Covered in a black cape costume and a white mask, the winner of the CSUN Pub Sports Grill Halloween Costume Competition put attendees in the spirit of Halloween.

A loud applause erupted in The Pub Thursday evening when the winning costume was presented on stage.

Arianna Chiriff, 20, majoring in animation, walked slowly onto stage carrying a cane and stood still for the audience to observe the new costume she made. Chiriff won an iPod speaker dock for the Halloween Costume Contest held at the CSUN Pubs Sports Grill.

“I chose to be a plague doctor for Halloween,” Chiriff said. “I was playing Assassins Creed Two and I thought it would make a good scare.”

Thirteen CSUN students were divided into three categories for the most amusing, scary and unique costumes. Each student presented their costumes on stage and were judged in groups of their categories creativity.

Judge panelists Karen Altamirano, Bricksy Cuiroa and Tim Killeps, staff members of the Pub, were having a tough time making a decision on the scariest costume and left it up to the audience to decide.

The CSUN Pubs Sports Grill at the University Student Union held their annual Halloween Costume Competition at 5 p.m. Winning prizes included an iPod speaker dock, a digital camera and a $100 Matamoney card.

Jared Obrien, 19, majoring in film and television, won a digital camera for the most amusing costume. On stage, Obrien presented Lil’ Wayne in character with famous quotes and impersonations.

“The Halloween contest was just for the students to have and to let them know to come next year and bring their friends along,” said Michelle Zakosek, manager of the Pub Sports Grill.

The competition was advertised on Facebook. Posters and flyers were put up in different departments around the University Student Union to alert students.

Even staff members participated by dressing up and setting up Halloween decorations on the stage.

Students dressed as Queen of England, Paint of Hearts, White Rabbit and Madhatter, characters from the Disney movie “Alice in Wonderland,” were presented on stage for the scariest costume category. The group painted their faces to look like zombie versions of their characters.

“I completely love Halloween, and once I found my outfit my friends wanted to do a group theme so we decided on attaching our costumes together,” Cabral Andres, 20, CSUN student majoring in arts said.
