Halloween

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.

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?

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!



Red Riding Hood Halloween Costumes

Red Riding Hood Halloween Costumes

In honor of Jessica’s complete Vamp hotness as Red Riding Hood in True Blood’s finale, SoCreepy wants to make it easy for you to shop for Red Riding Hood Halloween costumes. No joke – every woman looks good in a Red Riding Hood Halloween costume – sexy style, plus size, fairy tale style – they all work. Don’t be pervy – we also featured girls Halloween costumes because they love Little Red Riding Hood.

P.S. – if you can rock it like Jessica did, call us, okay??



Katy Perry California Gurl Halloween Costume – Katy Perry Blue Wig – Katy Perry Black Wig

Forget the sexy nurse routine. This year, SoCreepy wants you to wear a Katy Perry Halloween costume. It’s my teenage dream, yo.



Harry Potter Halloween Costumes – Gryffindor Halloween Costumes – Slytherin Halloween Costumes – Hufflepuff Halloween Costumes – Ravenclaw Halloween Costumes

You won’t need magic to pull a Harry Potter Halloween costume out of your sorting hat. It’s as simple as gathering a few staples together. This Hogwarts Halloween costume works for Hermione Granger or Ron Weasley as well – just make sure to have the appropriate wigs – wavy for a Hermione Halloween costume and red for a Ron Halloween costume. We also have all the Hogwarts Halloween costumes including Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw.

Items you will need for a Harry Potter or Hogwarts Halloween costume:

Messy dark hair or a dark-haired wig
Black robe or hoodless cape (a dark v-neck sweater works too)
White button-down shirt
Red and yellow tie
Dark slacks
Scar kit or red greasepaint stick
Broomstick
Black round-rimmed glasses
Black shoes and socks
Wand

Dress as if you’re heading off to a boarding school on the East Coast . . . Choate, Riverdale or, why not, Hogwarts?? Once you’re dressed, put on your glasses and you should pass for Harry Potter. If you don’t have dark hair, go for a wig. Don’t forget something very important – a lightning bolt shaped scar on your forehead. We suggest carrying your wand (don’t be dirty), your broomstick (don’t be dirty) or a toy white owl to complete the look. If the scar starts to bother you, perhaps He Who Must Not Be Named is around. Or maybe you’re just drunk.



Frightening Fact:
Steven Spielberg was offered the position as director of the first Harry Potter film, but was later refused when he couldn’t agree with JK Rowling’s insistence on an all-British cast. He wanted to use Haley Joel Osment for the part of Harry. Let’s face it, that would have sucked. SO bad!
