dim sum mum mum… mum

First, some MOOD MUSIC (I love how the video takes you all around the streets of L.A.):

THIS you'll want to come to...

Second, for all those who still want to cosplay after this weekend but want to get back home at a reasonable hour next Thursday, October 31, come join Chego for the Halloween Dim Sum Crawl. Tickets can be bought HERE.

Paired with our deliciously eerie bowls (think: blood sausage, pickled carrots, spinach, black teriyaki
) will be the iconic Kirin frozen beers that you’ve never seen outside of Dodger Stadium. But for one night and one night only, it shall be gracing its frosty presence at Far East Plaza. Ice cold beers never had it so good.

The cool part? You’ll be having 3-4 bites at 4 different restaurants paired with frosty craft beers.

Aaaaaaaaand, if you’re a lady femme looking for an impressive costume that is relatively WARM and won’t have your grandparents crying, “But WAiiii???”, there’s this cool site called Take Back Halloween where they take historical and mythical figures from throughout human civilzation and show you how to make them. Even cooler is that there is little to no sewing involved and they focus on ready-made items already in your closet or available for cheap at your local craft store. My favorites?

BEHOLD: MORRIGAN

Pretty high fashion for an Irish bird goddess linked to battle, gore and death.

Hollywood Classic ANNA MAY WONG:

Pretty much the only Chinese American movie star during the frakked up, golden times of old Hollywood.

GOING GREEK: ARTEMIS

Yayyy! Now you don't have to join a sorority for $800 to go Greek! Another upside to this costume? NO SEWING. JUST FABRIC. And maybe a bow and some arrows and a mighty stuffed deer you borrow from your non-vegan, taxidermist cousin.

GOING DRAMATICALLY UNIBROW: FRIDA KAHLO

Sometimes, you just need one brow for beauty.

IN THE NAME OF THE MOON, I CHOOSE: IXCHEL

The classic multitasker, the Maya goddess of the moon, was granted with powers over fertility, water, medicine, midwifery, and weaving.

LADY BOSS: HATSHEPSUT

Like a regal ghost...who shall tell you what's what. Especially when it comes to important trade missions, gorgeous architecture, and the fundamentals of a booming economy (U.S. gov, please take note).

P.S. I promised myself that I would never play any Katy Perry on this blog. It’s the irritating catchi-ness, the Lisa Frank aesthetic, how her self-professed new found darkness really isn’t all that dark (not if it’s still sunny compared to Nickelback) and how her overproduced rainbow-splashed Top-40-friendly sounds are rewarded with album sales and an influx of Twitter followers.

I don’t have anything against Katy Perry, the person. Just Katy Perry, The Music.

That said, we all know that I have an ooey gooey marshmallow center, despite my best efforts, and thusly cannot resist posting this video.

P.P.S. And a song for all the ladies with functioning ovaries:
