College is full of sweaty house parties that can be made bearable by one thing and one thing only - a theme. Getting to dress up in a fun costume for a themed party can make almost any person tolerate being shoulder to shoulder with some drunk guy from your psychology lecture. But, themes can grow tiring when you've gone to about a million Hawaiian and toga parties. There are other themes out there! Here are a few suggestions to make your theme party stand out.
1. Aliens and Astronauts
Your party will be out of this world..get it?
2. Ornithology Bros and Lawn Flamingos Darty
What's better than a darty? A darty where everyone is dressed as lawn flamingos. You don't even have to go all out with this one. Enough people on a lawn with a hot pink shirt on will get the point across.
3. Seven Deadly Sins
For this party, each different room of the house is decorated in the theme of each of the seven deadly sins (therefore, you'll need seven rooms). If seven rooms aren't available just have everyone dress as their favorite sin.
4. John Hughes
Whether it's a member of The Breakfast Club or Ferris Bueller himself, a party of all John Hughes movie characters would be totally rad.
5. Boston Tea Party
Get decked out in your colonial best to celebrate the OG American party. And, if you can't find a white button-up or tall socks to tuck your pants into, try dressing as the actual tea.
6. Sexy Historical / Political Figures
Have you ever really wanted to be a dead president, but at the same time give off a little sex appeal? Then this is the party for you!
7. Athletes and Mathletes
Wear your favorite jersey or put on a pair of fake glasses and get ready to party.
8. Slumber Party
In case you needed an excuse to wear your pajamas out.
9. Where's Waldo
Have you ever wanted to be in a life-size Where's Waldo puzzle?
10. Guy Fieri
It's like a normal party, but everyone is just dressed as Guy Fieri.
11. Cowboys and Cacti
Even if you don't live in the Wild West you can still dress like it.
12. Bad and Boujee
Break out your fur coats, brand names and stacks of cash to get ready to make it rain
13. Scientist Chicks and Pickle Rick's
If you've never seen Rick and Morty, you might not get this one. But, you can modify this to be all science related.
You can either pick one decade to rock looks as or have everyone dress up as a different decade.
Why wait until you're favorite holiday to dress up? Have everyone dress as their favorite holiday.
When you can't think of a good enough theme, so you have everyone dress as their favorite meme.
17. You Are What You Eat
Fulfill this classic saying and dress as your favorite food. Warning, this party will make you hungry.
18. You Are What You Drink
Same concept as above but with drinks.
19. You Are What You Netflix
Again, same as above but with your favorite binge-show character.
20. Vampires and Umpires
One of the more specific and unorthodox options on this list, but honestly why not at this point?
21. Drop it Like F. Scott
Put on a nice tie or a flapper skirt and live lavish for the night like Gatsby did.
22. Dynamic Duos
Grab your boyfriend, girlfriend, best friend or even a stranger for all I care.
23. ABH: Anything But Human
Whether is an animal or an object, make sure to dress up as anything but a human.
24. Get Nauti
This is the kind of nauti your parents would approve of. Dress in an outfit fit for the sea and party like you're on a yacht.
25. Life Alert
Everyone dresses like they own an AARP card.
26. Gym Teachers and Mythical Creatures
Again, this one just rhymed, but - hey - it's fun
27. Pitbull and Pitbulls
Either dress as the rapper Pitbull or the dog breed pit bull.
And that's all, folks! I hope this list gives you some party inspiration!
