In the Netherlands we celebrate “Sint Maarten” (Saint Martin) and it has many similarities to Halloween. We don’t really celebrate Halloween, it’s more a commercial thing (buying decorations, themed parties) and not people going from door to door.
I always wanted to attend a Halloween party just for the “being a Zombie” part. But i never made the actual effort until we started playing the Pathfinder rpg boardgame (I’m playing an Alchemist btw). Combining these two together created the perfect opportunity and a legit reason to order dry ice, ha!
Weeks of preparation and days of work changed our apartment into a Halloween dungeon. I really enjoyed using my creativity in a different way. Recycling old books, paper and other materials into Halloween props.
