my first Halloween in the first state

Last night, it was my duty as resident pro athlete of the first state to mingle and network with my fellow Wilmingtownies. The Halloween Loop is a city-wide party with 21 participating bars and clubs, including a few right next door to me. I figured if they were going to be noisy and rowdy, I might as well join in on the shenanigans for at least a little bit.

So… I went as a Hellcat. “Hellcats” is a TV show on the CW network about college cheerleaders, kind of like “Bring It On” goes to college. Yeah, none of you could guess it because you probably don’t watch it. I personally had never heard of it either, until I followed Alex Wong of “So You Think You Can Dance” fame on Twitter, then found out his brother Jeremy Wong is the token hunky Asian boy on this show called “Hellcats.” Yes, we Wongs are all kinds of awesome.

Then I was writing up a story for MSN TV on “Halloween Costumes Inspired by TV,” and figured, why not. I’d always secretly wanted to be a cheerleader but in middle school and high school I would have rather died than admit that, or worse, actually go to auditions. They always had the cutest outfits and were so popular. And coordinated too. I always lacked the coordination. I still do. AHAHAHA. Anyway, Halloween is about dressing up as whatever you want to be. And if you’re a girl, it’s a rule that you have to be the super sexy version of whatever that might be.

the requisite self-portrait before heading out.

So yes, I did make the outfit myself. As in, went to the fabric store and busted out the sewing machine. I haven’t done Halloween with other “grown-ups” in a few years so it was a blast seeing everyone’s costumes and I made a lot of new friends last night! I even met an actual former college cheerleader who was in her old uniform. And she said my outfit was so realistic she couldn’t believe I made it myself! :)

this girl was a real cheerleader in college!

I met other TV-inspired costumes… like sexy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Rafael, Michaelangelo, Donatello and Leonardo

A little blurry, but there was a sexy Ghostbuster…

Who ya gonna call??

Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street:

the original ambiguous duo!

Bender the robot from Futurama:

He had a special straw going inside the head so he could imbibe.

And of course other pop culture-inspired costumes!

Hulk Hogan

Elton John and Lady Gaga

Frog Prince looking for a princess

Lindsay Lohan and Michael Jackson

a SUPER sexy Wonder Woman!

body paint is a must!

I love how people go all out.

Where's Waldo? He's with me.

and then there were two.

"Gingy" from the Shrek movies

Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween! Rah rah rah! ;)

I think I actually succeeded in making this skimpier than the actual TV outfits.
