Halloweek flew by faster than Marnie and her grandma on a high-powered broom (see below). It was a long four days, but a sick four days — literally “sick,” as my voice was shot by the end of night one. Yet, it was without a doubt the most fun I’ve had at Brown thus far. As we say goodbye to October and all of its quiet (and not-so-quiet) graces — perfect weather, hellish midterms, a Red Sox win, an excuse to go out four nights in a row, campus protests, and another Fox News shoutout — I wanted to reflect upon what I learned over the past week. Halloweek, you were a hella-week, for sure. Here are 18 things I learned from my first Halloweek:
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. In true Twelve Angry Men fashion, the editors of BlogDH engaged in a heated debate over your submissions before reaching a final consensus. Without further ado, the MVP of Halloween.
Name: Emily W. ’14.5
Descriptions from left to right, top to bottom: Ms. Frizzle from The Magic School Bus; Squealer the pig, one of the original nine Beanie Babies; Angelica Pickles (and her doll Cynthia) from The Rugrats; Regina George and the Plastics (left to right: Julia S., ’14, Emily W. ’14.5, Vivianne A., ’14); Wanda and Cosmo (Conor M., Skidmore ’14) from The Fairly Odd Parents.
Congratulations, Emily! As promised, her photos will be featured in every post that we put up today. Check out the runners-up after the jump.
This Halloweek, I decided to re-watch one of our generation’s all-time favorite Disney Channel Original Movies: Halloweentown. I remembered very little about the actual plot or characters in this movie, but I did remember loving it and believing it to be one of the few films in history with sequels actually worth watching. However, as I sat down to re-watch the film, I was overcome with a deep sense of dread that, like so many of my favorite childhood things before it, revisitation years later would lead me to the recognition that the movie was, in fact, not as cool as I once thought (I’m looking at you, ponchos).
Fortunately, my fears were 100% misplaced. Halloweentown was, and remains, one of the greatest Halloween movies of all time. Sure the plot made little to no sense, but would you really want your Disney Channel Original Movie any other way? For those who don’t remember, check out a brief plot summary after the jump.

Monica and I have seen a bunch of wonderful Halloween costumes at parties recently, and we wanted to talk about how they inspire us. And really, how else would they inspire us besides inspiring us sexually? Halloween is the perfect time to get your sexy on, and there is no better time for role-play. We decided to take the opportunity to throw out a few suggestions for sex positions and acts that we think go well with the sentiment of several popular Halloween getups.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 contest. If you win, your costume photo will be featured in every single one of our posts on Monday, November 4. A star will be born.
In the next two days, there will be two Halloween-themed events of interest to people who enjoy free things in Faunce. Tonight from 6-8:30 pm, the Campus Center will host the Great Pumpkin Hunt. The event will feature 100 small pumpkins hidden throughout Faunce, each marked with a number that corresponds to a prize. Among those will be a Great Pumpkin, whose finder will win a free iPad Mini.
Tomorrow from 12-2 pm, the Curricular Resource Center will host a Halloween party in room 228 (Faunce 2nd floor), with free apple cider and hot chocolate. The party will feature a raffle, open to anyone in costume, offering prizes that include advice dates with women on the CRC student staff. Stop by Faunce today and tomorrow to take part in the festivities.
In other words, this is #whatshouldntwecallme, Halloween edition.
Brunonia, you have spoken: Halloweekend will, in fact, be the weekend after Halloween… which means that this week is officially Halloweek! If you haven’t begun to do so already, you’re probably planning your costumes for the coming days.
Why, you may ask? For the past two years, you’ve showed us your creativity, your style, and your ability to coordinate group costumes despite your high levels of inebriation. That said, we want to see the most insane costume ideas you can think up. If your costume is impressive enough, it may just end up right here on BlogDH.
That’s right, dear readers. We’re back at it again with our third annual Halloweek costume contest. The premise is much like any other Halloween costume contest with a slight twist: have a friend take a picture of you in costume within the next week and submit it along with your first name, first letter of your last name, class year and a brief description of your costume to email@example.com. We’ll announce the winner of the contest on the morning of Monday, November 4, and — wait for it — every post on Monday November 4 will use your costume photo as its featured picture. In addition, we’ll post our favorite runners-up on Blog and on our Facebook page. So, even when you’re stuck in classes on that gloomy, un-fulfilling Monday and are feeling depressed in the wake of the post-Halloween comedown, you’ll still be able to check BlogDH and feel that Halloween spirit.
Creativity will be the main standard we’ll use, but you’ll definitely get extra points for Brown relevance and group costuming. We’ll be accepting submissions until 5 p.m. on Monday, November 3. Happy Halloweek, and we look forward to seeing your submissions!

Tonight, hundreds of scantily clad college students will converge on a small waterfront bar. I could use any amount of witticisms to describe this monumental moment, but you know what they say: a picture is worth a thousand words — but a GIF is worth a million. Will the sequence below roughly describe your night? One can only hope.
