Natty Nittany: #THON12 Swagger
Besides florescent snapbacks and pinnies dawning witty THON puns, the Bryce Jordan Center is full of outlandish attire. The craziness of THON weekend translates into the wacky accessories and costumes in this #THON12 edition of Natty Nittany.
The Donor and Alumni Relations crew was decked out and ready to wrangle up some last minute donations with their flashy orange ties, yo-yo balls, and hardhats. You couldn’t miss them making their way through the crowd with picket signs and genuine smiles.
This is Dr. Matt rocking red, blue and orange bandanas, along with his doctor’s reflector on his head.
Chad is going prehistoric with a green, metallic wig and some kind of dinosaur contraption on his head. I couldn’t help but dig the color coordination.
At first, I stopped Jay solely because he is a menacing 6’5”. Turns out he’s a gentle giant, rocking a lime green fanny pack, green Mardi Gras beads and armed with a plastic squirt gun. The mohawk is a nice touch, too.
This crew of OPPerations Committee members went turtle in a half shell with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle themed masks and backpacks.
Shut up, Ryan Kristobak.
Nothing says spirit like a replica Wookie costume complete with a fake assault rifle and a shoulder belt of ammo. I’d like to see the line dance done in Chewbacca’s voice. Maybe an idea for the 3am morale crew.
Here are some more noteworthy accessories I spotted walked around the BJC concourse. Enjoy!
