Mother Nature has been roasting and toasting us this Halloween season, enough to make you want to freeze one’s caramel apple and put it on your face to cool down. My goodness these temperatures have been soaring. Meanwhile, we’re going to have the A/C on full blast, and we’ll be playing fun stuff on the Akbar Jumbotron, serving some snacks to go with your drink special, and we will be making Halloween necklaces.
Human beings have been wearing necklaces ever since we figured out how to string stuff together. Necklaces made of stones, animal fangs, teeth, feathers, claws, shells, etc. still hang on wearers buried in ancient tombs. Necklaces stood for status, or royalty, nowadays people wear them for fashion, or for sentimental value, religious reasons, or to make a statement. So we’re giving you an opportunity to make STATEMENT JEWELRY tonight.
Feelin’ tough? Feelin’ pretty? Feelin’ haunted or depraved, strange and eerie? Feelin’ Fun? Are you feelin’ like a Halloween monster goddess? Are you a high priest or an art wizard? Are you the ultimate Halloween romantic?
A good necklace is an accent piece for a well-dressed person, just like a ring or a scarf or necktie or a good set of cufflinks. You’re not going to wear your Halloween necklace everyday, you’ll mix it up with your other pendants and the like. But this is special. This is your message to the masses, worn around your neck to advertise your individuality.
There’s one time of year where you can really overcrowd your look with bizarre accoutrement, so get into it, we dare you. Adorn yourself distastefully, put together a necklace that helps complete or create your fall fashion look.
