IT’S Halloween! I’ve never really been that into it – possibly because I have a face that just scares people naturally!
All that letting loose reminds me of, well, work. It’s what I do for a living.
However, for Americans, it’s big business. An eight BILLION dollar business.
They go crazy for it. I visited Mr Bones’ Pumpkin Patch here in LA. It’s the one where you see Heidi Klum and the like visit with their kids for pony rides, pumpkin-carving and Botox. OK, I made the last one up.
I popped in to my local costume shop on Hollywood Boulevard to get the lowdown on Tinseltown’s favourite cozzies this year.
There’s tacky – the Kim Kardashian Robbery outfit (I kid you not).
And, can you believe that some people want to dress as terrorists? Really? With everything going on in the world that’s what some weird individuals think is an acceptable bit of “fun”?
Anyway, the top three this year are . . .
At 3. Always a crowd pleaser, The Joker. The old Batman villain is forever a goodie.
At 2. Go go for Pokemon, it’s Pikachu. Yes, the craze that’s had everyone blundering blindly around, looking at their mobiles.
Actually, that’s pretty much what happens anyway.
And at number 1 it’s actually a pairing, in the shape of Trump and Clinton.
On the subject of the not-so-dynamic duo, we saw the third and final Presidential Debate
Who won? Clinton or Trump?
Actually, I know the big winner – the US.
Not the United States but us, as that was the last one!
That’s it over until the election on November 8 and it can’t come soon enough for everyone out here.
However, Hillary did have a couple of great lines the night afterwards.
She said: “People accuse me of being boring but I’m the life and soul of every party I attend. I’ve been to three!”
Anyway, back to the other scary stuff, Halloween.
My choice this year…
I always have my old go-to, Dr Frank-N-Furter from that evergreen classic, The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
But I also had some help this year from my pals at Universal Studios Hollywood who have their Halloween Horror Nights throughout the season.
They transformed me with a stars and stripes horror mask-look. Yes, I know what you’re thinking – it’s a great improvement!
