I like my holidays like I like my fiction: 
sweet, sexy, dark, and bursting with bloody fun.

What do you mean All Hallow’s Eve, the eve of El Dia de los Muertos, Halloween, Samhain or whatever you call it, is not sweet? What’s sweeter than a day when you can be wear your I’m-so-sexy-for-this-world outfit, top it with your pointy hat, grab your broom and a few ghosts, then go knock on strangers’ houses, threatening them with mischief if they don’t give you candy? 

Yep, saccharine!

This All Hallow’s Eve I want to celebrate the wicked sweet beauty of grim things. I’ve been thinking about this party for a few weeks, but I didn’t make the decision until I met the Spirit, the star of All Hallow’s Grim. I emailed Sunshineshelle right after her mind birthed this creepy loveliness, and introduced her to the world on a Party Paint Friday post. Then I found out Spirit had been taken off her hands faster than anyone could shriek “spook!”.

But Fate is not always rotten… Spirit was adopted by Craftymoose Crafts, and her new mama was thrilled to let her come out and scare. She also sent Esme, Spirit’s witchy dolly sister. And Primitive looked so sad that Spirit convinced her mama to let her come too. Now Pagan Culture is full of spirit, witches and wicked grins; trust me, Primitive is all giggles and smirks too, she is just a heck of a witch, and knows how to hide facial expressions.     
                          Esme                                                  Spirit                                                 Primity

Spirit, her witchy sisters, and your Wicked Witch Writer, are freaking delighted to invite every Wicked Darling to Pagan Culture’s 1st Annual All Hallow’s Grim Blog Party!

To confirm your attendance, you must:
   1. Leave a comment on this post (include your blog address).
   2. Add the All Hallow’s Grim Party button to your blog’s sidebar.
   3. Publish your party posts before midnight, on October 13, 2011.

Spread the word, my luvs, and let the All Hallow’s Grim muse work for you. My contribution will be a short story (or three). I would love to read posts about scary books, bloody movies, creepy situations, ghastly ancestors (dead ones only, we’ll have a different party for the ones who still breathe), frightening objects (better if possessed by ghastly ancestors), myths, recipes, amazing graveyards, spells, chilling visual art, songs, rituals, and if you want the witchy writer in me to go nuts with ecstasy, write a short story inspired by All Hallow’s Eve. 


Edited 9/12/2011
Email me (magalyguerrero @ live . com) a link to your post as early at 12:13am on Oct 12th or as late as 12:13am Oct 14th. Links to your All Hallow’s Grim Party post will remain on my sidebar until 5:13pm Oct 16th, by which time I hope to have haunted all of your cyber homes.

P.S.: If you wake up to the pupiless glow of a grinning ghostly girl, don’t be afraid; it is Spirit reminding you not to be late with your post. Oh, and if you hear witchy chanting, then her sisters are probably there too. They don’t glow… usually.

    ooh! I adore Hallowe'en and simply cannot wait! I know my blog has been quite -er- dead but so much has been going on and this is an opportunity I do not want to miss out on! I'll be adding the button just as soon as I get over to my own blog since I saw this originally from facebook :D

    ReplyDelete
  2. Aieee, this is exciting!  I've never done a blog party before, but I'm totally in!  I'm going to write a story, although first I will have to find my writer's hat.

    Off to post your button!

    ReplyDelete
  3. Yay girly! I've missed  you. A dead blog is purrrfect for the occasion ;-) Don't forget to leave me the link to the blog you want me to list on my sidebar.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Your call. Like I said on the post, "Let your All Hallow's Grim muse" do her thing. Of course, coming from you, I expect a sexy, dark and bloody story that speaks of the holiday and human nature.

  30. Yay! Night of the Living (super cute) Gecko. I can't wait to see it ;-) Maybe it can be friends with one  (or all) of Stacy's crows.

    PS In Pumpkin mode ;) happening yep, witchy pumpkins & frog... stay tuned ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. She looks like she was meant to do this, doesn't she? I think she put the idea in my head. 

    And I'm chewing on my toenails (already went through my fingernails) thinking about "witchy pumpkins and frog..."

    Spirit  is intriguing !!!  Her mama is special indeed that brought her to life

    ReplyDelete
  38. Not being "a writer" is no reason not to party. You are an artist, a blogger and you create some wonderful witchy things. I, for instance, would love to know what goes through your mind when you make your witchy hats, and how you think it would make a Witch's altar more... well, witchy!

    ReplyDelete
  39. They are both beautiful and unique, aren't they?

  40. Musicbloke9/15/2011

    Hi :-) Am a bit confused - I noticed the celebrations are on Oct 13th, so not actually on Hallowe'en, is that right?!?! Sorry if i'm sounding completely stupid...............lol...............

    ReplyDelete
  41. You are not sounding stupid at all. I like visiting every person who participates on my blog parties, if I were to have a party on All Hallow's Eve, I doubt anyone would see me until Nov 1st or 2nd. 

    Think of it this way, by the time All Hallow's Eve comes, all the cool posts will be up for our enjoyment. And those of us who want to go out and get witchy wild on All Hallow's Eve can do so without missing the blog party ;-)

    Also, I'm kind of obsessed with the 13th *sigh*

  42. Mina Crump9/15/2011

    Oh Magaly, you are so deliciously wicked! Honey, I am in. I have no idea what I will do but I'll have fun doing it. I'm swiping your button now.

    Well, I'll swipe it as soon as I tell you how much I ADORE Esme, Spirit and Primity. I just love Shelle and am going to pay a visit to Crafty Moose. Okay, I am swiping the button...Hugs to you my sweet wicked witch...NOW!

    ReplyDelete
  43. All Hallow's Grim with sprinkles! How much cooler can this get? I'm excited about this party, and super excited to read you. Many, many hugs to you, my luv!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh I'm so in!  I've got books coming from Red Wheel Press, I'll get something witchy posted for you.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Just added you. Excited to check out the creepy reads you are going to share!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Sah-weet! I know I shouldn't take on another thing but this is irresistible! I've grabbed the button and blogged about your dark and grim event! Now...to remember to write...whew!

    Darn zombies. They just can't be trusted not to convince themselves that random things are brains and then eat them. ;-) I'm in for the celebration of all things grim, I do love so love the darker side. 

    ReplyDelete
  50. My thoughts exactly. Please, so show us your darker side!

    Hi Magaly - thank you so much for stopping by! I LOVE your place and am going to come by and make myself comfy some more. Please add me into your party, am currently working my way through a few spooky books and am making my first art doll... who is a zombie with a taste for Barbie braaaaains ;)

  52. Well hello right back at ya. You've made me squeal really early in the morning. The idea of "a zombie with a taste for Barbie braaaaains" is AWESOME! I hope the poor corpse like other things too, if not he'll starve to death (that was mean, but I couldn't help myself). 

    Enjoy your visits, and of course, come often ;-)

  53. Craftymoose9/17/2011

    Well, I am not a writer and have never done this type of blog party before, but it seems as though my art has decided for me. I just created a piece that turned out to have a life of its own--but you will have to wait to see it on my post. Esme & Primitive so enjoyed being a part of your post & can't wait for Spirit to arrive here to join them! Thank you so much! Grabbing your button to put on my sidebar!  

    ReplyDelete
  54. Welcome to the party! I'm excited to see what you art decided to do. I bet it'll be extra witchy!

    I've been heavily debating if I wanted to join in and I finally decided... Why not? I've never done a blog party before and it just sounds like so much fun! Grabbing the button =) Hopefully I'll figure out something grim and possibly grotesque.
