On October 31st, 2008, I dressed up as Elliot from the Steven Spielberg cult classic, “E.T.” That night with friends, I went out to a costume contest at a local restaurant in my area (in Japan.) I went in with a lot of confidence, and my time came up when I needed to showcase my costume infront of the 100 or so people who were there that night. I grabbed the mic and hummed the theme song to the movie and was sure I had just won. After I sat down, a woman dressed up as Tina Turner went up, the crowd went crazy. After Tina, a dog dressed up as a bumble bee went up and did nothing. It was time, they announced the winners, “In first place…..THE BUMBLE BEE DOG!” I was so outraged! I wanted to take my burrito and smash it on the ground. That dog hadnt spent the last two months preparing his costume for this event! Here is a drawing of E.T. enjoy. I am already preparing for next year, oh you’ll see!
