KSR’s Guide to DIY Halloween Costumes

Halloween is less than a week away, which means if you haven’t figured out your costume yet, you better or you’ll be that guy everyone mocks at the bar (nothing says “party pooper” like not dressing up on Halloween). Don’t feel like going as Slutty Elmo or yesterday’s version of yourself (total slacker move, BTW)? Have no fear, KSR is here to help! Here are some do-it-yourself costume ideas that will let you show off your love for the Cats and your creativity:

Nerlens Noel
Items needed:
– Homemade paper flat top
– UK jersey or shirt
– Blue shorts
Go the extra mile: Shave the UK logo in the back of your head

Coach Cal
Items needed:
– Black sweatpants
– Blue UK pullover
– Pillow strapped around your tummy
– Lots of hair gel
– Empty Orange Leaf containers (Papa John’s boxes will also do)
Conversation starters: “So I hear you poop ice cream.”
Go the extra mile: Carry around a ladder and scissors

The National Championship trophy
Be everyone’s favorite photo op!
Items Needed:
– Brown sweatsuit with a yellow cardboard NCAA emblem taped to your chest

Go the extra mile: Make your own cardboard white-on-white Bentley and carry it around with you (if you have a real white-on-white Bentley, what are you doing making your own costume?!)

Bob Wiggins
Items needed:
– Blue sweatpants, extra long
– UK national championship t-shirt, tucked into said sweatpants
– Black socks
– Brown loafers
Go the extra mile: Carry some Werther’s Originals


W.B.A. (White Boy Academy)
Items needed:

    The only thing more annoying than Matt’s nose whistle is him constantly saying, “that’s exactly right” and ryan’s seething noise he makes after he laughs for no reason.
