ILM Halloween 2008

This weekend was the ILM/Lucasfilm Halloween 2008 party and it was amazing!! Great food, glorious costumes like last year, and just generally awesome times.

Becca, Andy, Dan, Vicky and I rocked some sweet Big Lebowski style and it was classic. Sarah came as a raccoon and Frank came dressed... as ME. (This is the 2nd time a Texan has dressed up as Mike Jutan for Halloween, if you rewind back to Pixar Halloween 2006 and Brooks's now-famous "#1 Intern" costume) :) The funniest part was Frank's Jutan-style super curly hair wig and that he had an Obama shirt on... and that he didn't know that Jake also dressed up as me 2 years ago. :) Haha, anyhoo I am flattered beyond belief. Also, apparently people from Texas are the coolest.

So that was hilarious, and it was just an absolutely amazing time. After the party we trekked randomly through the somewhat dodgy-looking-yet-safe streets of Soma to a party with a bunch of the Animation peeps. It was great, amazing view on their roof patio and everyone was legendary. Ran into Gabe-rielle there, who went dressed as Starbuck from Battlestar Gallactica (based on a "you look exactly like her" recommendation from Frank and I), haha loved it.

The fun continued: more random BART run-ins with people who loved the Big Lebowski, weird looks on the subway, and some overtly cheesy quesidillas washed down with some Jarritos "Mandarine" (gotta love that Yellow #5 food colouring)... and it was time to call it a night. A night... of AWESOME. I don't think it would have been humanly possible to have more fun. Great people, great times, and... just couldn't have been better. :)

Anyway enough yappin'. Here are some photos.

These guys were called the "Liquidators of Cuteness" or something, I think a Care Bear came face to face with the business end of that random crossbow...

Talking about dangerous costumes, it's JVDZ!

On the way to the party, we found a McLaren Mercedes that was hotttttt.

Erika's wand looked like the spinny part of a kitchen mixer, I was hoping it was going to be used for making cookie dough or something...

Hahahahaha. Beautiful.

Glorious view from the rooftop

Little bit 'o chillin', little bit 'o illin'
