Let the Halloween Shopping Begin!

Halloween is my favorite time of year. Everyone gets to dress up in crazy costumes, kids get free candy, and you get to eat things like brains and eyeballs at a party and not have anyone stare at you funny. Halloween is about fun and frights.

One of my favorite things to do is decorate my yard. We usually go with a cemetery scene, complete with graves, random bones lying everywhere, sometimes a decapitated head, spider webs and I've done a fog machine in the past. Kids don't know whether to run from the house or brave the yard to get the best candy ever (I always splurge on the candy).

I've done Halloween parties once or twice, too, and love to bake the cute cupcakes and horror shaped cookies, have the puke green punch in a witch's cauldron punch bowl, and make pigs in a blanket look like fingers.

When I found Costume Express, I fell in love. This company has just about everything you need for yard decorating, party supplies, and of course- costumes. The prices are amazing, and if you look at the banner at the top of their site, there are great coupon codes that can get you things like Free Shipping or savings on your purchase.

This company has a shower curtain that looks like the scene from Psycho, and plays the creepy knife-stabbing music... genius, and creepy as hell. They have window clings that look like mummies, that scared
the crap out of me just looking at them on the site. They have shrunken heads in jars and full sized mummy decorations to really freak people out. I absolutely love this company!

Costume Express is definitely the must go to place for your Halloween shopping. They have costumes categorized by age group as well as theme, and they are nicely priced. Everything from superheros to scary monsters to girly costumes to more adult-themed ones.

Clicking on either banner will send you directly to their site, where you can check them out for yourselves. I'm sure you won't be disappointed!

With that, I'm off to go get the Let Me Out Doormat... I'll keep this sucker up all year round, even after Halloween is long gone. That's my style.

  1. I love Hallowe'en! Always have. Living in the UK is funny though because they don't really 'do' Hallowe'en over here. Last year I had a bunch of kids show up at my house ont he 29th. I was all, "What are you doing?"
    They were all, "Tick-or-treaing"
    "It's not Hallowe'en. Hallowe'en is the 31st. Come back on Monday."
    "But that's a school night!"
    Pfft! School night or not, blizzarding or balmly, Hallowe'en and trick or treating happen on the 31st, dammit.

  2. I do the same thing, every year we add a few new things i just love it and kids come back every year to tell me they look forward to it all year long. So fun!
