This is Halloween ~*'.~

So my favorite holiday has come and gone sadly but I had tons of fun during this spooky season. Most of this month, I've been having horror movie fests with friends watching classics and movies I have been meaning to see, but never did. Such include:
The Wicker Man
The Convent
Kiss of the Vampire
The Happening
Dawn of the Dead
Earnest-Scared Stupid
Nightmare on Elm Street
Dog Soldiers
The Descent
and I'm going to see Paranormal Activity 3 this Saturday. :)

With Halloween there will always be Halloween parties, especially since 2 of my friends have birthdays on the 29th and the 31st. We all crowded into Lauren and Kathleen's apartment to celebrate Kristie's birthday with amazing fun and spirits. Since I'm poor this month, I decided to just make a DIY costume of an undead tourist. It's actually the first time me and Argel have dressed as a couple so I was kind of excited. Here's what we whipped up: Zombie Tourists (ugh...yeah I know...) 

Then there's Halloween day! I took the liberty of dressing up for work Monday because, well, its me, and any excuse for me to dress up (other than cons) is good enough for me! lol but I didn't do anything too crazy because well, I'd be sitting in front of a computer for 5 hours. I decided to use my leftovers:cat ears and a wig (real original eh?)

That night we got the kids ready for some trick-or-treating around the block and luckily the weather wasn't too bad. I believe it was only 7 degrees that night compared to last year where a billion layers wasn't enough. Amelie was a one eyed blue monster and Genevieve was a little chicken. (too cute! XD) They were both very excited to receive all the free candy and chowed down as soon as the bag was dumped out. I do wish people would decorate their houses like they used to back in the day. I mean, people would go all out, flashing lights, scary music, cobwebs and floating ghosts so much. I think it's the fact that the candy is so expensive that all they can afford is a pumpkin to carve, if that. There's one house we go to every year that does just that, and kudos to them for making a visual impact on the block. Til next year!
