HAPPY HALLOWEEN PEOPLES!
For those who don’t know, I am lucky enough to live in New York City. Now there are some negatives to living here. Everything costs about 300% more than everywhere else, the DMV is a nightmare (even more than the usual nightmare), and I have witneesed a grown man willingly and openly shitting himself on the train (He actually told my friend Alex “wanna see something cool?” Then he shat himself.)
But for all of New York City’s “charms”, there is no other place on earth I’d rather be on Halloween. The Greenwich Village Halloween Parade is quite simply amazing. You see the most creative, outrageous, sexy, offensive, and authentic looking costumes on earth. I have made it a tradition of mine to go every year. This year will be my fourth year in a row (I was in the army the year before). I don’t often do photoblogs, but I’ve decided to share some of my favorite pics from the last four years with you.
2005- GIT ER’ DONE!
That year was a lot of fun. My costume did not have a particular name. I just wanted to wear a mullet, a handlebar moustache, and my “This is my fucking halloween costume” shirt. I ran around the city all night screaming “whoo, git er done!” That old dude in the cheerleader outfit was awesome by the way.
First there’s Fred and I, followed by me and Ron Burgundy. I was so excited to see Ron. I love Anchorman.
Some random scantily clad women, followed by an appearance by the GEICO caveman (This was before they got played out)
What an awesome Marilyn Manson that was. These clowns were cool too.
Two of my favorites that year. Optimus Prime and SALT N’ PEPA! I tried to do alot of mime poses in my pics, but I noticed after that I ended up doing mostly the same two poses all night.
2007 – IT’S MY DICK IN A BOX…
Aww this was fun. My boy Fred and I were singing the song and doing the dance all night.The second pic is my boy Joe trying to eat my box (commence dirty jokes everyone).
Isn’t that Hellboy real looking! Man that one was cool. Also check out the breakfast cereal celebs.
Hey girl… I got something real special to give to you.
LEGO WEDDING! Man those were good. Next there’s me getting off the train. Notice the strings. The coolest part about my costume was that I could make my box sag or stand up on command. I had fun with that.
There is my pale friend Mike as Luke Skywalker, followed by me propositioning a witch. Ahhh that costume was oh so much fun. I still know the dance and the words by heart.
Guess you guys will have to come back and see…
