Hellooo lovelies! So, I have a dillema – I’ve been invited to a halloween party, but halloween isn’t really a thing in South Africa – we don’t really celebrate it, me the least as I have my own views on it, but now that it’s a dress up party and it falls on the traditional date of the US halloween, well ja, I have no idea what to do or what to wear.
So, I snooped around and found some pretty freaking cute halloween costumes to try out. While I would love to do a couple’s look, ie the girl and boy from Moonrise Kingdom, my individualist husband wants to do his own thing. But I haven’t planned anything yet. So here are some last minute ideas I think I might try – it remains to be seen
If you are into cartoons and have a beloved character – my husband likes to call me Gretchen from Recess, especially if I wear big glasses – then you should dress up as your favourite one. I think Minnie Mouse is pretty cute, while Darryl nailed the Velma look from Scooby Doo.
But, if you are a little more skilled with the make-up brush and would try a more intense, ‘difficult’ look, these sugar skulls are the look to try. I love the story behind sugar skulls, even though they creep me out a little bit. // Left // Right
