I was Tina Belcher for Halloween. For those who don’t know the reference, Tina is the eldest daughter on the animated show Bob’s Burgers. If you have never watched that show, you should. The inspiration came mostly from my friend, Roo. He’s always sending me gifs of Tina’s antics. It’s also inspired by my husband, who is convinced that I was like Tina at 13. He’s kind of right.
Anyhow, after pulling together the costume with stuff in the closet and a few odds and ends picked up for cheap across L.A., we headed to Club Berlin at Alpine Village in Torrance. It was a great night, probably the best Halloween I’ve had in a while. The crowd was fun and energetic. Some good friends hung out with us, including one who was celebrating her birthday. Plus, I did capoeira Tina-style on the dance floor and in the DJ booth. Yes, there’s video. You’ll probably see it at some point. I get a little too into character on Halloween sometimes.
Thanks to everyone who made last night so awesome.
