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.
