Wasn't there a terrifying Brothers Grimm story about a girl with red dancing shoes??

Layers...do you remember those all-one-size clothes, with the tubes? I think they were called "Units" or something?? Oh my! Talk about fits all, flatters none! And the sticking-straight-up bangs with flat hair in back (did we not own hand mirrors in the 80's??). Also, short hugely puffy skirts, And...the balloon skirt dress. Watch any Brat Pack movie for inspiration! Spray on hair color was also popular for those afraid to play with manic panic! And there was always the shower-clock-as-necklace trend, LOL

I was a punk/goth in the 80's  Wink but the skirt over capri leggings, big shirt/blazer over leggings, and my personal "uniform" from the late 80's: black (or ripped, or fishnet) tights under rolled up jeans shorts & DM's. Also, acid wash or pegged jeans, and the dreaded scrunchie (or even worse, the banana clip!), or a giant long off-shoulder sweater & leggings all work. Or neon cheerleader wear ala Toni Basil. LOL. I said Toni Basil. God, I feel old.

You could dye an old thrift store wedding dress green, put fake scars around  your neck and make your face blue/white  and dead looking, carrying a green ribbon...AFTER it's pulled off! I loved that story too. I was Anne Boleyn once for Halloween...and I love ghostly bride costumes...

That is HILARIOUS! His ears fit the holes pefectly! It's a doggie cowl! Maybe if you used the rectangular purple knifty knitter you could make one that goes over his back and attaches to the hood somehow? Hmmm...  I love embarrassing my dog by making him try on wigs...

You could add flames and a red veil, and be the bride of satan

6079  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Re: So you need a theme for your Halloween Party... on: October 10, 2005 11:17:05 AM
I went to a Dead Celebrities party once, that was really good.  Rockabilly Zombies from Hell would be fun...I also went to a party once where about 30 people came as a herd of cows. It was hilarious, not sure if it helps with the theme though? You could also do a color theme ("everyone wear purple" or something)

Yeah, it's normally the nearest weekend anyway. Nov 1st is All-Souls day so Halloween is the night before, when the spookies come out to play. The idea is to dress like one of them so they won't getcha! For my parties I take black trashbags and cut them in shreds and staple them to the ceiling in the hall, so the hall is filled with black streamers. Then I hang a strobe light in the middle and have a fog machine at the end, and the music from Suspiria (great Italian 60's horror, very weird and trippy) playing, so you enter the party through this weird tunnel. Inside I play Suspiria on the tv, and hang a pole from the ceiling horizontally, wrapped in black-light Christmas lights and black and purple tulle, with bats hanging down. I have a costume contest and scary food and candy. The mixture of candy corn and peanuts in a black plastic cauldron is very popular! About a week before my friend hosts a pumpkin carving party so we use the pumpkins. I also use the sea salt and olive oil method, sometimes with a bit of rosemary oil. YUM! Have fun! I once had a Halloween party in England when I lived there. My friends were a little confused and insisted on Pumpkin Pie cause they'd never had it (even though it's the wrong holiday) But they played along nicely!  Grin
