Halloween Bone-shaker Costume

Halloween Fashion

Here is a dose of macabre fashion for Halloween.  Top designers gain inspiration from the body's bones, Rodarte's Kate and Laura Mulleavy based their spliced-and-shredded designs on exoskeletons.

Another designer, Alexa Adams said, 'Skeletons harken to the body's natural structure.'

This year the top choices for Halloween costumes are: Mermaids and Indian Jones.  This surprised Will and Guy as we prefer the more traditional ghost-sheet.

Most Creative Costume:
Mondex, a Chihuahua, wears a pirate costume during a Halloween dog show for the benefit of an animal welfare organization in Manila, capital of the Phillipines.  Mondex won the prize for the most creative costume.  See more Halloween fashion fancy dress ideas.

Halloween - The Name Behind the Funny Pictures 

Pretty much everyone agrees with the position of Halloween in the calendar, namely All Hallows Eve, October 31st.  Halloween pictures and images fall into three major categories. 

  1. Symbols of death: ghosts, skeletons, haunted houses and graveyards.
  2. Symbols of evil: witches, goblins and black cats.
  3. Symbols of harvest: pumpkins, Jack-o-Lanterns, scarecrows and corn dollies.

Other variations on the name Halloween include:

  • Hallow E'en - Ireland.
  • Hallowtide or Hallowe'en - Scotland.
  • Nos Galen-gaeof - Wales (The Night of the Winter Calends).
  • Feralia - Roman.
  • Samhain - Celts.
  • The Feast of All Soula, also Feast of the Sun.

Halloween Myths

...(videVfl2)

Halloween is the third biggest holiday for retail sales
While Americans spend an average of $75 on Halloween, they spend more on merchandise for Christmas, Mother's Day, Valentine's Day and Easter.  I find it hard to believe, but even Father's Day sales outstrip those of Halloween.

Psychic Predicts Campus Murders at Halloween
This an interesting phenomenon because it repeats every 3 years.  The gist of the myth is that a psychic on a radio or obscure T.V. show predicts that a madman is going to murder students and Halloween.  There is no truth in this myth which started in 1968, it's neat because after 3 years each campus will have a new batch of students who have never heard of the hoax.

A suicide was mistaken as a Halloween decoration. 
The incident occurred just before Halloween in 2005 in Frederica Delaware.  Unfortunately this is a true story.  Indeed it illustrates the problem with dismissing all hoaxes and myths, because about 25% turn out to be true.
