De Anza College’s International Student Program (ISP) hosted a Halloween costume contest in which the participants competed for a $25 cash prize, ate food and took pictures in the ISP offices on Oct. 31.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., ISP members dressed up in costumes to compete against one another. The program also hosted pumpkin carving and sing-a-longs.

“I’m French Toast!” ISP counselor Lynn Ling said. 

De Anza student Hedid Habibi decided to dress up as Kanye West and won the $25 prize. 

“(It’s) based on the old Kanye West,” Habibi said. “Not the new Ye, only the old Ye.”

Harmed Singh, an ISP secretary, dressed as an Egyptian King. He said the costume contest would be something he would want to do in the future. 

“I’ve really been enjoying the costume contest,” Singh said.
