Ghoulish Halloween Costumes on Parade at DCAD

Still struggling with Halloween costume ideas? The Flyers’ new Marty-Feldman-eyed mascot isn’t cutting it for you?Procrastinators take heart! If you’re looking for creative garb for this spooky holiday, our friends at Delaware College of Art & Design (DCAD) are here to help.

They hosted their annual Halloween costume parade yesterday, showing off some fantastic ideas. From Joan Crawford as “Mommy Dearest” to Judge Judy and Marty McFly, staff and students designed their own lurid, funny and novel disguises.

And what is Halloween without a costume contest?

Best individual costume: Runway Zombi
2nd place: Marty McFly (Back to the Future) on a hoverboard
3rd place: The Bloody Nurse
Best Group:  Four women dressed up as UD Frat Boys (with names like Tyler, Chad, Matty) 

This Fri., Nov. 2, DCAD kicks off a special celebration in conjunction with their current exhibition “Henry Bermudez in Black and White.” The Philadelphia-based artist will give a free artist’s talk from 3:30 to 4:30 pm and a two-hour workshop called “The Art of Paper Cutting,” which costs $20 per person and begins at 5 p.m.
