I am presently doing a Internship in Hong Kong and was lucky enough to be part of Halloween party here! This is completely not my typical instructables but I just wanted to share what I am living in this part of the world. Just for fun.
To understand this concept and the point of my costume, you have to understand how Halloween is in Hong Kong. Using words will not cut it, pictures will show you what it is and how many people there is in streets of Hong Kong.
Here is the flickr photo set
You really have to live it to understand how crazy it is.
Hong Kong is the 4th most dense population on earth.6480/km2 (16,576/sq mi)
That is 6,480 people per square kilometer.
The US has 32/km2 (83/sq mi) and Canada is 3.4/km2 (8.7/sq mi).
I can guarantee you that halloween night is probably the most dense place ever.
That is only one part of the story, the place where all the fun begins is Lan Kwai Fong, it is the bar area where Gwailo goes. Gwailo means foreign devil or Ghost man describing white people in China.
That part of town is on the island of HK. It is subway station is call Central.
This is where you see all the bars and hookers.
The story continues on next page...

Step 1: The concept of the costume
That was funny. All night people where just taking pictures and pictures of strangers in costume. The funny part is, most of the costume where just a mask on there face and still, people where freaking out and taking pictures. I saw some great costumes but in general, it was all ordinary stuff. 99% of all the people did not have costume, just there for the show and taking pictures.
At the end of our trip, we sat and started talking and looking around and a idea strict me for a Halloween costume. A very simple costume. I will be a sandwich man with two BIG sign of " NO PICTURES"
I also decided to try something new and had a message on my sign saying " NO PICTURES if you do, please send them here: NOpictures2010@gmail.com" people can send me there pictures by email.
