Halloween Party - Heroes and Villains the 13th: Horrors Edition

 

Article by: Geek Girl Critical Miss
My husband Retro Joad and I have been hosting the biggest geek Halloween party in our city for 13 years. It started off small and has turned into this event that got bigger than we ever imagined. We wanted a party where geeks could go as some obscure character from one episode of Doctor Who and be recognized. This party has grown into something amazing, where cosplayers and costumers come to party, have fun, win prizes and even debut costumes.
This year we had a bigger venue, so we partnered with Open Shutter Photography to set up a booth and all the pictures would be included with the ticket price. We thought this year was going to be awesome, however we soon learned that the fact that it was the 13th party, we were in for a world of bad luck.

From losing our original contact, to the distance to the venue, to the first shuttle bus being delayed, to miscommunications with the venue, to the wrong cables being sent for the speakers, to the lights not being on in the parking lot, things just kept happening, and the outcome of the party looked bleak. However, once the music started playing and the light problem was fixed, this party rocked the house.

We have a wonderful crew that helps us out every year, fantastic and generous sponsors and all the attendees, without all these people this party would not happen. All we have been seeing the last two days are comments all over facebook about how much fun everyone had. We are very lucky to have such a great cosplay community in Ottawa and that is the reason why we put so much effort into this party every year. We can't wait for the next one (and really happy that it's not unlucky 13 :P)

These are but a sampling of all the great shots that Richard took throughout the night.
