At the end of May, Pelican delved to the other side of the pond: College Row, to investigate the fashion and style of its residents at theeeee (drumroll please) 2021 RSD TOGA PARTY! There were old bed sheets, brand couture, and most importantly, blood, sweat, and tears poured into making FANTASTIC costumes! Stay tuned for the next edition and for all college students who missed out…. we may be back in the future!


#5 Tommy Moore Freshers

What are they wearing?!

A Target Sheet that they cut up with a pair of pigeon scissors completed with a stapled side slit.

Because their blood, sweat and tears went into this and it took wayyy longer then it should have!
