It’s that time of year again! That fabulous, pumpkin-aura’d, crunchy leaves, freeze-because-your-costume-is-so-sexy holiday we all love so much. Undeniably however, never too far behind the thrill of mistaken identities and cheap firecrackers lags the apprehension of how to top last year’s costume. Why not try something different this year?
LocAZu is here to help with 3 great Campus costume ideas to get you going this year (And classroom appropriate!.. mostly).
1. Breaking Bad
Trick or treat, Bitches. AMC’s hit series is a great source of inspiration this year. Walter White’s multiple personas make it easy to portray his character in any number of ways, try these for starters:
- The Cook: Ah, the classic chemist turned Meth cook. You’ll need a Hazmat suit, but in case you don’t even know what that is let alone where to get your hands on one, why not use a raincoat instead? Or even a painters’ suit? Equally Effective.
- Heisenburg: Perhaps easier, just make sure you have the hat down and a sketchy pair of shades. Grow your own goatee (if you can) or else let a trusted friend have their way with a sharpie. Stick-on facial hair works as well, available at most costume shops.

If you’re interested in upgrading to a partner costume, Jesse Pinkman is even easier to portray. Baggy pants, baggy shirt, a cigarette behind the ear, and a vulgar mouth.
2. Tall, Extra Hot, Mocha
Why not dress up as the fuel that keeps you going between classes? That’s right, your favourite cup of Java. Have fun with your customization: Are you a tall Blonde? Skinny Caramel Machiatto? Venti Dark Roast? Cinnamon Dolce Latte, extra sweet? Get creative. So simple to do! Find a white dress, some brown parcel paper, and an artist friend to draw on your logo of choice. Guaranteed to get a latte compliments!
3. Group Costume: 3 Blind Mice!
So simple and so effective! Grab two friends, and dress up head to toe in gray. Alternatively, feel free to dress it up, black and white style. Throw on some sunglasses, buy a cheap cane (or acquire on somewhere), and buy your starter mouse ears & tail set (You can also easily make your own using a headband and construction paper for the ears, and an elastic band and some string for the tail). Ta-da! Extra points for whiskers and a nose.
And there you have it! With control over how much to cover up or how much to show off, these costume ideas can go from lecture hall to campus pub. Happy halloween from all of us at locAZu, and send us some of your campus costumes!
