After bringing the scaffolding home from the studio, rigging an old sushi restaurant sign on top, and lighting it for two nights, the neighborhood was primed for the KaBOOki HauNted SuSHi BaR.

kabuki_house.jpgWe got around 600+ kids and lots of curious adults. It was great fun to have them explain their costumes before they ordered from the sushi bar, and actually turned into a long line for most the evening. Lots of ninja, goth cheerleaders, spider men and women, and a few chickens and dinosaurs.

After most of the trick-or-treaters left, a ghost visited our house. I got this photo as evidence, but later found out the ghost was actually a remote-control invention built on a wheelchair base. I guess craziness attracts craziness. But what do you expect from a girl in a retro kimono, ghoul face, and swiss cheese watch?



  • The subsequent time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I do know it was my choice to read, however I truly thought youd have something fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could possibly fix in case you werent too busy in search of attention.

  • Next year I’m coming to your house on Halloween. I had one pirate, a chicken, and four cute young girls dressed as football players. Snooze!

  • Hi Mary! it was so great of you to bring extra candy when our stock started to get thin. Your Skittles and Starbursts were big hits. Thanks for the rescue!

  • John Belushi’s ghost was also there. i recognized him by the black curly hair and the samurai sword action. He looks much better postmortem having dropped about 80 lbs and is far more attractive! He was quite the appropriate consort for the barmaid. Definitely THE trick or treat destination in the city. i overheard a phone conversation down the block that included detailed directions to the Kabooki house…Big, big fun.
