Religion, Philosophy, UFOs

 I was feeling down in the dumps today because I'm exhausted and it was miserably grey outside. To pull myself out of the doldrums, I rode my bike a half hour to the nearest Value Village to get my Halloween on. I had been planning on going as a fortune teller and I already had most of my costume, but I really wanted a wig. So I bought one. I'm not sure whether this is my official costume, but I had fun wearing it around my backyard taking photos. I really love the sheer button-up.

Everything is thrifted except for my boots (Spring, but they pinch my toes and I wear them anyway) crystal ball (found in my house) and headband (made by me). Wig is "Alter Ego" Value Village brand.

I'm feeling pretty spooky 'n whatnot so here are my 5 of my favourite Halloween movies/episodes:
1. Psycho
2. Sleepaway Camp
3. Something Wicked This Way Comes
4. My So-Called Life Halloween episode
5. Goosebumps "The Haunted Mask"

I'll probably think of even better ones later, but 'whatevs', as they say.

What are you going as for Halloween/What are your favourite Halloween movies?

Sad songs and insecurities bing bang boom

I've been terribly busy with school and such lately and I haven't really had too much time to blog. I spent the weekend in my grandparents' small town a few weeks ago and I took a bunch of pictures with a disposable Fujifilm camera. I also finally got around to dyeing my hair. My friend bleached it for me, but we got freaked out and took it off a bit early. It was quite yellow so I toned it twice with Manic Panic Virgin Snow then gave in and covered it in Pretty Flamingo for three hours. It turned out kind of strawberry-blonde/pinky peach. I like it, but I'm not so sure how long I'm going to keep it. I have grad photos in just over a month, so we'll see if I dye it back to 'normal'.
