The howling wind

Today as I woke up, I heard a familiar sound while walking through my living room- the sound of the wind howling outside my door. Fall weather has, hopefully, finally arrived! I immediately stepped outside and took in the fresh air. Ahhh, everything seems to be well!
Yesterday I made at trip to Spirit Halloween and sadly found out that all of the outfits I have previously mentioned I wanted to buy are sold online. I’m one who needs to try on the outfit before I purchase the apparel. *sigh* Well, I did try on one costume, this burlesque outfit. If all else fails! Tonight I am making my traditional trip to buy Halloween decor in bulk at midnight when it is officially October 1!

Skeleton dress

Last year I spotted this dress at a small Halloween store and somehow convinced myself not to purchase it. Now that October has arrived, I have the opportunity to ruthlessly search through stores until I come across this gorgeous, must-have outfit for me. I’m imaging it with black tights, heeled boots, and a long, thick, red jacket on top. Ahhhh!!!!

Fashion, fashion, fashion

Now, I am one to usually despise photos, especially candid shots, but when my friend asked me to help her out with her design project and wear her dress I said yes. The shoot was actually fun and relaxing. I didn’t think much when I was having the photos taken, just staring at the camera, not really moving my face. Well, here’s the shot she likes the best so far for her portfolio. Hopefully she’ll send me more soon!

Another morning, another costume search

Today is my day off!!! I am resisting the urge to fall back into slumber so I can enjoy my whole day, from coffee before 8 a.m. to whatever it is I want to do today. I need to go to Sephora and pick up my foundation and I’ll casually browse the mall, probably stop by Victoria’s Secret and maybe another store to pick up a new item of clothing or some accessories. I went onto my favorite site again (Spirit Halloween) and found these two costumes that I had chosen for last year, but never actually saw available at the store. I desperately want to try each of them on! Last night, I submitted an article to Yahoo for couples costumes. Hopefully it will be published this week and I can share the link!

Now, blue or pink?

Skeletons and zombies

After watching a poorly directed and shot movie about a Halloween party turned cannibalism celebration, I became inspired to go into my box of horror and decorate with what I had. I’m excited to go more Halloween stores to continue building my decor collection and I must search online for more ideas! Martha Stewart? Nah.

 

Pending costumes

I have yet to visit a Halloween store for reasons unknown since one of my favorite hobbies is trying on Halloween costumes, or any costumes for that matter. I tend to stray away from the classic outfits- barely there, ultra sexy outfits. Now, I’m not saying I’m not going for the sexy Halloween look, but I go for outfits that you don’t typically find at Halloween bashes. I have a few in my closet that I will post soon, and here are my favorite picks for this year, from what I saw after one page of Halloween searching on Spirit.

If I purchase the Black Widow outfit, I’m considering purchasing a red wig. I went through a wig stage before (for about three days) in the privacy of my own bedroom, and they all looked quite horrible and terribly unrealistic. But this will be Halloween. I never watched the movie Jonah Hex, but  this outfit calls to me. I most likely will not choose the Sucker Punch outfit, although I adore the movie as well as the soundtrack, but I’ll have fun trying it on. Oh, the choices and the money that will be spent!
