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!

PUB NIGHT REVIEW

Fore last night was Trivia Night at Moose’s Down Under. We had a lot of fun and we really tried our best to answer at least some questions but most of them were so specific that our general knowledge wasn’t enough. 22185858802_8ba211742b_bLooks like we all need to study up some more! I actually wouldn’t have expected that it’s so hard to answer the questions right although I was warned about that before. Nevertheless it was lots of fun guessing the different kind of issues. To be honest we were guessing almost every time or actually we would have known more if they had accepted the German answers as well. Even at the mini games in between the four quiz rounds we were so bad though actually the only thing you need to win these games is a bit of luck. Since our group was knocked out after every first round of mini games we obviously hadn’t that much luck. We had to split up into two teams because we were too many people and you are only allowed to play in a group of 6 participants to win the jackpot. For us it didn’t matter … we were too bad anyways.

9957210503_50b7753078_bMoreover we weren’t there to win the game we were there to have fun, spend time together and to extend a warm welcome to our new candidates. I guess everyone agree with me.

On Saturday we will meet up to prepare for Halloween. There are only two weeks left therefore it is time to find a suitable outfit for this occasion. Did you already think about a Halloween costume? I informed myself about the Halloween trends 2015. As I read, the most popular costume trends include superheroes (e.g. Batman, Superman), science fiction stars (e.g. Star Wars characters), the Minions and throwback Thursday outfits (e.g. back to 90s outfits).As far as I’m concerned I prefer a “traditional” costume such as zombies or other spooky creatures. But we will see what the stores have plenty to offer.

Let’s get in a terrifying Halloween mood by shopping some costumes on Saturday.

Looking forward to Halloween!

Review: Halloween shopping

Last Saturday we went to Boo La La Costumes in North Vancouver to do the obligatory Halloween costume shopping. We met outside the store at 3pm. Inside the store was of course all kinds of crazy costumes… you could dress up as a superhero, a celebrity/an idol, a beer mug or even a dart board. There really was almost no limit to what you could wear for Halloween. Even the staff were wearing costumes and were painted in their faces trying to look scary. The staff members were really kind and helped us with any wishes or ideas that we had for our outfits. We had a lot of fun trying out different costumes before finally deciding on what to wear for Halloween. You can have a look at the hilarious pictures here.

Thanks to all of you who made this Halloween costume shopping awesome! And don’t forget to show off your great costumes for our Halloween party at Blarney Stone on Friday, October 31st. Those of you who didn’t have the chance to participate in our shopping are of course also more than welcome to join the party… The bigger the group the better. You can sign up for the event here. Remember, it’s only 10$ for the entrance, and for sure it’ll be a party like no other!

Review: Pub Night @ The Lamplighter

Yesterday we had a great Pub Night at the Lamplighter.

It was really great to see so many new faces ( and of course also “old” faces) again.
After really great burgers and whiskey for free (YEEEAAAH we’ve got whiskey for free) the bingo games started.
Every Wednesday there is a special night at the Lamplighter with bingo games.
Our table was full of bingo’s papers, markers and beer.
Some of us were really into the game and super excited. Even though we were close to, we never won. Too baaaaad! We are pretty sure that the other tables were cheating. 

However we had a great Pub Night and enjoyed the pleasant atmosphere at the Lamplighter.

Guys, Halloween is sooon! Don’t forget to sign up for the Halloween Party at Blarney Stone. Tickets will be sold out really fast…..

If you don’t have any costume for Halloween yet, join us for our Halloween shopping this Saturday, October 18.

Hope to see you next Wednesday for my last Pub Night 🙂
