Scary and Eerily Adorable DIY Halloween Costume Inspirations (Fourth Edition)

WIN_20181024_11_57_25_Pro

Here I am dressed as a magician for a Halloween party. Got most of the stuff from a resale store. Hat includes a bunny, scarves, and wand.

While you may have an assortment of costumes at any Halloween or holiday store, a lot of them don’t seem to offer viable choices. Many may have sexy costumes for women which may not be suitable for a wholesome audience. And there are even sexy costumes for things that shouldn’t be. Yet, for added creativity, many would prefer to make their own. After all, you’ll see plenty of inspirations from craft stores and resale shops when I’ve looked for some ideas on Pinterest to show to you. Some may consist of scary monsters you’re used to seeing on Halloween. Some may be of pop culture characters or mundane things. While some might be made around an original concept entirely. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of unique DIY costumes for Halloween inspiration.

And plenty of companies are willing to oblige since catering to multiple holidays means more profits.

The Dark Scary World of Vintage Halloween Costumes (Fourth Edition)

il_570xN.675235072_ivz2.jpg

I don’t know the reason why that is. But when I look at some old Halloween pictures, it seems that the costumes were incredibly terrifying. And I am never sure why. Could it be the black and white photography? Then again, I find some color phots with terrifying costumes. Could it be the costumes designs? Maybe. Nonetheless, while some of these scary costumes consist of spooky figures, a lot of them aren’t meant to be scary. For instance, For instance, I could find plenty of Disney costumes that would absolutely haunt my dreams. And I don’t think Walt Disney’s intended to traumatize children when he created Mickey Mouse. While some are just downright offensive racial caricatures. Nonetheless, my vintage Halloween costume posts over the years have been quite popular. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of downright spooky Halloween costumes from yesterday.

And he seems rather out of place among the soulless dolls. Not sure which is scarier.

32. A witch needs her ghosts to help in her evil schemes.

scary-vintage-halloween-creepy-costumes-108-57fc8bcd13857__605

The ghosts may be kids in sheets. But the black and white in this photo makes everything seem all so terrifying.

33. Would you give candy to kids like these?

scary-vintage-halloween-creepy-costumes-109-57fc8c2c81d24__605

Give the creepy gnome and her friend the Snickers bars and hope they’re satisfied. Because Lord knows what’ll happen to you if they don’t.

34. Perhaps this sailor prefers to hang out with a ghost.

scary-vintage-halloween-creepy-costumes-110-57fc8c8af0481__605

Yet, look into his eyes and you’ll find a soulless void of unrelenting doom. Just look away.

35. When you see Frankenstein monsters in dirty shirts, it’s time to run.

scary-vintage-halloween-creepy-costumes-112-57fc8d40a8947__605

You also see a ghost with a blue face between them. So give them candy and they will disappear if they show up at your doorstep.

36. Want to spend time with these ladies?

scary-vintage-halloween-creepy-costumes-120-57fc920714236__605

One has Native American mask that emits a very negative stereotype. The other has a princess one.

37. On a snowy day, would you let these masked figures in?

scary-vintage-halloween-creepy-costumes-121-57fc92640b43e__605

One has a black hat and white cloth on the mouth. The other has a black scarf on her head covering her eyes.

38. Sometimes a simple black mask is all you need.

scary-vintage-halloween-creepy-costumes-122-57fc92976d32a__605

She just wears a mask with her feather hat and dress. Makes you wonder if she has murder on the mind.

39. This vampire wants your blood.

scary-vintage-halloween-creepy-costumes-136-57fca1477e4de__605

Indeed, it’s a bought costume. But the mask will certainly scare the hell out of you.

40. Nobody should cross Cinderella’s stepmother and stepsisters.

slide_12016_160545_large

Funny, how they’re even scarier in the live action version. Like they could give me nightmares.

41. If you’re at a Halloween party, don’t cross this Asian lady.

slide_255991_1626932_free

Okay, that’s pretty racist. But please, don’t tell her that since you may never be seen again.

42. Seems like one of these witches isn’t too happy.

Two People Wearing Halloween Costumes

It’s the one on the left, by the way. And it seems like she’s about to turn her friend into a toad any minute now.

43. Want to join this skeleton crew?

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween23

Don’t really seem like a lively bunch. Yet, you might want to avoid them like the plague.

44. Nobody wants to be at this devil’s pitchfork.

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween24

That mask is simply horrifying. And I’m sure that pitchfork has real prongs that will rip your flesh to kingdom come.

45. What? Never saw a well dressed witch before?

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween39

Oh, wait, that woman is supposed to be Mother Goose. Still, she doesn’t inspire wholesome childhood rhymes. More like nightmares.

46. Perhaps this gnome girl will protect your garden.

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween27

Though I’d be much more worried about the critters than her. While that grin indicates she has murder on the mind.

47. Don’t forget to wear a mask to the party.

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween31

And it seems this party required that a guy had to dress up as an offensive racial stereotype. Yep, that’s really racist.

48. No one dare approach the witch.

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween33

Is that mask sewed on? God, that’s so disturbing it’s freaking me out.

49. A devilish clown haunts the local countryside.

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween34

And little Bootsie the cat was never seen again. So make that what you will.

50. Best you don’t go near this Indian woman.

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween35

Okay, that’s really offensive. Then again, she’s probably a ghost of a woman buried under the house’s foundation.

51. Giggles the clown can be such a delight.

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween49

But remember that he moonlights as a serial killer. So if you cross him, he will get you.

52. This ghost has a unique way of carving a pumpkin.

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween53

Still, you don’t want to mess with this phantom. For you will live to regret it, if you survive at all.

53. Seems like these 2 are on the Dark Side of the Force.

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween54

These old DIY Star Wars costumes seem more appropriate for a horror movie. This is especially since they’re only masks and nothing else.

54. Want to hear some music?

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween69

Unfortunately, it was Johnny’s last song. For he was never seen or heard from again afterwards. And that was after he beat the Devil in Georgia.

55. If you want to scare birds, try these scarecrows.

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween58

Okay, they’re people in costumes. But they’ll sure scare crows all the same.

56. Nothing beats a cool fall breeze.

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween59

Wonder if these women live in some abandoned house covered in cobwebs. Would really explain a lot.

57. I’m sure you can trust this scarecrow with your children.

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween61

I can see why this little girl doesn’t want to be held by this guy. Hope she wasn’t found dead in some dark alley afterwards.

58. How would you like to see these ghosts at your house?

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween62

Gladys wasn’t seen again after this. But there are plenty of rumors that she was murdered in a dark alley that night.

59. Someone must be creeping around.

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween63

Yet, when you see him in the moonlight, run for your life. Because that’s when he’s in a stabbing mood.

60. Siblings always seem to dress alike.

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween66

Yet, both seem to have different mask. Nonetheless, they’re guaranteed to kill you in your sleep.

61. These fairies walk in the garden hand in hand.

vintage_halloween_costumes_postcard-re22ce5478b4a496caa48a7af729ba74c_vgbaq_8byvr_512

Yet, do anything to hurt them and they will lash out. Still, you can bet on them haunting your dreams when you come across them.

62. These two Indians always know how pose for the camera.

vintage-halloween-costumes-2

Okay, they’re white boys dressed as Native Americans. And yes, it’s certainly cultural appropriation. Though at least they’re not wearing war paint for a Redskins game.

63. Always help a little old lady across the street.

slide_255991_1626761_free

Okay, these are just a couple of kids. But the Groucho Marx glasses doesn’t really help matters with the kid on the left.

64. You won’t see these witches’ faces.

tumblr_mtqysmezt31rhhnauo1_500

Since they’re wearing black masks. So you won’t know which one turned you into a toad.

65. Someone hasn’t had any luck trick or treating.

db811b8b3b706b81bf9a3847cd72eab2

I’m sure she’ll be back to get her revenge if she doesn’t get any candy. And whoever lives there won’t be seen or heard again.

66. A dog is a rather tranquil creature.

61ab0798aa53f32399f16fc2980381b0--creepy-costumes-vintage-halloween-costumes

Dear God, can someone get out their hunting rifle and shoot that thing? I don’t care if it doesn’t have rabies.

67. Be easy on him, he’s just come out of the laboratory.

12295630_17-creepy-vintage-halloween-costumes-that_t3dd19e22

He’s also been experimented on a lot that he’s a really bad mood. So don’t stand in his way.

68. You may pass by this candelabra in the halls.

http___a.amz.mshcdn.com_wp-content_uploads_2014_10_Halloween-costumes-7

So I guess the live action version of Beauty and the Beast wasn’t well received. Not sure why she’s not pictured with a clock.

69. Want to know what’s in the can?

5176b1dc7bc40f0ca3bae8ad7637e548

Actually, no. Since this thing scares the hell out of me and will haunt my dreams.

70. There’s a chance you might come across an organ grinder.

0_a86cf_89725a27_XL

However, the monkey seems way too big. And he seems kind of sad in his captivity.

71. Behold the all seeing radar eye.

halloweenwear-vintage-eyeball-costume

Man, this is freaky. Seriously, why would anyone wear this for Halloween?

72. Don’t forget to take the stairs.

8fd1eae84167c0e81497ab43ed4467ed

Those masks are simply frightening. Bound to inspire nightmares.

73. “Is this your cat?”

953780_original

Kind of feel bad for the cat. Seriously, you’d think this wolf would devour it at some point.

74. Co-join twins always know how to have fun.

b2f377dfebffd85dd14723237e845f11--weird-costumes-creepy-halloween-costumes

Yet, if you go near them, they will try to kill you. Don’t say that I didn’t warn you.

75. Is that a bear near that house?

vintage halloween costumes Elegant 791 best Creepy Vintage Halloween Costumes images on Pinterest

I think so. But I’d rather take my chances in the woods than with this guy.

76. “Come out and play with us, Danny.”

CHS2013.1307

Does one of them have a Native American mask? Either way, these kids look really creepy.

77. Would you want to see a rat like this in your yard?

10_jpege2b454d4b05f1d3676b0da1bba64a815.jpeg

Seems like it. Yet, it’s especially scary that this photo was taken at night.

78. These women will beg for your attention.

vintage-halloween-costumes-23

They certainly have my attention. Though how much do I have to pay to make them go away? Also, dressing as a disabled person for Halloween isn’t a great idea.

79. Seems like Satan can’t keep his hands off her.

2d5d876fce1c7e4383a167f98b3ea804

Well, the devil does have his hands on her breasts. Unlike some men, this doesn’t hurt the Prince of Darkness’ career. Since being an evil bastard is part of his job.

80. You’d almost think this was a real ghost car.

4949

In a way, it kind of is. After all, you have ghosts in the driver and passenger seat.

Ghastly Halloween Greetings in the Ghoulish Days of Old (Fourth Edition)

89714.jpg

Now it’s onto the vintage Halloween greeting cards. Over the years, I’ve showed my readers all the crazy Halloween vintage cards out there. Sure, the pumpkin scarecrow smoking a pipe might not fly today. Yet, compared to some of the old Halloween cards out there, it’s pretty tame. Of course, you’ll see plenty of witches, jack-o’-lanterns, ghosts, goblins, devils, skeletons, and other scary figures in the night. Yet, you’d also see plenty of other strange figures that would make you wonder whether these cards were created on an opium haze. You’ll find creatures made out of pumpkins and gourds. You’ll see children with pumpkin heads. You may even see a man in the moon with an unsettling grin. Furthermore, you may think the kids in these cards seem uncannily sinister than cute. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of crazy Halloween cards bound to give you either the giggles or nightmares.

  1. “When witches abound/And ghosts are seen/Your fate you will learn/On Halloween.”
0ecef25df77b10adcf3814ae827dff7f

However, after she’s carving that pumpkin, Elsie plans on going on a midnight murder spree with her friends. Her cat’s not pleased.

2. “Gladys, I think you’ve been smoking peyote for far too long.”

2a375818a891253e30df37a163c3ee3d

I don’t know about you, but the jack-o’-lantern seems pretty high. Like how is that possible?

3. “On Hallowe’en look in the glass/Your future husband’s face will pass.”

5de0c86c079595b0f3e65e9e5b76539f

Though I’d worry more about the shadowy witch behind her if I was that woman. Seriously, she’s literally in the shadows.

4. Have a happy Halloween but look out for goblins.

6

So that’s what those pumpkin people near the mushrooms supposed to be. Yet, these kids don’t seem scared by them for some reason.

5. “Beware! The time is here/In which the witches do appear.”

6a1571b0a6269a3a7afd4d63fe661cfc

Forget the witches. I think the clock is kind of freaky looking. Not to mention, it has a jack-o’-lantern pendulum.

6. This witch comes to cast you a Halloween spell of good luck and riches.

7eb96ffbab7be779e895c8e1f1b9fc07--halloween-magic-halloween-witches

Judging by the cat freaking out, I kind of beg to differ. Since the witch kind of seems sinister with a jack-o’-lantern light.

7. Beware of the pumkinheaded man on top a white horse.

8d01d513b6ceab7f1b236e5a703e1d3e--halloween-art-vintage-halloween

Oh, wait, that’s a guy dressed as a pumpkinheaded man on a horse. Also, what’s with the cats on their backs? Are they dead?

8. Remember, ghosts come out on Halloween night.

catowl-fleurdlis-pinterest

The owl’s like, “I freaking go out at night. You think I didn’t know that already?”

9. Beware of going out at night when the pumpkin man is on the premises.

9bb67fbf3dc4dba93ede54c85fe8b87d

This boy doesn’t know what’s coming to him. Also, what’s with the green cat?

10. Halloween greetings from the little witch in the pumpkin house.

16f41b1978a3d15f92940e6443c451eb--vintage-halloween-cards-retro-halloween

Okay, that house looks pretty freaky. Yet, the little witch is more upset about her jack-o’-lantern falling apart.

11. On Halloween, even the cars have faces.

24c8c617decaa0474114477490dba849

That will certainly give you a deer in the headlights look. The kid driving it is even freakier.

12. Happy Halloween from the spider woman.

26f8e2672fdec2af4d0a80937a04e191

Really don’t want to know how they would’ve drawn Spiderman. Seriously, the spider with a woman’s head already scares the shit out of me.

13. “May Halloween fun be yours.”

31

These kids appear like the stuff of nightmares. No wonder the man in the moon is kind of freaking out.

14. Bobbing for apples is great Halloween fun.

36

I wouldn’t think this boy sees it that way. More like he doesn’t want to go through that again.

15. “Boil and bubble/Toil and trouble.”

36e92c6643d0855cde7071ede994c70d

The cat’s like, “When you’re finished, please don’t test it on me. I don’t want know what it’ll do to me!”

16. “On Halloween: a dark secret.”

93da0f21d1a8c53c75bf2eda27588ce0

What’s that girl doing with that boy’s hand? I don’t have a good feeling about her.

17. You won’t get a fright if you set a jack-o’-lantern alight.

00121[1589x948x24BPP]

However, I’m more scared of seeing the Ooompah Loompahs hauling a pumpkin out of the patch. Seriously, ever saw them sing whenever a kid succumbs to temptation?

18. Be wary of black cats on Halloween.

cb80d71b44c6040d5e4f2a02cfdb2883

For they seem to eye the girl with her jack-o’-lantern so eerily. Like they’re her minions doing her bidding. Even witches have trouble with black cats.

19. The demons always love to come out on Halloween.

201-best-vintage-halloween-images-on-pinterest-halloween-post-cards

Though the smoking pumpkins seem far more sinister. The devils just seem like they’re jumping freestyle.

20. This lovely witch wishes you a joyful Halloween.

422a22458a5150123d1ecc5da8db3bb2--vintage-halloween-images-vintage-holiday

But her broomstick is equipped with state of the art pumpkins and gourds. the jack-o’-lantern serves as headlights.

21. Nothing is more fun on Halloween than a witches’ circle.

443a6fa45307571621a2f53e39cd77d0

As the witches dance around the jack-o’-lantern, the cat’s hairs stand on end. Guess it doesn’t like how things are going or something more sinister.

22. Beware when the pumpkinhead ghosts comes to your door.

81901913

I can see why this woman is certainly upset to see this ghoul. Since I’d feel the same way.

23. Halloween greetings from the night fairies.

5551a4d6057b08fe2fdf0b88d2a0a931--halloween-treats-halloween-cards

Here they carry Chinese lanterns on sticks. Still, I’m not sure what fairies have to do with Halloween.

24. On Halloween night, best to look behind the ghost in the mirror.

79549b9bba83101b891c008054c53c69

Seems like the Oompah Loompahs are behind it. Though such hijinks by them seems kind of benign in comparison.

25. On Halloween night, even the youngest witches come out.

81901920

By how that girl smiles, I can understand why the cats are freaking out. Since she seems likely to whack someone with her broomstick.

26. Don’t forget to feed the pumpkin on Halloween night.

1050462690_0a43107568

And here the demons are getting all the kindling and fuel at the ready. All this does is make the pumpkin even more terrifying.

27. To deter tick-tackers, always keep a pumpkin scarecrow in handy.

1088606883_825e3b1208_z

Sure it may seem to do the trick. All this kid needed was a jack-o’-lantern, stakes, and a white sheet.

28. Look out, it’s the pumpkin man!

4056411326_75da8d7ca8_z

Actually, I’m more disturbed with the costumed kids than the running pumpkin guy. After them, pumpkin man! Get ’em!

29. These children wish you a happy Halloween around the jack-o’-lantern.

a45a7146c85f57892156b7845435776b

Though I’m not sure what scares me more: the creepy children or the glowing jack-o’-lantern. Yet, the cats seem to take it in stride.

30. “To greet you heartily this Hallowe’en.”

ab6bd6d790702e797feadd935adb2a93

Heartily? These pumpkins seem to go after the scared black cat with the intention to kill.

31. This witch gives you Halloween greetings from her pumpkin cauldron.

b0fd5c6b95cc76ee7c130e21603492de

Though she doesn’t seem happy with what she’s doing. “Why did I have to brew draught of the living dead when I could’ve left home and become a magician?”

32. Girls and boys always enjoy bobbing for apples.

Bobbing_for_Apples_Vintage_Halloween_Postcard

Jack-o’-lantern’s like “they’re going make out, aren’t they? Why do I have to see this?”

33. “The pumpkin light of Hallowe’en is the only by which elves are seen.”

cfbcf90fdf989621270e6f3d97a45472

Those are elves? More like terrifying goblins from what I see. Please, keep them away.

34. Halloween greetings from the pretty red-haired witch.

daf62a874819c8ef9f83b5fc6d505871

Apparently, the man in the moon seems to enjoy seeing her. The cat, not so much.

35. You can never have too many bats in the house on Halloween.

eb272166519f03f88dec50df8dc8b003--halloween-banner-halloween-prints

Yet, why she’s in a lovely silk pink dress among the bats, I don’t have the slightest idea. And why is she holding up a broomstick? Is she a witch?

36. “You’ll meet your fate on Hallowe’en.”

ef218b3b338d53c41b07a09a7b7f67a4

Well, the mice certainly know their fate. Yet, the pumpkin head kids on a log also give me nightmares.

37. Hope you have fun at a Halloween party.

enhanced-buzz-10008-1350583174-5

The girl in the witch costume is like, “I’d like to go home now.” And judging by the cats freaking out and the guy’s ghastly scarecrow costume, I wouldn’t blame her.

38. A Halloween bonfire is always a good time.

enhanced-buzz-10030-1350583489-15

However, these kids don’t seem to have any fun. Also, wonder what’s in that pot the ghost is stirring.

39. Guys, if you look into the fire on Halloween, you’ll see your future wife.

face_of_a_hag_halloween

Okay, that’s kind of freaky. Maybe he should try the mirror, that might be safer. Reminds me too much of Frollo’s “Hellfire.”

40. Halloween is always a night of revelry in an enchanted world.

goblins

Are naked gnomes? God, they’re hideously terrifying. Definitely giving me bad dreams tonight.

41. A witch enjoys spending time with a pumpkin on a seesaw.

Though the cat seems freaked out by the witch, I’m more terrified over the pumpkin. Also, its limbs seemed made out of peanuts.

42. “Don’t be scared on Hallowe’en/Things are seldom what they seem.”

halloween9_0

Yeah, that helps when you have a pumpkin headed demon behind you. Know that I was being sarcastic.

43. Beware of the dreaded pumpkin men on Halloween night.

http___a.amz.mshcdn.com_wp-content_uploads_2014_10_Halloween-cards3

Apparently, that kid is like, “Just imagine what you’ll dream about when I get to you.” Don’t have a good feeling about this.

45. There’s nothing on Halloween than a dance with the pumpkin guys.

images8HBE77WW

Okay, I think whoever designed this car must’ve been some heavy drugs at the time. Yet, the cat’s basically like, “What the fuck is going on here?”

46. You’ll never know what will come out of your jack-o’-lantern on Halloween night.

imagesB41RW2LA

Kid doesn’t seem to mind that a witch is literally coming out of his pumpkin. Yet, even he doesn’t seem particularly right in the head either.

47. Don’t go in the woods on Halloween night if you dare.

ugly

Those trees behind the boy seem particularly sinister. Get out of there, Johnny, before they kill you!

48. Halloween is always a time of spooks in the night.

Vintage Halloween Postcards (13)

Though I think the moon seems to scare the shit out of me more than anything else in this card. Seriously, he doesn’t seem up to any good.

49. Perhaps you might want to go on a Halloween balloon ride.

vintage-halloween-2

Yet, the balloon seems eerily empty. While the jack-o’-lantern still smiles. Not sure what to think.

50. Halloween greetings from a little witch and her cat.

vintage-halloween-card21

Cat’s basically like, “Help me!” You can’t even imagine what kind of hell it’s living through as this girl says, “I’ll hug ’em and squeeze ’em, and kee ’em forever and ever.”

The Spooky World of Halloween Pumpkin Dioramas (Fourth Edition)

untitled.png

One of my more popular Halloween posts revolves around pumpkin dioramas. In fact, every year when Halloween comes around, I usually get high stats with these decorations. These usually consist of a pumpkin with a haunted scene inside. Though the pumpkin in question usually comes from a craft store. Since real pumpkins have a lot of craft inside and usually decay in November. Yet, many of these scenes usually consist of haunted houses and grave yards. However, some can be quite creative, too. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of Halloween pumpkin dioramas.

  1. Please, come into this pumpkin house.
1e52071883664c339373d5120786e1fe

This one includes a doorway, windows, and chimney. And it even lights up as if a witch lives there.

2. Best to keep away from this witch’s cauldron.

6d8b135a5b12467ec0157e5048c279b2--halloween-diorama-halloween-displays

Wonder what potions she must be brewing. Though seeing her on her broom, she might be out shopping.

3. Someone’s hand must be rising from the grave.

6f4f9da4096e91d98bea208933388a45

This one uses the pumpkin parts so they won’t go to waste. Still, looks quite terrifying.

4. Death comes to the old haunted cemetery.

9abb7d8fcd0c0e13ee7d814db11c438d

Seems like this one was created with odds and ends. Not sure what to think about the overhead light.

5. Hope these kids have fun trick or treating.

9fe75a05272c6af0c890ca81813644c6

Seems like we got a ghost, scarecrow, and vampire. The jack-o-lanterns also seem quite expressive.

6. Looks like someone’s trapped in the Upside Down.

20f867ac2898a7ac5bd036cff39690cb_stranger-things-fans-go-upside-down-for-halloween-as-season-2-the-upside-down-clipart-strange

Indeed, you’d find a few pumpkin dioramas relating to Stranger Things. Not sure when the next season will premiere.

7. Apparently, you’ll find these ghosts behind bars.

60caace436734a26cc0ac37239622f8f

Though they can leave at any time since they’re ghosts. Still, they look more cute than scary.

8. Cinderella emerges out of her lavish pumpkin carriage.

60cd1efcc2ef9006c8c7e21070c600ca

This one is decked in jewels with a princess crown on top. And I guess the small pumpkins are supposed to be wheels.

9. It’s a starry night at the cemetery tonight.

92cf5cac1f7a7c755ea43b59bf09e27a

Doesn’t seem to be much her other than a skull and a jack-o’-lantern. But I love how it lights up inside.

10. Hope you stay out too late in this graveyard.

diy-pumpkin

Seems like the haunted house is made out of paper. Still, you have to like the skeleton on top wishing a Happy Halloween.
