My costume consists of a pretty funny looking beetle head and a black shirt. During the night, I heard the word for beetle so many times that I finally learned it. Its kabutomushi. Quite an interesting word, I think. Mushi means bug, no big deal there. Kabuto, though, is the word for the big helmets that samurai used to wear.
As the night passed, several bands took turns making the place vibrate. Several times the random person I was talking to one minute was up on stage the next. Halloween is so good.
