Inspiration Instants: The Bride of Frankenstein

If I haven’t said it before, I’ll say it again. I LOVE costuming. Wearing costumes, making costumes…I don’t know what it is, but I love the feeling of making something come to life through your own hands from the book or screen that inspired you.

Last year, I made the Bride of Frankenstein, inspired by the classic 1935 film’s Elsa Lanchester depiction of the Monster’s bride. Although not perfect to the quality I wanted it (more flow-y, wider base, etc. etc.), it was a big enough hit for myself. Particularly the mastering of the hair.

Inspiration Instants: Halloween Treats

I’d have to say of all the things I tried and did last year for the Halloween season, my favorite was making candy apples.

Thanks to pinterest, I want to try my hand at a whole slew of additional goodies. I love the idea of Halloween foodies that double as decoration. Who wouldn’t? Your guests can appreciate them as decor and tasty treats.

Inspiration Instants: Ghosts in your Housewares

Last year, one of my favorite purchases was this adorable fridge ghost that Hallmark was selling. I loved it so much, I bought one for my mom as well. I think he stayed in my fridge until December, he was such a hoot. It was really cute. He was triggered by light, so every time you opened the fridge, he would say a phrase or sing a song.

Inspiration Instants: Elviras of Events Past

I think if I could only cosplay one costume for the rest of my life, it would be Elvira. I adore that costume and I love that every time I wear it, not only is it a huge hit, I’m constantly improving it.

Inspiration Instants: Halloween in the Movies

Didn’t post on Friday because I was busy with tying up the loose ends with my car. But I’m back today with another topic of favor, and one that hasn’t been touched since the “reset” of the blog.

I’ve been looking forward to the oncoming slot of new movies coming out just because a lot of the ones I’ve been interested in seeing follow in the footsteps of having a Halloweenie theme or at least focus on creatures that you would associate with Halloween.

This month of June has one film both Erick and I have been greatly looking forward to.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Despite it’s somewhat ridiculous plot, we are very interested in seeing this. It looks fun. What more of an excuse do you need? I think people take movies too seriously and forget that they’re meant for entertainment. This movie, I think, will really fall into this category. Plus, by Tim Burton. 🙂 I liked Dark Shadows, so looking forward to how enjoyable this one will be.
