I was struck with a brilliant idea for what to dress up as last night for Halloween. I don’t know why I’d never thought of it before. Ready?… I dressed as a maasikas (strawberry)! It wasn’t the most cleverly implemented costume, as it consisted of a red shirt, green pants, a green sunhat that my friend AJ wore last year for Halloween when he was a pumpkin, and some strawberry seeds cut from paper (they should’ve been smaller, but I didn’t have time to re-do them).I don’t have any pictures right now, but when I do, I’ll post them.
(EDIT: Here’s a pic of me in my costume!)
Halloween isn’t a big deal in Estonia. A few shops sell some costume pieces and jack’o’lantern knick-knacks, and I think it may be gaining popularity among children. But adults dressing up? That’s definitely not common. So it was fun to attend a little party last night of both Estonians and non-Estonians, with some people celebrating their first Halloween in their first Halloween costume– everyone looked great and seemed to have a great time (though the Halloween mix that included “Werewolf in London” and “Monster Mash” seemed to miff a few people 😀 ).
The reason I’m posting at 8 am before I rush off for the weekend is because I decided to attempt to participate in National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo), in which you attempt to post every day for a month. You know, because I’m soooo good at posting regularly. I’ll give it a shot. Wish me luck!
