Halloween has always been one of my favorite days. I used to love getting ready, putting on layers upon layers because it was always freezing outside, getting a pillow case and setting foot on the funnest night ever! I went trick or treating all the way up until I left for Australia when I was 18. My best friend Danielle and I would absolutely love going out and getting candy. What honestly could be better than free candy? Needless to say..we would get some strange looks from people at the door. They probably wondered "how old are you girls?!" - Owell..its all in good fun. When it came to costumes, I was inspired by male characters. I have gone as a girl in a costume once, and that was a witch, and even then - I would like to pretend that it was a male witch. I just find boy characters so much more intriguing at Halloween then girls - especially since most girls I see are hardly wearing any clothing. Three of my all time favorite costumes have been Uncle Pennybags - also known as the infamous Mr Monopoly, Edward Scissor Hands and Barack Obama. Since Australia is lacking in the Halloween department and they dont celebrate it, I thought I would do a spooky-esque post today!
I hate graveyards. I think it all started with the movie "Now and Then". I have always loved the movie Now and Then, but when the graveyard scene comes on I have to shut it off! I cannot handle it..so today was a bit of a stretch, but luckily I went in the middle of the day, with my wonderful boyfriend as my shield. It was hard to not look a bit morbid and weird standing in the middle of a graveyard taking photographs, but I like the way they turned out. I thought it was a perfect time to introduce you to my new thrifted purple blouse, and bring back these studded boots that are one of my favorites that havent been on the blog for a while!
What are you being for halloween this year?! I want to hear! Have a great week lovelies. x
