Halloween Costume Ball was an event planned by Northwestern University in Qatar's Student Government (NU-QSG) along with the collaboration of NU-Q's Theatre Club, which took place on the 31st of October at 6:30 pm till 9:30 pm (the night was supposed to end at 8:30 pm but people danced all through 9:30 pm) in the Atrium at the Recreation Center. As we were planning it, I heard VCU-Q wanted to join in too so I contacted one of their students who, along with his classmates, performed a flash dance on Rihanna's song, Disturbia. Collobrating with VCU was a great pleasure, bringing a lot of energy to the night especially with their dance and coming in the most terrifying and creative costumes. The spot definitely looked like "Thriller" night. There were about at least 100-120 people from NU-Q, VCU-Q, GU-Q and Texas A&M. There were two young journalism females from Qatar University who came to cover event too. Almost everyone was in costumes, dressing as dolls, school girls, jig saw, witches, Madonna, ghosts, zombies, samurais, cat women and so much more. Those who came without costumes were directed to the costume station where they found wigs and funky glasses to fit with the dress code. The face painters made each person wear his or her costume to it's best. For those who didn't want to dance, they could go directly to the pumpkin craving station or keep themselves busy by choosing a variety of delicious sweets that vary from finger-licking-good eyeball or pumpkin cup cakes to crunchy witch fingers. CMU-Q alumni, Reem Al Khatib, prepared this mind-blowing menu and the guy who dropped the jams was Omer, also from CMU-Q. With its complete success, I definitely see it happening again.
