Halloween in London Is a Nightmare

Blood, face paint, and tears on the streets of England's capital.

Was it 2004? Or 2005, maybe? There was definitely a specific year where Halloween turned from a thing kids did to get free candy into a thing adults do to get drunk on spooky cocktails and go home with a guy dressed like Luigi.

Adult Halloween took place this weekend (kids' Halloween is still the 31st, FYI), and every street was full of crappy fake blood and wasted zombies. Photographer Alice Zoo went out on the town in London to shoot the costumes, the fallout, and what it looks like when you get your face paint all mixed in with your kebab's garlic sauce.
