I wanted to do a Diwali post, but after I read Hamza's article on Almost News, everything else Diwali-related paled in comparison, so instead I have decided on another topic, Halloween.
I think it is quite sad that we are not able to enjoy this event as much as our American counterparts. Ok, before you start boycotting my blog for pro-American propaganda, I don't really like America, I just like the concept of Halloween. The dressing up in scary costumes, collecting candy, evenings filled with horror movies, what's not to like?
My favorite site, collegehumor.com, recently had a costume competition, and from a few of the costumes I have seen, these guys are really dedicated to the whole costume thing. If you boycott Coke and stuff, you won't want to visit the site, it is very American. Anyway here are the top 3 costumes at collegehumor:
This finished third, and if you haven't guessed by now, it's the 300 army. I don't think there are 300 people there, but give them a break man, that guy has alot of guts to be posing in a diaper.
Holy mother of awesome! This costume is so great, you have to wonder if this came second, what could beat it. This is from the greatest game of the year, Bioshock, and its accuracy is absolutely dead on.
This is the winner, not better than the Bioshock one, but the competition was open to public voting, which makes it a popularity contest. This is Bender from Futurama, attention to detail is awesome again. Apparently the door at his front opens and you can put beers(or your choice non-alcoholic beverage, maybe Creras) in it.
If I had to go to costume party and dress up, I would go as an Igor, complete with hunchback, dead leg and lithp. Or I would take Collegehumors idea of a last minute costume, take a mouse(the electronic kind) and hold it on my face, and go as a mousepad.
Till next time in Waseem world
