Halloween Masterpost

I had so many plans for Halloween posts that failed to materialize. We had a bit of trouble getting wifi set up in our new house and I've only just got it back. Let me tell you, you don't realize how much you use the internet until you're completely deprived of it for a couple weeks. Homework was a nightmare.


Instead of all the fun, creative things I had planned to write I'm going to do one big (Really big) Halloween roundup and save those ideas for next year. Let's see how long I can go before I bore you to a premature death. So, to start off, how about some books that will get you in the Halloween spirit? Many may be rereads, but they'll always be great.






    


Of course, then you've got movies. Halloween wouldn't be Halloween without a few scary (or hilariously cheesy) movies. There's a little for everyone here.


    

       



          


Us Goths really listen to 'spooky' music all year round, but having a specific Halloween playlist is always fun. Here are some of the things I have on mine.


Everyday is Halloween- Ministry




Monsters in Tinsel Town- Astrovamps



Filistata- Stolen Babies



Don't Fear the Reaper- Blue Oyster Cult



Moundshroud- Cinema Strange



Mommy's little monsters- Creature Feature (Though you might as well just play all of their songs)




Dragula- Rob Zombie



Dead Man's Autochop- Specimen



Day of the Dead- Voltaire (I was very tempted to put Brainz)



Here are some quick and fun crafts to spice up your house.

And of course, here are some of my favorite posts so far dealing with Halloween.

If you've made it this far down, I visited a haunted corn maze last weekend and it was fantastic. They put a lot of effort into it. We got lost several times only to be chased back by some horror (The chainsaws...*shudders*) and I was suitably terrifed. Not to mention it was only $8. Let me tell you, I always recommend haunted corn mazes. Go out searching!

What is everyone dressing up as? I'm going as Cecil from Welcome to Nightvale. My headcannon is more or less the popular one with included third eye and tentacle tattoos. I'm planning an actual cosplay for April so I figured this would get me halfway there. Pictures to come in a few days.

    I was a Victorian zombie, complete with bowler hat.
    It looked more like zombified Dorian Gray, but that's just a specific type of the objective... ;)
