I'm almost two months late but, HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I remember going to trick-or-treat events when I was younger and I always used just one costume every year - a witch. I don't think I had a say on who I wanted to be then and all that mattered to me was the candies I'll be able to collect. But I do remember dressing-up as Barbie and joining this contest where I had to walk on a runway... I didn't win, though...... moving on. I think I only had did trick-or-treats thrice in my entire life, and that was when I was a kid. Growing up, I never got to experience it again with my friends (as a tween or a teenager.) I was either too lazy or... just lazy, really.
Last October 30th, I was finally able to dress-up on a Halloween afternoon and I celebrated it with my Kawaii Philippines family for their first Halloween party: The Kawaii Halloween Costume Party! And guess what I dressed up as?

#KawaiiPHHalloweenParty Costume Plan A: Unicorn Plan B: Christmas Ornament
TA-DAH! A Christmas ornament!
Now, let me explain. Initially, I was supposed to be a sparkly unicorn with a fabulous and equally sparkly unicorn horn, but things happened and I opted to dress-up as something else instead. Thus, a Christmas ornament - OR Hello Kitty Celebrating Her 50th Anniversary (- Anne Kate Pinero, 2015)
I'd have to admit that I wasn't prepared for the party and I just really wanted to wear this sparkly dress that has been buried inside my closet for the past 2 years. AND Halloween is the best time to wear it because no one's going to question you and your choice of wardrobe.
When I got to Staple & Perk, the place was packed! I was welcomed with a really warm and welcoming atmosphere and it felt so nice to see so much happy people from the Kawaii Philippines community dressed up in their spookiest-but-still-cute outfits. ♡ The Kawaii PH team also prepared fun games for everyone.
We had Trip to [Hell] (which was such a cute name, don't you think? Haha) and I joined but almost backed out when they said that we had to dance... Therefore I was dancing awkwardly, but was able to survive until we were only 5, I think? Or was that 4?
AND the Couple of the #KawaiiPHHalloweenParty goes to Naomi of naomilku & her boyfriend, Nikolai!! So cute, this couple. So cute. ♡♡♡
We also had charades, and I don't know what Naomi and I were talking about when this photo was taken but I just find this photo really cute ♡
The last game was making plastic balloons! It definitely brought everyone back to their childhood. I remember making my own when I was a kid but I was always such a noob at it (lol)
During the break, we also had Ulzzang Pistol / Zeon Gomez and his girlfriend, the Kawaii Philippines Ambassadress, Gia Canta perform! They're such a cute duo huhu my kokoro ♡
It has always been so fun to be in Kawaii PH events because you know that every person in the room shares the same interest with you. It was fun playing games and laughing with everyone even though we didn't even know each other personally - because that's what the Kawaii PH community is. It spreads positivity and it empowers us to express ourselves without having to worry about the judgment of others.
After the event, we took advantage of Staple and Perk's amazing lighting + white brick walls to take outfit shots! (YES, finally, a new outfit post.)
(Honestly, I'm not used to posing for outfit shots anymore huhuhu so awkward *hides*)
