Mr. Poveda adds this to his list of impressive Halloween costumes, which already includes Tigger from Winnie-the-Pooh, Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas, Sully from Monsters, Inc., Davy Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean, and the genie from Aladdin.
Poveda admitted that when he trick-or-treated as a child, his costumes weren’t very cool.
“Halloween is more about having fun, enjoy what Halloween is. It’s not all about the candy, but about having fun," said Poveda.
Poveda tries to find costumes that are rare and that students will find cool. Lately, he has found most of his costumes online.
His shopping advice is to look for costumes from November 1st through the 8th because that’s when the best sales are.
Poveda’s personal favorite costume was Sully from Monsters, Inc. It was the most realistic of all his costumes and got the biggest reaction from his students.
