Halloween @ Black Market

After filial responsibilities for a nation’s tradition to spend time and celebrate Todos los Santos at the cemetery, I dashed off to mark the holiday in a more Western way by 12:01.

Halloween party at Black Market.

Backtracking to 2 days ago, “Costumes K!” — a friend’s text message. I was, like, WHUT. How was I going to get that done? But yea, I had to be resourceful given that I had no time to plan a costume. I had to make do with this (no, ’twasn’t like I’d copped out or anything — I didn’t exactly have a set of awesome costume sitting in my wardrobe, haha)

Funny thing was I would’ve copped out if I had chosen the other route, which would’ve been simply wearing a horned headband so I reckon I had put myself out there (well, a wee bit) along with other folks at the party. Folks with way, WAY more awesome costumes on, I should add. Seriously? It was my first time to do the whole Halloween party thing and I’m VERY impressed with all the costumes I saw last night! They made my night, haha.

It wasn’t planned but I’m happy to realise that the ladies of Style Manila were together last night. Thanks for inviting me, skull sisters Hannah and Eena. And it was awesome to see you again, Sab! You looked gorgeous last night!

Ah, yes. Word of advice, if you’re at a party, in a club — DANCE more, take Selfies less. Haha /wink

How did you spend Todos los Santos / Halloween (whichever applies)?

xo,
Sasha <3


P.S. Much thanks for taking the photos, Hannah! Helps me to remember what I might have forgotten, hahaha.

  1. I just met up with friends and spent time with family. Halloween parties are fun! I remember going to a friend’s house party as an angel last year. Good times!!

  2. Constructive criticism: Not very interesting to read a “style blog” with crappy photos. :/I think this blog needs to invest on a good camera.

    • I’m always open to hear out feedback from my readers. Thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughts.

      How are the photos crappy? Is it just in this particular post or all? Is it the composition, the filters used or how the photos are processed, the subject, the sharpness, or something else entirely? Your suggestion for my blog to invest on a good camera is sound. Do you have a specific idea on which camera is good enough? Will it truly give me good photos regardless of who’s taking them? Do you think a DSLR is a good enough camera?

      I’d really love to hear your thoughts on these. Again, thanks for your feedback! :-)

  3. Party rockin till 6am! Haha Leave the awesome pix to the official photogs!. This is obviously a proof you were busy partying rather takin some selfies! Hahaha cheerz!

  4. Yep! It was so much fun!! :D

  5. Lynne honey, it’s obvious you’re new because a quick browse of the posts here will show you Sasha owns a dslr.

  6. Halloween Party Rock!!! So much fun!!!
