The Noel Fine Arts Center courtyard was filled with everything from parasols to suits earlier this week for its annual costume sale.
From Oct. 27 to 29, students and community members had the opportunity to peruse and purchase articles of clothing from the theater and dance department for incredibly low prices. Some articles of clothing were priced as low as $2.
“All of the proceeds go to Players Student Artistic Alliance,” said production manager Hayden Kraus. “It is one of the biggest fundraisers of the year.”
This sale is an excellent opportunity to pick up cheap costumes for Halloween or unique clothing for those with an eye for vintage or quirky fashion.
“I just walked in and found the sale,” customer Dawn Bostad said. “I’m looking for clothes and costumes for Halloween. The costumes are a lot more interesting than what you find in stores.”
The NFAC courtyard was a sight to see as customers put together ensembles fit for the upcoming holiday. Senior Cassie Boraiko was impressed by the variety of pieces the Players Student Artistic Alliance had for sale.
“There is a lot of funky, unique stuff here for a good price,” Boraiko said. “There are things that you don’t see on a regular basis.”
Sophomore Victoria Hansen also enjoyed the selection of not only costumes, but clothing that could be worn everyday.
“I found a skirt that I bought earlier that I’ll just wear out because it’s high-waisted and really cute,” Hansen said.
It seems many customers were drawn to the low prices featured at the sale. The Players Student Artistic Alliance hopes to gain a fair profit to accompany such a great turn out.
