About Me

I like to pretend I'm in a movie, dress up late at night, roll down hills and make zines.

Happy Halloween everybody!!

I'd love to know the moment in history when people decided Halloween should be turned into what I can only describe as a "slut and tat fest", all the shops are decked with vibrant displays and people parade round as underdressed versions of their chosen character.
I'd love to go back to these kind of costumes..

Actually, I'd love to do anything for Halloween, because and I hate to admit it, I've never been trick or treating and I've only ever apple bobbed to celebrate :3
This year as some kind of celebration I've..
·Gone round all the cheap shops and managed to find 29p glow in the dark face paint (which won't even be used for Halloween purposes), and some fun sweets.

.Carved some paper- we didn't have a pumpkin okay??!

. Wore my spiderweb tights to college. (Ugh, I was the only one in anything like this)

And now I plan to spend the evening dreaming of séances and candlelit viduals but instead I think I'll dress up as Phantom of the Opera and read his story and watch his film..

A few minutes later...

Sylvia Plath would've been 79 today, her work is perfect.

Superhero past

I have finally found some proof that I was a superhero in the past, and it was one of the best days of my life dressing as Batman for a carnival float.

I just really remember all the girls were being Hollywood girls and icons and noone really knew who they were, but I was Batman and I was getting waves and started looks of little boys looking up and seeing someone they knew, not knowing it was just me being the costume.

It really was a perfect day being someone who I wasn't at such a young age, which is what this blog is kind of about and it probably started the thrill of dressing up and knowing that people can see you as someone completely different with a few small changes.

I hope my three beautiful followers are well <3

Happy Birthday Oscar Wilde.

I think the title is self explanatory~ he was a brilliant man who wrote some great stuff and left many wonderful quotations so today I pretended to have a tea party with him.

There needs to be an Autumn equivalent of Cliff Richards "Mistletoe and Wine" because even if you hate him, it's a fun song to sing. "Jumpers and pine"? Or um maybe not, but this post is about wood and jumpers so possibly. Well I'll be singing it anyway. This is me, in my wood shed doing some celebratory Autumn jumper wearing.

And boots, which I actually keep meaning to return to my schools drama department as they were only borrowed for my role in Sweeney Todd but I'm not sure I can get through Autumn without them. ( Oh and who says it's too cold to wear shorts!)

Don't think the jumper stands out enough? Add a colourful collar.. Think the jumper stands out too much, wear a simple collar. Or just clash the liveliness of both..

Oh and also, knee high pop socks. That is all.

I hope everyone is having a groovy week and has found a jazzy jumper <3
