Halloween Midnight Madness
We helped host a Midnight Movie Madness event last night. It's the first year and was put together pretty quickly so we had a modest turnout, but I think it was a good start.
Apparently there were no prints of The Rocky Horror Picture Show to be had, so the theater booked a couple of pretty good horror films instead.
Volunteers were basically ornamental greeters. Christine and I were pretty much suburban Goth, I think, all black clothes looking relatively harmless. Christine made me leave off some black leather biker gloves--the kind with no fingers. (She took a somewhat uninspired picture of me, so the shot accompanying is self portrait.)
We had a pretty cool Dracula, some dead geishas and a Jasonesque person and a pimp in purple velvet.
Some of the patrons dressed up and some didn't, but of those who did had some cool looks.
I was dreading it all a little bit, but in the end it wound up being fun. Next year, I think I'll go as Pinhead.
