Question of the Week (Halloween)

Oct. 24, 2011

Each week during the 2011 season, will ask each member of the University of Michigan volleyball team the same question as the "Question of the Week."

Week 10: With Halloween around the corner, what has been the best costume you have ever worn?

Sloane Donhoff - I don't know why, but I have been an Indian princess multiple times in my life for Halloween, even since I've been in college. I think it's because one of my favorite Disney movies growing up as a kid was "Pocahontas."

Karlee Bruck - This is an easy one! Last year's costume was by far the BEST Halloween costume I have ever worn. I paired up with Molly Toon and we dressed up as Kip (Me) and Lafawnduh (Molly) from the movie "Napoleon Dynamite."

Molly Toon - Last year, Karlee and I went as Kip and Lafawnduh from "Napoleon Dynamite." It was my best and most creative costume by far. We stayed in character the whole night!

Brittany Lee - My best Halloween costume was last year when I was the green alien from "Toy Story." I painted my face green and went around saying, "the CLAW," all night long. It was truly epic.

Lauren Teknipp - One year I was Baby Spice from the Spice Girls. I was OBSESSED with them; I had all of their movies, music, Barbie dolls, clothes and everything else. I guess you could say I was a fan. This was just a very special one for me, and my mom even made the costume herself. I had some awesome white go-go boots to complete my outfit, and it was my favorite!

Courtney Fletcher - First, I must give credit to my mom for my love of costumes. Growing up, she sewed my costumes and I always looked cute, put together, and festive. However, I would credit my costume from last year as my best to date when I was the little boy (Russell) from the movie "Up!" My outfit was complete with a wilderness explorer hat, bandanna, backpack with all the essentials (radio, flippers, snorkel, a lantern, snacks, and a tennis racket), a sash with badges (which were real copies of all my badges from girl scouts growing up), and finally a huge bouquet of balloons attached to my backpack. It was difficult to move around with all the props, but so worth it.

Ally Sabol - My favorite Halloween costume was when I was a bee in seventh grade. It wasn't really creative or anything, but it was cute and I got to wear a tutu.

Lexi Erwin - My grandma used to make my Halloween costumes when I was younger because she is into the sewing scene. When I was seven years old, she made my sisters and me be dandelions. We each had a green bodysuit and then we wore a headband with HUGE petals sewn onto it. It was quite the outfit, but it was by far my best effort.

Claire McElheny - When I was three, my mom dressed me up in a black sweatshirt and sweatpants. I went as a spider when she connected three more "legs" to each of my arms.

Catherine Yager - When I was about five years old, I've seen pictures of myself dressed in a lion costume. It was so cute! There was no way anyone was not going to give me candy!

Alex Hunt - I was the blonde witch from the movie "Hocus Pocus" in the first grade. My mom made the most elaborate costume.

Michelle McMahon - My best Halloween costume was by far sophomore year with the "fab five" (Claire, Alex, Courtney and Sloane). We were the Spice Girls and naturally I was "Ginger Spice." I wore a British flag dress with white boots; it was awesome.

Olivia Reed - My friends and I always took Halloween very seriously and would make lists of costume ideas in the summer in preparation. I think my favorite theme we did was "Clue" characters during our junior year of high school. I was Professor Plum, and I carried around an old fashion pipe everywhere. All night we would joke about what rooms we were in and who committed the murder and with what weapon.

Lexi Dannemiller - My best Halloween costume was when I was a baby and my parents dressed me up as a pumpkin. I was the cutest baby pumpkin, no doubt.
