Oh yeah... that...
By Rachel James (Treasurer/Writer)
It’s Halloween weekend! And if you’re anything like me, you have zero idea what your costume will be. I always start October with the greatest of intentions, but then the 31st rolls around, I’ve prepped nothing, and I go as a leprechaun. Again.
So for any other procrastinators, here are some great last minute costume ideas.

You’ve got a little black dress in your closet. You’ve got a pair of black heels. Slick your hair back, put on some red lipstick, and you can be totally 80’s without all of the work of neon and a crimping iron.
Red baseball cap, gray t-shirt, ear buds and a ridiculous grin are all you need to pull off this look. Bonus points if you walk around carrying a dumbbell all night. Extra bonus points if you also have the Ryan budget plan and a calculator.
If you have a baby doll dress and combat boots at your disposal, slap on some red lipstick and a bored expression and you’re good to go. Or grab some torn jeans and flannel... and a bored expression and you’re good to go! If you’re in a couple, put on these outfits, tell everyone you’re Kurt and Courtney and ask them what they think about the alleged Nirvana musical in the works.
Finally, if nothing else is happening, stop by Duane Reade, pick up the last pair of animal ears they have, and you can quote Mean Girls to people all night.
I’ll leave you with the ladies of EmotiStyle giving us some extra ideas of this year’s festivities. Happy Halloween!
