Cassidy S. Bouchard, 11
Last year for Halloween, I was Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton from the Broadway musical Hamilton. I remember talking to my friends about my costume in August. It wasn’t my best costume just because it was pretty. It was more about the experience. Between matching with my friends, costume fittings and all that sass, that was my favorite costume.
Riley Barrett, 6
When I was 3 years old, I was a skeleton for Halloween. I liked to dance to Skeleton Bones. I love Halloween.
