It’s Halloween time in New York, and that means that it’s time for the annual IFA costume party, held in the Duke house across the street from the Conservation Center.
Before the party, the upperclassmen hosted a pumpkin-carving session–the products of which were displayed at the party that night.
There were many, many interesting costumes to behold, and some students had spend months designing theirs! Amongst my favorites were “Stonehenge” and classmate Eve Mayberger’s creative interpretation of Botticelli’s Birth of Venus.
I used my newly learned sewing skills to make a Yayoi Kusama costume with polka-dotted fabric and a bright-red wig!
The dancing was fun; the candy corn was plentiful; and we all look forward to planning next year’s costumes!
