Answers 🦇 This Is Halloween 👻 Swap

What We Do In The Shadows: Show and movie are hilarious! LOVE Also love Our Flag Means Death and OBSESSED with Sandman!!! 😍🖤   If you'd like handmade knit items, are you good with soft wools or do you prefer acrylic only?  either is fine!   Are there any items you'd love for fall/halloweenie? (Ie mittens, hat, fingerless mitts, cowl, legwarmers) beanies and scarves are a yes please! 🖤🖤🖤   Anyone fancying the new Paintbox Soapworks or Witch Baby Soap Halloween launches? OooOoOoh I've always wanted to try Paintbox Soapworks! Emulsifying Soap Scrubs, soap bars or Sample size hand lotion would bring me joy! 🥛 Rice Pudding (Snake Milk has sent me on the path of condensed milk), 🤘 🇬🇧 Not Your Housekeeper (carnation + cannabis + shortbread? Mrs. Hudson is ICONIC), Red Cow 🐄 🥤 (apothecary vanilla cherry coke yum!)   Would you be interested in an adult Halloween coloring book? I recently backed on kickstarter for one by a local gothic art market near me and it's due in during the swap period. 
I donated all of my coloring pencils/craft supplies to a school recently.    What are some OCYL brands you've been wanting to dabble in? Blazing Torch, Black Baccara, Arcana, Pulp Fragrance, Alpha Musk, NAVA. I'll try to link my OCYL wishlist in my signature 🖤🧡

 I am working on making bath bombs.  Would you be willing to try my creations?  How about wax tarts?  What type of scents do you favor?
I don't take baths or have a wax warmer 😕 but I'm rooting for your new creative endeavors, So badass!
What kinds of home smell good things do you like? (I.e. incense, candles, wax melts, felt scent balls, essential oils, linen spray)
linen sprays and candles! 🕯 unfortunately I am unable to burn incense in my current residence.   My question for the fellow pumpkins would you like anything from the bath and bodyworks Halloween line? 🤔 No thank you 🦇 kind of allergic to B&BW scents   Do you have any interest in spooky squishmallows? The Nightmare Before Xmas Zero is adorable! 🥰🤍🐾    And would you enjoy spooky stationary? Absolutely 🦇    I know a lot of us are witchy and have deeply held beliefs about the materials we use as part of our practice. If you're one of those individuals, are there certain herbs, crystals, etc that you do not want to receive?  nope   When you have a distinct preference for one holiday over another, What are some cross over items that actually work for both? My preference for Halloween bleeds in to all the holiday things. So Black Cats, Pumpkins, Bats, Hot Cocoa, PSL things, candles, etc... all are welcome, all are valid, there is no beginning and end to Halloween things. ♾   One question (that is actually several questions) -- Local honey? Infused/flavored honey? Local infused/flavored honey with Southwest notes (jalapeno, other pepper, mesquite, acacia)? Local honey is always amazing! While I adore the idea of spicy honey, I never know what to put it in... Local honey with herbs is cool and will definitely get drizzled on many baking things, granola, yogurt and tea.   Does anything from JiJi Knight spark your interest? https://jijiknight.com/ OOooooOOhh! I really love the piece with the pink flower haired babe embracing the black longhaired babe with skulls in her hair!   Any spooky/weenie DVDs you're missing and would like in your collection? NMBC? the Crow? An old Hammer film? Dark Shadows? The Omen? Sleepy Hallow?...? This is an excellent question, I no longer have a DVD player, mostly just stream and rent through the tv   Dang (or good!), another serious question -- Shampoo and/or conditioner bars and if so, for what type of hair (dry, fine, oily, curly, normal)? I have tried one shampoo bar from felin Lune Apothecary and I really dig it. My hair is thick, hip length wavy/curly. I like moisturizing conditioners and deep clean shampoos 💜   I just got the email that the Ectogasm Halloween Collection is live. Does anything interest you? https://www.ectogasm.net/collections/halloween WOW! Love The Ghostly Painting Hand Enamel pin,  Rainbow Ghost Unisex Crew Socks, Jack -O-Lantern Collar pin set (blk/silver) and the Bat Collar Pin set! 🦇    On a scale from Paprika Is a Heatwave to Let Me Eat a Peck of Pickled Ghost Chiles, how spicy is too spicy, and how spicy is just right?  "Oh baby, I love me some SPICE. For every day snacking, I'm a Tapatio/Cholula and jalapenos go with everything kind of girl. I'm open to trying most things"---Batling pretty much nailed it!    I make lightweight hairfalls- would you be interested in some? Either to incorporate into a costume or just for your own year-round use? If so, name your colors and preferred length, and if you have any fiber allergies you want me to take note of!
