Halloween Hop Answers

Many Thanks to Jeremy Bates for hosting The Halloween Hop again this year!!!

For costume: I dressed up as Velma (again) complete with orange turtleneck sweater, a reddish skirt, orange socks, and my regular black glasses. (My hair is bob length these days too, but I don't have bangs). At the Halloween party I went to on Saturday night, people recognized me as Velma - so I call that a success!

For favorite monster movie: Well, I still consider Monster, Inc. of Disney fame my favorite, but if you are looking for scary, I like Aliens the best. Jurassic Park is good too. Basically, if there's a scifi element to it, and some scary (but not too scary) creatures, then I'm more likely to watch it.

Signs gave me nightmares, and the whole barely seeing the alien thing hit me hardest months later when I was driving down my long, gravel driveway at night and saw movement in the trees. (It was a racoon, I think). So, basically, I'm a bit of a wuss when it comes to scary movies.

I just like to hang out with Jeremy and all the other cool Halloween hoppers with nerves of steel.

This Friday: Come back and sign up for Hobbit Fest!
Ongoing: I'm still looking for a few good hosts for my book blog tour. See the page on the top right.

I love that you went as Velma, I hope you pretended to lose your glasses at least once, jinkies!

Bet you're cuter than Velma!
People forget that Signs was really creepy and effective. It was the director's last good film.

I love being scared, until I am.

That's awesome you went as Velma for Halloween!

And Signs is a scary movie. The theories in it about aliens made way too much sense.

Laura - Thanks! I forgot to pretend to lose my glasses, but I did remember Jinkies!

Alex - aww, thanks! I think movies like Signs, where the aliens/scary monsters aren't truly revealed until the end of the movie are often the scariest. Our fear of the "what might be in the dark" is far greater than the fear of anything we can see (most of the time).

Teresa - I know what you mean. :-)

Cherie - Thanks! And I agree. Signs was seriously creepy.

Hobbit fest??? Awesome.

I love that you are Velma. So fun!

I've always loved Monsters Inc too and Jurassic Park scared the *bleep* out of me when I saw it in the theatre the first time. It was brilliant!!


Tyrean Martinson said...

PK - Thanks! I thought Jurassic Park was brilliant too!

Angie said...

Yeah, I don't like watching scary movies at all! I'd love to see pics of your Velma costume!

Velma sounds like a great choice. Who doesnt love Scooby Doo? Im not a big fan of scary, Monster House and Coraline are more than enough for me! I love Monsters Inc too.

I LOVE Monsters, Inc. I cannot wait for the next one to come out - every time I see a preview I get excited!

Awesome monster pick!

Angie - I might let someone in my house take pictures of me in the Velma costume . . .but I'm not sure.

Kate - Scooby Doo is awesome!

S.L. - me too. Thanks!
