This year we recruited our friends Joe & Renee Belardo and set out to win the elusive $1,000 group costume prize at Vapor Night Club in Saratoga Springs. After much debate, we decided to go as....Occupy Vapor protesters!
Now, just to clarify...we were not really protesting, as some of the people in the club thought we were, or serious in the least about our 'political' statement. Can't you tell from our messages...that have glitter on them?
Unfortunately, Joe gave Brett the idea that he needed to have a drum...which he pounded on all. night. long.
It probably would have been really annoying if we could have stopped laughing as his unintentional Corey Haim resemblance.
In case you missed it on the news, the weather in the Northeast didn't really cooperate with Halloween this year.
The good (or bad) news: when there's snow falling, there's fewer slutty costumes to gawk at. Girls up North have to wear actual clothes for Halloween. Turns out, the guys don't.
Again competition was fierce in the costume contest. There were some really great outfits that we got...
...and some that we didn't? Halloween balloon girl won a cool $1,000 for that getup though...uh, what ever it was.
Our Occupy Vapor apparently didn't go over very well with the judges...but we figured that was just the man trying to keep us down. Plus, our arms were killing us after holding protest signs for an hour and a half before the competition began.
With big money on the line, folks brought their A-games. This light up robot cashed in $1K for best male.
The group costume contest was a bit sketch this year though...we read the contest rules online before hand and to enter the group you had to have three (3) people. But when they announced the finalist, there were several "groups" picked that only had two (2). The top ten was narrowed down to a top three and the audience cheered for their favorite.
|The Harlem "Old" Trotters|
|These folks were all "Invasion of NYC"...with huge, crazy elaborate costumes!|
|and two (2) Lego guys.|
...and are already brainstorming our costumes for next year!
