Hello to all my American friends. I hope everyone had an absolutely wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. This time last year I was in Dublin so I missed out on it and this year I had a lot to be thankful for this year!
Good morning everyone. Happy November 1st. I hope you all had a fun and fabulously spooky Halloween. What did you do to celebrate? Did you get dressed up? Leave your comments below. I’d love to know everyone’s traditions for my favorite holiday, my favorite season, and my favorite time of the year.
I’m so excited that in two day, Halloween will be here. I’m a natural witch like my sister Suzy Owen. In three days it will be Halloween and I can’t wait. My husband and I have a list of our scary, spooky, and violent Halloween films are already to go for Halloween night! I’ll post the vids we watch on my witch’s New Year aka Samhain! I can’t wait for my favorite holiday!
I couldn’t resist the urge to post yet another picture of my heavy metal sister Rhonda Burnett. As a new ritual, I should put a new makeup picture of her every week. Hehehe. The reason for posting about her again, not that I need one, is because of her incredible makeup look that turned herself into Maleficent. She looks absolutely stunning and if we lived closer I know we’d be doing our makeup together almost daily.
Enjoy another one of Rhonda’s wonderful makeup looks. I’m thinking of attempting this makeup job in the future. We shall see.
I’ve been enjoying doing my spooky October posts and when my gal Sarah Mushenheim (lifewithlilred) asked to do a Halloween collaboration post, I was all too happy. Anything that has to do with Halloween makes me happy. Stay tuned for Sarah’s Halloween post coming soon as well.
The second photoshoot I did after my “Mrs. Freddy Krueger” was more of a “Spooky Sex Kitten” shoot with my custom-made vinyl cork screw boots, a black criss cross mini dress, and my sexy “bedroom wave” wig, (which by the way, I loved how I looked and wished my hair actually looked like that especially with that particular hair cut. We rotated taking both color and black and white/monochrome photographs. With my hair style and the dark makeup, I almost felt like a French or silent movie actress. I was felt very confident shooting yesterday which made it that more fun.
Since I wasn’t doing a typical Halloween shoot where you just dress up in any costume and stand there, I came up with the idea to utilize my Halloween decorations and props in each photo. I thought the juxtaposition would look really cool and give the pictures a spooky and edgy but beautiful look. Here is my GOTHIC HALLOWEEN BEAUTY set. Hope you enjoy my photos and post and comment down below about what some of your favorite costumes have been.
This past Sunday, I did a photo shoot inspired by my favorite horror movie character, Freddy Krueger. If you’ve known me for awhile and/or followed my site here, you already know how much I love Robert Engund aka Freddy Krueger and that I have one of the autographed gloves from the movie series, and that I’ve dressed up like him and done shoots inspired by him many times. This Freddy Krueger shoot however was different.
This shoot is a collaboration with my good friend Haley Murin. If you don’t remember, Haley is one of the owners and artists of Street Trash Art along with her talented fiance’ Dustin Tyler that made by amazing Nightmare on Elm Street hoodie that I rocked in San Francisco. We traded Freddy hoodies. Haley and I don’t live close which is really unfortunate but I believe we are definitely psychically linked because we both happened to acquire the exact same pair of Nightmare on Elm Street socks. I thought that it was funny and cool that we have such similar taste that I thought taking photos of us in our Freddy gear would be a cool and fun idea…. and I was right.
I donned a black and burgundy wig and did a black glittery smoky eye look topped with my new black and orange glitter lipstick. I also had my collectible Freddy Krueger bronze mold also from the movie as a prop to show off. The weather is started to finally cool down by me so taking hoodie photos with my matching knee socks outside without sweating to death was really nice.
I really enjoyed doing this shoot and I can’t wait to see Haley’s pictures which I will post side by side soon. She is such a sweet and cool person and I’m very glad I met and have become friends with her.
Hope you enjoy my photos. Let me know below. Who are your favorite horror characters? What are your favorite horror films?
