I’m nearing the final stretch of this insane month that just might swallow me whole, but I made it a point to squash my work woes for a night and go out for pre-Halloween. Even though we don’t see each other as often as we should, Jess, Desiree and I always put effort into reuniting for this holiday. It’s become our dear tradition to (tastefully and creatively) hooch it up like we’re 22 again.
This year, I think, wins it all.
Sake (me), Tamago (Des), Ebi (Jess, who despite what this picture shows, does not have a glass eye)
At first, I didn’t want to be sushi (it was Des’ idea) mostly because I have some weird, deep-rooted issues with Asian-ish costumes, but eventually, I realized, OMG, this is gonna rule.
My sole responsibility was to make the wasabi headbands and, if I may ask, SQUEEEEEEE, aren’t they awesome?!?!
Jess made the fish, seaweed belts and ginger earrings. She is amazing.
We went to a Halloween party at a club and everyone loved us (once they figured out what we were) and boys wanted to “eat” us (ew) and we had a blast. We couldn’t enter the costume contest, which majorly sucked, but we still went home giggly and proud.
The best part of the night, as I somehow expected, was getting ready together in my bedroom.
There were plenty of puns:
“Hurry up, we’ve gotta roll!”
“Don’t worry, we’re just doing this tempura-rily.”
“Something seems very fishy.”
“We’ve reached the point of nori turn.”
Okay, so some of these I thought of later. I’m not that quick and witty.
Anyway, the night was just what I needed to get through the rest of this week. Happy pre-Halloween!
