College + Halloween

My last year in college, I didn't get to experience Halloween because I had the lovely pleasure of working, plus there was over a foot of snow on the ground thanks to a hurricane. But, the first 3 years were awesome.

So of course, I had to link up with Helene and Sarah to share!

Freshman Year

I went to a teeny, tiny Methodist college but that didn't stop us from having an awesome Halloween. I originally wasn't planning to dress up, but last minute, I decided to be a hippie because my friend happened to have a dress that would work for it.

To be completely honest, I don't remember much of this evening but I remember having an absolute blast. Most of this being because of this group of people: 

Sophomore Year 

Christian and I has just started dating and he was out of town for the weekend, but that didn't stop us from going to the party hosted by his rugby team and having an absolutely blast. It was a typical college Halloween party - slutty outfits, kegs, packed dance floor and a naked girl.

A pirate and two trolls.
Oh. Is that not normal? Halfway through the party some girl walks in butt-naked. No one knows who she is or how she got there. Let me add that it was October in Boone.. It was honestly like 30 degrees - maybe colder and this poor girl has no idea she's not wearing clothes. Luckily, the guys who lived at the house found her something to wear and she was covered by the time the party was broken up.

Junior Year

I convinced Christian to do a couple costume with me. Mainly because he neither of us could think of anything so we went as Bonnie and Clyde. We also went out with the rugby club again, but to avoid cops and naked girls we stuck to the bars.

We were also supposed to get a ride home, but somehow four of us ended up walking home with barely any clothing in less than 20 degrees. It's about a 20 minute walk but when you're already tired, your feet hurt from heels and it's freezing it took a lot longer. And of course we complained the whole time and I even made Christian carry me piggy-back style for while because my feet were so cold.

This year was by far my favorite Halloween, though, because we had our whole group together and nothing too crazy happened. It was just a blast.

Take note of the Uggs behind me. It was COLD out there.

That is really weird about the strange girl just walking in naked! Did she say anything at all to explain being naked, or where she thought she was going?

I love the Bonnie and Clyde costume, I think it's the best although the trolls were pretty creative.

Oh gosh completely naked?! Haha oh colllege. Junior year Peter and I did a couples costume - we were the ice climbers from Mario Brothers, I had no clue what they were but it was an easy costume to make and we got to wear puffy jackets to keep warm haha.
