I’m Baaa-ack!

I’m not committing to anything right off the bat. But I am going to attempt to jump back in this year. Last year we had just bought a house and I wasn’t sure if I’d be dressing up at all, but this year… 

There aren’t a lot of conflicting events or art shows.

I rounded up all of 2013’s costumes. I don’t know if I had done that already, but I couldn’t find it. So, the 2013 and 2014 costumes are quick to get to in the sidebar. 

I have some ideas, but not many. Especially since my hair is still short. Do you have any suggestions for me?

What are you most looking forward to dressing up as this year? Maybe I can help.

My Favorite 4 Halloween Nail Pins

I perused Pinterest for Halloween nail designs earlier. I wanted to share my fave finds with you. Some of these pins link to articles for more ideas, too.
Personally, I’ve always gone for the eerily beautiful over the cutesy. That’s why I chose these specific designs.
As always, images are linked to source.

I want to try them all. Don’t you?

On the 4th of October I shared a post about the Different Kinds of Witches you can dress up as on Halloween. Today, I have put together a few example costumes from that list.

Twiggy

When I was a teenager people would call me Twiggy. I don’t think it was because I looked like her, though. I think it was just because I was very thin.

I chose Twiggy today, because I didn’t want to have to figure out what to do with my hair. I’m feeling lazy.

It’s a really easy costume if you have a mini skirt or short dresses. And everyone has eyeliner in their arsenal, right?
Just don’t forget to contour your cheekbones!

I did a quick line with eye shadow on the top and bottom. It couldn’t been cleaner, but it would’ve been less dramatic.

And here is Twiggy if you need a reference photograph.

I love the way she modeled. She used her limbs; took up a lot of space. If she was self-conscious about how skinny she was it didn’t show.

Different Kinds of Witches You Can Be

Witches have been around for centuries. Today’s witch is a far cry from the Celtic religions, but that’s where it stemmed from – starting with Polytheism origins way back in 3500 BC. Woman really did dance naked under the full moon. (And it’s quite a thrill.) But even if we don’t count the rich history of witches, there is plenty to pull from in modern-day pop culture. There are so many different kinds of witches.

Generic Witch; black hat, green skin, horrid nose.

Wiccan Goddess: naked, dancing outdoors around a fire.

Glenda the Good Witch; sweet and sparkly.

Bellatrix LeStrange; who is actually quite lovely if not completely insane.

Earthen Witch; light makeup, green dress, flowers and leaves in hair.

Pin-Up Witch; 50’s and 60’s pin-up hair, short skirt, tight top, seemed stockings, black pumps.

Burned At The Steak Witch; tattered clothing, ashen face, 1800’s dress.

Lily Munster or Morticia Addams; they both had a look all their own.

This is why I love witch costumes. Whenever someone simply says they’re going to be a witch on Halloween, I always have to ask, “What kind?”
