BlogDailyHerald’s Second Annual Costume Contest: Results

Thanks to all who submitted photos of their costumes to our second annual costume contest. We were thrilled to get lots of great submissions, all of which were a testament to Brown students’ creativity, wit, and incredible ability to coordinate costumes and poses while being photographed. In true Twelve Angry Men fashion, the editors of BlogDH engaged in a heated debate over your submissions before reaching a final consensus.  While we all agreed on a costume idea, we were split on which group had better execution.  So, without further ado, let us present the first place winners:

Brown Buzzwords
Quinn S. ’15 as “Discourse” Quinn’s costume translated into disc-horse, which explains the frisbee around his neck and the supposedly horse mane on his back that actually makes him look like a dragon.
Victoria B. ’15 and Kyle A. ’15 as “Heteronormativity” Victoria and Kyle embodied the perfect 1950’s married couple. Obviously, the working dad coming home from work and being welcomed by his perfect wife with pearls, apron, and surely a pie just out of the oven to match.
Sara W. ’15 as “Binary” and Nora M. ’15 as “Spectrum” Sara and Nora’s outfits represent the contrasting takes on gender as a binary (male and female) and as a spectrum (self-identification).
Regan L. ’15 as “Unpacking” Regan’s costume as a suitcase covered in zippers and with a pair of socks falling out embodies the term Brown professors love to use at least twice in any one class.
Jamie M. ’15 as “Social Construct” Jamie with a shirt that says “social” and a construction hat could only be Social Construct- the larger factors that influence our identities and behaviors.

Most acceptable use of leopard print (by far):
