I hope you’re not scared of blood..! I can’t believe that I’d never even considered dressing up for Halloween as my namesake, Carrie, before. As soon as the thought entered my head I knew that much fake blood would be a big commitment, but it just had to be done!
For any of you not familiar with Carrie, she’s the main character in Stephen King’s first published novel, and then the subject of several film adaptations since.
I wore my Carrie costume to the As Darkness Falls party last week, and I think I made the right choice as several people mentioned I actually scared them a little bit. This may have also been to do with the fact that I couldn’t really move my face due to the dry blood, so was stuck with this evil stare. If you happened to meet me at the party, I promise I’m usually very friendly…! At least it allowed me to stay in character…I take these things very seriously!
Halloween is always special for me, we’ve always celebrated in my house as it’s also my mum’s birthday. But today won’t involve any fake blood, as my mum is coming to visit and I’m trying on wedding dresses for the very first time. Which I think is equally as scary as any horror movie…! Wish me luck!
