Autumn Daze ~ Spooktacular Halloween Questions

Hello sweet little pumpkins! Sorry to be missing for so long. I've been super busy with work and doctor's appointments and getting blood work, andddd I have a cold, haha. So I thought today I'd share a fun Halloween survey that I'd love you guys to do if you so desire! So consider yourself tagged if you're reading this and feel like doing these questions :)

1. Favorite Halloween movie(s)? Nightmare Before Christmas. My favorite horror movie lately has been Cabin in the Woods though. 
2. Favorite Halloween song? “This is Halloween” cover by Marilyn Manson

3. Favorite candy? Reese's cups

4. Favorite fictional horror movie character? Ash from Evil Dead

5. A personal supernatural experience? Too many to count, but one of the scariest was seeing my mom's doppelgänger standing in my room door. "It" called my name to wake me up twice. When I turned around to face it, it looked at me and fucking disappeared. Though I knew it wasn't her for a couple reasons (main being my mother doesn't have a habit of disappearing out of thin air), I asked her if she woke me up the previous night. Of course, she didn't.

6. Favorite Halloween attraction? The Haunted Mansion and Tower of Terror
7. Favorite Tim Burton movie? The Nightmare Before Christmas. I cleaned my parents' patio to earn money for it as a kid, and I've never looked back!
8. Favorite Rocky Horror Picture Show song? I hate to say it, but I never saw RHPS.

9. Ideal Halloween costume? Ariel
10. Your biggest fear? Losing my loved ones.

11. Zombies or vampires? Vampires.

12. Favorite Nightmare Before Christmas character? Barrel! It always has been. I even got a bracelet at my elementary school's autumn fair with "Barrel" etched into it because he's awesome!
13. A Halloween tradition? Carving pumpkins

14. Favorite fall food? Anything pumpkin is good with me!

15. Plans for Halloween this year? Hopefully getting our zombies out and of course passing out candy.
16. Favorite family Halloween movie? Hocus Pocus
17. Your costume this year? None :(
18. Favorite things you like to do around Halloween time?
 I love holidays and anything theme-related, so I love decorating, carving pumpkins, reading scary stories on Nosleep... I guess that's all I can think of!
19. Would you spend the night in a haunted house (on Halloween)? All aboard the nope train!
20. Would you rather carve a pumpkin or eat pumpkin pie? Carve a pumpkin Then eat pumpkin pie for my efforts ;)

Lastly, I re-did my Frankenstein Halloween nails from last year! Here is a link to that post. It includes the video I used to recreate this manicure. :)

I hope you're all doing well and enjoy the rest of your weekends!


  1. Hey Rachel! Nice questionnaire! I also loved watching Cabin In The Woods, I watched the monster scenes over and over again. I found the movie hilarious as well as intriguing :) x

    1. Hi Su! I'm glad you liked it! Yeah the monster scenes in Cabin in the Woods are great. My favorite is the elevator scene! :D And yeah it was hilarious and intriguing! It was such a refreshing change from the redundant aspects of some horror flicks :)

  2. Love the nails! We don't celebrate Halloween in Australia, really. Big retail stores of course have been trying to push it for the last few years and sometimes in suburban areas you'll see kids out in costumes, but it's not much of a thing. Wrong time of the year for pumpkins here too. ;-)

    1. Thank you so much, Dee! I got the idea from GoldieStarling on YouTube a couple years ago and I do them every year because they're pretty easy to do and cute :) Leave it to the big retail stores to do whatever it takes to make a buck, haha. What are the biggest holidays over there?

    2. Really just Christmas and probably Australia Day in January - which I guess would be similar to your 4th of July. To be honest, we Aussies just love a public holiday for any reason. ;-)

  3. We don't really do Halloween here in Finland either, so I couldn't really answer the questionnaire... We have All Hallows Eve though and we light candles on the graves of lost loved ones. The graveyards are like seas of light, it is really beautiful! The younger crowd have Halloween parties with costumes and such. I've been to one such party, I dressed up as Death from Neil Gaiman's The Sandman! But mostly we do the spooky dressing up and a kind of trick or treat thing on Easter here in Finland.

    1. Nadja- All Hallow's Eve sounds absolutely beautiful and a lot more meaningful than giving out candy to the little ones in costumes. I have a feeling your Death costume from The Sandman was a huge hit!! Is the Easter trick or treat thing for the kids?

    1. Thank you so much, sweetheart! That means a lot to me.

  5. Your frankenstein nails are so cute! I will have to try and re-create it x

  6. Thank you kindly! I'm about to edit this post to add a link to the same manicure I did last year. It includes a link to the video I used to recreate these- it's a YouTube video by GoldieStarling. <3
