What to Wear for Halloween 2017


Halloween is always scary… especially when you don’t know what to wear. While ghosts and ghouls may occasionally haunt your house, a bad costume will haunt your Instagram forever. Don’t be the person that “forgot Halloween was today” or who “didn’t have time to get a costume” because with these helpful hints you’ll have no excuses.

Take a cue from these Magnet students who already know what they’re wearing for Halloween 2017, and start preparing for this October 31st. Some students will be going as characters from hit Disney movies. For example, Megan Holderness will be dressing as Gabriella from High School Musical by wearing a lab coat and wildcat red dress. Kira Adkins will also be taking the Disney route, by dressing as a Troll. However, Boone Jones and Meredith Coen took a more unique route. Boone is planning on dressing up as Billy Mays and Meredith plans on being a Gucci Flipflop. Have clothes lying around from spirit week or a sports team? Declan Sykes and Kori Swanson are planning on utilizing what they already have to create a killer costume. Declan will be dressing in the classic grandma costume he wore for spirit week and Kori will be wearing her hockey gear and be a hockey player. Even a few teachers plan on dressing up for Halloween this year. Ms. Cornehl is known for her well thought out and creative costumes. Last year she was a deviled egg, but her costume for this year is top secret and will be revealed on October 31st.
