BlogDH Panel: #FlashbackFriday, Halloween 2k14 edition

Last year, Blog rejoiced when Halloween fell on #ThrowbackThursday. This year, we are not so fortunate: Halloween coincides with #FlashbackFriday, a watered down pseudo-version of #TBT, the classic and culturally accepted weekly Instagram holiday. We could not, however, resist getting involved in the most overkill social media-induced nostalgia trip of the year just because of the pesky Gregorian calendar…so, we have curated a BlogPanel of simpler days when Halloween wasn’t about muploading from the Whiskey Republic and out-punning your frenemies. Happy #FlashbackFriday!

An anecdote from Albie Brown: “the principal yelled at me for 5 minutes until she finally believed that it was really just an innocent 7 foot papier-mâché nose costume.” It appears that Albie is the heir apparent to RISD’s mascot, Scrotie.

To clarify, Tucker Iverson is the one on the left. He’s the robot with the blue nipples gold pipe-cleaner antennae. Tucker proudly notes that he “made it myself. It’s whatever.”
