Sunday Best – Halloween Edition

Sunday Best - Halloween


My Spider & Web Hat I made just for Halloween

Australia doesn’t really celebrate Halloween. It was only a few years ago we got our first trick or treaters and had nothing to give them except musli bars…but it does seem to be growing rapidly. This year our girls went trick or treating in a big group with their friends and before hand we had our fortnightly park day. The girls asked me to get into halloween this year so I said I would make a hat. I also wore black. That’s about as exciting as it gets for me. (And the the guy handing out Mx’s who shouted “a hat isn’t a costume” I say “neither is a hoodie and shorts”)

    You are so talented! This is the best Halloween outfit ever. And you still look very chic and ladylike!

    I recently bought some tulle for a skirt but after trying out the layers and realising I needed about a hundred meteres of fabric I put it away again. Your skirt looks fabulous though.

    Magnificent!!! Delightfully witchy, and in the best possible way!
    Halloween isn’t big in NZ either. I put in down to Antipodean suspicion….!!! I suspect if we did it in the proper season it might take off. XXX
