High School Halloween Costumes

High School Halloween Costumes www.traceeorman.com


Does your high school celebrate Halloween with a dress-up day? Ours does, with contests (sponsored by Student Council) for the best costumes. We finish the day inviting the elementary to our gymnasium to parade through in all their costumes. Our principal gives them each a bag of treats as they exit the building. 

Deciding what to wear is always the hardest part for both teachers and students. Here are some of our favorite costumes from the last couple of years. 

Cards Against Humanity teacher group costume: What made this one even more fitting is that our mascot is a Cardinal. ;)

We have Aunt Alexandra, Scout (in her ham costume--made with chicken wire and paper mache), Jem, and Miss Maudie. Unfortunately, Boo, Atticus, and Bob Ewell all wimped out on us. 


Pokemon couple costume: It's Ash and Pikachu.

"Mean Girls" is always a favorite each year.

Wilson from "Home Improvement": This is a really easy costume to make for a guy. Just glue some popsicle sticks, wear a flannel or plaid shirt, and throw on a fishing hat.

Snapchat Filter costume: It's usually pretty easy to find animal ears for this one.

Donald Trump costumes: We had a couple of these last year. I think they won for "Scariest Costume."

Fork in the Road costume: Puns, idioms, and other figurative language examples are always clever and usually easy to pull off.

Kermit the Frog "But That's None of My Business" Meme: For a funny costume, you can always count on meme characters. Pair it with a caption that relates to your school.

The brothers from "Step Brothers": What made this couple costume even better is that these two are actually step brothers.
