The Best Capes Of THON 2015

THON is well-known for flaunting bright colors, tutus, socks, and hats, among other ridiculous props. Included in the dancer’s wardrobe is a sign of superhuman strength, necessary for dancing an incredible 46 hours — a colorful cape.

It’s become an annual tradition for us here at Onward State to find the best capes of THON. Without further ado, here are the best from THON 2015.

Samantha Glancey, dancing in her first THON, represented Penn State York with a dazzling purple and gold combination, complete with block “FTK” letters.

Kevan Solanski, a DRCM who participated in his third THON, looked like the Dark Night with a Batman themed cape.

Tom Campuzan and Dan Marr, who danced for Phi Chi Theta, were rocking Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles themed capes, complete with turtle-themed masks. Cowabunga, dude!

Jen Rausch, who danced for Alpha Delta Pi, was surprised by her DRCM Brian Zolot with a purple cape to match her purple died hair before setting off the complete the 46.
