Halloween Party Idea: Afterlife Aquatic

The ocean can be plenty scary...all those depths, leagues and mysterious creatures tickling your legs while swimming. This Halloween party idea is part Life Aquatic, part Sense and Sensibility and Seamonsters.

Wear: A pleated dress that can easily pass for seaweed paired with a chunky turquoise necklace. And spooky, creature-of-the-sea hair and make-up. Davey Jones for him, complete with captain's hat.

Eat: Seafood, lots and lots of seafood. Shrimp, ceviche and mussels.

Drink: Mulled wine for the "wine dark sea"

Decorate: Shadows of spooky fish on the windows and mirrors with contact paper. Fishing floats, starfish and other flotsam.

I love it! There is not a real tradition of Halloween here in Spain, but a I will for sure take your idea into account if I finally hold a party at my place.

What's the point if you're not really dressing up? Halloween is a chance to show your creativity, you have such artistic ideas on this blog this is your chance to let your mind go wild.
