I absolutely adore Halloween. I love watching my favorite spooky classics on repeat, Hocus Pocus, Halloweentown, and The Craft. I love eating excessive amounts of candy and having an "excuse". And above all, I love dressing up. My friends and I take Halloween pretty seriously, and creatively. No prepackaged plastic-y costumes for us, no disrespectful cultural appropriation, or degrading-ly sexy outfits. I dressed up three nights this year, meaning three costumes. Here is a recap of photos from my camera, and my Instagram.
My favorite costume I wore was my Edie Sedgwick Costume. (If you saw this post you know how extensively I love her.) I wore a leotard from American Apparel, tights from Madewell, and fur coat from Patagonia. And of course no Edie is complete without her Andy, so, my friend Brian dressed up as Andy Warhol.
Ashleigh was my favorite singer, Lana Del Rey;
One night Honora was Marla Singer from Fight Club (above) and the Government Shutdown the other night (below).
I needed a last minute costume one night, so naturally opted for Cereal Killer. (mini cereal box tops + red nail polish + knife + LBD)
Dany was Frida Kahlo. Fitting, since not only is Dany Mexican, but she is also great at drawing.
And one night, my 6 closest friends and I dressed up as 80's work out girls.
And because I love it, here is a photo of my friends and I at a party, from one of those fun disposable cameras from Urban Outfitters;
I already know what I want to dress up as next year (Edie again, Melanie Daniels from The Birds, and Ophelia).
And I'd like to know, what were you all this year for Halloween?
