The best Halloween celebration/event i’ve ever been to is the block party in West Hollywood, CA. about 40k people hit the streets costume-clad (or not!), ready to meet/mingle/see/beseen. in AZ, the closet thing i’ve found to that West Hollywood extravaganza is the Tempe Block Party on Mill Ave. It’s a much smaller scale (think only 3 blocks) and mainly people are there to bar hop, but you’ll definitely see those unique individuals who put time + effort into their costumes and wish to show.them.off.
so the man and i finally decided to go with some relatively easy costumes (we’ve been hard-pressed for time this month) and went has Racoon Mario + Princess Peach. the one day we worked on our costumes we found out it was very rewarding to craft together! lol, total geeks, i know. 🙂 i wanted to flip out the yellow hair in Peach’s signature layers but wasn’t too sure + was kinda scared about styling a nylon wig in fear of fuckin’ it uP beyond repair.
homemade twister dude! they told me i had to play if i wanted to take a photo so i spun… it just so happened that i got left foot red, which also happened to be on his family jewels! Princess Peach not only kicks a$$, i kick baLLZ, too, baby!!! LMaO. :’D
these guys were simply fabulous. was the mullet or the bodysuit better? i can’t call it.
Roshambo! Or, as I grew up knowing it, Paper Scissors Rock! 😀 Loved these ladies for doing this. All in all, the street was flooded with store-bought costumes. There were more pirates and prisoners than I could care to count. It’s all about creativity! Not looking like someone else. 😛
my favorite costumes of the night:
