All Hallows’ Eve is this Thursday so I thought that today’s Monday meme would be the perfect time to do a HalloMEME!! I know that the concept of Halloween and trick or treating is mainly an American tradition, so I’m going to add some questions to the challenge. Please feel free to do any part and answer any questions you like.
Meme Instructions: Share a picture of your Halloween Costume in Second Life and/or answer the following questions about Halloween. Don’t forget to share a link to your post in the comments and if you share a picture, feel free to add it to the Blog Memes Flickr Group.
I decided to share both Berry’s and ManBerry’s costumes this year. Berry of course is the typical schoolgirl in her uniform and I even gave her a teddy bear to up the innocence factor since she’s going to get chopped up into a million pieces any minute now by ManBerry in his Jason Voorhees costume.
Now on to the questions. I know a lot of people don’t really do Halloween so feel free to skip any that you’d like.
- Did you go trick or treating as a child? Yes, I did. I went all through elementary school till about the 7th grade.
- What was the best Halloween costume you ever saw or wore yourself? The best Halloween costume I ever saw was this guy dressed up as Edward Scissorhands. It was a really well done costume, I was just amazed. As for myself, when I was small I recall usually going as something sweet and cute like a princess or strawberry shortcake or some goofy thing like that but during my college years I did a few Halloween parties and those were usually my best times for costumes. I think my most fav was this Catwoman one I had. It was totally hot! I’m sure ever girl has dressed up as Catwoman at least once though.
- What is your most vivid memory about Halloween? Ok so I was very young, about 6 to 9 and I recall this movie that came on tv every Halloween. I don’t remember the name but it was about this sea creature that used to suck people through the sand on the beach and basically just kill and eat them. The people would completely disappear and no one would know what happened to them. It was the most scariest thing to me at that time and I absolutely hated going to the beach around those years because I always thought the sea creature would suck me in. I cannot for the life of me remember the name of the movie so if you know it, please let me know. They played it on tv every Halloween in the mid to late 80s.
- What is the scariest movie you have ever seen? This is kinda hard cuz there are so many movies that scare me like The Exorcist, The Others, etc… but I’m going to be predictable and pick The Sixth Sense because I remember being in the theater crying my eyes out while watching it. I was just shaking and crying and wiping all of my tears and snot all over my shirt because I had no tissues. Then when they revealed the ending I got goosebumps and totally freaked out and yelled “WHAT????” Yeah, I’m THAT person in the movie theater, sorry.
- Do you ever get nightmares after watching a scary movie? Yes, all the time. Especially if any of the movies have ghosts in them. Ghost movies always freak me out. But I think one movie that I had the most nightmares about after watching was “Saving Private Ryan” it was really hard for me to watch. I dislike war movies.
- Are you superstitious? If so, name at least one superstition of yours. I can be, and over stupid things too. Like not wearing gold jewelry on my feet. Yeah, don’t ask, long story. (ok fine I talked about it in this plurk)
- What will you be doing for Halloween this year, if anything, in SL and RL? I will probably be giving out candy in RL and taking pictures of my pixel butt in a skanky costume in SL.
