Best Halloween costume of 2008 goes to The Madeira School Science Department

DSCF0086.JPGOK, I’ll admit it.  I’m partial to “home made” Halloween costumes.  “Store bought” just never did it for me.  At The Madeira School annual Halloween parade, the various departments try to come up with unique, humorous and relevant.  In years past, the Athletic Department dressed in matching swimsuits, caps and flippers as a “synchronized swim team,” complete with their own kiddy pool.  The Math Department came as the various flavors of “Pi” – apple, cherry, blueberry, shepherds and “American.”

Give Up ?  They were a “HEAVY METAL BAND !”
