Halloween Costumes and Book Fairs

So all week I’ve been putting things together for my Halloween Costume for next Saturday. Last year I went as a Mathlete, see photo below.

It was a huge success, but this year the theme is dead musicians, so I’m going as Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. That’s right the coolest member of TLC. I’m channeling the 90s Left Eye so I will be in bright colours, a huge hat, oversized clothes and doc martens with scrunchie socks. CAN’T WAIT!

Check out my Halloween Costume post over on Bookish Ardour.

Hopefully I’ll be looking something like this: (Left Eye on the right)

I will post photos after the event. This weekend I went to the Lifeline Book Fair in Gymea. I always head straight for the collectibles and rare finds section of the book fair and try to find as many classic copies of books I love. This year was no different and I found some pretty good books let me tell you. An awesome copy of Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, a classic copy in a little cover of Treasure Island, a classic well-worn copy of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, and some great gift’s for friends/family. I found an old school Kodak Photography Guide for my dad, a copy of Phantom of the Opera for my nan, a classic copy of Pride and Prejudice for my friend J-Dub and the beginnings of my Secret Santa gift. It was a great trip and I go every year, it’s always worth it. The money goes to a good charity and I get awesome cheap books/records. If you ever have a chance to go to one I highly recommend it.

I also went bed shopping today. I’m upgrading finally and can’t wait. But anyway, about to go out for dinner with an old friend, always a plus on a Sunday night when you’re in denial about going to school tomorrow. Hope you all had a great weekend and please leave a comment with your best Halloween costumes, or what you did this weekend!
