Costumes have always been festive in Los Angeles when it comes to Halloween. I don’t think any other area of the country goes all out in the costume department, well maybe New Orleans?
So Halloween parties are all over the place the week of Halloween and no one throws a better Halloween party than Hef. It’s his favorite and he goes all out with grave sites, a haunted house and hired actors that dress up as creatures to jump out at you. This Halloween party was the biggest I’ve ever seen. Apparently there were 1500 people invited and massive security.
In fact I was upset that they took away my borrowed rhinestone handcuffs that went with my “Capt. Cuff Me” cop outfit!
Like I was going to do some damage with them? Ronn was dressed as my prisoner of course and what a cute jailbird he was.
In spite of it all we managed to have fun with artist Michael Mobius who was dressed as a doctor. The night before Hef’s party we went down to Hermosa Beach to my girlfriend Alana Curry’s Halloween bash with Wally who dressed as a gangster and Lori who made a great catwoman. A smaller more intimate gathering is always more my style and we all fit our parts well.So trick or treat, we hope your Halloween is fun and safe and no matter how you dress, make sure you play the part well.
It was a fun movie night at the Playboy mansion for Ronn and I had the pleasure of introducing Hef to one of his favorite TV stars, Michael C. Hall who plays “Dexter” on the popular Showtime drama. Our dear friend Wally Crowder who is the stunt coordinator on Dexter and his lovely wife Lori joined us in what seemed to be quite a moment for both Michael and Hef. Since Ronn and I saw Hef tweeting about watching Dexter and our friend Wally worked on the show, we thought we’d treat Hef for a change to something we knew he’d enjoy. Michael had never been to the Playboy mansion and was thrilled to meet Hef along with his girlfriend Morgan. I personally gave Michael a tour of the famous Grotto and Hef’s amazing zoo.
Then we had a wonderful dinner and it was such a pleasure to get to know the man behind serial killer, “Dexter.” Turns out I’m a little older than Michael and he admitted he saw his first Playboy in 1985 as he turned 14 right before my eyes. It was very cute to see the boy in him.
Michael was sweet enough to bring Hef a DVD of the latest season of Dexter and Hef in turn presented Michael with the latest issue of Playboy. Hef was so excited to show Michael the very first page of the new issue because it was a 2 page ad for none other than “Dexter.” Needless to say the two of them bonded in a very special way and now Michael is part of the Playboy family. We enjoyed the movie “Lawless” with Shia LeBeauf and I don’t think Dexter is all that bad now. In fact we may end up hanging out with him more often! A special thank you to our wonderful friends Alison and Joel who helped make this all possible. It was beautiful to watch Hef and Dexter gush over each other, who knew?
