12:00AM West Village
Halloweekend is finally here and it was an interesting one to say the least. Who could of foreseen getting hit with a freak snow storm on one of the biggest party nights of the year. It is absolutely horrible all day with a mixture of bitter cold, sleet and snow. It seems as if the party gods are determined to ruin this night for everyone. As most girls dress in next to nothing I am slightly concerned that there will be a mass flake out. Luckily by midafternoon I am flooded with RSVPs and I am expecting a great crowd.
I hired a really talented makeup artist to my special effects makeup. I was going for Marv from the film Sin City. I had everything planned out and Jaqueline the EFX artist worked really hard on putting together a great face prosthesis. However, mother nature had other plans.
Jaqueline is based out of Long Island almost an hour train ride from NYC. After experiencing major delays to her train she finally boarded and was on her way, when disaster struck. Somewhere along the line the intense winds had knocked down a tree onto the track at the trains would not make it into Penn Station until it was cleared.
I’m extremely disappointed in our rotten luck but I am determined to make the best of it. I put together what I can to last minute to achieve the look I’m going for. I do a pretty decent job considering the circumstance but it is definitely lacking in detail.
I go down into the subway and head to our party. While I am waiting for the train to arrive I strike up a conversation with a woman also waiting for the train. She asks about my costume and I explain to her what it was and how I had a makeup artist booked but she was foiled by the weather. In what must me the biggest coincidence ever it turns out she is a makeup artist just coming from a job and offers to do an effect for me right there on the subway platform. I accept and can’t believe my good fortune.
I get to the party a little later than I expected and it is packed. I see a bunch of pretty good costumes but nothing mind blowing. Most of the girls are look amazing. Some are just dressed in as little as possible but others get really creative and still look sexy.
Everyone is having a really great time and I didn’t want the night to end. I seen some old friends I hadn’t seen in ages along with a bunch of my amazing regulars.
This really is the best party holiday in my opinion, everyone has the chance to be someone else for one night or three. Girls can dress as revealing as they like without fear of judgement from others.
It really was a night to remember and I’m already planning for next year! Enjoy the photos!!
