I had the good luck this year to make a quick trip to the US to see family just before Halloween, which is one of my favorite holidays. I haven't had a reason to put on a costume in years, so this year, when my sister decided we should do the Minnesota Monster Dash 5K, I was all in. My sister went as jazzy death, I as the dead girl from Goldfinger (inspired by this post, no less). Although I wouldn't do the 10 mile or half marathon in body paint, it was just fine for a 5K. Turns out, gold lamé spandex is a lot more sports friendly than one might think (those 80s glam rock metal bands knew something we didn't). Also turns out, I do not make a good blonde.
We capped off our highly sophisticated evening with a round of zombie paintball at the Trail of Terror Festival. Because one can never be overly-prepared for the apocalypse.
Happy Halloween everyone!
