Last-Minute Halloween Costumes

So you’re going to a Halloween party this weekend, but don’t have a costume. You knew Halloween was this weekend and that you would need one.

Here are several costumes you can make with ordinary things you can find around your dorm room or in CVS. The Disco Ball  You need: An old dress or T-shirt, a stack of CDs and super glue.

College President Phil Hanlon as Marilyn Monroe I was very tempted to make Phil dress up as Dumbledore or Gandalf. I know, he’s the big man in charge, but it’s time to think outside the box. Phil, like Marilyn, is a classic (not to mention classy — he was once an AD brother after all). Marilyn might have had Kennedy, but Phil has Gail. Am I right, or am I right? Phil is a longstanding symbol of Dartmouth, and Marilyn, well, Marilyn is a symbol of something else… Gail Gentes as Catwoman To be fair, I’ve never met or had a one-on-one convo with Gail.
