SASS Presents: Scary History!

MON // OCT 21

Get in the Halloween spirit with spooky stories and haunted histories at this month's Scary-Ass SASS.

Lecture Details:

Behind the Mask:  A Brief History of Fancy Dress, Costume Parties, and Halloween Revelry

Fashion & Dress Historian Bethany Gingrich will explore the fascinating history of fancy dress parties in the 19th century and their connection to the emergence of Halloween in America. Whether to frighten small children, wear the sexiest costume, or enjoy the purely ridiculous, the human desire to dress up for one wild night hasn’t faded. 

The Amazing True Tales of BooBuddy Jr., the Incredible Ghost Hunting Teddy Bear

Colin Dickey will display his amazing teddy bear that hunts ghosts, share stories of their fabulous adventures together, and talk about why someone might want to shove some deliberately malfunctioning electronics into a stuffed animal and walk around empty houses with it.

Mummies of the World!

Whether nature made them by accident, or people made them because why not, mummies always provide a rare glimpse of life in the olden days. Get familiar with the different ways mummies are made, and learn how to avoid their curses. With SASS co-founder Anna Rasche!
