10 costumes for Halloween

With Halloween just around the corner, The Student Guide give you some costume ideas.


Spend Halloween as one of the most iconic horror characters of the 90's in this fantastic costume. Just don't forget to ask them the key question: What's your favourite scary movie?


A simple and student budget friendly way to spend your Halloween. Black clothes with bones painted on – simple.

Freddy Krueger

Take on the role as the burned and disfigured face of everyone’s favourite character from Nightmare on Elm Street films.


Halloween wouldn’t be Halloween without this blood sucking creature. Get hold of some friend’s make-up (or buy some) and give yourself a pale shade of skin. Then pour blood down an old shirt and you’re there.


Pulled off properly and this is a fantastic costume. Buy some cheap toilet roll and simply cover yourself in it.


Another easy and budget-efficient costume for your Halloween plans. Simply get hold of some black trousers, a red shirt and cape. Then head to your nearest pound shop for the quintessential fork.


Wear a bit more fake tan than usual


Colour your nose in black and draw some whiskers on


Rip up an old shirt and jeans, douse your hair with hairspray, put white face powder and throw blood all over yourself.

And finally if you’re really struggling…

Lady Gaga

Go into the kitchen and stick the first thing you find on your head!
