Happy Halloween!

Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of my costume this year (it's ok it was pretty plain anyways), so I thought I'd share a fun one from when I was a kid.

I present you with my super-fantastic-you-know-you're-jealous Ms Frizzle costume!

BAHAHAHA! And in case you're wondering my sister on the left is the Queen of Hearts (her class had to dress as nursery rhyme characters that year) and my little sis is the cutest little bumble bee you ever did see!

What was your favourite costume you wore as a kid?!
Mine is a tie between this one and my first ever halloween when I was a pink cat.

Party Post: Meet The Ghastlies

blog lovelymissmegs megan blog party
Hi, my name is Emma, and I have a blog called Little Gothic Horrors. I'd like to thank Megan for inviting me to her October Blog party, and I hope she won't mind, but I've brought some friends along with me. I'd like to introduce you all to The Ghastlies. If you're not already familiar with them, The Ghastlies are part of the Halloween range from Alexander Henry Fabrics, and in my opinion, are the perfect guests for any Halloween soiree.

blog lovelymissmegs megan blog party

The Ghastlies

"In Ghastlie Manor on Ghastlie Street, there's a Ghastlie family there to meet. Mathilda Ghastlie with husband too, extend a Ghastlie hand to you. It's a Ghastlie day for a Ghastlie walk, under Ghastlie trees on a Ghastlie block. A Ghastlie time for Ghastlie things, like Ghastlie pets with Ghastlie wings!"


Alexander Henry Fabrics (Link: http://www.ahfabrics.com/collections/category/18-theghastlies)

For anyone familiar with my blog, you'll already know that it's no secret that I adore "The Addams Family". Even my profile picture is of my favourite couple, Morticia and Gomez. I like to think of Little Gothic Horrors as a dwelling place for all things delightfully dark, and for me, nothing is more delightfully dark than "The Addams Family". In recent times, however, another creepy clan, The Ghastlies, has come to my attention, and I have become quite besotted with them.

Along with Jack-o'-Lanterns, nothing symbolizes Halloween quite like a spooky house, and a spooky house needs a spooky family. Ghastlie Manor and its eerie inhabitants fit the bill bewitchingly. The images on these fabrics are not only aesthetically just my cup of tea, but they also manage to create an entire little world of Victorian Gothic houses, graveyards, bats, witches, and vampires as the backdrop for this sinister bunch, and their cat, Sebastian.

So, enjoy mingling with The Ghastlies at Lovely Miss Megs' October Blog party, but beware, I can't guarantee that they'll behave!
__________________________________________________________________________

What a fabulous group of people to bring to the party! Thanks for introducing us Emma. And thank you for letting us know where we can order the fabric. You can bet I'll be buying some!

If you're a fan of all things spooky, gothic, horror or Halloween related be sure to check out Little Gothic Horrors. I love the way Emma writes and her blog fulfills my wish that every day could be Halloween.

These are such great ideas Kait! What I love most about them is that once Halloween is over you can easily incorporate these clothes into your wardrobe (compared to the store bought costumes that you wear once and that's it.) What's even more exciting is that I'm being one of the costumes on this list too! What a crazy random happenstance! This year for Halloween I'm dressing as Daria.

Zombie Boy: Rick Genest

I so have the hots for Rick Genest, aka Zombie Boy, aka Rico the Zombie. He is seriously so gorgeous, and I love how he has turned his entire body into a piece of art.
blog lovelymissmegs megan rico rick genest
I remember back in the day seeing him in Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' video and thinking, damn that guy is so hot! So then I started googling trying to see what he looked like in real life and to my pleasant surprise, he looked JUST LIKE THAT! And even better he's Canadian! He has one of the most amazing back stories too, a true rag to riches story which I highly suggest you read.

blog lovelymissmegs megan rico rick genest
His popularity since then has sky rocketed and you can find him in tons of projects as a model or an actor. He still maintains his sideshow act too which is super cool if you aren't creeped out by that sort of thing.

He was even at this year's FanExpo but I didn't get to meet him because he was there on a different day than I was. :( Oh well, there will be other chances I'm sure. Until then, enjoy these photos and video. I thought they would be fun to share since Halloween is 4 days away, and he's The Zombie Boy.

Party Post: Stephanie's List of Must Watch Halloween Shows

blog lovelymissmegs megan blog party
Hello Lovely Miss Megʼs readers, this is Stephanie from Someday Smarter. Besides, getting to dress up in a cool costume and having another excuse to eat copious amounts of candy, I look forward to Halloween because it signals to me the return of the Halloween themed episodes!

blog lovelymissmegs megan blog party
Itʼs The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown - How can I not have this on my list? Such a classic cartoon that I look forward to watching every year. Poor Linus, forever waiting for The Great Pumpkin. The boy who waited. :P I know you can now buy it on DVD, but itʼs so not the same as watching it on TV.

blog lovelymissmegs megan blog party
Community - “Epidemiology” (Season 2) - Community has a way with perfectly skewing pop culture references in to a 22 min comedy and this episode is no exception. Thereʼs a outbreak at Greendale due to contaminated meat served at the Halloween party and itʼs up to the gang to not get turned. Great references to zombie movies like Night of the Living Dead and 28 Days Later thereʼs one scene where set to a classic 70ʼs song, they fight off the zombies, much like in Shaun of the Dead.

blog lovelymissmegs megan blog party
Halloween Town - Itʼs a cheesy, but fun film about a girl that discovers sheʼs a witch and sets off to Halloween Town to find out more about it. Itʼs classic early ʼ00 Disney Channel before the Mileyʼs and Selenaʼs that we have now. Plus Debbie Reynolds is in it.

blog lovelymissmegs megan blog party
Are You Afraid of the Dark? - Not exactly Halloween themed, but this was one of those shows that scared the crap out of me, yet I would still watch it. After some episodes, I would go straight to my room and hide underneath the covers. Despite that I still wanted to become a member of The Secret Society.
_________________________________________________________________________
These are all great recommendations Stephanie! I LOVE that episode of Community! In fact it was the first episode I ever saw, so clearly it got me hooked. I love all your other suggestions too. The Halloweentown series is great!

Be sure to check out more from Stephanie over on her blog. This girl is fantastic because she shares her fashion savvy style mixed with her fun personality. I also love how she's not afraid to let her nerdy side show, and I have her to thank for getting me addicted to Doctor Who! So be sure to hop on over there and say hi!

Party Post: Annie's Apple Pie For Dummies!

blog lovelymissmegs megan blog party
Hi everyone! Annie here from the blog Wattlebird. I'm so happy Meg is giving me the chance to share one of my greatest fall accomplishments to date! Without further ado, I give you... Apple Pie for Dummies!

This year, my main goal for the fall was to bake an apple pie completely from scratch. I'm not much of a baker, but I was really hoping said pie would at least be edible and taste like, well, a pie. I'm so happy - I met and exceeded that standard!

Clearly, as this was my first pie-making experience, I did not make my own recipe, but I did mesh a few other ones together. I used this one to make the crust, this one for the filling, I made the top crust glaze from this one (only half the amount though).

blog lovelymissmegs megan blog party wattlebird apple pie
It took a looooong time, but it was actually really fun and fulfilling. And it tasted realllllly good if I do say so myself. I might start making pies more often, then I hope my life just becomes like an episode of Pushing Daisies (but without the death stuff probably). Who else misses that show??

Thanks again to Meg for allowing me to share my experience as a pie maker! Stop by and visit my blog, if you'd like. I'd love to "meet" you!
________________________________________________________________________

Congrats on your pie making success Annie, it looks AMAZING! If you ever open up that Pushing Daisies pie shop let me know and I'll for sure be the first in line. ...I miss that show so much.

Now before you run off to make your own delicious pies, be sure to visit Annie's blog! She's one of my favourite crafty ladies who posts the coolest DIYs, outfit posts and my personal favourite, her pictures of cute animals posts! She sure knows how to brighten your day! :D
