Mano and I At the San Francisco Giants Parade
In an attempt to escape the cold from New York, and to see some close friends of mine that live in California, i headed out to San Francisco to spend a few days in the sunny nicer weather and have a relaxing time.
As my trip got postponed 2-3 times over a period of about a month and a half due to work related stuff (dance rehearsals, performances, and photoshoots for Pookie & Sebastian in NYC), it wasn't really on purpose that I would be there for Halloween. Certainly I'm happy it coincided though, if anything for this awesome photo I took (ABOVE) of some random people who passed me on my way to the SF Giants Parade, the other lucky coincidence of my trip, which happened in honor of their Baseball World Series Win.
I'm not really a huge Halloween type of person, I mean, I enjoy it, but I don't get very much into planning my costume like some of my friends who spend literally weeks planning and gathering just the right materials to make the perfect costume. Usually I end up doing something last minute and this year was no different, I ended up just wearing a black jumpsuit and painting myself as some sort of skeletal creature. Overall we had a great time, I met a bunch of my friend's friends, got to briefly hang out with a recent New York - SF transplant (who seems to really like the change) and just experienced a different, seemingly more laid back Halloween scene than the New York Scene, which I like, however its always nice to see a different perspective ;)
