I ventured down the road to Princeton yesterday to watch the Arts Council of Princeton’s annual Halloween parade. The parade started in Hinds Plaza, near the Princeton Public Library. The Princeton University March Band arrived to lead the parade, and participants marched from Hinds Plaza to Palmer Square. At the destination, the Arts Council hosted a costume contest.
I decided to focus on the costumes rather than the parade as a whole, so I brought just the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM zoom lens to use with my Canon EOS 5D Mark III. Bright colors are a popular aspect of almost all costumes, so rather than my typical black-and-white, I put an extra emphasis on the colors.
I was pleased to see a pair of girls (teenagers, maybe) dressed in classic Doctor Who garb: the Fourth and Fifth incarnations of the Doctor. Most of the other costumed participants were much younger, and many featured costumes inspired by Despicable Me, Star Wars, and the usual contingent of superheroes.
There are sixty-five photos in all, with minimal processing. Besides the gallery here, I’ve also uploaded the same photos (watermarked) to Facebook.
