Transforming your home into a Halloween haunted house

Challenge those trick or treaters by transforming your home into a Halloween haunted house!

Almost everyone enjoys some aspect of Halloween. Some adults don’t get into costume parties and the general revelry. However, such individuals may still be kids at heart and prefer providing a truly scary environment for trick or treaters. Almost every neighborhood has someone whose Halloween pleasure comes in the form of creating a Halloween haunted house that scares the wits out of the successful trick or treater. Make sure you have some frightening halloween yard decorations.

When my daughter was little, one neighborhood couple went all out every year to do just that. Their house even creeped me out. My brave little girl made it as far as the door. When the door opened, there was a Frankenstein like old man, very tall, dressed in tatters, covered in spiderwebs and holding a big basket of treats. He slowly and stiffly made his way towards her, proffering his basket. That was it for her. The candy wasn’t worth it, but she did get her entertainment’s worth! This was a genuine Halloween haunted house with lots of halloween yard decorations. I always wondered if his basket was still full at the end of the evening.

f you want to go with something lighter for your Halloween yard decorations, as in things your children will love at a younger age, you can find a variety of blow up decorations like witches, pumpkins, and some other interesting items.

Some of these are lit up from the inside, and some come with a wind machine that allows them to blow in the breeze for a very cool effect. These Halloween yard decorations are much like the ones you see at Christmas that feature various Christmas characters and themes.

You can use fog machines to add a very eerie feeling to the entire set up, and don’t forget the sound effects for your zombie costume ideas as well. You may have the yard that all the kids are talking about, and can’t wait to see the next year and the year after that.

The other good thing about a zombie costume ideas for women is that designers seem to have some kind of pact – that it’s important to make scary women look extremely seductive and naughty. Come to think of it, they seem to have a pact that wherever possible, women’s costumes have to be that no matter what it is.

How else to explain how no matter what they dress up as – animals, superheroes, construction workers dead bodies, women always have to end up making it difficult for every man at the party to take their eyes somewhere respectable?

Actually, it isn’t just costume designers; Marvel comics, DC comics, Boris Karloff and every movie maker who deals in this supernatural has to do this to the women involved. For instance, have you noticed how impossibly attractive women vampires are?
