Top 10 Most Basic Halloween Costumes

Every year USC whips out the all famous “Halloweek”. Here are 10 of the most basic costumes for all you bad witches. Tried and true, you can’t go wrong.

1. Bunny

This costume takes the prize for most basic one of all. All you need is $5 bunny ears and some lingerie.

2. Cop

Stop in the name of basic! All you need is short shorts, half a shirt and some handcuffs.

3. Shacker 

It’s easy. It’s classic. It’s—let’s be honest—hilarious. The best part about it is you don’t have to ask for a shirt the next morning when your night got a little ~spooky~.

4. Cat

Grab some eyeliner, draw on some whiskers and get some kitty ears. This may be the easiest (and cutest) costume for night four of Halloweek, when you can’t figure out what to wear.

5. Alien

Finally a costume with every srat girl’s favorite thing…GLITTER! Grab anything sparkly, anything shiny or anything green to make a costume that is out of this world!

6. Angel/Devil

A costume that shows a little bit of every girl. Grab your bestie and decide who’s who (we all secretly want to be the devil), or split it right down the middle and dress as a little bit of both.

7. Victoria’s Secret Angel

Comfort and style all in one! Grab some cute lingerie, a silky robe and the biggest wings you can find!

8. Zombie

Put those XL t-shirts to use and rip them up. Grab some blood (or red paint) toss it on, and get ready to die… literally.

9. Football Player

If you’re really feeling lazy, this costume’s for you. All you have to do is toss on a jersey like it’s game day and roll.

10. Boxer

Time to get feisty with this costume. Grab your boxing gloves, get into character and “accidentally” punch that frat boy who left you on read last week.

Did your go-to basic costume make the list? Let us know in the comments below.
