Have you seen the new Halloween Special Issue? Be sure to run out a grab a copy! It’s chock-full of festive ideas for costumes, decorations, and recipes. If you’ve already studied it front to back, you’ll notice Martha’s fabulous “Motha” costume, which graces the cover.
That said, I wanted to take a moment to highlight the unsung heroes of her costume this year—the moths! For inspiration, we headed to The Evolution Store in SoHo, home to hundreds of species of preserved moths in a variety of colors, shapes, sizes, and age. There the entomology department helped me choose and safely transport several moths that matched the palette of the costume. They were so delicate and beautiful. Many thanks to Alex and the entomology department at Evolution!
And, just for fun, check out more of Martha's Halloween costumes from years passed.
