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
