    Definitely kooky and kid-friendly…like Disney's ride, "The Haunted Mansion" :)

    I don't have much Halloween style but we do carve a pumpkin and hang our noise activated ghost on the door. Does that count?

    LOVE Classic Horror!! Only the kids don't so if I want to have trick or treaters I am kooky and kid-friendly.

    These would be perfect for my annual Halloween party! My style is more classic horror with lots of fake blood!

    What a fun couple to greet trick or treaters in our new home! They would be a perfect pair …a real thriller to terrorize the neighborhood! :)

    They always say "two heads are better than one!" Especially for the scare factor at Halloween! Love this creepy couple…..

    As close to a haunted house or horror movie as I can get. My goal is to one day run my own haunted house again. I even have real animal skulls and hides.

    The giveaways are getting freakier and freakier. Unique. Mixture of East and West.

    My style is all over the place. Trying this year to make it more realistic and scary :)

    My Halloween style is an eclectic mix of vampy, thrilling, some fright for kids and adults, classic, and fun. I like to make my own window scene shilouttes, hang spiders and skeletons off the side of the house, create a cemetary with strobe lights, music, and fog, and have friends dress as zombies and walk around the yard. I love to take thrift store and dollar store finds, fix up old items and repurpose them. The fun in Halloween is adding new decorations each year to enhance what we already have.
