Halloween 2011

Posted on Posted in America

I love halloween a lot. It is maybe my favorite holiday, ever.

So last night I got dressed up in all the thrifted denim a girl could ask for to channel my best Rosie the Riveter, had some friends over, and then we wandered over to Highball in the Short North. I was a little disappointed in the whole thing as far as logistics went (we stood in line for 30 minutes to get drink tickets and eventually just decided to head to a local bar instead), but nothing is better than some good people watching! There were lots of great costumes out and about, and, happily, not too much ¬†slutty sluttiness. Not that I’m judging people who want to go the slutty route (ok, I’m judging a little…and I’ve done it too, and will probably do it again, and I’m prepared for judging) but creative costumes are way more fun to look at! Those of note: a girl dressed as Kim Jong-il, a very handsome Superman making out with his equally handsome boyfriend Captain America, a couple being awesome American Gladiators, lots of bananas for some reason…yeah. Oh, and lots of steampunk so and so’s.

It was a good time. I’m already planning for next year-since Halloween isn’t so big in England, I plan on hosting a party at Jon and I’s place and it. will. rule.

Happy Halloween!

  1. Hey there, thanks for stopping by my blog. I love meeting other people who have lived in Korea! Where abouts did you live? I used to teach English there and lived in Cheonan and then the outskirts of Seoul. Happy Halloween! x

    1. I used to live in Namyangju, just outside of Seoul too-my husband and I both used to teach English there (that’s where we met), but he’s from the Brighton area of England! I think that’s how I remember finding your blog, I was looking for some interesting Brit ones to follow, and you mentioned that your bf is from California, so we’ve got the bi-cultural relationship thing happening too:)

  2. Ev-thrift store! Specifically, the goodwill across from giant eagle down n.high. i was so stoked. 2 dollars. will wear for not-costume purposes.
