10 Comfy Halloween Costumes You Can Wear All Day On Campus


When it comes to Halloween costumes, there are a lot of options. Sometimes too many options. Some are cute and fun, but not exactly daytime appropriate. Some costumes are elaborately awesome, but not the kind of thing you can wear and still function in your daily life.

1. Loose leaf paper 

This costume is comfy and easy to make. Just get a white T-shirt and white sweats, and draw your loose leaf lines in. Giant inflatable pencil is optional.

2. A minion

The minions are the best part of the Despicable Me movies, and they’re also a delightfully easy Halloween costume. Pair a yellow shirt with blue overalls and you’re good to go. As a bonus, you’ll already have goggles on for biology lab.

3. Rosie the Riveter 

Want a costume that’s easy, comfy, and showcases your feminist views? Rosie the Riveter fits the bill. Jeans, a blue shirt, a red bandana, and you’re good to go. Just remember to hold your arm up like this all day. It counts as a workout.

4. Crazy cat lady

Want an excuse to go to class in a robe, not brush your hair, and cushion yourself in comfy stuffed animals? “Crazy cat lady” is the costume for you. Warning: Might lead to cat naps in class.

5. Low-key skeleton

A cut-up T-shirt over a black shirt is a casual (and comfy) skeleton costume.

Happy Halloween! #DIYskeletoncostume 🎃👻

6. ’80s jazzercise instructor

Embrace your inner ’80s aerobics enthusiast by going totally Flashdance. All you need are bright neon colors, leggings, leg warmers, a sweatband, and you’re set. Finally, a real excuse to go to class in workout clothes.

7. Hogwarts student

If you have to be in school, why not dress for the school you really want to attend? Hogwarts. Wizards know that comfort is key.

8. Where’s Waldo?

Jeans, a striped shirt, striped beanie, and glasses and you’re in costume. Literally, this could be an outfit you would wear any day of the fall.

9. Unicorn

Always be yourself. Unless you can be a unicorn. Then be a unicorn.

10. Fresh fruit

Dress in the color of your favorite fruit, add a headband with some leaves and you have a cute and comfy costume.
