Things go bump in the night.








Some people like Christmas, some people like Midsummer, and then there are the people like me who bloody love a good Halloween-themed knees up. Maybe it's a rebellion against not being allowed to trick or treat as a child, but the last few years' Octobers have been focussed around one of the last days of the year you can go out without looking like the michelin man. Seeing as this post has been a draft since 2013 (!!! explains the odd formatting), I thought maybe it was about time to give it the time of night and have a lookback over a few of my getups from the archives...


knife party's haunted house - davy jones' locker

Oh, to plan an outfit on a hangover, with no foresight. Grab your most-worn wardrobe classics (stripy top, blue skirt), draw on a few nautical-themed tattoos and shove on so much make up your face can't move. Haunted House was amazing too, jealous if you've got tickets for this year's.

going 'out out' - max from 2 broke girls

On first thoughts, this one's a bit weird, isn't it? When you realise just how many people have said "you well look like that one off Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist" this one's a bit of a no-brainer. And you really can buy anything from ebay.

#AsDarknessFalls - mermaid

Deep sea theme continuing, this year I opted for something inspired by Missguided's new-in section. Take a nude-coloured body (add seashells if you live near a beach/have time), velvet pencil skirt and 'oh my god these are so high I'd give anything to swim not walk home' lace-up heels for a simple costume with elements you can wear again. Because guess which girl still has a 2 broke girls waitress uniform screwed up at the bottom of her wardrobe...

I'd love to see what you guys are wearing for Halloween this weekend, so please pop a link to your instagram in the comments (or, even better, a link to a blog post!) as I've got 2 things to go to this weekend and 0 time to sort out outfits, so any inspiration will be much appreciated. Keep an eye on my instagram to see what I get up to, and have a look below at all the things I'm resisting* in the meantime.
