I was tagged by the incredible Jenna over at J.K. I’m Exploring to do a fun Halloween tag and I couldn’t pass it up. Check out her blog if you don’t already follow because she puts out some amazing content. This tag was created by Jordanne from The Life of A Glasgow Girl (the header image from hers).
An iconic item that appears in horror movies is a Ouija Board, and since I’ve been doing classical horror movies this year I thought I would do my own version of this. If you don’t know what an Ouija board is, it’s a way of communicating with spirits. Though I would not suggest doing this as you never know what you are inviting into your home or where you’re at.
The Exorcist is one of those films where the horror just doesn’t hold up over time. Or maybe we’re just desensitized to horror and gore these days from the news and internet that it no longer holds the same freight level it used to. When this film first came out, people were vomiting, fleeing the theater and their were priests there for the movie-goers. Since I’m on a bit of a classic horror movie recreation for this Halloween, I had to attempt Regan from The Exorcist.
The other night I actually left my house to be “social” by that I mean I hung out with my mom and sister by going to the Minnesota Zoo for the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular. This is the second year they have done this event, so I didn’t know what to inspect since I didn’t go last year and held off on looking up any information. This way I could get the full experience. Apparently there were 5,000 illuminated pumpkins all with different sizes, shapes, and faces. It was incredible!
I was really inspired by this look James Charles and Vanessa Davis did for the “launch” of the Morphe x James Charles mini palette. Which is basically the same palette just smaller. I got the original palette when it launched, moved and had to part ways with it due to size, then regretted that and my sister repurchased it for me as a moving in present (my sister comes up with a million reasons to get me makeup, I generally don’t ask her to but if I mention a palette looks cool and I can’t afford it, suddenly she surprises me with it. She’s the best, I love her to death). However, I recently got the Norvina Collection Volumes 1-3 and decided to use those instead to create my own version of this look.
Haven’t done one of these in a while on the blog, but I had some spare time and it’s Spooky Season, so next up in my Classic Horror Makeup Series is Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street. Complete with body painted outfit and tin foil blade fingers since I’m on a budget.
