On the thirteenth day of Creepmas, my true ghoul gave to me...

...a Friday the 13th in December! O.o
(Wow! What luck! ^w^ )

This ghoulish Creepmas countdown has come to another bittersweet end. I hate to part from you all.
Cuddling up with a black cat, and enjoying some mulled wine, hot cocoa, or tea by the fire is heavily recommended for Creepmas withdrawals.
With Necrofeast coming up on the twenty-seventh of this month, here is a comic that features a good winter spirit, and here is some information on Necrofeast as parting gifts.

...don't get whisked away by the darker beings out there...

Take care, and may the rest of the holiday season and New Year treat you well! ^w^

On the twelveth day of Creepmas, my true ghoul gave to me...

...a Santa Claws book!

If Gris Grimly is illustrating a book, you know it's going to be fantastic.
I think his works are going to become timeless like Tim Burton's and Edward Gorey's.

For more information on this book, go here.

On the eleventh day of Creepmas. my true ghoul gave to me...

...a 30 Days of Night movie viewing!

Another dark vampire movie to give you goosebumps during the holidays.
These vampires mean business. They rip their victims a new one when the sun goes away for a thirty days in an Alaskan town.
They have multiple fangs, as opposed to the usual two or four fangs on usual vampires you see these days. The better to shred you with, my dear.
Not to mention, they're super messy when they eat. I think they like to show off blood as a trophy.

This little girl seriously scared the hell out of me when I first watched this movie.

Hey! Aren't you also American Horror Story: Coven?

If you're into movies produced by Sam Raimi, this movie is definitely worth checking out.

Note: If you're already into this movie, you should check out the comic.

On the tenth day of Creepmas, my true ghoul gave to me... awesome The Nightmare Before Christmas wall mural!

I have loved this piece of street art since I first saw it online months back.
Major props to the artist. It truly captures the spirit of The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Jack Skellington would be proud.

On the ninth day of Creepmas, my true ghoul gave to me...

...a life size Jack Skellington!

Here's an oldie but goodie that was brings up good memories.
When we get our own place, I'm totally making one. ^w^

To learn how to make him, go here.

On the eighth day of Creepmas, my true ghoul gave to me...

...a Van Helsing movie viewing!

I don't care what anyone thinks-I love this movie.
I don't understand why this movie got so much flack in the first place.
Not counting the cheese factor, the monsters actually looked proper, in my honest opinion.

Currently feeling like a vampire during this pregnancy. I don't ever feel cold (with that perk comes the ability to wear whatever I want without freezing. I missed that)...and might have a slight blood lust. Hehe.

The area where Dracula's castle is located always reminds me of winter.
Ian and I have been pairing this movie and Jingle All The Way together during the holiday season since we started dating back in 2009. It oddly works.

On the seventh day of Creepmas, my true ghoul gave to me... Elf on the Shelf doll!

I have always found the Elf on the Shelf to be creepy looking, yet fascinating.
Retro looking designs will always do that to you.
How else would Santa know when you were sleeping? This little guy/gal (heavily depending on the model you have) will rat you out!

See! What did I tell you!

If you are wanting one, go to the official site located here.
For ideas on how to use your Elf, here's a good link for starters.

The favorite ideas I have seen originate from the Elf causing mischief. I once saw an Elf partying hard with a Krampus figurine. It was pretty epic.

On the sixth day of Creepmas, my true ghoul gave to me...

...zombie themed snowflakes!

Here's a DIY on an oldie but goodie.
I love making these snowflakes in black and purple. ^w^

On the fifth day of Creepmas, my true ghoul gave to me...

...creepy yet wonderful Krampus photos.

Happy Krampusnacht, everyone!

If you remember earlier in the Creepmas countdown, Krampus was mentioned.
Tonight is his night.
You better be good, unless you want to be whisked away.

View the rest here.

Ever since I caught this snowman prank years back, it has been a guilty pleasure to watch.

Seriously, kick back and enjoy this holiday fright fest. ^w^

On the first day of Creepmas, my true ghoul gave to me...

(Welcome! It feels so good to be back to posting again on this blog. I love the idea of Creepmas. Whether you're an oldie or newbie, I hope you will enjoy my Creepmas posts!)

...a super classy Creepmas tree!

This first, fine example to kick off the Creepmas season was made possible by my good friend, Denise.

If you look closely, the ornaments seem normal around the tree, but they aren't. If you're paying attention, you see some Gothic ornaments hanging about. The tree is also not green, but black!

I love black and white trees. They are so versatile in nature.

Denise plans on making this black Creepmas tree into a Halloween tree for 2014. ^w^

The Countdown to Halloween: Denise's Party

I apologize for this late post. I had to get permission for these pictures.
These are my favorites from the bunch taken.
Disclaimer: These pictures are not mine. These belong to the cool people that hosted this party. ^w^


On a final note, this blog will go on hiatus until around Creepmas 2013. See you ghasts and ghouls then! Thank you and take care! ^w^


These pictures were taken at my friend, Denise's, party. It was an adults' only party, which was why Evey wasn't there. Evey was out trick or treating at the mall nearby, then she was taken to the Berry Farm with my folks before she was dropped off at home. If my phone wasn't acting up, pictures of her in her pirate costume would be on here. D:

Aryssa looking like a boss.

The party table. Aryssa brought black lights over, and put them in the lamps above. ^w^

This corner was decorated pretty cute.

It's a Shump.

Denise with her wand at the ready.

These treats were pretty amazing tasting. The stems were made from chewy Tootsie Rolls. O.o

Screw the trick or treaters. Nom on all the candies! :P

Magical beings were here. Proof is in the wands.

Tina's shirt made me smile. This whole costume was genius.

Me in full costume and makeup. I was Mother Earth. If you were wondering, yes, I did make that flower crown from scratch. This crown got so many compliments, and people were baffled when I told them I made it. I plan on wearing it a bunch since it's so versatile with the clothes I own. ^w^

Ian as a modern Father Time. This costume would have been better if he had the pocket watch on him at the time that I gave him as an engagement present. Also, that look is goofy. One would expect him to pull a monocle out of his pocket, and hold it up to one of his eyes. XD

So many pizza slices, so little time. On that note, I didn't realize until it was pointed out that I ate six or seven slices of pizza on my own...and was still hungry afterward. I blame this pregnancy. =.=

Ian was asking me what types of pizzas were available. Also, this shot highlights the treats we brought over. You needed to bring a treat to have been allowed entry. I picked the pumpkin roll, and Ian picked the Cowboy cookies. Gosh, my hair looks fabulous from this angle. The only thing I did was sleep in a wet braid the night before. This hair style is still prominent at the moment. It's fantastic.

The three main desserts of the night.

Ard as a character you might recognize from Breaking Bad. He got so many compliments on this costume that night. The only thing he was missing was the blue rock candy. XD

These sugar cookies were pretty adorable in person.

I was taking a picture for an intense game of digital Pictionary. Notice how the door hanger looks like it's going to devour Ard's brains in the background. XD

Let the games begin!

It's a Kiba kitty. =^.^=

These retro candle holders were perfect.

The ghost in the bathroom. Another cutie.

Party prep.

Bear kept stealing Shump's seats all night. XD

Kiba crossing the path. I don't believe this little guy brings bad luck, however. =^.^=

Ian grabbing some treats to nom on before he had to go get ready for work. I'm digging the side shot of his costume in this photo.

Chilling in good company while giggling at the fourth Twilight movie Rifftrax.

So much delicious alcohol. I wish I could have partaken. Darn being pregnant. The worst part is that Ard brought some Cinnful Apple Angry Orchard hard cider. That stuff is seasonal, so I won't be able to drink it until next year. T.T
