The time has finally come for me to share my Halloween pictures! I've been a bit stressed at work the last couple of days so I've been keeping away from any sort of interaction with civilization and instead spending a lot of time doing basic human needs like eating and sleeping in my past time.
I was dressed up as an anime character.My make up took 45 minutes to do and I was rather proud of it. It didn't want to stay on too well in some areas though and I had to keep touching it up.
I already mentioned before that Karl won the costume competition at work. He was dressed up as Two Face. He kept joking he was also portraying Michael Jackson.
The office party was at a place called The Howlin' Moon. Once we arrived at the bar, we met up with lovely Sam and Ger, they both work on Karl's desk. Sam didn't want me to take any pictures of her so I had to settle of one of her cute shoes.
The bar was made up in a "scary" way. It looked ok but looked dreadful (in a bad way) once caught on picture. I guess the darkness and people being drunk was supposed to do the most of the effect. It was a decent place though. I noticed that the chandeliers seemed to had real cobwebs, no extra effects needed there...
José was at the party. I'm not quite sure what he dressed up as, but that's ok seeing as he's such a nice guy. He works on my desk. So does Tuula, seen in the picture below. She is great, she makes me laugh a lot, as we seem to share the exact same humour. When she makes me laugh by saying incredibly funny things, my laughter can be heard throughout the office as we sit in a separate room, and José finds this very endearing.
Tuula crept up behind me at some point of the evening and totally blew me away with her cosume. Had I not heard her speak, I would not have recognized her. I think she had the best costume of the evening!
Karl's costume consisted of a cheap looking jacket which was bought from a costume shop, and a little project of a shirt; I took two of his shirts and I cut them in half and sew them together. It pays off to be dating a seamstress.
I was attacked by a spider!
Sam was dressed as an evil witch and Ger was portraying Mario. His feet looks like dwarf feet in this picture. We all thought it was hilarious, as the costume made him look very small to begin with, as he was drowning in it.
Tuula found time to pose with her pals.
In the close up you can see that Karl had half of his head shaved. A little detailed which went unnoticed by a lot of people, as the makeup somehow seemed to distract them...
Stefano who works in the 2nd Level Team was dressed up as a vampire!
And so were a bunch of other guys as well!
José, Tuula and me. I had to keep closing my eyes in all the pictures, as the effect of my costume would otherwise be lost!
This is.... well, I have no idea who this is. I was going to take a picture of a great costume that a girl was wearing, but then the Joker walked by and watermarked my picture.
There aren't too many pictures from later that evening, as I was too busy dancing. I was enclosed in a very little pocket of excistance, between happy, dancing people, dancing my own heart away. I am sure I'm not the best dancer and I probably looked stupid, but this was not any type of worry for me at the time. It's been quite a long time since I've been dancing and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
I hope you had as much fun during Halloween as I did!
