Spooktacular Trick or Treat 2013 at SM City North EDSA
My Rating: ★★★★★
We had a spooktacular trick or treat 2013 at SM City North EDSA last October 31. I wasn’t able to prepare for it so I had to do a last-minute rummaging of my kids’ old clothes.
I arrived at the mall by 10 in the morning to withdraw money from the atm. There were already bunches of kids roaming around, all dressed up and excited to fill their Halloween treat bags with sweets. I walked to the toy store afterwards then grabbed a green pumpkin loot bag, which was already on sale that day. Why green? Because orange pumpkins are too mainstream.
I hurriedly head home to dress-up and fetch my kids. What I wore is a black knitted cardigan over a black mini dress with white and pink printed ribbons. The ribbons on the dress actually looked like bats from afar. I scored it from an ukay-ukay a couple of years ago for only PhP 150. I fell in love with its lacy sweetheart neckline. I also borrowed a bat headband from my cousin then paired my outfit with Melissa flats in hot pink.
I dressed my eldest, Zaiel, in a Spider-Man costume. He put on a spiderman-inspired hat instead of the head wrap then wore a spiderman mask. My baby Neo wore a tiger costume. His kuya used it in a pre-birthday photoshoot 3 years ago (check it out here — Baby Pictorial by Baby Boom Portraits). Both costumes were sent over by my generous titos and titas.
Zaiel bumped into a fellow superhero and Neo found a new feline friend.
Pet Express is the first store we entered to ask for goodies. They prepared customized goodie packs!
After almost an hour trick or treating, we took a quick break at Chatime. Going from store-to-store was exhausting! I’ve seen kids being turned down because some shops didn’t participate. We also passed by a few disappointed moms because most of the shops had run out of goodies. I hope they stock up more treats for the children next year.
My milk tea addict cousin joined us too. Thank you and thanks for these photos too.
How was your trick or treat experience this year?
