so this is my first christmas/winter in NYC. to be honest, I am a little upset it hasn't snowed at all. except that one time in october...regardless I expected to be ankle high in snow by now. but what do I know, I'm a california girl.
I've tried filling up my free time with some christmas activities but am failing miserable due to the extremities of submitting final papers, trying to get a decent amount of sleep and food into my body, all that good stuff that comes with school. I turned in one of my finals tonight and needed a break so here I am posting.
last weekend was an epic celebration of santas and birthdays. I attended the NYC SANTACON which I am so glad I did. there's no other time in the year where you can roam around the city in a santa costume. I also have to say that the subways looked hilarious - santas were everywhere.
definitely take note to prepare in advance. this outing was so last minute that I threw on an outfit just minutes before stepping out my door in full-fledged santa gear. I dug up this cape from American Apparel which really brought my whole modern day mrs. claus outfit together; added green tights, a santa hat and presto. I had my costume. oh and I wrapped myself around with some cheap tinsel decorations from CVS, which left an obvious trail around the bars we hopped at.. I was so impressed with everyone's costumes I wish I took more photos but it definitely gave me some ideas for next year!
did you go to santacon this year? tell me about it in the comments
