I had an excuse to make a Halloween costume this year and happily took advantage of the opportunity by making a Totoro costume for the occasion.
The lecture series I co-chair helped out with another clubs costume contest yesterday on our campus. To support the event (that’s the only reason, I’m sure) I brainstormed costume ideas with my students and then used my efforts to encourage student participation (and it totally worked – two students walked away with prize money even!).
I’ve created a tutorial for the t-shirt on Snapguide – I also created a cute headband. It was so much fun. I got asked to take a billion photos with students (for proof that their teacher dressed up, I’m sure – that, or blackmail) and I totally plan on doing it again next year just because it was a blast.
