Posts Tagged ‘Halloween

Last October I completed the Halloween 31 Day Challenge, so this year I wanted to continue the trend. I saw this post on my tumblr dashboard and immediately thought that these questions would be a fun way to get into the October mood.

1. Do you believe in ghosts? Have you ever seen one? After two or three bogus ghost tours, I can confidently say I do not believe and never will.
2. Favorite candy? Ooh tough question…. Chocolate, Wonka products, gum
3. What did you dress up as when you were a kid? EVERYTHING From a powerpuff girl (Blossom) to a laundry basket, a bathtub, Elfaba, and Mew Ichigo.
4. Parties or Trick-or-Treating? I never get invited to parties uwu
5. Have you ever carved a pumpkin? Every year!
6. Worst thing you’ve ever gotten trick-or-treating? A woman on my block yelled at me because she thought I was much to old for Trick-or-treating (I was 11 at the time ‘________’) Then she reluctantly handed me a word search and a pencil. Um, what?
7. Best costume you’ve ever seen? I’m a cosplayer sooooo. But on Halloween, I saw a teen girl and her friend going as Spock and a Blue Man group guy.
8. Favorite ‘Halloween’ monster? Skeleton
9. Favorite thing you’ve dressed up as? Amu Hinamori
10. What are you dressing up as this year if you’re dressing up? What would you dress up as if you aren’t? I’m stuck between a skeleton girl, Karkat or Kankri, and some other stuff.
11. Do you like going to haunted houses? Only the alien-themed one at the zoo ;A;
12. Haunted woods? I’ve never tried that hmm. Maybe I’ll try that.
13. Ever worked in/hosted a haunted house? Nah

14. Do you decorate your home for Halloween? This year I cleared off my dresser top to make a whole Halloween scene. Usually we just put lights outside and some lawn decorations. My favorites are some skeleton lawn flamingos we bought. :33
15. Favorite decoration? Bloody ribbon/gauze. Also, putting my Monster High dolls on display.
16. Got a favorite spooky tune? “Joker” by Hatsune Miku
17. Any wardrobe malfunctions? At a Halloween party, a boy pulled the tail off my Ichigo costume and threw it over the backyard fence. The neighbors had to wake up and search their yard with a flashlight. So sorry!
18. Scariest Halloween moment? I’m a weenie so I try to avoid scary situations haha
19. Best Halloween? Hmm I don’t know. Every year was pretty good up until last year and the year I had to beg my friend to trick-or-treat with me and she gave me so much grief. (spoiler alert: she had loads of fun once she logged off fb on her phone)
20. Worst Halloween? I stopped trick-or-treating last year. At school I wore a tamer version of an old cosplay and was teased for the cancer symbols on it. (Hehehe 69 lollll!!!11!) That evening, I spent an hour putting on my Karkat grey makeup just to stand around in the driveway giving out candy for half an hour. The kids refused to walk all the way to our door for some reason, and they were all done gathering candy by 8:30…….. It was so boring and I had no friends to hang out with that night.


I got to work on my costume today. It looks pretty good considering I just started. I tore up a pair of tights and layered them, and tested out some grey face paint I bought at the party goods store. (I own like three different types of paint now. Oops!)

My old Matryoshka jacket needs a lot of work, but I have some design plans already sketched out. I cut my wig, and styled it to go with the hood.

I’m so excited! The Terezi to my Karkat showed me her WIP costume pictures, and her outfit is amazing.

Now all I can do is chip away at my to-do list, enjoying the new October weather! (Ahh~ I love the sudden drop from 80 to 65-70 degrees)

Hair growth progress- As of June 2015- I regularly trim my own bangs and they look amazing- choppy and short. The split ends have ruined lives and murdered small children. I haven't had a proper salon cut since July 2013. I might get a trim of 4ish inches by the end of the summer? I'm lazy.
