West Hollywood Halloween ’14 Photos

Finally, after that long wait they are online. I was also at Stan Lee’s Comikaze today which would explain why it took so long. I went down going as Green Lantern this year, something I’ve been wanting to do since 2010, before the movie came out with Ryan Renolds, figuring it knowing the movie is coming out the next year and with everyone knowing who that is and likely not thinking of it would work out. But was Jesus instead that year. Then Hesher, then Loki, then last year Timmy Turner which I’ve been wanting to do for even longer.

Before heading down I knew all to well that it was going to rain, but expected it to be light and not only for a short time, and I was right, for a while tip it started falling hard at around 11 and did so for a good while. We decided to take off a bit early because of it, mainly because of how much harder it would be to take photos. But over all it was a good night.

I just hope it doesn’t rain next year.


LA Pride ’14 Photos

As I do every year during the parade, I find myself a way in. This year I was with PFLAG and we were asking to wear red. I put on my shawarma shirt. I got there about 20 minutes later then I wanted to but even then I was still early. I put on my blades and rode from the end of the route to where everyone was gathering, found my group, introduced myself and hung for a bit. I also saw there was some time left before everything started so I went over to see the other floats, talked to some other people and took more photos.

After, 20 minutes we got on Santa Monica Blvd and started walking along the street and soon after our group was announced I hear the name Betty DeGeneres. I rolled up to her and asked “Ellen’s mother?” I gave her a hug and said that I love her daughter. I later got a photo with her which was taken by a friend using his camera so I’ll post that later. While the parade was going on I’ve heard a name shouted out to me a few times and each one I know was to me, Jared Leto. A nice hand full of people called me over, wanted to give me hugs, get photos with me, and play with my hair some. Some other people called me Jesus… [sigh], lame.

After the parade came to an end I, as every year went up and down the blvd to find other people and things to take photos of. After a while I ran into a guy I know and then some others and just ended up hanging out together. At one point I took a photo of one person, talked for a bit and she asked how we’ve like the festival also going. I told her we don’t have tickets because we didn’t want to have to spend $20 per person and then asked, “how many of you ate there here?” and just handed us some free passes. Much love to her.

We went inside and by then it was already getting kind of dark. Wandered around, hung out and had more people stop me saying they love my hair. I’m kind of glad I kept it long for this because I had thought about cutting my hair before the event but I was advised to do so afterwards.

Also, to many hot lesbians


Day of Decision ’13

So the US Supreme Court made a ruling yesterday morning on Prop 8 here in california and DOMA and both got taken down. And now the LGBT folks can get married. So in different cities in california, and I’m sure in some other states had victory rallies and so I was at the one in West Hollywood. Honestly I was expecting more of a party, mainly some speeches going on and after that was over with everyone either went home or walked up to some of the restaurants, bars, or clubs near by on Santa Monica blvd and just partied away there. And in other news some people got really butthurt on the fact DOMA was killed.

But you know the crazies will keep fighting, and I say, make fun of them.


Post Prop 8 Outrage

Photos that I thought I posted on here but turns out I didn’t. This was after the election in ’08 when Prop 8 here in california passed, and that upset a lot of people. Two days after the election there was a massive rally going on in the west LA area going around Westwood, Beverly Hills, and ending up in West Hollywood. A friend of mine wanted to go but she wasn’t sure if she wanted to call sick in work or join up. I let her know if decided to go let me know and I’ll join. She called soon after, met up and rode over. Found a place to park and soon after we found the group coming up to us and walked with them. It was a nice long walk, not entirely sure where we went but I know we did go to this big ass mormon temple I believe was in Westwood because we know the Mormon Church involoved themselves in the push for prop 8 which would explain many of the signs seen.

I just hope this entire mess ends soon.


WeHo Halloween ’12

So I had a good night, had a lot of fun, and I had a bunch of people stop me and ask for a photo as I was going as Loki in the suit from the movie The Avengers during the Germany scene. Some people thought I was Harry Potter, I know, strange. So I heading over with a group of friends and along the way of wondering around ran into some other friends of mine I told about the event along with some other people I’ve meet at cons, like a Dark Helmet from Spaceballs handing out cards for Nerds Like Us. Something I wish I did was take more photos but sometimes it’s hard to do that when there are so many people around but over all it was still great.

then I got back home, and I slept so well

Kanye West – Best Drawing of all Time, of all Time!

Yeah, made this after that odd event when ever that was for a shirt. was going to put on cafepress but the site said something on it about celebrity likenesses are sometimes questionable for products they can sell on there so it’s not recommended. So I just left it alone and now just remembering about it. Thats cool because I didn’t really have anything to post up. Old drawing for the save.


WeHo Halloween ’11

What a night, and I would say better then last year to. This year I went as Hesher from the movie Hesher with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rainn Wilson, and Natalie Portman. It was a rather entertaining movie with the most hilarious vandalism I’ve ever seen happen in it. I almost died when I saw what was put on that one kids car but I’m getting away from the subject. Went down with some friends of mine and met up with a few other people I know and hung for a while and got some nice shots while there.

Now originally this year I was planning of going as Green Lantern and was going to cut my hair (which this is currently batch 3) sometime last month to fit with the costume but I decided to keep it long for what I went as instead. And besides I can always do that again later. I had 2 people know what I was pulling off, one girl think I was some dude from Red Hot Chilly Peppers (eww), another thought I was a hippie, and had one guy that got a photo of me and tell me I have excellent hair. I almost saw a fight happen between a drag queen and an asian dude going as a martini glass, the queen yelled at him to go back to china, to bad the guy was japanese and told him not to worry about it. Last as I was leaving the event I had a cop stop me and ask what was in the bottle. It was a Fiji bottle I relabeled and filled with apple juice. Before I wanted to get a plastic bottle of Jack but I couldn’t find any place around me that had them because I did not want to carry glass around and AJ looks close enough anyways.

That and I’m cheap.

And one more thing, anyone out there that got a photo of me during the event can you email me where you have it posted or send it to me at thesteelshark[at]gmail[dot]com? that would be great.

WeHo Halloween ’10

I have to admit, last year was more fun, likely because last year I got more photos and got there earlier. It might have to due with the fan halloween was on a sunday this year, but none the less it was still slighty entertaining. and now what you have been waiting for, the photos
