15 Outrageous Halloween Homes

Written by Nate Morgan — September 22, 2014

Reposted from:  http://ilovehalloween.net/blogs/news/16787547-15-outrageous-halloween-homes

One of our favorite things about Halloween are the outrageous home decorations that seem to pop up out of nowhere. Every neighborhood has one of “those” houses; AKA the ones that seem to be in relentless competition for the most festive house award. To say the inhabitants of such houses are dedicated is a gross understatement, and we have nothing but respect for their enthusiasm. So, we’ve collected 15 of the most over-the-top Halloween decorations we could find. Enjoy!

1. Giant Spider

Wow… Looks like the enormous arachnid apocalypse is finally upon us. We just hope they have home insurance.

2. Spider Invasion 

… And as the giant spider apocalypse continues, even the babies lust for human blood.

3. Nightmare Before Christmas Characters

This family deserves nothing less than a personal doorstep visit from Tim Burton himself!

4. Crash Landing

Sadly, these decorations are usually short-lived because the government comes to clean them up immediately.

5. “Pop is Dead”

They forgot “Here lies Yoncé. She (didn’t) wake up like this, and now we can see her halo.”

6. Huge Prehistoric Awesomeness

It would be awesome if they had the Jurassic Park theme playing from hidden speakers as people drove by. Totally bad@#$.

7. Monster Silhouettes 

“Honey, do you ever get the feeling that the neighbors are watching us?”

8. Zombie Takeover

We thought sleek, modern houses like this one couldn’t get any more sinister. We were wrong.

9. Simpsons Extravaganza 

We can’t help but wonder if they like the Simpsons…

10. Colossal Pumpkin King

How on Earth was this built?! We’re pretty sure the reason that man is smiling is because he somehow avoided almost certain death while erecting that monstrosity.

11. Ghost Buster Central

“If there’s somethin’ strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call?”… Not these residents, they’ll just make everything more strange.

12. Inflatable Nightmares

A halloween horror headline: “Oxygen-deprived family perishes after blowing up too many holiday inflatables.”

13. Get the Cops Called to Your House

Yeah, we know “less is more,” but this one may be too realistic for certain neighbors. For those of you wanting to duplicate this, don’t be surprised if the po po show up.

14. Pumpkin Palace

If this isn’t a fire hazard we don’t know what is.

15. This is Halloween

Last but not least, the ultimate Halloween decoration money shot. This is our favorite, by far.

But don’t go anywhere yet! We have to give a shout out to our creative followers: April Victorine and her family created this awesome haunted carriage scene completely from scratch. The skull pillar was created by our friend James Kyle who used chicken wire, expanding spray foam and milk jug skulls…

Have some Halloween handy work you’re proud of? Let us know and we may feature you in our next blog post. Thanks for reading!

Creepy – People Who Use Plastic Surgery to Look Like Dolls

As you know, I am a huge fan of cosplay – where people dress up in costumes, make-up, masks, etc. to look like comic book, steampunk, video game, or other characters.  This is NOT that.  This is people, especially growing in popularity in Ukraine, where people use cosmetic surgery and very unhealthy diets to make themselves look like non-human dolls.  All of these pictures are people, not dolls.  You agree, a little creepy?  (NOTE:  If any of these pictures are just make-up and not surgery, let me know and I will remove them.  I know some have obvious eye make-up added while others are tattooed like that.)

20 Haunting Pictures Of Abandoned Asylums

20 Haunting Pictures Of Abandoned Asylums

Abandoned mental asylums litter forgotten landscapes across the world. But these spooky buildings don’t compare to the fright you’ll experience inside the notorious Briarcliff Manor, the setting of American Horror Story: Asylum. Whet your macabre appetite with these haunting photos, and commit yourself to American Horror Story: Asylum. Wednesdays at 10p only on FX.

[My personal note – In Japan, ruins are known as haikyo (廃虚?) (literally “abandoned place”).  There is a growing interest in Haikyo exploration and photography if you are also interested in the eerie coolness of things falling apart.  I have posted other posts on this, including abandoned Soviet Union cold war facilities and abandoned amusement parks.]
