Halloween is by far my favorite holiday. Right around the middle of September, I start quoting lines from Something Wicket This Way Comes and planning activities for the entire month of October. I love going to haunted houses, baking fall treats, watching horror movies, planning Halloween parties, and most importantly, decorating my apartment. So to start off my Halloween-obsessed posts, here’s a guide to some of the geeky Halloween decorations I’ve found and love. Not for the casual Halloweener.
1. Alien Skull. $9.99. eCrater.
This little gem would make a lovely addition to any end table, mantle, or centerpiece. Buy it here.
2. Zombie Gnome Horde. $55. Etsy.
This would look great on any lawn or porch all year round. Get it here.
3. Haunted Memories Antique Photos. $12.99 and up.
If you’ve ever dreamt of owning some Haunted Mansion-esque creepy photos, now’s your chance. Haunted Memories sells holographic, old-looking photos that appear nice one moment and horrifying the next. I bought some of these babies at a Comic-Con booth last year, and they’re awesome. Their website is a bit of a pain, but browsing the creepy portraits is a lot of fun. Browse them here.
4. Pumpkin Pac-Man and Ghosts. $55. Amazon.
For the serious Halloween decorator, this Pac-Man piece could really class up your lawn and let your neighbors know you mean business. Check it out here.
5. Mac-O-Lantern. Do-it-yourself. Instructables.
For those who are crafty or technologically inclined, consider making a cool Mac-O-Lantern instead of carving up a traditional pumpkin. Instructions here.
If you guys find other geeky Halloween treasures, I would love to hear about them so I can snatch them up!
