On 22 October 2020, IACT Performing Arts club decided to hit off the Halloween season by hosting a costume challenge on their Instagram account. Participants were asked to photograph themselves in unique costumes and post it on Instagram under the hashtag #PARTSOWEEN. The first prize for this competition was a RM10 Grab voucher.
Up to 19 participants made their entries since the challenge commenced. Among the 19 contestants, Angel Bu (@angel_buuuuu) stood out with her disturbingly realistic “zombie bride” costume. Thus, she became the first prize winner of the PARTSOWEEN challenge.
IACT PARTS hosted this event to combat the loneliness of the recent MCO, allowing students to enjoy dressing up in costumes despite not being able to leave their houses. All the participants claimed that it was an incredibly enjoyable contest, and that seeing their friends put on costumes for the competition encouraged others to join in as well. IACT PARTS hopes that next year’s PARTSOWEEN will be held in person, and hopefully without any interferences from COVID-19.
