Spoopy Halloween Countdown

Now that October had wound down I think it is time to share my Spoopy Halloween Countdown in full. WTF is a "Spoopy Halloween Countdown"? You may be asking. Well this all started when I noticed the first of October fell on a Wednesday, so I decided to have a bit of fun with it and dress up in a similar style to Wednesday Addams. Upon seeing this, a friend suggested I do a different costume look every day counting down to Halloween. It would just be makeup and hair and basically be a closet cosplay series. I wanted more practice with makeup outside the gyaru style, since that is normal for me, so I thought trying out some costume looks might be fun. So here it is all my looks counting down to Halloween.

And so The Spoopy Halloween Countdown comes to a close. It was fun while it lasted though and helped me get into the Halloween spirit. Multiple pictures of each look are here if you wanna check those out. I think I actually had the most fun with Elvira since I got to use props XD
I had a great time this Halloween. I just used one of the cosplay costumes I'd been working on, I picked Harley Quinn since I knew I'd be outside for a while and that costume covers the most skin. It actually wasn't very cold at all this year until much later in the night.

I took my niece downtown to the "Halloween Bash" they have down there so she could Trick or Treat....I got some candy too while we were down there lol. People see me dressed up and seem to feel obligated to give me candy too, so why not? lol
The wind messed up my collar >:|

The cold really wasn't an issue but the wind sure was! It started blowing strands of my hair out of my hood and blowing my collar every which way! NONE of my pictures include my shoes too >:( Maybe I can track down some of the people who asked for a picture of and with me...perhaps they got some better shots that included my shoes. Also, my hood started eventually riding up too XD. It's good that wore this on Halloween instead of to a convention though because it gives me time to work out these kinks.

 Then we all came home, ordered some pizza and watched scary movies. Later in the night me and my sister read scary stories and watched ghost hunting shows. It was pretty fun. I kind of wish we'd done more birthday oriented things for my brother's birthday (also on Halloween) but he just wanted to do Halloween things. Maybe next year? I hope everyone else had a great Halloween!
