I love Halloween. In fact "I love" doesn't even sound strong enough to explain how much I love it! Some people think its strange since I do not like scary things, not scary movies, not the dark, nothing scary. But I love Halloween. I love dressing up. I love decorating. I love handing out candy. I love everything about it. In fact tonight I might even watch a scary(ish) movie.

So seeing as I love it, this weekend was busy! Friday night my man and I headed over to Granville Island for a Boat Cruise Masquerade! It was hosted by Cody and Tiffany Hind for their birthday. Halloween twins, so cute. It was a lot of fun and I got to wear one of my favourite dresses for it.

Yes, I matched my drink to my outfit!

Dress: Vintage
Mask: Dressew

Saturday night was costume night! I made a bunch of treats and goblin punch and some of our friend's came over for a pre going out get together. I had so much fun making the treats and decorating that I could wait to show everything off to our peeps.

Our ghoulish treats

Garbage bag ghosts!

I really show clean up in here...

One of the things I really miss from working in the film industry is the over the top make-up and effects I got to do on a daily basis. Hello, Halloween and a friend who needs to be a zombie for work.

Yeah I did that!

My man and I went as Baywatch! It was a lot of fun and I think the easiest costume I have ever done. A spray tan and some bronzer were all the make-up I needed. A couple props and bam, costume!

Even Rusty got in on the Halloween fun!

And finally today for work I wore some very sparkly eye make-up. At my job I wear an all black outfit; black pencil skirt and today, a black tank top.

Which was inspired by this picture in Kevyn Aucoin's make-up book: Face Forward. I have worn it before and I love the sparkles! So did my friends and customers.

Now I'm of to have a Mexican feast of fish tacos, homemade salsa and guacamole and watch a scary for me movie. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!

Hahaha Ilove this post! I'm not the biggest Halloween person but I love people who are really into it and make their costumes awesome. You looked beautiful, and I love the fact that you matched your drink to your look! What any good fashionista worth her salt would do :)

Thanks! I do really love Hallowen but any holiday is a reason to get dresses up (costume or fancy dress) and get together with friends and that is why I love holidays! Can't wait to start some Christmas celebrations.
