|Halloween is Coming by liz west, CC by 2.0|
Halloween is coming soon again. Something I always look forward to. Alas, this year I will not be able to celebrate it due to a lot of reading and writing that needs to be done every week. So I thought it would be a nice idea to create a recap post on what I wrote about Halloween last year, in the hopes I can still inspire you a little bit.
It is a pity when something you wrote a year ago is no longer read... and when it is still so applicable around this time of the year... so, why not? Hm. A throwback Halloween post! I think I will start out with the costume ideas. I divided the different types of costumes into three different categories: typical costumes, historic figures and pop culture.

I usually don't put a lot of effort into my outfit. I just end up picking something in my closet and match it with an accessory to make it similar to whatever look/figure I am going for. I like paying more attention to the make up. Now, I know Halloween is when you can play around with special effects and create all kinds of scary and bloody wounds... but I tend to go for more girly looks. I like that I get to make a bold look, but I tend to prefer cute or sexy over scary. Here you can find some of the beauty looks that I have done in the past or have used as a source of inspiration!
Normally I throw parties for All Hallow's Eve, because the fun for me is not just in pretending to be someone or something else, but also in creating cute or scary finger food and turning your living room into a creepy environment with black light and spider webs. I've been meaning to do a Harry Potter-themed Halloween party for so long.. but that will have to be postponed for yet another year! Two things I make every year are Zombie Hot Dogs and Witches' Fingers. Click here to find out more!
Maybe I can vicariously celebrate Halloween through you! So, please do tell me what your plans for All Hallow's Eve are! Are you going out to party? Or staying in to watch scary movies? Do you like to dress up? What are you planning for this year? I would love to read your ideas. You might just inspire me for next year!
