An Emerson Musical Theater major is reportedly extremely upset that not a single person recognized his obscure Halloween costume from last night.
At a costume party in Allston, freshman Tommy Schmidt was asked several times, “What are you supposed to be?”
“Ummm… I’m Ernst, from Spring Awakening. Duh!” Schmidt responded each time in disgust, while in disbelief no one knew his hardly recognizable and totally random outfit from the Broadway musical.
To make matters worse, sources say all of Schmidt’s friends he went out with dressed up as popular characters from big movies and TV shows and were showered with compliments for their costumes, while he got completely snubbed.
“Ooooh, Rick Grimes [from “The Walking Dead”],” Schmidt said sarcastically to reporters about his friend’s costume. “Real fucking creative!”
At press time, Schmidt had decided to switch to a slightly more mainstream costume for tonight’s festivities, Anatole from “Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812.”
