Spooky and Whimsical: 2017 Halloween Costumes at SVA [Slideshow]

The creativity of SVA students was once again on full display at this year’s VASA Halloween Party, which took place on Thursday, October 26 at Bowlmor Chelsea Piers. Nearly 700 students came out in impressively crafted costumes to bowl, play laser tag, hit the dance floor and of course, to compete in the annual costume contest. First place went to BFA Illustration student Cosette Bruning for her hilarious "Jack in The Box" costume. Check out a slideshow of photos from the party below.
