My Top 6 Treehouse of Horror Tales

How brilliant is The Simpsons, though? It's been a part of my life for longer than I can remember - and that is no surprise considering that it was first aired in 1989 (25 years this December?! Is that right?) I wanted to share some of my favourite Halloween themed Treehouse of Horror episodes that have stuck with me.

Episode I, Season 2: "The Raven" (1990) - I never got this one as a kid and it actually annoyed me when it was on the TV since I'd seen it a million times. Now though, as an adult with more appreciation and knowledge, I actually really enjoy this (especially the line that begins on 4:01)

Bane's Winter Coat Alternatives

Ever since I saw The Dark Knight Rises, I've wanted Bane's coat - badly. I'm not one to shy away from wearing menswear so I'll be looking at a mixture of male, female and unisex coats in the hope that I will find a worthy match.

5 Halloween Movies for Scaredy Cats #Fandom5

I do love Halloween, but I hate being scared - something that does not go hand in hand on paper. What a predicament, I hear you say, whatever do you watch? Why, animated and children's movies my dear! I've picked a selection of films that even I can sit through so they can't be that scary.

10 Reads to get in the Halloween Spirit

Halloween is fast approaching so it's time to share some books that are brilliant for this time of year; zombies, witches, and vampires from kid's books to classics. I have a bunch if these on my To-Read list and hopefully I will get round to reading them this Halloween.

Vod's Pink Skeleton Jumper Alternatives

Due to the success of my April Ludgate's Tabby Cat Jumper post I thought I would go ahead and give it another go. Recently I watched all 3 seasons of Fresh Meat and Vod is by far my favourite character in every sense. One thing I love about her is her wardrobe and one jumper in particular caught my eye (too bad I couldn't get an ace photograph of it though).

Couple Costumes I'd love to wear this Halloween #Fandom5

If I had enough friends or was cool enough to attend a Halloween party or event that required dressing up I would love nothing more than to let my inner cosplay nerd take the reins and go full on with a costume. Alas, I'm attending a wedding this year and if I turned up to the reception in any of these outfits I'd get more than one strange look.

13 More Disney Cat Names for your little Meow-er (1970's)

As my last post about cat names from the 1940's-60's went down well I thought I'd continue with a few more cat names but this time we're looking at the 1970's and this was a big time for cats (with a few foxes thrown in too) in Disney.
