I ended up doing all that just last night with some of my cosplay buddies!
Strung up all the lanterns onto a single wooden stick! And yes, we were burning candles on the cement floor (but we were nice enough to clean up the mess before leaving)!
Esther and Minichaos, my 2 closest cosplay buddies, in fact Esther and I go way back, all the way to secondary school!
White shirt: Uniqlo
Denim Shorts: Cotton On
Black Stockings & Leopard print Scarf: This Fashion
Spectacle frames: Random shop in Far East Plaza
Bag: Louis Vuitton
Bought this awesome pair of frames on my last outing with Steph, I finally have a pair of large spectacle frames! I popped out the lenses for the evening, but I popped them right back in when I got home, just in case I need them next time...
And in case those of you are wondering what a mooncake was, it's basically a dough filled with sweet lotus paste and a salted egg yolk in the middle. There are alot of modern variations now, but this is the original version.
It was kindda weird and amusing when tourists started taking pictures of us, whilst we were playing with the lanterns but we just ignored them and carried on. But the most amusing part of the night has to be when our very first lantern caught on fire! The candle had dropped onto its side, thus setting the flammable paper alight, causing Esther to panic and swing it around in an attempt to put out the fire. Unfortunately, all the swinging only caused the flames to get bigger but we managed eventually managed to put it out by dumping it on the floor and stamping all over it.
Hahaha, to be kids again....
