Now I don’t know about you but I’ve never been one to really celebrate Halloween. Maybe it’s because I’m in the UK and when I was growing up we weren’t so into Halloween as the Americans are (and we’re still not to be honest) so I never did any trick or treating and I very rarely went to any Halloween parties.
Obviously when I was at University I went to a few because when you’re a student you’ll take any excuse to dress up. My favourite Halloween outfit when I was at Uni was when a friend had a Halloween/birthday party and the theme was dead fictional characters. There was Cruella De Vil, the Phantom of the Opera and many more I can’t remember. I went as a Red Shirt from Star Trek because it was an easy outfit and they always end up dead.
This year I’m going out for a friend’s birthday to a club in Trafalgar Square and we’re all dressing up. Because I left it a bit last minute, I’m going in a steampunk outfit and then do some cuts and bruises on my face and arms so it looks like I’ve been in a fight – I shall be a steampunk warrior!
Another friend had a steampunk birthday a few years ago so I’ve got pretty much everything I need.
Are you doing anything for Halloween this year? Are you going to dress up?
