La Buena Vida Halloween Party - October 30, 2010

It was not a dark and stormy night - that would have created more atmosphere - and Halloween was celebrated one night early in Akumal, and the party at La Buena Vida drew a wild and crazy assortment of characters and costumes to celebrate and have fun.  Needless to say, an abso-looootely mmmmmmmaahhhhh-vellloussss time was had by all, as evidenced by the enclosed photos.

Thanks to Laura Bush for the photos, and more can be found on Laura's 2010 Halloween Album.

The party started at the Lol Ha beach bar where Loquito was the usher.

First stop was the graveyard.

And it was full of huge tarantulas and spiders.

And, one dead soul was dying - or had died - to go along to Buena Vida.

David Wolfe flew in from Canada, and he is ready to do some heavy duty grave robbing.

Russ (the Capitan) and Stephanie (Ginger) are on board to escort Laura through the underworld to La Buena Vida.

Laura doesn't look like "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" but she does have her own tattoo.

A visit to the Day of the Dead altar was a requirement, in order to speak with the Akumalians who have 'passed over'.

Then it's off to Jaimie's haunted La Buena Vida, where it was a dark and scary night.

Hey, this is not too scary after all.

Nah, this looks like fun.

My oh my.....

Myrna and Laura comparing makeup.

Is it an Avatarian???

The local disc jockey, DJ Bob, was on hand spinning the tunes, led by "The Monster Mash"

Elvis, just out of the grave, provided some live entertainment.

Is THAT the "Monster Mash"?

Well rattle my bones and shake those timbers, there's a one-eyed cat in the kitchen door.

Is that Butch? Has he returned for an another Akumal Halloween?

The "Pussycats" are checking it out.

Is that The Joker ?

Is this Little Bo Peep, with a dog???

Zorro has captured The Little Old Lady Who Lived in a Shoe, and now he does not know what to do.

Looks like she has found a Navi to take her back to Pandora.

"Come fly with me. . . . "

Navi or no Navi, you ain't getting me up there.

I'll be your agent.

Yeah, go ahead and do it.

Now that is a colorful group.

Wanna see my tattoos?



Is that Mariana, Pinicchio, or George W Bush?

Little old lady waves goodbye before heading off to Pandora.

It's judging time, and Asterix is looking like a favorite of the crowd.

What"? She's still here and in the running.

The Scream ain't too happy with the proceedings.

Russ and Dave lament, "I could have been somebody. I could have been a winner."

Look at me. I am somebody.

Whoa. Now that's scary!!!!

Jaime announces the winners, runnerups, and the losers.

The Hulk is mad.

Who is going to do what????
