First, I and my friends went to Walmart to buy pumpkins and candles. It was the first time for me to carve pumpkins, and I decided to make simple but scary looking pumpkin that had inverted triangle eyes and sharp teeth. Pumpkins that I and friends carved looked great with candles in them. After that, my Japanese friend, Keiko, told me that we should be in a hurry of buying costumes, so we looked around many websites. There were tons of costumes with diverse themes, but I was not used to pick and wear unique costumes to wear in front of others, so I just chose to wear simple Native American costume with feather hair band and brown boots. The next day, I went to Kansas City with my friends to go to hunted house. A giant ware wolf was greeting guests at the entrance. Actually, since I had not been to any hunted house before that time, I was really terrified at creepy monsters and threatening-looking ghosts. I had to stick to my friends until I got out of there. One funny thing was we got lost in the maze without any light in it, so we had to walk around the same place over and over again. Finally we could find a new route after asking for help to strangers through a tiny hold on the wall. I sweat a lot in the hunted house, but it was really fun. My friends told me I was stupidly hilarious because I kept screaming in weird voice until I came out of there.
We heard a huge Halloween party, so called “Terror party”, was going to be held in Union Station in Kansas City. We bought a ticket to get inside, and I could already feel excitement from everywhere even before the party got started. There were many kinds of drinks along the corner, and loud music made everyone dance to the beat of DJ there. What was the most amazing was how creative everyone about their costumes. All the people who came to enjoy terror party turned into totally different person from who they were. Guys and girls disguised into astronauts with a big bag sparkling with various colors of lights, presidents with neat suits and grey color hair, pilots, Peter Pan, Johnny Depp of scissor hands and Pirates of Carribean, Greek god and goddess, Kate Perry, sexy police officers, Wally from “where is Wally’, Shower machine, Quidditch and Hermione of Harry Potter, nerd with broken eyeglasses and bunch of pens in the pocket of shirt, Americans in medieval age. I was so excited taking pictures with people there, drinking, dancing on the floor, talking and shouting with them.
I still can talk more about what costumes people wore at Terror party or how Halloween was like that I experienced. I had a blast on the Halloween last year. Carving candles, ordering costumes with friends, going to hunted house before Halloween, and going to a “Terror Party” on the day of Halloween was the most memorable things that I have ever done for Halloween or any other holidays. I could truly feel to my skin what Halloween spirit was. I wish I can enjoy Halloween like last year again.
