Halloween is one of my favourite days of the year. I love the spookiness, the costumes, the dance with the macabre. Last year I dressed up as a Gypsy and went to the hospital where I work at and read tarot cards for my fellow employees. The costume was epic enough that I took a few selfies (something I rarely do) and found that I was channelling the always controversial Ms. Helena Blavatsky.
So, how to top last year? Start earlier and go bigger!
So I went to the thrift store hoping for some inspiration. In the past I’ve scored a total of two brass Tibetan singing bowls, a crystal ball, several Bhudda’s, numerous crystals and stones, various masks and Tarot decks.
This last trip I found an interesting book on Gothic Poetry and Frankenstein and decided to share some pictures of the books along with my Vampire Tarot deck (by Robert M. Place). I think I’ll use this deck to complete my costume this year and give my co-workers an extra spooky treat!
