This time last year I was getting ready to take part in the biggest Halloween parade in the world. Where else but New York City?!
I had already planned my outfit and as a make-up lover I needed no better excuse to get creative with my 'Glampire' look!
I had bought silver fangs, but they wouldn't stay in.
So I spent a lovely few hours in the afternoon getting dressed and apply layers of make up and glitter and, for the first time ever, fake eyelashes.
I went out of my apartment door, turned right and walked the few blocks to Times Square to meet up with my friend.
I was early, or he was late. No, he was definitely late. So I kinda just hung around. However, being the tourist hot spot it is, I was soon being approached, "Can I get my photo taken with you?" asked one lady. "Sure!"
But that seemed to trigger off other tourists and within a few minutes there was a line of people queuing to have their photos take with me. I thought it was hilarious! Of course I hated ever minute, being so shy n all ;)
I definitely missed a trick though, I should have brought a 'tip' purse out with me! :D
Making my way downtown on the subway....
Now, what should be inserted here is a video of the Halloween Parade BUT my video software is playing up tonight and I've run out of patience with it. So instead, a few photos...
|Segway - one way to get around the parade!|
|Fantasic, Mr Fox!|
|I see (saw) youuuu!|
|Such a cute trio|
The weekend before I spent an evening with the Disgraceland Family who gave me a very warm welcome.
Want more of the self called freaks? Here they are!
I also made a video of the crazy night!
