Halloween 2015 + Video!

I hope you all had a fantastic Halloween!

I actually wasn't feeling my best, so I didn't put much effort into my costume. I did actually make some paper mache horns and ears - they took a while to make! But I didn't end up wearing them!

This is what they look like:
The big things are the horns and the smaller things are the ears. Obviously, they go on pointing towards the back of the head, not pointing up like that.

I painted the headband yellow, so it wouldn't show as easily through my hair.

I painted the tips of the horns with a pink - purple - blue gradient:
There were gems all over the horns and on part of the ears. I put a chain on the ears too:
Then I covered them in glitter!

I hope I get some use out of them, somehow! Haha

So, this year I went as blue (again!). I used a white base and then put light blue over that.
^ That pink thing in the lower-left is my phone dangly! It always photobombs! >_<

I did Neton's makeup! I wanted to make him like a Twilight vampire (but gothic) - but he wanted to look more interesting. So, I did a lighter base and then used green shades for contour. I used purple for detailing and then smoky black eyeliner. Of course, I completely covered him in glitter too! He was so sparkly! >_<

By the time we took this photo, much of the makeup had come off though!:
I legit just wore the same as last year:
I just wasn't as in to Halloween this year, because I wasn't well. Which sucks so much because I LOVE Halloween! I wait for it all year.

I didn't even put in any extensions (or 'expansions', since they are much shorter than my real hair):
But yah. We decided to go to a pub in Haworth, for a change. They were having a Halloween party.

So many people kept talking to us all night - which was great, because I love meeting new people. 

But I have a small voice, and I find it difficult to speak loudly. Everyone was literally just talking over one another ALL THE TIME! Every time I talked to someone, that person would cut me off to say something. I legit felt like we were a bunch of chimps all screeching over one another! But everyone was drunk so what would I expect? Haha >_< It was still fun, and they were nice.

Oh and there was this one guy who came over and sat next to me and he was just constantly talking about how he was better than everyone else. His opener was "Do you listen to *some 60's band*?" I said I'd not heard of them. So he stood up, annoyed, and said "Oh, I looked over here thinking 'oh hey, those two look cool' but you're not cool. I bet you listen to bassline." Then he sat back down.


I finally wore some nails I made like 2 Halloweens ago!:
So, yeah... we left early!

We went into the countryside to go ghost spotting!
We filmed my very first 'Storytime' video (which is at the end of this post):
There are also some clips from Halloween at the end of the video (and also on Vine).

In one of the clips, you can see something scary that happened!

Basically, in that part of the countryside about 90% of the people are really sketchy. It's rare to see anyone, especially at night. But we've seen drug dealers, car thieves (who crashed the car right in front of us) and ... yeah, etc.

We learned a long time ago that if we see a car, we will get back in our car and drive off if they stop.

So, we saw one car all night. When we saw it coming, we got back in the car, prepared to drive off. However, the car passed us. So we got back out. Neton switched on the camera and it was at that point that we noticed the car reversing back down towards us! Neton said "Oh my god." then switched the camera off and said "Lolly, get back in the car!" We ran back in the car and drove off! >_< You can see the clip in the video! I think it's at about 7:04 minutes in. You can see the cars red lights reversing back down the road!

Oh and a funny thing that happened:

We were just dancing around and stuff and Neton said he saw something white move. I stopped dancing around and walked over to where he was. We were both staring into the black, foggy night for a moment. Then I said "What was it?" 

He said "It was either a person... or a duck" Hahaha >_< wtf?

But we weren't laughing at the time, because it was creepy. Anyway, after he said that the white thing moved again. We both ran back to the car and drove off! 

That's pretty much how our trips to the countryside go! We stay in one place for a while and then something creeps us out so we drive to a different spot! >_<

Anyhoo, my makeup lasted pretty well:
How was your Halloween? What did you dress as?

Here is the video I mentioned:

Please give it a thumbs up, comment and share if you like it! 

Until next time, bye bye! <3

Harry Potter Tour, TAG and footage.


I did it again. Sorry that I always vanish for such long periods of time! >_<

Anyway, a while ago we went to the Harry Potter studios for the second time, it was so much fun!

There will be more photos uploaded to Facebook, including photos of the sets/castle and stuff.

So, first I'll show how I did my makeup that day:
And my hair, the same as ever!:
I did my eyes green and purple. I did the green for Slytherin and the purple just to contrast it:
My nails were so much better than last time. I even had Dumbledore on there!:
I put my two least favourite houses on the thumbs because thumb nails aren't really in many photos. Oh btw, yes my hands look really dry. I think it's the hand wash I was using! >_<
I also did a Marauders map! It looks as if it opens up when you position the fingers like this:
In fact, I think I have a Vine of it, I'll go check...

...Yep! Found it!:

Btw, I post quite a lot of Vines most of the time, granted that a lot are of Amethyst and Luna! >_< Haha

One last photo of the nails:
So yeah, we listened to the Harry Potter soundtrack while we were driving there! We drove down to London and stayed in a nearby hotel. Which had a pretty good bar!

We also listened to the soundtrack on the way to the HP studio. There are Vines of that too. 

Oh, actually, I'll include a video at the end. We did a Harry Potter Tag when we got back and I put a lot of footage from our trip at the end of the tag. So if you just want to see the footage just skip past the tag questions and it will be there at the end! Haha >_<

In the car:

Now I'll just post some photos from walking around the studio!:
Mirror of Erised:
Dumbledore's office:
My Time Turner next to the real one!:
In Snape's potion class:
Falling onto the tracks!:
It's so funny because those two girls behind me asked me to take their photo for them and they passed me a disposable camera! :O

I didn't even know they still existed! Like, there are still places that develop film? I want to get one! >_<

I hope I took the photo ok though, because there was no screen - I just had to point it and click.

Oh, and I said something soooo fucking stupid! >_< I said, "How much memory do they have?"

!!!!>_< >_< >_< >_<!!!!

I was told they don't have memory, they have a certain number of pictures you can take or something. I should have known that! I used these as a child!

Anyway, we went inside the train!:
There were a lot of new things there that weren't there when we first went.
We stopped for a Butterbeer break:
We went to take photos next to the bus but I couldn't get a good one! My dress kept blowing up!

This one... what even is my face here?! I have such a good ability at pulling bizarre faces:
Knocking on the Dursley's door!:
With Buckbeak!:
Running through the ministry!:
Looking at wands:
Laughing for a reason I cannot remember, in front of the castle!:
On the train! Omg, this was so much fun! I filmed it - it's in the video at the end! This is actually a photo of me filming it ha:
Filming Neton!:
The good news is - I didn't wear high heels this time. So I could walk around without been (being or been?) in pain! Can someone finally teach me the difference between 'being' and 'been', please? It's the one thing I can't grasp in the English language! 

The bad news is - I'm so short. Therefore, much of the time I spent not being able to see things because tall (or average height) people were in front of me! >_<:
I look in deep thought:
In the Great Hall!:
So yeah, we had another amazing time there! We plan on going back again at some point! 

Neton bought me a Slytherin cushion!:

When we got back to the hotel we got drunk at the bar and then took a bunch of weird photos. I'll include one here:
Then we got ready for bed and looked through a bunch of leaflets, trying to decide what to do on the next day:
Here is the video I mentioned earlier:

The tag isn't very good, but there's a bunch of footage from our trip at the end! I'd love to share it with you, since we had such a great time!

Wow, this was really nice, I haven't blogged in ages! It's nice to finally do it again! 

I have a lot I want to blog about, I'm obsessed with gaming right now, I'd love to do a blog about that - but I'll try and keep it to a minimum since I know that bores a lot of people! >_<

Until next time, bye bye! <3
