I gotta say that I find more perverted that picture depicting a skeleton riding a skeleton motorbike. Something is just plain wrong with that.

Great photo galley.

I love the look of that thing's face in the last picture.

I really wish my Circuit City became something cool like this, but to my knowledge it's still empty.

I love the 'H. Delbruck' on the gravestone the plane is crashing into. Classic.

I wish I could get a closer peek at some of the Haunted Portraits. I feel that they would complete me in so many ways. I wonder if IKEA has any on clearance?

Awsome! I really would like a shop like this to open near my home (just a regular Walmart three blocks from my house).

But all this Halloween goodness made me wonder. I know that this is your (RoG's) favourite time of the year, buy costumes and do many halloween related stuff, but have you ever decorated your place with this kind of stuff? If so, how was the result?

And yeah, the "Haunted Portraits" idea is an awesome one, wonder why I had never seen it before.

Luigim128, I know, I didn't even catch it at first. Great subtle reference!

NecroLemur, ask and ye shall receive! I figured everybody has seen those things by now. Here ya go:


Comanderaff, I haven't decorated my own place in quite some time, primarily because there's no room. This is just another reason why I want a house so I can do something truly crazy for the season. When I was younger and still living with my parents, we used to put together some crazy haunted house / haunted basement attractions and I was always employed to scream at the top of my lungs (a la "I Will Beat Pacman" style) to scare the crap out of the kids. Good times. I'll try to dig up some photos of those old haunts if I can!

Monkra, oh great, glad you can pay it a visit! Here's the address Halloween Connection, 70 Taunton Depot Dr., Taunton, MA 02780 . Be sure to take some photos when you visit if you see anything worthwhile that we happened to miss!

eric-the-ded, I was soooo waiting for somebody to make that joke. Thank you for not letting me down.

clearly a better joke would be, "and i thought circuit city smelled bad... on the outside!"

It's clear now that no less than Samhain himself purchased Circuit City. I will have to talk Mum into taking an expedition to check on the status of my own semi-local store.

That jester puppet is going to provide me with nightmares for years to come.

I kind of want some of those hanging corpses. I'd keep those up year-round.
The dead hippie band is also kind of nifty. I'd plop them in the front yard and they would sing "happy happy joy joy" every hour on the hour. I dont know why, it just seems to make sense in my head.

I remember specifically the largest item at the one near me. It was a life size body "anamatronic" being slowly pulled into a meat grinder. He screamed as he was pulled in, and you could buy 1 or 3 gallon barrels of fake blood that would squirt out the back as he went through. Probably would have stained the bajeebus out of someones lawn.

That sounds AWESOME!!

I have no clue what's going down with the Circuit City that used to be around here. I will definitely have to check it out. Maybe it's competing with the other seasonal Halloween store in the same mall.

I wonder how that place is going to make money in the long run. Do they just shut down after Halloween or what?

The one by me, spirit, opens the first week of october, and closes until next halloween. It's so big that they have to rent a shut-down publix every year.

Yeah that's how all of those places work. They just find a space that isn't being used and rent it out for 2 months or so. Anything they don't sell, they just bring back to the warehouse at the end of the season. There are a few year-round stores, such as Halloween Club out here in SoCal though.

I am SO buying one of those "fog bubble" machines. I love popping them and watching smoke fly everywhere. It's addicting.
