Halloween is one day of the year where frightening and creative costumes are worn, and trick or treating is a fun custom as well. Unique costumes are seen throughout the night. A survey was sent out to the students and staff at Bonneville High School, asking questions about halloween costumes. There are many different categories that people dress up as during this spooky holiday season. Some favorite costumes at Bonneville this year include inflatable costumes, Minions, Disney characters, Star Wars characters, Lightning McQueen, Tinkerbell, Minecraft characters, and Spongebob characters. Many of these favorite costumes are classic characters in famous movies and video games. The scariest costumes some people at Bonneville have seen are clowns, the Grim Reaper, werewolves, zombies, the Boogie Man, scary dolls, demogorgons, and Michael Myers. Along with that, the strangest costumes seen are spiders, hot dogs, frogs, Plankton, a toaster, inflatable aliens, teletubbies, inflatable chickens, Shrek, and goats. Isaac LeCheminant mentions that the strangest costume he has seen is, “A rug. An actual rug.” Aside from all these bizarre costumes, the most common costumes people have seen include M&M’s, Spiderman, ghosts, vampires, superheroes, pumpkins, nerds, firefighters, lifeguards, skeletons, cheerleaders, and witches. Some of the costumes that students and staff are thinking of wearing this year are Marilyn Monroe, butterflies, cowgirls, Winnie the Pooh, Edward ScissorHands, and Care Bears. Several of the faculty and students added that their favorite costumes as children have been Cruella deVile, dalmatian puppies, Disney Princesses, Harry Potter, ladybugs, lambs, ninjas, Peter Pan’s shadow, a pumpkin, rubix cubes, tigers, and walruses. Many of these costumes are homemade as well. Corinne Inglet talks about the costume she made from scratch, “I have made a dragon and a supervillain by getting regular clothing and doing add-ons. I also made a cardboard dragon mask too.” Along with Inglet, other people have also put together homemade costumes such as pumpkins, M&M’s, ghosts, Cinderella, unicorns, dragons, Optimus Prime, stereotypical nerds, cowboys, and Captain Jack Sparrow. Several people enjoy matching costumes with another person; some of these matching costumes include superheroes, the Heathers, Elmo and Cookie Monster, Mario and Luigi, Twilight fangirls, football players and cheerleaders, and the Chipmunks. Emiley Mortensen talks about the matching costume she has had by saying, “It was Ken and Barbie, and it was with my cousin Evan.” Various diverse costumes are worn and seen by the people at Bonneville High School. Dressing up for Halloween is a way these people can convey their ideas to the world and be themselves.
