Fandom Friday: Halloween Must Sees!

This Fandom Friday post is brought to by the letter N, for (The) Nerdy Girlie, and the letter S for Super Space Chick. And by readers like you
 Today's post is about my Halloween MUST SEES!!! Halloween Movies? Not all. BUT, these movies are one's I love to watch once October rolls around! And, all of them fit into the horror genre...albeit, loosely!

Without further ado, the list!:

5). The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Tim Curry singing? Susan Sarandon in her nicest character? Time Warp? Heck yeah! I love to see this every mischief night (October 30th for me...Thank you, Rocket Power!)! It's perfectly menacing for this night too! Also, this year I have an extra special lippy to wear thanks to Kim at A Very Sweet Blog ! I'm so excited to see it! While it is a musical that could be seen any time of year, I always make sure I watch it in October as well! (Rated HSM: Horror-Silly-Musical...and a bit naughty too).

4). It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
I love the Peanuts holiday shorts, cartoons, comic strips, and Knott's Berry Farm! I love how cute they are and Snoopy's shenanigans! But when I was a kid, we had a VHS full of Peanuts cartoons and this was the first one on the video! I tried to make The Great Pumpkin happen in our house. TGP is like Santa, for Halloween. Only Linus believes in him, and he thinks Santa hogs all the glory while TGP is short changed. It's cute, and at less-than 30-minutes, you always have time to see this in October! (Rated H4F for: "Horror" for the whole Family...and big kids like your's truly)

3). Young Frankenstein
Mel Brooks!
Gene Wilder!
Madeline Kahn!
Do I really need to say more? Well I will! Cause growing up there were a few thing we knew to be implicit, and one of those things was: "It's Good to Be The King!" and Mel Brooks is the king of HILARIOUS! In this particular Brooks' film, we see the grandson of Mary Shelley's Doctor Frankenstein played by Wilder...who calls himself: Dr. Frankenstein...pronounced "frahnk-en-steeeen" so as to disassociate himself from his lunatic grandfather. And yet,--as all movies have taught us--he is doomed to repeat his fore-father's mistakes! Also, they made a musical of this (and of Blazing Saddles, Brooks' AMAZING western!). So, all I'm saying is, be sure to watch this. It's great any time of year! (Rated HH for: Hilarity-over-Horror with a monster and music number)!

2). Hocus Pocus
via (seriously, check this out...it's awesome!)

When I think of Halloween, I think of Sarah Jessica, Kathy, and of course, the The Divine Miss M:
BETTE MIDLER!!!! I consider this to be the quintessential Halloween Movie! Heck, there's even a black cat that talks (whose human form is on NCIS, and voice actor is the AMAZING Jason Marsdon)!! Also--on a really cool side note--Omri Katz was in a wonderfully creepy (or should I say eery?) show called Eerie, Indiana that used to play on TV, and, was like a young folks Twilight Zone/X-Files!!! (Here's an episode!)
(Rated HHDC for: Halloween Horror Disney Classic) 

1). The Nightmare Before Christmas
Typical...I'm sure, but one of the main reasons this movie wins is the fact that this is the Holiday Season movie! Come September 30, you can watch this movie all the way through January 6 (Three Kings' Day). That's right! It's a Halloween through Christmas movie!!! The movie even goes through Thanksgiving! So, because it's a movie that can be watched not just one, not just two, but for at least three months, well, as a Holiday lover, it makes me happy! Also: the artwork is phenomenal. It's aesthetic theme is not only consistent, but well executed. It's stop motion, and yearns towards a simpler time. It's stop-motion, and required so much care in it's work and execution. Danny Elfman  sings. The songs are AMAZING! And: Zero!!! (Rated MHFHC for: Multi-Holiday Family Horror Classic)

Those are my 5 Halloween Must Sees!
 Honarable mentions:
Paranorman; Shaun of the Dead; The Addams Family; The Craft; Buffy the Vampire Slayer (YES! the movie!); Interview With the Vampire; The Witches; and, Casper!

What are your Halloween Must Sees?

Fandom 5 Friday: This is Halloween--Nerd Style!

This Fandom Friday post is brought to by the letter N, for (The) Nerdy Girlie, and the letter S for Super Space Chick. And by readers like you!

This week's Fandom Friday is based around characters you'd love to dress up as for Halloween!
To be honest my five are comprised of my all time dream costumes--including when I was a kid!
And with that we begin!

1). Catwoman (Batman Returns)

Since I was a in elementary school and I saw this movie I have want to be this version of Catwoman (check out Tim Burton's concept sketch here)! She's sexy, fierce, and so stinking bad-a$$! Also, like Indiana Jones, home-girl wields a whip! (OK, I'm seriously about to watch this movie cause it's so effing awesome)

2). Cerise Hood (Ever After High)

Cerise is my fave from Ever After High...mostly cause she has cute boots! I would LOVE to dress up as her! She'd scare any Big Bad Wolf away! Also, this wouldn't be too hard to put together for Halloween! And her SDCC exclusive version was so effing awesome! I want to Cosplay as that for a con! (PS: shout out to Usagi from Usagi in Wonderland! She knows why!).

3). Pinkie Pie (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic)

Pinkie Pie is the life of...no, strike that! Pinkie Pie IS the party! That, and I love 4th-Wall-Breakers! 'Nough said!

4). Rilakkumma (by San-X)

I can't! That little face is so effing adorable! I'm so addicted to San-X (and Sanrio too) for just, sheer adorableness! It's so much cute, I can't help but smile! Also, there's this kigurumi so it can function as a warm winter wear! It looks super cozy.

5). Tinker Bell (Peter Pan)

Like Catwoman, I've wanted to be Tinkerbell for Halloween! But I've wanted to be her for even longer.

What about you? What are your top five Halloween costumes...for this year? ;)
