Somewhere Over the River…

Being Australian, I’ve never really celebrated Halloween.  My parents, among many other parents of a similar age, wrote it off as an unnecessary holiday and that was that.  Maybe I’ll never understand trick-or-treating, but I’ll tell you what, dressing up sounds like an excellent idea.  A day dedicated to getting your costume on!  Why not celebrate?  It sounds like fun and for the first time, I have a Halloween party to attend.  Good friends of the blog, Johnny Rock and The Limits, are hosting a Halloween party this year, on a motherfucking boat.

Halloween on a Boat!

So the next question is, of course, what to wear.  There has been heated discussion about whether Halloween costumes must have a ghoulish theme to them or not, although Neil is believes all costumes can be zombie-fied.  I have chosen a costume that is not ghoulish, but it is easy to add a little taste of the un-dead.  I’m now so excited about dressing up that I picked up the supplies needed to make my costume yesterday after work.

I could've chosen silver shoes too.


Is it easy to guess what my costume will be?
