Halloween and Wicked.

Halloween Night and Day.

For Halloween this year, me and my friends decided to go to West 5 once again, since we'd had such a good time there earlier this month for my birthday. Sophie Evans (runner-up from Over the Rainbow) was there and she blew everyone away with some cool tunes before the fancy dress competition, which my friend Emily joined and got into the top 3!!! We danced and partied till 3am and when we got home we sat drinking cups of warm tea while watching the ultimate Halloween film: Hocus Pocus! Literally had the best Halloween ever this year, and can't wait to do it all over again in 2016. I'm definitely going to plan my costume earlier though next year since I left it to the last two days to decide what I was going as and ended up going as possessed Barbie. I might go for something more bloody next year!
Earlier in the day we'd been to Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus and Chinatown because my flatmates cousin was in town. We had a fantastic trip to Hamley's Toy Store (in search of fake blood - which we eventually found in Chinatown) and got to see loads of street performers too along the way.

Wicked, the Musical! 

For Bonfire Night we all wanted to do something super special! As wonderful as fireworks are, we wanted to do something different since it's our first year at Uni. So we decided to look at prices for shows and "Wicked" was the obvious choice when we found stall tickets for just £16!!! They were a complete bargain for how spectacular the show was! Being such a big fan of the musical (from a very young age) I was nervous that it wouldn't live up to my expectations... but it blew me away! Everything about this show is perfect!!! From the cast to the costumes, I fell in love with Wicked all over again. We saw Emma Hatton as Elphaba and Savannah Stevenson as Glinda - along with Oliver Savile (Fiyero) and Liza Sadovy (Madame Morrible).
