Halloween

While Julia and Cara were off on their travels, the rest of y'all celebrated Halloween here in New York. Lacking the necessary planning required to coordinate costumes, we ended up with a random assortment of odds and ends. My favorite response to the endless Halloween inquiry "what are you dressed as?"...Eric's succinct "Fuck you!"
So don't ask!
We began our night in Jersey City at Rick and Pam's. Consummate hosts, they provided gory Halloween eats: quiche with maggots, head cheese sandwiches, cricket salad, along with lots of candy! Here we are - check out how upset Sameer is that Eric spilled beer on his pants, hee hee!

Next stop was a dance party in Williamsburg:

There was dancing,

superhero wedgies,

and a guy with a mutant undeveloped twin growing out of his head.

The people who had the best moves on the dance floor though, were Sameer's friend Agnes:

and a friend of hers who was dressed as a "my little pony pegasus." Hers was also my favorite costume of the night - both in terms of concept and execution (extra points for being homemade and for the overall color scheme). I managed to get pictures from the side (this is the way she posed when I asked if I could get a picture),

Costumes from the next party we went to.
Of the self-explanatory variety:

Of the natural history variety:

and of the wtf variety:

And I'm ending here with Monica, because hers was definitely the most popular costume of our group's that night. At least three separate people (if not more) came up to her to gush about it.

Love it! And Monica's costume is hilarious, though I think she should have shelled out for a mumu as well!!
