Ghent is a great place to live because of the variety of people who live in the city. It's a great mix of university/college students and the livelong habitants of the city. It's a rather small city where schools, museums, shops and history come together. And let's not forget the many awesome festivals the city organises!

I love so many things about my space, mostly all my stuff! But my favorite thing is probably the large L shaped desk that I got for free from a previous job. I also got the tall bookcase, the smaller bookcases on the desk, and the drawers on each end of the desk for FREE.
Arida recreates the snow queen style of Elsa from Frozen.
Elsa the snow queen from Frozen is a strong and independent character with the power to conjure ice and snow on command. Although she prefers to distance herself to prevent conflict she can still hold her own in a fight and kick ass whilst wearing a dress and matching heels made of ice. When I first saw the poster for Frozen I knew straight away that I needed to cosplay Elsa. Everything from her color palate of ice blues, her simple yet elegant hairstyle and finally her ability to accept the part of herself she was hiding and let go of the past appealed to me. Elsa is the perfect character for all those who want to be a powerful and strong female character this Halloween.
