Those who follow me on IG (@Lhouraii) will know that I haven't been very well these past months. However, I can't miss Halloween! >_<
First of all, I uploaded a short video from Halloween:
The photos don't capture the glitter - I was sooo glittery! You can see it in the video!
When I was getting ready, I pinned my braids up, out of my face - I kind of liked it haha:
But yeah, this was my makeup:
I just noticed that you can see the wire from my bra in that photo! /\ I didn't know it was sticking out until later that night! I hate bras soooooo much! The wire always breaks, and sticks out! It was annoying me all night! I bet people were wondering why I kept prodding my boob when I was trying to push the wire back! >_<
I went light blue. Thanks to 'Jou Ka' for suggesting 'grease paint' to me! In my shironuri blog, I was complaining that my white face paint kept cracking and they suggested grease paint - it's so good! It doesn't crack at all! I'm so happy with it!
For once, I prefer how I look without flash!
Yes, my bedroom is messy - oh well!
For my dress, I just wore a purple dress and painted the rest of my skin light blue.
I love being blue, as most of you will know! Oh and I've thought of a name for the style too! #aoinba - what do you think? It's like Kuronba but blue (aoi). I don't know. I can't really think of what else to call it!:
I also used soooooo much glitter spray! I used silver on my face/body and gold on my hair! My hair looked so yellow though, I don't know why! Maybe it was the gold spray.
It was so windy and dust kept blowing in my eyes!:
Here are my nails:
I will talk more about them near the end of this post.
I also made a purple cloak:
It reminded me a little of Sarah from 'Hocus Pocus'! I really love her! I have watched Hocus Pocus at least 5 times in the past month!
A neighbour was walking past us and offered to take a photo of us both together. However, my dress kept blowing up so I started laughing and pushing it back down. So, I kind of wrecked the photo - the fluffy, pink sock kind of ruins the look! >_<
Neton had a cloak too - I made it for him, I think I did really good with his!
He did his own makeup, he took longer than I did to get ready!
So, we were planning to go out in Bradford, to a few different places, but we saw a poster that our local pub was having a Halloween party, and it spoke to me:
'Fancy Dress Prize'
'A few surprises'
- and some other stuff too, I can't remember.
I would find the poster and put a photo of it, but I don't want to show which pub it is - so many people ask me, but I have experienced stalking all too often, and it's my local pub. Sorry!
So, we went there instead.
I didn't take any photos in there, but I wish I did because there was a pumpkin that looks like it was throwing up and stuff. But yah, I must have been outside or something when the 'few surprises' happened, because I missed them! Oh well! It was still fun. I was tagged in a photo on Facebook, so I'll put that here:
I know what I was looking at in this photo! The girl in white had a really sparkly purse (wallet), and I was admiring the sparkles! Neton laughed when I told him that! If you ever want to distract me, just put something sparkly in front of me! Haha
But yeah, you can't see most of the decorations though, in that photo, so that kind of sucks. I love living in the countryside though - our neighbours are mostly really nice!
Anyhoo, afterwards, we went shopping for alcohol and reduced Halloween items! We were too late though, all the Halloween items had already gone!
I was dancing around Asda, it was pretty funny. But omg - people seemed shocked that I had a blue face - it just shows that, even on Halloween, people will still judge you on your appearance! >_<
Anyway, then we went for a drive in the countryside. We had to stop for petrol, I took some photos of my nails whilst Neton was getting the petrol:
The middle nail was falling off.
Afterwards, we went back home. My makeup stayed on all night!
I love being blue!
So many selfies! >_<
So, earlier that day, I was very annoyed at Neton. Later on, he went out to the shops and when he came back he attacked me with silly string to stop me being mad at him! It was so funny. I got him back too, and then we got Amethyst (photos further down).
Anyway, he got me again when we got back!
My last photo with our Halloween decorations!
We celebrate Halloween all through October (and maybe some of September!). So we did a lot of Halloween activities. I didn't take many photos though.
Anyway, these are the photos from when I attacked Neton with silly string:
Then we got Amethyst:
She didn't even move! >_< She liked playing with the string though! Btw, the mess in that photo /\ is just my nail stuff - it's when I was making the nails. We're still trying to organise the house, so I don't have a nail station in this house yet! But yeah, just trust me, it's looks messier than it was! >_<
Speaking of Amethyst - it was her 1st birthday yesterday (November 1st). Her birthday is actually in August, but we decided to celebrate it nearer Halloween - her being a black cat and all! She had such a good day and loved her gifts! She's so funny. This morning, she was cuddling me and she started licking my elbow for ages! I love our pets!
Oh, and Brodie - my family dog - needs to take a tablet every day now (she's 16). My dad said that he has to struggle with her every day to get her to take the tablet. He has to grab her face, shove the tablet in her mouth and try to get her to swallow it - but she spits it out every time. Anyway, it's always a really big hassle. However, the other day, he said that she was laid in her bed and he walked up to her with her tablet. She looked at him and tilted her head back and then opened her mouth! My dad literally dropped it into her mouth and she swallowed it! >_< I was laughing so much when I found out! That's so funny! I've never known a dog to do anything like that before! >_<
I've seen many Americans saying how awesome Pumpkin Spice Lattes are, so I wanted to try one! We don't have them over here. We don't even have pumpkin puree, so we had to make it ourselves. However, we don't have sugar pumpkins either, so the puree was kind of stringy! In fact, it was just a spiced latte with pumpkin lumps/strings at the bottom of the cup! It wasn't very nice!
Neton got a witch biscuit a while ago, I think they don't understand what 'friendly' means!:
I don't know why they called her 'friendly' at all! Haha
Here are some more photos of the nails, like I mentioned:
I can't find any nails in this length and shape, so I have to make them entirely from acrylic with nail forms. This is the base, without the clear top - that's why they're bumpy.
I really like the base, I feel like they looked better without the decorations!
This is them finished, I remember we were watching 'Nightmare Before Christmas' when I was taking these photos:
I hope you all had a great Halloween! I would love to see what you dressed as! I really like seeing peoples costumes, there's always such variety!
Until next time, bye bye! <3
