It was really difficult to think of a character that I wanted to be for Halloween since I didn't have much time to prepare. I originally thought of coming as Luigi from the Mario Brothers but then again, I didn't know where I could find a jumper for a 6 ft tall person and I thought it would be a common choice for a lot of geeks. LOL. I also considered being Timmy Turner since it's pretty easy to accomplish(Pink hat, Pink shirt) then I saw the perfect costume for me while browsing the interent. I found this Jughead Jones costume (Jughead is a character from the Archie comics) and I thought I looked pretty awesome. I like Jughead. He's my favorite character in Archie.
So with this inspiration, I started looking for stuff that I could use for Jughead's whoppee hat. I found a tutorial online that involved a fedora hat. I inverted the fedora hat and started cutting the sides to make it look like a whoppee hat.
I met up with Paul at Glorietta since we had to wait for Kristian (who bleached his hair by the way!). When he arrived we all walked to Ted's condo and prepared for the Halloween Party. There we also met Ron. :-)
Anyway, this is what I looked like
At 11pm we decided to go to Attica at A-venue. It was awkward to see another Jughead at the party and he had an Archie with him too :-| I really thought that I would be the only one to go as Jughead :-( We weren't able to take a lot of photos cause Ted accidentally left the memory card of his dSLR at the condo. Anyway, after one round of beer we decided to leave since it was really getting boring there and too crowded.

Highlight of Attica: Seeing that chic in the Tron costume and the 101 dalmatians with Cruella DeVille. Haha.
We then decided to go to Cubao X cause we felt the crowd there would be more fitting for us. Haha. And indeed, we enjoyed it a lot more than Attica. Cheap beer, great crowd, good music, and it was really spacious. I even saw a lot of tumblr/twitter friends there for the first time. Too bad I wasn't able to get photos with them.
Highlight of Cubao X: People calling me Jughead cause they loved my costume! LOL Seeing Jon Snow and a lot of online friends. AND!!! Having this photo taken with Adele. Haha.
|Jughead, Adele, Danny Phantom, Harry Potter, Pirate Ron!|
