Unhappily ever after Halloween costumes

Updated on October 23, 2012

Unhappily ever after

It doesn’t matter where you were born because at one time or another we all have been “polluted” by fairy tales.  We have all heard at least one of those stories with the “happily ever after” ending.  Do you wonder what your life would be if those stories that you heard again and again during your childhood hadn’t all finished with a “happily ever after” ending?

Have you ever stopped to think that part of your frustrations with your adult relationships have their root in those stories that made you believe that good girls always get rewarded at the end of the story? Just think about it for a minute.  In all fairy tales the good girls suffer because of someone bad (a bad stepmother, wicked stepsisters, bad tempered fairies, you name it) but at the end, the heroine of the story always meets a handsome Prince who will love her, make her a Princess and live happily ever after.  In reality, very few girls meet that handsome Prince who swears to love them and adore them forever after.  In reality, if a girl is suffering then nothing will improve her situation but her own work; there are no fairy godmothers in real life.  You either study and/or work hard for yourself or you will be left unfulfilled!

Unhappily ever after... and if we try to change the story?

I don’t mean to be negative here, just realistic. Maybe the day that we stop looking for the perfect Prince charming we will be happier with ourselves and our relationships.  People are not perfect.  Life is not a fairy tale so maybe we should not really look for happily ever after but instead we should try to have happy moments as often as possible.

And talking about fairy tales and happily ever afters, I was wondering what would have happened if my childhood stories had had a different ending.

Snow Fright

Once upon a time a beautiful baby girl was born to a queen. She had eyes black as ebony; her skin was white like the snow and her lips so red that they resembled blood. Unfortunately for the little girl, her mother died when she was born and a few years later her father remarried an evil woman who had an ambition to be the prettiest woman in the world. When Snow White, as the girl was called, grew up she discovered that her stepmother had ordered her killed so she could remain the prettiest woman in the kingdom. But Snow White was a resourceful young girl and she went in the forest where she found 7 dwarfs who would do anything for a handful of gold. Snow White gave each of them a bag of gold and a night of pleasure in her private apartments. In exchange the dwarfs came all at once and took the evil stepmother to the woods where they kept her prisoner in a gold mine until the end of her days.

For her part, Snow White was so pretty that no man in the kingdom dared to court her and she lived alone her long, long, long life unhappily ever after.

Once upon a time a beautiful girl was kept captive in a tall tower by a wicked witch. Rapunzel, as the girl was named by the witch, grew alone in the tower waiting for someone to come and rescue her one day. At nighttime she would dream about a handsome Prince coming to take her away from her golden tower but no one ever came. One day a prince was passing by near the tower when he heard Rapunzel singing. He was besotted with her voice. When he found that the singer was Rapunzel and that she was kept captive in a tower by a wicked witch he decided to help her. He asked Rapunzel to help him climb up the tower throwing her long hair out of the window so he could climb up and save her. A silly idea that Rapunzel trusted. But of course the Prince was so heavy that he couldn’t climb and instead he pulled Rapunzel’s hair out of their roots. When the Prince saw Rapunzel bald he immediately went off the idea of saving her to make her his wife. Instead, when he saw the witch coming to visit Rapunzel he fell in love with and married her instead. As for Rapunzel she continued living all alone unhappily ever after until the day she died and finally Rested In Peace.

If after all you prefer to be the sweet Rapunzel... this is for you

halloween costume idea : Sinderella



This has always been my favourite fairy tale.  Not the Disney Cinderella but the Sinful maid that I imagined in my bed time stories.  Sinderella filled my teenage years of sexual awakening with sinful thoughts and foot adoration stories that I cannot share here with you.

This is a hellish version of the kids classic Cinderella. A ragged black skirt is attached to a printed lace bodice with black ribbon lacing.  The Perfect Halloween costume to have the men caressing your feet all night long with the excuse of trying on the crystal slipper...

Creeping Beauty

And what about Sleeping Beauty, surely after more than 100 years sleeping she would wake up to be a Creeping Beauty more like Fiona from Shrek than the beautiful Princess that Disney showed us.  I will never understand how a story that portrays such a passive women became so popular!
