The Digit-al Dozen Meets 13 Days of Halloween AND #52WPNMC - Thriller

Hi Goddesses

Wow, that is one long and boring blog post title lol.  Today the Digit-al Dozen's Halloween theme collides with the "pattern" prompt for the # 52WPNMC - the 1980s!

Originally I was going to go for something neon and insane to represent the 80s, but the minute I thought of tying it to the Halloween theme, only 1 thought ruled my mind - Thriller.

As all of you as old as me will know, Thriller is a turning point in pop cultural history.  The perfect meld of music and video, the video itself in it's 15 minute glory and the iconography of the dance and the costumes (remember Jennifer Garner in 13 Going on 30?).

My drawing isn't super good, but I think you *can* just about tell what it this mani is, but here's a handy guide lol, just incase - 

thumb - the gold typography from the album sleeve
index - popcorn, from the cinema, before it all went so wrong ....

The next 3 fingers are all Michael - his zombiefied face (ish, lol), his soiled and distressed red football jacket, and his famous white sock and black shoe, for all doz mooooves.

I'm a little sad that this mani can never be as good on my hand as I would want it to be, but one thing's for sure, this trip down Memory Lane REALLY made me smile :)
