Capturing the attention of Wilsonville High School Students, junior and thespian Kameron Koslowski arrived throughout spirit week in imaginative outfits. Known for active participation in the theatre department, Koslowski has had experience in the realm of creative expression through costume. Many students brush aside or forget to dress up according to the themes during spirit weeks. Koslowski, however, takes spirit days to the next level, never failing to construct a stand-out costume in a short amount of time.

This last spirit week, Koslowski turned heads in his spectacular outfits. He managed to pull off his festive looks and encourage school spirit. Leading up to spring break, unmotivated students’ week was brightened by Koslowski.

Throughout the school year, Koslowski took the time to dress up for all spirit weeks and holidays. He has worn an entire snowboarding suit for winter day, disguised as Santa going on “a jolly vacation”, adorned himself in the full wardrobe of Elizabethan Royalty for crazy hair day, and dressed as an “old-timey” bank robber for the western day. On Halloween, he went about his school day fully as the Joker.

Though a couple of particular outfits stood out the most. He impersonated visual art teacher Shotola-Hardt precisely for twin day. As for tacky tourist day, he explained that he became the “tackiest of tourists”.

Peyton Butler, an award-winning costume designer, shared her thoughts, “As his friend, I would say this is normal. He did the same thing last year, but he definitely stepped up this year. The Shotola-Hardt one was funny and the beach one (tacky tourist). He went above and beyond.”

His uncanny resemblance to Shotola-Hardt in costume successfully tricked staff and students for a moment. Koslowski was equipped with similar thin-wire glasses, a purple apron, and some paintbrushes. He perfected the signature look with silver paint in his styled hair and fine brush strokes to create a beard. For a day, a Shotola-Hardt doppelganger was visiting the classrooms and causing students confusion and then recognizing the disguise.

Koslowski communicated, “I personally liked dressing as Shotola-Hardt because I was able to convince his students and fellow staff members that I was him from a ways away and even had students start to talk to me like him before doing a double take and realizing it was me. I also had painting students painting my face to look like Shotola-Hardt’s!”

Though the twin day outfit was very convincing, he felt that the Tacky Tourist Santa outfit stood out the most to other students and teachers.

“I think that the Tacky Tourist Santa one got the most attention because since you couldn’t see my face at all, all you could tell was that Santa was roaming the halls. I got several students and staff asking for pictures with me on that day,” reflected Kowslowski as he thought about how his fellow students responded to his outfits.

One can imagine the careful, thought out planning that must go into Koslowski’s spirit week outfits. Surprisingly, Koslowski described that he quickly devises them the morning of.

He clarified, “Then, I raid my closet and car for various costume pieces I own, and then when I get to school, I complete the look by looking through our school’s costume loft and adding finishing touches!” His fast approach to forming such outfits shows his theatrical creativity.

Koslowski will be producing more outfits in future spirit weeks. Though he currently has no plans, he assures that the mornings of, he will know just what to do.
