The Hallotober Tag

Guys Halloween is just around the corner and I for one will be sad when it has come and gone. So, to try and keep Halloween going for as long as I can this year I’ll be talking about it this week AND next week!

Recently Krista over at LeeksPlays tagged me to take part in the Hallotober Tag, and I thought it would be rude not to join in. 😛 Halloween has fast turned into one of my favourite times of year and I am really excited for the spookiest day to be upon us next week!

I’ve literally just gotten home from getting my nails done for Halloween and I’m so excited to answer the questions on this tag now! Honestly, why can’t Halloween be everyday of the year? Or at least once a month? 😛

1. What’s your favourite thing about October?

It’s not long after my favourite month of the year (September) and autumn is in full swing by that point! The weather is cooler, earlier nights are looming and I don’t need any excuse for drinking plenty of hot chocolates.

2. Are you a big celebrator of Halloween?

I have been on and off over the years! When I was a student I did really enjoy dressing up and going out for Halloween. These days I do enjoy doing stuff at home and with friends. This year I’ve bought shit loads of decorations for the house… I have zero regrets!

3. What’s your favourite horror movie?

I’d definitely say The Witches, The Addams Family and Beetlejuice are some that come to my mind straight away!

4. Would you rather a cosy night in watching horrors or a big night out in a costume?

I definitely prefer to stay in these days. The last time I went out for Halloween we couldn’t even get a drink due to how busy it was. It was a nightmare. This year I’m planning to definitely stay in and be cosy.

5. Which has been your most favourite costume to date?

It’s hard to choose to be honest with you… It’s either going to be Alex DeLarge from when I was 21 or when me and Dane dressed up as Mysterion and The Coon from South Park when we were 25/26. I’m so proud of both of those costumes to date and would love to wear The Coon out for cosplay in the future when cons go back to normal.

6. Bobbing for apples or pin the hat on the witch?

Pin the hat on the witch! Bobbing for apples has always been something that grossed me out. I remember as a kid wanting to give it a go but never doing so due to the thought of loads of people spit being in the tub.

7. How do you celebrate Halloween?

It depends to be honest with you. I usually try and do something whether it be with Dane or friends. It’s always fun to watch a film, play games or just do something spooky!

8. What’s your least favourite horror?

I’ve always found the Halloween series to be boring and overrated… Same for Paranormal Activity. This year I’ve wanted to watch Hocus Pocus as I’ve never seen it before and most people rave about it… However I feel like it’ll be another one that is overrated as well and would fast become something I regret watching.

9. Do you have a favourite trick or treating memory?

I only went once as a kid and we wore bin bags. xD Mostly we got given money instead of sweets. I think trick or treating was always something I’d wanted to do but after doing it I felt rubbish. It just felt like more effort than it was worth and like we were “begging” for sweets.

10. What’s your favourite thing about Halloween?

The only thing I can think of is when kids knock your door trick or treating and they’ve made ZERO effort. One year we had some teenagers knock the door and they hadn’t even dressed up… They’d put a bit of zombie make up on and blood. We gave them sweets anyway but it seemed so lazy of them.

This gif is pretty relevant too…

11. Scary costume or silly costume?

Silly costume! I’m not one for scary myself. I always like to have a laugh and especially at Halloween.

12. What’s your favourite Halloween candy?

I can’t say as I really have one to be honest with you… Years ago we bought some gummy spiders from a supermarket and they were so lovely! 😀

13. How will you be decorating your Animal Crossing Island this Halloween?

Well! So far I’ve decorated my villagers gardens with coloured Halloween/pumpkin decorations based on them. Aka Bones is white so he got a white pumpkin item. I’m trying to decorate as much spook as I can!

AND anyone else who would LOVE to take part in this tag! 😀

So guys that is it, Hallotober Tag! I don’t know why but 2020 I have fallen in love with the idea of celebrating Halloween. I think it’s due to COVID and lockdown and due to being in the house most of the time now, I think I just wanted to get it looking really cool for Halloween.

To be honest with you, some of the decorations I’ve bought, I’m planning to leave up as they’re so cool! I bought some ghost fairy lights and I’m already planning to keep them where I’ve popped them. We’ve also bought a big ghost fairy light which I’d love to keep somewhere.

Are you looking forward to Halloween this year? If so, what are you planning on doing? 🙂

Also, make sure to take part in the tag if you would like to! Make sure to link me back to your posts as I’d love to read your answers to the questions. 🙂

Until next time, take care guys and see you next week for Halloween! 😀

  1. Thank you!!!! ❤ Also, oooo, Halloween nails. Those are wonderful! I got some I'm going to put on, as I've wanted to try false nails again. I'll definitely take a picture. We watched Hocus Pocus last year and it's pretty good, but not as good as some of my favorite horror movies. I feel like you do about overrated stuff. Though, Paranormal Activity is one I like because it's so cheesy but still scares me, haha!

    • Aww thank you! 😀 Due to lockdown in the UK at the moment I’m planning to try and keep my nails for the next month. xD PRAY FOR MY SPOOPY NAILS. xD
      Yeah Hocus Pocus was okay, but there are much better underrated horror films out there!
      Haha yeah to be fair I need to rewatch Paranomal Activity. xD

  2. Ooooo, the Halloween nails look great and I love the costumes. I’ve bought some decorations this year too. I had a few before from tk maxx but they eventually broke and were hard to store so I bought some more. Those ghost lights sound cute, l’d probably keep them up all year too.

    I like the Hocus Pocus movie but it does get over hyped. I think it’s pretty much pure nostalgia for a lot of us so there’s the memories of watching it when we were little that make it better. I like it because of that and I do think it’s aged ok as well considering when it was made, I wouldn’t say it’s the most amazing film ever like a lot of people though, lol.

    • Aww thank you so much! 😀 I do really love them. ^_^
      I bought decorations and put them up but all the ghostie lights I bought I want to keep up all year round! They’re so funky. ^_^
      We bought and carved pumpkins on Halloween but we’ve had to thrown them away today as they’ve started smelling and going rotten already… Very disappointed. 😦

      Yeah I completely agree! I watched it for the first time this year and really enjoyed it, but I’m not in a rush to watch it again to be honest with you. xD
