What you need is some hard core party inspiration with these ultimate party themes.
You might not have played superheroes since grade school, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a little Marvel-ous fun. Everyone dresses up like their favorite superhero. Need inspiration? Head to the comic book store for costume ideas and plan on drinking plenty to erase some of the tight spandex clad silhouettes of your friends from your mind. Here is a cheat sheet of costume ideas.
Throwback, Way Back
A throwback party might be a bit predictable, but how about going further back than the 80s or hippie era? Think gangsters and flappers, speakeasies and an era of class and sass. Turn your party place into an underground bar that serves prohibition era drinks.
Need a low budget option for a party to remember? Gather a group of friends and head to the thrift store. The mission: find the most outrageous, hilarious, beautiful or epic outfit imaginable. Have everyone wear their creations and serve tin can budget beer. Another option: have everyone draw a name and then pick out a thrift store outfit for that person to wear.
Who said nerds and geeks don’t have fun? Blow that myth right out of the chess club waters and host a geek themed party. For geeky good times, follow these instructions.
A simple classic theme that can easily take on a modern, hot twist. Choose your favorite current or retro movie or television show, and have everyone dress up like the characters, recreate the set and play drinking games that involve pertinent trivia.
You know those awkward first date conversations when someone asks, so if you were an animal what you be? Bypass the formalities and invite everyone to dress up as their spirit animal. Try matchmaking based on animal compatibility.
Anything but Clothes
This isn’t quite as risqué as it sounds, however it can be. The goal is to have everyone arrive completely dressed but not wearing any clothes at all. Here are some anything-but-clothes costume ideas.
Food Fight Party
If you are in the mood for something messy that encourages your guests to come scantily clad or eventually end up that way, try throwing a food fight party. Serve lots of sticky, messy foods that can really pick up some air and distance when thrown.
Reality Show/Celebrity Scandal Movie or Television Theme
This is one of those themes that you can come up with spur of the moment. There is always something going on in the celebrity world. Reenact your favorite or most ridiculous scandal with a themed party.
Black Ties and Spies
Have fun with this more formal bash with an element of espionage and passion. Here are a few spy bash ideas.
I’m Glad I’m Not
Video Game Party
Dress up like your favorite gaming characters, have gaming stations set up and serve game inspired drinks and snacks.

Cops and Robbers
College parties are meant to make memories that will last a lifetime, unless you end up too drunk to remember anything. Choose a theme that is like no other your friends have ever been to and you will for sure leave an impression that lasts forever.
