Halloween is such a fun time in college, so make sure you are prepared with the cutest costumes for every night!
I feel like every halloween I am always going crazy trying to figure out what I should be going as. Especially in college when you need multiple costumes, it feels impossible to try to find a few cute costumes.
If you are going with a group of friends this year, I’ve got the perfect costumes that will make you the cutest group at the party. Most of these can be perfect for any size group and look great either way!
This post is all about friends Halloween costumes in college!
Sun and moon
This is such a beautiful costume idea for two friends. You can have so much fun putting on cute makeup and matching all of your silver and gold accessories!
And if you have more than two people, you can add to this costume as well! Another person can be the stars, someone can be the night sky, etc.
Angel and devil
Yes, I know angel and devil costumes are extremely common, but they are common for a reason. These costumes are so cute for two people and make the perfect best friends costumes!
Love a good cowgirl costume! This stuff is so cute and you can even wear the flannel shirt after halloween (so don’t feel like your wasting money buying the costume!)
This cave girl costume could not be any easier. Just order the outfit and a few bone-themed hair clips and you are done.
Plus, this outfit is perfect for bad hair days because your hair is supposed to be a mess anyway!
You can wear something like the photo, or get super creative with a Hippie costume. Just look up Hippie outfit inspo on google or pinterest and you’ll find tons of ideas for outfits that you can put together using stuff you already have in your closet.
This costume like the cowgirl one is also great because you can wear some of this stuff after halloween, so it’s not a complete waste.
Yes, this is another slightly basic costume, but I had to put it on this list anyway!
This is perfect for a big group of people because you don’t all have to be matching perfectly. As long as everyone is wearing red and white, it will look great in group photos.
If you are into makeup, a skeleton costume is the perfect costume for you. You can get SOOO creative with your face makeup with this costume.
Either you can do half your face like the picture shows, or go all out and paint your entire face like a skeleton. If you really want to go crazy, paint your hands too!
Go as a prisoner this year for halloween! All you need to buy are the prison outfit and use whatever black or white tank top you have.
The best part about this cosume: you don’t need to buy anything!
Find whatever sports equipment, uniforms, and accessories that you already have and make it into a costume. Whether it’s a cheerleading uniform and pom-poms, a baseball jersey and baseball cap, or a soccer jersey and high socks, anything works!
This costume is a super affordable and easy last minute option if you don’t have time to order anything.
Little Red Riding Hood
This is such a cute costume for one person, and pairs perfectly with other group costumes. You can either have one person be little red riding hood and another the wolf, or have a different fairy tale character for each person.
As an added bonus, you won’t have to buy much for this costume if you already have a plain black dress, so it’s super affordable!
A mermaid is a classic costume for a reason. This is so cute and will make you look absolutely gorgeous. Plus, it’s a fun way to use some crazy makeup, whether it’s sparkles and stars all over your face or a blue-themed eye look.
If you already have a plain white t-shirt you don’t mind dirtying and cutting up, this will be a super cheap and easy costume!
Grab a t-shirt, some scissors, and red dye, and go to town making the craziest zombie shirt you can! This is such a fun activity to do with a group of friends to get your costumes ready together.
Aliens make the perfect costume for halloween this year! You will most likely have to buy most of the pieces, but at least it all comes in an easy multipack so you don’t have to deal with ordering a million things.
This is such a cute costume to do with some friends! Plus, the best part about it is that you can pair the outfit with a leather jacket, so you won’t be freezing you butt off at the end of October in just a crop top.
Animal onesies are an easy and comfortable halloween costume idea for a group of friends. For some, you may even already have an animal onesie and in that case won’t have to buy a thing for your costume!
The best part about this one is you won’t be friends if your are somewhere cold for halloween. These onesies usually keep you super warm!
This costume has been done time and time again and still manages to look cute every single time I see it on social media. It is super easy because all you really need to buy is the robe. Then, just wear whatever black clothes you have and put on some makeup to make it more realistic.
If you want to get really fancy, you can even buy boxing gloves to wear. However, those may get kind of annoying to carry around all night, so make sure you consider that before you buy them!
Daphne and Velma
For this costume you can basically use whatever clothes you have that match the colors of Daphne and Velma. If you don’t have, just go to any store near you and try to find the right pieces.
This one is super easy and can be put together without too much money if you are on a budget this Halloween!
Astronaut costumes are so cute for halloween this year. This is perfect for both a friends costume or a couples costume!
This one is super easy and you most likely won’t need to buy a thing! All you gotta wear is an over-sized button down shirt, whatever shorts you have, and a baseball cap. Then just grab a solo cup and you are the perfect frat boy.
Borrow a shirt from a guy friend and you should be good to go. This one is definitely one of the most affordable friends halloween costumes in college.
Grab some pom poms and an outfit and you’ve got yourself a cheerleader costume. I didn’t link too much for this one because your outfit will depend on what team you are a cheerleader for.
To save some money, use a cheerleading uniform you already have (if you were ever a cheerleader). If not, just buy an outfit on amazon that matches the colors you are choosing.
Then, buy some pom poms to finish the look!
This is a cute and super easy costume idea that could work for a group of people or just two friends. Plus, you may already have most of the outfit in your closet, so it definitely won’t break the bank.
School girls is a classic halloween costume and such a cute one! You are most likely going to have to buy a few things for this costume, but it is 100% worth it once you put it all together.
These are one of the most popular drinks, so why not make it into a cute halloween costume.
This costume is SOOO easy: all you need are silver shorts, a white crop top, and a printer. Then, just print the white claw logo and attach it to your shirt.
If you want to get really fancy, you can even iron on the logo to the shirt to make it more secure. However, either method works just fine, especially if it is just for one night.
This halloween costume is absolutely beautiful and super easy too. All you need is a white dress or two piece shirt and skirt. Pair that with gold accessories and some gold accent makeup and you have the cutest costume!
Just like the white claw costume, you can literally just attach a barbie logo to any old white tube top and have the perfect costume. Wear that with some pink shorts or a pink skirt and throw on some other pink accessories!
This one is super easy and makes the cutest costume, whether it’s just you or a whole group of friends.
Wrap yourself in some caution tape and throw on a vest and you literally have a halloween costume. This could not be any easier!
All you need to buy for this one is fake blood (and if you don’t want to buy it, you could also just use lipstick!). Then just pick out any little black dress and you’ve got yourself a vampire costume.
This is a good costume for a big group, because everyone can wear what they have but you will all still look like you match. Plus, putting on the fake blood is so much fun to do with your friends.
This is such a cute halloween group costume. Each person just needs to pick a fruit and decorate a t-shirt to match. Everyone looks super cute on their own, and even cuter when you put it all together and make a “fruit salad.”
For these friends halloween costumes in college, all you need to do is distress any white dress you have to make it look like a mummy.
To make it even more realistic, try wrapping the dress in toilet paper or gauze. That way, you can have pieces falling off like a mummy. You can even use toilet paper or gauze in your hair as well to complete the look!
This is definitely one of the more complicated halloween costume ideas because you aren’t going to have a lot of it lying around in your closet. However, if you have the money to buy a few things, this is the cutest costume for a group!
Cops are classic friends halloween costumes in college, and for good reason. This is such a cute and easy look that will be perfect for a group of friends.
As an added bonus, you can usually buy all of the cop accessories in a multipack, so you get a bunch of cute accessories and only have to order one thing.
All you really need for this costume is a red tutu and some minnie mouse ears and you’re good.
Plus, this costume would be SO cute with a whole group of people matching!
