Living in the past: Halloween '13

Do you know those moments when you're kinda busy, and when you're not busy you're just lazy and want to relax so you waste your time on mindlessly surfing the internet?
Well, this sort of describes my November. Why am I telling you this? Because I still have to show you my Halloween post! Almost a month after date I show you my awesome Halloween weekend!

On the 31st of October I organised a Halloween party at my place, just like two years ago. The decision was made on the day itself so I hadn't got a lot preparation time. Luckily I had some experience from the previous time so I recycled a few things that weren't hard to make. I went to the supermarket to get my ingredients and went in a hurry to another supermarket cause they hadn't got all I wanted in the first one en started the preparations.

Looking for all sort of decorations true the house. Here are some of them. What you see are a lot candle holders, incense, dried roses, a pumpkin, and my personal favourite: Some garlic to keep the vampires away.

Boyfriend to the rescue! He helped me finish the snacks (sort of) on time.

Personal food favourite: eyeballs...
Made with lychees, berries on the inside, and a bit food colouring for the veins. Scary right?!

Snacks, check. Food (here radish mouses), check. Friends, check.

Slippery eyeballs, next to beer and mocktails.

Graveyards and candlelight, a perfect Halloween combo if you'd ask me!

And an over all atmosphere impression.

Something that we did plan in advance was a Halloween party on the day afterwards. Months before I started thinking about possible outfits (fashion blogger alert!). And after several considerations, two came out as best. A chic vampire, or a messy witch. Note that it was a Pimps and Ho's x Halloween party. I tried both outfits before, with the things I had in my dorm room.

Vampire - Planned with a chic hairdo, like a chignon, perfect make up and a bright red lipstick. For the jewellery are diamond earrings and a pearl necklace absolutely necessarily.

Witch - Messy hair, a bird claw necklace and some sloppy over knee socks were the ingredients to my witch transformation. +some dark eye make up which is kinda missing in those pics

And then the final result, slightly different from the try-outs, but still ok I think.
Me as a black witch, joined by a boyfriendHulk, a devil, a schoolgirl, and some witchy/vampirish creatures.

Afterwards it became sort of epic.

I hope you enjoyed my Halloween journey, even though you're probably rather getting in a X-mas vibe! While you're reading this I'll be probably studying for a big test coming up at the end of the week, so wish me luck! And good luck to you in all the stressy things you may be suffering from at the moment!
