Halloween 2010 has drawn to a close, and this year's annual October Bataan Death March of Fun Weekend included two costume changes and a minimum of controversy, all things considered. There *was* a moment when Baron XII and I pondered the wisdom of wandering the streets of Greenpoint, Brooklyn (a historically Polish neighborhood) while dressed in outfits that were rather sacrelicious, but we figured it could always be worse: we could show up to a venue named Warsaw in what we wore last year.
Of note: people had a really, REALLY hard time parsing the fact that I was dressed as a Weimar Berlin lesbian on Friday. Apparently a reasonably attractive woman wearing a painted-on moustache is something of an anomaly, since I got mistaken for a kitty cat and a secretary at different times of the evening. My fave moment came when someone asked me if the moustache was a tattoo. THAT is even more hardcore than *I* am willing to go.
Baron XIII would make a fantastic supervillain, I think. Tis one of the many reasons I dig him so damn much!
