What your Halloween costume should be based on your Cambridge college
Nothing scarier than John’s x
Spooky season is here and you’re frantically trying to sort out a costume. Never fear – your college can give you the inspo you need for you to haunt the streets of Cambridge this Halloween.
Christ’s – Zombie
Consistently topping the Tompkins Table, the spookiest thing you will see this season is a Christ’s student out of the library. Nothing scarier for them than not getting that first.
Churchill – Mad Scientist
Considering that the vast majority of the student body do STEM, this is a fitting choice for all those Churchill mathmos. The only thing more frightening is the college’s architecture. A Brutalist-style costume can always be a backup.
Clare – Vampire
There are definitely a couple down in those cellars.
Downing – Prime Ministers
10 Downing Street, Downing…get it? With constant turnover in the past few years, there are plenty of options to choose from!
Girton – Ghost
Always being ghosted by their central college friends, a ghost is a fitting choice for students of this college.
Homerton – BFG
For the friendliest college around, what better costume than the Big Friendly Giant?
King’s – Skeleton
Not only can King’s students channel their inner Phoebe Bridgers, but they can match that lovely scaffolding and look just as imposing and threatening.
Newnham – Witch
A perfect costume for all the tarot-reading and gemstone-collecting girlies.
Peterhouse – Mummy
An ancient look for the most ancient college.
Queens’ – Queen
Queens’ really has no excuse. Queen Victoria. Queen of hearts. Beyoncé. The options are endless x
St Catherine’s – Cat
St John’s – Devil
As the most (lovingly) hated college in Cambridge, John’s students should embrace their inner demon this Halloween.
Trinity – Henry the VIII
If you want to mix it up, how about one of his wives?
Hopefully, this gives you some inspiration to ensure that you (and your college) serve this Halloween.
