Several statues at the University of North Texas greeted students with new, colorful and fashionable looks Monday, which marked the first day of classes for the semester.

Owls, turtles, deer, rabbits and more donned sweaters and scarves.

The university took to its Facebook page Monday to applaud the project, writing, "SWEATER BOMBED: Last night, UNT's statues were mysteriously decked out with nice knits. To the anonymous dresser, thank you for keeping our permanent residents warm and colorful! UNT student Wesley Kirk took the wonderful photos."

As it turns out, UNT film student Erin Summerlin, along with UNT and TWU fashion major Caitlin Antkowski and TWU fashion major Savannah Flusche were behind the new attire, according to peopleofdenton.tumblr.com

The women waited until midnight Monday morning to dress the statues in their outfits, which took a few hours to cut and stitch.

The women planned the stunt over winter break.

Photos were taken by Wesley Kirk of The Vision Beautiful.
