We are the weirdos, mister.

Along with 90% of the 18-30 population, last night I donned my spookiest attire and went out to celebrate everyone's favourite holiday, Halloween. There were plenty of halloqueens and trampires with costumes that delighted and disgusted the senses; medical outfits seemed to be popular this year, ranging from doctors (wearing Crocs, which is scary enough in itself) to nearly-naked patients dragging round a drip. There were some pretty impressive costumes too - check out the excellent appropriation of Maleficent, carefully applied Day of the Dead make-up, and lovingly DIYed Ghostbusters proton pack.

I wasn't dressed as Britney Spears, nor was I Cruella DeVille. I was Nancy from The Craft, but actually I just use Halloween as an excuse to dress how I would really like to dress all year if it were socially acceptable. Chris decided merely hours before we went out that he'd like to be Teen Wolf so I hastily made a t-shirt with an iron on logo and stuck some fake hair on him with latex glue. NB: follow the instruction to shave the area beforehand, otherwise it is very painful to remove!

So now that's over and done with, I think it's high time we started celebrating Christmas. In fact I am sat here dunking a Lindt reindeer in a cup of tea as I type...

Don't call Jordan the Hulk... He gets angry when you call him that.

  1. I bloody ruddy heart 'The Craft'. I'd obvs be typecast as 'the black one'- but she was pretty cool. Your ensemble needs to be outed on non-scary holidays... it's genuinely a good look!
    Whoever is dressed as Malificent looks frickin aamazing!!
    Glad the pimp-coat is getting out.


  2. I absolutely love the 'the craft', great interpretation!
