Day 5: Log Lady

(Or: "My log has something to tell you.") Anyone who's ever talked to me about TV probably knows that I'm obsessed with Twin Peaks. I love the original series, the return, and even Fire Walk With Me (I know). It was a struggle to limit myself to only a couple Twin Peaks costumes, and an ...

Day 4: Lydia Deetz

(Or: "My whole life is a dark room.") Much like my internal debate between book-Annie and movie-Annie, I had trouble choosing between movie-Lydia and cartoon-Lydia. The Beetlejuice cartoon was a huge part of my childhood--and is probably the reason that I love a good cape. As with Annie, I settle on a combination of the ...

Day 3: Annie Wilkes

(Or: "Can't suture... Got to cauterize.") Is it any sursprise that one of my costumes is from a Stephen King novel? It's probably even less surprising that I chose something from one of my top three favourite King novels (The Shining, Misery, and 11/22/63, in case you were curious). When I was planning out the ...

Day 2: Morticia Addams

(Or: "Don't torture yourself, Gomez. That's my job.") I've loved Morticia Addams ever since I saw the Addams Family movie back in the early 90s, so when I was putting together my post ideas, I knew that she had to be one of them. (It also helps that I already have an assortment of black ...

Costume 1: Zombie

(Or: "Braaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiinnnssssssssss") Every year, I spend ages trying to choose between a few ideas for Halloween costumes and wishing that I had more than one or two opportunities to dress up. This year, I decided to take full advantage of having this blog, and I'm going to do 12 different costume tutorials from now until ...

Very Superstitious

(or I Know This Makes Me Sound Crazy) I'd like to say that I wasn't always superstitious, but that would be a lie. The first one I remember buying into was the good old "don't step on a crack or you'll break your mother's back." Thankfully I've since outgrown that one (sorry, Mom), but I ...

Favourite Halloween Episodes

(Programming note: I'll be a little light on content for the rest of the week as I prepare a number of Halloween posts for the next couple of weeks. Please bear with me!) My love for Halloween-themed media isn't limited to movies. I also spend this season watching the Halloween episodes of my favourite TV ...
