11 Halloween Costumes We Wore As 90’s Kids That Need To Make A Comeback

11 Halloween Costumes We Wore As 90’s Kids That Need To Make A Comeback

Wouldn’t it be great if this year we saw some throwbacks instead of a hundred Elsa’s trick-or- treating this year?

1. Raggedy Ann

Get your mom’s bright pink blush out of her makeup bag and dot your cheeks with black eyeliner and you’re good to go! If you can get past the fact that the real Annabelle was a Raggedy Ann doll, then you’ll definitely kill it at your next costume party.

2. Scooby-Doo

Perfect for all those group Halloween festivities. If you’re worried about your lack of Great Dane or Mystery Machine, fear not. Get your awkward older brother to be Shaggy, your Chihuahua to be Scooby, and you can pick up an old Orange sweater from Goodwill no sweat. Voila! Instant Mystery Inc.

3. Sailor Moon

Clearly she started the trend of the knee-high boots and throwing the peace sign in pictures. Besides, what’s cooler than dressing as a sailor and harnessing the power of the moon?

4. Barney and Friends

For some, Barney was the stuff of nightmares. For others, he and his pals were the lovable purple pre-historic beasts who sang about love and hugs. Either way, there’s no denying the cuteness of your little one’s in these costumes.

5. G.I. Joe

In the world we live in today, we can’t have enough real American heroes, even if the originals look nothing close to Channing Tatum.

6. Spice Girls

There’s nothing wrong with sticking to the classics and achieving the original #SquadGoals. But if you want to get really wild and crazy, you could always go as the literal Spice Girls and shake it up a bit.

7. Power Rangers

There’s a reason the Power Rangers have stood the test of time, and it isn’t just the colorful spandex. While every other group of friends at the costume party is going as the Ninja Turtles for the fifth year in a row, go-go as the original butt-kickers.

8. Rainbow Brite & Twink

If you do not know who Rainbow Brite and Twink are, shame on your childhood. But you have a chance to redeem yourself if you dress your children or younger siblings up in these colorful get-ups that no other child will know about! The best part? They won’t have that awkward stand-off so many of us had with all the other Cinderella’s on the block.

9. Power Puff Girls

The Power Puff Girls – or as I like to call them, the greatest things since sliced bread are a staple of great group Halloween costumes. If you were born after 1995 and have two best gal pals, it is all but expected of you to dedicate your lives to fighting crime and the forces of evil at least one Halloween.

10. Teletubbies

A flawless look at any age, complete the ensemble with Po’s red scooter and some Tubby Custard, and watch out for the other greatest British Invasion.

11. Blue’s Clues

Even though all our worlds were shattered the day we learned of Blue’s true gender, we can still honor our favorite childhood show with this costume and remember the good ol’ days. Back when Salt and Pepper made Paprika, Steve was the only human we cared about, the greatest feat you would accomplish was finding a clue, and life made sense.

The last 3-4 weeks of every college student’s semester are always crazy hectic. We have last minute assignments, group projects, and exams all squeezed into the last few weeks before break.

Sometimes we all need a little humor, and sometimes we are all a little dramatic, so why not experience the last few weeks of the semester as told by the king of drama himself, Todd Chrisley of Chrisley Knows Best.

1. Sitting in class listening to your professor explain upcoming assignments/exams.

2. When your group project members refuse to do anything until the night before it's due or just show up the day of to present.

3. When you and your roommate try to cook with whatever few ingredients you have left in stock.

Because we definitely want to avoid going to the grocery store at the end of the semester if we can.

4. When your parents get tired of you calling them about every little inconvenience in your life.

5. Sitting down to work on assignments.

6. Your thoughts when the professor is telling you what they want from you out of an assignment.

7. When you've had about 30 mental breakdowns in 2 days.

8. Trying to search out the class for the right group members.

9. The last few days of classes where everyone and everything is getting on your nerves.

10. When your friend suggests going out but you're just done with the world.

11. This. On the daily.

12. When all you want to do is snuggle up and watch Christmas movies.

13. Studying and realizing you know nothing.

14. When your finals are over and it's finally time to go home for break.

You're finally back to your old self.

A Step By Step Of How Your Thanksgiving Will Actually Go

Every year we think it will go differently, and yet...


It's pre-Christmas, and it will be a day of stress, love, and wonderful food.

1. You wake up to the sounds of a parent slamming pots and pans on the counter top


It is time. The day has begun and your mom or dad will start yelling for you any minute.

2. You finally make it downstairs and you're assigned your tasks before family arrives


There will be the "Make this table," or the "Dust the entire house because your cousins are coming and they won't notice but your aunt sure will. Oh, and please stay out of the kitchen." You know, the usual.

3. You try to eat breakfast and lunch but honestly you can not WAIT for dinner tonight and the smells coming from the kitchen are overwhelming


What are we celebrating again? I'm just excited to eat.

4. You rush and make your way to the grocery store at least once (maybe twice) because your parents can't leave the kitchen


"You would think mom wouldn't forget anything for tonight, but I guess it is pretty easy to forget gravy when you're making a million other dishes," you think to yourself as you try to defend the forgetfulness.

5. You spend a few hours feeling bored as you wait for your family members to arrive because you still aren't allowed in the kitchen and you find yourself watching that one "Friends" episode to kill some time. 


Football or "Friends"? Honestly I should ask my mom if she needs more help but I'll just keep watching this.

6. Your family finally arrives 


It is suddenly overwhelmingly loud and you now get to talk about your life for the next few hours. Food cannot come soon enough.

7. Hours and hours seemed to go by but dinner is finally ready


At llllaaaassssstttttttttt, my dinnnnnnneeeeerrrrrrrr will be mmmmiiiinnneeeeeeeeee!

8. You have to sit through and listen to either heated debate or six conversations at once while you eat 


Honestly, I'll just keep quiet and enjoy these mashed potatoes for their deliciousness.

9. You get one look from your mom and suddenly your busting the whole table


But hey, there are worse things in life. For instance, I'm not even toughing that turkey carcass I don't care what my parents say.

10. It's round two. You've been waiting for that pie all day 


There's this cool thing called a dessert stomach where you have more room for dessert than you did five minutes ago. Isn't that great?!?

11. Your family slowly starts to leave, and the food coma starts to settle in 


It's been a great meal, even if there was some arguing. At the end of it all, it's still been a great thanksgiving.
