Who’d Miss A Chance To Dress Ridiculously?

Large 46-hour long dancing charity events tend to attract some crazies. Besides Halloween, THON is the best, and most appropriate time of the year at Penn State to get as dressed up as absurdly as possible. This year, we have a few candidates for most absurd costume, including a giant box robot, Buzz Lightyear, and the Gingerbread Man.

Even the crew cleaners that mop up the floors have ridiculous outfits complete with colorful umbrellas atop their heads.

What’s your favorite costume?

The Tin Man. Or is it Iron Giant? Or the robot from Futurama? Whatever it is, I like the bucket head. I give this costume a 2.5 out of 4 stars.

Elmo. Old school. Creative. Great pose. But a little bit easier to conjure up than the robot. 2.5 stars.

Batman. Strange looking Batman. 3 stars.

The Gingerbread Man. Cookies are awesome. Cookies that come to life are creepy. It becomes too similar to cannibalism to eat them. And he’s shy. We’ll go with a 2.

The Geico Gecko. I don’t like lizards or people who try to give sell me insurance. But just in case he’s not the Geico Gecko, I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and say 3 stars.

Buzz Lightyear. 4 stars. Awesome movie. Great costume idea. Especially for the Sliding event. My favorite costume.

You’ll notice that the man wearing just a thong was left out of this contest. No, you obviously cannot do that for charity.
