The best thing about Halloween is the 1st of November when all of the cute halloween stuff like drinks glasses with spooky ghosts on is discounted.
anyone already planning what they're dress up as?
I am from Brazil and we don't really celebrate Halloween as people from the US do, we usually have some parties with dress up themes, but it isn't something as planned as american Halloween parties.
However, I am planning to do a small thing either for myself or with a small group of friends, like 4. I just bought this silly kigurumi for the occasion, and we are planning to decorate my friend's house a bit and buy some candy (we don't have themed halloween candy here, unfortunately, so it would be like some m&m's,peanut candy, gummy worms), put on some scary movies/videos, tell scary shit and order a pizza, probably.
I was also planning on doing Veronica Sawyer, the version from the Heathers Musical. But I probably wouldn't have a place to wear it, so I am not so sure, yet.
Who else has no plans for Halloween?
>crystal.cafe movie night for the ones that were left behind pls admin
Movie night sounds good. I am just hoping to avoid having to hand out candy this year. Last year, all we got were teenagers who didn't even dress up.
Is it just me or is Halloween not as big as it used to be? Even in the US. It keeps happening with all of the big holidays. :/
We don't celebrate here, or really acknowledge it - except the retarded "I'm a real Christian, I don't celebrate Halloween!" posts on Facebook and a few "parties" which aren't even really Halloween themed, no decoration or anything.
But I'm really looking forward to the in-game events, they're always a ton of fun <3
Since none of the shops here offer Halloween decoration - are there any sites where one could get some of the stuff? Decorative skulls, maybe bat stickers or something, etc.?
I was wondering this for a while myself, but I considered that it might just be that, due to the fact that you and your friend circle have grown up and nobody really talks or posts about Halloween excitedly anymore, maybe you're just not getting the same level of exposure to it as you used to?
Maybe you just… grew up?
I know that when I was a kid, I would do countdowns for Christmas and almost die of happiness when the day finally came. Now that I am an adult, it's not uncommon for me to be reminded that's Christmas' Eve lmao
At first I thought "Holidays are not like before", but than I noticed that my nephews get the same excitement and joy around Christmas, so maybe you just grew up and it's not as fun anymore.
Also what >>120
said. I guess unless you live on a rich suburb, most people won't have the time or money to decorate their houses or throw parties? Just a thought.
Same in my country, anon.
I've thought the same thing, that no one celebrates it like before, but like others have pointed out maybe we're just growing up…sigh
I'll dump halloween decoration tutorials as I find them
I have no doubt that that's partially the case, but I feel like back then there were also more movies, commercials etc about it too - kind of why I asked, but maybe I'm not noticing it as much for the same reason.
I can definitely say that in my old neighborhood, there used to be lots more halloween decorations and trick or treaters. These days it's lucky if a couple of houses have jack-o-lanterns on their porch.
In my case, my area gentrified a lot, and most of the people who used to live there had to move out, but my mom also says she thinks it changed really quickly around 9/11, interestingly enough.
>>113>favorite things about Halloween
I love scaring people. I like the feeling of being able to not be myself and be a monster and scare people. It's really a thrill.>costume ideas
I wanted to be a werewolf since I'm a clown at my job.>party planning
No parties, I work every good night.>music and movies
Blood Moon Rising and that new Michael Jackson Halloween CD with a few random horror movies mixed in>decor inspiration
No inspiration. My acting profession scored me a job as a monster and I love it. I scare people constantly
Hope you're fucking READY girls
Usually I'm excited for Halloween, but this month I feel really… unmotivated I guess? Like I'm excited for the concept of Halloween but I don't have anything planned out lol, and I don't really have the motivation to figure it all out. Since I'll most likely be busy the day of Halloween I'm not even sure if I'll get to really celebrate/if I should wear a costume. And the weekend before Halloween I'll most likely be going to a music festival so that kinda rules out the idea of any Halloween party.
I guess I'm excited for the more "material concepts" of Halloween, such as candy, decorating, pumpkin carving, and Halloween movies. But other than that I feel like there's not gonna be much else involved celebration wise (ex: partying, dressing up, going out with friends, etc). I guess I keep comparing this years Halloween with last years, which was pretty fun.
Thinking of going as "coco-cola" for halloween cause I have a shirt with the logo and I don't feel like a lot of spending money. Any ideas what I can pair it with? This is what I was thinking:
a) jeans skirt
b) red skirt (matches color of shirt)
c) white skirt
a) black tights & black open shoes or heels
b) white leggings with some sort of shoes ?(idk)
c) white thigh highs
d) those high white boots (something like pic attached)
any and all advice/ideas would be great! thanks :)
I'm not great with fashion so I won't try to give input on individual items but I'm googling Coca-Cola mascots and I hope this helps.
I think something cute and sloppy like this would do the trick. Cola runs in my veins. Good choice Anon <3
Definitely these shoes anon! I'm in love with these shoes. If it was societally acceptable I would buy these and wear them every second of every day.
Can we have more /x/ discussion threads? I would love for the thread links in OP to be more active. I'll make a true crime thread if anyone is interested.

The weather, the Spirit Halloween store, seeing people dress up, just everything about this time!>>114> the 1st of November when all of the cute halloween stuff like drinks glasses with spooky ghosts on is discounted.
I wanted to dress up as The Huntress aka Anna from Dead By Deadlight, but I don’t think that’ll be happening due to me being broke (lol).
My aunt is actually having a party at her house so I’ll be going to that for Halloween. I love her because she’s really passionate about the holidays so her house is always decorated.
>music and movies
I’ve been playing Halloween music, especially the Nightmare Revisited album all month long. I’ve been watching horror movies and anime too.
Due to an incident I've been home the whole day so no party for me. Anyway I hope everyone else is having a nice Halloween.
I used to watch The Crow on VHS in my small blue TV but now I'm far from home and I can't. Remember to celebrate Devil's Night as well!
