Halloween hangover: Alice in Wonderland and beyond

And just like that, the long weekend's over. It's back to work and there's absolutely nothing to cheer us up but those fresh memories from that little fun day called Halloween.

After going Goldilocks and the Three Bears last year, My Bibe and I went for another fairy tale theme this year: Alice in Wonderland. Or Underland, whatever. (I was also The Joker in 2008, a devil-turned-angel in 2010, and Dr. Sheldon Cooper of The Big Bang Theory in 2011.)

My Bibe, of course, was Alice and I was The White Rabbit. No, I didn't put on a gargantuan bunny suit. I wore a suit but I had bunny ears and bunny paws. And a bunny tail.

Alice all grown up and wearing heels with The White Rabbit all suited up and smirking.

Here are some photos of us and of our little excursion into some floors in the building to check out how they're celebrating Halloween:

Alice checking out the world of Super Mario Bros.

Alice playing cute. But she is cute, isn't she?

Alice using Waze to find her way back to the rabbit hole.

07ADM_0109
Oh no, we're late! This is so me, fidgety and all.

08ADM_0112
But oh, can I show you my bunny tail first?

09ADM_0132
Time to run now.

10ADM_0183
Alice, common now! We're running late!

11ADM_0172
So we left the Super Mario gang behind. Too many Marios and Luigis there.

12ADM_0197
Sshh...we're at Ayala Avenue.

13ADM_0210
Alice in the midst of all this urban chaos.

14ADM_0193
The White Rabbit pondering on whether or not the city life suits him.

15ADM_0214
Common now, White Rabbit! Let's go.

An overexposed shot, but I love the effect.

17ADM_0293
Alice went to the carnivale.

18ADM_0244
This floor won 1st place again--three years in a row. I mean, isn't the carousel alone enough to convince anyone?

19ADM_0252
To everyone who's afraid of clowns, this one's for you.

20ADM_0240
Alice with a mime performer.

21ADM_0283
A photo booth for the tots. Oops, I mean photo BOO.

22ADM_0279
They had everything from fortune tellers to puppet shows and every familiar game you see in a carnival. And yes, they do have a horror booth. What's even more astounding is that there's a long line going inside. Crazy!

23ADM_0300
Such a festive atmosphere. I just love it.

24ADM_0311
Alice soon ventured into another carnivale at a different floor.

25ADM_0326
And she finally saw Kuba Bear! But I think Kuba Bear is taking advantage of Alice. Dirty o'l bear!

26ADM_0304
She also met some princesses at the fair.

27ADM_0317
Wait, I had to tell Kuba Bear he better watch his paws next time or else...

28ADM_0335
I'm thinking of flying hot air balloons.

29ADM_0340
Awesome time. Too bad there was no more ice cream. Or cotton candy.

30ADM_0348
Alice at "Deathnyland." They won third place.

Later in the evening we met with some friends for an impromptu gathering at Commune. Guys, we really should plan a party next time. Seriously.

31ADM_0381
Alice no more. She's grown horns already!

32ADM_0372
Happy Halloween!

Till next year!
