How is it that Spooky Season is upon us??? Wasn’t it just April????
Just like every fucking other thing in our lives, Halloween is going to look a bit different this year. Gone is the opportunity to wear lingerie and call it a costume while walking around in sub-thirty degree weather, and chasing a shot down with fun sized candy bars loses a bit of its luster when you can only do it alone in your dorm.
Wesleying to the rescue! As we have in years past, we’re giving you the opportunity to showcase your Halloween lewks! Submit a picture of your costume here, and then we’ll feature you in a post later in the week. Bonus points if your costume is… topical to the current situation, or if you find a clever way to incorporate your mask. Socially distant/COVID-podded costumes also welcome!

Alright, ya’ll. It’s the day that we all look forward to. It’s the end of Spooptober, the start of Christmas, because we can’t capitalize off of Thanksgiving, unless it’s Black Friday.
It’s Halloween. And did ya’ll impress. We asked (yesterday) for your costumes, and
I think my eyes are still burning I’m very impressed by the creativity of the student body.
Check out the costumes after the jump!
We want your spoo-ky/scar-y/sexy/stylish costumes!
Email us (staff[at]wesleying[dot]org) your pictures from Halloweekend/Halloween with the subject “Costume Write In” and your name and class year in the body (also any fun info/captions for your picture), and we’ll feature you on the blog! Group costumes and bad puns encouraged!

We hope that everyone had a great Halloweekend (or, if you’re like me and didn’t realize that Halloween is a 3-4 night affair, we hope you had a great Halloween)!
Last week, we made a write-in for Halloween costumes. We received 23 costumes—up from last year’s turnout of only 7! Here’s a (moderately-sized) handful of costumes that people sent in to Wesleying that show off the spooky, creative, and downright weird Wesleyan spirit:
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, not Christmas… this is Halloween!
While we all know that Halloween is actually just an excuse to buy a shit ton of candy to eat alone in your room and not be judged by the clerk at Wesshop/Rite Aid, some people really get into the holiday spirit with costumes!
Are you preparing for election season by mimicking your favorite (or least favorite) candidate? Channeling your inner Mean Girl with a sexy animal costume? Playing it old-school and going as a bed sheet ghost? Any Michael Roth impersonators?
Whatever you’re planning (or if you haven’t planned at all and are currently scrounging through your closet trying to find something remotely festive), we want to hear from you! Show off your creative, spooky, or just plain weird side—we want to see it all!**
SHARE YOUR COSTUME HERE.
**within reason; we’re not soliciting nudes here
Halloween’s coming around this weekend (in like, three days) and everyone’s gearing up for a good time.
Whether you’ve got your superhero costume all set, or you’re just going as a disgruntled/reclusive college student, we want to hear from you.
Have you been piecing together your costume for the past couple weeks? Did you just order it on Amazon Prime yesterday? Are you going as sexy ebola this year? Let us know. Show off your spooky style! your eerie ensemble! your ghostly garb! It’s your time to shine.
C’mon, where my witches at?
SHARE YOUR COSTUME HERE.
If you’re still confused about when Halloweekend happened, that’s probably because it happened approximately three times: once last weekend, once the previous weekend, and again during that hurricane that seems to have caused serious damage everywhere but Middletown. Throughout all the madness, we collected Halloween costume photos from you, occasionally offering prizes in return. (JK, we don’t actually have a Michael Roth blow-up doll.) Here are the best of the bunch. (JK, it’s all the ones we received.)
Some of the costumes were literary. Some of them included video game references I don’t understand (shout-out to Kristen Salustro ’13 for making the costume). There was one Wes Anderson character, one post-it monster, one pair of dudes carrying a boombox and dancing to “Gangham Style” everywhere they went. And, as always, there was one Sam Korda ’13.
Vote for your favorite in the comments section. I’m giving honorable 0ff-campus mention to occasional Canadian television star Mytheos Holt ’10 for his ingeniously characteristic Bane Capitol outfit.
