How would you describe your door?
At first, [my roommate] Liz kinda made most of these [drawings] and colored them. And I was like, “I want it to say ‘Happy Halloween.’" But, we realized we couldn't do it all the way around. And then I just decided to do movies, like some of my favorite movies. I don’t really like horror movies, so these are like family Halloween movies. So that’s kind of what our theme was for that.
Why did you decide to decorate it?
I think it was because my roommate was coloring this [Ball State logo], and I was like, "Let’s decorate our door!" And it was like Halloween, and we were bored; it was a Sunday. We felt festive, so we were like, "Let’s just decorate our door. Let’s just go for it."
What do you think is unique about your decorations?
I think the movies make it unique because a lot of people have Halloween, like the cobwebs and stuff. We actually have the letters.
What kind of reactions have you gotten?
Everyone’s pretty much loved it. When we first did it, everyone was like, "Aww. Wish we’d thought of that,” or something. We’ve gotten pretty good reactions. Everyone seems to like it. Everyone stops by.
What are you most looking forward to this Halloween?
Seeing all the costumes.
