GameForge decided to have a Halloween party cum first year anniversary a few days earlier and there was a costume contest as well, best dressed male and female walks away with RM50. Sure, it might not sound alot but to a poor person like me, it was enough to make my eyes sparkle. (In case you're wondering why I'm consistently broke; I'm still paying my iLasik surgery and my tickets to Hong Kong and I got 3 wedding dinners in October, November and December)
On the day itself and just a few hours to the party, I still haven't decided on what to wear. Out of idea, started whinning to JH and we started going thru any ideas at all. A marionette? (Didn't have any cute fluffy dresses) A nurse? (Wanted to borrow Elisa's costume but she was working) A ganguro? (Uhh.. in public with my face looking like that? No way, Jose) A witch? (Boring, no idea where my damned hat went) A maid? (Last year's costume)
If there's one thing I dislike about Penang is that there isn't any costume shops that we can rent outfits from or even a costume shop. ARGH! It's either you get creative or go Toys R Us and get those fluffy sparkly cutsey wings . Hell, if those fluffy sparkly cutsey wings that comes with a size 2 shoes and tiara can fit me, I'll buy it! Unfortunately for me, my feet is a good size 6 and the wings are for kids. I'll look like a hippopotamus with sparkly butterfly wings.
Out of ideas, I put on my last year's maid's costume, hoping to put a fresh twist to it, maybe a blond wig or something and black leggings. Yes, I'm not the most creative person around. Was a little depressed since I really wanted the money. Oops, did my greediness shined through..
Just for a laugh, I put on my 'cowboy' hat and JH commented how it actually fit the costume, so that was it, I became a weird gothic cowgirl or something.. *sigh*
These shots are all candid so obviously I'll look a little goofy in some. Wish I had a little warning in some but luckily no shots of me scratching my ass or digging my nose :D
Not that I was doing those..
JH decided to ignore me and played Warhammer 40k instead. Me on the other hand, spilled beer on model terrains, tried chopping up the models and finally decided to go pull off my lower eyelashes cause they were damned annoying.
End of party, round up friends to threaten GameGorge's GM into giving me the money. And he really hands them over. Yay! I.R.RM50 richer!
To be truthful, I only won cause I was the only idiot who dress up. Seriously. Last year there was a bunch of people dressing up and all but this year, the clubhouse guys were all busy getting drunk at a bachelor party that hardly anyone came. Sad.
I really felt like a big fat idiot. My original costume was actually underneath my shirt but since no one bothered, I didn't even remove my shirt.
Oh well, I'm a slightly richer idiot atleast. Hee heee!
Luckily I remembered to put on my contacts before we left. It's almost a month and I've only wore it once. Gotta make my money's worth.
