God, I love Halloween! It's the start of my favorite part of the year, mainly Halloween through New Year's. Yes, I love the weather, the hecticness of it all, the food, and seeing a lot of people in fun party situations.
Last night the husbitch and I got out to two parties...Mudsock had a pumpkin-carving soiree up in his neck of the suburbs, and Rough Draft studios had their annual Halloween funfest. We were the only ones dressed up at Mudsock's, but everyone seemed to enjoy our Big Lebowski themed outfits. Well, they said they did, at any rate.
Rough Draft is known for putting on a good party, and they didn't disappoint this year. Originally they were planning on a roller-skating themed shindig, but that fell through, so they went with a Crime Syndicate theme. The costumes were fantastic, tuned to the party theme or not. We were impressed, as we saw some other Big Lebowski fans, too:
Here we have the Dude("The Dude is not in!"), Maude("What do you do for recreation?"), and the Jesus("You said it, man.")taking time out of their busy quoting schedules to take a quick pic.
The Dude("Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."), the Dude("Hey, careful man, there's a beverage here!"), and Maude("Lord. You can imagine where it goes from here."). Note the Dudes and their caucasians.
Here's Maude("Don't be fatuous, Jeffrey.")and "Rikki Wreakardo" of the "Los Angeles Rolling Blackouts". There's a little sub-group within the Derby Dolls that call themselves the Rolling Blackouts. There's also a local band called the Rolling Blackouts. What a damned good name, I guess. There was a whole derby team of "Rolling Blackouts" last night, and they had some fun skate names. My favorite was "Helen Killer". If that name isn't already taken by a real derby girl I'll go into shock.
