We love costumes, laughing and candy (in moderation). Ergo, we love Halloween! Here is a quick interview with Merritt+Grace on this spooky holiday.

What's your favorite Halloween candy?
  • Allison: Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
  • Frances: Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (and this is why we get along so well)
Best childhood Halloween costume?
  • Allison: Pippi Long Stocking (look at that face!)
  • Frances: Snoopy
Favorite horror movie?
  • Allison: I love to hate scary movies. I "enjoyed" The Conjuring. And yes, I had to take breaks and watch parts with a blanket over my head.
  • Frances: I watched the Paranormal TRAILER and slept with my light on for two weeks.
Favorite adult Halloween costume?
  • Allison: As a huge fan of the Wizard of Oz, I couldn't resist a good, non-risque Dorothy costume in college. Not wanting to shell out cash on ruby red slippers, I opted to wear my pink ballet shoes. I also convinced my boyfriend to be the Tin Man. It was corny and memorable.
  • Frances: I am one of the legions of fans who can't resist a pet in a Halloween costume. I don't know if I have a favorite adult costume but my dog Winston ROCKED it every Halloween. It's hard to pick just one but I'd say his top three costumes were Shark Attack, Harry Potter and Elvis. I'm showing restraint by only sharing one photo.
Best Halloween recipe?
  • Allison: I always make a big pot of spicy pumpkin chili. It's comforting and thematic. And if you know me, you know I love themed events.
  • Frances: Spiced pumpkin cookies
