Halloween Costume Inspiration

October 12, 2016

October is here, which means two things:

  1. Colder weather is approaching.
  2. Halloween.

Every year Halloween seems to creep up – there are parties to go to and I have no idea what to wear. Luckily, I may or may not have a costume bin in my basement filled with previous costumes from the college-themed party days.

My train of thought usually goes as follows: Should we wear a couples’ costume? Maybe I can just pull something out of the bin. What can I make? What’s not boring? I could be Buddy the elf. Maybe I’ll just skip Halloween all together.

In order to avoid the woes of Halloween, below are costume ideas from years past, in hopes that 2016 is your best Halloween yet.

Note: I’m sorry to my friends who may be embarrassed by the photos below.
