What We Wear Wednesday: Murder doll

People who know me would probably agree if I told you guys that I love to dress up and disguise myself. Luckily, I've done that more than enough when I was still a proud Chiro girl (okay, totally tried to look up the translation of Chiro: Christian youth movement. Let's not go there) and where I would seize every opportunity to play another character. However, the crème de la crème of days where you can totally go overboard with dressing up is of course Halloween. I've been looking forward to Halloween ever since, uhm EVER (or at least since summer ended) and I seriously pondered about my costume for this year.

On Sunday, I decorated our terrace with some Halloween ornaments I stocked a while ago, carved some pumpkins, made pumpkin soup (indeed, that is a first for me), started putting on make-up hours in advance and patiently waited for the little monsters and witches to arrive. Yes, in my town, trick-or-treating is popular. Mostly because the local Chiro organizes it, but still. It was a cold, freezing night and me and my friends were happy to warm the little fellas with some hot coco.

As for my costume, I was a super scary murder doll. Last year I already did something very alike, but the kids weren't scared at all and everybody thought I was so 'cute'. Therefore, this year, it was going to be harder, better, faster, stronger, SCARIER. So more drama in the make-up, blood everywhere and a pirate knife (which I will be using for my next dressing up gig this week). My mom was afraid I was going to be too scary, but somebody handing out candy to little children cannot be scary at all, right? Okay, that came out wrong.
