Costume Contest Highlights

AnnaThis Halloween, Anna Wintour sat front row on the catwalk at the annual DASH costume contest. Gandalf the Great (a.k.a. Mr. Gilham) commanded a captivated undead audience, announcing entries as each contestant danced down the runway toward a ghastly panel of unrecognizable teacher judges. As always, the whole school got into the spirit of phantom fun. Congratulations to Madison Taylor and Ruben Zamora-Vargas, who won with a hilarious performance in the most frightening costumes of all (VMA Miley Cyrus & Robin Thicke).
