Halloween in Sheffield, England.

I sort of experienced a Halloween night the other day. A festivity that happened every 31 October each year. 

Initially I actually have no plan that night (other than laying in my bed) lagipun aku rasa macam eh boleh ke sambut Halloween ni. But it turned out that my friend, Rubi, asked me if I wanted to do her Halloween make-up, which of course I am kinda excited to do it. Since the day I came to UK, I've already felt like its a waste if all along I didn't learn nor witness their culture. And by the way, I first talked to Rubi because I thought she's Malaysian. I guess I'm terrible in guessing people's identity, because she is actually from Peru haha, and I discovered that Perubian has a sawo matang skin like us as well. And thats basically how our friendship grew. And how I experienced a Halloween night.

We (as in me and my housemates) had some effort in following their culture too, that we were expecting kids to do some tricks or treats, and so, of course we prepared some candies with us. But amazingly and sadly, I met no kids at all!

And fyi, when I said I experienced a Halloween night, its just I went out to see the people and that's all haha. I felt like it was a Comic Fiesta event where everyone wear scary or ghostly costumes everywhere, and it was amazing because EVERYONE is cosplaying (including the folk at all shops).

Yes basically that is all how I felt Halloween is celebrated for = cosplay.

I sort of felt like an achievement too for going out that night because if its not halloween night, going out after 9pm at certain streets is sort of a no no for us girls here in the UK since there's danger of running into drunk people so urgh (esp on weekends).

Some random students we bumped across.

Yes, the event is in our very own Student Union.

I dont go in because I dont have the ticket? Sold out a month before October haha.

The result! Kinda!
