Halloween, the time the dead rise, the time the ghosts and zombies come to torture us and we all need to lock our doors or run for our lives and- well, coming back to the less spooky reality, the time for decorations, candy, and costumes! Now, this is personally my favorite time of the year because of all the creative and fancy outfits we get to create and show off.
But what about those of us who have to spend this year’s festivities in our college dorms? I mean, can we party more? Yes. But can we also really look good without a lot of our home supplies? Why yes we certainly can. Here I have 30 excellent Halloween Costume ideas that you college guys have to try.
