Halloween in Castro

Just got back from the Halloween street parade in Castro Street in San Francisco. Forgot to put a media card in my camera, so no pics this year (at least, until I get some of my friends’ cameras). This year was the second year the event was organized (as opposed to the spontaneous happening it used to be). Perhaps because of this, the crowds seemed bigger, there were more and more ‘gawkers’ and less people in actual costume, which is unfortunate. I remember clearly how great it was three years ago, how it was this big open-air party with outrageously funny people everywhere. Now the truely remarkable creations/creatures seemed rare. Suggestion by J: install gates and only let in people in costume! My costume by the way was a mountain-biker-attacked-by-mountain-lion; J was a ‘roper’ and S the Joker.
