Halloween highlights

Foam Monster

This year's Halloween Parade was certainly as wild as ever, but I arrived later than planned, so I stood around in the big crowded holding pen of costumed folk on 6th Ave until it started raining hard enough for one of my companion's white nylon costume to be compromised. And then bailed.

In the time I spent swarming around at the foot of the parade, Lady Gaga and Max from Where the Wild Things Are were by far the most represented, and there were (thankfully) very few unfunny political statement costumes. Here are a few highlights from the parade, and from the series of bars that I sought shelter in:

The blue foam monster in the top photo--anyone know what that is?

Lots more photos on Flickr.

Great costumes! (Although, I think that last one might actually be Captain Morgan, not Captain Hook... The blue cape gives it away.)

The Walk/Don't Walk is not just a great costume, but that picture is great, too. Nice lighting with the wet pavement.

Yeah, it's a great shot of a distinctly urban costume. It would be cool if there was a real walk/don't walk sign glowing somewhere in the background.
