Cardiff SU’s Best Dressed: Halloween Edition

From spooky to saucy, Cardiff students really pulled out all the stops this year

Halloween is arguably one of the best nights a year, and with this Halloween landing on a Monday it meant that we had the majority of the week to celebrate with YOLOween starting on the Wednesday before. So we decided to go out and find Cardiff Uni’s best dressed on Wednesday so you can have some last minute inspo for tonight.

Mystery Incorporated

It’s a mystery how this gang look so good. This sexy scooby squad are just missing the main character and they’d be a complete set. We hope they didn’t split up in YOLO to look for clues, because they’d probably never find each other again.

The national flower of Wales is a daffodil, so it’s nice to see some national representation in the house. Legend also has it that if you gift someone one daffodil then it represents that bad luck may be on the horizon, so good thing there’s two of them.

Tomato Ketchup


If you were looking to get some saucy action this halloween then we hope you saw George. George was looking very dapper in his squeezable suit; all the other boys better ketchup to his style.

We like to imagine that George came as part of a group costume so if his friends were missing he could look into the crowd and find some mustard and mayo bopping about, ready to be reunited.

Arr there any cuter costumes for a friendship group to do? It’s easy to put together, but a classic for a reason.  The fishnets also add a cute dimension we’ve not seen before.



“You’ve got a friend in me”, we hope you do because it looks like Buzz and Mr Potato head sat this YOLO out. Luke made up for it though as there are some cowgirls behind him so maybe it isn’t all bad after all.

The sparkly cowboy hat is also such a vibe and we will be calling the animators of Toy Story asap to yassify the films.
