For my own personal reasons, I have never been a fan of Halloween. In my opinion, the entire concept of dressing up has turned into an excuse for girls to dress 3/4 naked. Which is fine, don’t get me wrong; naked is great, just don’t act like its your costume.
I do however, and only if I must; like to dress in a Halloween inspired looks using regular clothes.
I often do black and on black, but this year I must do something more. I have a few Halloween events I need to show face at, and black on-black; is just not going to work.
So as simple as that, Park Sora’s October shoot has saved me much-needed time. These simple looks can easily and inexpensively be created. And that is exactly what I am going to do!

5. paint alternating squares grey.
6. once having achieved the checkerboard pattern, allow the paint to completely dry.
7. begin distressing the table by beating it with the chains and sanding down all corner and edges that would normally become distressed overtime.
8. in order to not have a starch white table, apply a light stain over the entire table. lightest shade available will do fine.
