This jumper is my favorite piece of clothing this week! (Well who wouldn't love knitted bones?) It's one of those pieces that I like to call comfort clothes, it's been a painfully grim week and the cozy softness of the jumper almost fully protects me from the bites of countless tasks and deadlines that are draining my energy more effectively than any Dracula ever could. Almost.
It also gets me in a more playful and ghoulish mood for All Hallows Eve! And it looks surprisingly feminine when paired with a tight pencil skirt and a corset underneath, although originally it's meant for little boys. :D Plus it's warm, so it keeps the frosty October/November air and chilly gusts away from my bones.
And some other things I enjoy right now, all connected to Halloween. The remains of my positive attitude supplies fortify themselves with Halloweeny things, so here we go!:
♥ Films that get you into that special Halloween mood. Nightmare before Christmas and Hocus Pocus are childhood classics (and once, a long long time ago, my brother lured me to see Pet Semetary by promising it's a cute animal movie. Yeah, really cute..!!) and they simply must be watched in these Jack'O'Lantern lit times. Which leads my thoughts to..
♥ Pumpkins! Tomorrow I'm aiming to carve the very first pumpkin of my whole life! These little monsters still have the grocery shop's stickers on them, I'm not sure which grins I'm going to replace them with but we'll see. I'm so excited, this is something I've always wanted to do but never quite got a chance! Unfortunately we don't have a balcony or yard in this house so we'll have to be careful not to burn the whole place down to a smothering pile of dreams and coals with these babies.
♥ Halloween decor and plans! We're going to throw a bone-shaking Halloween party for friends on Saturday, last year was so great that the pics never made their way into this blog, thehhee. I actually still have a sketch post in my archives but I guess a whole year is a too long time gap for posting it. The Oogie Boogie costume that my friend made has since become legendary.
♥ Tomorrow we're having a Halloween roller derby practice, I can't wait! Zombie tag and other grisly games are in the repertoire, all played on wheels of course. :) It'll also be a horror of another kind for me since my new skates are killing my poor little feet, it'll take some time, sweat and blisters to break them in but they're worth it.
♥ My Halloween costume! Can't turn the clock to go faster, but I'd love to wear it already. I need to tweak some details and it's still not going to be perfect, nowhere near that, but it might just be my favorite costume so far. Maybe because I have a special bond with the character. But you'll see it after Saturday. ;) I wish you all a ghastly great Halloween weekend, have a fun & spooky time!
