A Very Brief Summary of Halloween Costumes

So last week, we made a call for student Halloween costumes. There are roughly 2,900 students attending Wes, and we received a total of SEVEN costume submissions—that’s 0.2% of the student body. That kind of turnout is only comparable to that of our athletic events (except for baseball–we have the highest attendance in all of D3!).

Without further ado, a non-representative sample of people who are clearly more enthusiastic about their costumes than you were about yours:

Costume: Bob and Linda Belcher
LR ’16 came over dressed as Linda Belcher. I didn’t have a costume. She said, “You could be Bob.” 15 minutes later, we had this. DIY like a boss.” —  GR ’16
