Dress to Scare

So as the Halloween season is approaching some of you may be wanting to find awesome costumes to wear out, or even add a touch of the scary to your everyday clothing. Here’s some of my favourite little halloween accessories i’ve found on Etsy.

You can find the treasury here

Under Wraps Octopus Necklace

I’ve been a fan of this shop for a while. These octopus necklaces just look so awesome! If you want to dress up as an evil mermaid or maybe poseidon then this is obviously the perfect accessory for you.

Ceramic cat necklace 

If a witch is your choice of outfit and you don’t own a black cat, why not wear this cute little necklace! This would be brilliant for halloween as well as a cute accessory all year round, especially if you’re a cat lover.

Bat Brooch

These brooches are just the cutest! The perfect halloween touch to any outfit. I think these would look awesome on a big winter coat, and would be a good accessory for any vampires this year.

Simon the black bat

Another bat but this time in necklace form. Again another perfect item for the vampires amongst you, or just an adorable necklace for those who like bats.

Pumpkin baby hat

This cute little newborn pumpkin hat is great for the families who like to get everyone involved as well as keeping the little ones nice and warm!

Halloween Gold Skull Shoe Clips

If you’re like me and have far too many shoes but want some special Halloween footwear then why not invest in some shoe clips! They wont take up as much room and can completely transform any shoes. These ones just shout ‘halloween’ with their cute skull designs and can come in 3 different colours!

Silk Skull Bowtie

If you’re a guy who likes to look smart but still wants to get into the halloween spirit then this bowtie would be perfect! I could see it being part of a skeleton/undertaker costume and it’s bound to impress at parties.

Bat Cuff Links

Another one for the well dressed man. These bat cufflinks are bound to add a touch of the scary to any suit. It’s the little details that make all the difference!

Black lace face mask

Isn’t this face mask just gorgeous?  I think this would look amazing when dressed as a gothic bride. I particularly love how you can see the eyes, but only just, which would give the outfit the perfect amount of halloween creepy-ness (or sexy-ness).

Shark Costume

Kids love to dress up and go trick or treating so we can’t forget about them! This adorable little shark costume would make any little terror truly terrifying! (or maybe just make you want to cuddle them more as they look so damn adorable!). Even better is that it’s actually a cape and so very versatile and easy to put on and off.

Halloween Brains

Obviously Zombies are ALWAYS a good choice for halloween and what do zombies love? Brains. I think this headband would look awesome whether you we’re out as a zombie or some kind of zombie victim. Just team it up with pale/green make up and lots of fake blood and you’re good to go!

Horned headdress

If you’re hosting an extravagant party and/or really want to push the boat out this year, why not use this amazing headdress. There’s so much work gone into it that it’s definitely worth the price tag (although it unfortunately doesn’t include the awesome wig as well). I can’t imagine there would be anyone not impressed by these terrifying horns.

Cat Hat with Ears

If you’ve been following this blog you already know my love of novelty hats. This hat is perfect for any cat lover or anyone who wants to become a cat for halloween. Not only is it amazingly cute but it also looks really warm!

Lion Halloween Costume

Ok, so this isn’t an accessory but you guys should know my love for Lions already. Doesn’t this little outfit just make you ‘squee’? It’s just too adorable for words.

Knitted Baby Dragon Feet

For my cousins last birthday we made the mistake of buying him some Dinosaur slippers and he spent the rest of the day roaring and stomping on EVERYTHING. I assume these cute little boots would have the same effect on small children too… Awesome for the child and for many laughs, not so good for any valuables left on the floor.

Steampunk lace collar

Again this is an item that would look amazing when dressed as a gothic bride or an evil witch. It would also look amazing paired with a plain dress for a night out. In fact I think I’m a little in love with this, it just looks so awesome!

Hopefully i’ve provided you with a little inspiration for this years halloween!

Now I just have to decide what I want to be!

I would love to see all your halloween costumes or halloween items!

‘Till next time!


Penguin Fashion

Yesterday I went into work and found that one of my bosses had a surprise for me!

It was this Penguin Hat!!

I was so excited I actually squeeled. Apparently she just had to buy it for me because it seemed so perfect! (She knows of my love for novelty hats and knows about The Penguin Theory)

I will definitely be wearing this non stop from now on.


Autumn Woodland – Treasury

The weather is getting colder now and Autumn is upon us! It’s time to wrap up warm by the fire and be glad you’re not one of those woodland creatures out in the cold. So here’s a few items to celebrate the autumn months and the cute little animals that are frolicking in the forests of england. You can find my treasury with all the items in it here there are also links to all of the items in their titles.

Little Bird Fused Glass Suncatcher

This cute little sun catcher by Lazy Daisy Glass will be perfect for bringing the autumn colours into your room and decorating your windows! A great decoration for this, or any, time of year!

acorn nature photograph

This gorgeous photograph by Shannonpix just shouts of autumn to me. Acorns, rustic wood, greens and browns. I think this would would look amazing above a log fire on a cold night.

Autumn leaf tile picture

Damson Tree Pottery makes some truly wonderful items, some of which I have my eye on for when I actually have some money (and a bigger home). This cute little tile is perfect for welcoming the autumn months into your house with those vibrant colours.

Silver birch trees Cushion covers

Another item for your home made by VeeDubz. I love the look of trees in winter and these cushion covers catch their intricacies perfectly! I can just picture my self snuggling up on the sofa with these.

Autumn Leaves Fox Glass Sculpture

This adorable glass sculpture would look amazing on any mantle piece or window sill. The autumn leaves and the running pose really gives the idea of movement to the piece and makes me imagine all the critters in the woods hurriedly foraging for food before winter sets in.

Autumn Leaf Cuff Bracelet

More leaves! And this time they are wearable. I think this cuff would look great with just a simple black dress and some matching accessories. I love the colours, all the detailing, and the fact that it just looks so delicate! Almost like real leaves! It’s the perfect statement piece this autumn.

Fall / Autumn Leaves hanging decorations

These bright and colourful decorations are bound to catch the eye of your guests who will just marvel at the details. These come in lots of other designs too so you could even buy a whole forest of them!

Custom Wedding Cake Topper

I’m sure they’ll be plenty of autumn weddings out there, so why not match the wedding to the season? This adorable cake topper is just perfect for an autumn cake. The bride and groom can be fully customised making this truly yours and then kept as a keepsake to remind you of your special day.

autumn leaves vintage Prova scarf

This vintage scarf is just gorgeous. I think it would look great with a nice thick coat. I think it’s something I could imagine both myself AND my grandma wearing! This is definitely a fashionable scarf for all ages.

Trees in Autumn original watercolour painting

This abstract print by Caroline Grigg is just gorgeous! The ‘splodgy’ (for lack of a better word) tree effect and then the details of the branches and birds really make this an interesting piece. The colours are just beautiful and make it seem really homely and warm. Again the log fire seems to compliment this item perfectly…

fox & friend brooches

These adorably, simple brooches are perfect for autumn lapels! Personally I think they would look great pinned on a fur (or faux-fur) collar. It’s a simple way to make any outfit just a little cuter.

BEAR Art Print

Who doesn’t love Bears? They look so big and cuddly, as long as you stay away from the claws!  This is another print that’s just perfect for a room with a log fire (or maybe I just really want a log fire…) I love the innocent, happy look on the bears face and it’s relaxed way of sitting. It just makes me want to relax myself and watch the world go by.

felt fox brooch

Another fox brooch for your lapels. Again this one is adorable and again I think It would go well with fur! It’s the perfect way to style up your coat (or what ever else you want to pin it to).

Knit fox hat

Apparently I can’t get enough of foxes, here’s another foxy item! Anyone that knows me knows that I LOVE my novelty hats. In fact when I was younger I had a page on a website completely devoted to my collection of hats! I think the main reason I love autumn is because I get to wear my many many headwarmers. It’s taken everything I have (and my lack of money) to stop me buying this. I honestly don’t need any more hats with ears, but yet I still want them. Someone just please buy this before I do.

Hedgehog Ring

Another Item I’ve had my eye on for a while..This absolutely adorable ring. Not only is it a cute little hedgehog, but it has an adorable little crown! It just makes me ‘Squee’ every time I look at it.

Kid’s Coin Pouch

The last item is this adorable Coin purse. It’s covered in little critters and is perfect for the young animal lover to carry around their pocket money. It even has a handy ring tab to help keep it safe!

There will be more treasuries coming soon (They’re just so much fun to make!) The next one will be Halloween Themed!

So ’till next time!

Keep working hard!
