Black Cat Bash on October 24: Great DJs, Venue, and Cause!

It’s true, I attend costume parties throughout the year (the occasional themed house party and Burning Man camp fundraisers), so it’s no surprise that October is one of my favorite party months, with so many Halloween parties to attend. Why wait until October 31 to dress up and get down on the dance floor?

I’m excited to start my Halloween festivities early this year by attending the Black Cat Bash on Saturday, October 24th!

This second annual fundraiser for the Seattle Humane Society is a dance party that is not to be missed. One of my favorite DJs, KEXP’s DJ Michele Myers (also a burner), will be spinning from 10pm – midnight, with the fab DJ Baby Van Beezly before and after. For those of us who enjoy a break from the electronic music scene, this is the party for you: music from the 80s to today, including pop hits, soul, and guilty pleasures. The dance music was awesome last year and I know we are in for the same again this year. You can even tweet your music requests to @blackcatbash before the party!

100% of the net proceeds from the event will go to the Seattle Humane Society.

Disney Villians do Chicago’s “Spell Block Tango” – best Halloween anything I’ve seen all year

If you know me, it may come as no surprise that Halloween is one of my favorite times of year. Though I costume myself up for parties throughtout the year, October/November certainly has more costume events than other times of the year! So far, I’m on my third costume party of the month (Mermaid, Cavewoman, Chimera) and plan on going to one more on actual halloween (Chimera reprise) and then a costume party on Saturday (One of the reveurs from The Night Circus).

SO…what’s the best Halloween themed anything I’ve seen this year so far?

Hands down it has to be this video, The Spell Block Tango by Todrick Hall.  In this music video the bad girls of the musical Chicago are replaced with Disney villians.  Not kid appropriate (at least, not in my book).  But FAB U LOUS! What Disney Villian have you always wanted to dress up as?
