Halloween 2015

Hello everyone!

Happy Halloween!! Today I'm going to be showing you my Halloween costume from last year..hehe. Maybe next year you'll get to see the costume I'm going to be wearing tonight. I'm being Sandy from Grease. Which I have actually never seen I didn't find out until later it was supposed to be based off of something so please don't judge me because I know I'm 12 and it's not really a good 12-year-old movie. :-)

I went to a friend's house for Halloween last year, and this year I'm going to a party sort of thing at a different friend's house. :)

So I was Yeomen Janice Rand from Star Trek: TOS. She's my favorite female character in the series and I was sad when she never returned after season one.

Here's a picture of her for reference:


(Now obviously, my dress wasn't that short and the neckline didn't dip down like that.) I looked online and it was almost impossible to find a Star Trek costume that wasn't from the new movies and was under $50.00.

So, I asked my mom, and she said that she would make the costume for me, just like the year before when I was Susan Pevensie from The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. She ended up having to use three different patterns to get the look I wanted for the costume. I made my own box thingy (I forget the name) that she always wears over her shoulder with a shoebox and painted it black, and then I went to Payless and bought black boots.

So here is my final costume!


I could not and would not wear my hair in that weird weave thing, so I just did a bun on the top of my head. xD

So yeah, that was my Halloween costume last year. Hope you guys enjoyed!

Recently - 7

Hello!

Sorry this Recently is a little late. I didn't have time to write a post until today.

Reading
I'm re-reading the Little House series. I know the first two books about the Ingalls family almost by heart, but I remember almost nothing about Farmer Boy and I want to read the later books in the series again, as those were some of my favorites. :)

Writing 
I'm doing NaNoWriMo this year, it's going to be my first time. I'm very excited. :) I'm going to be writing the third book in my Scarlet mystery series. Leading up to November I am still doing a lot of editing on the first book. I am really happy with it so far and can't wait to look more into publishing!

Listening To 
Good old Taylor Swift. :P

Watching 
I watched a Disney Channel show for the first time in my life, Lab Rats. I have to say it is so stupid and unrealistic to actual high school but I liked it more then I thought I would. Not a show I would watch on the regular, though. :P

Other Stuff 
I'm going to a junior high girls Bible study at my church! I'm really excited, also my friend's friend that I Skype-talk-to a lot but have only met once briefly in real life is coming, so I'll get to actually spend time with her irl :D 
It's getting much colder and we are past our peak here in New Hampshire. So excited for Autumn! It's my favorite season. :)

10 Great Sleepover Movies

Hello!

I held my first slumber party a couple days ago! I have had sleepovers with one or two friends before, but never with a bunch of people, so it was a lot of fun. :) [This was written in July, I've had a lot of other slumber parties since then. ;)] 

We watched a LOT of movies and TV shows. We didn't have a Narnia movie marathon (BOOOOO), because I wanted to wait until a couple other friends could make it as well, but we still watched some fun ones.


So, I have compiled a list of ten great movies/TV shows to watch at your next sleepover.

NARNIA
Well...yeah...duh. The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, Prince Caspian, and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader are fun because you can watch them all at once without taking up a TON of time (like with Harry Potter or something). 

ROMAN HOLIDAY 
This beautiful movie starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck is one of my absolute favorites. It's an adorable black-and-white film from 1953, and the ending is so bittersweet. 

STAR TREK 
Preferably TOS or Voyager. We watched this at my slumber party. Most of my friends weren't a fan of it (WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE), but one person got absolutely hooked! It was awesome! xD 

STATE FAIR 
This movie is a musical, so some of the songs are annoying to be honest, but it's an adorable, feel-good movie. :) 

A CHICK-FLICK
The Hallmark Original Movies are clean and really cheesy. 

THE PRINCESS BRIDE
I watched this for the first time at my slumber party, and it was so cute! I can see why it's Ted Cruz's some politician that I don't want to mention and cause controversy oh no I might offend someone by even mentioning his name (but he should have been President)'s favorite movie! There was one swear word towards the end, though. We were all shocked when we heard it. Just warning you. xD 

LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE 
I grew up on Little House - and this show has something for everyone, whether you want action or comedy or a really dramatic tear-jerking story. It all depends on the episode you watch.

NOW YOU SEE ME
I actually just mentioned this movie recently, I really enjoyed it although there was a lot of swearing. A good action-y movie. ;)

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE
To be honest this is like a better, clean version of Now You See Me. Make sure you pick out the TV show, though! That's the one I meant. Not the remake movies.

NAUSICAA OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND
Wonderful animated movie that made me tear up at the end. Tumblr-gif worthy, too, in my opinion. :3

There we go! My top 10 sleepover movies and TV shows. Hope you guys enjoyed! If you want to see more of my favorite movies (or which movies I didn't really like), you can always visit my Goodfilms here.

Have you ever watched any of these? What did you think of them?
