Ready for the America’s most exciting holiday? Here, Halloween is actually real (you feel it!), and people get very serious about this celebration! So how they celebrate it? Halloween is a synonymous of trick-or-treat, costume parties, carving jack-o’-lanterns (pumpkins), bonfires, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories and watching horror films.
Last year, I went to a costume party.. I had just arrived to the US, so my friend borrowed me a costume of…kind of a vampire. Well, I was half vampire, half me: the (tiny) dress+skinny black pants+some make up+ my sneakers..lol
Ah! But this year it’s starting differently: I already bought a pumpkin (well, not exactly a pumpkin, it was canned pumpkin, cheaper!), my labmate already changed the old playlist to creepy songs (hehe) and the coolest thing ever: I saw a super awesome horror movie! Do you know Rocky Horror? It’s a film from 1975… so it’s a old science fiction movie, low-budget, trying to be very creepy! The result: a very funny film, but also with a “cultural, historical, or aesthetic significance”. But now, picture this: the film started on the projector and at the same time, some actors were performing, copying it. More, the public (including me) interacted too, helping to build the scenario (for ex. we had to throw water with little water guns to do the rain, do the choreography when they start to sing.. hilarious!). And some cast was spread in the public saying jokes at loud and making funny at the movie, on purpose.. I was thinking: What the f**k is this? Hilarious, simply hilarious… I laugh all the time and I just understood half of the jokes!! lol
Let’s see what I can do more for this Halloween… For now, just have a look at these photos..Is not cool all the stuff that they have to offer? Americans are pro in throwing theme parties!
