Scores of creative costumes were on display at Ripley’s Believe It or Not in Times Square on October 27 as SVA students gathered for the annual Visual Arts Student Association (VASA) Halloween Party. DJ Ross Rosco provided an eclectic soundtrack for the colorful cast of characters, which included everything from zombies, mythical creatures and the Geico Gecko, to lookalikes of Beyonce, Charlie Chaplin, and Amy Winehouse. But the award for best costume went to current BFA Advertising and Graphic Design Department student Julius Reyes, whose “Hey Arnold” getup earned him a brand new MacBook Pro and bragging rights for the next year. Second place went to current BFA Film, Video and Animation Department student Josh Wein for “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” followed by current BFA Cartooning student Kendra Wells for her “Unicorn” costume.
