Having just started university, you’ll want to make the most of the parties and revelry that goes with the territory. A great way of making the most of all the fun is to indulge in outrageous freshers week costumes. Here is our guide on how to dress to impress, amaze and astound!
1. Immoral Banker
Borrow a suit, get yourself a cigar; and arm yourself with a bag that is illustrated with pound
signs. Spend the evening telling people about what a nightmare it is when bonus time
comes around; and how you understand what it is like to be an ordinary person.
2. Michael Jackson
Cover your face with talcum powder and put on some heavy black eye liner. Make your lips
look bigger using lip liner. Wear black tight trousers and a black shirt. Add a
cuddly toy monkey or even a scarf covering part of your face.
3. Ghost of Hitler
Wear a suit or shirt and trousers, adding an armband. Draw on a moustache and practise
your Nazi salute!
4. Botched plastic surgery victim
Use an eye liner to draw stitches on your face, and add some fake blood. Wrap a bandage
round your head and add sunglasses.
Cut some large bits of cardboard that will cover your torso, and draw icons on the front to
make it look like a screen. Add pictures if you dare!
6. Michaela McCollum
Put your hair in a top knot, make yourself look pale with talcum powder, and add a large bag
for your ‘haul’!
7. Big Brother Eye
Draw a copy of the iconic ‘eye’ image that we associate with the reality programme onto
cardboard and wrap it round yourself. You can tell everyone you’re watching!
8. Osama Bin Laden
Wear a beard or draw one on, and add a turban (you can use a large scarf for this).
9. Alan Carr
Wear large square black rimmed glasses, and add some false protruding teeth (you can buy
these in joke shops).
10. Facebook News Feed
Using large pieces of cardboard that you can wrap around yourself, write the most outrageous
status updates that you can find on your friend’s pages. You’ll get everyone talking!
Outrageous freshers week costumes are a great way to get that party started with a bang; and will become talking points wherever you go. So, what are you waiting for?
