A student’s last-minute decision to cut two eye holes in a dirty sheet and attend a Halloween party as a ‘spooky ghost’ has seen him take home the award for Dunedin’s ‘Best Halloween Costume’, as literally no-one else gave a fuck.
The unnamed student was reported as saying “I had totally forgotten about this party, actually”.
“It was about fifteen minutes away from all kicking off when I remembered the whole ‘costume’ aspect of the night. Luckily I had a bedsheet spare that I transformed into some kind of ghost, or whatever”.
Upon arriving at the party, the winner quickly found that he was the only person who bothered to attempt any kind of costume, with the other party-goers using the night as another excuse to wear less clothes than they normally would, and drink to excess.
“I mean, in some ways I feel like a bit of a fool, but hey, I’ve got this plastic trophy here that says I did the best costume in the whole of Dunedin on the night, so... yeah... silver linings and all that”.
“If I did have any complaints about the night, it’s that more people thought I was trying to cosplay as a Klansman, but that’s the downside of picking a sheet with a slightly pointy tip”.
“But hey, someone did end up giving me a Moro bar”.
