EDITORS’ PICKS

3 weeks ago | BY Huma Hazarika Sharma

We heart it, you cart it

 

“Double, double, toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble!” – Shakespeare wrote it centuries ago, but it still holds true for everything spooky that Halloween stands for. For when else do we get a legit reason to be whomever we want (even if just for the night) – from an evil voodoo doll to the Grady twins from ‘The Shining’. So, sit tight as we help you sort out everything you could need this Hallows eve.
A CRYPT-IC PLACE
Halloween parties are always (in)famously the coolest ones you’ll ever attend, and the scarier the venue, the better no? Nothing helps set the right mood like a bunch of creepy lights that look like they belong in Dracula’s castle – take your pick from rope-wrapped wall lights that would look perfect for any creepy barn scenes, or an ‘ol school chandelier that could just as well be the perfect dim setting for the dance floor.
2SPOOK-TACULAR ‘STUMES FOR HER
We’ve already done a roundup of all the cool things you could go as this Halloween, but if you’re still undecided, might we suggest you go as a sexy mime? All you’ll need is a face full of white face paint (or eyeshadow), blood red lips,OTT smokey eyes, a monochrome striped tee, pleather tights, galoshes and a beret.

SPOOK-TACULAR ‘STUMES FOR HIM
Remember Johnny Depp’s Raoul Duke in ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas‘? The film was brill, but absolutely bonkers, and we know nothing would be freakier than for you to get into character (with the craziness and all) and scare the living daylights out of pals when they least expect it. Be Raoul for the night in a Hawaiian shirt, shorts, a corduroy jacket, and his trademark bucket hat and sunglasses.

ALL NIGHTMARES LEAD TO TRANSYLVANIA!
Yes folks, the land of Vlad is where the legend of the man crueller than any history has ever known began in a tiny part of Central Romania very aptly called Transylvania. Named after Vlad III, the infamous ruler of Wallachia who was known for impaling his victims right in his courtyard (yikes!). So, if you’re more the adventurous sorts, a trip to Hunedoara Castle, among several other landmarks associated with the legend of the original vampire would be right up your alley.

11aTRICK OR TREAT
Halloween is practically incomplete without the customary ‘trick or treatin’, and while it’s not so much a trend here, you can always spook your guests with gut-wrenching versions of a Red Velvet Brain Cake that tastes as delish as it looks grose, Mummy Hot Dogs, a fruity Witches’ Brew or a Spiked ‘Smokey’ Punch.
5THE JUICE RECOMMENDS
HOMEGROWN X BACARDI #NIGHTOFTHEBAT promises to cray AF, and is this 27th at a secret warehouse somewhere in Delhi (your guess is as good as ours really). All you gotta do is RSVP here, and you might just turn out to be the lucky few who get put on the list.
