In any other teenage fashion, someone is throwing a last minute Halloween party. Problem is, you are stuck on what to wear. Check out these quick Halloween costumes to not be a basic witch.

  1. You love dressing up as your favorite TV show characters
    1. “Riverdale” has become the teen drama that everyone is binge watching, with some of the most dynamic characters known to man. Whether you are feeling like a flannel wearing, sad boy like Jughead or a sophisticated princess like Veronica, this is the type of costume for you.
    2. Everybody loves the classic show “The Office”. No matter who you embody, anyone can throw on some business attire like the characters. Even if it does include putting staplers in Jello.
  2. Superheroes have always been a huge part of your life
    1. If you want to be a little more subtle, maybe go as a superhero in disguise. That way you can look fly in casual/business attire and reveal the true identity underneath with a superhero t-shirt.
    2. Or, you can always go for it and wear the superhero costume! There are so many superhero films that have been released in the last year, everybody will know who you are.
  3. You need an excuse to wear sports attire
    1. An easy costume is always wearing your perspective sports uniform, or a sport you’ve always wanted to play, or your favorite player/coach. Spice it up by being a trophy or zombie-fying your uniform.
    2. If you’re like any other teenage guy and just want to wear a jersey, that works just as well.
  4. The makeup skills are phenomenal, you just don’t know what to do
    1. Skeleton makeup tutorials can be found anywhere on YouTube, all you have to do is pair it with a trendy outfit and you’re ready to go. Just look at Kylie Jenner and Tyga last Halloween.
    2. Maybe you do not want to totally paint your face, but you want to be the scary costume of the group. There is always sfx makeup such as fake cuts, bruises etc., to really bring out the creepy part of Halloween.
  5. Maybe you want to take the pun approach to a costume
    1. Everybody loves puns, especially when you can make it into costumes. You can go as anything from “Netflix and Chill”, a “Chick Magnet” or even a “social butterfly”. You can have everybody on their toes to trying to guess your costume.
