Halloween by Cristian Grossi.
I’m not going to write much about Halloween this year because I think I pretty much said it all last time around. And I’m knackered. All I will say is: this year I reckon it’s all about the nail art. Go on, just search twitter and marvel at all that effort: bloody drips, ghouls, stylish matte black, candy stripes, zombie brains, skeletons, spiders, bogey green and pumpkin orange. In the absence of professional nail art contributions I instead give you my crabby claws. Oh and illustrator Claire Kearns shows off her rather more dramatic glittery spider webs. Are you in on the act yet?
This Me & Zena Revenge of the Eyeball ring grabbed my attention at press days last week. Grab yours for a special Halloween price of £22.40 now.
I’m also loving uber cute Halloween outfits for babies. For obvious reasons. Next year I really will get him dressed up good and proper. Here’s my illustrated Halloween blog with a few spookish things to do thrown in, enjoy!
Trick Or Treat by Becca Thorne. The HOWLERWEEN DOG PARADE was held on Sunday 28 October in Lincoln Inn Fields. After the parade visitors went on a guided Ghost Dog Walking Tour to hear tales of the human and canine ghosts that roam London’s dark streets.

Call us if you get lost or stuck outside the gates, we are always there.’ Between 6.30-9pm on Weds 31st October.
