Gab, Currently VI



It’s been a pretty anxiety-inducing week or so. I mostly just want to hide under the blankets all day errday, but A) The weather’s too warm for that, B) Adulting.


Because I work on Eastern Standard Time, I am usually working when Halloween falls on a weeknight. Halloween this year was on a Saturday! Which meant I could go out and watch some friends play a gig and dress up! YAY!

I was going back and forth about what to wear. It was originally supposed to be a Steampunk aviator, then it was Slytherin student, until I finally settled on the extraordinary Frida Kahlo.

“I hope the leaving is joyful; and I hope never to return.” — Frida Kahlo

I loved dressing up as Frida because it’s probably the most comfortable costume I’ve ever worn and everything I needed (with the exception of a couple of my mother’s bangles and fabric roses), I already owned.


I’m particularly proud of how I did my hair. Since my hair’s pretty short still, braiding a scarf into it gave it the volume I needed. Pity it didn’t show up well in photographs.




“As a girl, I did not know what I wanted to do, but I knew the kind of woman I wanted to be. I wanted to be my own person, independent and free. I knew that freedom could only be achieved if I took responsibility for myself and my actions, if I were true to truth, if I became my very best friend.” – Diane von Fürstenburg

I want her to be my ninang haha! 😀
