It is almost that time of year!!!!! Personally, it is my favorite holiday. Especially trick-or-treating. My BFF and I did it for so long, we drove ourselves to the individual houses, hahaha! Honestly, I think I was 22 the last time I went trick-or-treating, and the last “kid” I could “steal” was a 16 year old!! The looks that I received that year….
I also love the decorations. If you have read any of my Funky posts, then you know why. Just take a look at my movie lists, hahaha! Elvira, vampires, werewolves, aliens…..it has been “my thing” for as long as I can remember. Not to mention that quite a few of my family members were (most have passed away) tattooed, into rock music, and rode Harleys–skulls, roses, spiders, the Grateful Dead paraphernalia…it’s kind of inherent to that subculture. Point being, I grew up with those things being a part of my everyday, not just something to be brought out once a year.
But my favorite thing about Halloween? DRESSING UP!!!! Costumes, jewelry, makeup….using the entire month as an excuse to rock some sweet makeup and my favorite earrings! (FYI, my favorite of the favs include a rather substantial collection of skeleton earrings!!! I even found some skeleton keychains of which I turned into earrings, to be available soon at our etsy shop!!! www.etsy.com/shop/FunkyLollipop ).
As soon as October commences, I will offer some everyday Halloween makeup tutorials, but until then, here are some of last year’s pics!!!
**Also, like a lot of people, I went to the internet to find inspiration. So I will include some of those pics as well!!**
