The Witching Hour

Hello you pretty ghouls, and Happy Halloween night to each and everyone of you! The border between the living and the spirit world is at its thinnest tonight, so celebration is in order. Mine has been mild so far, just a glass of red while sinking into my sister's couch in Helsinki.




I must confess that I'm just starting to feel like celebrating All Hallow's Eve. I love this holiday of treats and various tricks so very much, but this year I haven't been as much in the mood as I usually am. I'm not throwing a crazy party or building a costume and draining ounces of love in the creation process, so maybe skipping the usual preparations has led me into this state. 

This year is different because I'll be in Berlin for the next few days. I'll be back some time next week, hopefully with some stories and photos! We don't have any tight schedules or plans but there's some places we both want to visit. Thank you for all the tips you gave, they were very helpful and I really appreciate the effort!



Here's bits of today's witchy outfit. Could be a Halloween costume of sorts, the hat always feels overly dramatic. The last supper of heels and trinkets, as by now I've switched to my travel mode of practical simplicity and minimal packing. I'll be on the road for three weeks, we'll see what kind of adventures they hold!

    1. Thank you! This hat is great, although I wish I could find a similar one that doesn't lop at all. :)

  4. Itsellä on tapana järjestää Halloweenpippalot joka vuosi. Tänä vuonna tuntui tosin ettei energia riitä ihan kaikkeen joten kutsuin vain ainoastaan muutaman ihmisen. Tarkoituksena on naureskelle huonoille kauhuelokuville :)

  7. Three weeks? I thought you'd go only for a couple of days to Germany!
    At this moment I am preparing a Halloween party I organize tomorrow. Just sew a part of my bf's costume (mine is all ready of course!) and, as you put it so nicely, "draining ounces of love in the creation process" of organizing all of it, decorating my home and thinking about even the smallest details!
    Have lots of fun on your romantic vacation!

    1. I was in Germany only for a few days, but I'll be on the road three weeks all together. :) So I won't return to my home base until the last week of the month!

      I hope you had a great Halloween party! ^^

  11. What a lovely outfit, as always <3

    I saw Chelsea Wolfe last night, the same tour you will attend. It was amazing and you will sure have a great time. I hope you had a nice Halloween and I wish you the best in Berlin!

    Not to sound whiney, but I found a Dutch clothing company on Facebook using one of your pictures...

    1. Thank you Rianne! <3 Chelsea was mesmerizing, her live sound was just incredible. But sadly I missed the first song or two, I was sooo tired from all the travelling and missed my first tram and had to take another one. Boo! But I'm happy I could enjoy the rest of the gig, it was wonderful.

      And thanks for the link!
