Hey, this isn’t my house! I’ve been really negligent about Halloween decorating myself this year (although I may have a small post for you later), so this year I’m showing you the house of the best Halloween decorator I know, my friend Tracy (who gets a lot of help from her son/Milo and Gus’s good friend, Jack). I meant to do this last year, actually, but this being a crazy busy time of year, it just didn’t happen.
Tracy also throws a killer Halloween party, complete with a haunted house in her garage (Dave was over there last weekend helping construct a drop panel for said haunted house. We’re all very excited to see the final product.
Warning: CREEPINESS ABOUNDS AHEAD!
Things start off innocently enough, with this pumpkin guy welcoming you from the street:
But then things take a turn for the scary when you get a little closer. It’s a cemetery! Right here in the front yard! This can’t be a good sign:
This dog does not look very friendly. Also, can’t put my finger on it, but there’s something weird about him:
Actually, there seem to be a lot of strange dogs around here:
Well, at least this sign lets you know what you’re getting yourself into:
Let’s go inside! What could go wrong?
See, this lady looks very welcoming. I mean, her eyes are a little…intense, but surely there’s nothing TOO scary…..
Yikes. Never mind! Clown room!
Don’t go in the clown room!
Phew! This looks more inviting. Gargoyles are generally VERY friendly. I know because of the Disney version of the Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Alas! Lulled AGAIN into a false sense of security!
(isn’t this little side table awesome? I love it even when it’s not covered with skulls and scary books)
See what I did there? I saved what is arguably the creepiest picture for last! Big finish!
Thanks to Tracy for sharing her house!
Oops! Coming back to edit this post, because I just realized I forgot to include the nighttime photos Tracy sent me. Warning: MORE clown creepiness:
