Boo! Happy Halloween! In keeping with tradition, I put together a costume from the contents of my closet. You may remember this one from last year– I’m Frida Kahlo. She’s a favorite of mine, and I’ve always found her work deeply thought-provoking.
In addition to my Frida outfit, I also took a short walking tour through the neighborhood. We have a lot of excellent decorations this year. Everyone went all-out!
I made the flower crown last year. The flowers aren’t quite as fluffy, but I loved being able to use it again. I may even wear some of the flowers when it’s not Halloween.
This is my modern Frida look and what I wore on the street. It was cool today, so I needed the coat. People stared at me all day.
I tried to braid my hair, but it’s much shorter than this time last year and I couldn’t get a braid long enough to wrap over the top of my head. I alternated between hair down and hair in a bun, depending on if I was feeling cold.

The neighborhood took Halloween very seriously this year. Just how I like it. Halloween tends to be less-pressure than other holidays, so it’s always been one of my favorite times of the year. It also means Thanksgiving is soon, and I love Thanksgiving.
Have a safe and happy Halloweekend! I hope you get all the treats you want!
