Popping in out of the blue because this seems like the best place to ask...
What are your very favorite Halloween/autumn/spooky-themed Tumblrs?
Flood me with links! :D
So I'm sure everyone knows, but people are selling off their Monster High collections on eBay. If you've got patience (and older dolls) that you particularly wanted back-when, nowish is the time to be hunting them. Kalli and I have managed to score a couple ghouls for less than what they originally retailed for. It takes me a long time to find ones with decent pictures so I can weed out eye-wonk, but it's worth it. I've stopped worrying about glue because if I'm terribly fussed, there are lovely people who offer rerooting services and really, it's just a matter of saving up for that.
My Christmas excitement is finally starting to settle in. I've really enjoyed having Kalli open up gifts. I'm awful, really, and hate surprises. It makes me happy to have her open up her things and look at them. (Saving items for one specific day is just silly. I like making people feel special often.)
We've got a Nor'easter on its way! I think we're supposed to get at least 14 inches of snow, if the weather reporters are to be believed, and eeeeeeeee I loves me some winter. Tons of dolls-in-snow pictures to come, I'm sure! We may lose power but that's no real hardship with a woodstove and piles of woollen blankets.
I should get some pics of the tree...
Eeee, it's finally Halloween! I wish I'd had the opportunity to do a little more with the holiday but I've been completely broke since September. All of my job prospects keep falling through so I'm thinking it's probably time to go back to school and finish some things. A useful degree would look better, yeah?
Either way, I'm going to hop in the shower and then deck myself out in Halloween items and drag some dolls around for photos. I'll probably get some laughs when I go out to the post office!
I poked Alisha about driving into Fryeburg to see what people got up to on Mischief Night but she wasn't interested. Phooey. :/ Oh well, next year perhaps!

I've been getting my girls ready for Halloween! As some of you know (or will remember), I tend to think of the entire month of October as Halloween. It's a time of far-too-many pumpkin desserts (sans nutmeg, as I'm allergic), candles, dolls in witch dresses, Halloween-themed cookies from the grocery, candy (duh) and digging out all the cute Halloween movies Netflix has to offer. It's also the season for the Fryeburg Fair, which takes place some ten minutes down the road from where I live. My girlfriend and I will definitely be going this year as rain and obnoxious housemates prevented us last year.
(The fair is awesome, guys. It's huge. It attracts over 300,000 people annually. The town of Fryeburg only has about 3,500 year-round residents. Craziness! It's all one gigantic agricultural/harvest celebration/autumn/Halloween/midway for a week at the beginning of October!)
I'm still trying to decide which doll I'm going to take for photos. It really doesn't make sense to bring more than one, so I'll have to be decisive.
Wal*Mart had some lovely Halloween-themed shirts this year. I spotted a Nightmare Before Christmas one in amongst the glittery webs, pumpkins, and witches. Unfortunately the best ones were at the Scarborough Wal*Mart and that's a good two hours from where I live. :( I didn't have enough with me at the time. I managed to get a cute one from the Wal*Mart in North Conway though, so I'll have to get some obnoxious Halloween selfies fairly soon. Eee!
Anyway, there's more to come! Dolls in Halloween clothes galore!
