News__ what were you for halloween?
every year i get really excited for halloween, it truly is one of my favorite holidays and i love thinking up costumes even if they don't always deliver. this year my boyfriend anthony and i spent our halloween weekend in tofino with the canadian redbull crew. the cold water classic surf contest was going on so tofino was pretty busy and full of surfers. redbull hooked us up with a beautiful condo in the brand new cox bay beach resort and the usually nasty tofino weather played nice and gave us a beautiful weekend. unfortunately for the contest though, the beautiful weather came hand in hand with mediocre surf conditions. the boys did what they could though and local knowledge overcame when tofino native pete devries took home top prize. pete made it in into the contest as a wildcard selection and worked his way through the entire competition to eventually take the win.
anyways, back to halloween. i decided to go as sally from the nightmare before christmas and anthony went as max from where the wild things are. we spent most of halloween day sewing his costume, but in the end it came together and looked great. i tried really hard to get him to be my jack skellington but no dice. people didn't really know who i was without a jack, but i made due. we spent the night drinking at the waywest pub in tofino, only to be kicked out at midnight by the disgruntled bar staff. the night ended early, but it was fun and some people had really great costumes. i was pretty impressed with the turn out. check it out for yourself below.
