If ever in search of a crowd of students sporting attire both weird and wonderful, look no further than any ArcSoc event – run by Cambridge University’s Architecture society.

On Tuesday night, ArcSoc took place at the pub ‘The Fountain’, spreading itself across all 3 floors.

With each one holding its own distinct vibe, there wasn’t a fed-up face in sight. And, as with all ArcSoc events, the strange theme allowed for an impressive array of intricate decorations made by the architecture students themselves.

This time around, it was ‘MAGNAVOX ODYSSEY’ (something to do with retro video games), and scattered across the walls was an abundance of Pacmans, Space Invaders and other strange specimen, creating a warm – and very sweaty – air of nostalgia.

We picked out a selection of the most unique, strange and generally stylish outfits in sight:

That stare. That fang. Almost as imposing as that door.
