It’s not everyday you see Cleopatra and the Queen of Hearts dancing with Betty Boop to Michael Jackson’s Thriller, but at Tri-County Community College’s (TCCC) annual costume contest, students across departments showed up and showed out in their best outfits.

Beginning at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 27 in the Harper Building, students were judged in four separate categories: Spookiest, Funniest, Most Creative, and Best All-Around costume.

President Dr. Donna Tipton-Rogers joined onlookers in cheering for the contestants as they took turns doing their best struts to show off their looks.

“It makes me so happy to see you all dressed up today,” said Tipton-Rogers to the group of contestants as they displayed their outfits for the panel of judges. “I’d never want to be a judge because you all look so wonderful.”

After seeing the judges, the party moved next door to the Enloe Multi-Purpose Room for fun, music, light refreshment, and prizes for the winners. TCCC students giggled as they filed into the darkly lit dance floor, decorated with strobe lights and spooky decorations.

Music blasted from the speakers as students and staff danced to the Cha-Cha Slide and the Electric Slide.

When the time came for the prizes to be awarded, students cheered for the winners.

Kristina Hall, who won best all-around for her Queen of Hearts costume, said she chose her costume as a family theme.

“My little girl is going as Alice and my mom is going to be the Mad Hatter,” Hall said.

Other winners included Helen Hill as Cleopatra for Most Creative and Susan Guess as the Wicked Witch of the West for Spookiest.
