I’m a bit lame at Halloween costumes. Mainly I look around the house for random inspiration.
This year the Russian hat we picked up at a St Petersburg souvenir shop caught my eye. It’s collected dust on a shelf in our study for years. But with my new-found fascination with the self-styled republic of Transdniestria it formed my “costume” foundation of a Transdniestrian separatist.
The costume mostly consists of the hat and a red sweater because I associate communism with the color red. Now if I could get some Transdniestrian postage stamps to stick on some of my Russian roubles I’d have Transdniestrian currency to carry as a prop.
