Happy Halloween!








1.) The mirror outside my dorm hall bathroom is evidently excellent for outfit snaps. I will endeavor to use it for this person from now on!

2.) I sincerely thought I'd be one of few people on campus in costume. I was delightfully mistaken.

3.) My goofy hair color is growing on me. I'm sure it'll fade out by the end of the week, but that's okay too!

4.) Happy Halloween!

Oh yeah!

Is anyone else participating in the Ouija Experiment tonight? I so totally am!

Halloween Weekend

I had a pretty good weekend. On Saturday I bleached out my hair. We watched Corpse Bride and Pumpkin Head, and had a ton of cute Halloween foods and snacks. I took a bunch of pictures of my mom's Halloween decorations too.














Mummy hot dogs, Mummy pizzas, Swamp Creature mac-n-cheese, Halloween cupcakes, and Spider treats. So yummy! 









Happy Halloween!

Purple Dye Round 1 and 2



The first round of purple dye didn't turn out that well. I used A LOT and most of it still washed out. I was pretty disappointed so Chris and I ventured back up to Walmart and bought another box. I tried again, this time focusing more of the dye onto the back of my hair...where it was still pretty blonde.


The result:




Well....the top is purple. The rest....not so much. Granted, it's darker than it was but a lot of the dye still washed out. Either it's crap dye or my hair just doesn't like it. Because there's still a lot of blonde on the bottom parts of my hair.


It stained nicely on my skin though! ^_^ I have some lovely purple patches on my ears and the back of my neck. Charming, eh?


I think next time I pick a crazy color like this - I'll use Manic Panic or Punky Color. I hear better things about them anyways.

From red to ....orange or yellow?

First things first:




Bleached my hair this morning. It turned out MUCH lighter than I'd anticipated, which made me quite happy. It looks really vibrant and bright orange/yellow. You should have seen the look on my mom's face once I rinsed out the bleach and dried my hair. It was amazing. ^_^


This is my mess: old towel, shower cap, gloves, vaseline, etc.



Mom made cupcakes today too and we decorated them with Halloween sprinkles. This weekend is gonna be so amazing. ^_^

TGIF (Halloween Readiness)

First off, I'm SO GLAD IT'S FRIDAY! I have one more class at 1 pm in which I take a test (don't worry, I'm studying for it!) and then I'm prepared to high-tail it out of here as soon as Chris gets off work. ^_^

To amuse you, my silent but wonderful readers, I'll share some photos of my meager dorm room Halloween decor.





Yeah, that's my new toaster oven. I love it!

As you can see, I didn't put up too much. Perhaps next year when I accumulate more decor of my own it'll look spookier. Still, the little touches here and there add some festive glee to the season. 

I also have something much coveted by many Halloween cereal lovers and no, it's not one of the seasonal Count Chocula variations. 


It really does turn milk green! It's so awesome and tastes mostly like regular Cap'n Crunch.

As I'm bleaching my hair out tomorrow and prepping to dye it purple, I figured I would take one last photo of my current hair color (which has mostly faded back to it's natural shade) just so you guys can make some comparisons and then ooh and aah over how much better I look with unnaturally tinted hair. ^_^


So many people seem to get upset when I talk about dying my hair. I don't understand it, really. It's just hair. It's not like it'll be purple (or black or green) forever. I know red hair is so charming and precious and all that, but sometimes I need a change. If it was on your head, you'd understand.

Oh right....I have things to do. I can't sit here and blog all day. I'd love to really, but I have a voicemail to check and then a test to study for. Wish me luck and enjoy your weekend!

Goth or Not Quizzes

I should really be studying for my exam tomorrow, but I'm having way too much fun with these silly Goth quizzes over on Quizilla. It's amazing how many hours one can waste on stuff like this hmm?

1)

Your Result

You love elegance. And elegance, to you, is dark, beautiful clothing, music, and lifestyles. Heaven to you is the night, with only a candle to light your way. You love beautiful, complex dresses or shirts that are expensive, but well worth it. You are dark elegance in every manner. You hold your chin up high, and sneer at those stupid punk and rocker-goths, who imitate the styles they last saw Marilyn Manson wearing. You are better than them.
Beauty is your bible, elegance your religion. And you remember that, always.

I'd like to state right now though that I have nothing against punks and other rocker types. I'm quite fond of some of Manson's tunes and looks as well. It's just...not really my style. ^_^ Though I do love me some Sex Pistols every now and then.

2)

Your Result

You are a true goth! you dont like people to call you a goth, you are just individual. you hate preps and think they should die! well its true.
Bahahahahaa! I don't care if people call me Goth. I call myself a Goth, among other things. I don't hate preps, in fact, some of my closest friends over the years have been people who prefer to study hard and get good grades. I'm treating the word "prep" here in it's original context, as a member of a prep school or someone who is very studious. If we're referring to those blonde bimbos who like pink and girly things...well I don't have a problem with that either. ^_^

3)

Your Result

you're not a goth and you're not a pink loving person...good on ya

Oh yes, because I'm not completely obsessed with death, sitting in dark rooms writing bad poetry, and moshing around to heavy metal, I'm not a real Goth. Isn't that delightful? ^_^

4)

Your Result

im not even sure what you are....

The title of this quiz was Do you have the right to call yourself a Goth? Bahahahahaa!

5)

Your Result

You are gothic to the bone, you are embraced by many black shrouded entities...this is a good path to follow...welcome to the dark side! Now please rate!

Lovely to know.

That's all I'll subject you to today. I really have to get on that studying thing.

Splat!

Only a few more days until Halloween and I'm super excited. It's gonna be a great weekend. I'm not really going trick-or-treating or partying or anything of the "normal" things people do for this particular festival, but I AM doing lots of spooky things.

Over the weekend, I intend to spend it cooking and baking delightfully creepy Halloween foods, watching Halloween themed movies and of course, dying my hair purple.



That's the color. I've read some pretty good reviews on this brand so I think I'll give it a go. On Saturday I'm going to bleach my hair out. I'll give it a night to recoup and then put in the dye on Sunday I think. Or I might just do it all in one go. We'll see.

Has anyone else ever used this brand before? What did you think of it?

Happy Monday, spooky kids!

Greetings Doom-Cookies and Jelly-Spoons! Wow, I haven't used that greeting since pretty much this blog was born. Sad, maybe I'll have to do that more often. I need a little bit more whimsy and insanity in my days.

Anyways....I had a rather delightful weekend. It had it's share of ups and downs, but life would be pretty boring if it were dandy all the time. Friday night, Chris and I went to eat out of at Applebees. We normally hit up Perkins, but I wanted a bit of a change so that's what I suggested. There, frankly, aren't many restaurant options in my hometown and the few cool ones here close around 4 pm. What the fuck, right?

Anyways, there's a birthday party going on at Applebee's and this huge family decided they were going to pile all the kids into one corner booth. Coincidentally, we happened to  be seated right next to this booth. So our entire dinner consisted of bratty little hellions running amok behind us. Right obnoxious, it was. And of course, the parents don't actually know how to be parents and discipline their kids, so I'm almost positive they annoyed everyone in the establishment, servers and cooks included. Only once did someone get up and go "shush, sit down and be quiet" - but that didn't last long.

Saturday was much cheerier. I decided to forego my early morning trip to the post office and bank - I'm a fantastic procrastinator in the face of extra sleep; sleep wins every time. Anyways, we went round to Walmart and such - where I found myself a cute fuzzy black hat with ears and some gloves.




They're both lovely and warm - and I can't wait for it to get chilly so I can wear them. ^_^ I also picked up some hair combs, a shower cap, and a box of SPLAT! Lusty Lavender hair dye - which I will be applying to my enthusiastic scalp next weekend. Just in time for Halloween. I also got this tank top since it was on sale for $3.


On Sunday morning, I knew the Lolita Meetup was gonna either be a complete bust or would just not happen at all. I felt sick and had a migraine coming on very early and Chris hadn't slept much the night before either, so I felt horrible about making him drive to the cities.

In the end, I got dressed and off we went. I had Chris snap a photo before we left though and it's the only one I've got:



I'll say this: Uncommon Grounds coffee house has the best White Mocha I've ever tasted. As far as the actual meetup went, things seemed really disjointed and awkward. I'm actually not sure I'll go again...Chris didn't have the greatest time either. But it can't be helped, neither of us were feeling well. I'm surprised I stayed as long as I did though.

Anyways....next weekend will undoubtedly be better. It'll just me at home with the family, doing my ooky-spooky hair stuff and watching Halloween films whilst baking spooky goods to consume. Toodles~
