There was a wide turn out at this year’s Halloween Party hosted on Oct. 31 by Student Activities. Featured this year had been a pumpkin decorating contest, a cookie decorating contest, a mummy wrapping game, as well as a photo booth and sweet treats for everyone who attended! Best of all, Student Activities hosted their annual costume contest with many excited students, almost 28 contestants, in fact.
As spooky music such as Devil Went Down to Georgia and the Twilight Zone theme song played loudly throughout Reid Cafe, the students socialized and admired each other’s costumes and Halloween spirit, especially having a lot of fun partaking in the very popular photo booth with their friends and many different interesting and creative props provided by the photobooth workers. As many rounds of the mummy wrapping contest went on, students in pairs laughed in joy as they wrapped each other in toilet paper before being judged by their peers.
This year’s winners for the costume contest included Derrick Hall, who won third place as a Graduate, Mikinna Hall, Janet Andrews, and Sydney Fowler, who won second place as the very comedic three blind mice, and a tie between Lucas Bobinski who dressed as Uncle Sam, and Cassandra Shipley dressed as the infamous Harley Quinn. Also featured in the contest were students dressed as Cinderella, Batman, Spiderman, Minnie Mouse, Lilo and Stitch, a Steampunk Inspired outfit, and many other creative and fun characters! All the contestants had the chance to walk on the stage in character and explain who they were and who they were portraying, some acting out specific scenarios or saying popular phrases, and even one Minnie Mouse who used the proper Minnie Mouse voice.
With any hope, Student Activities will continue to create many more spooky and fun Halloween parties for Lewis and Clark students to come, and inspire more Lewis and Clark students to participate in costume contests in the future.
