Guys and dolls anticipated for Halloween at HU

Snooki, Kim Kardashian, and Nicky Minaj?

The ladies of Hampton University are trading in the traditional scary Halloween costumes to dress as their favorite reality television stars and the newest female rap artist of 2010.

Spending hours at the mall shopping for just the right outfit replaced the usual 30 minutes at the costume store this year.

“My wig was so hard to find,” said one student when asked Thursday what was the best part of her costume.

Male students are anxious to see the ladies in their costumes. “Halloween is just an excuse to dress promiscuous,” said James K. “I can’t wait!”

He might be right. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is infamous for wearing short dresses and high heels, Kim is known for her bikini modeling and Nicki is known for “butt pads” and push-up bras.

It will be interesting to see how ladies pull this one off.

The men are “keeping it simple” with popular costumes such as Scream, Freddy and Mr. T. Some guys have had the same costume for years and plan to reuse them again next year.

“I prefer something scary,” said a student when asked why he chose to be the Scream character.

Police later arrested him for walking around campus in his costume a couple of days too early. Apparently, he was making people uncomfortable.

On Saturday, Oct. 30, a Fright Fest party is being held in the atrium of the Student Center.

Many people are planning to attend, fully dressed in their costumes and outfits.

It is sure to be a fun-filled night with plenty of scares.
