Happy Halloween!



Here in Australia Halloween isn't really a big thing. We don't spend the month carving pumpkins and eating caramelised apples.  Halloween only exists on the 31st, and even then nobody really goes trick or treating.  But we did anyway. ;)

Oh the food we managed to get.  Some people simply didn't have any, and some gave us weird but yummy candies, like apricot balls.  One shirtless guy opened the door.  I think he was getting ready for a party or something because he had fake blood on his arm.  He didn't give us any candy though.  And then there was some rude old man, telling us our outfits weren't good enough.  He was stocked up on cherry-ripes but didn't even give nearly enough for all of us.

But I'm sure you don't want to hear about the Aussie experience with trick or treating.  I'm sure you'd much rather take a look at some of the costumes we wore instead! ;)

Let's start with my positively beautiful friend, June.  She was dressed as a leopard and I have no idea how she hasn't gotten herself a modelling contract yet.

 
You may recognise her from the blog Journeys' of My Beating Heart.
 
Note that most of my friends' faces have been wiped off for privacy reasons...
 
Anyway, here's one very pretty devil costume:
 
 
And here's a skeleton:
 



And a princess:

 
And a pirate:
 
 
And a thug:
 
 
And a cookie monster:
 
 
And a very cute little ballerina angel:
 





And I'm not even sure what he's meant to be.  I think he's like a death eater from Harry Potter or something...


Haha and last but not least, here's my lovely Halloween outfit:

 
Yeah, I don't even know what I'm supposed to be.  I just went for crazy person I guess.  Like someone out of a psychiatric ward in Pretty Little Liars.
 
Unfortunately my hair decided to flatten itself.  So here's a little close up of my makeup and hair before:
 
 
Oh, and I'm sure you wanted a makeup tutorial to look this beautiful.  Well, here it is: Basically just stuff up your face.  Channel your inner Miranda Sings ;)
 
And don't judge my dress by my face, okay?  It's actually a really nice dress, to my surprise...
 
 



So I have to say, my Halloween was pretty amazingly fun, and I'd like to thank AP for hosting the party!!

Happy Halloween!

Now here's a little group pic to end the post:


So what did you wear for Halloween?

Love,
M

  2. Wow it looks like you guys had loads of fun xD
    We don't celebrate halloween at all (pagan ritual etc) but I like seeing how other people celebrate it!

    1. Yeah. aha we did. I like seeing how other people celebrate too, especially in America where it's really big. The costumes are always the best part ;)

  3. Cool costumes!
    We don't celebrate Halloween in the Netherlands, not really. Kids are trick or treating a little, but it's not a big thing yet. Today I got to dress up anyway because I had to perform my solo in drama class and I did this thing in which I played a lunatic on a killing spree (long story...), so I got to run around college with a super soaker and make-up splattered across my face all day XD

    1. I think the Netherlands is kinda the same as Australia, because we don't really celebrate either. Haha but your killing spree sounds super fun!! I'd love to be the psychopath running around squirting randoms with water ;)

  4. Looks like you had a ton of fun! Love the costumes. ^-^
    Halloween is today for me, and I'll just be handing out candy. I'm not one who's trick-or-treat frenzied. =)

    1. Thanks Adaline! I don't know. In Australia most people only go trick or treating in their teen years, because no one actually celebrates as a kid. Have a happy Halloween!!

  6. Lovely post! Here in my country Halloween isn't a big thing either, only the little kids go trick or treating and the grown ups just go to bars/discos in disguise... It's kind of weird haha
    Have a nice Halloween :)

  14. Lovely costumes (tell your friend cookie monster friend I'd like her costume the best).

    I'd dressed up as a zombie (would you believe that no-one else was one?)

    1. Thanks Lucy!! I will definitely tell her ;) And dressing as a zombie must've been fun! All the awesome makeup!! That is pretty unbelievable that no one was one though.

  15. That sounds like halloween in the UK. Ha. People don't go trick or treating, or if they do the knocks are just ignored.

  28. You're right about Halloween not being a big thing haha. It's such an Australian thing - since no one here celebrates it. I went trick-o-treating one time and they gave us apples to eat.

    Your blog is really nice by the way. I'm kind of new to blogger so I'm trying to find my way around. Do you mind checking out my blog?
