1. Story Behind the Costume: This isn’t even me; it’s my sister.  I asked my mom for a photo of me in costume as a child, and this was what I received with a note stating, “Best I can do on short notice.”  This is also translated as, “I have no idea which child wanted this, but I don’t have pictures of the second one anyway”. Thanks, Mom!

2. Favorite Candy: Cheese

3. Most Afraid of: Kayaking – strange fear, I know, but the thought of being crammed in a floating banana terrifies me.

4. Favorite Halloween Movie: It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown


Juan Vallejo, Graphic Design

Hayley Lyons, Creative Writing

1. Story Behind the Costume: I was a freshman in college. While all of the other girls were dressed in scantily clad costumes, I wore a full-bodied lion costume and was super comfortable. I have no idea who the guy on the left is. He was one of many who asked to “take a picture with the lion.” I felt like one of those characters at Disney, and, as you can tell by my face, I was really into it!

2. Favorite Candy: Anything sour and gummy

3. Most Afraid of: Ghosts

4. Favorite Halloween Movie: Hocus Pocus
