"CRAZY SEXY GHOUL" FILLS THE WATERFRONT | 1. Bryan Simpson, second from left, talked with Slopes of Diamond Head Hui members Paul Lum, left, David Hayakawa, Lance Kaneshiro and Greg Punch shortly before the doors opened for "Crazy Sexy Ghoul," the Hui's annual pre-Halloween party extravaganza, Oct. 19 at The Waterfront at Aloha Tower. Lum accessorized his costume with red contact lenses. Punch was in character as Russian limo driver Pikup Andropov (say it out loud). See more photos at HonoluluPulse.com.
2. Bobby "Bobby G" Gruenewald socialized with Rachel Valenzuela, left, Amber Cabuyadao and Bonnie Brookfield as they waited in one of the bar lines. With six bars set up around the perimeter and a seventh in the VIP section, no one had to wait very long for service.
3. Pascal Amar, right, enjoyed the evening with the woman he described as "the love of my life," Tiffany Stanton. Amar said he's from the Bay Area and wasn't celebrating the Detroit Tigers' sweep of the Yankees for the American League championship.
4. KCCN-FM 100 staffer Lil Guy took time off from promoting the radio station to make the scene as a shackled prison inmate in the custody of Lorraine Revilla. More than 3,400 people attended the five-hour event, with 100 percent of ticket revenue going to Make-A-Wish Hawaii.
TSEU HONORED BY PARADISE CUP | 5. Paradise Cup Director Greg Lefcourt, left, conferred with Tommy Kono, Dr. Lawrence K.W.
