This is my first time going to Camden Market. The first time I heard about this market is from one of my favorite authors when I was younger, Cathy Hopkins in her fiction novels Mates, Dates, and ........ Have you guys ever heard about those novels? The second time, I think, was from one of the Olsens' movies, Winning London where they had this scene in Cyberdog. From then on I had this mind that Camden is a place where young people dress up as crazy as they want without getting awkward stares from passers-by (like Halloween everyday, probably). And from what a friend of mine who had been to Camden said, Camden is like a city of its own.
But, when I came up there, it wasn't as surprising or thrilling... However, it was still a place worth the visit cos you may found something unique or cool, like a delicious bubble milk tea stand. Kidding. But the bubble milk tea was the best I've tried so far in London (still can't beat the bubble milk tea from Asia, don't worry).
So this is what I wore...
camden lock is like the "mall"...
this store has a really good concept of design. look at how many sewing machines displayed!
cute starbucks, huh? feels like in santorini...
zara tank top and blazer, forever 21 shorts, new look tights and shoes, lady dior
didn't try it cos it was sold out -.-
are these bottles of wine? NOOOOO... look the picture below
they are candles!
met two cute twin-babies...the father said they were sometimes identical. i don't know how that's possible... sometimes?
but they were REALLY cute! the left one giggled a lot and the right one grabbed my finger when i gave it to her awww :')
So actually, the price for clothes or accessories or any other thing is quite... it was okay. But if I were to choose between Camden or H&M and Forever 21, I'd still choose the latter. The clothes in Camden was not THAT good, not like handmade English outfits, just mass-produced clothes. However, there were quite a lot of Halloween costumes shop, so head there if you want to buy something for this 31st of October.
Right now the streets in Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square and some in the tube stations are varied with people who wear costumes already! Mostly they painted their face white with some blood. I saw a Katy Perry, the plumber Mario, a pumpkin, many nurses, many zombies... I wanted to dress as an iPod, or a pizza, or Dora the Explorer, but didn't spend any time to make the costumes so well, I don't know what I'm going to be next Monday. How about you guys? What are you going to dress up as?
