We kicked yet another carnival night away for this year. It was, as it always is, a great night, full of all kinds of surprises, the good and bad ones. Only the good will retain in our memory. Even thought I have the feeling that the whole masquerade thing here in Slovenia is slowly decreasing into oblivion, I'm glad to see that the nights on Saturday and Tuesday night are still full of all kinds of crazy, sexy, creepy masks ready to party, dressed as someone else. It was way much cooler when I was a kind, I remember, going from house to house with my friends shouting "Trick or Treat" and eating all that candies and doughnuts. That was one of the good stuff, who gets and eats more candies. It soon changed for money. When the people just didn't seem to care enough to buy a bag of candies for us kids and they rather replace it with money. It probably seemed more handy. Not for us kids it didn't. I know we soon stopped going from house to house. People got more and more annoyed by masks and just didn't open doors. That's why it's really sad to know that today's children will not experience how I experienced masquerade myself at their age. And what kind of a good time that was. And for that I hope, that some day Slovenians and all the Europeans will bring, or at leat try to bring this holiday back to life as it used to be.
As for me, I will always be ready to dress up as something fun and different and party with my friends and eat way to much doughnuts. I just can't say no, it's almost a must during the carnival, or at least I comfort myself it is. I like it so much that I actually do it twice a year. Our carnival now in February, and Halloween in October ofcourse.
I'm such a kid sometimes :)
And as for the outfit, this is one of my favourite ones. Comfortable skinny jeans, high top boots (love this pair) and comfortable cardigan with bright colours and a warm furry scarf around my neck. Cute and comfortabe. It says it all.
