Happy Halloween 2014!
I've always loved the idea of halloween ever since I was exposed to the whole concept of it through movies and stories. The whole anticipation of deciding what to dress up as, and having one whole night to roam around neighbourhoods demanding for candy from strangers (the only time its okay to accept candy from strangers). This goes without saying but obviously, 'trick or treat'-ing isn't probably going to happen in Medan for awhile considering how our houses are located and how uptight and strict medanese parents are. As if my mom would ever let me out at night dressing up as tinker bell going door to door for candies when I was 8 years old. Even if she did, people would most likely stare and shoo me away instead of having a basket of sweets ready to for me. Sigh. This is one of the many reasons why my childhood is wasted in this place.
Our school had a Halloween 'party' last Friday that was mainly arranged by the prefects team, me included, although the only help I contributed to the event was scooping away all the gooey slime from the deformed pumpkins. I feel like this 'party' only acts as an excuse for the whole school to dress up cause it honestly did not feel like one. It was basically half of the school awkwardly standing around the MPH in their own clusters under the dim lightning, not much of 'partying' going on. I, being the lazy uncreative girl I am, ended up going as a cat after hoping I'd come up with something more unique and failing. But really, all you need is a pair of cat ears and there'll be no confusion on what you're dressing up as.
I have to admit I came mostly for the cool pictures of me and my friends dressed up as different characters so here are some I've managed to snag from my friends' phones because my iPod's camera quality is starting to disappoint.
Bryan the chinese mafia
Me and Winny both went as cats+ Zennia as Zoe Benson
Jerrick as Gomez Addams
When the camera flash makes everyone look drunk, put on a black and white filter.
Julian as Jigsaw
Me and Nick. I forgot what he dressed up as but it involved a cigarette hanging between his lips
Cat girl and Zoe Benson
Justin went as this character from this one movie that I can't remember, but he wore a really cool mask
Ryo has no idea what he dressed up as either hahaha
Calvin a.k.a Jack Skellington (?) ( This is the only picture taken with my iPod and you can clearly see the vast difference in quality. This is me indirectly telling my Mom I need a phone hehe)
Hope you all had a great Halloween cause I kinda did
