Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, readers! Have you had a spooky weekend, or maybe you're planning something for tonight? For me, I never wholeheartedly embraced this festive day during my childhood, so now that I'm older, I'm trying to compensate for what I missed.

So I'm little too old for trick-or-treating, but that doesn't mean I don't like dressing up or the casual Halloween party. However, in my refusal to dress up as a zombie due to its commonality as a costume, my improvisations resulted in myself looking like - as my housemate, Josh (pictured above), described me - the lead singer of a Glam Rock band...


Ta da! Looking back on this photo the day after, I can safely say my look was probably scary for all the wrong reasons. Furthermore, everyone at the party was convinced I was homosexual - not the best first impression for a single heterosexual guy, but oh well.

However, what I did like about the look was the experimental hairdo, styled for me by my other housemate, Charnah (pictured below). This was the first time I've had my hair up in such a crazy fashion, and although it's not something I'd do everyday (too much hairspray and back-combing!), I wouldn't mind trying it again at some point in the distant future.


Nevertheless, the party we attended last night was a particularly fun evening. The house was decorated to near-perfection with an assortment of decorations, including pumpkins, cobwebs, spooky-themed food, and 4-hours worth of hand-made ghosts and bats hanging from the ceiling. These were made by host Tayla, who was dressed as Alice from Lewis Carroll's 'Alice in Wonderland'.


So to conclude, I wish you all a freaky yet wonderful Halloween this year. As for me, I can't wait until my next opportunity for fancy dress - I promise I'll be more prepared!
