As a sober Lindsey Lohan once said in the movie "Mean Girls," "Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress up like a total slut, and no other girls can say anything about it."

In college, Halloween is the time of the year when everyone can play someone they're not and get away with it. Costumes, however, can rack up a lot of money, and the whole idea of originality fades.

But this year, all you really need already exists in household items and some imagination. If all else fails, just put on all your gym clothes and winter coats at the same time, and say you're channeling your inner Gaga.

The Group Costume

Sometimes it's hard to coordinate with so many people, but Halloween is just more fun when you're dressing up with friends.

If you want to annoy people, run around Halloween night dressed up as the Angry Birds characters. This can be achieved by wearing masks depicting the different characters and taping feather tails to your shorts.

For your eclectic group of friends, just go as the cast of "Modern Family." Surely we all channel one person from the cast.

For the group of girls who want to dress up as the Kardashians: simply put pillows in your jeans and make sure your black wig reaches it.

Cross-dress

This is the time of the year when cross-dressing will help you pick up whomever you want to. This is very easy to do, as you can just ask to borrow clothes from your neighbors who live downstairs. Use it as an excuse to come in.

Ladies should dress up as frat guys. Get out the Sperry shoes, khaki shorts, button-down shirts and don't forget a red Solo cup. Guys can dress up like girls by wearing bows in their hair, a Vera Bradley backpack and a sundress (if you want to take it to an extreme). Don't forget to throw up those sorority letters.

Social Media

Be Facebook or Twitter. Take a display poster, draw a profile page and wear it throughout the night. Make sure you have people write on your "wall" with a Sharpie.

If you want to be Twitter, just do the same as Facebook, but make sure you tweet every time you see something that seems tweet-worthy. You can also use a white board to create and erase tweets throughout the night. Don't forget a hash tag!

Ladies create their own TFM by sporting Sperry shoes, a red Solo cup, a button-down and khaki shorts.

Getting a group together this Halloween? Coordinate with your costumes by dressing up as the Kardashians. Based on your personalities, choose who gets to be Kourtney, Khloe and Kim. Don't forget to put a pillow in your pants to create those famous backsides.
