The Countdown to Halloween: Bonus of the day-Monster Movie Madness Marathon pictures

All of these photos either belong to Denise or Shump. Again, the camera that I was going to use stopped working on me at the last moment. It sucked.
These were taken during the marathon I hosted on the 18th. ^w^

lols Ian looks pissed.
Also, holy smokes. My skin looks clear without makeup! ^w^

It's a Shump. ^w^

Denise went all out with her Gryffindor student costume. It was pretty awesome. Notice the Quaffle on the ground?

I'm not sure what Ian was smiling at, but this photo makes me smile.

Shump picked up the best possible root beer for the marathon. All hail Henry Weinhard's!

Denise shows off the cupcakes of DOOM. >:3

These cupcakes of DOOM were Denise's pick. We pass this cupcake shop on Fairview all the time. Just simply amazing. I had a Caramel Apple and Tiger's Blood one.

Katrina crossplaying as the 11th Doctor... if the 11th Doctor were a ginger.

Hi again! ^w^

A super cute picture of Denise. ^w^

The Countdown to Halloween: Happy Halloween/Samhain!

Alas, we have made it to nearly the end of this Countdown. Happy Halloween/Samhain everyone! ^w^
I seriously can't thank everyone enough for following me through this year, new or old.
What a ride. ^w^


News: I'm ending everything tomorrow, when Halloween pictures will be posted. Spooky Season is going to be cut short for me this year with the baby on the way. I promised Ian that November would be our heavier prepping month. As my past followers know, I usually take Spooky Season up until my wedding anniversary date, which happens to be November 15th. Why is that? Some stations still have awesome spooky stuff happening on them, like older Treehouse of Horror episodes and horror movie marathons. Celebrating the Day of the Dead is also big in my book.

Rest assured, with this break I shall come back refreshed and ready for Creepmas 2013! ^w^


My 2013 Spooky Halloween story: Gypsy Witch Fortunetelling Chills

I didn't expect to read the cards, but I did.
Sarah (polite about things) and Kira (heavily persistent) were wanting me to read their fortunes after they saw my deck lying around in my bedroom. As with my other loved ones, I happily obliged. I hadn't read the cards in awhile, so what the hell.
After Ian and my Mother-in-Law left for work, I cleared off a portion of the table to do their readings.
I started off with Sarah's reading.
I was blown away by the sheer positive vibes radiating from the cards. I had never had anyone have such a deep and happy reading at such a young age. Her reading dealt with succeeding in school and in life.
Next was Kira's reading. This reading ended on a positive note too...but it was one of the darkest readings I have ever done. Readings I usually do with GWFTC are either positive or whimsical, so it was a rather sudden wake up call.
Reading these cards one by one brought chills to my spine. I saw death of a loved one, whom I thought might end up to be her husband, inheritances, and travel. The last three cards were some of the only cheerful parts of that reading. It seems that she has good people looking out for her.
I have never had a reading where I wanted to give someone a hug so much.


Stay tuned for more Countdown goodness coming up later today! ^w^

The Countdown to Halloween: Another wicked sequel announcement

I couldn't believe it if I hadn't read about it.

There's going to be a Trick 'r Treat 2!!! ^w^

I agree with one of the commentators about the fact that this is Legendary trying to make up for what they did awhile back.

For more info, read this article.

The Countdown to Halloween: SNL gold

When I watched this on its original air date, I couldn't stop laughing.
I think SNL should make more horror based skits.

The Countdown to Halloween: Studio Ghibli witch brought to life

(Another family friendly movie worth mentioning during this Countdown!)

Hello, cosplay worthy character! I'm seriously loving Kiki's clothing revamp. ^w^

This little tidbit I found out just made my night. Kiki's Delivery Service is one of my all-time favorite Studio Ghibli movies (Howl's Moving Castle barely beats this movie out as my top favorite).

I remember when Kiki's Delivery Service was first released here in the States on VHS. It was dubbed in English, but it was one of the best dubs I have ever heard.
I still prefer the English dub of Kiki's Delivery Service with the added sound effects and extra Phil Hartman lines.

The story goes like this: When a witch turns thirteen, she must venture out into the world on her own and find her true calling in society. Kiki is a witch who falls under this category. She leaves home with her cat, Jiji, during a night with a full moon. Kiki goes through many trials during her time away from home, but eventually gets a hang of things with help of friends she makes along the way. A delivery service is how she contributes to society, since flying is her specialty.

Go here to find out more information about the live action movie.
Go here for a chance to purchase the special edition manga that is being made alongside the movie (it's SO incredibly pretty! >w< ).
Go here to purchase the remastered version of Kiki's Delivery Service (not the version that I originally watched. It contains the original music and sound effects from the Japanese version. If you're wanting the original English dub, find the original VHS/DVD).

Have you seen Kiki's Delivery Service? If so, what do you think of this movie? Have you seen all the versions? How do you think it compares to other Studio Ghibli movies? Comment below! ^w^

The Countdown to Halloween: Witchy tunes

I'm currently just obsessing over anything witchy at the moment, with Samhain/Halloween on the way. I'm seriously digging these playlists I found on 8tracks

"Black Magic Sorceress" curated by Rookie

"Something Wicked This Way Comes" curated by ohzoebenson

Other goodies:
When Witches Don't Fight, We Burn curated by House of the Rising Sun
Bitchcraft curated by la-mere-des-dragons
Witchcraft For Headphones curated by boven de grijze wolken

What do you think of these playlists? Any other suggestions for witchy songs? Comment below! ^w^

The Countdown to Halloween: Original Frankenweenie goodness

I had only seen bits and parts of this movie over the years due to poor timing (homework, work, choir concerts, etc.), so my face lit up when I found this movie in full online.

Sit back, and enjoy! ^w^

Have you seen this version of Frankenweenie? If so, have you also seen the remake? How do they compare? Comment below!

The Countdown to Halloween: American Horror Story: Coven

"Wear something... black."
(I adore Emma Roberts' entire outfit in this scene! ^w^ )

If you haven't been keeping up on American Horror Story, you're really missing out.
(The first two seasons are up on Netflix if you want to catch up!)

I think this latest anthology is probably my favorite to date. I love how developed the female characters are on this show in general. They all seem real in their own ways.

My favorite witches of the season so far have to be Madison Montgomery (Emma Roberts) and Misty Day (Lily Rabe).

I really love Madison's power. Telekinesis would be sweet to have for many reasons. I love how she seems unapologetic for who she is. She also wears some of the prettiest outfits on this show (as demonstrated above). *SPOILER!* Episode three was a doozy, with her gaining powers rapidly and such. I hope Misty brings her back before it's too late because the whole scene with Fiona was uncalled for. *SPOILER!*

Ah, the Necromancer. Resurgence is just another amazing ability to have. Her style reminds me of a Mori Girl. I love how she basically is a hippie that just cares about everything, and that shines through in her power. *SPOILER!* With the way she came back in the second episode, I'm curious to find out if her power makes her truly immortal or not. I also hope with Kyle brought back that there's no awkward love triangle between him, Misty, and Zoe. *SPOILER!*

Here are the promos used for this season:

The Countdown to Halloween: Spooky links worth noting

This article and unique haunted house idea just seem refreshing to me. Being both bi and and a feminist, I respect what these people are doing.

With what I have learned about in real estate school, this site is a life saver for Realtors (in some states, it's actually illegal to tell a potential home buyer if a property had a death on it). The site mentioned is really good to know about if you're a wuss when it comes to the possibility of living in a haunted house...or if you're seeking to buy a house with a history. 
Note to readers: In order to find out if a property is haunted, it requires a fee and signup.

I have to say that I'm pretty envious of some of the stuff that Guillermo del Toro owns. He has a hell of a collection.

What do you think of these links? Comment below! ^w^

The Countdown to Halloween: Sequels?!?

I love both Army of Darkness and Beetlejuice. Both of these movies make me heavily nostalgic of great times in my life.

To hear that these two movies have sequels in the works leave me puzzled though. I don't know what to think of it. Will they use the original characters or not? Will they botch up something that was already awesome? Only time will tell.

For more info on this, go here and here.

The Countdown to Halloween: HELL NO

When I saw this for the first time, I couldn't stop laughing.
This trailer is brilliant. I would totally watch this if it were a full movie. XD

The Countdown to Halloween: Monster Madness Marathon watch list

Keeping this short and sweet since I'm pretty exhausted. My glucose levels have been super funny this last week.

Yesterday, I hosted another Halloween party. This get together was pretty chill and only involved close friends this time around.

Pictures to come after I get permission to use them (Denise, Shump, if you're reading this post, I need help!). The camera I wanted to use went bust before the party, so I didn't get pictures of my own. =.=

Anywho, these were movies we either watched, wanted to watch for awhile, or were hard copy suggestions we provided:

+Beetlejuice (we watched this since Denise brought it over. Since it was on Blu-Ray, there were tons of features to look through, which included three selections from the cartoon series! ^w^ )

+Gamera (another movie Denise brought over)

+Hocus Pocus (Katrina's contribution) (Pretty much a Halloween tradition to watch with Ian since we first got together ^w^ )

+Shaun of the Dead (The pool cue scene never fails to make me laugh my ass off)

+Zombieland (what Ian and I watch during our dating anniversary-October 12th)

+American Psycho (Christian Bale is such a creeper in this)

+Trick 'r Treat (I can't rave about this movie enough!)

+Hotel Transylvania (this one cheered Evey up when she woke up during the middle of our marathon)

+The Nightmare Before Christmas (this movie brings back fond childhood memories)

+Sweeney Todd (I love all versions of this)

+Stephen King's Rose Red (Kimberly J. Brown is such a babe. I have loved her since I first watched her act in the Halloweentown series)

+Troll 2 (cause we wanted to laugh our asses off)

 +Hausu (seriously, that cat!)

+Evil Dead 2 (I had been wanting to watch this movie with Ian since I first saw it listed on Netflix)

+Creepshow 2 (we didn't get to this one, but I had especially been waiting to watch this one with Denise since last year's party)

What do you think of these movies? Comment below! ^w^

The Countdown to Halloween: Well...I didn't want to sleep tonight anyway...

It's late at night. You're either bored, stuck at a Halloween party with nothing to do, or are an insomniac. Brownie points for you if you fall into the category of all of the above.

Here are some suggestions for late night festivities that are sure to creep you out no matter if you are alone or in good company:

1. Roam around a cemetery at night either spirit hunting or just taking pictures (best done with an analogue camera!)
2. Use an oujia board to contact the dead (Here is the safest way to do so. That exorcism incense recipe mentioned is extremely useful)
3. Read Creepypasta stories
5. Read stories posted in the /r/No Sleep Reddit thread
6. Play some of the creepiest music you can think of while listening in pure darkness
7. Watch a scary movie that creeps you out to this very day
8. Take a walk down the creepiest street that comes to mind
9. Explore an abandoned area
10. Consume an exotic food or drink (bugs are eaten all around the world. Maybe it's time to try some?)
11. Scream for the hell of it
12. Look up creepy topics online (like crematoriums, cannibals, etc.)
13. Sit by something that makes your skin crawl

What do you think of this list? Have anymore suggestions? Comment below! ^w^

The Countdown to Halloween: Bonus of the day-Black Cat Cafe

When Kotaku mentioned that there was a cafe specializing in black cats, I nearly died from cute overload.

These kind of cafes in Japan were formed for people that would love to interact with animals, but have strict housing rules where they live against animals.

Would you visit this cafe if you had the chance? Comment below! =^w^=

The Countdown to Halloween: The Fatal Frame Challenge

**WARNING!** This challenge is NOT for the faint of heart!

If you had been following this Countdown so far, you probably read this specific post I made. If you haven't, then stop reading this post and go back to that post!

Are you done yet? Good.

Let's begin...


How to play The Fatal Frame Challenge:

1. The more you go into this challenge blindsided, the better the results. Avoid reading or hearing about any spoilers at all costs!!!
2. Obtain a copy of the first Fatal Frame. If you have enough time to do so, collect the rest of the games in the series. The longer you play into this series, the better the results.
3. Obtain a timer. Put it off to the side when you're playing the challenge. Start the timer when you officially start the challenge.
4. Turn out all the lights in the room you're in. Light only one candle. Atmosphere is key to this challenge.
5. Start the timer, then start playing...

Variations to this challenge include secluding yourself into a single room with someone else in charge of the timer on the outside, total darkness in the room you're playing in, and having people that know Fatal Frame like the back of their hands that scare you during key parts.

Have you heard of this challenge before? If so, did you participate at the time? Did you participate this time around after you read the rules? Comment below!

P.S. If you did participate recently, what was your time? ^w^

The Countdown to Halloween: Pumpkin Face Rum

Disclaimer: This is a 21+ post. Just saying this so I won't get into trouble.
For all those that were wondering, I am of drinking age in the U.S. I'm actually turning 24 this coming December 22nd.

When I was on the verge of the ages of 20 and 21, I was pregnant with Evey at the time, so I didn't get to properly celebrate my 21st birthday. Knowing that tidbit made me a sad panda.

Fast forward to when I was finally comfortable with drinking again. Drinks I used to love in the past didn't appeal to/sit well me as much. I used to love mixed drinks, but that definitely changed. I needed to find something that I could drink on its own.

Some of my online buddies exposed me to these gems. Enter Pumpkin Face Rum.
My favorite by far is the Pumpkin Face 23. This is how rum should taste-aged and amazing.

If you want to try these rums for yourself here are the details:
Pumpkin Face White-A white rum that is quite smooth
Pumpkin Face Reserve-A blend of decades old Dominican rums
and last but not least
Pumpkin Face 23-Think of Reserve, but age that longer and in quality oak barrels. Simply perfection

Have you ever tried this type of rum? If so, any thoughts? Comment below! ^w^

The Countdown to Halloween: Board to death

Tabletop activities are close to my heart. They remind me of the good times I have with both friends and family. These games are perfect for playing during a Halloween party or whenever else.

Here are some of my favorites:

Arkham Horror
I got into this game when our friend, Aaron, introduced it to us. This is a game where you play as an investigator with special types of abilities to hunt down ancient creatures, which include Cthulhu. If you're an H.P. Lovecraft fan (like I am!), you especially don't want to miss out! Word of warning though: Make sure you have a long enough time to play this game, as it takes forever.

Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre
This game is close to my heart. Ian got me this game as an early anniversary gift the night after we played this with our regular roleplaying group. We played it the next day with his siblings, and got them hooked. This game is SUPER addictive! You play as a wizard (male or female depending on your place card). Your objective: Kill all the other players around you by laying out devastating card attacks, and become The Last Wizard Standing. If you die during the round, you come back even stronger. This game puts Munchkin to shame, in my honest opinion.

Zombie Dice
I fell in love with this game after I watched Wil Wheaton and his friends first play it on Tabletop. You are given a certain amount of dice. You want to get thirteen brains in order to win the game. There are Runners (people obviously trying to not have their flesh eaten upon by you), which cause you to have to roll the dice again to see your fate. Shotgun blasts draw you closer to your doom. This game is very fast paced, so you can play this game in under an thirty minutes or so.

When dad bought this game at the Mt. Home Air Force Base BX/PX years ago, the rest of my family and I were intrigued and wanted to play, even my grandma! I remember kicking ass as Miss Scarlet. I still love this game many years later, and plan on buying another copy after this latest little girl is born. This is a classic whodunit type game. You play as one of six major characters. You try to guess who the killer is, what the killer used to kill the victim with, and where the murder took place. The biggest kicker is that the killer could be YOU!

Vampire the Masquerade
This game has brought a bunch of joy into my life. I remember first playing this game at a ball I was invited to. Obviously, I was LARPing at the time. The tabletop version is its own can of worms, and should be respected as such. I love this game so much, that Ian surprised me with a hardbound copy of the 20th edition as an anniversary gift. You play as a Childe of the night in one of the many Clans out there. Each clan brings a different personality into the mix. This game is mostly storytelling based, so be prepared to properly roleplay things out.

Hope you check out these games, as they rule! Take care! ^w^

The Countdown to Halloween: Back to the present

Hey everyone! I finally have freed up time to type out current stuff.

First things first, costume ideas keep changing up around here. It hasn't been very pleasant. Ian is in the mode when he just wants to give up because rules at his work take away from any fun ideas due to past workers getting out of hand. We're tighter due to bills than we have been, due to a big portion of money out of pocket being spent on the baby since Aetna won't get their stuff together still, so that's also been taken into account. It just sucks. When you finally see me dressed up, prepared to be surprised.

Second, I've had a lot of people ask me what ever happened to the #4 Speedy Stitcher needles that I wanted. Well, Ian and I checked out the local Cabella's, but they didn't know when the needle set would be back in stock. I ordered two #4 needles from the Sailrite website while their sales were going on. They should be here, via UPS, this Thursday.

I have had people ask me why they saw some current posts earlier in the Countdown. Those were only the bonuses I typed up when I had free time early in the morning. The other stuff was prepped, and edited if need be.

People have asked me if my FIL finally added more to Halloween decorations. That answer is yes, and you will see results very soon. Oh, and we're still behind on decorating due to stuff still needing to be donated around here that's taking up space. Pictures of the living space will be posted once our place is in shape and decorated.

A late decision just made the other day was to let Evey spend the night at my folks' house on Halloween. This is the first time I have made a decision like this, so it's kind of overwhelming, but I think it will work for the best. With everyone around here busy that night, it's the best option to date. I figured that this way she could trick or treat even more, and I would get to enjoy my friend's party thoroughly Halloween night. She would be back during the morning of The Day of the Dead. I would spend the good majority of the day of Halloween with her, so cute pictures will be taken.

To end this post, here is a really cool tutorial I watched the other day that I thought that you would like. If you happen to make these wings, you should post the results in the comments below! Take care! ^w^

The Countdown to Halloween: Goth Chick Appreciation Day

Ironically, I used to do competitive cheerleading when I was younger, along with gymnastics. My folks were obsessed with keeping me fit and out of bad activities.

If you sacrifice all the cheerleaders, you won't know if they will become Goths later on. I've always been Goth at heart since I was little.

...or maybe they're closet Goths. The best example I can give are the kids in Japan that only dress up/do Gothic activities on weekends due to their school dress codes and rules. 

You just never know.

This holiday is pretty clever. I think it captures the spirit of Spooky Season.

Awesome gift ideas for all the Goth girls out there: Oujia boards, tarot cards, decorative skulls (plentiful this time of year! ^w^ ), gingerbread haunted houses, their favorite brand of makeup, or whatever else they like!

The Countdown to Halloween: Simple, but effective DIY ideas

Sometimes, you're really short on cash or need an idea for last minute costume for a party or for trick or treating with little ones.
That's where simplicity comes in.

Over the years, I have admired Martha Stewart. She has taken super simple ideas and made them elegant over the years.

Take these horns for instance (as demonstrated above). They are made with air dried clay. Perfect for demon or creature related costumes. You can even go wild and make them bigger and curled downward. Hello, awesome Minotaur costume?

How about these masks? This simple template can be used to make all sorts of masks. Out of the ones shown, I'm really digging the bird and flower petal masks the most. The dark bird mask (featured above) can easily be converted to go with a masquerade outfit or even complete a plague doctor costume.

Take one or both of these ideas, and be super creative with them. You'll have no worries about pulling a costume faux pas (unless that's what you're going for).

The Countdown to Halloween: Blythe Scary Boo! Again

If you know me, you know I love Blythe dolls.

I have never had the fortune of owning one, and I hope that changes this year around my anniversary, birthday, or Christmas. *hint hint*

I love how these dolls are creepily cute. They are one of many types of dolls that have inspired horror stories, movies, and shows over the years.

They have little pull strings on the back of their bodies that allow you to change the colors of their eyes. Custom Blythe dolls are even cooler. They are like Talky Tina, but less freakier, in my honest opinion.

Junie Moon, one of the official retailers of Blythe dolls, has put out yet another amazing set of Blythe Halloween outfits for 2013.

Here is information on each set featured:
and last but not least "Ghost"

My favorite Scary Boo! Again set is either Bats or Pumpkin.

Have you ever heard of Blythe dolls? If so, do you own one? Which set featured above is your favorite? Comment below! ^w^

Note to the readers: These doll clothes are sized for Neo sized Blythes. These are only clothing sets, and don't come with the doll they are paired with in the pictures.

The Countdown to Halloween: Bonus of the day-MoH sizzle reel

It's interesting to see what turns people on to the horror genre.

The Countdown to Halloween: The Black Halloween

Here's another short but sweet posting.

Getting more things prepped for the Halloween party coming up. Ian's OCD about getting everything cleaned to perfection, even more so than usual with the baby on the way. Decorating is a bit on the slow side this year (on our end), but I think we'll manage before the party happens. My FIL just barely put some of the decorations out. He said that he would have decorated on Misgivings Day, but the weather was too cold then and super rainy to boot. I think he was also trying not to offend Gazo (who hates Halloween).

Still trying to find a #4 sized needle to use for some of the heavy duty sewing projects since my sewing machine is still out of commission. I hope Cabella's has it...

Take care everyone. ^w^

The Countdown to Halloween: Make me creepy

There are so many talented makeup artists found online. I love looking at Youtube for inspiration for even everyday looks.
Here are some ideas for those that love to mess around with makeup around Halloween:

Oh, and for those that are reading this blog that are attending my Halloween party on the 18th: I'm going to be rocking one of these looks. Can you guess which one it is? ^w^

The Countdown to Halloween: Steiff Scary Cat

(Taking a break from some of the heavier posts, as Evey is quite fussy at the moment. They will return shortly.)

It's crazy to think that the original Steiff Scary Cat was first made 111 years ago.

If you know Steiff stuffed animals, you know you're getting something that happens to be the best of the best and will last forever.

Steiff happened to make another Scary Cat that is exclusive to North America this year.

It looks like this:
Isn't it just adorable? ^w^

Here is the official page that explains more about this creepily cute kitty, along with its purchasing information.

Note: If you happen to get me one of these, I will love you forever. :P 
*avid doll/stuffed animal collector*

P.S. If the Steiff Scary Cat is out of your budget for this year, check out the Williams-Sonoma Steiff Black cat (also a 2013 exclusive) located here.
