Halloween at work.

So we had our Halloween party at work today, with a generous prize for the winning costume. I had a brainstorm a few days back, while I was bemoaning that I wasn’t feeling the holiday spirit, to dress up as an aboriginal headhunter. This was partly motivated by watching the Mythbusters episode where Jamie gets covered in gold latex paint from head to toe, to simulate the scene from Goldfinger. The other part of the motivation is the fact that I’ve lost some weight and gotten some definition from doing a lot of rock climbing, and my vanity (favorite sin) told me I should strip down for work.

So I went on a warpath yesterday, looking for supplies to be a aboriginal headhunter. Spear, necklace of skulls, body paint, loincloth, all that good stuff. I managed to find the paint, but the spear and necklace eluded me. I ended up buying like 6 tubes of brown paint, one tube of white, and one tube of black from the Spirit superstore in the area. Couldn’t find a spear, but did find a really cool staff with a skull on it that I probably would have bought anyways. 🙂
Got the loincloth from nabbing a towel we had at home that had spots on it. Used a belt with it to ensure that my manliness would be covered.

Painted myself from head to toe with brown paint. Only used about 2 tubes of the stuff, and used the white to make a skull and make some patterns. The black was accenting on my face. Jacob got my back, literally. Thanks Jacob!
At the last minute, Tony suggested I get a Coke bottle for a “The Gods Must Be Crazy” reference. He ran down to the Marina Market and got one for me. Thanks Tony!

Only took a few pics with my camera at the end, but will be yoinking some pics from Jacob who was using his far superior camera.
