Soon it is my absolute favorite time of the year. Of course i am talking about Halloween. I love the whole thing. The scary part, the candy part, the dressing out part. It is indeed a feast for me. Since Halloween is just around the corner, i was thinking about answering some simple questions about this day, and maybe help you out to start working out your fantasy to find the best Halloween costume.
So when is Halloween?
Luckily for us us in Sweden, we celebrate both Halloween and Alla helgon. Which mean we got two of these amazing scary day. All though, we like to party and dress out more for Halloween to celebrate, and for Alla Helgon it is more a day for us to honor dead family and friends.
But to answer the question. Halloween is ALWAYS 31st of October. Which means that this year it will be on a Tuesday. Luckily for all of us, most events is held during the weekend which give us all a chance to dress out and celebrate all together.
And than there is you sick bastards who can be out for a whole night partying and still going to work the next day. I am on a mission finding out the secret of yours….
And why do we celebrate Halloween?
Eeeh, stupid question… to dress out like sexy fairy’s and nurses. Noooo. Well thats what Halloween is for many people, and thats fine. Everyone should enjoy whatever they want to do. But historical, Halloween is a day to remember the dead. Family and friends, but it is also a day for remembering the saints (hallows) and martyrs. If you want to read a little more about it but dont have the patience to read too much. Well visit Wikipedia. Here is a link!
But here is probably the most common question of them all, and the most tricky to answer… because there is no right or wrong answer..
What should i be for Halloween?
Whatever you want! Well i know this question pops up normally because you have no idea what to dress out like and you have already used all your fantasy. So here is some tips
- To get inspiration i normally google a lot of stuff, finding something cool which takes me to another page or site, which take me to the next one and after a while, i found soo many cool pictures that i decide to mix em all together to the ultimate Halloween costume.
- Search for cheap costumes at pages like ebay, tradera or blocket. There you can always find a full outfit for a really cheap price. And by searching around there you will also get some inspiration before finally finding the costume of your dreams.
- Every time you see something cool that your immediately start thinking “oh wow, i would like to dress out like that”, write it down, it doesn’t matter if it is February or in the middle of the summer. You might want to still remember that cool outfit when the best feast of all year is around the corner.
- Is there anyone you always wanted to be for a day? DO you have any role models? Well, dress out like one of them!
And for you who feel like your economic does not allow you to put out money on stupid Halloween outfits. Well, go search for things at your home. You will be surprised which cool outfits you can come up with if you just focus on your fantasy and do some mix and match.
