The results are in! Blog is very proud to announce the winners of the 2017 Halloweek Costume Contest. Amidst a Halloween dominated by Wonder Woman, Stranger Things and the ever-present sexy cat, these costumes stood out to us for their effort,
originality and Brown-relevance (anyone can be a lifeguard, but it takes a Brown University student to be LampBear).
Our Overall Winner:
Allison R. ’18, Haley C. ’18, Alyssa B. ’18, Zoe G. ’18, Emilia F. ’18 and Conor O’B. ’18, as Senior Washed Up Grandparents. The makeup skills here fooled a few Bloggers themselves this weekend! We can only hope that we look this good in ~60 years.
Our Runner Up:
Katie B. ’19, Alec B. ’19, Kathryn S. ’19, Mira R. ’19, Elizabeth C. ’19 and Meghan M. ’19 as a six-pack of everyone’s favorite (non-alcoholic) bougie beverage.
And now, for our superlatives:
Best topical pun:
Sarah Campbell T. ’19, Olivia P. ’19 and Melanie A. ’19 as Mourning Males. This one hit us where it hurts. RIP Morning Mail.
Best high school TV throwback:
Odemi P. ’18 and Ade O. ’18 as Blair Waldorf and Serena Van der Woodsen from Gossip Girl. Name a more iconic duo… we’ll wait. XOXO.
Best BDSM reference:
Monica M. ’18, Maxwell K. ’20 and Allie Doyle ’18 as the Distracted Girlfriend Meme.
A side-by-side comparison for those of you who don’t frequent the Brown Dank Stash of Memes.
Best Dated Political Scandal:
Ben B. ’20 and Sarah C. ‘19 as the Ghost of Richard Nixon and the Sexy Watergate Hotel. They want to tell you that Nixon was a bad man, the Watergate is a good hotel, and the missing tape was a cassette of The Smiths’ singles all along!
