Haunt Teams Sound Off on Challenges, Competition, and Conveying Theme
Nicole with GlasPro sat down with two of this year’s Student Team leaders to discuss the challenges of competing.
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.
SHAMANE (WU): Good time management and lots of spinach!
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!
