Simply superior staff ‘stumes

Halloween is an exciting time for small children around the world, and the excitement for the day of make-believe only grows with time. Although they won’t be trick-or-treating this year, our Northwood staff plans to dress up in costumes beyond the wildest imaginations of students. 

Katie Cullen: Jellyfish

“I would love to make my own costume this year that looks like a jellyfish where I have a sombrero with the legs coming down from it. I have yet to implement this, however.”

Zane Pang: The Little Lad (Berries and Cream)

“It was really popular when I was growing up—the Starburst berries and cream ad. When I saw that it was trending on Youtube and TikTok, I was like ‘I remember this guy,’ and now I’m going to be him.” 

Allison Singer: Snow White’s Dwarf 

“The counseling department always does a group costume. This year, we have these caps and we all have a beard—Ms. Ostovarpour is going as Snow White and I’m not sure where she is on her costume; it may be a representation rather than an exact likeness to the character.” 

Sandy Banks: Black Cat

“Cat ears are purrr-ty.” 

Sara Katlen: Pumpkin Extravaganza 

“It’s an orange dress with little black pumpkins, and then I have black tights with orange pumpkins. I have pumpkin earrings, so I guess I’ll just be pumpkin for Halloween. I’ll be joined by Kitty Clooney.”

Brandon Emery: David Rose (Schitt’s Creek)

“I ordered my costume yesterday. It’s from the episode of ‘Schitt’s Creek’ where he wears his lightning bolt sweater with the white sunglasses. I might have to dye my hair.”
