Night of the Living Artisans

So here are the promised vendor costumes. I can’t believe how intricate and beautiful some of them were.
Some of them were also intricate and gross.
Anyways, I want to thank the vendors for taking time out of selling their wares (doesn’t that sound sort of like
something a traveling medieval metalsmith would do?) to let me take their photos.
I just had to document the creativity. Also, I will start a list of the vendors and their websites at the end of this post.
If you know of a vendor who I photographed that isn’t on the list–please let me know.
It’s not like my blog is hugely popular, but every little bit helps, right?

This dude had MAGGOTS crawling out of his face.

ties without borders
Golf hat: check. Bunch of ties: check. Fanny pack: check. Awesome vintage goods? CHECK.
Bought a teal member’s-only jacket wannabe for 10 bucks.
That makes 4 members-only or members-only-like jackets I own. Obsessed much?

50s diner
Look at the fucking ANTS on her skirt. I want to be her friend.

So, uh, these buddies are just chillin’. You know. Laid back.

frozen titanic
Frozen Titanic victim. Look at the gorgeous amount of detailing put into this. Dang, girl.

zombie bride
This girl looks super happy to be dead. Maybe it’s the blue hair. Or the beautiful lace shawl.

titanic victim
This girl had, in my opinion, the most beautiful costume. She was a little reluctant to be photographed, though.

lego batman
Lego. Fucking. Batman. There are no words.

Zombie Holly Golightly. Executed perfectly.

dead construction worker
This was definitely an impressive and gross costume. It won the contest. Well-deserved.

Kurt Cobain
Zombie Kurt Cobain. Too soon?

(Oh, i’d like to point out that some of these people aren’t vendors.)
