What Halloween Costumes Are We Expecting to See this Year?

Halloween is right around the corner, so time is running out to figure out costumes. Some people might already have theirs decided from the minute the clock struck twelve on November 1, 2021, but others might still be struggling to decide what to wear. If that’s the case, here’s what some Colonels are wanting to see this year, and are surprisingly switching it up from the same things we keep seeing like “Scream” and “Purge” masks. 

Sophomore Megan Armstrong says, “I honestly would love to see some minion costumes again. Kids in minion costumes are really cute, especially when they’re the real size.” 

“People need to step it up with the scary costumes,” sophomore Katelyn Freeman states. She, too, is tired of the boring repetitive ones we’ve been consistently seeing.

“Pirates! I think it would be funny to see people walking around in  eyepatches and saying ‘argh!’” sophomore Lia Day says. 

“Something not basic, but something cute,” junior Shelby Morrison, weighs in, not giving anything specific but some criteria to look for.

Personally, I’m looking forward to seeing lots of funny and creative group costumes. For example, for bigger friend groups, the Scooby-Doo gang would be fun and pretty easy to put together. Also, paired costumes that go together are really fun to see. For example, Disney couples or characters that go together. They’re fairly easy to coordinate with a friend or a partner and are amusing to see walking by. 

Even though these are costumes that others want to see, a Halloween costume should represent something that you enjoy! If you don’t want to wear a certain thing, don’t feel pressured just because this is what others want to see. There are endless possibilities for what you can be, so just go wild!
