Trick or treat! Halloween and cosplay!

Next week!The biggest festival for cosplayers will come!Halloween is coming!
In China,we do not have chance to celebrate it except some Halloween comic-cons, but now, we are living in America, I am looking forward the wonderful Halloween party!

Straddling the line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity, life and death, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition. It is thought to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints and martyrs; the holiday, All Saints’ Day, incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows’ Eve and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a secular, community-based event characterized by child-friendly activities such as trick-or-treating. In a number of countries around the world, as the days grow shorter and the nights get colder, people continue to usher in the winter season with gatherings, costumes and sweet treats.(Halloween introduction from:

  1. There's some other customs revolving around Trick-or-treating that are a little more dark, but won't go into them here. Great post, and I can see how this holiday is the perfect one for you! Cosplayers definitely have the advantage in this holiday as it's right in your zone.
