5 Last-Minute Halloween Costumes

The problem with Halloween is that it comes right during midterm season, leaving those of us too preoccupied to find a costume. But, never fear! Listed below are some quick costumes that you can put together using household objects or possessions. Some below are even taken from T.V. shows, so stay tuned to see what genius costumes I have included in this list.

1. Three Hole Punch:

This costume is great not only because it is very simple to make (just cut out three black circles from construction paper and tape/glue them to a button down shirt) but also because it is a reference to one of the best shows ever: The Office!

2. Nudist on Protest:

For this costume, you can literally wear anything you want. Just wear something. And, if you want to spice up this non-costume, you can even make a protest poster. How easy is that? You might even get an eye roll when someone asks you what you are. And, isn’t that the best marker for how good a costume is?

3. Happy:

Despite the name, this might be the darkest costume on this list. Halloween is a time to dress up like something you’re not, right? So, throw on some brightly colored clothes (heck, tie a balloon to your wrist) and tell people that this year you decided to be “happy”. And look at how believably happy those people are!

4. Miscellaneous Animal:

This is a favorite among sorority girls. But, hey, if it ain’t broke… Anyway, you can make your animal as sexy or as lifelike as you wish, but animal ears are always a must.

5. Emoji:

Instead of being a really awesome emoji (like the devil one or the dancing red lady), you could dress up like one of the emojis that just look like people doing weird poses. For instance, to dress up like the emoji below, just wear a long sleeved purple/pink shirt and make an X with your arms all night (or just when someone is confused about your costume).

But, there you have it, 5 last-minute costumes that require minimal effort. Who knew dressing up for Halloween could be this easy?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
