SLS brings the dead back to life for Halloween

MANIPAL: For the seventh year, School of Life Sciences (SLS), Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE), held its annual Halloween Night on October 26.

The Manipal Journal brings you the story in pictures.


“The spirit of Halloween has more to do with getting dressed up, watching movies, playing games, and having a good time with your friends rather than what we see in movies. This year we wanted Halloween Night to be bigger and invited various colleges from MAHE,” said Kanaya Bhattacharya, a third year BSc student and organiser of the event. || Photograph Courtesy: Aparna Shankar


The decorations were put up in approximately two days. Spiders, bats, ghosts and severed hands were amongst many of the decorations created from various household items. Kanaya added, “All of the décor is made from recycled materials.” Empty bottles, bottle caps, old newspapers and garbage bags were some of the items used. || Photograph Courtesy: Tamanna Wadehra

A face painting booth was set up to give attendees of the night just the right amount of gore to help take their costume to the next level. “Many students are coming here after a long day of college and feel too tired to dress up. We figured that a face painting booth was a good idea to get them into the Halloween spirit,” said Kanaya. || Photograph Courtesy: Aparna Shankar


One of the main attractions was the Haunted House, which left many shrieking with fear after being scared by various organisers who popped up from unexpected corners, some even hiding in boxes. Additionally, a photo booth was constructed where those attending were able to take pictures using various props crafted by SLS students for the event. || Photograph Courtesy: Tamanna Wadehra


The students were extremely enthusiastic and put in efforts to have the best costume they could possibly have, using mundane, everyday objects to achieve the perfect outfit. || Photograph Courtesy: Tamanna Wadehra
