Last year, I dressed up as slave Princess Leia for Halloween in Singapore so this year I decided to dress a little more conservatively since I heard that Malaysians don't really dress up for Halloween (or any special events for that matter)! I had all the time to even make my own costume for the Princess Leia outfit (Read: Making My Own Halloween Costume 2009) but this year I got kinda lazy so I just rented instead...
Slave Princess Leia, 2009
The Jedi who killed Darth and stole his lightsaber, 2010
The costume store only had Darth's lightsaber left so I didn't have much choice. The total rent for our costume was RM170 and it came with 2 Jedi tunics, 2 pants, 2 Jedi robes, 2 sashes, 1 lightsaber and a pair of boots. Not bad, I think! Charles obviously made advanced planning and ordered his lightsaber a few months ago on Firebox.com ¬_¬
I somehow convinced Dawn to come to KL for Halloween and she stayed with me on Saturday night and flew back to Singapore on Sunday morning. She came solely to party with us on Halloween but we were all pretty disappointed in the Halloween spirit here in KL... Nothing beats Halloween anywhere in the States. FANTASYFEST in Key West, I missed you!
Helenness, in the other Wonder Woman outfit, dressed up for Halloween for the first time (a fine example that Malaysians don't dress for Halloween) I'm so happy to have picked out your first costume, Helen!
Our favorite photo of the night taken in the lift of my apartment!
As you can see from the top left corner in the photo below - MOST OF THE GUYS who went to Zouk on Saturday night didn't dress up.
The people who DID dress up were mostly girls... (and talents who were paid by Zouk).
Costume of the night goes to the girl who dressed up as Katy Perry in 'California Gurls' with giant cupcakes as her bra top... I wasn't expecting that one!
We had another friend who also came as a Jedi... It made me wished we had a whole group of Star Wars characters - Jedis, Luke Skywalker, Storm Troopers, Darth, Princess Leia, Yoda and ALL!
We MADE the party that night, it almost didn't feel like Halloween at all when we entered Phuture (sure, Zouk had all the decorations but the spirit -no pun intended- wasn't there)...

Did you see Heidi Klum's extravagant and totally over the top ALIEN TRANSFORMER outfit she wore for her annual Halloween party in New York? It made me wonder - did she hold in her pee throughout the whole event? I mean, that outfit isn't exactly an easy slip on, slip off...
She and her husband, Seal always has the craziest costumes... Gotta love their enthusiasm!
