Hallowe'en 2006

Last night I was at a Hallowe'en party for the first time in years. It was a total hoot, and I have to admit that there is nothing like dressing up in a fancy dress costume to lower people inhibitions and have a rip-snorting good time (yes, I tried my first ever jello shooters).

This is me...minus the lifejacket (which I did wear periodically through the night, but it was a tad hot for dancing). I went as the Unsinkable Molly Brown (survivor from the Titanic) ...hence the period costume, glittering jewels, evening gloves ....and the ten gallons of gel in my hair to maintain that "wet look". The blue hypothermic lips unfortunately wore off after the first beer.

And I met a lot of wonderful people...like William "Braveheart" Wallace here.

And this chap...well...erm....yes....an original costume for sure. Watching him shuffle around with his pants around his ankles all night was amusing to say the least.

One thing though...only a crazy person...would be daft...nay, stupid...nay, INSANE enough to wear new high heels to such an event. Thank heavens we don't know anyone who matches that description...eh?
