Easy Halloween costumes for students

  • Cruella De Vil
  • Candyman
  • Squid Game
  • Baby Yoda
  • Men in Black
  • Arthur
  • Kim and Kanye at the Met Gala

Cruella De Vil

There’s nothing quite as scary as a woman who murders dogs to fuel her fashion obsession. All you need to complete this look is a black and white wig (around £10 on Amazon) and the most outrageous, eye-catching dress in your closet. Throw in some striking make-up and a couple of dalmatians, and you’ll really stand out from the crowd.


When it comes to scary Halloween costume ideas, it’s hard to top Candyman – a character whose very name evokes nightmares. The best part about this costume is that it’s very easy to pull off – all you need is a trench coat and a hook for your hand. In the meantime, stay away from any mirrors…

Squid Game

It’s the most popular craze on Netflix right now, and it’s also likely to dominate many a Halloween party. To go as one of the Squid Game contestants, look for a cheap green tracksuit, and apply your contestant number with some stick-on letters. To go as a guard, you’ll need a red hooded jacket and a black fencing mask. For extra authenticity, douse your costume in some bloodstains.

Baby Yoda

Halloween isn’t all blood and gore – cute Halloween outfits are very much a thing. Why not go as this ultimate meme sensation? You can get a Baby Yoda onesie for around £25 pounds, or just pair some cheaper Yoda ears with your bathrobe – easy!

Men in Black

If you are looking for cheap student Halloween costumes, look no further than the Men in Black. All you need is a smart black suit, tinted shades, and a moustache (if you’re going for the Will Smith version). If you really want to complete the look, don’t forget to invest in a neuralyzer!


Make your Halloween a wonderful time of day with an easy-to-do Arthur costume. Get out your blue jeans, and pair it with a yellow sweater, glasses and some animal ears. Keep your fist clenched to really sell the character.

Kim and Kanye at the Met Gala

Going for a couples Halloween costume? Make a true statement with this all-black ensemble from Kim and Kanye. You just need to get two black morph suits, and drape a long black scarf over your shoulders. Just be prepared – you might be confused for a Dementor in Harry Potter.

Every Student’s student rooms are the best place to begin your Halloween preparations. You can decorate your space, pre-drink with your friends, prepare for a spooky night to remember.
