Belated Halloween Scare!

On Saturday (the day after Halloween), we went into Seoul to do a little shopping and to try out a new Mexican restaurant I had read about on the Internet. We were about a block from the Kyobo bookstore when we ran into this spider walking down the sidewalk. Halloween is not really celebrated in Korea but with all the Western influences things are a changing.

This is the creepiest costume that I have ever seen in person. The guy even walked like a spider. He came right at me and all I could think of to do was grab my camera and start shooting.

We noticed as we approached the spider that there were a couple of busloads of police officers just standing around. I'm still not sure why they were there - maybe security for the spider. Although they tried to ignore him as he walked by.
One of the best costumes of all times!

They were probably keeping an eye on him...worried he would need to be locked up or something! Great costume!

Holly: Curt wishes we had taken video because he walked like a spider too.

Helena: Kyobo bookstore is one of our favorite places. We are both bookworms.
