Candy, music, dancing and games.

Students had a chance to bust a move last Friday night at the Sci-fi Halloween dance.

Highlights of the night include the opening hours of chaotic dancing, a disappointing attempt to play “Thriller” by Michael Jackson and a costume contest where awards were given out to the scariest costume, best couples costume, best group costume and judges choice.

The winners of best group costume were 4 Disney princesses; Eric Nelson as Ariel, Christopher Turner as Pocahontas, Matt Niemann as Princess Leia and Christian Heine as Aurora.

“The costume was cold, but it was definitely worth it. I looked fabulous. I definitely have a better appreciation for women and what they have to wear, though they don’t normally wear bikinis on a regular basis or I don’t anyway,” Nelson, Ariel, said.

There were downsides to dressing up as a princess for Halloween.

“The most annoying thing about the costume was the lack of pockets. You don’t realize how useful those are until you don’t have them. Christian was smart, he brought a purse,” Nelson said.

Club officers were most proud of the involvement and initiative shown by the club members organizing the dance.

“We had a better turnout this year than last year. We had great helpers and our club members followed through wonderfully, the way we expected them to,” Sci-fi treasurer Liz Ziska said.

Sci-fi vice-president Steele Giles felt dance-goers enjoyed themselves.

“I think it went pretty well for attendance. The folks that were there had fun,” Giles said.
