A couple of days ago, we thought about taking pictures of people on Halloween. We first decided to go to Denver downtown, but then changed our mind and decided to check out the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder instead. I’m glad that we picked Boulder, because people were awesome, their costumes were very creative and funny and above all – we had a lot of fun!!!

We started out by taking pictures of families with kids:
Then, we met our first interesting character, who was dressed as Christ:
Then a penguin:
With a piggy:
And their friend:
Then, we met Steve, who was dressed as a cardinal. He turned out to be a photographer himself :)
He had one of the best-looking costumes and I asked him to pose several times for me.
Pokahontas and Waldo:
This next costume of a spider was definitely the best costume I have ever seen in my life. Apparently, the lady that was wearing it is actually the creator of the costume and she runs a costume-design company in Boulder. People couldn’t resist and were constantly asking her for a photo. I was able to convince her to come over to our spot and pose for us:
Wow, what an expression!
Next, an Indian girl visited us:
With her bunny friend:
A headless horseman posed for us a few times as well:
Then, we were visited by a couple of clowns:
These guys were definitely some of the best vampires we saw that day. They covered themselves in blood and did everything they can to look real.
And his “captain” mommy:
More kids with fun ideas:
And more vampires:
This guy was my favorite! He got into his character better than anybody else and was refreshing his mouth with “blood” to get the perfect shot.
He definitely nailed this one and it is definitely the picture of the day!
Other interesting characters, including the “Broccoli” man, who had real broccoli attached to his head:
These guys showed up a little later and posed for us as a group:
Lots of fun characters, so I asked some of them to pose for us in smaller groups. We started out with sexy cops:
Then a priest with a pregnant nun:
Then zombies (they were everywhere):
Then dark knights from LOTR:
And finally a cop with his prisoner:
Our photography show was then stolen by a big group of zombies, who performed Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” zombie dance. It was another tribute to Michael Jackson, similar to the ones you’ve probably seen on Youtube.
They did a really good job and really energized the crowd around them:
By the time I collected my gear, there were 5-6 rows of people in front of me, so all I could do was set my camera to Auto ISO, raise the camera as high up as I could and shoot – that’s why these pictures came out blurry.
