From : Long Beach, California
It started simple enough; free candy plus getting to don a costume every October. I think I’ve always loved dressing up more than most. As I got older I realized candy or not I truly loved Halloween more than any other time of year.
I noticed myself getting more excited for it every year & would always think about it during the rest of year. I also noticed myself becoming more interested in costumes.
I love getting dressed up & going to the pumpkin patch & picking the perfect pumpkin. I also love shopping around for Halloween goodies. I can’t forget exploring the Disneyland resort & the Mickey Pumpkin!
The first year I attended Mickey’s not so scary Halloween party at Disneyland I finally got to make an Oogie Boogie costume. It came out awesome & everybody loved it!
Everything. It just makes me happy. It’s the one time of year when I can truly be myself without the negativity & confusion from others.
I’ll always have a special place in my heart for candy corn & Reese’s pumpkins. But I’m a total sweet tooth so I pretty much love all Halloween sweets.
Everything! Pumpkin delights are my absolute favorite seasonal food. In fact I’ve got two boxes of them in my freezer to tide me over until September.
I never stop shopping for Halloween. I happen to find myself constantly searching for Halloween items.
I was born in the fall so I’ve always had an affinity for that time of year. I love the traditions whether they’re silly or truly special. The smell in the air. The changes in nature.
Some people have negative connotations towards Halloween for some reason. The Halloween season isn’t long enough either.
It’s actually something I don’t own it yet. My mom has this ceramic jack o lantern & it lights up. It’s from before I was born & has always been my favorite Halloween decoration. Last Halloween she told me one day she would pass it down to me.
Actually yes. During the Halloween party at Disneyland they have treat trails set up & I love getting to feel like a kid again & actually trick or treat!
I remember being dressed as a little devil, walking through my childhood neighborhood crunching leaves as I collected candy.
Up until this year I had a few items that I used to store during the non Halloween months, but I’ve decided to leave it up all year long. The decor in my kitchen & bathroom is mostly Halloween too.
I have this keen ability to find Halloween items everywhere! I prefer to buy from the small shops who make Halloween items year round & through thrifting.
Halloween, HalloweenTown, The Simpson’s treehouse of horror, Hocus Pocus, & I’m sure I’m forgetting like 10 other things.
Yes, living in Southern California there’s Halloween stuff pretty much everywhere during September & October.
It’s not hard to find decorations but I really like to make my own decor!
Halloween/Horror is life.
I went to school for photography so I get really picky about photos. Background is always important to me along with the composition & the little details. I have a tendency to get a little carried away.
Haha way more time than I should.
I wouldn’t really associate myself with having any fame. I just love being in a position to find others who share my way of life.
Clothing / style
Torrid, Ross, Thrift Stores
I really love black lace & dresses with sleeves. Anything Halloweenie.
Look everywhere! Thrift stores can often have hidden gems. eBay, Amazon, & Etsy are always a worth a look see. Especially because a lot of places discount items during non Halloween times.
Of course! I collect Halloween accessories so I can add some Halloween cheer to any outfit.
Whats your favourite Halloween clothing /accessories/bags/shoes etc?
The Halloween Disneyland hoodie from last season. Michael Myers Halloween sweater from Middle of Beyond. The orange pumpkin bag I won last year from love, pain, & stitches.
Sometimes. It truly depends on the situation.
