In the Halloween spirit, the Fab 40’s decided to go for goth inspired looks this month.  Oh okay, “we” didn’t decide … it was my turn to pick and thrust this odd challenge upon us.  I’m a HUGE Halloween fan and a frustrated goth at heart (they kicked me out of the club back in the day for being far too cheerful and friendly!)
