There is nothing going on on Stardoll that's worth writing about, so I thought I'd make a special post. And what better theme than Halloween?
Now read something about the basics while listening to Marilyn Manson's song "This is Halloween":
Pumpkin, Fallen Angel, 45 - 55 starcoins, depending on the type
Jack-O'-Lanterns are carved pumpkins with a candle in them. There's a legend about a blacksmith trapping the Devil and making him promise that he won't take the blacksmith's soul. So when he died, the blacksmith couldn't go to heaven or hell so he was stuck wondering the world with carved beetroot (=pumpkins later on) keeping him company.
2. Black cat
Scared cat, interior Pet shop, 6$
Black cats have been closely tied to Halloween for ages. Why? I'd say multiple reasons, the first one being superstition. They were also supposed to be the companions of witches. I've read that the owners of black cats are advised to keep them indoors for a week before Halloween because of theft.
Bat, interior Pet shop, 5$
These cute little creatures are linked to Halloween because of the link with vampires and blood-drinking. People used to make big bonfires to ward off evil spirits, so the fire attracted bugs, which attracted bats, so they were considered to be the evil spirits.
I was hoping Stardoll would provide us with some decent costumes too, but I guess not.. So I went through my closet and found some older clothing pieces that can be used as costumes. These are gothic lolita, angel, pirate and witch:
And the last thing; if you'll be watching a movie with friends, here's some scary movie suggestions:
1. Harry Potter
2. The Addams Family
3. Edward Scissorhands.
4. The Nightmare Before Christmas
5. Corpse Bride
Now does anyone think I should also make a competition?
