October Series: Halloweeneeneeneeneen

Did I scare you?
Watch out...I may steal your you should be scared!

Welcome to the wickedly spooky, scary, screamy (screamy?) October! I love this time of year, and I go crazy for Halloween! I'm not necessarily ever successful at Halloween - I usually figure out a really great costume on November 3rd, think about it all year, cloud my brain with a thousand other equally creative plans, manage to forget all of them by October 29th, and then claim to be any redheaded character from any movie ever (I leave it up to you to choose who I'm "dressed up" as). Total cop out. The great thing about Halloween, though, is that your candy consumption is not dictated by your costume cleverness. I still eat all the candy. All. The. Candy.

Ginger Soup for the Actor's Soul does Halloween, and Taylor Hastings shows off her best Halloween costumes.
I was a lot more successful with costumes when my mom was in charge...

Last Halloween, I was living almost directly on a graveyard. Prior to moving in, I had started watching The Walking Dead...big mistake. It stopped me from leaving my house a few times, and I haven't been able to revisit that show in a while. Then, in a burst of Joss Whedon fandom, I started watching Buffy...also a big mistake for a low-tolerance-for-scary-things-girl living on a graveyard. Needless to say, I was a little jumpy and not delving into anything haunting last season. But!! I have moved! Into a very wholesome neighbourhood, where there are no dead people hanging out in the "park". So this year, I'm all in!

So on Ginger Soup this month, you can expect to find everything from actor "horror stories", to favourite scary moments on TV and in movies, to where to catch the best Halloween related local shows and's going to be a - wait for it - MOoOoOoNSTER MASH! (It's so hard to type in scary voices...but I think you can work that one out!).

Join us for a verrrry, spoooooky and fun-filled month at Ginger Soup for the Actor's Soul - and get ready for one helluva Halloween!!!
