My local climbing gym hosts a Halloween party every year. It’s like any other night except people dress up and climb in their costumes. It’s different and cute and not scary, at all. The lights are bright, there is loud music and NO scary outfits. I generally hate (edit: strongly dislike) Halloween because of its creepy, chilling nature. I do not do scary. Never have, never will.

So, this funky party at the gym is right up my alley.  I don’t mind this chocked up sugar “holiday” when there are no creepy clowns, murderous babies, or zombies devouring human flesh. I can get right behind it in bright colors and happy music.

This may be the Hispanic part of me (I am half-Peruvian) and observe Día de Los Muertos. It was initially a celebration and remembrance of those who have left us. There is none of the black and gray and scary nonsense. Colors! Celebration! Happy thoughts!

With my Rheumatoid Arthritis, heavy clothing was not an option so I opted for some neon sportswear (UnderArmour did a great neon legging in neon orange, red and green. I only bought the green and to this day regret not buying all the colors), a white tank top and some fun neon nails.

This nail art was not meant to stay on past the night so I did a quick, arthritis-friendly watercolor. I applied dots of polish then thinned them out with a paintbrush and acetone until I got the splotchy effect I wanted.
