BOO-tilicious Wolverine does Beyoncé : Halloween Street Theater

BOO-tilicious Wolverine does Beyoncé : Halloween Street Theater

This is why you live in New York and also why you troll around the streets after the Halloween Parade looking for tricks and treats. After all that live communal street theater and the pressure is off to be a Wolverine you are at liberty to set your “Single Ladies” performance free on the sidewalk.  BOO-tilicious!

A Monster Mash on the Streets

“I have never seen a greater monster or miracle in the world than myself.”

Michel Eyquem, seigneur de Montaigne (1533–1592)

Seeing a monster on the street can make you pick up your pace a little.

Especially if it is a dark windy autumn night and the block you are on has no working street light. And if the  leaves and garbage and random pieces of plastic are swirling in the air and clattering into cluttered little piles in the corners of doorways. Here’s an eclectic collection of spooks and skeletons and wild-eyed beasts created by today’s Street Artists and shot by photographer Jaime Rojo that may make your march along the footpath just a little more mysterious and monstrous as the wind picks up and you rush to your home for safety.

Face Tattoo Cholo Style – Judith Supine Inked by Jesse Hazelip in BK

Here are some hot new shots of stuff on the streets by Judith Supine that seem perfect for startling New Yorkers this week on their way to the haunted house.  Characterized by putrid hot color, recombined body parts of various proportions, a contorted focus on maquillage, it looks like Supine is in full effect for Halloween (or Day of the Dead) this year, and with help from a couple of collaborations.

The first “collabo” is really just about placement next to the colorful geometric colorplay patterning of Anthony Sneed– which on a normal day look bright but next to Judith can appear dimmed in comparison. The second collabo is more of the roughneck kind – bringing more of the west coast SoCal flavor of cholo tattoo – with patterns inked directly on the face by Street Artist/fine artist/illustrator Jesse Hazelip. Given their inherent visual punch, we never really thought of Supine works as a canvas and never really thought the portraits could evoke more evil pranksterism – but seeing these tattooed symbols on the fluorescent faces is going to scare some of the kids next week as they walk by with plastic pumpkin buckets of treats.

Fun Friday 10.29.10 BSA Halloween Special

Fun-Friday

Have a great Halloween Weekend Everybody!

Our longest post ever – scarily long. First we start off with a bunch of cool Street Art that is evocative of Halloween.

Then we hear a special Halloween/Election  message from Christine O’Donnell, a look at tonights’ events including Unified Love Movement’s installation across from MOMA, Erik Burke’s Closing Party, and Crest Hardware’s Pumpkin Carving Party (tonight). Also, video of Dan Witz’s disturbing WTF Street Art, and the most popular person to dress up as.

Careful out there, ya’ll.

Brooklyn Street Art: Halloween Prep and Friday Fun

It’s that time of the year kids! You know what tomorrow is, right?

Where the Wild Things Are

Some Brooklyn kids (ages 4-54) are “getting their HOWWEEN on” starting tonight even though the All Hallows Eve is not until tomorrow. In fact morning rush hour today featured more freaks than usual on the train, so I’m guessing there are a lot of office parties this afternoon. This weekend the streets are going to be crammed with Ghosts, Witches, Shreks, Wild Things, Sexy Nurses, Tea Baggers, Chewbaccas, Balloon Boys, and drag queen Ann Coulters.

My buddy Justin, who’s actually a fashion photographer and cashier at a 99 cent store is re-cycling his Lumberjack/World Wresting Foundation Fan costume from last year and adding a Pabst Blue Ribbon can for a Crunchy Hipster costume – I think the camo-cap will be totally awesome!

I’m thinking of going out as  Sean Connery in the movie Zardoz.

The New York City local Office of Homeland Insecurity has put of these helpful safety guidelines for Trick-Or-Treaters this year, and as a public service we are posting them here.

  1. Cover your entire costume with bright orange reflective tape for safety purposes. Cars should be able to see you before they even take their exit off the BQE.
  2. Submerge your entire costume in a bathtub of flame-retardant before putting on.
  3. Throw all treats directly in the garbage cans on the corner provided by NYC Sanitation. You never know if they’ve been tampered with. When you return home you can eat the treats you bought in an approved chain drugstore.
  4. Do not cross any streets. Drivers are very dangerous.
  5. Walk in groups of 10 or more, all of you armed.
  6. Illuminate your entrance with klieg lights for the safety of your guests.
  7. Instead of dangerous candles in your jack-o-lantern, why not try klieg lights?
  8. Plan your trick-or-treating trip in advance and create a map and exact schedule. Then deliver it to your local police precinct and review it with an officer who will be on duty during that time.
  9. Avoid people in costumes. You don’t know who they are.
  10. Be Safe and Have Fun!

Here’s an Indian “Thriller” to Get You In the Mood.

Enjoy this Halloween Weekend, there are only a couple more before the Earth is consumed in fire, locusts, and swine flu.
