We just had a Halloween fashion show at McKenna Elementary School in Massapequa Park. Christina Haley's fifth-grade students and Mary Ellen Scheffler's first-grade students starred in the show. The emcees were fifth-graders Ava Crozier and Matthew Sperounis.

The fashion show took place in the auditorium. Our school's PTA set the stage with all kinds of Halloween decorations. It looked like the set of a real fashion show. Some of the stage decorations included a stand-up werewolf, a 3-foot witch, skeletons and a large spider web.

As soon as we got to the show, we were busy. We took group and individual pictures, we walked down the runway, and the emcees interviewed the models.

During the runway part of the show, each fifth-grader walked down the stage with a first-grader. Everyone did a great job. At the end, both classes got to walk across the stage and act silly.

The first-graders were given costumes from companies such as PB Teen (, Jakks Pacific and Disguise ( and Chasing Fireflies ( Among these costumes were an ice-cream cone, a silver gladiator, Iron Man II, Captain America, lobster boy, CeCe from "Shake It Up!," Rapunzel, Queen of Hearts and Barbie Princess. All the first-graders looked great. They couldn't have been cuter.

Most of the fifth-graders wore homemade costumes. Some of the most memorable ones were Boxman, a "Despicable Me" minion, Bubble Bath Girl and a fortune teller.

Liam Donohue dressed up as Boxman. He wore a big brown box with a painted face. The box had a removable mouth. Boxman was able to make a sad face or a smile.

Gabrielle Kovaluskie was Bubble Bath girl. She created her costume using balloons, a bin and lots of tape. She even had a rubber ducky in her bath. How creative!

Brianna Mollica was a fortune teller. She looked like she was ready to read our fortunes.

Both classes had so much fun working on the fashion show. Watch our fashion whow at Maybe you will get some Halloween costume ideas.
