Nanjing Halloween Part Deux

With the help of some other resident teachers, we hosted the now second annual Nanjing Halloween Party.

To really appreciate these photos, however, you need to understand that Halloween is a uniquely American holiday. Very few costumes can be found; what is available is for children. So everyone at our party had to use their creative juices.

Prize for most creative, hand crafted: Washington, as a tube of Crest Tooth Paste.

The prize for the most authentic goes to Julia, as a Chinese Police Officer, using her father’s uniform, and complete with accessories: a badge, walkie-talkie, and a suction dart gun.

The best mustache was a tie between Julia and Matt, our spacecowboy.

It would not be a Chinese Party without games! This is called: shoot and pop the balloon.
