I wasn’t really sure what my plans for Halloween this year would be, but extremely last minute me and my friends decided to go to our college ball in DCU. Ive never been one to buy Halloween costumes, and most years I throw something together because you’re more than likely to just wear the costume once so whats the point? And I usually always make plans at the last minute so I never think to plan ahead. We decided on the day to go, so with no tan on in advance, I knew I was going to go as a zombie. After looking up costume ideas online, I decided to do a zombie Rosie Riveter! I went as a pin-up girl last year so I wanted to re-do it but better. With the help of some tutorials on Youtube, I was pretty happy with the end result!


Halloween is such a creative time of the year, and its one of the main reasons I love it! As stressful as finding a costume last minute can be, theres a certain beauty in creating a look so fast. Although every Halloween I get so nostalgic as Halloween isn’t as good as when you’re a kid. Its so much more exciting, and eating your sweets for days after! It was only about 5/6 years since I last went trick or treating, and the numbers of kids is decreasing fast! The streets were packed when I was young, and this Halloween we only had about 4 knocks on our door. Maybe its just me being sentimental. The only good thing about halloween being over, is that we can fully embrace the Christmas season. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am the biggest Christmas enthusiast! With only 52 days to go we better start cracking! ☃
