Halloween 2015

Halloween is the one day a year where a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.

-Mean Girls

I didn't really follow the slut rule, but I will tell you that this is the first Halloween that I've been able to really celebrate in about 6 years due to always being on duty. And let me tell you that I was pretty excited. 

Day One was Friday, and because costumes were allowed at work, I felt that I should do something. I didn't want to go too extravagant, because I definitely didn't need students staring at me all day. Since it was a rainy day, I didn't really leave my office area.

I then decided to go with my favorite emoji. Don't let anyone tell you it's a receptionist emoji, because we all know it as sassy hair flip emoji. My new blonde hair made it fit really well, and of course I already had a pink shirt. I just printed out the emojis and I was her all day! It was a pretty popular costume with minimal effort. 

Part 2 of Halloween was planned a little farther ahead of time. With Halloween, group costumes are hard to pull off. Are you all going to be at the same place? Do you need to be? Do you have to have every character? Will people know who you are without your crew?

Well I don't mean to brag, but we totally pulled it off. With a large group we needed a solid group with many different characters. After throwing a few ideas around, we decided on Clue! Seemingly unoriginal, but we rocked it. Coordinating with 7 people could have been difficult, but everyone followed through. So I made myself a peacock feather fascinator, found some bougie gloves and a candlestick, and then rummaged my closet for the rest and here we are:

That scarf totally came in clutch on the last minute, I completely I forgot I had it and it really tied it all together. Best part? People could figure out who I was without me having to give hints or try to explain.

Check out my squad below as we tried to mimic the board game box. We had a pretty fun night out in the city and survived to brunch together the next day. 

Needless to say, Halloween is now one of my favorite holidays. And if you have the right squad, group costumes will be #flawless. It's going to be hard to top this one!
