Five on Friday {October 31, 2014}

Happy Halloween! How is everyone celebrating? I attended a fun masquerade cocktail party last night, and I have four Halloween parties that I'm hoping to stop by tonight (I'm getting tired just thinking about it - good thing I'm off from work today to enjoy the Halloween fun!). 


Today's Five on Friday is a little different, because I'm focusing on 5 things I love about Halloween:

ONE | The costumes

As a huge fan of crafting and glitter, Halloween is a fantastic excuse for me to indulge both of those passions in one, big, over-the-top ensemble! My favorite costume of all time was when I dressed as a Pageant Girl (and not just any old pageant wannabe - an Ultimate Grand Supreme, naturally!). For once, my petite stature worked to my advantage and I got to use my Bedazzler and glue gun to my heart's content. I was the proud costume contest winner of a bottle of Whipped Cream Vodka, so this was definitely the best decision ever.

Unfortunately, I've been so preoccupied lately that I've definitely slacked off in the costume department! While this year's get-up will be sadly lacking in homemade crafting touches, I'm determined that it will still be glitzy and fun (check out our Instagram for today's costume updates!).


TWO | The parties

This grainy Instagram photo (apologies for the poor quality) was taken last year at a Halloween dance party headlined by an 80s cover band (I was dressed as a present, and joined by a crazy cat lady, an 80s girl, and Wonder Woman). This year, I'll be hitting up that same party and 3 others along the way - I love how there are always so many fun options on Halloween and how you can pretty much count on meeting some crazy characters everywhere you go! There's just something about being in a costume that seems to make people bolder.


THREE | The mystery 

I love seeing what people choose to dress up as, and then coming to my own conclusions about how near or far that persona is to their normal, every day life. (And if you're in the mood for another mystery, there's always the murder mystery variety).


FOUR | The candy

I mean, clearly this does not need any explanation...just look at those cute little pumpkins and monster eyes!


FIVE | That it's FRIDAY!
Halloween falling on a Friday this year means there is no fear of a curfew or an alarm clock, so live it up, step into someone else's shoes for the night, and have a blast! Oh, and also, enter our October breast cancer awareness giveaway before it ends tomorrow!
