Senior Lily Buchen transformed into Dusk the Hex Girl from Scooby Doo for her choir banquet performance on May 2.

“We were so excited to perform for people because the choir banquet’s a fun place to perform.  It’s a good audience and everyone was really excited, so we dressed up in full costume and just went all out,” Buchen said.

Buchen was a part of a trio with seniors Rachel Fischer and Alex Rivera Grant.

“We decided to perform because it’s our senior year and also because Theo [Brown] made us do it,” Buchen said.

Buchen has been a part of choir for four years and show choir for three years, so she is used to performing. She prepared for the trio with Fisher and Rivera Grant just a few days before.

“We figured we’d go with the flow because it was a pretty lowkey performance,” Buchen said.

Rivera Grant suggested dressing up as the Hex Girls because the banquet was Scooby Doo themed. Buchen chose to dress up as Dusk for a variety of reasons.

“I chose Dusk because I had a green dress in my closet and I liked her pigtails. She looked kind of gay and cool and I wanted to emulate that,” Buchen said.

Her favorite part about performing at the banquet was having the opportunity to make her friends laugh.

“I could hear a lot of individual people laughing or saying things. I could hear Nicole [Modert]’s laugh really clearly and it made me laugh,” Buchen said. “I really liked getting up and being silly for people.”
