“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”
-Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
For Halloween I through together a last minute costume to go as a female Mad Hatter. I bought the hat and tights but everything else was stuff I already had – making it a comfy and easy costume.
- Scarf – Thrifted
- Blazer & Shirt – My mom’s closet (size 12, yo)
- Dress – Target
- Hat & Tights – Party store
- Boots – Payless, similar from ModCloth
Almost everything was already on hand! By the time I took this picture my makeup had faded, but I had a very vibrant eye shadow look going on earlier. It’s probably the only time I’ll wear blue and red eyeshadows but it looked cool!
Overall Halloween was a great success for me. I didn’t buy any Halloween candy to give out to kiddos and I didn’t have any at any parties. I actually had no candy at all! Considering how much my tastebuds love sugar and how much I love Halloween candy, this was a major victory for me.
I didn’t really miss the candy since I was enjoying other delicious food and time with friends. Pretty proud of this since I’ve binged on Halloween candy on past holidays. Things have definitely changed.
So far I’m off to a great start for this holiday season. I’m planning to join a hiking group with my friend Candace (who is now blogging at My Life Unboxed!!) and have a few other active opportunities I plan to pursue. I honestly think it will be a great season for me this year. Hope you all are too!
