SoCreepy – Halloween, Horror & Lore

Transworld Halloween & Attractions Show

I may have experienced the best day of my life recently when I attended the Halloween & Attractions Show in St. Louis. I’ve seen it on the Travel Channel for years but never went because it’s not open to the public – only those in the haunted house industry. But…there are benefits to being SoCreepy and I got in! I was definitely among “my people” and wanted to share some of the sights.

This is probably the scariest thing I saw. It's a full-size mannequin.

Lastly, I’m a huge fan of Face Off. It’s one of my favorite shows because I’m blown away by the talent. From this season, I saw House, Meagan, Anthony and Michael. Matt was there from last season. And of course, I had a fangirl moment when I saw Glenn Hetrick.

Retro Halloween Commercials

These bring me back – in the best possible way! Why can’t we have cool McDonald’s commercials like they do in France?

This weekend The Cabin in the Woods FINALLY starts and I’m stupid excited to see it. Why? Well, I’m a Buffy nerd, so having Joss Whedon involved is definitely a selling point. Still being a Buffy fangirl, I’m appreciating the fact that Drew Goddard wrote and directed it, too. He was the season 7 writer on Buffy. He also wrote for Lost, Alias and that little gem, Cloverfield. This movie has been in the can for a year which is probably while you’ll see The Mighty Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, in the lead and wonder WTF he’s doing in this movie. Also, it’s been way too long since any good horror has been out. I’ve been feeling really deprived. Between this and Prometheus soon, I’m about to wet my pants!

Don’t read the reviews. Seriously, don’t. Just surprise yourself. Enjoy the experience. Here’s the trailer.

Lady Gaga Halloween Costumes – Lady Gaga blue swimsuit Halloween costume – Lady Gaga Pokerface Halloween costume – Lady Gaga VMA Halloween costume

Just like Lady Gaga, I was born this way – a total creep! I am sorry to say that in our collection of Lady Gaga Halloween costumes, we don’t have a Lady Gaga meat dress. You’re on your own with that one. What we DO have are tons of other ideas to dress up in a Lady Gaga Halloween costume without having to put all the pieces together yourself: Lady Gaga blue swimsuit Halloween costume, Lady Gaga Pokerface Halloween costume, Lady Gaga VMA Halloween costume – plus lots of goodies like Lady Gaga wigs and glasses. Halloween is really the best time to start a bad romance anyway, don’t ya know??



The Walking Dead Halloween Costumes – Rick Grimes Sheriff – Walking Dead Zombies

The Walking Dead is one of SoCreepy’s favorite tv shows – and now – one of our favorite Halloween costumes! The Walking Dead Halloween costumes are a little bit more recognizable than standard zombie Halloween costumes. You could choose the Rick Grimes Walking Dead Halloween costume and be one badass sheriff. Or gore it up with the little girl zombie Halloween costume from the Walking Dead. All it takes is a little bit of extra makeup and a whole lotta creep!



Some readers may have noticed the lack of posts by yours truly lately. I have the usual excuses… too busy burying the dead in the basement, honing my expert stalker skills, fortifying my house for the impending zombie apocalypse. You know, the usual. Part of the reason for the absence however has been due to my purchase of Dead Island for the Playstation 3 (also availble on Xbox 360 & PC).

I will be blunt and say that Dead Island is about as perfect of a zombie game as I think anyone could get. What makes Dead Island so great is that it does not play like Left 4 Dead or Resident Evil. Nope, Dead Island is more of an RPG, similar in style to games like Fallout 3 or Oblivion.

Dead Island takes place on a paradise getaway island called Banoi. You can choose to play as four different characters who survived the initial onslaught, each with different specialties. The game is all about performing quests, helping people out to gain weapons or cash, and beating, bashing, driving over and shooting the ever loving guts out of the undead.

I haven’t tried the multiplayer side of the game yet. But unlike games like Call of Duty, Dead Island limits itself to 4 player co-op. You and three friends play the same map at the same time, helping each other out.

If you are a fan of video games and zombies, do not hesitate to pick up Dead Island. It is well worth every penny.
