My night started out with pre-party. Kendall had invited Lisa, Ronnie, and a few others over. I donned my costume and was going to call my new regular taxi driver when Cowboy Doug texted me to come to Banana Beach and I then I could score a ride to town.
This year I was all set to be a race car mechanic and scored a great cute dress at one of our many second-hand shops. Unfortunately, between the time I bought it and Halloween about 5 – 7 lbs happened and so I decided to give it Alex instead – was perfect for her. This left me in the last minute scramble for a costume.
On Fashionably Late with Rachel Zoe, they said: “the best costumes come from something you already own.” That made perfect sense and it was a no brainier for me, instantly I knew the direction I was going – sexy Japanese Ninja. I had everything I needed except a sword and wig. Thankfully one of my personal shoppers 😀 Lisa had a few days before her arrival on Friday and was willing to come to my rescue at Party City.
The annual Holiday Hotel party is always a chart topper and this year, while the general public did not go as all out, as usual, Jurassic Park made the night. When MC Eiden announced a latecomer, the Jurassic Park movie theme music started to play and a 15 foot or so Dinosaur complete with scientists and guards holding AK47’s came through the door. It was a jaw-dropping show stopper.
A few pics of people in costumes walking the purple carpet for a grand entrance.
Although it was a bit dark for video and the sound was not great I made a short video mashup for you of the party.
