HCSMU’s Favorite Halloween Costumes

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

October might be the month of scary movies and candy, but when it comes right down to it, we all know what it’s really about: the costumes. With less than 31 days left to plan and execute a phenomenal Halloween costume, allow the writers at Her Campus SMU to give you some much needed inspiration!

It’s Britney bitch! Get ready, because if “Toxic” comes on at whatever party you’re at, you’re pretty much expected to be on the dance floor.

Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a Halloween couples costume classic!
