So Halloween is kind of a big deal here. I never really got into it in undergrad, but with grad students…. watch out! Its a big contest of who can come up with the wittiest costume. So basically, who is the smartest. Its a lot of pressure, but the annual biology dept Halloween party is mega fun. We have settled on the location of the party for this year, and it just so happens that it will be at my friend’s apt which is in my own apt complex. Good for a variety of reasons. The next thing to do is to stress about what my costume will be. Many people in the dept have started this process already. Below are my past 3 costumes…. some more clever than others.
2005: Gangrene….. or Gang Green, whichever you prefer
2006: Drag queen. A girl pretending to be a boy pretending to be a girl. I have facial hair too. You just can’t see it here. Genious.
2007: Angenlina Jolie……with man and kids in tow….. and on a leash.
Here is Borat and broken down beauty queen babysitting for me. I will refrain from heavy props in my next costume for sure.
Soooooooooooo…… what to be this year!??! Leave me a comment with your suggestion! And remember, if its not at least mildly inappropriate or in bad taste, its not an option. 🙂
