Halloween 2007 Recap Part 2

For the pictures, I originally had this brilliant idea that I’d take photos of everyone and put them in these little pulp horror settings so that it would be different from everyone else’s post. I started out with a good head of steam, but after a while, had to resort to stealing Bossy’s technique for her photoblogging instead. So, that’s why they’re so inconsistent. Some of the photos are after the jump, and you can see all 300 of the photos, in an unsorted, jumbled mess, on Flickr.

    I love the pictures!! You threw one hell of a party, and I’m really sorry that we couldn’t make it. I’ll plan in advance for next year.

    Also, our wife looks freaky in the lighting that you took those pictures in. I’d be afraid. πŸ™‚ Plus, I think jigsaw could totally take the zombie, and she’s a lot cuter than the zombie!

  2. hellohahanarf

    damn, bubba, you sure do go all out for a party. somehow i think next year you will wind up with 200+ at the party.

    love what you did to the pool. fucken awesome decorations all the way around. great job!

    so, did you notice the orbs in the one food / kitchen photo? i can easily see at least 3. you have ghosts you didn’t invite to the party?

  3. Jennifer

    Those have got to be some of the best Halloween shots EVAH!

    Do you normally get a lot of commenter’s? I seem to be distracted by the bouncing boobies and walking ass. Some of your male commenter’s may never get past the “click for smilies” page.

  4. Y2K Survivor

    My name was not on the list… Cockslapping Monkeyfucker.

    Hey the decorations looked fantastic! We used to do a huge month long horror trail as a fund raiser for area recovery programs. And we tried a spook house this summer during a commuity festival (lost our ass on money but it was the best spook event we EVER did!) Anyway, I know a bit about it and you decorations kicked ass. I love the boarding up your doors and windows to keep zombies out. Excellent touch!

  5. SleepyNita

    You need to post the videos, they have to be pretty funny!

    Party looks awesome, you (and your boss -Amy) know how to throw one wicked ass party. I do not think that I have ever been to a halloween party as over the top as yours!

  6. BOSSY

    Holy shit, perusing all those photos made Bossy totally exhausted. It would have just been easier to come to the damn party.

    (And she is so very sorry she missed it.)

    (The only thing on gah’s green earth you were missing? A Kitty-litter cake. How does Bossy know? She ate one.)

  7. Avitable

    Amanda, he actually made it, airbrushing it himself and attaching all of the little rhinestones.

    Jester, you might have clashed with the other gay men at the party. It would have been a throwdown!

    BPR, well, it’s your name, but it’s also someone else’s name, too. I dyed the pool red.

    Michael, it actually filters out over about two days all by itself.

    Carolyn, you could also say “HOT DAMN!” That works, too.

    Girl, Dislocated, it was cleaned up by Monday afternoon – it wasn’t as bad as it seems.

    Peggy, I had you on there just in the off chance you decided to come. You should have, though.

    Dan, or, you could just eat food coloring and then let your toilet get dyed naturally.

    Angel, yeah, she looks very freaky, and she wasn’t even in costume!

    Mr. Fabulous, I don’t remember if you were there or not – I only did one song.

    Mike, the zombies got you!

    Robin, thanks!

    Turnbaby, I’ll get them up later.

    ADW, only if you do it naked.

    Clown, thanks for all the help – you definitely had one of the top costumes there.

    Metalmom, it wasn’t all me, but thanks.

    Britt, this does not surprise me.

    Poppy, I meant to put your name on there, actually. Time got away from me.

    Hello, I did see the orbs. And they’re clearly dust. I’m a cynical ghost hunter.

    Jennifer, I get a lot of lurkers, but the people who truly love me comment.

    NYCWD, all of these things are completely true.

    Fabulous, is that why it was all sticky? The brie, I mean.

    RockDog, it definitely was.

    Tug, yeah, I’ll do it.

    Memphis Steve, everyone in the blogosphere was invited!

    Y2K, thanks – it was fun to do, and I was very happy with how it turned out.

    Crystal, you could have come. We would have had even more fun!

    Carmen, no, I did not. I’m not that crazy.

    Annie, I used an official pool dye that filters out over two days. It doesn’t stain or anything.

    Amy, thanks – maybe next year, you’ll leave your house and come visit all of us.

    Matt, thanks for coming, and it was nice to meet you. You made a good accidental Hal Jordan.

    SleepyNita, we did go over the top, and it was well worth it.

    Bossy, maybe next year?? And I don’t know if I could eat a kitty litter cake. Ew!

  8. Peggy

    I totally should have. That way, I would have been there having fun instead of walking around saying “I wonder what those fuckers are doing now” over and over.

    My husband almost punched me so I’d shut the fuck up.

  9. Karen Rani

    I say next year Jessica and I bring our feisty sister/cousin* Shannon and you two can duke it out in the pool. πŸ˜‰

    *Jess’ sister, my cousin – we’re not inbreeds…

  10. Avitable

    Poppy, I just got confused between which name to put up there, that’s all!

    Janna, that’s okay – all are invited.

    Peggy, yup. You don’t live that far away that you couldn’t have dropped by!

    Crazy, it was.

    CP, oh yeah? What do you call this:

    Party

    and this:

    Party

    Kelley, it’s about time somebody finally said what we’ve all been thinking.

    Karen, you two can come. Shannon can stay in the car.

    Shelli, there’s a 90% chance we’re doing it next year. And it will be the Saturday before Halloween.

    DB, coming from Dutchyland, I expect full frontal nudity.

  11. Weary Hag

    Gotta tell you … I spent WAYYYY too much time here as a first-time visitor this early morning. Had a blast during my stay. Thanks for the great entertainment. See that? You’re still entertaining and the party’s long over.

    Excellent pics, props, foods, and post!
