Heya :) Yet again I've been delayed writing this update. But however better late then never right? Hope ye all are doing ok and had a fun, safe Hallowe'en. I had a great Hallowe'en weekend. My good friends Lisa and Ray came to visit for the weekend. They arrived down to Athlone Saturday evening, so we decided to go out that night to see everyone dressed up. As Hallowe'en was on a Sunday we thought not many people would be out that night due to work on Monday so we went out Saturday night. So anyway when they got here we had dinner and started to get ready! Lisa dressed up as a Zombie Nurse, Ray dressed up as "Party Poison" Gerard Way's alter killjoy ego, my other friend Mairead called over too and dressed up as a Zombie Air-Hostess, and I dressed up as one of the Military Zombie dancers from Marilyn Manson's video for mOBSCENE. As I'm a make up artist and LOVE doing other people's make up, I done Ray's and Lisa's. So when we were ready we took some pictures of each other, had a few drinks and headed into town.
Mairead, Me, Ray and Lisa.
So when we went into town we headed to some bar, before hitting the nightclub. As we were in Athlone, we got STARED OUT OF IT. We were asked could people pose for pictures with us. We were told we looked to scary for Hallowe'en. From what I can remember Hallowe'en is....
"Halloween (or Hallowe'en) is an annual holiday observed on October 31, primarily in Ireland, Scotland, Canada and the United States. It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holiday All Saints' Day, but is today largely a secular celebration. Common Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, wearing costumes (NON-SLUTTY) and attending costume parties, carving jack-o'-lanterns, ghost tours, bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, committing pranks, telling ghost stories or other frightening tales, and watching horror films. Hallowe'en costumes are traditionally modeled after supernatural figures such as monsters, ghosts, skeletons, witches, and devils."
But anyway we had a great night, drinking shots and dancing the night away to spooky music.

So Sunday... HALLOWE'EN!!!! ^__^ It's finally here! My Favourite day of the year! :D And were about to do it all again. After a good long sleep I cooked dinner, well breakfast for us and got ready for round 2. We headed to the shop to get more mixers and got ready as kids were starting to go Trick or Treating pretty early. We handed out all the goodies, had some drink and headed to the lighting of the Bonfire!

So because the fireworks display at the bonfire were getting a lil out of hand we decided to go back home to have Vodka Jelly Shots, have a dance and set my smoke alarms off by messing with sparklers :P
