Yes, Halloween has been and gone, with only the left over decorations and a costume in the corner remaining.
I love Halloween! I particularly love Halloween on ships. There is always at least one big party, often two. My first year on ships there were two parties – the crew party and the passenger party. For the crew party you can basically go as whatever you want – as slutty, messy, pornographic, usual craziness you like…. However, for the passenger party you have to be a bit more sedate ;-) As with always when you work on a ship, you are on display when in passenger areas, which means you represent the cruise line, and in my case my production company as well. So, you have to be a bit careful about what outfit you choose. My first year I was a vampire for the crew party and then Ginger Spice with a bunch of my dancers as the other Spice Girls for the passenger party. The second year my ship was in dry dock being mended so we had no passengers… cue huge crew party on the pool deck! That year I went as slutty Dorothy, mainly for my boyfriend at the time who had a thing for the Wizard of Oz and pig tails!
This year I got to dress up twice again. For the crew party I was going to go as Jem from Jem and the Holograms, that great 80’s cartoon. I have the whole costume made…. Then I got with my friends on the ship and we decided to go as the witches from Hocus Pocus! I made my costume on the fly out of vintage dresses and I think it came out pretty well! We had a great time taking photos with everyone and posing, as all good performers do! For the passenger party we went sexy, but covered! I bought a black and purple pirate wench outfit from Ricky’s in New York and made bloomers to go under it to cover me up more. It worked out pretty well, and I love having extra costumes around!
What do you think of my Halloween creation? Leave me comment to let me know!
