Something is terribly wrong here: where is Adam, he is need.

My whole morning was wasted looking up info about Halloween on the net. And while work is pilling up, my eyes are getting tired, and I am still not finding what I am looking for, anything about what makes Halloween sexy, I come to the inevitable conclusion that I will need to write about it myself, and enlighten the world with my genius.

All sources are a letdown. Vice magazine, living out its boring fixation, only talks about drugs, nothing about the night of horror about to engulf us. The Montreal Mirror amazingly covers the party scene for the Halloween weekend (something they do much better than us) but fails to address my quest of finding-out what makes a Halloween sexy.

All I find are the typical rants on what costumes you should not wear this year. What boredom, I donít need ridiculous photos with a whole article telling me what not to dress into (I must admit the photos are pretty funny sometimes). The list is short and obvious:
  • The Crow
  • The Joker
  • Obama
  • Pimp and Ho
  • A pumpkin
  • Yourself (whatever that is)

Iíll spare you the witty humorous hits on the costumes listed above. All you have to do is picture yourself and a ton of other people in the same costume at the same party to see why this list exists.

Obviously the fun of Halloween is to dress up, but today I came to the conclusion that the real fun, and what everyone is really trying to do, is to dress up into something sexy.

I donít only mean sexy as in muscles, pecks, bare chest, stoking-clad legs, short skirts and push-up bras. Thatís only one way, the most obvious, and the easiest to pull-out for Halloween.

I mean sexy as in "notice me now" sexy, as in "pay more attention to me than you usually do" way. That includes all sorts of scary, original or flamboyant costumes. Basically, the goal is to change your appearance in a drastic way, to be someone else for one night, someone new for people to re-discover again, while at the same time youíre re-discovering them too.

Basically, a bit like the role playing night of Peter and Louis, but played out in the open and with a bunch of different people.

Yeah, this pretty much sums up what Halloween is really all about. The question is now: what I am going to dress up into, for people to notice me (more than they usually do).

PS: If you simply wanted to get info on what nightclub, bar, party or other pagan ritual to hit-up this weekend in Montreal, then just visit the link to the Mirror's party guide at the beginning of the article. They've done all the work for us.

I will however recommend, for those looking for a huge rave party, with a yet to be announced location (like in the good old days of secret raves), to search for "Blacklight Quebec" on Facebook. It will feature Alice and the Serial Numbers, which creates music like this:
