OK, I need everyone's help with something.

So, yesterday I bought a new black shirt for Convocation, since, you know, the dark purple corset is getting old. Today I was thinking, why are we so... blah? I mean, just black? It's very ambiguous (firsties in black paint) and sort of really boring compared to the rest of campus (no offense to whoever thought it up). So, does anyone have a suggestion for how to spice it up a bit? And not "wear bras," because a) half the campus does bras, b) not everyone in the house wears bras, and c) not everyone will have a black bra (if, you know, we stick to the black thing). I just kind of want suggestions of Convocation things for us to wear that I can bring up with the house. Of course, there will be a vote, and if just "black" wins, we'll keep it, I have no problem with it, I just feel like people in the house want something less "boring," you know? But maybe they don't and I just made it all up.

Anyways, thanks in advance if you have anything to contribute!

(Oh, and new students, no worries, I'll tell you all about Convocation as soon as someone gets me your addresses or e-mails so I can welcome you properly to the house. So, it's okay if you're really confused by this post, I'll be able to clarify sometime in August.)

Mmm, but we can't cover our heads - hats are for seniors only.

Ohhh, haha, that's unfortunate. Well, I'm going to be a first year; I'm sure something will come up.

I should say, that is a cool idea (well, except it can get really hot in JMG that night), but I had a friend (guingel) dress as a pirate last year, and I think, like, half of the seniors yelled at her on the spot because she had a pirate's hat on. Not a mistake that needs to be repeated.
