The Village Halloween Parade



"I live with snakes and lizards and other things that go bump in the night.

To me every day is Halloween, I've given up hiding and started to fight."



That's right, we marched in the Annual Village Halloween Parade. Tony, Drew, Mikey, Juan and I built our own sets of Sandtrooper armor for Halloween this year. When we were close to finishing, we got in touch with Frank from the 501st Stormtrooper Division, Empire City Garrison. They invited us to come out and march with them in the parade. How could we say no?


Everyone we met from the Garrison was super nice to us, and we had a great time eating with them at Mars 2112 restaurant, then storming the subway in costume, marching with them in the parade, and then bar hopping and drinking with the gang. It was truly a very memorable experience. Now, on with the pics...


Oh, and if anyone wasn't mentioned by name and wants to be, send me a note, I can't remember everyone's name.


Also, if anyone has other pics from that night and wants them thrown in here, send them along!

Juan and Victor. Victor, a fellow Convention Security Volunteer "found" us during the parade and scared the hell out of me when he attacked me. It's not easy to see out of the Stormtrooper helmets as it is, and when something as ugly as Victor jumps in front of you... well, you can guess how scary it is.

Here's a very small part of the group that was out there that night.

Some more shots of our little group. (I forget who took these shots)

Drew attempting to "interrogate" the Princess.

Drew and Keith, the Brooklyn Stawm Troopahs.


After leaving the parade, we were invited (by a very sexy nurse) to a party on W24th.


Trying to get a shot of the hot and sexy bunny, and then Frank gets in the way!!!

Scary chef.

Drew attempting to "interrogate" the Queen.

"What, I didn't touch her, I swear!"

Scary Royal Guard, or guy in a dress holding a big phallic symbol? You be the judge.

Guy in a dress. Chicks dig a guy in a dress.

Hottie Storm Trooper groupies. They're everywhere.

Morgan, the Rapping Fett. He's actually got a "Record Player" on his back. Now I know many of you are too young to even know what a "Record Player" is, so you'll just have to take my word that it's cool.

Tony and Morgan guarding the Queen.

Victor looking even scarier out of his mask.


After the party there, we headed to the Limelight, but didn't want to blow $30 a head to get in, so we followed Morgan to a loft party in the village. On the way, we bumped into Tony, another Convention Security Volunteer, so he tagged along to be my personal photographer.


Sexy Angel and Sexy Indian (or Sexy Native American if you like) Chicks looking for love.

Drew, Keith and me attempting to "interrogate" the Bride.

Cave folk wandering around in the land of the top dwellers.

Hot chick.

Another hot chick.

Yet another hot chick.

Still another hot chick... wait a minute, that's the same hot chick, but with some freaky wrestler dude.

I think Tony really took a fancy to this girl. Three shots with her in it so far.

I don't even know where to start with this picture. It scares me, but I can see nipples... So confusing...

Sexy dead Cheerleader.

Devil Girl, but then again, aren't they all?

All I gotta say is, they're holding hands and it looks like they're just about to kiss...

Now this is what I'm talking about!!

A party just isn't a party until one girls starts dominating another one.

Dancing drunk girl. Every party has that one dancing drunk girl, and this was ours.

Well, she's got a bowl full of bloody, human fingers, but she is really hot and she does have a friend. So I guess that's a plus?

Ya know, I once got kicked out of the Boy Scouts for eating a Brownie...

Never let drunks take pictures... But it's ok, they took the part of the picture that's least attractive out. :)

Damn! But they took another one and you can see Tony's face. Oh well. Can't have it all.

Morgan, Tony and Tony acting as drunk as they can get.

White trash, baby. Gotta love the white trash chicks. Actually, any chick in a Quiet Riot T-shirt holding a can of Cheez Whiz is a winner in my book.

Tony being "interrogated" by Madonna herself. Poor guy.

And then there was the Zebra Girl. Had to keep her away from the cave guy earlier, or things would have gotten ugly.


After the party came the trip home. With the LIRR only leaving every two hours, we had a lot of time to relax and wait.


Hotties hanging out at the Train Station not wearing underwear.

I know I've mentioned before about never giving a camera to a drunk guy...

But when you give them a camera with a zoom, they take pictures of unsuspecting girls from a distance.

In some states this is called "Stalking".

Check out the freaks that hang around Train Stations at 3am. Well, not including us. We're cool. My mommy told me so.


More pictures to come, so check back soon!!!
