I chose the Ali G costume because it had long sleeves, and it was getting colder even with the sweater I was wearing. I was a bit horrified when I saw myself, because I look exactly like one of my brothers. We're not exactly close, so I was very disturbed by the resemblance.

After we got costumed, we were given our tickets to the premiere screening and escorted to the fan areas around the black carpet. There was a DJ playing music and hyping up the crowd. I was really there to see Mark Strong (oh, how I love him!!), and I had an opportunity to chat with him while he signed a poster for the people next to me. I asked him if he was going to be in Kingsman 2 and he said, "Yes," and added that they were going to begin shooting in May. When I asked he did glance at me then took a second look when he realized that I was female. Lol. He asked, "Who did that to you?" I responded that it was the studio who dressed us up, and he replied, "You mean you don't normally go out like that?" I laughed and said, "NO, I'm horrified." Mark's wife, Liza Marshall was laughing at this exchange. He wasn't doing pictures with the fans, which was a shame, but he was incredibly nice. I should have had a silver Sharpie to and had my ticket signed, oh well.

It was a really fun premiere with a fun and party atmosphere, and I have a Halloween costume for the future!!
