Metropolis Halloween Glitterball 2009

After nearly ten years in Japan, I finally made it to my first Metropolis Halloween Party.  I wish I had started attending them sooner, because it was a BLAST!  Although, I’m not completely stupid though, because I had enough foresight to book a hotel room for the night of the party and take the next day off from work.

2009 Metropolis Halloween Glitterball

A Playboy Bunny, Peter Pan, A guy who is trying to be WAY to sexy for this photo, and the most shocked person with pink hair I have ever seen.

More Photos Here


I had with me the old Fuji F30.  It served the purpose well and from the photo gallery you can see I just dumped the memory card straight from the camera.  It’s further proof positive that no matter what camera I use I am more than capable of producing bland, out of focus, poorly framed shots with bad composition and timing.

I was dressed up as Peter Pan, and Saori was Tinker Bell.  She had scored a great deal on the costumes earlier that week via the internet.

I was not planning to stay out all night (Thats what the hotel room was for) but I was aware that the party was a “Nomihodai” meaning it was sure to be fun, if not a little bit of a challenge for the old liver.  And true to form I lost count after the 9th or 10th gin-tonic, but seeing as the party started at 7pm, there was plenty of time not only to drink, but to burn those drinks off.

Granted I was not feeling as chipper as I usually do as I rolled out of bed at the crack of afternoon the next day, but I’ll blame that on the cheap gin.

Will I go again next year?  Most definitely, I just need to think of another costume that will be popular as Peter Pan.  With Japan having such an obsession for all things Disney I was constantly getting dragged into pictures with people which is a great conversation starter to say the least.

Soooo.  Anyone have any ideas about what I should be next year?

    Videos?… O_O


    When I dumped those files off my memory card I had forgotten that I had taken some video that night as well.

    Well, isn’t that magical how drunk and stupid I sounded. Oh well, too late now, it’s out there already.
