Halloween costume recommendations

Spooky Season is finally here!

We all know the most difficult part of Halloween is choosing which costume to wear. There are duo, solo, and group costumes, or you could follow a theme, choose a DIY costume…there are so many choices! But don’t worry. I’m here to help. Keep reading for some tips on how to make your costume memorable, fun and easy!

Group costumes:
Group costumes can be a great experience to do with your friends. In 7th grade, I did a Care Bear group costume with some friends that ended up being a really cute idea and lots of fun.

And if you like the idea of bringing back childhood memories, Sesame Street or a Muppets group costume will definitely get people’s attention. Some other ideas like characters from Inside Out, Winnie the Pooh, Disney Princesses or any Disney characters would be a magical group costume.

I know it can be really hard to be inclusive, especially if not everyone wants someone in their group. However, it’s important to remember that the smallest act of kindness can really make a big difference. If you see someone by themselves, don’t hesitate to reach out to them.

Duo costumes:
For some fantasy themed duo costumes, try Captain Hook and Tinker Bell, two pirates, or two fairies. For a blond/brunette duo, Aurora and Maleficent or Barbie and Raquel would be perfect.

I have a passion for dance, which gave me some inspiration for this next idea: A black swan/white swan duo from Swan Lake is a great option for dancers and non-dancers alike.

Solo costumes:
With solo costumes, you can get really creative if you find the right thing! If you’re looking for something shiny and sparkly, a pink cowgirl, a silver alien, Elle from Legally Blond or a construction worker are some entertaining options.

For something a little more neutral, a witch, angel, or a race car driver are still interesting costumes.

DIY costumes:
You don’t have to buy new costumes every year. If you want to get creative, don’t be afraid to make something by yourself like an accessory. Or go ahead and look to see if you have anything interesting from your closet instead of buying something new.

While you’re at it, check and see if you have any old costumes to donate to Alex Muñoz ’25 and Alex Coto ‘27’s costume drive for the Lotus House!

Lately, I noticed the temperature has been feeling a little cooler, which reminds me–Christmas is just around the corner. Stay tuned for my recommendations on holiday music!
