Yesterday I saw a wizard drinking coffee. I also ate worms in dirt. There was some major cape action. Halloween can be pretty awesome.
Thinking of costume ideas is harder than it sounds, however. I was having a hard time coming up with a costume that was a) not lame, b) not clichéd, c) not male and d) not blonde. I wanted scary, but cute scary. So I googled, putting in vague phrases which turned up very little inspiration until those little gems “goth ballerina”… and up sprang the Givenchy haute couture Spring 2008 collection. Black, white, splashes of red, frothy skirts and ballet-inspired shoes….it was the perfect combo and inspiration!
