Blogger Biography





It’s mid-October! Can you smell the crisp air? Can you hear the leaves crunching underneath your feet? Are all the stores packed with Halloween decorations, costumes, and candies? Halloween will be here sooner than you know it! Are you ready? Let’s find out…

1. Are You In The Mood?

Amp up for Halloween by watching scary movies, going on hay rides, finding your way out of a corn maze, pumpkin carving, apple picking, and haunted houses! Decorating your college living space will definitely get you and others in the spirit. There is plenty to do – so get started!

2. What Are You Doing?

Halloween is on a Wednesday this year, but don’t let that stop you from having fun! Whatever it is you plan on doing, make it festive! Passing out candy to trick-or-treaters can be fun if you dress up, play spooky music, hand out good treats, and maybe throw a few spooks out along the way to the older kids. Or, throw a Halloween Party with tons of festive treats, a costume contest, or a murder mystery.

3. Do You Have A Costume?

Face it – we may be too old to still go trick-or-treating, but we will never be too old to stop dressing up. You can even create your own costume if you’re feeling crafty – don’t feel limited to choose what the stores offer. Think of an idea first, and then find pieces to pull it all together. If you’re in a relationship, it is cute to match costumes like Peanut Butter & Jelly, Ketchup & Mustard, etc. Even a group of friends can pull off that same idea by all going in group costumes – The Avengers, The Jersey Shore, Crayons, etc. Get creative!

4. Do You Believe In Ghosts?

It is classic to tell or listen to ghost stories around this time of year. But what about experiencing it for yourself? Search for local hauntings around your college campus and go ghost hunting with a bunch of friends! Make an event out of it – take pictures, record noises, and learn the history of what happened there. Be careful – you never know what you might find!

What do you do to get ready for Halloween? What will you be doing this year?

The Most Popular Costumes this Halloween

Every year in October, or sooner if you like to plan ahead, college students start making Halloween plans. We find out from our friends what they are doing, think about who we want to spend Halloween night with, and most importantly, what our costume will be.

The costume used to be the most important part to me. (How else would I have come up with the idea to be an Aerosmith groupie one year?) However, because I work with kids, I get enough of a Halloween fix at work seeing what their costumes are. Still, it never stops being entertaining to peruse the costume websites to see what is most popular that year.

First, you have Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga is probably the most fun you can have with a costume because the pop star is famous for her head-turning outfits. To make sure others actually recognize who you’re supposed to be, grab a wig in a bold color, some glittery eyelashes, and sky high heels. Just don’t run out and slap some meat on your body, á la Lady Gaga at the VMA’s last year.

Since yet another Pirates of the Caribbean movie has been released, it seems there is no shortage of pirate costumes. For the guys, if you can look as good as Johnny Depp then I’ve got no problem with yet another pirate, but girls, the slutty pirate costume is just a little bit unoriginal. When you see a hundred other slutty pirates walking the city streets Halloween night, you’ll thank me for telling you to try again!

It seems that it wasn’t until the Spiderman movies came out that flaunting your crush on a comic book superhero was considered “cool.” Well that tradition has carried over and now there is bound to be no shortage of superheroes. From Batman and the Green Lantern, to Spiderman and Wolverine, it might just be that superheroes are the staple for college guys. For women, we get to be slinky and sexy without being slutty.

Whatever you choose to be, have fun with it! The whole point of Halloween is that we get to dress up as something we aren’t. So be original and get creative because it’s going to be another whole year before we get to do this again.
