Hallotober Tag

Recently, I was tagged by One Book More for this tag. Considering that Halloween is happening in a few days, I decided to do it.

Have you ever been in a haunted house, or would you ever go? Does it count if I went into a haunted house at Gardner Webb? Obviously, it isn’t exactly what you think of when it comes to a haunted house.

What is your favorite spooky book? Not exactly. However, did read some books with some scary elements. I love Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Shades of Magic, and His Dark Materials. So that is the closest I got to spooky- I don’t like horror books.

What is your favorite thing about October? Well, it depends. If I actually make it the mountains in October, I love the color of the leaves.

Are you a big celebrator of Halloween? Not so much anymore, but did love Halloween when I was younger. Here were some of my costumes- polar bear and spider witch. Yes, there were two more, which I actually made- that is when I went as an artist and smurfette. Now, the shirt I used for the being an artist became my paint shirt.

What’s your favorite horror movie? I already said I don’t like horror movies, and in addition, don’t like too creepy. The closet I probably got was through Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings.

Would you rather a cozy night in watching horrors or a big night out in a costume? Big night out in a costume. I actually did this recently- that was back in 2017, which two suitemates and I dressed up for dinner. 2017 was when I dressed up as Eponine- went that route due to already having the supplies thanks to an earlier Les Mis party that same year. Literally, I was in costume from like 3-10. I actually went to The Gathering (student-led worship service) in costume, and afterwards, there was a bonfire.

Which has been your most favorite costume to date? This is tough- either Smurfette, Artist or Eponine. I actually made all of these costumes- with Artist, I literally splattered paint on a men’s bottom up white shirt. As for Eponine, I was able to find all the pieces in just one trip- I was able to find a hat, skirt, white top, and belt. As for the “dirt”, luckily I took Stage Makeup in 2016, and in that kit, I find brown shadow, which I used.

Bobbing for apples or pin the hate on the witch? Honestly have idea. Octoberfest reminds me of this question- at Gardner Webb, they host a kid’s festival. Each club has a theme, and usually there are some games. During Octoberfest, I was a blue alien, Violet from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Rizzo.

How do you celebrate Halloween? Usually, it is just trick or treating. However with GWU, things were different- Octoberfest and the time when my suitemates and I dressed up.

What is your least favorite horror? Seriously, already said I don’t like horror.

Do you have a favorite trick or treating memory? No

What is your favorite part about Halloween? Most likely, the trick or treating. There were only a few exceptions- GWU’s Octoberfest.

What is your favorite thing about Halloween? A combo of trick or treating and dressing up

Scary costume or silly costume? Silly. However, not all my costumes were silly- but were not scary.

Since Halloween is around the corner, I tag everyone

  1. This is an interesting tag! I’ll just go through and answer the questions really quick!
    1) I’ve never, as far as I can remember, been in a haunted house. It’s just not really the sort of thing I think I’d really enjoy!
    2) Probably The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. It’s not really a horror novel, but it is spooky and certainly befitting of the season! Haha, I really wanted to give it a reread before Halloween this year, but it didn’t work out!
    3) I love the changing colors of the leaves, and I also am a huge fan of apple cider which is something I generally get to drink in October! I also like that the weather starts to cool down!
    4) I enjoy dressing up for Halloween when I have the occasion to do so, but I don’t really go all out for it with decorations and stuff like that. I enjoy taking my younger cousins trick-or-treating, but we didn’t do that this year.
    5) I don’t generally like horror movies. The closest thing to a horror movie that I’ll watch is Sweeney Todd, most of the time. Occasionally, friends will want to watch horror movies so I’ll watch with them, but I never wind up loving them very much or feeling like watching them on my own. Just not my thing!
    6) I loved dressing up as Enjolras a few years ago. Probably my best costume!
    7) I’ve never done either of these things, actually!
    8) I’ll usually get dressed up for Halloween in some kind of costume, and maybe take my younger cousins trick-or-treating if I can! But other than that, not much! I might carve pumpkins with my family, but that’s really about it!
    9) I really don’t have a good answer for this, since I’m not much of a horror movie viewer.
    10) Not sure!
    11) I particularly like dressing up in costumes. It’s always been something I enjoyed, so it’s nice to have some sort of excuse to do it even now that I’m older.
    12) A good mix of both! I generally just like to dress up as characters I like! Sometimes those are more on the spooky end, but I never go full scary with them!
