Happy Halloween

I did have a big Halloween post planned, but to be honest, this weekend has been a chill out and re-charge my batteries kinda weekend instead. Although I did get a bunch of blog photos taken. Which was nice!

So, I figured I could share some facts about me, with a Halloween twist. Obviously.

  1. I have never been trick or treating. It wasn’t really a thing growing up in the late 80s/early 90s and by the time it became a commercial holiday, I was a bit too old 🙁
  2. I’m not a fan of pumpkin which makes me sad as I’d love to buy one to carve but it seems like a waste of insides! I think that means I have to hand my blogger card back in as it means I don’t like PSLs.
  3. My favourite Halloween-related/scary films are The Crow and Rob Zombie’s re-make of Halloween.
  4. My most gruesome accident was when I was about 9. I was in my friend’s tent during the day and as I went to stand up to leave, the tent collapsed and I fell over. Right on to a garden spike. It pierced just under the lower lash line of my left eye and missed puncturing my eyeball by millimetres!
  5. Although I didn’t go out for Halloween this year, I did have a play with some scar wax and had a go at creating some werewolf scratches. I didn’t like the scar wax I used as it was transparent rather than skin colour and it was incredibly hard to get any out of the pot. Of course after I’d done it, it turns out J had an unopened pot from Halloween a few years ago. And it was skin-coloured. Typical. I also used congealed blood and my bruise wheel, but I wish I’d bought a pot of Ben Nye’s fresh scabs as well, as the congealed stuff had a tendency to drip.

  1. Don’t worry – I don’t like PSL’s either! And I have never been trick or treating before – my mum had this bugbear about it being an American holiday and wouldn’t let me dress up, trick or treat, or go to any parties as I got older. Nowadays, on Halloween, I wait at home for the kids, with a big bowl of sweets and decorations out the front. It’s a harmless bit of fun, I think! x

  2. Wow I can’t believe you’ve never been trick or treating! I think the name is the American version where I’m from we called it Guising and you would go round and get money and sweets-or take a Guy Fawkes doll and get “a penny for the Guy”!
    I don’t like PSLs either it seems gross to me *bleurgh* oh can buy carving pumpkins though that have very little insides though! Xx

    1. In the UK “penny for the Guy” is a different holiday. That’s for Bonfire Night (5th November) where we remember Guy Fawkes and his failed plot to blow up parliament.
      Oh, I’ll have to look out for carving pumpkins next year, thank you! Xx

  3. I never went trick or treating either and I don’t think many of my friends did – it didn’t seem to be very popular when I was growing up either x
