This year’s Galileo’s Halloween Costume Contest was highlighted by the administrative team who secretly dressed up as Star Wars characters followed by students and teachers walking down the runway in their costumes. To make this year’s competition more intense, ASB officers critiqued costumes based on students’ originality, theme, quality, and creativity.
Senior Victor Ye came in first place, as Ash Ketchum of the Pokemon Series. The runner ups were Senior Joanne Louie and Caitlyn Jang, as Luigi and Mario and Senior Julia Currier dressed as Daenerys Targaryen in the Game of Thrones series came in third.
First place winner, Victor Ye said, “It was my first year dressing up and I actually always wanted to be Ash Ketchum. I’m happy about the win because I got to put my Pikachu into use after I won it in eighth grade. I would ‘go on and try to catch them all’ during Halloween!”
Aside from students dressing up, teachers also dressed up in their costumes. The math department dressed up as a bunch of “Odd Numbers” as their annual tradition. Ms. Juan said, “We actually ran out of ideas and since the math department has always dressed up together because we’re so cohesive, I went online and searched for the idea.” Mr. Page also added, “We were actually procrastinating so Odd Numbers were a bit easier for us to do this year.”
To conclude the event, Spanish teacher, Ms. Laux participated and choreographed an energetic dance to have an all-out dance party at the courtyard featuring Superstition by Stevie Wonder and Watch Me by Silento. Senior Nick Trieu added, “I enjoyed watching everyone getting together and showing off their Halloween spirit. It was definitely one of the most spiritive day besides Song and Yell!”
