On November 1st, the New Haven students will have a choice of whether or not they would like to participate in the Halloween costume contest. This event has been around for about 17 years and many students take part in this activity. They can dress up as a group or individually. There will be various prizes, and certain teachers will be chosen to judge these creative costumes.
Some students may choose not to dress up, but there is a big percentage of people that will accept this challenge. While people are still deciding on their official costumes, a few students already know what they would like to be.
Dorian McCarty, freshman, says, “I am going to dress up as an anime character from one of my favorite animes. Her name is Erza. The costume will have handmade armor-- hopefully it will be done in time.”
Senior Emily Knoppe reports that she will dress up as “either a witch or a fairy princess.”
Britany Willimann, senior, states that she will masquerade as a “medieval huntress.”
Abygail Grater, senior, says, “I would like to try and get a group together and create a scene from ‘Beetlejuice’.”
Senior Kimmy McDowell announces that she would like to be a “spider witch.”
Junior Desiree Strehlau says she would like to be ”Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy.”
Some people might not like to dress up for this contest, but there are a few people that like Halloween for other various reasons.
Sophomore Lydia Otten states, “I like Halloween because of the candy!”
Junior Diana Ribera, instead of going out, she says, “I don't think I'll be dressing up since I'm going to stay home with my brothers and sisters watching scary movies. We are going to pig out on candy.”
Many people want to participate but are indecisive about their costumes. They have roughly a month to decide on a costume of their choice, whether it is part of a group or by themselves. Let the competition begin!
