What made you love Halloween so strongly?

It’s hard to pinpoint the source of what made me love Halloween so strongly. There’s something about the decorating, dressing up, and Halloween crafts! I love all of it! Especially handing out candy to kiddos.

How did you get into Halloween ?

When I was younger I played dress up all the time, so being able to dress up and getting candy late at night made younger me love the holiday! Then eventually I liked other aspects of Halloween.

What is your favorite things to do on/around Halloween ?

Here in Texas, we have a lot of pumpkin patches and corn mazes. That is definitely the thing to do in October! There are no festivals or parades for Halloween sadly.

Can you remember which Halloween costume was your favorite one?

My favorite Halloween costume would have to be the year I dressed as I pirate with my husband. That was our first Halloween together, and I got to match costumes with my soul mate.

What does Halloween mean to you?

Halloween is a night of being goofy or scary, and just plain fun! And now that I am becoming a Wiccan, Halloween/Samhain will have even more meaning to me.

Of all the amazing Halloween candy you can get now adays , what is your favourite? ( Old Classics/ New style candy etc )

Oh boy. I used to like all the chocolate candy bars or sometimes if you’re lucky you will come across a house that makes their own candy (which is the best)! But now i prefer the sour candies like airheads, sourpatch kids, or lollipops. Too much chocolate for me gives me a bad tummyache, sadly.

What Halloween food and drinks are you most excited about?

I am mainly excited about Halloween drinks. I love the creative alcoholic drinks that you can find on Pinterest for Halloween. They look so pretty! For the food, I haven’t come across anything that I wanted to make but I am open to suggestions!

When do you start shopping for Halloween?

I try to start as soon as the shop starts putting items out. In Texas, Halloween isn’t as important as Christmas so most shops usually wait until October put things out (which is really annoying). But I will buy as much as I can, and then after everything is discounted I will buy more! But I usually wait for the most expensive stores to discount their items. I usually buy from dollar tree for most of my needs!

What about Halloween makes it your favorite holiday?

The overall spirit of Halloween makes it my favorite. The general sense of excitement and silliness makes it the best holiday ever!

Do you think it has any negative sides to it?

In my opinion, I don’t think Halloween has anything negative sides to it. I know there’s a lot of religious people who don’t celebrate or believe that Halloween should be allowed. Living in the Bible Belt taught me that. But someone else’s religion is not my problem. You worship who you want and celebrate what you want as long as it doesn’t hurt others. And I will continue to celebrate Halloween!

What is the Favorite Halloween item you have?

My mixing bowl/ Popcorn bowl/ candy bowl! I use that thing all year round for just about everything in the kitchen. It has a cute little owl on it.

Do you still go trick or treating?

I take my brother almost every year but I personally don’t ask for candy. I usually buy a lot of candy to hand out to trick r treaters after I take my brother out to trick r treat.

Can you remember your first Halloween memory?

Oh, my goodness yes. I remember I was a popcorn box for Halloween and my dad scared the crap out of me with a werewolf mask.

Do you keep all your Halloween decorations out all year or do you start decorating at a certain time?

I will decorate early September, and put up decorations two weeks before Christmas. Last year I simply hung up all my decorations in my office!

Where do you buy your Halloween items?

I usually buy from Dollar Tree because you can never overspend in that store! Plus I always buy more than what I intend to buy.

Whats your favorite Halloween movie/series?


My favorite Halloween Movie is Scream. That was one of the first horror movies I watched when I was little, and I have been in love with the movie franchise since. I also really like the Scream series. I recommend that to anyone that isn’t squimmish.

How is Halloween celebrated in the US?

Traditionally, you would dress up and go door to door saying ” Trick or treat”, and then get candy. One time a kid came up to me, said ” Trick or Treat”. And I told him ” Trick”. He just stood there not knowing what to say or do. So I gave him candy lol.

*******INSTAGRAM*********

What made you want to start a Halloween related Instagram?

Honestly, i wanted to dedicate a page on Halloween because that is all I ever followed on my private account. So I made a Halloween account that I liked, and eventually, people started to follow. Which kinda shocked me, and I felt so grateful that I did giveaways! Now here I am, still doing giveaways, and my account has turned more witchy.

What is important themes to you when posting pictures?

I feel like that themes have to match my mood or a picture that caught my eye so I need to share this with everyone! Most of my themes are witchy with a touch of Halloween, and some random stuff.

How much time do you spend of your day/week on Instagram?

I try not t spend a lot of time on Instagram, but I do spend a few hours a day on it. Posting, scrolling, adding stuff to my story, etc.

********Clothing/Style********

Where do you usually buy your clothes?

I usually like t buy my clothes online. There are some days where I want to buy a new dress, so I will look on Amazon. Or maybe I will want to look for a good Dungeons and Dragons T-shirt, so I will search AC10.

what style of clothing do you like to buy?

I mainly own a lot of dark colors and I wear leggings all the time! But if I leave the house I try to wear something more decent. But my color choices are still the same.

Do you have any tips on where to find awesome Halloween clothing for the rest of us Halloween addicts?

I usually get some cool finds at Walmart, Charlies project leggings and a thrift store! Chares project has cute Halloween leggings all year round (they are an online store). I have a good amount of leggings that are Halloween/fall related!

Do you wear Halloween/Horror styled clothes all year?

Yes, I do! The day after Christmas I went to Walmart with my Halloween themed poncho, with Halloween leggings!

Whats your favorite Halloween clothing /accessories/bags/shoes tec?

I actually have a pair of ghost face tights that I am obsessed with! they are super comfy and cool to look at. I also have Halloween keychains and necklaces too!

Have you worked hard on your style?

On my style? Not really. I feel like most of my style consists of tights and over sized t shirts. I love being comfy!
