Novels #28: Book Haul #9

Hey Gang!

I haven’t really been talking books lately but I have been reading and buying them non-stop. Which is actually terrible because I bought this group of books from Half Price Book almost 3 months ago and then found them a couple of days ago, when I was doing my weekly clean up of my studio.

I think subconciously I was thinking I would pick these up to read for October because all of them have a spooky tilt to them. I have read There’s someone in your house already, and I loved it so much I bought it. Twisted is written by the same author who did Truly, Madly, Deadly and I knew I had to get it.

I think the very first novel in this group I’ll be reading will be Twisted by Hannah Jayne and then probably moving onto The Morganville Vampires. I haven’t read a novel with villains in quite a while and I kind of miss it. What better way than to pick up a novel for half the price and hope for the best?!

Series #62: Riverdale: As Above So Below Thoughts (Spoilers)

Hey Gang!

October and getting those costumes out in a timely fashion really took it out of me. By the time Halloween actually rolled around, I couldn’t even be bothered to actually dress up for Halloween. I handed out candy with my hair in a bun, wearing sweatpants. I just needed a break, and that’s what the last few days of last week was. It feels good to be back, so let’s talk some Riverdale.

0_Riverdale-Season-3.jpg

The amount of times I said Holy shit during this television program just keeps increasing with every episode! I want to talk about everything, I think it should be pretty obvious by now that these contain spoilers.

Ok, so Ethel is pretty much the only member left playing Gargolyes and Griffins, or G&G and it has been nicknamed, and she had a siezure, just like Betty when she saw the floating twins. She thinks that Edgar Evernever and can we talk about how every main character that isn’t an adult has an alliteration for a name? Is controlling the seizures and how the game is played and who it’s played by.

Take into account that the parents have also played the game, who was in charge of it then? Still Evernever? I mean the parents are what in their 40’s? Early 50’s? That would have to make Evernever at least Hella Old, or something ungodly. Unless someone was running it before him? How old is the Farm? Is it something that’s passed down, like how it appears to be working betweeen Edgar and Evelyn? Trying to get it into the High School?

Let’s talk about the Speakeasy. La Bonne Nuit. I don’t drink, and I don’t plan too, but I have always wanted to spend my nights in a speak easy. The glimmer of a time long past, where everyone and everything is illicit, it’s an alluring thought. La Bonne Nuit is no exception. With Josephine as it’s residennt songstress and Kevin as it’s Emcee, it’s definitely a step in the past, in one of the best ways possible. Although, singing Anything goes, and not dressing like Josephine Baker is a severe oversight in my opinion. It’s beautiful, a work of art, and if Hiram has anything to say about it, it will become dangerous.

Veronica gets a visit from Penny, and then a delivery of Jingle Jangle, right before a surprise inspection by Sherriff Minetta, both of Whom are on Hiram’s team. They clear it all out, before opening night, but I would be weary Veronica, your father doesn’t play fair, and I don’t think you should either. Three things popped into my head after that scene. What exactly happened to all of that Jingle Jangle? What did Reggie do? Open them all and pour them down the drain? Hide them in the cabinets?

There wasn’t proper time to dispose of them all, What did Hiram actually expect to go one once Minetta found the Jingle Jangle? That they would shut down, it’s a speak easy, why wouldn’t they just reopen illegally and actually live up to their namesake? Also, when he delivered Veronica’s Portrait? I would have that swept for bugs. Would that not be the perfect way to keep an eye on your daughter?

Now, I would say for the kicker, but we haven’t even talked about Jughead playing G&G yet, so let’s cut across to Archie in Jail Hell. The only advice Mad Dog had given him was DON’t GET TAPPED, and what do you do Archie? You get tapped?! Also, I need to know what happened to Mad Dog. Although an illegal fighting ring, is pretty bad, that wasn’t nearly as dark as I thought they were going to go with it.

I was thinking inappropriate touching, perhaps a sex Slave situation, while I am happy that Mad Dog was saved from that horrible situation, it doesn’t mean the situation he had was any better. After winning two battles, Archie is given some perks of his new position and Mad Dog’s Hand me downs. Which include a small rock hammer.

Perhaps it’s just me but Archie is just too trusting. TOO TRUSTING! You don’t know those other guys, they could be just as new as you. What if they tell the Warden? What if they’re waiting for you at the end of the tunnel with Machine Guns? You’ll be dead and all that hard work, all that effort to get back to Veronica, get back to your old life? Gone, dead. Useless. I love that Archie cares about all, but he’s got to be smarter! Also, talking to a figment of his father? I’m glad it gave him the advice he needed but that definitely isn’t something that’s going to go away anytime soon.

Now let’s talk about Jughead delving into the world of G & G. I knew some fuck shit was going to happen as soon as Ethyl says only Jughead can come play the game. What I wasn’t expecting was what I found. Neither apparently was Jughead. Having to kiss Princess Etheline to get the rule book? Then when FP burned it? I knew there was more to this then they were letting on, and then when Jughead walked into the school and saw that every kid had a players manuel?! OH MAN! The perfect way to finish an episode. I’ve been itching to watch the next one!

Octoween #7: THE END.

Hey Gang! I know Halloween has been over for a week, but I still have a few costumes to talk about.

Winnie The Pooh: I literally woke up Saturday morning and was like… I COULD BE WINNIE THE POOH! So at 9 am I headed out to my nearest Michael’s to pick up a red t-shirt because I don’t actually own one, and yellow felt for his ears. I cut the collar off the t- shirt because I really enjoy off the shoulder looks, I paired it with Red varsity socks, and a yellow skirt I already owned.

IMG_20181029_105611_396.jpg

Tigger: I was on a high from how adorable my Pooh costume was, and thought I would continue 100 Acre wood costumes, until I woke up from a double and looked not cute at all. I literally only have one photo of this costume because I wasn’t really feeling it and I was freezing at work, so I spent most of the day in my Audre Sweatshirt. I got a keyhole orange top from target (also didn’t own one for some reason) wore it with leggings. I made the ears with orange and pink felt, and made the stripes with a sharpie.

IMG_20181104_090024_160.jpg

Utena Tendou: I came across the dress on etsy and had to have it, and then when I was putting together costumes for work, the idea to do something Utena-adjacent popped into my head and I could’t Let it go. It’s not necessarily her full look because she’s always wearing shorts and her school uniform and that was something I couldn’t get away with at work, but I was pretty proud of my attempt. It’s a cotton candy wig, I actually purchased for an Anne Wheeler costume that I never put together, and the god killer sword I got from Walmart. None of the people I saw during the day recognized who I was supposed to be. I think I get hipster points for being an anime character no one recognizes right?

Octoween #6: Alice In Wonderland

Hey Gang!

Friday, I was able to read over the regulations of costumes for work, so I could be better prepared for Halloween week. I decided to go the Disney Route and do Alice in Wonderland! I took the costume that I originally had for Fred, and I’m glad I did, because it fits so perfectly for Alice. I think it would be better to use jeans, when doing Fred next time.

20181026_135623.jpg

This costume consists of A Blue Skirt with Braces from Amazon, a White bodysuit from Rue 21, Blond wig from Amazon, and a Aquamarine bow from Charlotte Rouse.

I thought it was very weird, that someone thought I was Cinderella, but going through the pictures, if I had a bun, and no ribbon, it would possibly be seen. I think it’s so hilarious how many people have gotten my costumes wrong, even though they’re super recognizable characters.

Octoween #5: Bubblegum Witch

Hey Gang!

Thursday, started Halloween week at my jobs, so I started to put together even more costumes, and because I was working, time kind of got away from me. I wasn’t necessarily sure what I could get away with at my job because its business casual. So i played it safe and wore a pink dress, and dressed up as a witch!

20181025_125851.jpg

Once I started wearing the costume however, I realized with some tweaking, that I could definitely turn it into pinkie pie at a later date, which is awesome! Despite how much fun you may be having it can always be ruined by an asshole, so keep you creative spirit high, and laugh in their face later! During my day of wearing this costume, I had someone say to my face “ GOD! I hope that isn’t your real hair!” I smiled and looked at her and replied, OH GOODNESS, What A lovely CRONE Costume you’re wearing today! Glad to see people in the spirit.” and walked away.

20181025_203014.jpg

Halloween is my favorite time of the year and society deems it acceptable to only wear costumes during this one time of the year, so I refuse to let anyone ruin my fun!

20181025_203340.jpg

This costume consists of a pink long sleeved dress from Rue 21, a witches hat from Michaels and a wig I got on sale after Halloween last year from Walmart.

Octoween #4: PowerGirl

Hey Gang!

I was so excited when I actually was able to put Powergirl together! I will have some better pictures soon, but I thought this was cute so I decided to write about it! I know its not a bob, but I honestly think it looks cuter this way.

20181021_204219.jpg

This Costume is just a bodysuit from Rue 21, a red cape from Amazon, and the Blond wig from Apple Jack.
