Anyway, I think I've recovered from the Halloweekend that just happened. It only took n litres of water, a total of 11 hours of sleep and an unquantifiable amount of food. Ahhh. Tough life. This Halloween was probably the only time I went all out on a costume. You see, I have this thing when I'm all pumped up about the occasion at least 5 months ahead only to lose interest the day before and have someone convince me to go thus panic over a costume. And this year, the exact same thing happened. Luckily, my sister has patience, energy and a kind heart to go with me and look for a costume (God, I love you, Beb).
Good thing Halloween has gotten quite big here in Japan that there are actually stores that sell set costumes all year long and I have the demented cosplaying Japs to thank for. Went to this store in Osu Kannon called Body Line, looked around for a few minutes and almost instantly decided to dress up as a cliche. Every perv's fantasy. I ended up looking like this:
Honestly though, if it were up to me and not my wallet, I would've gone for the FBI costume I found. But hey, last-minute shoppers can't be choosers. There was a crazy line at the store and it was funny albeit strange when I saw a mother buying her teenage daughter a slutty costume. Parenthood. I'm sure her daughter will go many places.
As much I really wanted to utilize my costume for all it's worth (not that much, btw) by taking heaps of photos, I woke up on Sunday with a scrape on my knee (the right one this time), a dry throat and a sorry excuse for Saturday night's recollection. Checked my phone and found 5 photos. My sister really is such a blessing for having more photos than I do.
I was completely gone from the moment we started walking to the clubs. The lesson here is to NEVER DRINK ON AN EMPTY STOMACH. So I may have gotten shifaced but the good news was I lost 2 lbs when I stepped on the weighing scale next morning. Yeah, my body will be in mint condition if I keep this going. Anyway, if you're interested, here are some photos from this year's and last year's Halloween nights.
Clockwise from top right: YOU ALL SHOULD BE ASHAMED. LOOK AT THAT EFFORT; Ian's god of a body; don't ask me; my gfraaands at one of the clubs
Bottom right: with Rebecca and I say that with pride because I can't believe I remember her name! I wonder if I'll ever see her again..
Why I have so many photos with Stomach-Hair guy, I don't wanna know.
And I always carry flats with me. Always.
Leah and I. We were joking around that I was an elementary school student and she a high school slut I mean, student. Haha
(took this one while costume hunting in Osu. Seriously, that place has Halloween written all over it all year long)
And here are photos from last year's Halloween. Maje improvement on the costume situation, huh!
No idea what look I was going for. Some asked if I were trying to pass off as Nicki Minaj and I conveniently said "Exactly!"
Loved Amy's costume! The wonders the 100 yen shop has are endless!
I wonder how his nuts were the next morning..
Just enough proof that ANYONE can wear short shorts.
Ryu, Alex (my dream costume, btw), a goth (?), and a traffic enforcer
Cheap and cheerful binge-drinking.
That was my Halloween. Already pretty excited about next year. Wonder what/who I'll be going as. But then again, knowing me, I probably won't even go until the last minute.
