Park Sora Gets Me:: A Much Better Option For Halloween


source mullberri

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!
