Halloween is my favorite event of the year because this is the time when everyone can dress up as their alter ego or put on a character... which makes partying more than twice as fun.
I wished I was in Key West, FL, where they have Fantasy Fest and everyone dresses up everyday for the whole week of Halloween. Then again, partying in Singapore is also fun, especially when you have all your friends to celebrate it with you. My sister came back to Singapore for 4 days before going back to Tokyo on Sunday. Both of us didn't enjoy staying in Singapore very much while we were growing up here, but after traveling/living in other countries, we really began to appreciate it so much more... ♥
Anyway, last year's (2008) Halloween at Mimolette was so much fun... I dressed up as a military nurse:
I bought the costume in Bangkok (Platinum Wholesale Shopping Mall) for about S$50. It's funny how you won't find a sex store in Bangkok but they sell so many sexy costumes such as this for a much lower price than what you will find at any other sex stores. I have about 20 costumes, some I've already worn but still intend to keep, and some that are just waiting to be worn for the perfect occasion. What can I say? I love themed parties.
I was really getting bored of all the costumes I saw online so I came up with an ingenious idea of making my own.
- FRIDAY NIGHT HALLOWEEN DRESS-UP -
Princess Jasmine from Aladdin:
Dawn tagged a photo of Princess Jasmine as me on Facebook a while back and after watching the DVD again recently, it's hard not to want to be a princess for a day. Hehe.
That cartoon is then translated to...
Aladdin & Princess Jasmine
I bought the chiffon fabric from a store on Arab Street for just $3/m. The bikini is from River Island (which I already had initially), earrings from Diva (S$15) and the blue jewel piece is from Spotlight.
My sister (was dressed as a wine lady a.k.a. 'Fine Red Wine') and I went to Mimolette on Friday night for the 'Asian Damnation' party (Asian horror theme). Even Aladdin was there!
Alot of people were dressed up, considering it was only the eve of Halloween. I love how Mimolette always never fail to surprise me for Halloween.
My sister, Alyssa, & I dropped by Butterfactory before going home (it was along the way, really) and I don't remember seeing anyone there dressed up that Friday night...
- SATURDAY NIGHT HALLOWEEN DRESS-UP -
Slave Princess Leia from Star Wars:
This is then translated to...
Obi-Wan Kenobi & Princess Leia
I bought the chiffon fabric from Spotlight for $9.95/m! I am never going back there again. If you want to buy cheap fabric to make your costume, go to Arab Street. It's like a treasure hunt! The gold bikini & belt are from a shop at Far East Plaza, snake earrings are from Diva, boots are from YesStyle.com and the (Victoria's Secret) silk robe was something I already had. I made the neck chain thing with a slim gold belt and some gold chain.
5 of my friends (4 of them are DJs) and I organized a junk boat party to kickstart our Halloween night. It's probably the first ever junk boat party in Singapore. Junk boat parties are huge in Hong Kong & San Francisco and unlike these countries, it's summer in Singapore all year long, so this is definitely something that is needed to make our nightlife more interesting. We had about 140 of our close friends and we all had a great time. It drizzled a bit and I was so sad that we didn't manage to catch the sunset. However, we did get to see the beautiful fireworks and colorful musical fountain show at the Sentosa. I hope everyone had a splendid time!
Gettin' on the boat!

The people who made it magical: Neill Brown (on my left), Chris Wiedmann (on my right) and me:
And yeah, Chris and the guy on the far left are dressed up as the characters from the movie 'The Hangover".
After the cruise, we went to stereolab for more fun.
The official after-party @ stereolab.
After stereolab, a group of friends and I headed to Butterfactory to catch up with some friends.
Obviously, these guys were inspired by their own bedroom. The Hoover Vacuum Girl came up to me and said she was a fan of my blog. How sweet ...and what a creative idea!
This was taken at about 1.30am. Alyssa had a flight back to Tokyo to catch at 6am
It was so crowded at Butterfactory and EVERYBODY was dressed up. Oh, I love Halloween.
