Good Golly Miss Miley!


“I hated Shirley. Not because she was cute, but because she danced with Bojangles, who was my friend, my uncle, my Daddy, and who ought to have been soft-shoeing it and chuckling with me. Instead he was enjoying, sharing, giving a lovely dance thing with one of those little white girls whose socks never slid down under their heels."
Toni Morrison, The Bluest Eye

This is Halloween

Hey! Hey! How was your halloween??


I was Wednesday Addams. What did you go as? :)

Oxford is so ye olde hogwarts, the perfect halloween backdrop.



Which meant all my outfit pics turned out like this:


And this:



I love it! With my dark hair and insanely pale skin looking like a nightmare comes quite naturally. Which is powerful and lovely. People make faces and go urghh at my body, at my face, on days when I feel quite ordinary. So it feels cathartic to actually acknowledge and exploit that.

Other people's costume at the party I went to that night were super smart and cool.

Like this one:



It's a man in a box!! Omg, wut is this, optical illusion, ded.

And two friends of mine went as Kimye.

Look what they brought to stand in for their bb:



(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

We also carved pumpkins on actual halloween night.
So I should have precious picz to show you how aRTistic i am.
 Especially coz I made a pikachu one 
omg so cute! 
NO
actually no
 you haven't seen how gross these photos are.

Like the actual process of pumpkin carving is insanely horrific:



Oh, y'kno, just gouging Pikachu's eyes out nbd.

And then um the final result, was kinda um...



terrifying?

So yes update on my life: my childhood has been reduced to an icky pumpkin corpse. But at least I look adorably repulsive in halloween get up?

Yeah, um, I don't know you guys, I can't even....

I really hope you are good tho, that your days are well and happy, that you are eating good food and are loved by good people.

Love always,

Bethany
