Happy Halloween!

I'm still recovering, but thought I'd throw up a few pictures from our weekend Halloween party!

A little calm before the storm...

Trader Joe's choco cake mix, yum!
Thanks to three separate shopping malls and many of your suggestions, I finally found a yellow jacket (clearance section of Macy's) and some yellow tights (Charlotte Russe)! And, by the way, colored tights are a lot of fun. I think I need more of them in my life.
Friend E, cosplaying 20th Century Boy's in the above photo, brought a bunch of silly sodas from Rocket Fizz.  Everything ranging from banana nut to bacon and in between.
Yes, even "Dear Leader" sodas.  Despite the label of "terrorizing taste", it had a fantastic orange cream flavor. :P
Other guests brought yummy salmon dip, and a new treat I've never had - halva! Which I can only think to describe as a more cake-textured Abba-Zabba.
Nut-topped salmon dip to the left, halva to the right.
For dinner we made a gigantoid pot of curry, and ordered a humongously-too-large tray of chicken katsu.  Add rice and some Riesling wine and we were all full of warm curry goodness.
I'm not kidding - party favors for everyone consisted of quart-sized bags of leftover chicken.  It was that much.
Frog-turtle puppeh.
Cousin T brought Hello Kitty Halloween tattoos and set up a parlor.
Everyone was required to get some kitty love. Even the manly-man-dudes.
Left to right, top to bottom: we had a bandit and a sheriff, a Norman Rockwell Peach Crop gal, a Cheshire cat, two psyducks, a crazy man, 20th Century Boys Friend, two pandas, two kimono gals, a frog-turtle and Storm Shadow from GI Joe.

Fun times! I died around 3:30 AM.  That's kind of embarrassing, but I'm no longer the college kid I used to be!
sleepy pandas!
By the way, I would definitely recommend the movie Bad Ronald.  It's very strange. Good in a bad way.  Or bad in a good way?  But you knew that - it's from the 70's, after all!

Hope you all have a great Halloween today! I'm hoping for lots of Trick-or-Treaters so I can hand out bags of fried chicken! ;)


  1. Love your pictures!! It looks like such fun! I carved a mini-Totoro (the white one) into my pumpkin this weekend, but that was about it. Hoping to leave work early so as not to miss the little kiddie trick-or-treaters tonight!

  2. OMG Sleepy pandas. Adorable. I wish Tebow was more into the Halloween theme. It would be awesome.

  3. Looks like you had a great party! Those cupcakes with the candy corn topper are too cute :) Happy Halloween!

  4. Looks like such a fun party!! I'm getting old too, I was so tired around 3 am.

  5. looks and sounds like so much fun! love the pac-man ghosts. and of course i die over the shiba panda (or at least it looks like a shiba inu). 3:30, that's CRAZY!

  6. Can I come ring your doorbell? I'd LOVE KATSU chicken instead of candy!! :D

    Where does one order a large tray of katsu chicken?

  7. @alvina- we got it from this small cater place called happy chef in millbrae.

    @pug- yep, cute shiba inus!

  8. Candy corn?? LOVING IT. That is the best Halloween candy of them all.

  9. This looks like a fantastic halloween party and I can't wait to see more bright coloured tights from you! The cupcakes with the candy corn are too cute :D

  10. WOW! We so would've loved this party - chicken katsu and curry!!!!!! Also, Dave loves 20th Century Boys and would've thought your friend's costume was AMAZING. Looks like so much fun! Sorry we missed it!


Your thoughts - go!
