Happy Halloween

Im stormed in. Sandy came through and destroyed so many parts of my beloved city. My heart sincerely goes out to everyone effected. Im lucky to live on a hill, so along with not losing power, I havent had to deal with any flooding.

Cell phone service is quite patchy, and internet as well. I dont imagine Ill be posting much this week. I hope your Halloween is safe and lots of fun! And if you havent seen the Bride of Frankenstein tutorial yet, take a look here!

If youre looking for an elaborate Halloween costume that is easy and cheap, then I suggest you watch this tutorial. I love Halloween and totally wouldnt mind doing Halloween hair tutorials only from here on out.

Supplies youll need:

Comb
Hairpins (work better than bobbies)
Hairspray
Styrofoam Cone
Hair
Extensions (Optional)

Instructions:

Tease your hair until its high and mighty.  Spray with hairspray like crazy. Place Styrofoam cone on your head in desired position. Pull up large sections of your hair to cover the foam cone, and pin into styrofoam. You can stick the pins directly into the foam! Continue until foam is completely covered by your hair and it feels secure. Optional: add a strip of extensions onto either side of your head at the temple area. I curled mine with a marcel iron. Spray with hairspray like crazy.

Now youre ready to get married. Lots of people are possessed on their wedding day you know.

My favorite parts are all the parts with huge hair, and when the candle gets lit. My least favorite part was combing out the teasing which mightnt have been so bad if I had done it that night instead of stuffing it into a bun for two more days

And just because I have to say it somewhereI would like you to know that I was this close to calling this a spooktorial.

Special thanks to the very talented Joe Varca for making this awesome film and Amanda Blair for being the worlds best light flickerer.
