Top 10 Best College Theme Party Ideas

Costume and theme parties are a huge part of college life. After all, college is one of the few times in life where you can get away with dressing in crazy costumes, and convincing your friends to do the same, on a regular basis. I mean, how often do your parents talk about going to an ABC party?

If you think you’re had/been to every kind of themed costume party there is, think again. Below, I’ve listed the top ten best college dress-up party themes:
10. Tight and Bright

This one is a lot of fun and gives you a chance to be creative with clothes you have, or borrow from friends to create a look that’s cute and fun.

The rules: any article of clothing you wear has to be both brightly colored and skin tight. This one is especially funny for guys, who aren’t as used to wearing tight clothing, and usually come up with some funny outfits.

9. Snowpants or No Pants

Don’t worry: this doesn’t have to be as lewd as it sounds. Guests have the option of wearing snowpants to the party, or “no pants.” But, this doesn’t mean you have to show up in your undies if you don’t have snow pants to wear; it’s another chance to get creative. Wear a skirt – after all, a skirt isn’t pants.
8. Masquerade

If you’re a Gossip Girl fan, I’m sure you’ve fallen for the romance and mystery of a classic masquerade party. The best part is, you only have to buy a mask to come to this party, and the rest of your outfit can be whatever you like. Usually, the theme is more formal, but you can shake things up with a “Halloween Mask-erade”, and have everyone don black, with a scary or silly Halloween mask on top, instead of the fancy feathered variety.

7. Ugly Sweater

This is one is perfectly timed for this holiday season, super easy, and really fun. Almost everybody has some kind of ugly Christmas or holiday sweater – you know, the kind your grandma knits you with a large, lop-sided Rudolph on the front?

Have everyone wear their hokiest sweater and then vote for who has the ugliest sweater! It’s a fun take on a holiday party that’s perfect for the college scene. For more, see our tips on what to wear to an ugly sweater party!

6. Black Light

This is a fun party idea, especially if you’re a creative type. Swap out your regular light bulbs for black light bulbs (available at any hardware store) and have all the guests arrive in plain white tee shirts that they don’t mind getting ruined. The fun part comes with highlighters, which you can use to write and draw on each other’s shirts. When the black lights are switched on, the writing will glow, and you can check out everyone else’s artwork.

5. ABC (Anything But Clothes)

Again, don’t freak out at the name of this party. It doesn’t mean everyone shows up in the buff. Instead, you have to fashion an outfit out of materials other than clothing. I’ve seen girls use Monopoly money, maps, garbage bags, and flags to make really cute dresses and outfits.

ABC parties are fun, cheap, and creative, and can lead to some really fun Facebook photos. This is another theme party where a best outfit contest can add some extra incentive to be really creative.

4. Rubik’s Cube

This party theme starts out simple, but quickly gets out of control. Everyone shows up wearing one item of clothing for each color on the Rubik’s cube (white, red, blue, orange, green, and yellow). Then, once you get to the party, you swap clothing items with other guests until you can create an outfit of one solid color. Tip: accessories like gloves and hats make this process a lot easier.

3. High School Stereotype

Were you a geek in high school? A jock? A cheerleader? A band kid? Well, dig out that old uniform and show up at this party as a high school stereotype of yourself.

If you didn’t fit into a box so easily (and, let’s face it, most of us didn’t) you can either pick an identity, or dig out some embarrassing threads you used to think were cool, back in your grade nine days.

2. Alphabet

Pick a letter of the alphabet (your initial? your school’s name?) and have everyone wear a costume that starts with that letter. For example, the letter N could have people showing up as nurses or ninjas. It’s a challenge to come up with something unique, and a lot of fun to see what other people come up with.

1. Toga

Okay, this isn’t exactly a new idea… In fact, it’s probably the oldest college costume party idea in the book. But still, would you really want to go through four years of college without attending at least one toga party?

If you still haven’t done it, now’s the time! The best part: it’s as cheap as pulling the sheet off of your bed. Check out this site to learn how to tie it properly, and let the memory-making begin.

A Poem for A Wind Love

By the wind gone, this star is flying
By the magic comes, it comes dark
When see outside, i never thought i’m crying
You come to me and give me those spark

That poem created by me when i was falling in love with a guy. I know i shouldnt like him or even love him but love is a magic, like rats in the hole. It comes and shocks us!
Then i realized, there is something in him that doesnt suit on me. Maybe our ego or our path. He cant interest and listen to me when i tell a story.

There isnt any chemistry between us. We’re just friends and that’s it. I will travel soon with him as friends.

People come and go, i won’t let you go
People change, i have leave you
I open my eyes, i see you go
Day by day, i stand without you

Pretty Little Breaker

Actually right now i have to go to somewhere and meet with my best friend. We actually want to meet, share stuffs, and having fun together.
But since my mother sicks, she asked me to cancel it in that time.
I have just canceled it and now i feel so bad with her.
I never do this with my best friend and i do not want to!
She just texted me and said, “we can meet in another time but your mom’s health is the most important.” , thanks i have a understandable best friend.
I do not wanna blame my mom, it’s just i need a friend to tell about the “it’s another boy” story.

Ah, i just texted my friend (he is the person who my crush told bout his thought that i like him) and i asked bout his expression when he told him bout his thought.
What did he answered?! i cant explain it well but he smiled when i joked him around.

The End of Story. That’s Ambigu.

Over-riched Woman called Another Beauty

Hey guys,
i just watched a movie and what i saw is like a confession of ourselves.
for long time sometimes we don’t dare to meet with some items.
i called it Another Beauty’s Disease. well, this time i am gonna talk about with while some people just try to decline it and some people break the door and try to turning table.
first off all, what is the mean behind “Another Beauty” ? It is simply called for woman or man that have a problem with numbers.
dress size, shoes size, underwear sized, even food porsition’s size. we have bigger body than anyone else.
the funny thing is some people want to be like us. trust me, we dont want it. we want small just like you.
trying so hard from time to time until the mountain of exhausted arrived and we just say ENOUGH.
but still we always try so hard to make this gone. our fat, or name big in the middle of our name that invisible but most people can read that.

Now, i am not gonna tell y’all bout how to lose weight from urs cause i know how many people already read, write, and watch it. I am gonna tell y’all about how to try to feel bless (i know sometimes that’s prettty hard) and to gain another beauty from our “over-riched”. so that, nobody gonna hurts or be ashame but we’ll find our beauty from the smallest until the biggest which is our sized !
🙂 Actually being fat or pluz sized are not always bad but yeah, i admit it that in some occasion u’ll feel confused, lost, and not confidence at all. Ah, especially when you go to the mall or beauty salon or gala party or another party party and you’ll see and meet a lots of pretty, thin, small, beautiful that are really so suit with everything that actually you wanna wear. the think about why this is so unfair is come up and u just walk out to the door and grab a taxi or u dont wanna get to close with her. This is like streotype, yeah. Just some people have 2 types.
1. They who dont know how to act or dressed or feel about what they have
2. They who know and sure about everything but maybe their everything cant be right in everytime

which one are you?
well honestly, i am the number 1 . i mean i dont know how to dressed when there is a great party come out when there’re a lots of hot chicks and i am the ugly duck.
really …
don’t be it.

what i am trying to say is when you read this beginner article and start to say or think “maybe she’s right”, i would like to hug you and say thank you lol. at least try to look at in the mirror and say that i am not bad or even i am good. If you say with bad or negative things, you have to end it with remedy or make up word. for example, “No way, too much acnes! I should buy acne balm and use it tomorrow.” or “This stomach is getting bigger, ugh! Okay try to reduce rice or sweets.”
try little and small statement that u can actually do it in real life not in your dream. will you? sure!

DIY Fuzzy Tote (via Runway

DIY Fuzzy Tote This has quickly become my favorite DIY project. I made it and planned my whole outfit around it the next day. Yes, that means that I broke out the fur in August. And yes, some find this seasonally offensive. My Boss: "You shouldn't wear fur!!!!" Me: "Don't worry, it's faux." My Boss: "I don't care if it's real or faux. I care that it's still summertime." This fuzzy friend might hibernate in my closet until the temperature drops, but its a great … Read More
