Halloween costumes are always fun to put together. They’re also equally stressful. What’s the perfect costume to wear? What’s popular? What’s easy to make? These questions can keep us college students up at night almost as much as a good horror film. Here are some options for people wishing to go as something that’ll really get people talking come that Halloween party.
1  .Breaking Bad
What better way to carry on the legacy of Walter White than to dress up as him for Halloween? The best part is you can easily go as Walter no matter how much money you have. It all depends on what Walter costume you want. For the full effect, you can go in Walter’s meth-making suit, provided you’re willing to spend $48.99 at If you’re strapped for cash (and if you are, maybe you shouldn’t consider going as a rich drug lord), you can easily just get a fake goatee, glasses and fedora. Or just wear a green button-down shirt and no pants. Your choice.
2.  Minion
Those adorable “Despicable Me” minions are all the rage lately, so why not go as one of the little yellow monsters? You can find actual minion costumes online, or just get a pair of overalls, black boots and gloves and a pair of goggles. Brownie points if you paint your skin yellow and speak gibberish the whole night.
3.  Miley Cyrus
The VMA costume would probably be the easiest to put together, but after “Wrecking Ball”, maybe you want to be really bold and go that route. Probably not, though. Just giving options.
4.  Daft Punk
If you want to really dress up in style, dish out the money to go as one of the robotic members of Daft Punk. After “Get Lucky”, the electronic duo has never been more popular. But that might cost more than you’re willing to spend for authentic helmets. You can always make a cardboard helmet, bring a boombox and just blast Daft Punk all night. People might get it.
