Backseat Bingo Halloween Film Night

After the build up of our Halloween shoots and fashion film, it only seemed right to reunite the style power house that is our #HalloweenGirlGang for the All Hallows Eve. After hunting around for the perfect spooktacular event we opted for a frightening film night in the form of Backseat Bingo's Horror Double Bill. We headed through to Glasgow nice and early to make the most of the weekend, meaning we managed to stick our heads into the Abandon Ship Apparel Halloween party. This get together, to celebrate the Glasgow stores 1st birthday, saw them launching a special tee to celebrate. Featuring neon green slime, Helen couldn't help but nab one.

We also found time to head along to the Princes Square Pop Up Shop. It featured some of our faves Naromode, bebaroque, Georgia Wiseman, We are Faux, Rene Walrus, Rebecca Torres,and Prints of Paradise.  We really should have been shopping for gifts but instead ended up treating ourselves to some sparkly trinkets. You can't really blame us when there was so much talent under one roof!

On to the main event, the Backstreet Bingo film night at The Old Hairdressers in Renfield Lane. It was hosted by our favourite glamourpuss Casci Ritchie and the girl sure knows how to put on a spread! She had decked the hall with so many little touches, from glowing pumpkins to horror themed photobooth props, and our favourite- the spooky sweetie bar! It was great to enjoy so many Halloween treats without having to go out in the cold to perform at strangers' doors. Casci even introduced us to the sugary American dream that is candy corn. We ate it by the handful!

We settled down with our Halloween sweetie mixtures to watch a double bill of William Castle low- budget classics, House on Haunted Hill and Strait-Jacket. To the modern eye the films were not so much terrifying as.. hilarious. We were in stitches at some of the special effects- skeleton on strings anyone? They were kitsch and fun though, and some of the dresses *swoon*! The stories of both films are good, and Joan Crawford's acting alone is worth a watch.

Our favourite part (apart from the sugar high) was hanging out with our babes Miss Vicky Viola and Miss West End Girl. We all went in stylish fashion nods to costume- Kimberley brought out the old Spiritual Medium look, Helen was zombiefied, Miss Vicky Viola was adorable as I Love Lucy and Miss West End Girl had dem bones on show. As always we had a silly stylish time.
