Halloween came and went, pretty quickly, but it was a good few days of celebrating. Firstly, it was the Spooktacular event at the school I work at, a fun arrangement, where the school was decorated rather elaborately And this years theme was Disney, So there were some beautiful decorations and people with fun costumes I really wanted to dress as Sadness from Inside out, But then
I saw this lady’s outfit and It was just so awesome, and I felt like I couldn’t pull it off. I didn’t have the budget to buy a costume this year so I just put together something to look like kinda something.
Yep. A pirate. Pirates of the Caribbean is Disney you know? So. I look pretty decent, right? Well, I sweated so much from working that my stash fell off and I had to put on a fake beard instead. And I must say… I looked pretty hansome as a man. Monitoring the halls, trying to prevent the kids from running in the halls, after eating loads and loads of candy… The teachers had fun, playfighting with students, taking photos, running around. And there was even a classroom designated to SMORES! So we sat around the small fires, toasting our marshmallows, and making smores and chowing down the sweets. It was so cozy. It was pretty fun seeing the very cool principle of the school dressed up in his tourist getup. And this student, who allowed me to take a picture of him in his incredibly well done Edward Scissorhands outfit. There was a gameroom, outside on the patio you could get popcorn, cotton candy, candie apples, hotdogs etc. And there were costume contests and lots and lots of fun. Then on Halloween itself I was invited by my friend Heather, who I met on the set of an HBO pilot working as background, to join her friends at her house, and then going on to a bar. They had dressed up as “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” which I only know from Family guy, and I put on my Harry Potter Student outfit, which I wish I could wear everyday anyway. And we headed to the bar. Hollywood on Halloween was just packed with tourists, a lot of police, and the regular costumed people that are there everyday taking photos for tips. But Santa Monica, and the bar we went to was pretty Halloweeny. And to my surprise, the West side comedy club, Was the SAME comedy place I went to, all those years ago when I first went to LA, and hung around with the guys I met at the hostel, around the time I auditioned for the Groundlings!!

There are pictures from the very same place faaaar down in the blog post! It’s so crazy ! I hardly ever go down there! There was Live Band Karaoke, which was fun, a small haunted house inside, and everyone were dressed up, dancing and singing. Heather is a pretty cool chick, she’s a lifestyle model, and is super fit, but she’s also a gigantic nerd, gamer and just an allround cool person. It was a great time. At the end of the night (midnight….yeah… I know..) I was pretty tired, and made my way home. Hope you all had a great Halloween.
