Thanks to all who submitted photos of their costumes to our third annual costume contest. We received an overwhelming number of submissions this year, and we were glad that we had the chance to bear witness to your creativity and execution, even though we probably saw you on the street/at a party/at Jo’s at some point this weekend but just don’t remember.

Can you believe it? You too can achieve this level of Brown stardom: previous costume contest winners are shown here “posing” in costume with Brown’s organ in a post about the University’s age-old Halloween tradition. Of course, this was just one of several posts in which this Ben & Jerry’s crew was featured. So when you’re pregaming tonight, instead of fishing for compliments about how great your costume is (please, you already know it’s killer), have your biddies snap a photo and send it in to blog@browndailyherald.com with your first name, first initial of your last name, class year, and a brief description of your costume to be entered in our costume contestIf you win, your costume photo will be featured in every single one of our posts on Monday, November 4.  A star will be born.
