Tips for Seniors

Disco: Grab a pair of sparkly leggings, throw on a giant t-shirt and big shades, and toss that boom box over your shoulder. Don’t forget your oversized kicks!

Royalty: Think Disney princess! Or class it up with a Kate Middleton-style dress and a pair of pumps.  Bravo!

The Superhero Movie: Capes, masks, and lots of spandex… Be original! Think of Flash, Green Lantern, and Wolverine.

Tips for Juniors

Rock ‘n’ Roll: Attack your wardrobe with a pair of scissors!  Add some biker gloves, loads of black eye makeup, and a cool leather jacket.

Athletes: Go with the classic eye-blacked football player, the half-calved lax bro, or the peppy cheerleader.  Go team.

Harry Potter: Grab your wand, cape, and broom, and think magic.

Tips for Sophomores

Country: Boots, hat, and flannel; you know the drill.  You can also try spicing it up with a white, lacey dress for a Taylor Swift look.

Local Heroes: Rock jeans and a cut off t-shirt with your fire hat, pull out the old (appropriate) police officer Halloween costume and handcuffs, or wear scrubs and a stethoscope.

Classic Disney: Grab some ears and dress as Minnie Mouse or her boy Mickey, or wear a collar and come as their pal Pluto.

Tips for Frosh

Jazz: Think classy.  Dress in your brother’s suit, put on a face moustache, or carry your recorder from elementary school.

Mad Scientists: Put your hair in a messy bun the night before so it’s wild the day of, grab some crazy goggles, and wear your longest white jacket.

March of the Penguins: Own a tuxedo t-shirt?  Wear it!  If not, rock as much black and white as you own and ask your dad for his old bow tie.  Good luck with this one, frosh!
