So this is part 1 of the Halloween Mega-Thon as seen through Ed Templeton's eyes (and camera)
There will surely be more photos coming soon from Kevin Barnett and Mike Sinclair...
Darth Vader showed up and started light-sabering kid's heads off. If that wasn't lame enough, he then started skating the course...
But he was ripping! And even with a cape! The force is strong with this one. Who the hell is this Dark Lord?
Hell yeah! It's Billy Marks!
Nick T was channelling some David Bowie.
Grant and Rob came dressed as skate-dykes, scissor-kissing all the way up to San Dimas. It would have been great if Grant shaved his beard off, then he would have been just a do-able as Rob. I would totally tap that!
Kevin came a priest, you can tell by the look on his face what he did to little boys before the demo. Crap, I should have arrested him.
Johnny was - wait, just a mexican? Dude, we live in Southern California! Neil Heddings was just dressed as himself.
Lets do that again without the pig, and throw me some mad-dog!
Of course Active Erica was there, but I didn't take it too far like I did last time, and all you get is this innocent photo.
This was Josh from Atascadero? We met him on tour. Remember his hand?
Matt B was a tad creeped out by my commitment to being a cop. PHOTO KEY
Logan Kincade showed up as Albert Einstein dressed as Griffin Collins,----weird.
Einstein should be smart enough to not bend over in front of a horny Darth with a big orange light-saber schlong. Photo Key
I smell a gay porn film coming on...
Ed with John McCain, one old white guy that will NOT be sleeping in the white house for once...
Do you smell bacon? I think I smell bacon...
These kids drove from Mesa, Arizona just to see Toy Machine. THAT is a Loyal Pawn. Anyone reading this from Arizona who didn't drive to California to see our demo on Halloween, is officially BLOWING IT.
Kevin donned the Darth doppelganger and did due diligence in these dire days, duh.
I was gonna use my 'death-deck' but I'm glad a didn't, because I shot my board at 100 miles per hour into some poor kid's shin. He would have been fucked.
Like we always do, the team got right to schralpage
. Austin kick-flipping into a back tail down the hubba... The first thing I did when I started skating was to eat complete shit, and I am pretty sure I broke a rib
. It was pretty hard to breathe, but since I was skating, it wasn't so bad. My cop pants did rip open and I may have flashed a ballsack at the crowd on accident, if so, I'm sorry.
Josh Harmony was all business, his costume was 'worlds nicest boy' and he was ripping.
The smoke machine was used to make our skating 'spooky'. It worked.
Matt B was getting wicked on the obstacles. Backside 180 Nosegrind anyone?
Man, Rob was looking pretty good, is he 18 yet? Marquise was there too!
Chicks dig cops, I got dibs on the bearded lady! Man he looks like some art damaged hippie who just got done doing a fire-stick twirling routine.
After the demo we signed autographs. This girl made these Toy character paintings that made mine look like crud. I was flattered. Look how creepy I am with a mustache. It magnifies the creepy I already have.
After the signing I left to go to Disneyland! That will be part 2 on Ed's part of the site later...
