Happy Halloween

Evoking the spooky
What do people dress up as for Halloween? Spotted at last night’s Virtual Insanity party:

  • 2 gladiators
  • a Disney-esque princess
  • 2 belly-dancers
  • a ninja
  • Emily the Strange
  • a pair of Al Capone-esque mobsters
  • a Vietcong soldier
  • a biker dude
  • a pirate
  • a junior college student and convent schoolgirl
  • Phua Chu Kang! (though sans mole and bad perm)
  • Morticia Addams
  • Jason from Friday the 13th
  • several cowboys, including one outfitted with a stuffed horse-head from Ikea, and a cowgirl (me)

I think the Emily the Strange outfit won the prize hands-down for the most spot-on and self-assembled get-up.

Over supper at the Beo Crescent Teochew moi (porridge) place later, there were a couple other people with blood-and-gore-smeared faces. Pretty surreal for Tiong Bahru at 2 am.

Besides the usual costume shops, it seems that Far East Plaza was a good place to hit for D-I-Y costumes. The friend of mine who came as a vampire bought the entire outfit at Lips. Lips! I haven’t been there since I was in secondary school in the late ’80s.

Edited to add (Nov 1):
