Halloween is just around the corner (literally) and between recovering from FSU weekend and attempting to keep your head above water through midterms, your costume is probably the last thing on your mind. After all, let’s be honest, if you’re a girl you’ll probably end up being some sort of animal (whether it’s a cat, a bunny, a mouse – you know the drill) and if you’re a guy you’ll more then likely end up throwing on a poncho or a couple of leis and call it a day. Ladies, we know Halloween is the one occasion where “less is more” is widely accepted, but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for a basic look! Take a walk on the wild side and explore these festive alternatives! Whether you’re the type who can appreciate a good pun or are simply DIY challenged, there’s something for everyone.
