Hey guys, AC here!
Guess what this Friday is going to be?! I mean, other than Friday, which is pretty awesome in itself (Pants off Friday, weekends, it’s generally just a good day) BUT TOTALLY NOT WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT.
I am, of course, talking about Halloween.
Now, it is true that we generally don’t celebrate Halloween here in Australia on the same scale as other places (lookin’ at you, USA). But I think the team here at Black Milk give it a darn good shot. In fact, I’d be bold enough to say it might be our favourite time of year… we get to dress up like lunatics and no one can say anything… What’s not to love?!
In the lead-up to the big day itself, I want to take a quick look at some of our (read: my) favourite Halloween-related moments of the past year.
#5 - THAT THING WITH THE DEM GUTS SWIMSUIT
Every so often, we bring a discontinued piece back. We don’t do it often (there’s so much rad NEW gear to make!) so it takes something preeeetty huge to make us do it. Like, say, reaching 1 million followers on Instagram. Or suddenly, inexplicably, receiving THOUSANDS OF PAGEVIEWS AND REQUESTS AND EMAILS ABOUT A PIECE WE RELEASED FOR HALLOWEEN LAST YEAR?!
Yeah. That happened. One little post set the whole thing off. Once we recovered from being baffled, we shifted gear from “what is going on?!” to “better re-release that…” Welcome back, Dem Guts swimsuit from Halloween 2013. You’re a time traveller now, congratulations.
#4 - SPOOKBOOK 2013
Our first collaboration with Lookbook.nu was incredible – you guys absolutely killed us with your costumes!

#3 - THE OFFICE HALLOWEEN PARTY
What did I tell you about Halloween being our fav time of year? The team goes all out and it is glorious.
#2 - IFL SCIENCE REPOSTING OUR HALLOWEEN 2013 GEAR?!
MORE Halloween 2013 gear getting love, this time from perhaps the coolest girl on the web – the lady who runs this amazing page. Do you have any idea how much we freaked out when we realised this was why our page was blowing up? The reaction was loud, and shrill, and very excited.
So yeah, our Facebook exploded. And yeah we sent out a million links to the Mechanical Bones catsuit. And YEAH we totally brought the discontinued Muscle and Bone catsuit back. More resurrected-from-the-dead Halloween gear! How appropriate.
#1 - YOU GUYS.
Do I even need to elaborate? No, but I will anyway.
You guys. YOU. GUYS. We say “It’d be cool if you showed us your Black Milk Halloween outfits” and you reply by giving us the most incredible, creative, intense hashtag ever (#bmhalloween – check it out). No one goes above and beyond like a Black Milk babe, and we love you for it.
You’re all incredible and I can’t wait to see what you come up with this year.
Peace, love, and Zombies.
