for the love of all things dark + creepy + macabre

31 Oct 2015

i love halloween. i love getting spooked. i love the mysterious + supernatural. i love dressing up, telling ghost stories, and wondering about all of the things that we don’t really understand.

plus i love any reason to gather with friends and have a party.

and tonight we’re doing just that. lina and i are hosting a halloween party for our gang of friends, and we’ve promised an epic halloween celebration. oh yeah.

this is a holiday that is just beginning to grow here in sweden. so, it’s not as big of a deal here as it has been my whole life… but i can see that as each year passes, more and more people seem to get into the ghosts + ghouls mood. awesome!

in any case, lina and i are channeling all of the halloween vibes that we can muster and tonight we’ll be celebrating all hallow’s eve with our closest friends.

of course, i’ll share photos next week. but, for now, i thought i’d share some images that i’ve found that i think are just beautiful. creepy. weird. freaky. scary. disturbing. etc… everything you want to feel on this day.

    Lovely pictures! I grew up feeling the Halloween spirit all the time. I’ve always loved the 80s gothic culture. I love pictures like these, scary books, movies, and even music. Thanks for sharing your idea of creepy pictures. They are very beautiful and intriguing!

    Lovely photos and I can’t wait to see yours too! I’m one of those funny people who loves & hates to be scared, sometimes at the same time. Hoping you have a blast this Hallow’s Eve.

        We did, though not too many. Next year we are going earlier so we can enjoy more madness in the daylight. πŸ™‚

    At times I am totally into the mysteries of what I do not understand with my senses, however I am a big baby about getting scared full out though. πŸ™‚ I liked these photos a lot. The ones with the ladies were quite beautiful. Hope you had a fun party!!

      I had a blast this Halloween. Hope you did too. πŸ™‚ I know, that line between being in awe of mysteries and completely freaked out is a fine one. Hope you felt a little of both! xo
