All Hallows' Eve

Not sure what you're thoughts are about Halloween but I think it can be anything from stressful to super fun. There are years I have the perfect costume planned and am really excited and other years (like last year) where I don't want to spend the time and money looking for a costume. This year I am super excited. My friends and I are going out clubbing for a dear friend's 30th b-day on Saturday night and I can't wait.

Last weekend the fiance and I went to Kensington Market to get inspired. Kensington seems to be the go-to place for Halloween costumes in Toronto. There are lots of vintage stores which basically turn into Halloween stores this time of year. Check out the display outside one of the shops.

I don't really like buying ready-made costumes and prefer to put together my own. This year I am going to be Cleopatra! I was inspired by a snake necklace and bracelet I have that are perfect for this costume. I was going to be Cleopatra last year but was too lazy to look for a dress. I found a one shoulder gold dress in Kensington which will work well for the costume. Bought the wig at Value Village several weeks ago and I'm all set.

Can't wait to show you all the final look. I did my own little quick makeup trial yesterday before washing my face. Playing dress up can be so much fun!!

I've realized that I'm the same way. Sometimes I hate Halloween and sometimes I love it. I think I usually could be excited but it depends who I'm hanging out with that year ;) I hope you have fun! I'm still trying to figure out what I'm doing ;)

That's going to be a gorgeous costume. I've realized that for myself I'm not really interested in spending any time or effort on Halloween as an adult. I suspect this will change once I have kids, but for now I'm so lazy about the whole thing.
