Halloween has always been one of my favourite holidays because it’s the time of year you are exposed to people’s creativity, humour and artistic dedication to become anyone or anything they want to be.
As a kid, I loved Halloween mainly because it was the only time my parents allowed me to wear makeup. As an adult, I love it not only because I can dress up in a variety of characters, but because every year I always get amazed at how accurately and creatively people can execute a costume or character. In my experience going to social events, walking down the street or even waiting for an elevator during Halloween season, you can spontaneously connect with others who share the same interests or humour as you, or admire the darkness they embrace. It creates this strange temporary connection that brings people together, even if it’s just for one night.
With Halloween lurking around the corner, I thought I’d post a short and simple compilation of my favourite solo or couples’ Halloween costumes I’ve dressed up as, and maybe it will inspire you to whip up any last minute ideas. Most of these costumes were pretty budget-friendly, but the ones I had to spend a little more on (namely, a certain mermaid with flowey red hair) were definitely worth it!

Whatever or whomever you decide to be, let your inner [insert what you connect with the most] lead the way and enjoy being that other part of yourself 🙂
