Spice Ghouls


Halloween is one of the best holidays (behind my birthday and Thanksgiving, of course)! I've always loved dressing up and being a weirdo for a night. Some of my favorite costumes have been a cowgirl, Sandy from Grease, Miss Piggy,
and a princess...though I didn't really
need to dress up for that one.

How can you not love Halloween? Candy, costumes, parties, and dancing to MJ's 'Thriller' on repeat.. Sounds like a perfect night to me.

Unlike in America, where 'sexy cheerleader', 'foxy nurse', and 'hot Harry Potter' (is that even possible?) are the typical Halloween attire... London does Halloween like real Halloween. Halloween costumes are terrifying. Makeup is necessary - and the goal is not to look good but to be able to scare the pants off a little kid. Going out on Halloween night as a zombie was an awesome experience and I don't think I'll ever be able to go back to "sexy Halloween". Scary is sooo much better! 

Unfortunately, Sporty Spice got food poisoning..
so we are four, not five!
The girls and I began our costumes as the Spice Girls (cliche, I know) and then as the night progressed we transformed into the Spice Girls: Resurrected. It was a great game-time decision because we would have been the only people without a scary mask or scary makeup on at the bar! Carly (la artiste) was able to make us look as if we had been beaten up, killed and come back to life. Amazing talent she's got there!
So as a final mental image, I'll leave you with the thought of the four of us Zombies getting on the Tube fully decked out with scary, 'bleeding and bruised' faces while the rest of London made their daily commute home. To say we got a lot of weird looks (and a few compliments!) would be an understatement.

Scary Spice.. literally!
Moral of the story: You're never too old to dress up like a zombie. Maturity is overrated!

Cheers y'all, Lisa
