Happy Halloween, etc. On Saturday night I went to this party Death Rites at the Gateway. Last time I was there I ran into my friend Jamie Peck and she told me she was doing her Halloween party there. I had a weird time at the last time I went to one of her Halloween parties so I figured it was something to do… and it was.
My old pal Lauren Flax was DJing and there were a bunch of bands playing. I only saw two of them because I got there after midnight like an asshole. I saw Bootblacks and Xeno & Oaklander I think but I mostly spent my time on the roof because my costume was far too hot to wear inside.
I had no plans to dress up and I have been half-assing Halloween since like 2007 when I bleached my hair and cut it into a mullet to go as MacGyver. There is a new (and truly terrible) MacGyver on TV right now but I didn’t quite have it in me. But I do happen to have a terrifying spiked baseball bat that I actually carved myself for a college sculpture class and I did just get an amazing leather jacket… When I combined those two things with my roommates scarf and a gallon of hair product I ended up with a pretty convincing Negan costume which is probably the best costume I have had since I was Freddy Kruger when I was 8. Unfortunately they wouldn’t let me in The Gateway with a terrifying weapon so my costume wasn’t quite as flawless as I wanted it to be. If you don’t know who Negan is and you feel like having one of the biggest moments of The Walking Dead ruined for you, please click here.
I am probably gonna go out again just so I can wear my Negan costume again but I kinda think I might just dress like him from now on… Maybe I will just roam the streets threatening strangers with a baseball bat until the cops show up.
Oh, right there was a party that I went to and there are photos to look at. Oh, and there was a make out coffin. That seems important somehow.
