Punk Star Halloween

Rock n’ Roll Forever

It is that time a year again when all the ghouls, goblins and other mischievous creatures come out to play for one fabulously wicked Halloween evening.

Having trouble figuring out what you are going to wear? Well, my latest article published in Palette Magazine, Get Inspired with these Halloween Costume Ideas, tackles the ever present costume protocol issue . . . “what happens when you can no longer pull (the sexy costume) off, or should not even be trying? There are still ways to wow the crowds without scaring them, not with too much skin exposure anyway.” – Justin Trabert for Palette

Halloween Classic

Little Trabert Vampire

Tedd and I will be attending a Halloween extravaganza themed – “Out of This World.” The obvious costume choice would be Aliens, but the Traberts are way too clever for that one. Truth be told, we actually waited until the last minute so needed something we can pull together at the last minute. The solution . . . Florida t-shirts, a pair of shorts with Mickey Mouse ears and gloves.  Because nothing says “Out of This World” like representing the most Magical and Weird place on earth – DISNEY WORLD in Florida!! (Pictures of this madness to follow on social media.)

Clink the link above to read my full article in Palette and I look forward to seeing all your creative Halloween concepts with the #artfulmatters posted on your social media.

Happy Haunting!!!!
