Fun Halloween Facts!

Halloween is a holiday steeped in rich tradition throughout the world.   The word Halloween comes from an Old English form of All Hallow's Eve, known as All Hallow's Ev'en (Evening). This night has long ushered in the dark half of the year in many regions of the world.  Halloween was once a night that caused anxiety and dread among those terrified their souls may be taken by evil beings from beyond the veil between the world of the living and the dead!  Its said the veil between the world of the living and the dead is most thin on All Hallow's Eve! 

Halloween was originally dubbed The Festival of Samhain, a Celtic celebration that ushered in "the dying of the light" (summer's end), an evening on which the spirits of the dead (good and evil) were permitted by The Lord of The Dark, Samhain, to wander Earth and intermingle with the living.  The Celtic Druid's New Year was on November 1, which later became All Soul's Day. Ancient Celts lit bonfires on Samhain night to fend off evil spirits who came out in the darkness.
  • The Cutty Black Sow is a demon in Welsh folklore believed to steal souls on Halloween.
  • Halloween is the night before The Catholic, All Soul's Day, a day to honor canonized saints.
  • All Soul's Day was created to integrate Celtic Druid into Christian traditions as converts.
  • Kids once went door to door offering prayers in exchange for soul cakes on Halloween.
  • Masks were worn as disguises to confuse and ward off evil spirits on All Hallow's Eve.
  • Masks were also worn to honor ancestors who passed away.
  • Jack-o-Lanterns were originally made out of turnips.
  • Large Potatoes and rutabagas were also utilized in Europe for carving.
  • Pumpkins are native to North America, not Europe.
  • Seeds were brought back to Europe from America and Europe was introduced to the pumpkin!
  • Bobbing for apples was a form of divining that foretold the type of man a woman would marry.
  • Most kids who have been poisoned with candy were victims of family members, not strangers.
Have a pleasant evening and hopefully the Cutty Black Sow doesn't steal your soul for a snack.  Maybe you should bake that bitch a soul cake!  Happy All Hallow's Ev'n!

12th Night Til Halloween - Femme Fatales - Costuming Tips & Free Movies!

I am going to post some psycho women movies as well as some brilliant costume ideas so you can become an evil femme fatale.  You know how I feel about serial killers?  I am going to post some of my favorite costuming ideas for the ladies, yup, for the ladies!!!

I have picked two femme fatale costuming ideas so you can look both pretty and psycho.  I have chosen period ensembles, because its fun to dress as characters from a different era.  Of course, these two historical serial killing chicks really existed.

Belle Gunness - Belle lived in the late 1800's to early 1900's.    I've seen a couple of photos of her and she dressed as a plain women of the day.  She was a woman in her 40's during her murder spree and was well-dressed.  You can "sexyfy" her if you like, but either way, dressing up as Belle is fun!

 A movie about her is in the works, but it appears that its still being made and has been in the works since 2012 since their Kickstarter campaign, in which it appears that they made in excess of $8,000 in support for this film to be created.  I can't wait! 

Belle Gunness (November 11, 1859 – April 28, 1908) was a Norwegian-American serial killer, who resided on a large farm in La Porte, Illinois.  She killed most of her suitors and boyfriends, and her two adopted children, Myrtle and Lucy. She may also have killed both of her husbands and all of her children, on different occasions. Her apparent motives involved collecting life insurance, cash and other valuables, and eliminating witnesses. Reports estimate that she killed between 25 and 40 people over several decades.

Countess Elizabeth Bathory (The Blood Countess) - The Countess was pretty, wealthy, and psycho.  She liked torture, bathing in women's blood, and was a mean, nasty femme fatale, but hey, she was well dressed, so why the hell not wear her in horror cos-play or on Halloween.  Hell, pass out candy as this chick!

To pull off Belle's look, you need a bustle skirt or a long fluffy Victorian skirt or a Victorian styled-dress that a woman in her late thirties to early forties in her class would have worn.  She didn't appear to wear make-up or anything other than Victorian-American dress and a bun on top of her head.

Here are some fabulous finds.  I don't want to post anything too pricy so I won't.  Keep in mind, you can look up lots of these types of period dress online for tutorials so you can make them, but they are cheap enough for most of us to buy (shortcut)!!!

To pull off Elizabeth Bathory, it might be a little easier to find traditional medieval or renaissance period attire so you can look like royalty.  She wore her hair up in a bun-like hairstyle, too, so that's not to difficult.  She appears to have a dark blonde to light brown hair color.  I'll link you to some pre-made costumes below.  It would be very difficult to make a costume for her.

Candy Apple Costumes has a really pretty costume for The Blood Countess or like characters for just under $60.  They come in plus sizes and are around the same price for the larger costumes.

15th Night 'Til Hallo'een - Free Ebola Movie & Killer Costume Tutorial

With the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa that has apparently spread to the United States in a small way, it seems appropriate to share the 1995 film about Ebola, Outbreak.  You can view it by for free or if you wish, you can watch it on HBO Go by clicking here if you are subscribed to HBO Go!

This article (click here) seeks to dispel the differences and myths that seem to have been enforced by the film, Outbreak, about Ebola.  The film is pretty entertaining, anyway, and the virus is not exactly Ebola, anyway.  Its got a different name, (Motaba Virus), but its pretty gosh darn close :).
Isn't it adorable!?
 I think you all know what you are getting for your summer birthdays!!!!

And Yay, Merry Halloween (15 days shy of the holiday), free Outbreak Epidemic Disease Games online is my gift to you, my dear readers.  Now, go forth and infect things (for not real online).
Pandemic I - Create your own custom virus to wipe out the world!

Pandemic II - The sequel to Pandemic I, a little more detailed with a higher difficulty level.

Pandemic - American Swine - In this version, you are trying to negate the virus and save the world instead of trying to create a virus and destroy humanity. 

Pandemic EOM - Extinction of man is a spin-off of Pandemic! The game features brand new game-play and features.

Pandemic III - The long awaited sequel to all the Pandemic games that have existed with new, advanced, and kick-azz features!

Infectionator - World Dominator - Create a successful zombie outbreak that can't we fought off to conquer the world!  

Infectionator II -  The sequel to Infectionator - World Dominator

Ok, he kinda hits the nail on the head.  Anyway, this is a thing...the Ebola costume...

So yeah, there's that.

Anyway, below you can watch the bloody eye make-up tutorial.

That can actually show you how to look like you have an epidemic disease like Ebola
and I shall also post a Silent Hill Nurse Cosplay video!

The bloody eye tutorial is not in English, but just watch her.
She shows you how to get it done!

I don't know how much I agree with the plastic shopping bag being used over your head, but you could probably achieve the same thing with a chunking helmet for hair color or something since it has tons of holes in it.

21st Night Until Halloween - Free Movie, Makeup Tutorial & Goodies!

Tonight, because I have been listening to one of my favorite songs ever, (Little Red Riding Hood), I am going to post a myriad (well, maybe not that many or much) of Werewolf and Little Red Riding Hood themed movies.  Hummm, I could wrap my head around hooking up with a were-person while he was in human form, of course.  Men are very similar to wolves hunting their prey.  Woman are more like vampires.  We want to suck the very life-force out of you, not just devour you, but consume you.  I bet they are like animals in the sack, were-men, that is!  There is something very primal about the werewolf and his pursuit of Red Riding Hood and even a good girl will dig deep to find out the very nature of the beast whether she really wants to know what lies beneath or not.  Would it matter to her if she found out?  You decide.  Hot!

I will post Ginger Snaps (2001) below for you to enjoy!

I'll post the trailer below so you can see if  you want to watch it if you have not yet seen it.  Its fairly decent, unique, and I really dug it!  Its actually ok to watch with your older kids, too, as there is no gratuitous gore or overt sex scenes (implied, but no overt).

I'm also going to post a costume werewolf make-up tutorial. below. There are two parts.
