How have you stayed creative while staying at home?

I have been working on looks and projects that I don’t always have time for when I’m working full time. It’s been fun to experiment and play with more unconventional work.

What do you love about Halloween?

I love EVERYTHING about Halloween. It’s a makeup artist's Christmas! All the blood and the gore and character makeup—it’s the most fun!

Any spooky movie/music/TV show recommendations?

I have just finished watching Lovecraft Country. It combines amazing performance with magic and fantasy, all while tackling serious social issues around race, inequality and sexism. It’s amazing!

How have you stayed creative while staying at home?

I started with some songwriting challenges with friends, writing a song a day for a week and sharing what we came up with. It was a good exercise to stay accountable and escape into the music. But not putting pressure on myself to be productive all the time has been important in keeping my creativity light and something to enjoy.

What's your advice for anyone who wants to pursue music?

Follow what makes you excited and ignites a fire in your belly. Nobody is gonna do it quite like you, so you may as well give what you got to offer to the world and if no one likes it at least you can live knowing you represented who you are and your artistry authentically and from a place of love.

What do you love about Halloween?

Halloween gives an opportunity for all the misfits and unsubscribed people in the world to embrace their unique beauty and fit into the world. It lets us dress up and represent ourselves how we want, not how the system wants us to. As for the scary parts of Halloween, I freak out from!

Any spooky movie/music/TV show recommendations?

As said above, I'm a scared child. I think the The Witches (1990) completely traumatised me. But I do love some magic, and anything that explores that world I’m here for (as long as its not scary).

TheQuinals
How have you stayed creative while staying at home?

From all the obstacles I’ve gone through this year, I’ve actually written a few originals based on it, which is quite rare as I tend to get hesitant when it comes to writing my own music.

What's your advice for anyone who wants to pursue music?

Never doubt your capabilities. Feed the possibilities than your mind seeks.

What do you love about Halloween?

Not only does Halloween bring people together, but it also encourages a sense of creativity and confidence with each individual through dressing up and transforming into anything we’d like.

Any spooky movie/music/TV show recommendations?

Definitely would recommend to binge watch all of The Purge series. I would say it’s safe for those who are hesitant on watching horror films as it is more thrilling and involves a lot of mystery.

How have you stayed creative while staying at home?

I've realised how important it is to roll with it when you're in a season of consuming and to run with it when you're in a new season of creating. We're not always overcome with inspiration to make and express so, when the urge isn't there, I fatten my own creativity up with albums, books, films, podcasts, or recipes that are new to me and wander through new neighbourhoods (within 5km, of course).

What's your advice for anyone who wants to pursue music?

There are many people who have more time, money, and privilege than you do; that has nothing to do with your art—there's enough room for all of us to play our music. The key to enjoying the pursuit is to remember that worrying about perfection will poison the whole thing. Find what you connect with, sit with it often and remember that sturdy foundations are built slowly through trial and error.

What do you love about Halloween?

Other peoples' costumes and the way dressing up and playing guessing games can make anyone excited and playful! I love watching and hearing about what other people can imagine and construct. Also, it means a party ;)

Any spooky movie/music/TV show recommendations?

If you're feeling sane and patient, Twin Peaks. If you're in it for the outfits and predictable plots that only resolve on surface level but always circle back in time, original Charmed.

AmongTheRestless
How have you stayed creative while staying at home?

We recently have only just got back together in the last two weeks. Because of COVID-19, we all went home to our families in different states. We all stayed writing however, organising Zoom writing sessions to stay active.

What's your advice for anyone who wants to pursue music?

Just do it! Like anything, hard work and persistence is the key. We aren't very far into our careers, but we love what we do and that's what drives the band. Passion drives all musicians.

What do you love about Halloween?

Any festivity is great because of the way it brings people together. Dressing up and mates: what more could anyone ask for honestly.

Any spooky movie/music/TV show recommendations?

Black Sabbath are an essential band for eeriness; the original satanic band.

JohnnyCostin
How have you stayed creative while staying at home?

I’ve been trying to keep up playing and writing as much as possible, but we all know that’s not as easy as it sounds. I’m grateful for the creative days when they come. In the meantime I’ve been trying whatever craft comes my way. I’ve made way too many polymer clay earrings for my own good.

What's your advice for anyone who wants to pursue music?

Keep growing your skill set and don’t stop. Pick up a guitar, teach yourself songs on piano, learn how to operate a DAW, look into music from different cultures, watch videos on production, and write songs til your fingers hurt. Make every day a new challenge.

What do you love about Halloween?

It’s the one time in the year where everyone, everywhere is given permission to get creative and be a little silly. Halloween allows the world to light up with madness, and lets people act with the same uninhibited wackiness for a night, and it always leaves my cheeks hurting from smiling.

Any spooky movie/music/TV show recommendations?

I just finished watching The Haunting of Hill House, and it was phenomenal! Good scares and a surprisingly captivating story. Also I make it a mission of mine to start rewatching American Horror Story around this time of year, to get into the vibe, y’know?

Soju-Gang
How have you stayed creative while staying at home?

I’ve been trying to do little things to keep me creatively inspired whether it’s mucking around with music or making myself a new outfits via sewing.

What's your advice for anyone who wants to pursue DJing?

The best advice I can give is to give it a try—it’s not as hard as it looks!

What do you love about Halloween?

I love the creativity Halloween draws out of people.

Any spooky movie/music/TV show recommendations?

If you’re into movie analysis, character tropes, or character analysis, Renegade Cut on YouTube has some really awesome insights into horror movies.
