Best Halloween Costumes 2014!

Another successful Halloween has come and gone this 2014 season, but I gotta tell ya, this was the most creative and craziest Halloween I have seen in my 20 years. From the insane facial makeup to the amazingly clever costume ideas, social media and the streets of Connecticut were Halloween-crazy this past weekend. Her Campus Sacred Heart requested that Sacred Heart students submit their costume photos with the chance to win best halloween costume recognition. We received a TON of submissions, all fantastic. So to make it fair we broke down the submissions into five categories and chose no more than five top pics for each! Look below to find out who are the Her Campus winners!

Winners for Best Group Costume:

Nick Fairley, Chase Godfrey, Alex Dodge, Mitch Hall, and Owen Thompson of the Sacred Heart Men’s Lacrosse team are retro basketball players! Looking good boys ;)

PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER! It’s the Incredibles! Posed from left to right is Mike Mazzilli, Steven Masetti, and Brian Gibson.

Dun dun, dun dun, dun dun dun…! Look out for Jaws! These girls dressed up as shark week!

These girls dressed up as Essie nail polish bottles! So creative. 


Winners for Best Duo:

Curious George and The Man in the Yellow Hat! Killing it.

Wanna play a board game with these two beauties?? Diana Hoffman is dressed as Candyland and Liz Vigilante is Monopoly!

Phil and Lil <3 the perfect twins from the the Rugrats. Tell me this doesn’t bring back childhood mems!

Danielle D’Urso and Dana Gilberton dressed up as Dr. Suess’s “Thing 1” and “Thing 2.” So cute, ladies! 


OOMPA LOOMPAS! These two girls rocked this costume.

Winners for Best Couple:

Look who left the looney bin to give a rare guest appearance this Halloween: Shia Lebouf and Amanda Bynes. Nicolette Sands and her boyfriend Ryan Surlis definitely scored some major creativity points here.


Because it’s The Cup. Ally O’Connor and her boyfriend Jake Lynes stole the hearts of all social media fans with this adorable rendition of a professional hockey player holding the Stanley Cup!

Oh my god… It’s Kim K and Kayne with baby North! Her Campus writer Morgan Debelle Duplan and her boyfriend Anthony Altomaro were spot on for this look-a-like costume idea.


A pirate and his “booty!” Such a cute couple costume.

Winners for Best Solo:

Another fantastic throwback to the younger days with this costume depicting everyone’s favorite snotty rugrat, Chuckie!

Her anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns hon! Gab (Sparkle) Rosen definitely out did every single costume at this school with her perfect and hilarious Nicki Minaj Anaconda bodysuit. Absolutely amazing.

She’s a barbie girl in a barbie world, wrapped in plastic, its fantastic! Although you can’t touch this doll, we are truly blown away by senior Dayna Interlandi’s Barbie doll costume. She went above and beyond with every detail and looks unreal. You go girl!

Winners for Best Makeup:

Why so serious? Let’s put a smile on that face. Her Campus’ own editor, Syndey Lima, is eerily beautiful with her makeup portraying an ominous and distorted Joker.

It seems as though the half-face skeleton was the trend this year for Halloween but these ladies take all the candy with their impeccably done makeup while still managing to look sexy. Don’t the teeth and bones almost look real!

Seriously though.. can someone teach me how to be this artistic?? Maddie Losure of the Sacred Heart Women’s Volleyball team looks phenomenal with her walking dead makeup and ensemble. Perfection from the bottom to the top.


WELL DONE to all who won Best Halloween Costume for 2014!!! And thank you to all those who submitted your photos! Can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with next year :)
