B – movie Halloween

Here in Croatia we usually don’t celebrate Halloween because we have our own masquerade parties in February, but if we have excuse to dress up in costumes two time in one year – why not ๐Ÿ˜‰ ?

ย The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1. They believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31 they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth.

Irish immigrants fleeing Irelandโ€™s potato famine of 1846, helped to popularize the celebration of Halloween in USA. Taking from Irish and English traditions, Americans began to dress up in costumes and go house to house asking for food or money, a practice that eventually became todayโ€™s โ€œtrick-or-treatโ€ tradition.

I’m a big fan of 40s and 50s B (B standing for a low budget) horror movies, especially of those which are so campy that you and up laughing instead of being scared, but tonight we plan to spend the evening watching our favorite B Horror flick made in 70s- Rocky Horror Picture Show, favorite midnight movie in USA for last 40 years.
And if you need some inspiration, one of our favorite geek sites, Loot Crate, who offers monthly subscription boxes,ย  has a great space Invasion crate, do check it out!
Hope you’ll enjoy the pictures ๐Ÿ˜‰

“I am Catwoman. Hear me roar.”

The night crept over the Gotham City calmly like a silken scarf. From the distance, rhythmical clacking of the city subway echoes, blended between the sounds of police sirens, chaos of the traffic jams and barks of strayed dogs. Fumes of the factories, the smog, the waste and the thick led sky. This, is my city; this is my jungle. For all of you who might not know, the name is Selina… Selina Kyle. Who am I actually? Perhaps you caught a glimpse of me in your wildest fantasies… and your most hidden fears. Because this is my jungle. And in that jungle, I am the meanest cat of them all. I am โ€“ the Catwoman; hear me roar!

Rocky Horror

Today โ€“ an homage to one of my favourite movies โ€“ The Rocky Horror Picture Show. If some crazy scientist would approach me with an idea of time travelling, I would tell him without any hesitation: โ€žTake me to the 70s, pretty please!!โ€œ All that over-the-top glam, outfits, men and women in satin, jewelry and make up โ€“ I absolutely love it! Rocky Horror is a true example of mid-70s glam. But behind all the make-up, platforms, and cross-dressing outfits, are extraordinary music performances, which are still amazing as they were almost 40 years ago!
