NICOLE: Welcome, ladies! I’m curious, how did you go about selecting your individual teams?

MAKENNA (COTC): Our professor selected the hardest working students to compete.

SHAMANE (WU): I chose team members that had creativity and motivation.

NICOLE:  Both good strategies!  What do you think will be your greatest challenge going into this year’s Haunt Couture?

SHAMANE (WU): Remembering to breathe and not freak out!

MAKENNA (COTC): Sewing the costume.

NICOLE: It can’t be easy managing the hard work of a full course load AND crafting a custom garment with a drop-dead performance to match. How do you balance it all?

MAKENNA (COTC): Our team meets every day that we aren’t in classes.

NICOLE: If you could choose ONE resource to have more of (money, fabric, time, etc.), what would it be?

SHAMANE (WU): Maybe more fabric for crafting accessories…or a professional seamstress!

MAKENNA (COTC): Money.

NICOLE: All about that cash, Makenna!  Thank you, ladies. I’ll let you get back to the dorms.

MAKENNA (COTC): But you promised us a ride.

NICOLE: Uh-huh, byeeeeeeee!
