The nights get darker earlier, pumpkin carving is on top of the to-do list. October is the month to bring out the true creative side to yourself. Experiment with makeup to see what art you can come up with. My all time favourite Halloween look has got to be The Joker because it’s such a simple look yet so terrifying so that just sums up the festive season!
What do I get up to in the upcoming weeks to Halloween? Well, first of all, I give my bedroom some Halloween DIY loving. I decided this year I wanted to go with an olden day style look with see through cotton for the ghostly look. Then I went out to buy some pumpkin pom poms to then hang up at every corner of where the cotton was. I also thought it was a grand idea to maybe add my own unique touch to the final design layout, some Halloween themed tinsil.
So, after decorating my room I’m trying to think of some more creative ideas I could come up with to celebrate my favourite time of year. I thought maybe I could look up if there are any events I could go to and I came across one that was in my town where a couple have turned their own house into a haunted wonderland. They’ve been doing it for the last decade but I’ve never actually thought of attending the event, so maybe this year I will!
But, why is Halloween my favourite time of the year? Well, being a lover of Jack Skellington from the famous movie, ‘The Nightmare Before Xmas’. I loved being different and Jack taught me that I shouldn’t be afraid of what I love. If I like to be awake at night rather than day time, so be it! Why let anyone change what you adore?
Halloween is such a magical yet dark time of year. Imagine it being Halloween all year round, that would be my life! I think for this Halloween season I’m going to dress up as the Joker but add a wee bit of my own unique touch to spice it up.
What I also love about Halloween is when you go outside and you see the wee jack-o'-lanterns outside people’s front doors. Also, I love all the scary events the local town/city comes up with like; - Twisted Circus which is being held in Liverpool this year!
- Pumpkin carving,
- After hours tour of haunted castles, going underground to the dungeons to see if you can make contact with the ghosts who haunt the jails.
There are just some of the many events that I would like to attend! But for me it’s finding someone to actually come with you. Yes, I would go by myself but it’s also getting to the event as I don’t drive. So, I try to find local events being held but they are mostly for children like art & crafts days. I want something more gory so I think that haunted house I mentioned before in the article I will be visiting!
Let me know what you’re getting up to this Halloween!
