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:
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.
