Boo!

Hallowe’en is always fun. Although originally we don’t have the holiday here in Indonesia, nowadays upper-middle class city dwellers like to celebrate it. For most Asians Hallowe’en is the time for girls to go out and dress like tarts. But hey, in a way all of us have that phase. Who am I to judge?
I’m walking down memory lane. Years have passed and the senses still linger. Remembering Hallowe’en 2010 in a pub slash tapas bar called La Bodega in Taichung City.
As usual with parties in Taiwan, most of the guests were foreigners. There were some Taiwanese girls wearing skimpy outfits, no surprise, of course. There were also young Taiwanese people dressed as Chinese dolls, murderous-looking transvestite — which I really liked — and plenty of Japanese anime costplay. It was east meet west in a childishly eerie night.
Below are my favourite shots from that night. And as Ministry always say… “Everyday is Hallowe’en”.

DSC06475my second favourite after the Calaca costume; a tall caucasian guy dressing as Zhu Ge Liang (豬哥亮), a famous Taiwanese comedian, with pale-faced dolls on each side. this is kitsch to the max
