HALLOWEEN CLUB CRAWL REVIEW

Last Saturday was Halloween and nearly everyone went crazy. Actually that’s not surprising; I mean it’s one of the most popular events in North America. You could see many people who were dressed as a Minion. At least just as many wore a Super Mario or Luigi costume. Consequently the costume of my roommate and me perfectly fitted since, as I mentioned in one of my last blog posts, I was dressed as Mario and she was my “brother” Luigi.

For my first real Halloween party in Canada I certainly had big expectations and they were more than fulfilled last Saturday! Actually they were exceeded. Hundreds of people wearing Halloween costumes and went absolutely crazy.

 

After around 10pm the entire Granville Street was closed for cars. So Granville was just opened for all the party people and therefor the street was really crowded. The line-ups in front of the clubs were quite long. That’s why people partied even on the street.

First we had some difficulties at in the beginning but then we started our crazy night at the Harbour Event Center near BC Place. Shortly after we entered the club the first bus left to take us to our second party location. 22719343705_7ab7449cd4_bWe went from party to party with a typical American school bus, which was absolutely amazing. I always wanted to take a bus like that. The atmosphere during the bus ride was incredible since the people turned the bus into a party bus. Probably most of them were already drunk at this time but they didn’t care after all it was Halloween. The bus driver let us off on Granville Street where all the fancy clubs are located.

It was the first time I celebrated Halloween in such a big way and it was a great to be part of it.

REVIEW: HALLOWEEN SHOPPING

Not even two weeks left and Halloween will be here! For this occasion I’ve decided to check out some stores in downtown for the obligatory Halloween costume shopping. 15545295126_94612b80b9_b
The variety of crazy costumes at the Halloween shops here in North America is just incredible. You really get lost in between all these clothes! Furthermore you are getting so many different impressions that in the end you cannot really make up your mind. I can only speak for myself but my Halloween shopping was absolutely successful. My friend and I will go as Mario & Luigi! I’m pretty sure everyone knows these both characters. They are from the famous video game released in the 80s and it was later re-released for Wii as well.

If you haven’t gotten your costume yet or if you still have no idea what to wear here are some ideas: Witch/Vampire/Zombie, Superhero, Animal, Doctor/Nurse, Batman, Movie Character, Star Wars Character, Political, Pirate or Minion.15382473248_5e44e2d014_b

For all of you who haven’t found the right Halloween costume yet, you should definitely check out the three shops (Halloween Alley, Boo La La Costumes and Spirit Halloween) in North Vancouver! They have a nice variety of different costumes. You can also find costumes and other Halloween stuff at Shoppers Drug Mart, London Drugs and Rexell.

Hope you will find some scary/funny/crazy/whatever costumes there or somewhere else!
