Halloween Tag

I've been tagged by The Everyday Goth, whose posts on the fundamentals of goth are a joy to read whether you're new to the scene or if you've been in it since the beginning. (BTW I've got some ASCII art in this post, so it might look funny on some browsers)

THIRTEEN QUESTIONS HALLOWEEN TAG!!!

FAVORITE HALLOWEEN SONG: Well, I don't have a favorite, but I do have songs I absolutely hate: the weirdo retro halloween do-wop spooooky thing. As a teen, I used to work at a costume shop during Halloween, and they played this stuff all day. What was wrong with people in the 50s-60s? There's HOURS and HOURS of this stuff. It's like terrible christmas music for goths, and doesn't even capture the "spirit" of halloween.



WITCH OR VAMPIRE? Vampire, of course. I'm a daeva with blood potency 6, for those of you also playing nWoD.

FAVORITE THING ABOUT HALLOWEEN? It'll forever be the costuming. 

HALLOWEEN PARTY OR SCARY MOVIE MARATHON? Most definitely a party. It's always the best party of the year. I'm also not a fan of scary movies. . . or movies in general. 

SKELETONS OR ZOMBIES: Skeletons, who have no use for my brains.

FAVORITE HALLOWEEN CANDY: Can't go wrong with Snickers

FAVORITE HALLOWEEN MOVIE: Beetlejuice

FAVORITE HALLOWEEN COSTUME: I love homemade costumes and classic costumes like demons, witches, vampires, and ghosts. My favorite one of mine would still be the demon one I posted here a hundred times before

FAVORITE HALLOWEEN STORE: Halloween Adventure, in NYC. This is the most amazing costume store I've ever seen, and it's open all year round! It's next to a goth clothing store, so they know their audience. Forget the pop-up halloween stores. This one is aweeesome.

JACK-O-LANTERNS, YES OR NO? I haven't personally carved one, but I do love how they look.

BATS OR BLACK CATS? Black cats. 

IS HALLOWEEN YOUR FAVORITE HOLIDAY? Of course! We've got so few secular holidays that are just about having fun (I think this is the only one)

PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE OR HOT CHOCOLATE? Hot chocolate's for winter! 

And 5 bloggers to tag, who have probably already been tagged and who may not celebrate halloween.

  3. Hooray for classic costumes! Pop culture costumes too often win the contests, and I'm always a little disappointed. People don't dress as a vampire, they dress as a specific vampire character from a movie. It's like tracing a picture instead of drawing your own. It takes out some of the creativity!
