Bullet Sunday 105

Posted on Sunday, November 2nd, 2008

Dave!It's Bullet Sunday from kinda-sunny Orlando the day after The Greatest Show On Earth... The Avitable's Halloween Party!

It was an amazing event and good times were had by all (some more than others, however). I'm already looking forward to next year!

• Neverwas! The theme for this year was "The Neverwas Fair" which was billed as a "Sideshow of The Forgotten." Hopefully Adam will post photos of all the amazing decorations that saturated his house, because it was too dark for me to get any. I did manage to find my "Missing!" poster, however...

Neverwas Fair Sign
This sign is the first thing you see as you approach the house.

I love chocolate pudding!

Hilly and Adam
Hilly-Sue and Master of Ceremonies Adam (who appears to be having a wardrobe malfunction).

• Costume! When my original costume idea fell through because the stuff I ordered never came, I didn't have much time to come up with something new. Fortunately, as I was washing clothes one day, I took the Neverwas shirt that Avitable designed out of the dryer and had my costume idea...

I think Adam himself said it best when he said "You've made the impossible, possible" — because creating the outfit was impossibly difficult. No fabric existed like what he had drawn, so everything had to be sewn. I also had the impossible task of trying to find all the right accessories like the blue hair, bloody white knife, and bloody dolly. It was a tremendous amount of last-minute work, but I was quite happy with the final result... even if I did scare myself silly every time I saw myself in the mirror...

Dave and Shash
Here I am with Shash... just before I murder her!

Dave Clown Murders Poppy!
And here I am murdering Poppy!
Note to self: Do not have somebody attempt to murder you with Hilly around... she's no help at all.

• Tequila! There were so many great moments last night... too many to count (or remember, for that matter)... but one of my favorite that I got recorded was Sarah trying a tequila shot for the first time. Here's the "Before & After"...

Oh Sarah Joy tries tequila for the first time.
Yep, that's about right! Tequila innocence lost!

The picture tells the story, but the best part was when she turned to Hilly afterwards and said "GAH! IS IT SUPPOSED TO TASTE LIKE THAT?!?" Adorable. So cute I wanted to take her home in my pocket. Thanks, Sarah!

• The End! Since I had to get up at 6:00 and return my rental car to the airport, I stopped drinking at around 10:00pm and finally left The Avitable's house at 2:00am so I could rush back the the hotel and catch 3-1/2 hours sleep. I had already changed out of my costume earlier in the evening when I drove Hilly-Sue to the store on a beer run, but the makeup was still there. Frightening...

Dave and Makeup
I'm a full 1/3 less scary without the wig on.

A huge thank you to Adam and Amy for such an amazing party again this year. Can't wait to see everybody again next Halloween!

I've posted some more pictures of the party in an extended entry, if anybody would care to take a look there...

• Photos! I was so engrossed in the party, I kept forgetting to take pictures! Here are a few of the ones I remembered to take. A few more iPhone pictures are on my Flickr Stream...

Becky and Hilly are Good and Evil

Miss Britt Sings!

Canadia Represents!
When Britt gave a shout-out to "Canadia," I think she meant these Canadians: LeSombre & Deanna.

    Looks like a great time! You’re the scariest murdering clown I’ve ever seen. Makes Sometimes Rabbit seem almost friendly.

  2. Sheila says:

    I’m sure you’ve heard this a million times, but your costume is amazing. The attention to detail is superb!!

  3. You look fantastic! What a great costume you’re so creative 🙂

  4. ChillyWilly says:

    Classic… just a bunch of fun. Now tell me again why I miss these things? Even Hilly, the nation-wide traveler, is there.

    Your costume turned out great.

  5. seriously. dude. that costume fucking rocked. how on earth did you “throw that together” on short notice??!?!!!

  6. Hilly Sue says:

    I may watch you stab other people but then I get even for ALL OF THEM by stabbing the baby!.

  7. Danalyn says:

    Wow! Your costume was effing awesome!

    …although…I still think nekkid cowboy would have been better. 😛

  8. claire says:

    Way to get your serial killing clown on, Dave! Looks like quite the soiree.

    I really like the autumn fairy costume as well.

  9. kapgar says:

    I’m not sure what’s scarier, you in clown makeup or you without any sign of facial hair whatsoever. Glad you had fun.

  10. Stacey says:

    fun times. “Murder Clown” is genius, but I have to admit I totally cackled when I saw Rainbow Brite!

  11. Jacki says:

    Don’t you have a phobia about clowns? How did you cope with yourself?

  12. B.E. Earl says:

    Amazing costume and party pics! Well done.

  13. mew says:

    your costume was among my favorites

  14. Mattie says:

    I’m terribly frightened by clowns.

    I didn’t used to be …

  15. margalit says:

    As a rule I find clowns repulsively creepy, but you… you are really the perfection of creepy clowndom. Love the way the makeup stayed on. Did you get on the plane like that?

  16. suze says:

    What an amazing costume. I’m very impressed. Looks like a great time was had by all.

  17. sizzle says:

    That is a fantastic costume. No wonder you were so perturbed at all mishaps in making it. But it turned out awesome! I wouldn’t have recognized you.

  18. Avitable says:

    Your costume was outstanding. Totally.

    You, Rainbow Brite, and Iron Man ruled the costumes, I think.

  19. Sarah says:

    I didn’t even know that you were taking those pictures.

    That night was a lot of fun. I just wish that I had more time to spend with everyone.

  20. Kris says:

    Not. One. Zombie. I so would’ve rocked that party. *sniff*

  21. A Lewis says:

    By god, would you just look at that…Adam has a nipple. Remember on Seinfeld when Elaine sent out her Christmas cards with a nipple showing….hehehe! I like Adam’s better.

  22. ETinNY says:

    You even made the doll!!?? You are definitely OCD, dude. No wonder you have trouble sleeping. It paid off, though. Kudos on the fantastic costume!

  23. Justin Scott says:

    Wow, that looks like one hell of a good time!

  24. Catherine says:

    Can you stand another awe-struck comment about the ingenious perfection of your costume? Threw this together at the last minute? Miraculous, outstanding. Everything you do, you do well, and I really admire that.

    I’d love to go next year!

  25. You were one sexy, stabby clown! I had way too much fun last night!

  26. yellojkt says:

    That is a truly amazing costume. Pennywise has nothing on you. I think Hilly has a crush on you because she always near you.

    And how come I don’t get invited to really cool party’s like that?

    And thanks for entering my Election Prediction Pool.

  27. Patty says:

    Looks like a great time! Wish I could’ve had more fun than just trick r treating with the kid. ha.

  28. Marc says:

    Awesome costume, Dave!

  29. SJ says:

    Fabulous job on the costume, Dave2! I can’t imagine how your original idea could possibly have surpassed Murder Clown.

    Starting in January, I’m banking all my fluffer earnings toward attending Avitaween 2009.

  30. bubblewench says:

    I really think your costume was the best. You are so creative. I’m jealous.

  31. twinkie says:

    holyshitsomebodyholdme. Clown? With a knife? My nightmare come true.


  32. NYCWD says:

    I truly had no idea that was you when I first saw you… and isn’t that the point of Halloween anyway???

    Well… that and getting candy.

    For adults its liquid candy.

    Yeah… I overate on candy.

    But I look conscious!

  33. Wow! So awesome. You rocked it. Rainbow Brite wasn’t so shabby either. I’m happy to see that a great time was had by all. Go Avitable!!!
