Get your devil ears ready for Veggie Conquest’s first Halloween party on Friday, October 29! Emceed by Michael Parrish Dudell of Ecorazzi, Vegdaily.com and Live a Damn radio, and with musical stylings by DJ Lil Ray, the Veggie Conquest Halloween party promises to be a frighteningly good time for vegans, vegetarians, omnivores, raw foodists, fruitarians, and whatever-other-tarians alike.
Guests are encouraged to strut their most creative, meatless Halloween attire and enter the costume contest. To enter the candy-making contest going on during the party, clever confectioners must make at least 200 pieces of delicious vegan candy. Both competitions are open to amateurs, professionals and everyone in between – so long as they leave the rotting flesh at home.
Speaking of rotting flesh — proof positive that the idiot masses will imitate even the most vile and disgusting celebrity trends, The New York Daily News has reported that Lady Gag Gag ahem Lady Gaga’s meat dress is the most searched-for Halloween costume on Yahoo.com. While some readers might take comfort in the thought that these meat clad drones will likely get their due in the form of E. coli poisoning, we’re betting others will ignore this dead-end trend completely in their haste to prepare for VC’s much-anticipated costume contest in just two weeks.
Tickets for Veggie Conquest Halloween are $25 in advance and $30 at the door — DCTV‘s door, that is. Proceeds for the event will be split between Veggie Conquest and Mercy for Animals. Guests must be 21 or over, and sans carcass, to attend. For more information, visit http://veggieconquest.com/halloween/.
