I hope everyone had a fun Halloween weekend. Did you go out guising? Or trick or treating if you’re not from the UK. Me and a few friends dressed up to watch scary movies, eat Chinese and give our bags of sweets to the neighbourhood children. One of my friends was really excited about giving out sweets as this was her first Halloween in her own house, she really went all out. We all carved pumpkins and she made up 50(!) bags of sweets. Sadly it was a bit rainy out and we only got three callers at the door. Hey, at least that meant there was lots of leftover sweeties for us!
I dressed up as a vampire. Sadly that didn’t help me to find a Damon Salvatore but it was fun none the less! I don’t know if you’ve ever dressed up as a vampire but of course I wanted to have some good fangs. To the joke shop I headed to buy a set but when I got them home they were a bit of a disaster. It doesn’t help that I’ve had the teeth removed that you are supposed to fix them to (ahh…childhood braces coming back to haunt me) but it just wasn’t happening. So where does one turn when in need of DIY fangs? PIntrest of course! I found a very helpful tutorial for using fake nails and denture cream to create fangs. It sounds awfully strange but it worked like a dream! Just some tips for next year. (more…)
