Get your Ghoul on at Rockabilly Pin Up

Received that last minute invitation to the swanky Halloween do on the 31st of October? Perhaps you will be out trick or treating with the kids this year collecting bags of goodies from unsuspecting homeowners! This can all be great fun and regardless of whether you believe in vampires and werewolves- Halloween can be seriously fun!

With less than a week to go before the day itself are you finding that there is a mad rush to get your costume sorted? Most importantly how are you going to express your evil side on All Hallows Eve? Some of us will go all the way and splash out on a full length monkey costume. We at Rockabilly Pin Up know that there are some more subtle but very effective ways in which  you can express your inner scary this year especially with their range of jewellery and accessories:

Rockabilly skulls: One of the most famous of Rockabilly motifs, the skull is legendary- even more so when combined with the infamous bow. It ticks the great Halloween style box instantly! These quirky and cute earrings are encrusted with blood red and clear Swarovski stones. Proving that alternative accessorizing doesn't have to be about the over sized and sometimes garish pieces. These are a fantastic way in which you can express your love for all things creepy while keeping it totally Rockabilly at the same time!
Bow Belles Skull and Crystal Earrings £12.50 
Nautical Anchors: Another fabulous pair of earrings, these Anchor Sassy Earrings by Sourpuss are also available on the Rockabilly Pin Up website. The anchor just like the bow and skull is a very strong Rockabilly motif. But the tattoo style of these pair add a twist to the traditional anchor. The strong black lines with the filigree style and vibrant scarlet really make for a fabulously frightening (but in a great way) pair of earrings to go with your scary Halloween outfit!

Anchor Sassy Earrings by Sourpuss £8.50
Cats: Black is certainly the color of the season! It reminds us of all the long dark nights that we get at this time of year. And of those cast iron cauldrons, its on bats and spider but most importantly on cats! We love our beautiful black kitties all year round but even more so at this time of year: It's a fact that black cats do get a bad press around Halloween time and many are seen as being evil and are then abandoned which makes us very sad.

Why not show your appreciated for your furry feline pals by wearing a pair of Rockabilly Pin Up's black Kitten Earrings? Perfect as a gift for a fellow kitty lover or even for yourself! There is also a matching necklace and pendant too for a complete set. We at Rockabilly Pin Up actively encourage everyone to spread the black kitty love!
Black Kitten Earrings £5.50 
Cloak and Dagger: Halloween outfits can be some of the most varied around, with everything from Victorian Steam punk to Gothic Alice in Wonderland being worn to all those parties! Pirates are a great option too, you could add a few key nautically inspired pieces to rock the Captain Jack Sparrow style for Halloween! Try the Pirate Ear Stud by UL17 Alchemy for real understated Pirate Gothic!

Looking Hot at Halloween

The nights are longer and the summer has definitely left us- now is the time to really have fun with your autumnal Rockabilly wardrobe! Retro and all things pin up have never been as popular as they are now!
Even more so now at this end of the year- with only weeks to go until Halloween Rockabilly Pin Up is the place to go for all your glamorously gore-geous outfits and accessories!

Yes you too can be totally smoking as you go out trick or treating on All Hallows Eve night, and we are pretty sure that you may just be offered more than just candy when wearing any of the new Rockabilly Pin Up collection! Here are just a few eye catching items from the newly listed pieces on the Rockabilly Pin Up website...

Black and Red Double Hair Clip £13.50 
I adore this Black and Red Double Rose Hair clip! It's amazing and really makes an impact, you can wear it with a chic chignon style of with long wild locks for the big day! It's simple and so easy to clip on! The black and blood red will add more than a hint of the Gothic to your outfit. This piece is available in other color combinations too. With creams, red and pinks there will be something to suit your look. 

All memorable Halloween outfits will need that extra something to make them stand out from the crowd- especially when it comes to pin up. There is no better example than this Folter vest top! Although not traditionally a piece of clothing that is associated with the pin up look, it is still so very feminine. There are some fabulous features on the top, feminine aspects to it, for example I love the lace up back with the hot red ribbon. Only more proof if needed that being a Pin Up really is one of the most versatile of styles around! Although some of the glamorous gowns that we have on the Rockabilly Pin Up website are to die for, there's nothing stopping you from adding some punk or psychobilly aspects to your outfit! perfect with a pair of skinny jeans or pencil skirt, fishnets and sky high heels. 

Sacred Heart Corset Beater vest with Red Ribbon £29.50 
Speaking of which, you really cannot go wrong with a wonderfully figure hugging outfit! Just because you might be wearing a Halloween costume it doesn't mean that you can't look fantastic in it! Why not wear your wolf mask and paws with this little beauty from Rockabilly Pin Up? The pretty polka dot dress comes complete with it's own mesh lining on the dress. The satin belt adds lovely detail to the waist and give it a pinched in feel. The pretty bow across the chest is part of a cute sweetheart neckline, not only is it retro but also super sexy too. Team this dress with a dainty cardigan or shrug to keep you warm while you are out and about on Halloween night (or any other night for that matter!)
