Halloween Fun

Today I thought it was a great occasion to dress up and go to my favourite cafeteria with my boyfriend. We had a lot of fun together! We also saw a few dressed up people too, even the cafe owner had skull makeup and also black leggings with skulls. That was really nice.

This is my attempt for Sugar Skull makeup. I think it came out nice, considering the fact I did something like this for a first time and only with drugstore cosmetics (excluding the white base).

 I also did makeup for my boyfriend. It was a more realistic skull, so it matched mine!

 Just a regular day, eating eyeballs as usual.

All the photos without my boyfriend are took by him and edited by me.

Hope you have a great day. I wish you the most spooky and fun Halloween!

Poisoned Poetry

I have very little time lately because of school beggining. I'm attending a university on art faculty. I have a lot of work and I come home lately but I enjoy my lectures so far. I'm especially thrilled for linocut. We just started it and it's so much fun!

This week is going to be exciting, I go to hairdresser with my boyfriend and can't wait to see his new hairstyle. Also, Halloween! I have an idea for a costume and it's going to be the best I've had so far.

 Today I'm a witchy doll.

Necklace: gift from a friend
dress: Lindex
Shoes: Vagabond

Also I went to Kamelot concert a few weeks ago and it was so amazing I already miss it. I don't listen to much metal music nowadays, but this band is one of my favourites ever. I just love the dark atmosphere of their music videos, lyrics and emotional vocals. Also, I may have a little crush on their new vocalist. He is not only good-looking singer of two great bands, but he is also full-time firefighter.

This song is quite fast but the music video is probably my favourite.

Halloween tag

I've been tagged by The Mutant Stomp Friends, which is a great inspirational blog written by a lovely girl. I'm very excited since i love answering questions, and Halloween theme is definetely something i enjoy. Let's get to the questions!
1. Favorite Halloween song?

That's easy, ,,This is Halloween". It always come to my mind when I think about this holiday. I also love the version of Nick Pitera which I've posted a year ago.

2. Witch or vampire?

Vampire. I am one.

3. Favorite thing about Halloween?

I absolutely love dressing up. The best thing in Halloween for me is being able to change the look completely and walk on the streets feeling like a mythical creature.

4. Halloween party or scary movie marathon?

I'm not a party person, so I would choose marathon. Or a little bit of both: small party with closest friends and watching movies.

5. Skeletons or zombies?

Skeletons! Mostly because I'm fascinated with human anatomy in general.

6. Favorite Halloween candy?

I don't really know since I've never done ,,trick or treat" thing. So I will count bat cupcakes from my favorite cafe as a candy.

7. Favorite Haloween movie?

I can't pick one. Though I really like watching an classical horrors, so I would say Dracula or Frankenstein.

8. Favorite Halloween costume?

Anything that is spooky instead of pop-culture. I'm basically a vampire every year. I was victorian one lately. Though I will be something different this year, it's going to be really nice...


9. Favorite Halloween store?

Don't understand the question, in Poland there is no Halloween stores. But last few years Halloween collections are getting popular. I saw the best one so far in Claire's, they had plenty of wigs, hats and halloween-themed jewellery. So nice!

10. Jack-o-lanterns, yes or no?

Definetely yes! It's a form of art. Too bad I'm not personally good at carving, but maybe someday I'll try it.

11. Bats or black cats?

Bats! They are cute little fluffy flying demons. 

12. Is Halloween your favorite holiday?

Yes, It's the most fun one! Though I love all holidays!

13. Pumpkin spice latte or hot chocolate?

Haven't tried pumpkin latte yet since I rarely drink coffe. So hot chocolate.

I tag:

I would love to see your answers in this tag guys!

New room decor

As you may remember, I mentioned my room is going under complete renovation. I can finally say it's over. I am not going to post old look of the room since it wouldn't make sense. It's been changed so much that it looks like entirely diffent place. There is literally no old thing left. Even floor and walls are new. I am delighted by the final result. Let me show you!

First, new wall decoration. Drawings are mine, they were inspired by victorian illustration. They are put in Ikea frames that are also new.

The clock is absolutely one of the most beautiful clock I've ever seen. It also has a canvas texture which looks amazing in real life!

 This is my favourite part of room. I think this Ikea mirror looks great near my new metal bed and velvet pillows!

 I also finally have Monster High dolls. They are soo cute. Just look at Draculaura's wings!

 I drew also that victorian lady and raven. On the left there are hooks for jewellery that turned out to be very practical.

 I got also a few matching plastic boxes in which i keep mainly perfume and sunglasses. (Oh, by the way, I think you MAYBE, only maybe already know what my favourite color is...)

My dad also put a hook in the shelf so I can display my pretty Ikea lantern.

Now the best thing about it: all the furnitures except the bed are repainted. Even the black shelves. I personally painted everything with my dad. They were all ugly orange-ish brown before. We saved a lot of money that way.
I have also new floor, it's gorgeous pinkish-brownish light gray color. And a matching fluffy carpet, which is pretty comfortable since I hate wearing something on my feet at home, hehe.

I could write also about new desk, blinds and chair, but I think I managed to mention all the major changes without writing a whole essay. What do you think about my fairytale room?
