  1. This is definitely an event to watch out for! I’m torn between the Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland and a Renaissance princess for Halloween this year. Hopefully, I can make up my mind before time runs out!

    That costume is cool! I admit I’m not much into fancy clothes mainly because I don’t think I can pull it off, so I usually settle for safe costumes, such as a pirate outfit, for Halloween ;)
