It was quite the Halloween season! As it’s my favorite holiday, I made it a point to get into costume as often as possible.
I attended the annual Dances of Vice PhantasmaGOREY Halloween Ball at India House. This year I went for a Victorian look in black, with hints of emerald. I wanted to evoke the look of Gorey’s illustrations. A dear friend lent me her vintage Victorian cape to complete the look.
On Halloween Eve one of my favorite podcasters, Julie Klausner, performed at the Bell House in Brooklyn. One of my favorite talking points on her show is her tuxedo cat Jimmy Jazz. When deciding what I could go as, in relation to her phenomenal podcast, the choice was simple; her “tuxedoed gentlemen” ;) I highly recommend following Julie here: julieklausner
For the 31st, I attended Sleep No More’s Halloween event, “The Return of the Mummy.” I always love a reason to return to the McKittrick Hotel. For this themed event I opted for an Egyptian Princess. It was a marvelous excuse to wear my cartouche … and quite a bit of gold glitter!
Time to start planning next year’s attire!
