Halloween, Giveaway Winner + Reader Surprise!!

Hope you all had a fantastic Halloween! I know I did - spent the Friday photographing/reviewing the beachy indie band Best Coast, then jetted off to a friend's Halloween Party - all while in my costume. Saturday I had a party myself, and Sunday was low-key with lots of scary movies.

I was Meg Griffin, my bf was Ash from Evil Dead. It's probably the ugliest I've ever looked for Halloween, but definitely the funniest. Hearing people to tell me "Shut up Meg!" and the laughs from random strangers was hilarious and SO worth it.

Leela and Zapp from Futurama, last year (just looking back at those costumes, holy HELL was that a lot of hard work to make those!):

You've got some pretty amazing costumes :) I'm jealous, my Halloween was spent in the hospital :( My boyfriend got his throat crushed, it was terrible. He's ok, thankfully, but it was a night not filled with candy and costume fun.

I love your Selene costume, by the way, it's my favorite.

Your Meg costume is amazing. I burst out laughing when I saw it, it's so spot on. Unfortunately, I had to work on Halloween so I missed out big time. PS: when (if ever?) are you opening your online shop again? I miss it!

You're one of those lucky gals who seem to suit any hair colour but I've gotta say you look FAB as a redhead!!
Great costumes. I live in Australia so we don't get into Halloween (kids do sometimes, but not adults generally) so it's cool to see the blogs with all the North American costume parties!
