I have always been enthralled by Halloween because it combines 2 of my favourite things: dressing up and candy. Let me elaborate.
I LOVE dressing up. I do not need an excuse, I will buy that new wig because who knows when next I’ll need to don some blue hair? So a holiday once a year dedicated to adorning yourself with a costume of some sort, where you get to embody the spirit of any character you want? YES PLEASE. (I feel like I could’ve made a very enthusiastic, but terrible drag queen).
As a kid, I believed that America was the coolest place on earth. This was largely due to the fact that we had M-Net (It was like semi stolen from our neighbour. We weren’t ridge. Everyone knows ridge kids had M-Net) & I’d watch a ridiculous amount of kids shows. And one thing always stood out. HALLOWEEN.
The Halloween episode was always wonderfully scary & exaggerated in any series. Hi Buffy, Charmed, Modern Family.
Free candy. I feel like if you had to get dressed up & knock on strangers’ doors here in Cape Town, you’d possibly be the subject of the front page of the critically acclaimed publication, The Voice. TOKOLOSHE KNOCKS ON WOMAN’S DOOR AND JEPS LEKKERS.
Halloween pardies. Er, EVERYONE knows that only the coolest people get invited. I mean in 2003, Regina George and Aaron Samuels started dating again. The 2 were seen canoodling at Chris Isen’s halloween party… they were inseparable ever since. Well, before Cady.
So when October came around and I had the house to myself, I had no other option. The stars had aligned & everything was in place. A yee old Hallow’s Eve pardy would be had!
These are but a few of the pics from that night. Oh, speszhial mention goes to Charvan Edward Moses who won the night, as he came dressed as me & was possibly extremely accurate with his “Nat Impression”. Possibly.
