Hedonism III in Runaway Bay was jamming on Friday night with what has become a tradition for many travelers from far and wide who converge on the dazzling resort each October 31st for Halloween in the sun.
“We come every year,” a couple from Europe exclaimed as they admired the extremely creative setting and full house of people decked in a wide array of fabulous costumes. There’s was simple but highly artistic body paints done by air brushing; which was quite popular amongst attendees.
Earlier that day guests were very resourceful in decorating their hotel rooms, using all types of ingenious designs and themes. This was the first competition of the day and the best decorated room won a three night stay at Hedonism III Runaway Bay.
Nichel Lindsay, director of entertainment at Hedonism III put the entire event together with his illustrious flair for making things thrilling and exciting. Staff performed an exceptional dance number to Rihanna’s “Disturbia” that was also choreographed by a staff member. The talent and presentation was just amazing.
Following the competition, Hedonism III’s night club was off the chain.
What a heated, rocking night it was as the Halloween extravaganza seemed to take on a life of its own with all manner of ‘beings’ parading their costumes and in turn their wild and sometimes zany imaginations. Judges were on hand to pick the best of the lot and as usual Hedonism III invited some of Jamaica’s prominent and critical eyes; they included: the General Manager of Breezes Resorts and Yardflex’ own Publisher. Categories included: Most Original, Best Couple and Most Scary costumes.
Costumes ranged from the socket and bolt that a couple devised - with the woman being the socket; a Palin and McCain duo who put on a dominatrix routine; Adam and Eve who wore very small amounts of ’leaves’; a robot couple with “Welcome To Hedonism III’ on their computer screens; Josephine and Napoleon; a pimp with his ‘hoe’ and the couple who won in the Most Scary category – the exorcist priest and his partner the possessed woman.
Winners from each category won the highly coveted prize of a five night stay at Hedonism III with second and third runners up receiving three night stays each.
