Post some photos of sugar skulls if you can- heck photos of every use of a skull would be fun. I went to one Dios de la Muerte while visiting friends in Texas a few years back and would love to do it again.
In Australia we don't celebrate Halloween as such but we have a special dinner cooked by my daughter of "Halloween" food and we have a few decorations but we don't trick or treat. I wish it was a bigger thing because I love it
Well, I've changed my avatar and signature to a pseudo-Halloween flavour: Marik Ishtar from Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged. And yes, that IS a guy. He's meant to be Egyptian, believe it or not. In Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged, he comes across as an extremely camp (and in denial about his status in the closet) distillation of Rik Mayall's comedy characters
Anyway, obligatory Halloween-flavoured video: the Marilyn Manson cover of This is Halloween (and incidentally, the only Marilyn Manson song I like), set to clips from the anime Soul Eater. It's better than it sounds.
I haven't dressed up as anything for Halloween for a long time, to be frank, partly because I'm too old to go trick or treating, but also because I haven't got anything I can make on a reasonable budget. I actually had the revelation yesterday that, as I had a suit already, I could, in theory, dress up as the Slender Man, but I didn't have anything to make a 'faceless' mask. Bugger.
All you need to understand Is everything you know is wrong!
