Hi there all my fellow raisers of Hades!
Gotcha another bonus post for the spooktacular month of October!! Since Halloween is just around the corner, I’ve collaborated with Jen from the blog Betties N Brimstone who also has an Etsy shop – HellRazor! She contacted me and asked if I would like her to send me some of her RAD handmade and vintage goodies, and OF COURSE I said “YES!” So, as promised, Jen sent me some super cool stuff from her shop and I’m gonna show it to you!
I don’t know about you, but Halloween colors have always been my very favorite since I was just a little girl. If anyone asked me my favorite color probably from the time I was about 3, I would respond with “Puh-ple, owange, and gween!!” Maybe it’s because my birthday is so close to the holiday…who knows. I have just always loved those three colors. They have changed in hue over the years, but still have remained pretty darn constant. Now that I’ve told you all that, I’m not sure it really has anything to do with this post. hahaha…I guess I just thought you needed to know that. Just some more useless info about me…
But anyway, I cannot dress up for Halloween at work. It would be highly frowned upon if I were suddenly called in to court to testify with a green face and a big wart on my nose. I am also not into the holiday sweaters. If you are, more power to ya, but I would like a more subtle touch to my outfit to represent. Well as you might have guessed, Hell Razor Art is perfect for doing just that!! Jen is totally bad ass and makes some screamingly fabulous Halloween-ish hair flowers/pins, but also some fun Pyrex planner stickers (designed by her), and sells some vintage jewels. Below, I have pictures of how I’ve styled some things she gave me:
This is a sugar cat skull flower pin–can also be worn as a hair clip but I have a teeny head and it would look ridiculous. It would be super cute at the top of a pony tail, but as you can see, I don’t have enough hair for that. My daughter, however, does. She has already laid claim on this thing and I’m not sure I will be able to get it out of her tightly clenched little paws.

As you can see, it’s totally adorable in a creepy way and it would add a perfect spooky little flair to your otherwise non-Halloween-costume-work appropriate outfit.
Pretty cute, ain’t he?
I dare you to try not to look at this next one. I mean it. Don’t.
See?!? I told you not to!! Even though it’s a big giant eerie eyeball pin, it’s still kinda adorable at the same time. I like it.
Here it is with the entire ensemble. I think you definitely need one of these.
The next two items aren’t as ghoulish as the first two, but nonetheless, pretty freakin’ rad. But you can’t have them, bc I took the only ones. :/
Stitched heart necklace pendant with white beaded chain
Below is a much more accurate depiction of the color of the necklace. For some reason it didn’t show up well in the picture above. And also, take notice of the adorable little Pyrex dishes stickers!! You know you want those cuties for your planner!! I, for one, am obsessed with stickers, planners, notebooks, etc…
and lastly, the pretty beaded necklace and earrings you see in the picture above. I struggled with how I wanted to style them. But after the struggle was over, I really like how the outfit turned out.
How would you have styled this necklace??
I also normally don’t match my earrings with my necklace because, I don’t know, I always tend to like non-matchy asymmetrical looks. But I put them together this time and actually like it.
As I so pompously stated before, the necklaces/earrings aren’t available because they are one of a kind. However, Jen still has some cute jewelry left in her shop. You’ll have to go see for yourself though.
Ok, so run, don’t walk to HellRazor Art Etsy shop. If you don’t, you will be labeled a Halloweenie and will have a curse put on you. I’m not even kidding.
Don’t look now, but I think someone is chasing you. You better get over to HellRazor right now…
