want to be the main focus of the party. Whether that’s because you’re already taken or you’re an introvert doesn’t matter. Either way you still want to dress up! I suggest being fruit for Halloween. The costume is simple and adorable! All you need as an oversized t-shirt, a sharpie, glue, a headband and construction paper. Pick whatever fruit you want to be and buy a t-shirt in that color. You could be a pineapple, strawberry, or even a pumpkin! Us your sharpie to draw on the seeds, lines, or faces for your chosen costume. Next, make sure to buy construction paper in the same color as the stem of your fruit. Cut it in the desired shape of your chosen fruit and glue it to the headband using hot glue. You’re done! This can be worn with a simple pair of converse for all night comfort!

Mostly C’s – You want to be silly this Halloween! You could care less what people think about your costume. I suggest being a loofah for Halloween. This costume is incredibly simple. Buy a large amount of tulle in any color. To go under the loofah costume you are going to want to wear spandex and a tank-top in the same color as your tulle (if you want it to be less revealing, you could always wear colorful tights instead of spandex).To make the loofah, you’re going to need about $20 of tulle. Divide the tulle into 8 equal sections. Attach 4 of the sections of tulle to a headband that goes around your chest and the other 4 to a headband for around your waist. You can also use string to make a “halter” attached to your loofah. When you put the costume on the day of, make sure to fluff it up as much as possible!
