I don’t know about you NEAT geeks but Halloween is my favourite week of year. That’s right, I said week, because any holiday that encourages role play, binge eating candy and scaring children deserves a weeklong celebration. It’s the one time of the year that people can go out all week long in any outfit they want and no one will look at them and think what in Gods name is she/he wearing. Even if that outfit involves stuffed Raven Props and lurking around railroads at dusk.
If I am being honest everyday of the year is Halloween for me! Fashion gives me the chance to wear whatever and be whoever I want to be that day. Some days I’m a boho hippy or a cow girl and the next day I’m Nicki Minaj (my woman crush everyday). And occasionally I’m all three in one outfit but that usually involves a lot of booze.
But that’s just it, clothes give us that option. That’s why fashion is such a beautiful thing. It gives us the chance to express who we are or who we want to be. So if there is one thing that I can tell all of you NEAT geeks out there it’s that you can dress in whatever you want any day of the year, not just October 31st. Don’t be that girl who says “I could never pull that off.” Trust me you can! Now get out there and strut your costumes 365 day of the year.

Leslie loves pink, chocolate and any making utterly ridiculous faces that could scare the pants off the gnarlyest of con-men. Leslie can be found sniping kittens, puppies, bunnies – basically anything that has four legs and fur – from local animal shelters, her love for pets is out of control, which is what we love about her. When LB is not lurping around her local watering hole she is saving lives as a Registered Nurse in the City of Champions.
