Spooky fashion show to ‘thrill’ OU campus



“That’s the beauty of this event, it ties so many things together — fashion, dance, student talent and the museum exhibit,” he said.

Tickets for the fundraiser are $10 and available by phone at 281-777-7178 and at the door during the event. Tickets also will be available in the OU Memorial Union beginning Oct. 21. Spectrum will run 7-9 p.m. Guests must be 18 or older to attend.

In conjunction with the fashion show, museum student ambassadors will host a student Halloween pre-party at the museum. Music, raffle drawings and a photo booth will entertain guests. Jessica Farling, curator of academic programs at the museum, said student ambassadors are encouraging guests to dress-up, especially in artist or artwork inspired costumes.

“If you dress in costume, you will get a ticket to enter the raffle,” Farling said. “If you dress-up as an artist or artwork, you will get two tickets for the raffle.”

The student Halloween pre-party is free. Students can check out the museum’s Pinterest,, for costume inspiration and ideas. For more information about the pre-party, visit
