This year I must admit a major lack of inspiration. I had not seen any commitment to Halloween from my new city. There had been many rumors about how dedicated Bellingham is to the season but I was doubtful. Saturday October 29th 8:00 am while walking to get coffee I saw a group of about six young girls. This was normal. I pass these women every morning getting coffee. They are the apprentice crew from the downtown Tony and Guy. Now I guess this being a national brand they must keep up a certain image but Tony and Guy girls here look exactly like the ones in Texas. To help with this imagine black nails. furry boots, asymmetrical haircuts full of bold accent colors, black jeggings, and a lot of early morning makeup. Now on this Saturday my little tortured ladies had woken up extra early in order to add a bit of ump to their hair and eyeliner. They were all dressed as the hippest of hipster witches and very well done might I add. To aid in their disguise was an overcast breezy morning pushing around dead musical leaves and a swarm of black crows singing ominous notes of their presence. In that moment I found my holiday mojo. I decided on a costume idea, got invited to a dance party, and ate a mini snickers bar within the following hours. So without further delay here are some images from Halloween 2011.
|The Dear hunter and his dear|
|The reason I was covered in fake blood by the end of the evening and also my knight in shining amour.|
|occupy...get it? No one else did. Great costume though|
|And yes here lies my costume. A catholic school girl...|
|Otherwise known as fake pregnant and drinking wine all night.|
|Happy Halloween. Play safe it's all I'm saying|
