Hey, everyone! My posting schedule has gone kind of awry since I arrived in Vienna, but today I’m so excited to write about my Halloween costume! Halloween is my favorite holiday, and this year I dressed up as Wednesday Addams. The shoot for this look took place in Prater, which is an amusement park just steps away from the dorm I’m living in! People in Vienna also celebrate Halloween; many people were dressed as vampires, zombies, and witches!
