For as long as I can remember, Halloween has been my absolute favorite holiday. Witches and spirits are my sugarplum fairies. I can still remember the first Halloween when my mom actually let me have a say in which costume I wanted to wear. I was 3 years old and insisted on being a witch. And a princess. And Scooby Doo. So in true CAP fashion (that’s Cuban American Princess, by the way) I pulled off 3 wardrobe changes that day, including 2 plastic masks and 1 truly gorgeous couture Cinderella gown courtesy of my grandmother, who remains, to this day, my personal couturier. Not much has changed since then. I still anticipate Halloween the way kids dream about Christmas, and I still dress up every single year, even if it sometimes means just passing out candy in really expensive garb that will never see anything past the moonlight on my balcony.
Plans for this year (aside from a mandatory viewing of the premier for Walking Dead per my husband’s obsession with zombies) are already set and I am beyond thrilled to be officially booked as of today for a witch-themed pinup shoot with none other than Miss Valentine and her team of experts at Terribly Girly. I plan to document the whole thing, so check back in October for a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to make a girl look wicked. To book your own shoot and for a list of all other Halloween themes, head over to their blog, Girly Talk. Happy haunting!
