The Witch Is In

The Witch Is In



The Halloween Wars have begun in my neighborhood...Oh how I always loved spookin' out my yard for the big event;-)  I've been absent from the competition over the past couple of years being distracted by family matters...but it sure feels good to be back!

I was greeted by cheers from my faithful fans as I single-handedly managed to secure my signature display without falling off the ladder!  In years past, I have put it up between my second floor windows...but I am forbidden to play on the roof anymore;-)

  Today I added some more spider webs and a black light to make them glow in the dark...a few spooky red lights and a strobe light/thunder machine for the real creep factor...break out the fogger and I'm good to go;-)

 Besides spookin' out the house, I like to create creepy costumes for my daughter to attend her annual Halloween dance.  How do you like last years creation??

Pretty cool huh?...Her teachers that chaperoned the dance said it was very disturbing having their sweet-natured student looking so hideous!


Well, I guess it's mission accomplished...Now I have to come up with something to top it this year...Any costume suggestions???


I'm open to anything that does not involve me having to sew or put dyes or hairspray in her hair...it's a bitch to get that crap out of the kid's hair!






As it stands right now, my house seems to be line for the winners circle, but anything can happen...My next door neighbor just happens to be my very competitive sister and she is not pleased at all that the hood is likin' my digs!'

So every now and then I just have to remind her that there can only be ONE Queen of Halloween...That's me!

Feel free to offer up your best creeper ideas...and I promise I won't tell my sister...I wouldn't want her to drop a house on you;-) LOL!

Puhleeeeze...Okay...yeah it's cute and pretty...But that's not Halloween!!!!  I'll let you all be the judges...And I promise not to hold it against you if you prefer the more 'watered down' version;-)  Just keep an eye on the sky for falling houses!!!

I take it you are not a fan of John Carpenter's "Halloween"...Best scary movie EVER! LOL! I'll tell my sister you prefer her pumpkin patch...she'll be happy for a vote;-) But the fun is actually mine...I love to hear children scream playfully...The idea is not to frighten them so much that they won't come to the door...Many of the neighborhood little ones come by daily just to see if I've added anything new...They like to take part by putting the webs up in the shrubs... It's their way of acclimating to it so it doesn't appear so scary when they come by for their treats! Now about those absent nightmares...You mean to tell me you've never had a dream of standing naked in a crowd?!?! I thought everybody had that one;-)

I have updated this post with the finished versions of both my house and my sisters house for your final vote-Let the games begin;-) And I think it goes without saying who the kids in the hood have crowned the undisputed... "Queen of Halloween!!!" (just sayin')

Ha ha...Thanks for that tip Chas \u270c\ufe0f Wyatt...I'm gonna keep a close eye on those old guys with canes from now on;-) I love your ideas of leaf man and moss man...My daughter tends to go for a more ghoulish look...the bloodier the better...When most little girls were dressing up as princesses mine took a liking to the 'scream' character...blood dripping mask and knife included...I guess it's my fault...I always had the house tricked out for Halloween and made it a point to slowly acclimate her to all my fiendish friends...What kind of mother am I anyway?!?! The fun kind;-)

Ha...Some might say it's a reflection of my own 'inner demons' Lisa \ud83d\udc1d Gallagher;-) I dunnooooo...you should hear the creepy cackles that escape me while I'm arranging dismembered body parts! LOL #19 Thanks Numo...Glad you liked it;-) #20 Oh I have the real spiders!!! There's a web around the front porch light that you ca't see in the photo...And you would not believe the size of the two spiders I found in my bathroom last week! Scared the beegeezus outta me...But as this is a 'no killing spiders' zone, they were lovingly captured and placed outside...Can't say the same for those corpses in my yard though;-)

Great zipper-face...atta girl, daughter-of-Cyndi wilkins! Y'all clearly got the spirit down :) If you wanna go for broke, buy live spiders! http://spiderpharm.com/store/#!/Parasteatoda-tepidariorum-Common-House-Spider-Theridiidae/p/43623350/category=11175143

omgosh Cyndi wilkins you sure do go all out and put me to shame. Why I've never been into Halloween, I'm not sure? I've been sitting here trying to call my creative mind...... wow.... it ran from me lol. Don't laugh, but the first thing that came to mind was the Realty show, "The Kardashians," maybe you could do a "Meet the Kardashian's, creepy style." It might be challenging but fun if you could pull it off. Caitlyn (formerly known as Bruce) could be the the star with Kim coming in second. You are very creative, I bet what ever you do will be fantastic! You go girl!

That sounds like great fun Franci\ud83d\udc1dEugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador!!! Maybe we 'girlie bees' should plan a trip to Mardi Gras sometime in the future;-) Thanks for sharing that...I'll bet you make a grand sorceress! #16 Thank you Aaron \ud83d\udc1d Skogen...It is quite a commitment of my time...It took two and a half hours just to get that web fastened correctly with the body and spider positioned as such so as to not pull the web down with their weight...A lot of thought goes into it so I appreciate the sentiment...I've created a monster of my own with my daughter (zipper face)...who says I need to "bloody things up" a little more...So proud of my little fledgling 'gore master!'

I love your fun read, Cyndi wilkins. Halloween is my favorite day of the year. Many moons ago, I went to Key West for Fantasy Fest, which is held in the last week of October. I dressed as a sorceress and I wore a wig that was so long it almost touched the ground. I was in the local parade and Jimmy Buffet was the Grand Marshall. The costumes worn at Fantasy Fest can be very elaborate, and some take over a year to make. -http://www.fantasyfest.com/ It's a lot of fun and similar to Mardi Gras, but on a smaller scale.

Absolutely agreed Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee... "The internet is forever...So Keep your dysfunctions where they belong … buried in your subconscious. We all have issues, but some people insist on taking them out and displaying them to everyone wherever they go. Don’t be your own worst enemy!" I think mine are best left as dismembered body parts strewn across my front yard! A playful way to display my darker side;-) Happy Halloweeeeeen!

I'm not quite sure probing the 'inner demon' in me is in my best interest Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee...I wouldn't want to risk losing my credibility here on beBee;-) Just look at that face!!! Innocent...right?!?! LOL #6 I have to give my sister credit here Harvey Lloyd...By challenging me to put on my best creep show, she pulled me out of the 'doldrums' I had been sinking into over the past couple of years...Losing my dad had a tremendous impact on all of us...and like she said, "You're the one that carries the torch now for all of us...So let's do this thing!" That was a gift in and of itself, and it is all in great fun for the whole neighborhood! #7 Thanks Pascal Derrien...as you can see, I do have a rather 'twisted' side;-) A couple of years ago I rigged my front porch with all kinds of motion detected paraphernalia to scare the dickens out of the neighborhood boys that liked to get out early and grab the entire bowls of candy that folks who weren't home would leave out for the kids...You know that "just take one piece" sign doesn't work with middle school boys;-) Anyhoo, they tried to grab my entire stash and everything on the front porch was triggered simultaneously as they lifted the bowl...As you could probably guess, candy was flying everywhere and they all ran from my house screaming bloody murder! BEST HALLOWEEN EVER;-)

A little sibling rivalry is good and most fun in the creepy episodes of Halloween. How about a sweet girl front and rear facing of monster face? Sounds like you create a fun house for a few days.

Just it would be nice to know your feelings with a zipper face would be Cyndi wilkins. I wish to probe in the inner side oy you.

I used to dress up as the 'Scream' character...made too many kids cry so I stopped...Last year I had screaming spiders that jumped at you when you walked by...got dropped kicked over the fence by a teenager...I think he wet himself...made his girlfriend laugh;-) #3 Zipper Face got lotsa likes at last years dance!...Let's see what I can come up with this year...I might have missed my calling as a make-up artist;-) What do you think ...any ideas???
