On the morning of Halloween, I woke up to get together my costume and make-up to wear during the school and work day. I did this last year for my Jareth costume. This year, people were approaching me off the streets asking me to take photos with them (I might be on instagram)! At the sight of me, some people were taken aback and others were beaming with smiles. I was late to my first class because of the make-up, and it was completely worth it for the sake of infusing a little Halloween spirit in the campus.
On Halloween evening, I decided to take my skeleton-self over to my infamous aunt's Victorian home. Her house is known for being the most elaborately decorated house on Halloween. They have different themes each year. This year it was "Dead Hat Society." It's a reference to the Red Hat Society, which is comprised of old women who get together and have tea parties. If you see where this is going, you'll know that my relatives set up a giant macabre tea party in their front lawn. There were skeletons climbing out of graves, with one on a bike in order to join the ladies of the Dead Hat Society at their skeleton tea party. My costume fit right in-- so much so, that some people thought I was a prop! You can imagine how terrified they were when they saw me moving.
They're coming out of their graves to join the party!
I hope everyone had a spooktacular Halloween this year. Let me know in the comments what you think, and tell me about what you did this year. Also, happy All Soul's Day/ Day of the Dead!
