It’s the time of the year for the little ZOÉ LU bat. In the office, minds are divided. Confront your fears with the kids, party like crazy all night long or go for the "no thanks, I'll cozy up" option. Whether you're a Halloween maniac or a grouch, here are our tips for a cool evening.
You don't have to dress up like a bat, babe. Think of this evening as your own personal Met Gala moment. No one told you to channel Lady Gaga’s iconic beef carpaccio look with salami slices. Find another challenge for your inner diva. Apparently, the Bridgerton ladies are this year’s mega trend in the Halloween homeland. Adapt the look: Cover your dirndl with an XX-wide tulle skirt, wear Pippi Longstocking stockings, use pale powder for your face and backcomb your hair. There’s your spectacular costume!
You’re a grouch? Go Met gala anyway and pair your sweat pants with gold jewelry. We all know: it's 2021 and many a King of Rap has given up tuxedos.
If you have kids, go a little Cruella. "My sweet monsters, before the big Sugar Crush you will eat what Mommy worked so hard to scoop out: Cream of pumpkin soup!" Here's the non-exotic, classic version for little eaters who are still afraid to take it a step further: 600 gr. pumpkin, 2 leek stalks, 2 onions, 4 potatoes, 50 cl chicken broth, 50 cl milk salt, 20 grams of butter, salt & pepper, and a dollop of sour cream. Very easy: dice everything, sauté in the butter and cook with the milk-broth mix until done. Then let the blender howl through the pot.
You’re a grouch? Be as sweet as you always are. Pumpkin pie, anyone?
In company or home alone. Take advantage of the night before All Saints' Day to check your scare-o-meter. Are the movies of your childhood still no-gos? Is Hitchcock's Birds impossible or John Carpenter's Halloween (1978) still no cult favorite despite its kitschy patina? Here are a few tips so you don't get stressed: Scream, Silence of the Lambs, Rosemary's Baby, The Shining, Blair Witch Project ... Alien!
You’re a grouch? Go for another kind of drama. The Sound of Music with Julie Andrews. The other way of sniffling.
ZOÉ LU Halloween Style
Whether you're heading into Halloween night as Corona (we mean the bottle!), Mc Twip, the rabbit from Alice in Wonderland or a classic skeleton, here are two different suggestions: Our Flap Crazy Orange and the Gotham Nights or else the One for the Money purse as a clutch along with the cute Bet on Bat keychain and your favorite statement strap. If you dress up as a sexy nurse, be kind and take the Big Best Buddy with you into the wee hours of the morning: headache pills, disinfectant spray, bandages and the whole 1st aid collection. Maybe a classic oh là là Dracula will thank you for it.
You’re a grouch? There’s a great glam’up occasion between 5:30 and 7:30 pm. Glam Bam Disco, Funky Cardinal, Silly Saturday … whatever suits your style to pick up Chinese takeaway or head to your yoga class.
