And probably only 2 weeks really till Halloween parties and celebrations galore, because we all know that the Friday and Saturday will be when things happen.
Now the time you should be thinking about your costume and making plans. So I’ve decided to conduct a little round up of 10 things you can do to get ready for a Halloween with a vintage twist.

Before I go, just a little reminder that Retro Chick has opened a small Vintage Homewares section. To start with all items are on auction, most with 99p start prices and they finish on SUNDAY!
In the future I’ll be trying to keep a small selection of china and other goodies available to Buy It Now.
Got the 1932 version of The Mummy a year or so ago. Great film, but it still gives me nightmares sometimes! The Bride of Frankenstein was on BBC4 earlier this week too. Nosferatu (1922) is a great vintage vampire flick as well – very scary!
I think it’ll be the Halloween recipes and cocktails for our child orientated celebration (cocktails for the parents).
That and dressing the kids up ready for trick or treaters.
I’ve got a load of Universal horror films on video. The Black Cat and The Raven are two that aren’t seen very often, but are extremely good. Freaks (not a Universal) is genuinely unsettling.
I love cobwebs and plastic spiders. You can do awesome things with them.
no, no Halloween in this house, Birthday celebrations only :o)
fantastic post and fantastic blog! I have no costume parties to attend this year alas but I think halloween cocktails and vintage horror movies will fit the bill!
Loving those cocktails! I am not sure what to do this year..definitely going to make some ghoulish cupcakes for the trick or treaters though! x
Good ideas all round! x
Love hearing everyones Halloween plans!
And suggestions for vintage horror movies much appreciated. Somewhere I have a box set of 100 vintage horror films, must dig it out!
