Guest Post by Frantzie: Pictures from my Halloween in Paris

The line for costumes at Clown de la Republique. 

My cab driver told me that the French don't celebrate Halloween. It's an American thing. I didn't feel homesick at all watching my friends on Facebook prepare for their costume parties.  I wouldn't have to spend any money on a unique costume or come up with something creative from my limited travel wardrobe. Then, my Parisian friends suggested that my travel mate and I come to their Halloween party. I agreed. Easy, I thought, there won't be too many people dressed in costumes. Instead of being lazy, I decided to try my luck for a costume store in the area. To my dismay, there was a line around the corner. Little did I know, it wasn't just the ex-pats who celebrated Halloween. Here are some pictures from my first Halloween in Paris.

Another amazing costume.

Location Costumes on Rue du Faubourg. The line was around the corner.

My failed attempt as a Zombie from the Walking Dead.

Best costumes of the evening.

After seeing costumes like this, I felt so ashamed for my Zombie!

Grainy photo, but still a good costume.
