Judit’s Halloween Favorite Film: Hocus PocusHocus PocusWhen a teenager resurrects three  witches he and an immortal cat are the only thing that can save the town. The three witch sisters Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy make Hocus Pocus a fun little movie that can’t be taken too serious, but is still a little scary.


Corina’s Favorite Halloween Film: Practical MagicPractical MagicSandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman are sisters who have to fight a strange curse that every man who falls in love with them is doomed. It is a result of witchcraft and the sisters try to break the curse and have some spooky adventures along the way. Practical Magic is a cute movie any time, but it is especially great to watch around Halloween with the lights low and a few candles.


Corina’s Friday Favorites: Halloween CostumesHalloween Corina Dia de MuertosAs you might guess Halloween is my favorite fun holiday! This year I was a Bavarian Día de Muertos – the dirndl came from my very own closet and I was glad to have so many odd colors in my makeup kit since they came in handy. For the face I used silver eyeshadow all over and blue eyeliner for the details. The flowers came from Judit’s vase and did double duty as a headdress. This costume was a hit at a party two Halloween’s ago and I loved it so much I decided to do the Bavarian Día de Muertos again. Don’t you think I did a slightly better job this year?

Halloween Party MusicOn Halloween even the wineries transform into spectacular venues with music. The Carr Winery tasting room was a perfect backdrop for a spookalicious night.

Halloween party space devil costumeA few years ago I was a Space Devil (yes the blue hair was the Space part) with fellow little devils at the Canary Hotel.

    The costumes look brilliant, you obviously had a great one! I went to a little Halloween party but because of exams, nothing extravagant!

    1. Hope you had a wonderful time at the Halloween party Choc Chip Uru. I had so much fun at a party, even though it started to rain that night and it hasn’t rained most of the year. C

    The spaghetti squash does look like a pumpkin and is perfect for Halloween dinner. Practical Magic is one of my favorites too and now that I got reminded of it I want to watch it tonight while I pass out Halloween candy.
