Thanks to my super sweet sister, we were the Incredibles this past Halloween. Of course, we came without a Dash, Violet and Jack Jack (like my sis' family last year), but we were Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl: The Early Years.
My sis mailed us the costumes for our superhero themed party and we had so much fun with them, that we just wore them to everything, all weekend.
Don't worry Sis, they're still in one piece and unscathed. :)
One thing that surprised us though was just how many people asked to have their pictures taken with us. I'm not even talking about at the parties we went to, we kept getting stopped by Singaporeans walking along the street. We probably got stopped by at least eight random strangers to have our pictures taken as we were walking to our numerous destinations.
The conversations usually went as such:
"Uh sah, can I take a photo?"
"Sure. Why not."
"Oh great. Mr. and Mrs. Superman."
"Uh no, but sure. Whatever you wanna call us."
Several people said this. Now, I know The Incredibles is an American movie, but come onnnnn people. I know Singapore has at least been exposed to it.
For the locals that were this clueless, I'm sure they didn't even know we were celebrating Halloween. To them we're just the freaks walking around like super heroes.
I'm alright with that.
