Barney the dinosaur, human bananas, zombie cheerleaders and don’t you dare touch those antlers…
Halloween has become one of my favourite days of the year , a close rival to Christmas. Its the only day i can indulge in four hours of ‘getting ready’ to achieve a look that should happen at the end of a night. Ian Jones my fellow costume designer accompanied me on out travels.
Our Halloween adventure brought us to Circus Rebel rave in The Masque ,Liverpool. An enticing line up of Jamie Jones Visionquest feat: Seth Troxler, Yousef Damian Lazaru. meant i forked out a bank busting £22 for the privledge of entering the door. The Masque venue is spectacular but even more so with with hundreds of ghoulish characters bopping away in the theatre.
However after a good four hours of energetic dancing we didn’t realise the clocks had gone back and it was still quite early . We were all worn out, sweaty and ears throbbing. So we hot footed it to the after show party at the Magnet and happened to be the first ones in… and the only ones in fancy dress. In hindsight we had much more fun at the after party. There was a bit more room to move and a relaxed atmosphere compared to the mass of painted sweaty bodies in Circus.
What’s everyone wearing this Halloween? post some pics below!
