All the Frills: Halloween

I’m so bummed that Halloween is over. I seriously live for Halloween – I spent months planning my costume (I’ve actually already started thinking about next year's), binge watch scary movies in the weeks leading up to it, and have just about the most fun possible dressing up and hanging out with my friends….most of whom love Halloween as much as me and always put in tons of effort.

This year I went as Henry VIII’s ill-fated second wife, Anne Boleyn (after she met the French swordsman who took her head).

As far as costumes go, it was one of my more elaborate as I really wanted to look period in it. I think it came out really, really well and I’m glad I splurged a bit on a historical looking dress (that was actually, even with tailoring, less than $150) from an online retailer. I think it was a good investment that I can reuse for other costumes.

Did you all have a happy Halloween?

I find it fascinating how the world seems to be divided into people who live for Halloween and people who are indifferent to it. I think I was fourteen the last time I dressed up, aside from one costume party I got dragged to in my early 20s. Give me a bowl of mini chocolate bars and a screening of Hocus Pocus, and my Halloween is complete. There's no denying how fabulous your costume is, though.

So cool! I love the costume!!! I didn't dress up this year, as usual. I still have my costume waiting for me if I ever decide to do something on Halloween, haha

I love how elaborate your costume is, and you look perfectly frightening in it.
Those photos of central park are stunning, doing night photography in black and white well is a true challenge and these are just masterpieces.
