Happy Halloween

Halloween I Morti ShootHalloween is not only about putting on a costume, but it’s about finding the imagination and costume within ourselves.

Happy Halloween!

I absolutely adore Halloween — almost as much as I love Christmas. I love dressing up, opening a bottle of wine, and sitting on my front stoop giving out candy — Halloween in the city is the best! We always get a lot of trick or treaters in our neighborhood so hopefully they won’t leave me with any candy to eat myself.

On the agenda tonight?

– Watching Hocus Pocus. Like the true 90’s child I am. It’s extra eerie now that I’ve realized I’m the same age as the young actress in the film…

– Making THIS baked pumpkin fondue

– Staying away from the Charleston Chews at all costs (my Halloween candy weakness)

– Dressing up the pugs in their Halloween bat wings

– Carving pumpkins and roasting the pumpkin seeds

– Making homemade apple cider in the crock pot

What spooky things are you up to tonight?

I shot the eerie photos for this post as a promo for Chicago’s first Italian Day of the Dead party, I Morti (I also later shot a more formal campaign for the party too — you can see the shots on Italian Expo’s Instagram page).

This Saturday, November 3rd, will be a Halloween party unlike any other, celebrating the rich traditions in Italy surrounding the Day of the Dead. I brought my Mom to their Mother’s Day party in May and we ended up having an amazing time. So I can’t wait to attend their first ever Halloween party… ahem, I mean Italian Day of the Dead party.

$40 buys you endless food, wine, live entertainment, and a few authentic, Italian touches. Black attire requested!
