Halloween (Part Two)
Oh hey, bet you thought Halloween was over, didn’t you? Well, thanks to my undying love and enthusiasm for this, the most unsettling of holidays (and also due to my inability to post things in a timely fashion), there’s plenty more Halloween madness to come *spooky Halloween laugh*….
Halloween is pretty much the biggest day of the year around here, and we take it very, very seriously. I had originally planned to be a mermaid, but then I decided that I wanted to use special effects makeup and contact lenses to make it look like I’d been slashed in the face, so I ended up being a Siren – the kind of evil mermaid that lures men to their watery graves.
Chels wanted to be Harley Quinn (classic comic book style) and she absolutely killed it. Scott had a bit of a disaster with his Maleficent costume because the horns he had ordered failed to arrive, but we managed to find enough things to stick together with a glue gun to make a pretty good home made version.
As far as I’m concerned, Camden is the only place to be on Halloween. As soon as we got off the tube, we were greeted by crowds of people dressed as werewolves and zombies and comic book characters thronging up the escalators, and spilling out into the streets, heading for the Stables, or, like us, across the street to the Underworld.
The Underworld is really the perfect venue for Halloween night – they had a great DJ and at one point a mosh pit started on the dance floor – it made me feel fifteen again, which is really what Halloween is all about, right? We found plenty of jokers for our Harley Quinn, and I even saw a guy dressed as Bane (my number one movie crush) dancing to Blink 182.
We had so much fun, and I got a kick out of wandering back through London at 4am and seeing vampires and skeletons jumping on buses or into taxis.
Thanks for letting me share a few photos from the night,
