Halloween is only a few days away and is a time to have fun getting dressed up as practically anything you want to be. This year, the college gods have blessed us by putting Halloween on a Saturday and if you’re not a freshman, you know what that means: two nights of fun and two different costumes!
Now if you obsess over Halloween like I do, you probably plan your costume months in advance and wait around until it’s finally time to wear it. Kudos to your crafty self for not procrastinating! But maybe you’re more of a last-minute type of person who scrambles to find a costume the day before Halloween. Or maybe you’re the type of person who wears normal street clothes when you go out on Halloween because you “couldn’t think of anything.” Here are 70 worthy costume options I’ve seen throughout this year's picking process that I would love to see people sporting on Saturday. Feel free to adapt any of these ideas and make them your own!
1. Ginger Bread Man
If you're a red head and I see you dressed like this, I'm buying you a drink.
2. Brawny Man
Nothing's manlier than paper towels.
3. Rosie The Riveter
4. Elmer’s Glue
People will be stuck on you all night!
5. Ned Flanders
6. Ceiling Fan
7. Laziest of the Lazy
Even this is better than wearing no costume at all.
8. Regina George
9. Beanie Baby
How to do it: dress up as any animal you want and wear a paper TY sign around your neck. Easy!
Or, even better, if you happen to own a burger suit, wear it with the hat and glasses and be Heisenburger.

Lazy, cheap, and clever. What can be better?
