Harkening back to Halloween

Mac loves dressing up so much it took a whole week (and then some) to celebrate the holiday of costumes

At McCallum, Halloween isn’t a day, it’s a weeklong state of mind. From the Blue Brigade showing up at Nelson Field the Friday before Halloween in full costumes, to the Spanish students who marched in the Dia de los Muertos parade in dowtown Austin on Saturday, to the baseball team that played a full game in Halloween gear the day before Oct. 31, Mac definitely showed its penchant for pretending to be someone or something else. In the precise middle of a Homecoming Week, filled of dress-up days, there was Halloween Wednesday itself when Mac nation didn’t just come dressed to impress, it held not one but two costume contests to decide once and for all who the best dressed costumed Knights were. In this week’s #TuesdayTop10, we take you back to the spooky week that was Halloween at Mac. Maniacal laugh. Maniacal laugh.

    I really liked this issue! A lot of these images I hadn’t seen before, specifically the costume contest ones, and it was fun to see them! It also gave people a chance who might have missed these events to “experience” them! Very well done. 🙂

    I liked seeing all the best MAC costumes, and you can tell that we’re at an arts high school. The zombie makeup was very realistic and the dia de los muertos parade art was well done.
