Metropolis Halloween Glitterball 2009
After nearly ten years in Japan, I finally made it to my first Metropolis Halloween Party. I wish I had started attending them sooner, because it was a BLAST! Although, I’m not completely stupid though, because I had enough foresight to book a hotel room for the night of the party and take the next day off from work.
I had with me the old Fuji F30. It served the purpose well and from the photo gallery you can see I just dumped the memory card straight from the camera. It’s further proof positive that no matter what camera I use I am more than capable of producing bland, out of focus, poorly framed shots with bad composition and timing.
I was dressed up as Peter Pan, and Saori was Tinker Bell. She had scored a great deal on the costumes earlier that week via the internet.
I was not planning to stay out all night (Thats what the hotel room was for) but I was aware that the party was a “Nomihodai” meaning it was sure to be fun, if not a little bit of a challenge for the old liver. And true to form I lost count after the 9th or 10th gin-tonic, but seeing as the party started at 7pm, there was plenty of time not only to drink, but to burn those drinks off.
Granted I was not feeling as chipper as I usually do as I rolled out of bed at the crack of afternoon the next day, but I’ll blame that on the cheap gin.
Will I go again next year? Most definitely, I just need to think of another costume that will be popular as Peter Pan. With Japan having such an obsession for all things Disney I was constantly getting dragged into pictures with people which is a great conversation starter to say the least.
Soooo. Anyone have any ideas about what I should be next year?
