Dia de Los Muertos

This is a post-Halloween blog but I'll put it up anyway for keepsake.

I'm just glad I did it. To put that face paint on and enjoyed the celebration coz everyone came to the party.

Halloween Costumes

A few days to our Fright Night with PONG, I was still hesitant whether I'd put that Dia de Los Muertos makeup on. I've been looking for ideas on Pinterest for so many days. There were so much beautiful and extravagant makeup and costumes, it is so tempting to splurge.

We bought the props, masks, face paint, and yet I wasn't hundred percent sure I'm going to do it just because it was so inconvenient to clean up the makeup after. But I did it anyway in the end. This is but a rare occasion. We are not big on Halloween parties in our country as we have a different tradition to commemorate our dearly departed. 

Ate did the work for me even though I got her so pissed off with my nagging, she put on a smile and finished my look. Thank you ate, love you lots. 



It was yet another successful PONG event in the desert.

Although we were thrifting since it is going to be a one-time use, there are many nice gowns to choose from at the thrift shop. Borrowing was another option but we found it difficult due to size constraints. The blue gown cost 65 dirhams only. Not bad for the price but design-wise, it was not good enough for me. I was actually hoping she would choose the green one as it has a nicer cut but nope, my persuasion was in vain.
