Szlaga ‘22: With Halloween coming around very quickly, students start the costume lookout now rather than later. Halloween brings lots of fun to the community with house decorations, trick-or-treating, and getting dressed up in a costume. Going all out with a costume makes Halloween that much more special. Costumes range from all types of genres, like gruesome, funny, and cute. Even students in a relationship create ideas that involve each other together. With Halloween on a Sunday this year, Romeo High School allows students to dress up in their costumes some time the week before.
Ashley Myers ‘22, a student doing a costume with her significant other, seemed excited for Halloween this year. “Me and my boyfriend are going to be Sharkboy and Lavagirl from the Disney movie The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl. This costume is super unique, I can’t wait to put all the pieces together. I am buying a pink wig and wearing long pink boots. I didn’t figure out the rest but I am already super happy about it,” Myers said.
During the weekend of Halloween, a lot of seniors go to see their older friends at college. Without seeing them for a while, it becomes very heartwarming to see them. Carlyn Shango ‘22 loves to participate in Halloween. “I am going to be a Bratz doll for Halloween. It involves a lot of makeup which I am super happy to do. Most likely I will be going up to Michigan State University with my sister and friends. Not everything is for sure yet, but I am so pumped,” Shango said.
Ella Schultz ‘22 also thinks about going to Michigan State University to see her friends. “I am planning on being Barbie this year for Halloween. I have very blonde hair so, I think it will be perfect for me. I am so excited to see all of my friends and see what they have been up to,” Schultz said.
Halloween creates a lot of fun for students and adults of all ages. Romeo teachers also dress up at school for the holiday. Excitement is truly in the air and everyone can’t wait to see what kids are going to wear this Halloween.
