Dressed in my Kitten Dress for Halloween!
I’m afraid it’s just a very quick blog today as I’m rushing against the clock. As you might expect I’ve been out every day this past week performing Halloween shows and things are really starting to ramp up as we get closer to Halloween and the 31st October. My new songs are going down a teat, or should I say “trick or treat” especially my Postmodern arrangement of “Wuthering Heights” which fits perfectly within my Halloween show mix.
On the 1st November I’ll be changing to Guy Fawkes shows and adding in the classic Josef Locke number “Blazeaway” along with “Burning Love” which is another popular Elvis tune. I already have “Devil in Disguise” which goes down well but perhaps surprisingly one of my favourite songs from this set list, is “Spooky”. It’s really groovy and to my mind wouldn’t seem out of place in a Scooby Doo cartoon.
On the 2nd November I’m heading into London to sing for the Royal British Legion and the London Poppy Day. Last year I was
Out in My Halloween Spider Orange!
working at London Bridge and Birmingham New Street Station as I covered the Midlands as well. This year the event is focusing around London and I will be singing at Euston station from 8am – 6pm, 20 minutes on 20 minutes off all through the day. It’s a big sing but very enjoyable and the time always seems to fly by.
I’ve been booked to sing music from WWI through to the 1970s plus I will be including a few of my new postmodern tracks this year too. I have to get there for 6am which gives me time to park up and unload. When it’s London you have to allow for extra time because anything can happen
A Spooky Spectacular!
especially if there is an unsuspected road closer and you don’t have a wing man.
I’m going to be placed in the centre of the station next to the poppy stall and I’m keeping my fingers crossed I will have a wind break with the pillar behind me. It’s easy to underestimate the wind rush of commuters as they walk back and forth to and from the station platforms. Over time it can cause a chill down your back so I need to make sure I wear extra clothes under my dress for added warmth and I have at least 3 pairs of

shoes of different heel heights. Although every pair of shoes I wear is in theory comfortable over time you need a change which enables me to stand for longer.
Last year we were able to raise over a million pounds for the Poppy Appeal in London so if you happen to be in town do pop along as it would be delightful to see you.
I shall leave you with a few of my spooky shots taken during my shows this week.
Keep Following Toodle Pip and Bye for Now! 😉
