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).
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.
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!
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?!
