High Ball Halloween- Couture Fashion Show

On Saturday, I attended my first ever High Ball Halloween. Its sort of like a Halloween festival where everyone gets super dressed up and goes all-out with their costumes. One of the main events of the night was the Costume Couture Fashion Show. Of course, this part was my favorite. It was a fashion show featuring 11 local designers. Each designer got to show 3 looks as well as a "couture" Halloween costume. Some of the designs were truly amazing; I never realized there was so much talent right here in Ohio.

I wish the pictures had turned out a little better, but it was dark and foggy. I took a ton of pictures, but a lot them weren't able to capture how awesome the designs really were. This show made me want to get more involved in fashion locally. Whenever I think of the fashion industry, I automatically think New York, but maybe there are more opportunities around here than I know. I definitely need to look into that...

On a completely unrelated note, I'm thinking about participating in another one of Kendi Everyday's 30 f0r 30 challenges. I feel like it's going to be much harder this time of year than it was over summer, but I think I need something that forces me to spice up my wardrobe a little bit. Are you planning on participating?

I agree her challenge will be much harder this time of year. I'm already stressing about it. I already emailed Kendi to tell her I'm in though.

I was at High Ball that night too! My first one as well. It was a strange night.
