What's New!


Wearing costumes is just about the best part of Halloween (other than trying to scare the living daylights out of people with other icky things). One day out of the year you can be whatever or whoever you want with one clothing change (makeup change, face change, hair color change, but who's counting - it's fun!)

Everyone is trying to figure out what they want to be now. There is a great selection of costumes for you to choose from to help with your decision.

My favorite to browse through (even though my kids are grown now) is the boy infant costumes, girl infant costumes, and the extremely adorable Tom Arma signature costumes. They are all sooooo cute! You have to look, just for the fun of it. Of course, more costumes will be added as the days go on.

Blood and Gore

Ok, now we getting down to the nitty gritty of the good stuff. A lot of Halloween Haunters need blood and gore. That's the best part of "the scare", right?

If you are working on a torture chamber haunt, you (guys) can get whip and spike scars, put on either your chest or back and wear a shredded T-shirt for a beat up or tortured look. Get a few chains and attach your hands to the walls.....

For a Land of the Living Dead look the blistering skin, flesh latex, or large open wound would be great. The blistering skin would also work for a burn victim too. Make sure you dab on the blood oozing from the wounds.


Last issue I had some free Halloween music and sounds for you. There were a few, ahem..., bugs just scampering around the tunes. Had to get rid of them, poor babies. Anyhooo, check out the tunes now, there's lots more to choose from than the first group.

...and I'm still adding more!

Contact Page

Well, last issue I told you to use the contact page to send in suggestions, comments and any "how to make it's" requests or any you want to share. I hate to say it, but that page didn't work the way it should have. Luckily, a persevering haunter found another way to get a hold of me and let me know that the page didn't work. I thank you for that.

Now, contact me, tell me what's up (or down) - what are all your plans?

My Special Request to You

What was your best-est costume ever? What are you going to be this year? My crystal ball won't tell me all! Tell me, PLEASE! Forward this to your friends and family so that I can "see" all the costumes.

I am dying to hear from you!

Happy Haunting!

Your Halloween fanatic,
