Happy Halloween, My Dears!

What a wickedly wonderful October it has been! Now that we’ve finally arrived at this most excellent of holidays, I just want to wish each and every one of you a Happy Halloween! ❀ November is nearly upon us, which means my month long blogging hiatus I mentioned previously is about to commence. It’s all in the spirit of NaNoWriMo and I will miss each and every one of you in November, but I shall return come December. (Hopefully with news of a successful NaNoWriMo.) πŸ˜‰

To those of you also participating in the challenge, I wish you the best of luck and look forward to seeing how you do when the month comes to an end.

Now, let’s get back to the Halloween talk, shall we?? πŸ˜€ This Halloween was basically a month-long affair for me. Between doing Halloween-related activities all throughout the month at work and nomming on ALL the pumpkin goodies, I also squeezed in some ghastly good times binging on horror movies/shows and partaking in frightening festivities. The highlight of which has been, without a doubt, the big halloween bash that is Detroit’s very own Theatre Bizarre! Mr. Moth and I attended the event, hosted in the Detroit Masonic Temple (the largest Masonic temple in the world) where they transformed eight floors into a wonderland of curiosities and Halloween delight.

With burlesque performances, live bands, fire dancers, contortionists, body suspension, a ghost train, and so much more, we wound up being up well into the early hours of the morning hustling around to see as many of the sights as we could.

One of the rules for entry into the event is that costumes are absolutely mandatory. We decided to go in matching black and white attire and dress up as skeletons for the night. Originally, the plan was to get our makeup professionally done, but the makeup place was booked the day of the event so I sucked it up and bought the needed cosmetics and ended up doing our makeup myself. I’ve never tried doing face paint before, but I’m pretty happy with how our makeup turned out. We got a lot of compliments throughout the night from people. πŸ™‚

It was utterly amazing seeing the way they transformed the historic building into a sort of hellish vaudevillian escape. It was something I’d been wanting to experience for myself for some time, so I’m beyond happy that we went.

 

I hope each of you has been having an equally fun October and has a wonderful Halloween! Looking forward to catching up with everyone come December when NaNoWriMo and my month-long blogging hiatus come to an end. ❀ Take care, everyone!! ❀ ❀ ❀

Oh, and here is my final Inktober drawing. Wish I’d had time to do more of them throughout the month, but it is what it is! πŸ˜›

    1. It was so much fun! πŸ™‚ I hope you find something similar close to where you live. I feel like that with so many things as well, living in Michigan and all, so I feel ya! lol It seems like I see so many cool things going on, but they’re nowhere near where I live.

  2. Oh wow love! Cool post. That Detroit Masonic Lodge party sounds amazing. You two looked bloody cool. I’m so jealous !!!!!! I was on my own for Halloween so it was beer, pizza and Dawn of the Dead (2004) and The Descent. 🀟🏼 Good luck with the writing. We’ll all miss you in November Miss Spooky. Here’s some useless info for you. As you know my real name is Luke and one of my sisters always calls me Spook and always has. The other sister calls me Puke. Haha. Yeah she’s not in my will dammit!

    1. Hello! πŸ™‚ Thank you so much! The Halloween bash was a lot of fun, but your pizza/zombie/beer way of spending Halloween sounds pretty awesome as well! πŸ˜›
      Haha and your sisters nicknames for you are hilarious. I know a girl who nicknamed herself “Puke” back in high school oddly enough.
      Hope you’ve been well! Looking forward to catching up on your posts I’ve missed during my hiatus. πŸ™‚
