While everyone else dresses as cats and clowns, you’ll get major creativity points for thinking outside the box this Halloween. Inspired by some of the year’s biggest blockbusters, these simple costumes can be pulled together from whatever you have in your — or your friend’s — closet and made even better with a quick trip to CVS or a nearby Halloween store.

Syracuse Fall Fashion Week kicked off Halloween early with its annual Syracuse Snarl fashion show.

Neon lights flashed around a runway at the top of the curved staircase at the Landmark Theater on Thursday, Oct. 13. The Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty, Aladdin, and… Donald Trump? Those were just some of the looks that strutted down at this year’s Syracuse Snarl fashion show.

Hosted by Syracuse Fall Fashion Week, the theme was “fractured fairytales.”

Photo essay: Senior Drew Osumi explores the motivations and inspiration for students' Halloween attire.

I’ve noticed at Syracuse University that there are many people who tend to remain exclusive to a set of friends. They might do this because they feel that it is safer or other people aren’t as cool as their current friends.

As a photographer, I’ve been able to travel around and photograph different events on campus, and I find it incredibly fascinating to see the similarities between all groups of people.

The annual Halloween event pairs local children with SU student "bigs" for Halloween-centered activities.

On the afternoon of Halloween eve, several school buses pulled up to Walnut Park for the annual Greek or Treat. They released local school children, some dressed as tigers or their favorite character from Frozen. They were eager to meet up with their “bigs” and begin their Halloweekend festivities.

From the Alpha to the Courageous Lion, our reporter explains four distinctly different personalities for Halloween thrillseekers.

During my visit to Frightmare Farms, I came to the realization that there are four types of haunted house visitors and a natural order in which they fall. This order starts with Alpha, followed by the Jokester, the Scaredy Cat and the Courageous Lion.

For those who like their horror films in small bites, or love to binge watch, we suggest classic anthology horror movies to watch this Halloween.

Everyone celebrates Halloween differently. But, whether you’re passing out candy to trick-or-treaters or dancing away your responsibilities in a sexy Donald Trump costume, it’s likely that you’ll find yourself watching a scary movie at least once this weekend — either in its entirety with a group of friends, or on cable in between rings of the doorbell. No matter your viewing habits, might I suggest a horror anthology film this year?
