    Hi guys,

    The big gay Halloween celebration is about to start in New Orleans soon (weekend preceding Halloween) and I wanted to start a thread with the following goals:

    1. Who is going and anyone want to hangout? I am a Nola resident and would be great to meet gay fitness minded out-of-towners.

    2. Costume ideas/problems--what are you doing for your costume? Help me wih mine!

    Let the convo begin......

    I used to go to NOLA for halloween every year. my birthday is that same weekend. but i haven't done it in a few years because of work and (now) school icon_sad.gif

    i always had a blast, and never even did the circuit party thing. just plain ol' bourbon street. and voodoo fest. there's so much to do in NOLA and plenty of RJ'ers live there or nearby too. hope everyone has a good time!

    I live here so i'll technically be "here". I'm not a huge party animal though so I don't usually go to all the craziness (claustrophobia being the main reason and a problem with strobe lights being the other). If anyone wants to hang out while they're here though, i'm down for that icon_cool.gif

    I have a case on Oct. 24th so can't make it, BUT costume ideas for you include (and I'm thinking of what I have seen and was thought "wow, that's hot," every Halloween):

    (1). PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. I've been this 3 times. It's my "go to" when I'm lazy, and/or when I'm traveling and can't extensively prep a costume. It's simple, elegant, and literally turns heads. 4 dollar black cape. Black dress pants. No shirt, shaved chest, and a white mask that still shows your face and that you're attractive. You can't go wrong. The beauty is in the simplicity, less is more. Don't tacky it up with jewels or extensive clothes. Your face and the mask is the selling piece, your chest its foil.

    (2). SEXY WOLVERINE. Not the blue/yellow costume that covers all your skin. Pair of jeans, tight "wife beater" shirt, special claws, and lots of hair gel (or a wig).

    (3). SEXY MARIO/LUIGI. If you can get one friend, then do the old duo sexily.

    Hope these ideas work, or spur further ideas that do work!

    lol that pic of Mario and Luigi. They look gayer than liberace.

    looks like Mario has a boner.

    i like the idea of the phantom costume. Even tho it's not really original.

    the only costume i've considered in recent years would cost too much. Wanted to do an anthropomorphic dragon in an Armani suit but the hot foam latex prosthetics are too $$$$

    We're thinking of going. Have gone the last 4-5 years. Great party, the Lazarus party, and a great cause. A get together before would be fun or if there's enough guys going to the party, some established spot in the venue at a certain time? Anyone know that venue? We just got back from a vaca so will have to see what develops work-wise for my partner before we know for sure.

    We will be there! Getting in Fri thru Mon. Have tkts to the big party Sat night but other than that event, will probably just hit the smaller fun bars. Don't think I'm up for the Oz/ Bourbon crowds.
    We'd love to meet up w some RJ guys.
    The costume theme is 'Descent' this year so I assume that means all things Hades related.

    We should totally get a group together and go ride go-karts out at NOLA Motorsports park where I used to work. (French-built Sodi karts w/ 50mph top speed)

    NOLA Motorsports Park

    :EDIT: the go-kart trip is officially happening and is scheduled tentatively for Saturday afternoon. Right now the preliminary list is as follows:

    Life2short (myself)

    Haven't decided yet. I suggested maybe a get-together at the New Orleans Athletic Club Saturday afternoon before the party on Life2Short's go-cart thread and he got mad. But I'd rather do something like that than drive out to the burbs to go-cart. Any interest?

    Well, you clicked on a thread entitled "RJ New Orleans Meetup: Halloween Go-Karting" and tried to hi-jack it, so I think he had every right to be mad, although I thought he handled it pretty well. icon_confused.gif

    I wasn't mad. I apologized. Wasn't my intent to hijack his thread or his plan. Just thinking out loud. Thought everyone thinking of going to the party would just have a discussion. Didn't realize everyone who has alternative thoughts needs to create a new thread.

    Let's keep this above the 8th grade level, okay? No, you don't need to create a thread for every thought. But I made that thread after multiple people showed interest. If your idea to meet at NOAC gets traction, I encourage you to do the same ;-)

    Eighth grade, huh? Again, my humble apology. Hope y'all have fun. Sounds like you have dibbs on Halloween. I'll not set up a 4th thread.
