The months seems to go by faster and faster; before one could get over the joyous mood of Diwali, the time has come to say hello to ‘Halloween’. Also known as All Saints’ Eve, it is the eve of the Western Christian feast. It is observed to remember the dead (saints, martyrs and all the faithful).
Halloween activities largely include trick-or-treating, attending Halloween costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns, telling scary stories and watching horror or gothic films. In many parts of the world, people attend church services and light candles on the graves of the dead. While apples, potato pancakes and soul cakes are popular dishes during a Halloween celebration, some Christians refrain from eating meat.
With 31st October right around the corner, the pressure to figure out what to wear has started to rise. Finding the perfect costume doesn’t always have to be stressful and expensive. You can make use of your creativity and whip up DIY fashion clothes of your choice and set new fashion trends. All you need to do is take a trip to your own closet.

Go As Your Favorite Dessert
Whether you are stressed, depressed or happy – dessert is one thing that is always by your side. Dress like your favorite sweet dish by getting a plain t-shirt printed with your dessert’s photo (or pin a picture of the dessert on the front). Pair it with a tutu skirt and sneakers, keep your hair unbolted, makeup minimalistic and voila! You are ready to flaunt the latest fashion clothes created and styled by you. If you want to get more creative, then pick up some cardboard from your store room and trace out the silhouette of your desired dessert dish. Wear a plain t-shirt and shorts and hang the silhouette around you.
