A few more highlights from Halloween:
The fabulous hosts, dressed for the occasion as the Green Fairy and Nyarlathotep (an HP Lovecraft character, in case, like me, you didn’t know). This is how most of the party looked- dark, cool, and spooky. The house was tricked out with all sorts of decorations and performance lights. Lasers flicked about in a series of neat patterns, a specter-like light shimmered by the table, a projection of scary movies played on the main wall. Even the hallway was lined with strobe lights- which made the walk to the bathroom real scary!
Of course, I couldn’t resist turning on the bright, brash flash and snapping silly photos, so the rest of the party comes out like this:
There were so many great costumes! Some photographed, some not: Lord Stark, plague doctor, escape artist, gypsy, cave troll, hobo, Lemon Meringue, Freddy Krueger (this one was a child, which I thought was way cooler than an adult Freddy would’ve been). Kristy won best costume for Ozma of Oz (perhaps my favorite costume of all time). I was a (non-violent) matador.
At the end, the boys told Alvin Schwartz Scary Stories. Ian did an especially memorable reading ‘Wonderful Sausage’ in the style of a southern gentleman. It came out somewhere between Christopher Walken’s Colonel Angus and Forrest Gump- I cried from laughing.
Great costumes! Looks like fun.
Thanks! I’m pleasantly surprised to find that the older my friends and I get- the more into Halloween we are. :)
OK, you officially attend and/or throw the best parties ever.
I have to credit my friend here- though it must be said we’re all theme party enthusiasts!
wow your party is so cool!
We liked Midnight in Paris! We liked it because the characters were funny and we are interested in some of the same people as the protagonist.. :-)
Yeah, it seemed like the actors in Midnight in Paris had a lot of fun playing 1920s luminaries- and I was impressed that so many were snuck in or at least mentioned (Djuna Barnes- very cool!)
This is awesome! You should enter my fancy dress competition. Its just for fun :)
Thanks! I will check it out! :)
What a great party! Awesome costumes all around. It would so cool to have that laser light system in my apartment.
The fancy lights were borrowed from a gal who does professional stage lighting for a living- I wish I had them in my apartment too!
