Skull patterned ribbon, around 2USD...
Here's more ribbon that I bought for 2USD. It's white with letters printed that describe Halloween and little red blood splatters. I haven't found a use for this yet, but it was so adorable I had to get it! I think I'll use a strip of it around the handle of my suitcase so that I can easily identify it when pulling it off the baggage carousel, but I don't know what else to do with it. Hair ornaments, maybe?
This was my favorite thing I bought, personally. Michael's is currently selling little unpainted balsa wood coffin boxes for 1USD each and they're perfect for storing little things in and giving a little DIY attention to. This might be something that I buy more of before I leave because I like it so much. This one is plain black, but you can see the potential for other designs. Beetlejuice stripes! Bats! Skulls! The possibilities are endless.
To keep the coffin from being too boring, I lined it with black and white damask flocked scrapbook paper. I still need to clean off the paint from the hinges and clasp, though....
Another really cute thing I bought was this "Spooky!" pillow for 12USD. I think this is going to be coming with me to Scotland because it's relatively light (it can fit in my travel bag) and gives a tiny touch of spookiness to my drab, drab dorm room. There was also one that said "Happy Halloween!" on it but, as I'm sure I've stated before, I try to avoid Halloween branded things when shopping around Halloween time out of personal preference.
Also, I posted this picture to my Tumblr already, but I think this is one of my favorite outfits as of late. Here's the rundown:
Jacket, socks: Camden
Overskirt, underskirt: Fanplusfriend
Ankh necklace: Otakon 2010
So, readers, have you gotten anything for Halloween yet?
