Last Monday, I wrote a post about my super cool neighbor and his yard full of zombies (check it out here) and how he has an amazing knack for creating creepy things.
Well, I had asked him last year if he would help me create something creepy-cool for my yard and he jumped right on in there and helped me make these lovely ladies (well, he actually did it all, I just bought the stuff--that counts, right?)
Since he already had the zombie thing going on over at his place, I decided to go for the next best thing--witches. For me, zombies are the number one coolest monster, with witches coming in a decent second. Vampires and werewolves no longer give me that tingly feeling. Twilight damaged me (Sorry).
I mean, think back to your childhood and all the Disney movies we were exposed to as kids--Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Little Mermaid. That's some scary stuff for a little kid. Did you see a Disney vampire cartoon? No. Or a Disney werewolf cartoon? No (Beauty and the Beast doesn't count--he's not quite a werewolf--close but no beans). As a child, I grew up knowing witches were evil and to be feared (except for BeWitched, which was kind of funny--loved that show. Good times).
So I've got the three sister witch thing going on in my yard. The witch in the middle, the one with the stick, actually stirs the black cauldron. My neighbor put in a motor that turns in a circle--super fun. On Halloween night I will add fog coming out of the bucket and a bunch of scary music in the background. Maybe witches cackling or something. I may even dress up as a witch myself as I pass out the candy.
I love Halloween. I love being able to get my creep on! Oh, and don't you just love the scary eyes in my window? Yeah, that's what I'm talking about.
Halloween is my favorite holiday by far. It's the only time of the year I can be as creepy as I want and it's socially acceptable.
What cool stuff so you do for Halloween? Dress up? See scary movies? Take the kiddies Trick-or-Treating?
