Dolcetto o Scherzetto? Si, ma un bel film?!

Eccoci al giorno più atteso di Ottobre in cui i bambini, e non solo, si travestono per andare a fare “Dolcetto o Scherzetto” in giro per le case del quartiere. Ma non ci sono solo dolcetti o scherzetti in questa notte da paura, perché c’è sempre spazio per un pò di cinema!

Tutti gli amanti del cinema sanno che in occasioni speciali c’è sempre qualche bel film a tema da rispolverare dalla proprio libreria, digitale o non. In questo articolo vi elencherò 5 film a tema Halloween perfetti per una nottata di buon cinema e schifezze varie da addentare.

  1. Hocus Pocus
    Diretto nel 1993 da Kenny Ortega per la Walt Disney questa piccola perla, ripresa da un’infanzia anni 90, non può mancare. Con un cast strepitoso (Kathy Najimy, Bette Midler e Sarah Jessica Parker) questo film vi trascinerà direttamente in un’atmosfera spaventosa ma anche esilarante, con costumi eccezionali che hanno fatto vincere un bel Saturn AwardMary E. Vogt. Complimenti!
  2. Crimson Peak
    Per chi apprezza gli horror dal palato sopraffino vi consiglio questa pellicola, co-scritto e diretto da Guillermo del Toro, che racconta le vicende di un’aspirante scrittrice che dopo aver vissuto esperienze soprannaturali, vive un triangolo amoroso tra il suo più caro amico di infanzia e un giovane straniero. Tutto questo condito da scene thriller-horror molto drammatiche. Io l’ho apprezzato moltissimo.
  3. The Horror Rocky Picture Show
    Diretto da Jim Sharman, questo film è una pietra miliare del genere cult, ripreso  dallo spettacolo teatrale del 1973. Ancora oggi è considerato fuori dagli schemi per come trattò argomenti a tema sessuale con ruoli eterosessuali, bisessuali e il travestitismo vengono esibiti in un’allegoria pronta a stravolgere i ruoli effimeri imposti dalla società. Veramente unico!
  4. Beetlejuice
    In questa pellicola del 1988, in cui è presente uno strabiliante Michael Keaton, seguiremo le vicende di una famiglia deceduta e trasformata in una famiglia di fantasmi. Questo film rappresenta l’inquietudine che, secondo me, la notte di Halloween porta con se.
  5. Nightmare Befor Christmas
    E ultimo ma non meno importante, per far contento anche la mia dolce metà, un’altra chicca di Tim Burton. Questo film è senza dubbio l’emblema estetico della festività di Halloween che, tra personaggi grotteschi e dolcetti che i farebbero venire le carie solo e vederli, l’atmosfera diventa incantata grazie alla bellissima voce di Renato Zero.

Questi erano i miei 5 film a tema Halloween che penso possano farvi passare una bella serata, in compagnia ma anche da soli. Lasciate un commento per dirmi la vostra e…

BUON HALLOWEEN!!!!

Come sempre spero che questo articolo vi sia piaciuto, a presto.

Lush Halloween Colletion 2017.

Come sempre Lush non si smentisce e per ogni occasione sforna prodotti nuovi.

Nella nuova collezione Halloween 2017 offre una tavolozza di colori stupendi, passando dal rosa glitter dello spumante da bagno Pink Pumpkin, al lilla del mostriciattolo Monster’s ball. Anche quest’anno ritorna il verdissimo Lord of Misrule (sia in versione bomba da bagno che crema da doccia) e la zucca glitter arancione Sparkly Pumpkin, la mia preferita in assoluto.

Tra “spumeggianti” new entries troviamo lo spumante da bagno Bewitched realizzata a muso di gatto, e la jelly bomb Ectoplasm che trasformerebbe l’acqua in gelatina colorata.

Bisognerebbe provarle tutte!

Le labbra per me sono importantissime, e a quanto pare Lush ha pensato pure a me, con dei nuovi prodotti chiamati Black Rose. Un rossetto nero che a contatto con le labbra diventa rosa intenso, un balsamo labbra e uno scrub labbra solido. Sempre a base nera c’è anche il sapone Magic Wand che nasconde al suo interno un brillante arancione zucca. Mentre per l’idratazione del corpo c’è Goth fairy, oleoso e brillantinato.

Infine per questa collezzione di Halloween un knot wrap con un teschio realizzato sopra il packaging e chiamato Rainbow Skull, insieme a due regali Bewitched e Little Pumpkin, un altro sapone Hedgewitch e una bomba da bagno a forma di zucca intagliata Pumpkin.

Tutto assolutamente delizioso e profumatissimo, Direi che a questo punto un salto in negozio è obbligatorio, no?

Come sempre spero che questo articolo vi sia piaciuto, a presto.

October is gone!!!!

Another of my favorite months is gone! But before we begin November I would like to tell 14962487_1350079468336507_2068365023_n.jpgyou about my Halloween! I started packing my things, in my beautiful Fiorelli’s backpack that I bought from Asos, to go to Caterina’s house.

It is very comfortable and elegant, usually I use it to go to the Accademia.

When I arrived at Caterina’s house we ate something and did some shopping. We went to buy food and decorations for the party, and when we come back we prepared us for the Halloween party!

When we ate some snacks we found a beautiful bar with Halloween decorations and desserts like little ghosts or this rectangular cookies, that I never saw before!

When we returned at home I helped Caterina to prepared her costume.

And we found in her wardrobe a long pink dress to make the costume of a Greek statue, and we decided our makeup.

And now there is my costume!!!!

Saturday!

Yesterday was the birthday of my little sister Ginevra! We went for lunch to my grandmother’s house and then we ate the cake! Usually when we celebrate a birthday, when we sing the “happy birthday”, Max barks every time! He is so cute!!!!

The cake was a profitterol with the cream around. It is not my favorite cake but it was good. Unfortunately we were not all because my mother had left at work the day before, but we still had fun!

Then we went home and I started working on the mac, listening Closer by The Chainsmokers and Halsey. I am very happy to have finished my last job. The cards for a Halloween party! Then in the evening I went to Caterina’s house, one of my best friends, to stay with her. Usually when I came to Caterina’s house we watch some movies or play some games. Last night we played to Disney Trivial and my favorite character is Mickey!

Then the other day my father came back from Mexico City and and he brought a book of the the Museum of Anthropology.

My costume for Halloween!!!!

At the beginning of the month I started thinking about my costume for Halloween! My first idea was dressing as a fawn, I made the horns and wrote some outfit ideas, but I could not accomplish anything. So I will use my second option, a “modern remake” of the Phantom of the Opera!

So the other day I went to the mall with my love and we found this beautiful underwear shirt from Zara, so I created an outfit around this one, and I really like it!

The whole outfit consists of a pair of pants from Calzedonia, that I bought some months ago, but unfortunately never used. It’s one of those things that you have kept in the closet forever! Then I combined this gorgeous brassière from Asos with this laces that arrive to the neck.

For the shoes I will use these black boots from Asos!

For the mask I’ll show you how I did with this DIY:
First I bought this simple golden mask and cut it in half, then with a black marker I drew an arrow on the left eye. Then I took two nail polishes, one gold and the other silver.

And I painted the arrow!!!!

And this is the final look, It is very simple to realize and has a very peculiar effect. I enjoyed it very much and I hope it will inspire you with your Halloween costume!

To the Beach!!!!

A day at the beach!

Today, my boyfriend and I went to the beach, and had lunch there. I ate pasta with zucchini and it was really good.

Then Enrico, my boyfriend, began looking for the masks for our Halloween costumes. At the moment, the idea is this: I am a revisited modern version of the Phantom of the Opera, while he is the classic version. Work in progress!

My outfit today was quite casual and comfortable . My casual jacket by Gap and the jeans by Jennyfer, a pair of blue shoes by New Balance and then my beloved black bag by Calvin Klein.

Then it began to rain quite heavily, so we went searching for a shelter and we set down on a bench and we waited for the end of the rain.

Halloween is coming!!

October is one my favourite months of the year after July and August. It’s the month of warm colours like red, orange and brown. It’s also time to throw away summer clothes and put on some nice warm sweaters and last but not least is the month of Halloween!!!!

I love creating Carnival costumes or party themes, but Halloween is really special to me. I’ve always loved the horror tales and the stories of fantastic creatures, to the point that I believed them to be true.

I’ve watched several movies about them, and especially about vampires. They are, to me, the most fascinating creatures, able to bend any human being to their will, which intrigues me very much. Truth be told, vampires in movies take many roles: in Nosferatu (1922), vampires are represented only as blood-sucking monsters. In Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992), the vampire is a seducer above anything else. In the Underworld saga, vampires are hunters of other creatures. And then there’s my absolute favourite: Dracula Untold!!!!

Vlad-and-Mirena-dracula-untold-37662601-500-313.jpg

In this movie, one of my personal favourites of all time, there’s what I believe to be the best characterization of Dracula. He’s a prince who vows to protect his kingdom from the Turks at all costs, even selling his own soul to the devil. But alas, in doing that, he loses everything. This movie’s Dracula is different from the previous ones: even though he becomes a beast, his immeasurable love for Mirena/Mina is what makes him human, which is something that I loved to see.

But back to Halloween, I wanted to tell my idea of outfit for this year. For this Halloween I decided to dress like a fawn. I have already made my horns and I’ll tell you how I made them.

First of all I took the tinfoil as a base for the horns. Then I used hot glue to shape it and to create the texture of the horn. After a while, when they completely dried, I painted them with brown spray can. Then I took a lot of fake flowers and glued them with hot glue on a hairband. That’s it!

And for the outfit of the costume I drew this sketch. I chose these colors to remind the autumn forest and because they are my favorite.
