The Halloween Tag

Well happy Halloween folks, the spooky day is finally upon us!

So I was tagged by the lovely Amy from Scariel’s Grotto to do this tag, and you can read her original post here! Well here we go..

What is your favourite Halloween movie?

I must admit I’m fairly pathetic when it comes to any scary movies, but I will admit Scream is a slight guilty pleasure of mine, if you can call it a Halloween film. Oh, and I loved The Little Vampire as a kid, must watch that again to see if its still any good..

If you were in a horror movie, how far would you get?

I think this depends quite a lot on the movie.. I’m really not good with anything too scary, but I’m also really feisty so could definitely defend myself pretty well.

What is your favourite memory of Halloween?

It might seem silly, but Trick or Treating with my girlfriends when we were like 14? Our costumes were fairly weak and it was a totally silly night, but it was pretty great.

Your best/worst Halloween costume?

I spent the majority of Halloweens as a kid dressing as a cat because I didn’t want to be a witch, and I recall one year I had a full on onesie-type costume to go to a friends party, and her kid sister had the same one which was hideously embarrassing, even if I was only about 10 at the time! Last year I made my own Maleficent horns, which I wore with a black starry playsuit and dark lipstick which I loved, even if it was just to stay at home with a broken wrist!

How do you get into the Halloween spirit?

Carving pumpkins, 100%

Favourite Halloween decorations?

As a kid my sister usually had Halloween themed birthday parties, and I remember we used to have this huge spider on our ceiling, which I’m fairly certain was made of bin bags but it was cool all the same. Oh, and fake cobwebs!

Name one unusual thing that you’re afraid of

Eels. Cannot cope.

Vampires or Zombies?

I think I’d rather be faced with a vampire than a zombie in a scary situation, because vampires are far more civilised.

Werewolves or Ghosts?

Ghosts I think, I like to believe they’re all like Casper

Creepy dolls or creepy clowns?

Tough one.. I think dolls, cos at least they’re inanimate.

Do you believe in ghosts?

I used to watch a lot of Ghost Hunters, the tv show, and some of the stuff they picked up seemed really conclusive, but I’m still not 100% sold.. I do think the energy of a person can hang around for a little while though.

So that’s me! If you fancy giving the same questions a go, feel free, and drop me a comment so I can check it out!

Now, go have a spooky-good day!
