Judit’s Halloween Favorite Film: Hocus PocusWhen a teenager resurrects three witches he and an immortal cat are the only thing that can save the town. The three witch sisters Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy make Hocus Pocus a fun little movie that can’t be taken too serious, but is still a little scary.
Corina’s Favorite Halloween Film: Practical MagicSandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman are sisters who have to fight a strange curse that every man who falls in love with them is doomed. It is a result of witchcraft and the sisters try to break the curse and have some spooky adventures along the way. Practical Magic is a cute movie any time, but it is especially great to watch around Halloween with the lights low and a few candles.
Corina’s Friday Favorites: Halloween CostumesAs you might guess Halloween is my favorite fun holiday! This year I was a Bavarian Día de Muertos – the dirndl came from my very own closet and I was glad to have so many odd colors in my makeup kit since they came in handy. For the face I used silver eyeshadow all over and blue eyeliner for the details. The flowers came from Judit’s vase and did double duty as a headdress. This costume was a hit at a party two Halloween’s ago and I loved it so much I decided to do the Bavarian Día de Muertos again. Don’t you think I did a slightly better job this year?
