As I have mentioned, the Nuffnang Nokia Silent Halloween Party was probably one of the most awesome events that I’ve been to in a long long time.
Probably the only event that I’ve been to in a long time actually. What with me being in Kedah most of the time and my can’t-be-arsed-ness to go for any events which I can’t relate to even when I’m back in Subang.
But Nuffnang is like a baby whose birth I witnessed and as one of the bloggers who stuck with them from the very beginning, I HAD TO GO.
I was supposed to go for the previous two parties but due to unforeseen circumstances, I couldn’t go.
Family matters>Chipster Pajamas Party, Final exams> Wild Live Party. Right?
So I was really pumped up for the Halloween one. As we all know, costume parties are perfect reasons for us to flaunt the slut in each and everyone of us.
My first idea was to go as the corpse of Marilyn Monroe, but a quick search on Google Blog Search showed some nuffnangers having the same idea. Funnily enough, no one blogged about wanting to go as Heath Ledger’s Joker.
The Joker is a really predictable Halloween Costume Choice this year, what with the big hoo hah about the Dark Knight.
But I needed to slutterize it. There was a scene where he was pretending to be a nurse (was it with Harvey Dent? I can’t remember).
Years ago, I saw a seller on ebay selling Sexy Nurse Outfits, only for less than RM50. The guy was based in Kedah too! What are the chances!
So that was my costume, a Slutty Joker Nurse.
And because of my lousy luck when it comes to online shopping, most of the things i buy online don’t fit me perfectly. I casted my net really wide this time and bought three pieces. Yeap. One had to fit right?
As you would have it, I couldn’t fit into two of the sluttier ones. Please lor, it’s not slutty if it has sleeves! 🙁
This was the perfect outfit. PVC and all cleavage, cleavage, cleavage. Sigh.
This was also very cleavagey but if it wasn’t for the cross, there’s no other reason why it is a nurse uniform.
Next, I chose a tutorial on how to do the Joker Make up from the hundreds of Joker make up tutorials on youtube. The girl used some very basic make up tools.
For the base, I used lipbalm and white face powder. You know those cheap ass compact powders you find at Chameleon or Sinma. I bet it was their worst selling product anyway. The powder was about RM7!
Then I bought a dark brown (for the shadows and wrinkles) and black(for the eyes) eyeshadow for Rm5 each from Elianto. Most intense eyeshadow colours for the greatest value! For the Panda Bear eyes, the girl mentioned that I would need a more intense black, something like a mascara’s consistency. RM8 for that!Â Two shades of red lipstick and black eyeliner to create the big smile. I was set!
I initially had a tough time looking for White cream make up, as most costume shops would stock it. But due to lack of time, I couldn’t get my hands on any. I was so desperate that I even tried mixing flour and water to see what happens. I looked furry from far.
So I started off by applying lip balm on my entire face. (my poor Neutrogena Lip Balm). Vaseline would have provided better coverage. But the lack of a tub of Vaseline at home was probably good news, in a way.
If i didn’t use the lip balm, the white powder would have slid off my face half way through the party. It also helped create a creamier consistency.
Then came the fun part! The eyes!! First, I applied black eyeshadow around the eyes. If I stopped there, I would only get a smoky eye effect. To go all out dirty, in comes the mascara. I squeezed as much mascara as I possibly could off the brush and applied it closer to the lash line. Spread it around and there you have, intense blackness.
I then took an eyeshadow brush and pulled the black away from the eyes for faux wrinkles. Used my nail to scratch the forehead and randomly scratched my face to get some of the wrinkles on. Brown eyeshadow next to the alar of my nose. (at the sides of both nostrils). Brown eyeshadow to create a furrow around my eyebrows.
Then I finished the look with plenty of glitter all over the make up. A touch of Jolene. 🙂
Then camwhore for awhile. Sorry ah. Joker Ki Hiao.
You can see the tutorial at the back.
If I let my hairdown, I would’ve looked like one of those scary rockers who paint their face for performances. Whatever, I don’t know my heavy metal.
Joker’s surprise birthday party.
I had to check to see if I would have any wardrobe malfunction that nigh
t with the cameras flashing here and there. Thank god Satin reflects! (Some Nude Bra material can be quite thin, and thus embarrassing.)
As per our newly founded tradition, Soon Seng and I pakated to go for this party together. For years, I’ve never liked bringing friends from real life to blog meets/parties because they would die of boredom from all the pointless camwhoring. Soon Seng has successfully submerged himself into the blogosphere and thus was the perfect friend to go with!
Not to say that I don’t think of blogging friends as real friends, but I’m more comfortable attending these events with someone I see more often in real life. And I don’t see any of my blogging friends on any other occasion except blog meets. (Yee Hou, you’re my real life friend too. *hugs*)
The party was like an Interact/Leo Club event to me, anyone and everyone was a friend to you. I just went around saying hello and making new acquaintances. I don’t know a whole lot of these people, fresh new faces in the blogosphere who have formed solid cliques and it’s almost like I was new to the scene, once more.Time to blame Kedah again. But it’s not the same, the blogosphere now and the blogosphere then.
Familiar faces have left the country to further their studies, some abandoned the blogging scene after passing that phase…
..but I’m always keen to meet new people. It’s my thing. 🙂
I used to be really shy and awkward at blog meets despite co-organizing a few blog meets. I’m actually quite loud and disgusting one. I was totally myself that night. Must’ve been the Joker make up, eh? Conversations flowed and a few of them spoke to me like old friends despite meeting me for the first time.
Nicholas came up to me and asked, “Guess who I am!”
I didn’t get it until he started sucking on his pinky. -_-;
Nicholas, your Mini Me doesn’t really look like you leh.
This was a good idea, it gave off red carpet vibes. As the bloggers arrived, they had their photos taken with this board-thing.
I can’t get over how absolutely adorable these Nuffies* from Singapore were. They came as the Powerpuff girls! The one in Blue is Huiwen, who is Bubbles right? (That’s all I know about Powerpuff girls). The one in Green is Cherie and the one in red is Raine. 🙂 I love love love Raine’s redbow. In this get up, they look at least 5 years younger than their real age. I’m guessing their about 20-21 years old. right?
*Nuffies is a term that the good people at Nuffnang call themselves.
And here’s Audrey before Absolut. Pitch had their way with her. You’ll see her costume later on.
I realised there were about 6 people from my high school there! And all in different years too!
There was Chee Wei who went as Scream ( I think ) who is from the 1984 year.
Audrey who is from the 1985 batch.
Chung Lern and myself from the 1986 batch.
Wai Ping (or Pinky, as many of you know her!) from the 1988 batch.
and Sherrymint from the 1989 batch. She told me she was my brother’s classmate for two years and that she was my neighbour for the past 19 years. She lives like 6 houses away. And I don’t remember her!! I’m so sorry Pei Min! I promise to say hello when I see you next time! I was one of those little girls who didn’t come out at 5pm to play with the neighbourhood girls. ;\
I should have gathered everyone and made them take a high school reunion photo.
KY is damn funny! He went as rain and if anybody didn’t know who he was trying to be, he would squirt them.(sounds wrong). I suppose everything cost him less than RM5.
The last time I saw Serge (so long until I even forgot his real name, but I remember your nickname, Serge!) was like back in 2006. He couldn’t recognize me through my make up… this is him trying to guess who I was.
Audrey and Tim (who went as Kurt Cobain. I thought he was some drunk celebrity, with the smeared lip stick and all) having a serious conversation.
The big screen had cheesy halloween messages throughout the night.
Soon Seng and someone whose name I forgot. So sorry! 🙁 ( I love your dread locks though! Stevie Wonder ah?
Death aka Julian Hopkins walks on by. Death needs a drink.
Omg, I feel bad. I know we said hello girls, but I really cannot remember your names. Please let me know in the comment box if you see yourselves, all right? I only remmeber Berry!
When Yee Hou saw me he was like, “Wtf?!’
I saw a really pretty girl strutting around all glammed up. When I peered closer, I was like, “OH!! YAY! Friend!”
According to Hsu Jen, she’s something like a reincarnation of Keira Knightley.
Kel Li, Hsu Jen, and Myself. Kel Li came as the Angel of Death.
That’s Simon and Soon Seng with his fangs! Soon Seng went as Chow Yun Fatt the vampire. Reason being that he is chinese and he can slick his hair back. I bet no one guessed it huh? Other more common guesses were more holy-like.
In photos, I now realize that Simon’s make up is actually more than stitches running down his face. You did something to one half of your face, didn’t you Simon? The left side looks very plasticky!
Here’s one of the church people. Johnny Ong who wore garlic to ward off all the ghouls that night (so did your neighbours enjoy a good Bak Kut Teh session ah Johnny?:D ), Dominic who came as the Hunchback (I don’t think he meant is as the Notre Dam one, but oh well) and our Soon Seng as a minister/vicar/priest.
Here’s wai Ping again before she transformed into the Dead Barbie.
Shaolintiger who came as Bruce Lee, back from the dead!
While hanging around the registration area, I turned around just in time to see another fella turning around and going, “EH!!” when we saw each other. So we camwhored. 🙂 Meet Cojack!
This is Liang, he’s been the emcee for all the Nuffnang parties. And each time also he damn semangat one. I think the most adorable one was when he went for the Wild Live Party dressed as something Tarzany.
Here’s Robb who was too busy for a picture! He went as Nick Carter’s mummy from their Everybody video.
Why is Julian shy?
Myself, Soon Seng, Simon (yeah, I think you definitely did something to your face. egg white?) and Samantha Poh!
Dr. Evil has NO heart!!
Took me awhile to recognize her! HELLO CHEESERLYN MONROE!
Parui why is your hand clenched like that, from that distance, from your mouth, which is strangely pursed with a slight opening? Mm? *innocent question*
David Cheong!! Actually, when I saw him, the name Davy Jones pop into my head though he was lacking some tentacles. He eventually won best dress for the Male Category!
Drunk Kurt Cobain and me!
That’s Kenny and Samantha! Kenny went as Michael Jackson from the Thriller music video.
It’s been three years since I last saw Kenny. It was a time when I was still in college and blogging had only started getting some recognition locally and see how far he’s gone in three short years!
So I was like, “Kenny! You have to remember me.”
He’s like, “Sorry, sorry, I’m really sorry, I can’t remember people. Sorry,” he looked so apologetic.
Then when I pointed to my name tag and it was funny to see recognition dawn upon his blackened face.
Michael why you close your eyes!
Cheesie and Ee Fei, who went as Bjork!(also!)
DKC giving his speech.
Jolyn Goh and her friend, Ame who came as Zombies in Baju Kurung!
Slutty Joker Nurse had to be in the photo as well!
There was this Milk Carton there that night. I can’t seem to find his link anywhere!! WHO ARE YOU OH MYTERIOUS SUSU?
Firdaus and me! Are you a wizard, Firdaus?
Kah Ee, I love your pink wig! Whenever I go to a wig shop, I’ll be sure to don some super colourful wig, just for fun!
I was standing by the bar when I spotted a Joker and a Bjork. We exchanged hellos and then I somehow got the drift that the Joker was a Dentist Joker. So I leaned over and said, “Ooo! Coincidentally, I’m studying dentistry.”
And the Dentist Joker was like, “What! I’m studying dentistry too!”
And we both got so excited. Turns out that he’s also a fourth year dental student. Only one more year to graduation before seeing each other at dental conferences year after year and telling our colleagues that ‘Oh So funny double Joker’ story over and over again.
What are the chances right?? Same make-up(okay, he obviously used buncho paint! Right Bernard?) and same future career!! But people study at UKM..so keng. 🙂
This is Tysern who had some fun with my stethoscope. I thought he looked very charming in that tux.
There’s J-Teoh the Bjork!
Apparently Bjork went to a music awards once with a dead swan around her neck.
Audrey and myself! She went as Ayumi Hamasaki! Go see her latest post. I thought she photoshopped herself into the cd sleeves. Aud, I seriously thought it was you.
Jo-joker had the chance to go on stage. 😀
Nicholas was recruiting a few costumes, as requested by the emcee LIang. I can’t remember for what. I love Carlson(far left)’s outfit though! So awesome! Like a British Chinese Vampire during the Baroque period.
He got sweets for his efforts. See the happiness? Later fly go in.
Dentist Joker and Nurse Joker (Healthcare Jokers) camwhored with Carmen who went as Velma from Scoobydoo and Vvens who went as Michael Jackson’s daughter. Those two girls are just so adorable!!! I’ll put them all on my bed, alongside the Singapore nuffies and my Hannari tofus. They can all be my soft toys. I know I’m sounding a little freaky.
Lie Peh (or Iris, as you all might know her. SORRY AH, I got this thing about calling people with their chinese names if I start off with a chinese name. Which is why my poor boyfriend has not successfully used his English name yet. Poor thing. No, you go ask him what is his english name.) and Meeee!
Lie Yuen spent three days doing this Yukata for Lie Peh. AND I HAD TO TAKE A CAMWHORE PICTURE AND NOT A FULL LENGTH ONE. I so anak derhaka to my housemate right. She burns the midnight oil to SEW (hahahahah..) something for her sister and there I go, forgetting to take a full body picture. But hop over to her blog, should be able to see her white Yukata in all its glory.
Oh, -_- and when I saw Lie Peh, our hands slowly met as we were talking animatedly…and I started shaking it like how people shake hands for the first time when they meet. She was like, “Why are you shaking my hand?” and I’m like, “I don’t know.”
Debfong, Cleopatra(sorry I can’t remember your name!), An Angel (your’s either! 🙁 ) and myself.
Debra was wearing a Dynamitez cheerleading costume. 🙂 I quite liked the whole Klang Valley touch to her costume. Dynamitez from SMKDJ is probably the most well known cheerleading team in Malaysia.
Myself and Victoria!! After knowing each other online since our college days, we finally meet. In such scary make up somemore.
This naughty girl used her mum’s wedding gown as part of her Halloween outfit. Hahaha. Your scary pout is damn cute, Victoria!
And your name, as I told you, is damn secocok with your outfit.
I don’t believe this. I see such a good friend at a party where I am surrounded by mostly strangers and I forget to take a photo with him. =( That’s Chung Lern in the orange vest. He went as one of the construction worker from something YMCA. What do i know.
Serge and the adorable Orang Utan. When I first saw the Orang Utan, I actually smiled and maintained eye contact with it………. and then walked away feeling quite stupid when I realized it was just a toy and no one was inside it.
Celine Yap who came as the dirty little mummy. I think the freakiest part is her eyes and her mouth. It’s like she didn’t wipe her mouth after eating a human.
Curry Egg and myself! I can’t remember what she supposedly came as!
Yatz who came as Sadako! That is his own hair! He also made the outfit himself. A guy sewing, how awesome right?
Alex was so adorable staring out of his father’s slightly stained reading glasses. I bet his dad and Victoria’s mum are wondering what their kids are trying to say…..
Alex went as a mad scientist. Geeks are in, Alex! Consider investing in a pair. Will be a hit with the ladies. My classmate saw your photo and she was like, “OMG SO CUTE!!!”
Jamie Liew, whom I met for the first time that night. Can you believe that she’s only 16? =)
There were Mummy wrapping games.
Can breathe ah?
Sue who came as Lindsay Lohan. You can’t see her slit wrists in this picture!
Kit Mey!! At long last we meet! I’ve seen her on blogs for a few years, and these are real life friends’ blogs. Therefore, it was only a matter of time before we met! She came as Blair Waldorf!
Kit Mey is Abby’s really really close friend in Singapore, as they are both working at OCBC Singapore together. Yeap, crazy girl came back for the weekend! 🙂 I had fun talking to you girl! I don’t know how you could carry out *that*(you know i know) conversation with me in full make up.
Then it was time for a game of Balloon popping. Not my scene. I have a terrible phobia of Balloons bursting. I blew my balloon and threw it into the crowd.
Almost like a kid’s birthday party, with all that running around!
Vicar and the demonic nurse.
Kelz doing her thang which eventually won her the Nokia handphone for Best Silent Dancer!
We got in on the fun too! No one noticed my blinged ipod until I pressed it up against their faces. 🙁
There he is! Chee Wei!! He was one of the hotter seniors back in school. It was really surprising to bump into him at a Halloween party, of all places! And that’s the very beautiful Pam Song. 🙂 I know in this entire post, I’ve been going like, “I love your… I like your…*something Halloowen related.*”
But I really really like your skin! 🙂
The crowd from where I was, while I was being nominated for best dressed. I’m not sure if I deserved it as my outfit was quite basic. The face abit complex lah, but there were many others out there that night who was scarier. BUT THANKS FOR THE PHONE ANYWAY!
Sure feels nice to stand up on stage.
Kurt Cobain! Liang damn funny, he touched his throat to see if there was a hole anywhere where smoke could come out. LOL.
This is a Desperate Housewive. I’m sorry, I didn’t get your name and neither did I see your link anywhere. ;\
Parui Hilton, the star of the night. In this photo, he was telling me about the cost of his entire outfit. It came up to about RM200. I particularly remember him pointing out a heart bling ring to me and said, “This is RM25!”
He was even shopping at Sg. Wang for his heels earlier on in the day.
Davy Jones won!
Desperate Housewive has human heads for dinner.
Can you see her dinner?
The dinner and I sharing a light moment.
Davy Jones carving the head. (like as in turkey gedit bwahaha)
Karena and Jamie! I love (there I go again) Karena’s white eyeliner!
Damn erotic right you Lie Peh. Ham sap por! (look who’s talking right..hahahahah)
Gotta love Velma’s glasses!
I finally got to meet Chris Tock (sorry forgot to take a proper picture 🙁 ) and a fellow Subang girl called Zoe. I wonder how she got her face to look so porcelain. Born like that or awesome make up skills? And the dripping gash is such a beautiful touch.
The best dressed winners with their new phones.
Copykate and myself! She went as a French Maid, right?
Tim couldn’t tahan the wig any longer. Audrey looks damn beautiful .. eh, if you put your palm out and block Tim and myself out(especially me), it looks like Soon Seng and Audrey’s wedding photo. Then if you unblock Tim, he looks like a guest at their wedding.
What an innovative way to announce good news to the world eh?? *wink wink*
I damn not shy, I asked them straight when I observed their mannerisms around each other for awhile.
This is Mike Yip, the great photographer!!
Chee Wei and myself.
A new friend, Jason, and myself.
Nicholas brought Parui home that night.
Parui didn’t shave! Never put foundation also!
This is Jessie!!
Thomas who is DAMN tall! He went as Gene Simmons. (Did I get the name right?)
Sherrymint and myself. My neighbour!! 🙂
We adjourned to Pavillion for some coffee. This is the Joker Nurse reminding you where you parked your car.
It was fun walking into Pavillion in my costume, getting stares from the people around us. Kelz, Jen and the rest at least had each other. Bloody hell, I was walking alone with Soon Seng (whose Chow Yun Fat Vampire-ness disapearred after awhile)…and I still muka tebal (HAHA) go and ask the security guards for directions to Starbucks.
This is Hikaru, the mummy. He bought a bale of cloth and just wrapped himself up, like well, a mummy.
Yatz wrinkly skin which he made with starch!
After yamchaing at Starbucks Pavillion, the two of us walked from one end of the eatery boulevard-ish place to the other, getting stares from the yamcha crowd.
I waved and smiled at random strangers while Yatz emoed next to me with his long hair. I seriously felt like some Ah Kua layaning random men at one point of my waving and smile-flashing.
A few people even came up to take pictures with us.
A middle eastern couple saw us crossing the road and motioned to take a photo. We declined, thinking that they wanted to help us take a photo. However, the guy himself wanted to take a photo of us ghouls!
So we were on their video camera for abit and I said “Hello! Welcome to Malaysia. Everyone in Malaysia looks like that!”
Back home, Mervyn roused from his slumber and couldn’t wait to pry open the Nokia Box. He has this thing about unboxing gadgets. Watches Youtube videos of gadgets being unboxed. My brother has strange interests.
The Nokia 5220 Xpressmusic truly lives up to its name. I wanted to send an sms, I accidentally turned the music on. I want to take a picture, I accidentally turned the music on. I want to go to the menu, I accidentally turned the music on. I put the phone down on the table, the musicÂ turns on by itself.
Naw, just kidding. But the buttons must be too small for my fingers or else I would be able to go to what I want and not turn the music on all the time.
But this phone will be awesome for my mum as she is a music teacher. Music teachers get music phones!
Slim phones are so sexy.
The back part.
My brother said this phone was very “Happening” and so he drafted an sms to fit the look.
5 Universal Music CD’s came along with my prize. I’m thinking of giving my Rock music loving classmates one of those rock cds. Not my kind of thing!
I must be getting old as I didn’t go like all out trigger happy. So I hope you don’t mind, but I have stolen photos from some of your blogs as they are AWESOME!
Here is KlubbKidd who went as the deceased Kurt Cobain.
The beautiful nuffies. Thanks Mike Yip!
The Orang Utan gets lucky.
Chung Lern and his pal! Thanks Jeffro!
Skyler and Simon! I didn’t get a picture with you Skyler!! 🙁 Skyler went as Amy Winehouse!
An awesome photo of Wai Ping’s dead barbie! I love it! Thanks Yatz!
Hikaru trying to murder Sherrymint. I like this photo!
Flirting with Yee Hou. Thanks Serge!
Grinning happily after receiving my phone. Thank you Shaolintiger!
The runner ups were supposed to dance on stage. Hope I didn’t make a fool out of myself.
Parui very pretty from this angle.
Debra and Sheng Mae, who came as Paris Hilton in jail. Thanks Debra!
Amy WInehouse kena accident! If I’m not mistaken, there were awesome tattoos on your back! Min Li, right?
Thanks Victoria.:P Sorry for stealing!
This guy is QUITE awesome. Should have been a runner-up. I’m sure the judges had such a tough time. He even made the hour glass himself.
Lie Peh being happy for me for winning the Nokia 5220! Thanks Vvens for the pics!
“Go lower abit,” said Joker.
HAHAHHAHHAA I love this picture. Sorry for ruining it, guys.
I went up to the Milk boy and asked him (through his opening), “May I suck on you?!” and proceeded to suck on him (ooh) as he bent down. Cameras flashed from all directions. Thanks for the photo, Soon Chuan!
The top bloggers were called to start off a few games.
From left: Kenny, Nicholas (Agent to Top Bloggers), Cheesie, Kimcun.
Aaron =( Thank you for the beautiful photos. Next time come scream at me so I know who you are as I’ve never seen you in person before.
Joker on a perpetual diet.
One of my favourite photos from his collection!
YMCA and Jail Bird paris!
That’s Aaron and Hsu Jen. Why are the colours SO DAMN NICE?!
Jeffro looking like a Satanic DJ.
Thought I should end the post with photos of my FIRST ever Halloween party from way back in 2004. It was one crazy night where Sush, Chien, Barry and I went around trick or treating. Everyone was still in Subang at that time and therefore we got layaned quite a bit.
I demolished my baju kurung too.
All of us looked so young. ;| I was only 17 then. Sigh.
Abit too much red eh! But I was really happy with it at that time.
Good times. 🙂
Our first casualty: Siow E-Guy!
Barry killed me.
I hope no one’s computer died after reading this post.
