Informally known as Halfoween, May 1st marks the halfway mark from one Halloween to the next. While not universally recognized, Halfoween is a great excuse to get excited about Halloween, either by dressing in costume, handing out candy, or generally encouraging horror shenanigans.
To get you in the mood for tomorrowâ€™s Halfoween, today weâ€™re showcasing imagery from the Whitby Gothic Weekend, an annual four-day event in England celebrating lifeâ€™s darker, more mysterious side. Basically, the Whitby Gothic Weekend is a Halloween loverâ€™s wet dream, featuring such things as drinking, dancing, music, and shopping, all with an alternative, horror-centric spin.
Enough chit-chat, let’s get pumped for Halfoween:
Attending guests wear clothing from various genres, including Romanticism, Victoriana, Cybergoth, and Steampunk.
