I do apologise for this entry being extremely late, it’s just that I have been really busy recently, I just haven’t had the time to update you on my super-duper crazy life. Although Halloween feels like so long ago now, was it 6 months ago or was it 6 days ago? who knows. I thought it would be cool to share my evenings itinerary with you guys and show you what I decided to go as to the fancy dress party. As well as this, for any of my fellow unicorn lovers, here is a little tutorial on how you can achieve this fab look.
Halloween is most definitely my favourite holiday of the whole year. I absolutely love the idea of dressing up and I get so excited to see other people’s dress up ideas. I actually planned my Halloween outfit way back in August just because I was that excited this year. For anyone who knows me well will know how OBSESSED I am with unicorns so I combined the two and that’s where I got my idea for this year. I understand Halloween is meant to be scary and unicorns are most probably the least scary thing but I had a great time and that’s all that matters.

The look I went for this year was not a full fancy-dress outfit, it was just simple and pretty. In my opinion, it was a little pricey once you added it all together and looking back now, it probably could have been achieved a lot cheaper. The way I see it is if the items purchased can be reused for many different occasions then you’re not losing out on much. I can reuse the dress for parties and the glitter will always come in handy for events and festivals in the future. The best thing about my costume was the fact it was so easy to achieve, it took no more than 2 hours to put all together.

You would not need all of the above in order to achieve this Unicorn styled look however, this is what I purchased. There are many cheaper and more expensive alternatives for many of the items I used above, you’ve just got to do a little research beforehand.
I ended up spending my evening at the Universities union with a dead bride, Chucky and Negan from The Walking Dead. Unfortunately, I did not win the £100 fancy dress prize but it’s the participation that counts, right? After this, my friends and I headed into Manchester City Centre and ended up partying the night away in the Gay Village. It was one of the best nights I’ve had in a long time and I already cannot wait for next year. If you have not been to the Gay Village before you have to try it out. It’s simply just a long strip of bars and clubs and they simply play the BEST music ever.
I’m not going to lie, I simply had an absolutely fantastic time being a Unicorn this year and I really hope you enjoyed the look I achieved. Let me know if you decide to use any of my tips and tricks to becoming a Unicorn yourself.
