Halloween in Castro

This year was Jurgen’s ‘nuit de gloire’. His costume, ‘The Puzzle’, lit up by heaps of electroluminescent wire, was – I have to admit – a blasting success (just like my plasma sphere costume last year). My Inca outfit with fiber-optic decoration wasn’t too bad after all, given the creative block I experienced this year. The evening didn’t start too promising though, with rain storms hitting us on I-280 on our way to San Francisco. Not in the city however, so there was no need for costume disintegration concerns. As usual, the crowd in the Castro was a blend of wild and weird-looking urbanites and gawking tourists – the novelty is wearing off a bit for me (I fondly remember how impressed I was my first time here), though there were still lots of cool looking and acting people: some impressions.
