Here’s the thing about Halloween: I am simply too lazy to do much about it. Sure, I like going to parties and eating enough candy to make myself sick for days, but I’m not really one to decorate or host anything myself. And for a style blogger, well, I’m not much of a costume kinda girl.
For the past few years, I’ve been shopping my closet for Halloween costumes. Once I was an old timey aviatrix, with a felt cloche, red scarf, and leather boots, and last year I was a French man, pencil mustache and all. This year is no exception. I’ve had this dress for a long time and always thought it seemed a little on the funeral side, so my choice to be Wednesday Addams was a no-brainer. All I had to do was slip my favorite spiky-collared blouse underneath, pull on some knee socks, and braid two little pigtails, and presto! Easy peasy Halloween costume.
I thought about where to shoot for a long time. My first choice was to take my pictures in a graveyard, but something about that seemed disrespectful, so I decided instead to shoot in my own apartment building! It was a bit of a challenge for me since the lighting wasn’t great and there are a lot of tight spaces, but I love the overall feel of these pictures.
So what about youse–are you going all out for Halloween, or are you going a more relaxed route? And what are you going to be??
