Brandon Valley High School in South Dakota recently held its homecoming week, with students coming to school dressed in costumes that pertained to certain themes. One day, students' costumes were supposed to be inspired by salad dressings—freshman and sophomores showed up in beach gear for "Thousand Island Dressing," while juniors and seniors were asked to dress up for "Ranch Day."
Here's what every other junior and senior wore on Ranch Day:
And here is what 17-year-old BVHS senior and our new national hero, Carson Haase, wore:
That's right. She literally went to school dressed as a bottle of ranch dressing. HERO.
Haase told Buzzfeed News that she was nervous about wearing the costume to school, but that the suicide of her close friend in March made her see that she needed to have the courage to be her hilarious self.
“She was a great person and made everyone realize that you should take the moment and live in it, because you don’t have very long to do so,” Haase said of her friend, Brittany Corcoran.
Haase posted the photos of her costume on Twitter and, of course, they immediately went viral.
"I'm from a small town in South Dakota, but now I'm famous for dressing like a ranch bottle," she told Buzzfeed. "I think that's hilarious."
