Halloween is a big deal for our family. We live in a military community and there is always a unsaid competition for the best house. This year I want to blow them all away.
Here's the thing I can't be too gory and I refuse to be cutesy. Also my mind is a blank. I want to start building things in August so I can set up on October 1st. HELP!!!!!

What about more of a victorian, gothic/romantic theme? Less blood and guts and more intricate lace and carved gargoyles?
Think elegant vampires, not decomposing zombies.

Gory displays give me the heaves.  Grin

LOL- my two years in a costume shop has given me material to reply to every thread on this board!

We had regular customers that were extended family & they went all out every year with completely different themes each time. The two years I costumed them were: Wizard of Oz; Dorothy, Tin Man, Scarecrow, Lion, Glenda & The Great Oz, the little kids were all munchkins of course (they actually painted the sidewalk yellow for two blocks!- Tempera, it washed off) and Star Wars (old school first movie); Leia, Luke, Han Solo, Darth Vader, 2 stormtroopers, Obi Wan Kenobi (they got grandpa involved that year) and the little kids were Jawas.  The dad built C3PO & R2D2 robots for their driveway/ garage decor. we had pictures up in our store of them.

I've always thought a kind of Tim Burton look would be cool for Halloween decor. Lots of black and white stripes and checks, odd shapes, Giant spiders with purple and black striped legs. You could watch Beetlejuice or The Nightmare Before Christmas for inspirations.

I have no suggestions, I'm just glad to know I'm not the only one! I could almost give up Christmas for Halloween.
