It’s Halloween, or rather Halloweek, in Dublin. We got all dressed up (no photos, sadly—we completely spaced on them and the ones we took later were too blurry to make out), and we actually did find a place to go.
Do you remember our friends from last night? One of them, Janina (who happens to be from Germany), came out with us tonight. We scraped together costumes from our various suitcase wardrobes, and I think they turned out all right. I wish we had photographic proof, but the costumes are as follows: Liz made a spectacular (-ly happy) goth, Sam visited his roots in nature as a zombified hipster, Kaitlyn made an impression as a zombie greaser, Megan and I sucked it up and went as Gothic vampires, and Janina took out the competition as a pirate captain.
Janina showed us the way to a club, where we promptly found our place on the dance floor. I had a blast, dancing away to music like “I Don’t Care, I Love It,” “Pompeii,” “Wonderwall,” and “Can’t Stop,” (by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, not Miley Cyrus), and the “Ghostbusters” theme song. It was a very eclectic mix, and there was a lot of foreign music as well (because the club was actually a favorite of the Dublin international exchange students), but it made for great dancing.
We didn’t get back until 5 a.m., after walking around town in the early morning, so it’s understandable that Sam and I crashed as soon as we got back to the hotel. I did manage to change into pajama pants rather than my dress, but as you can see, my makeup is still on. Sam, on the other hand, fell asleep in his costume. He makes a rather good hipster, don’t you think?
While Sam and I were sleeping, these two devious girls decided to play around with the camera. Somehow, they managed to look both adorable and awesome at the same time (adorably awesome?).
