My Past Halloween Costumes!

HAPPY HALLOWEEEENNNN!

I thought I’d celebrate this spooky occasion with a selection of photographs from over the years of me and my gruesome Halloween outfits!  Halloween has got to be one of my favourite times of the year – I LOVE dressing up and I’m obsessed with all things scary (check out my ghost photography here).

Bat Girl – HOW CUTE WAS I?!!!  Typical little bat girl, Mum drew my face paint on.  I can’t find any photographs but I remember also being a little cat when I was little too.

Possessed Girl – This was a costume mix between the girl from The Exorcist and Mischa Barton’s character in Sixth Sense.  Looking back at these photographs FREAK me out.  This was a few years before I developed my emetophobia (fear of vomit) – I would NEVER dress up like this again!  This was at a Buffy the Vampire Slayer Convention (oLdSkOol) on All Hallows Eve.  I popped a red tint in my hair and my mum created the 'sick’ with flour and water mixed together.  Ew ew ew ew ew.

Marilyn Monroe – I loved this outfit and will do it again soon (I forgot to add Marilyn’s beauty spot – duh!).  Me and my girls went to Liquid in good old Romford town and caused havoc!

Vampire – 2009 saw me dig out my cobweb dress and play around with a dribble of blood, whilst dressing up as a vampire.  I went out late that night to The Coronet in Elephant & Castle with my school friends for a dance!  We ended the night covered in UV Gel. messy.

Ghost Hunter – Last year I had one of THE best Halloweens I have ever had and I didn’t even dress up!  On Halloween morning I travelled down to Pluckley – England’s Most Haunted Village, with my Mum & Dad (well, I wasn’t going to go ghost hunting alone!).  We spent the day and night ghost hunting with my camera, following a ‘ghost map’ to spots in the village where ghosts have been sighted.  It was very scary; it got dark whilst we were in the ‘screaming woods’ and we also stayed the night in a haunted hotel. 
Photos below are of me and my night vision camera having a hearty shandy to keep me going in a haunted pub!

(Bonus photograph!) 2010 – Earlier in 2010 I dressed up a little ghoulish for a collaborative photo shoot with some friends.  It was hilarious walking around South London dressed up like this but the photographs came out perfectly!

This post has made me really laugh, its so funny to look back on a specific day and see what you were doing!  This year I really want to dress up, but I have no where to go!  I’m probably going to see a scary film at the cinema, no reason why I can’t dress up, huh! 

What’s been your favourite Halloween Costume to dress up as?  What are you doing tonight?!
