It was a vampire kind of night…

Halloween2008_31 I am so sure you are all waiting with baited breath to see what I was for Halloween, so without further ado…drum roll, please! Selene from the movie Underworld. You would think it would be easy to put together a replica of a skin tight catsuit, corset wearing, gun-toting character from a movie. Well, folks, it’s really wasn’t. The night before Halloween I was sewing my own leg holsters all from items bought at Home Depot. But somehow I think I managed to pull it off, no? Halloween2008_32

I guess I went with this costume because, well, the obvious vampire thing, but also because she’s a strong woman character. Whose gonna mess with someone that looks like that?!

So, because I was so set on going vampire, BFF went vampire, but more classical. No guns or tight leather outfits for him. And he went more traditional on the makeup. I just went as pale as I could without using crazy white grease makeup. Not too bad. The one tip I do have for anyone thinking about being a vampire at any Halloween is get the $15 fangs. They are so worth the extra $10 in that you mold them to your own teeth, so you can pop them in and out at will and they go back in! BFF went cheap and didn’t have as good of luck with his fangs.

We partied in the city first at JBar and then Excalibur. Excalibur may be considered a tourist trap by city dwellers, but it was a blast! I met Heath Ledger as the Joker, Hellboy, Jigsaw, The Creature from the Black Lagoon (I think), and many other ghosts and ghouls. And did you know it’s haunted?

Maybe next year I’ll go simple and be a sexy nurse or policewoman…nah!

You guys look great! Our Halloween was much more domestic – handing out hot cider and cookies, and chasing the toddler around the subdivision.
We need to do dinner soon! 🙂
