Fun fact: did you know I JUST realized this year that Halloween is pronounced Hallo-WEEN? Yeah, took me long enough. I always went like HALL-oween. I don't know why...
But anyway, yeah! About my Halloween! :D
I was having some problems deciding my costume. I couldn't figure out what I wanted to be.
This had rarely happened to me before -- I really like Halloween and I am usually very adamant about my costumes. I like something, I get it, that's it.
But this year I was like OMG WHAT SHOULD I DOOOOO
First I wanted to be a zombie. But I would have to alter an already-made costume (such as, nurse, for example), and turn it zombie-ish. It was too much of a hassle. And surely, I could do better.
Then I wanted a Peach (from Mario Bros.) costume, but my boyfriend said it wouldn't do. After all, no-one knows who Peach is in Argentina (err, we don't have enough money for videogames, LOL). Certainly nobody in my group would recognize me.
Then I thought, well, why not Mario? That's more iconic. I went into Party City to but it, and only size medium was left...
Yeah, no luck. I was so depressed. I even got to thinking, what the heck, I'm not dressing up this Halloween. How could that EVER cross my mind? Me missing a holiday?! How could this ever be!!?!
Then I strolled by Claire's and saw the big poster for Halloween, which had a girl dressed as a skeleton.
YES, THAT WAS IT!!
I'm going to be the creepiest skeleton in the world. I'm going to creep everyone out. YES, THAT'S WHAT I'M GOING TO DO.
I fell in love with the skeleton tights they were selling at Claire's, and they were even having a Buy one Get one free sale, so I just bought up the whole store. You may not be able to see it in my costume because my hair just ate my accessories, but I even had glow in the dark full skeleton earrings.
So, meet Skull Kid! (any gamer will get this reference)
(my boyfriend is the Angry Bird)
(my skirt was so short...)
Yeah, my costume has nothing to do with Majora's Mask. But I liked calling myself the "Skull Kid" because it has a nice ring to it.
I drank a lot that night. We were a party of about 10 people - really boring if you ask me, but we were all friends so we had a good time. We should have gone out dancing afterwards, but with a few drinks up in my head, I began to feel so tired. And we were all drunk and tired so... we went home at about 3 A.M. Such party animals, I know! *rolls eyes*
(little cultural note: here in Argentina, we usually party until the sunrises... EVERY WEEKEND. Yeah, so 3 AM is NOTHING!)
I had so much make-up on, removing it wasn't even funny.
(hope the video works)
And here we have a video in which I think I am taking a picture of myself and suddenly realize I was filming myself. You can see my "oh, I'm an idiot" expression in my eyes for a second there.
For some reason, I didn't take any GOOD pictures with a GOOD camera that night. I was running late to the party, so I rushed and didn't stop for pics at my house. I feel so sorry about it now. All that make-up and no good picture to make up for it (unintentional pun there).
Last gratuitous pics:
Before you ask, yeah, back-combing my waist-long hair is the most painful thing I have ever gotten done in my life. ...restoring it back to normal, that was self-torture right there. I had crazy amounts of hairspray on, too, because otherwise my hair tends to weight itself down.
Not pretty!! at all! At least I cut my hair shorter now. I feel so much lighter.
So yeah, that's it. What was your HalloWEEN like? :P
