Miss Mimi’s Inspiration: Happy Halloween!

I was a late bloomer when it came to Trick or Treating. I never did see the point of walking up to a stranger and asking them for candy. My parents weren’t particularly conservative. We did jack-o’-lanterns and other pumpkin carvings each year during Halloween, but my brothers and I showed a lack of interest for various reasons:

 

1) My older brother had an anxiety disorder.

 

2) I was a diabetic.

 

3) We lived out in the country where it was pointless to trick or treat because our nearest neighbor was over a mile away.

 

I don’t regret it. There was nothing better than sitting around our fire place on halloween with pumpkin seeds roasted to perfection in our little paper origami cups (we made them ourselves), drinking hot cider or Russian tea and listening to mom read us a story that wasn’t particularly Halloween themed. It was beautiful. Peaceful. Uncontroversial.

 

It wasn’t until high school that I actually went trick-or-treating. I went with a group of my church friends (safety in numbers) dressed as a goth because I didn’t have money to buy an actual costume. It was well received and I’ve been at the very least dressing up every Halloween since.

 

This year my costume was low budget. I used clothing from my own closet, some makeup (mostly foundation, lipstick and eye liner) and a little Steampunk touch (applied with false eyelash glue). Oh, and an eye patch I made myself from some odds and ends I had laying around. Behold my strangely creepy steampunk doll…. thing…ish…yeah. I really don’t know what to call it.

Wow…I look freakishly young.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that you don’t need to be a child to enjoy childish things, you don’t need to fear looking ridiculous (politicians do that enough already), and you certainly don’t need super tons of money to accomplish a look like this. All you need is a closet, some makeup and a little creativity. Happy Halloween everyone!

 

 

 

Weekly Treasury # 17

Another beautiful treasury, that reminds me very much of the Neo-Victorian style. This one is called Gold & Silver Hour and was found with the search term “gothic”.

Weekly Treasury #16

I feel it’s time for something a little more gender specific. Recently I found this treasury while searching the term “men” on etsy. This was super modern, bold and perfect for casual or formal wear. This treasury is called “Modern Mens Fashion” and here is a little taste test for you
