I won't be dressing up this year, thanks for asking, but when I had a turn-of-the-century home in Vancouver, it was perfect for spooking the kids, so I always obliged
We had a corpse sitting up in a coffin on the front lawn, another one on the stairs surrounded by chalk with a knife sticking out of its head with CAUTION tape all around; a spooky sounds CD with whoooo ooooo , chains and banging; blood dripping down the glass on the front door which was slightly ajar; and all the lights were out. We also had bloody bones in the front yard amongst homemade tombstones, lit up by candles.
(We didn't add these elements until the wee ones had come and gone.)
I was Igor, Kelly was Frankenstein. We were demented Blues Brother. We were crazed Sumo Wrestlers. We were corpses. You name it, we wore it
Hallowe'en is fun fun fun! Hope you all enjoy
