Magnificent Monday: Judith O’Dea

Magnificent Monday

Well, Halloween is finally here! So I thought it would be nice to honor a star of one of my all time favorite movies. Judith played Barbara in Night of the Living Dead, an amazing picture that’s still has a massive creepy factor to this day. I’ve seen it like a bajillion times, it’s my go to movie during net downtime & I even keep a copy on my phone (shockingly, it’s public domain), because you just never know when you might need to kill a little over an hour watching all the characters die. I should really focus more on the woman being honored, but I have to mention a noteworthy point about Night of the Living Dead, the character that lives until the end of the movie is African American. He’s also one of the take charge characters & the idiot that keeps trying to take over never once uses his ethnicity as a reason. Realizing that is pretty amazing considering the movie was made in 1968. O’Dea’s character wasn’t particularly strong, but then she had just witnessed the death of her brother, the world was ending & the whole movie takes place in less than 16 hours of the character’s life.

Judith, she always looks so sophisticated & she seems to enjoy simple chains. Of course, her style is not limited to chains, but there is something so elegantย & classic about them I decided to focus on them exclusively for today’s showcase. Everything in today’s list was found while browsing Amazon.

Fantastical Friday: Costume Reveal

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Well, this is a long time in coming, we’ve had these costumes for months now. We decided, a while back, to go with a theme for both of our costumes & we considered several ideas along those lines. In the end we decided to go with the sorcerer/sorceress thing. Back when we were making these selections I was briefly an affiliate with Halloweencostumes.com, who despite inviting me into their program dropped me in about a week, so that’s where we did our shopping. I’ve seen my robes on many different sites so if you like it, you can find it almost anywhere, lol. If all goes as planned for the handfasting it will be live streamed on facebook from my personal page (if you look at my about page, my name is there, so I am findable), but you don’t have to follow me to see it, should you want to watch, as the vid will be reshared here, likely next Friday. With today’s post I didn’t find the names or prices of the items pictured, as every site out there varies, but we did get ours from the aforementioned site so the pic gives credit to them. ๐Ÿ˜‰ As a side note, we never had any intention of going with the concept ridiculous beard shown in the shop pic of my man’s robes, lol.

Watermelon Wednesday: Never Lose Whimsy

Watermelon Wednesday

Let’s face it, wigs can be fun. They’re useful for a variety of purposes, such as cosplay, LARPing & a temporary look change. It can be mood elevating to radically or subtly alter ourselves & we don’t always want these alterations to be permanent. I really like purple so today’sย selection from Wigsbuy reflects that enjoyment. Naturally, when talking about wigs, you should go with colors you like, or those you feel complement your attributes. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The selection available from this shop is amazing, I’m certain something that fits anyone’s style & mood can be found.

Magnificent Monday: Jada Smith

Magnificent Monday

With Halloween upcoming I thought I would honor a woman who stared in one of my favorite (I have a lot of faves in this genre, LOL) horror movies. In ’95 Tales from the Crypt released their first feature length film Demon Knight, which became one of the rare movies I’ve gone out of my way to see on the big screen. Jada’s character was amazing as she defeated the most suave demon to ever grace the silver screen. Lately she’s been playing the terrifying role of Fish Mooney on Gotham, which is a series I follow faithfully (believe me, no matter what happens, Fish isn’t gone). She’s also been involved with numerous charities, even creating the Will & Jada Smith Family Foundation with her husband thatย focuses on inner city youth & their families.

Ever stylish & beautiful, I’ve chosen to mostly focus on her tasteful earring choices. Ear drama seems fairly common among many of the women I look up to & I certainly don’t mind indulging this fashionable accessory choice with an occasional earring centered wish list. ๐Ÿ˜‰ All of the pieces in today’s post were found at Pink Basis & are well worth checking out. ๐Ÿ˜€

Watermelon Wednesday: Creepy Bling

Watermelon Wednesday

Naturally, I still have my Halloween feelers out, so as I was checking around Billy the Tree for something to spotlight today I ended up selecting a wonderful goth item. If you’ve been following me for a while, then you’re probably aware that I have a weird thing about spiders (might check out the post I did last year as my birthday wishlist, LOL) & so today’s selection will not come as a big surprise. If you’re into the creepy & macabre then you’ll probably enjoy these beauties too. ๐Ÿ˜‰ They are a little more expensive than I would like, but they also remind me a lot of a necklace I had when I was a teen, actually these earrings are identical to the pendant on the aforementioned necklace. Wonder where that necklace ever got off too…..

Magnificent Monday: Elvira

Magnificent Monday

Behold, the beautiful mistress of the dark! Cassandra Peterson, the Queen of Halloween, created the character of Elvira in 1981, the first episode of Movie Macabre airing in late September of that year. It’s almost hard to believe the show began in L.A. When I was a child we lived in a reconditioned older house that had been made into a duplex, the basement was on our side & it was set up something like another living room. You might be tempted to ask me how that’s relevant in any way, but stick with me for a sec & it will become clear, lol. I would sneak down there at night to watch Movie Macabre, not because I wasn’t allowed to watch, but because it was so late, I wasn’t supposed to be up. I tried to research all across the net exactly when her show became syndicated, but the information does not seem to be available, so I gave up after several hours. I was trying to pinpoint when in time I might have been slipping down into the basement to, half asleep, watch the most epic horror movie hostess of all time. After giving up on the internet answering my question, I asked my mom when we lived in that house (there was only one place with a living room setup in the basement, lol) & she said it was probably the winter of 85/86. That’s probably not when it was syndicated, but when I really noticed her & just in case you’re wondering, I was 5. Wow, that was so long ago & we were living in Missouri back then. A few years back I started playing Smallworlds (you may or may not know that’s my virtual world of choice) & I noticed there was a staff avatar with the name Elvira Smallworlds. I later met that staff memeber, who is from New Zealand & she named that avatar in honor of her favorite horror hostess, who she watched growing up. I can’t help but wonder how old that staff member isย & when Elvira became internationally syndicated, but the fact that she is beloved worldwide warms my heart.

She recently released a book (you can see a copy in one of the pics above) with more than 350 pictures, a lot of previously unreleased photos & original commentary. You can find the book hereย (not affiliated with the publisher, I just love Elvira), it’s $44.95 for just the book & 89.95 for a signed copy. Through the decades she has worn a variety of gothic jewelry pieces & while I have made some selections based on that I’ve also just gone with my own goth heart on this little wishlist from Amazon. You’ll notice that 8 isn’t even jewelry, just a cool jewelry (or other item) holder & well, I like it, lol.
