10 Overlooked Halloween Costumes For HallOUween

Ohio University's Halloween block party is the third largest block party in the United States. An event this large calls for more unique costumes than just your stereotypical black cat, "Where's Waldo," or illegal cop impersonation. To get your creative juices flowing, here are 10 Halloween costumes that haven't received enough recognition throughout the years.

1. Fred from "Spongebob"

You know, that guy that constantly screams, "My leg!" Your friends will enjoy that one all night long.

2. George Washington

I'm sure we'll see some Donald Trumps out there this Halloween, but why not do an epic throwback to 1776 with any one of our great founding fathers?

3. Bat-Davis

For a spin on the traditional Bat or Batman costume, go as the Bat that took over the McDavis's house last spring. For easy identification, carry around a picket sign from the protest.

4. AOL Running Man

Step one: dress in all yellow. Step two: Pose as though you're running.

5. Character's Halloween Costumes

If you're having a hard time coming up with your own costume, steal one from a favorite television character! For example, "How I Met Your Mother's" sexy pumpkin, "Friend's" Spudnick, or the classic Little Red Ravin from the Hood ("That's So Raven").

6. The Brawny Man

Carry around rolls of paper towels to every party you attend — we promise you'll make some new (maybe messy) friends by the end of the night.

7. Coconut Head

Give yourself a bowl cut and go as one of the greatest characters in middle school history. Only complete with a terrified expression.

8. Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Male group costumes are hard to come by, and I know of nothing that speaks more of friendship than a dead guy and all the words in the English Language. George Merriam and Noah Webster would be proud to be your Halloween inspiration.

9. Siri

Otherwise known as Susan Bennett, have your friends ask you questions all night and respond in your best robot voice. Although I don't know what she looks like, neither does anybody else! Get creative.

10. Buzz Aldrin

Sure, Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon, but lets not forget to give credit to Buzz Aldrin: the second man on the moon that everyone forgot about. Neil couldn't have done it by himself!

You may have to explain yourself all night, but at least you won't be deemed "basic!"

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
