costume confusion

i dressed up as arimbi, one of the indonesian wayang puppets (not the shadow puppets, the ones with sticks and batik skirts).  matt dressed as a green variation of frankenstein, although i tried to tell him that i think only the cartoon frankenstein was green.

people seemed to find us confusing.  they thought we were:

me:  cleopatra, mata hari, a nordic walker, "kinda chinese"
matt: the hulk, shrek


pictures if i find any.  bunches of tourists took my pic, but i’m not sure if anyone i actually know did.  wait, that’s not true… i’m sure someone did.  well, hopefully they’ll send me one.

anyway, it was a fun time even if i was exhausted.  we started by walking past winston kingdom and collecting pepijn for a drink at getto.  then we went back to winston kingdom to see the vulgarettes play.  hung out outside for a long time, then headed to a couchsurfing party on handboogstraat, which was super lame, but we got to see tami and gian’s great costumes, then we went to korsakoff for a while, and ended up at maloe melo for a long time.

note:  the ONLY person who recognized my costume was mano (sp?) whom we met while at korsakoff but ended up chatting more with at maloe melo – as it turns out he (and muriel) are friends of friends.  funny small world.


  1. Getting ready to leave

    didn’t get any pictures of you and only that one of Matt, but this is a small selection of what I took that night (admittedly 75% of my photos were of Gian riding his bike around Amsterdam dressed like a squid).
