Haunting Your Own House

In the spirit of Halloween, Monica and I wanted to share some of the fun we have had here at The Shelton household celebrating all things horrifying, morbid and blood soaked.  We whipped together some pretty cool props for a Halloween party a couple of years ago and everyone who showed up had a great time.  We hope that all of you have fun this year, and that you get as creative as you can with your costumes and that you scare the crap out of someone, even if it's yourself!  This is the only time adults get to act like kids and get away with it, so tear it up... or tear it limb from limb.  

The Dismemberment Room

We converted our shower into a place to throw our scrap limbs.  Sometimes when you need to bury bodies there just isn't enough room in the trunk of your car. Torsos are much easier to stack than full bodies.  Remember that the next time you have to hide evidence in a hurry!

The Sacrificial Altar

No gathering of unsuspecting victims is complete without an altar of sacrifice!  Make sure yours is sufficiently creepy to stop your guests dead in their tracks.  It makes the lethal blow much easier when they are staring at something in disbelief.

Proper Burial Place

Some people skip a proper burial, but we like to show our respect to the loved ones we choose to remove from our lives.  It makes it easier to sleep at night.  Our own burial site is getting pretty full.

Spreading Contagions

Okay, it's actually really easy to spread the viruses that make a typically boring, living person into an undead party animal but you have to do it with gusto!  You never know when one of those uptight losers might manage to pull off blowing your undead brains out, so make your bite count!  It could be your last!

Don't Forget to Invite the Witches

Witches are always up to something, so it's best to make sure they are invited to your Halloween party.  My Mom is pretty creative, and I don't think it would have been wise to leave her out of the fun.

Have a Lookout

This guy was watching things all night and he kept the guests in line.  Actually, everyone was creeped out by our budget Jason which Monica put together.

Watch Who You Let In

I don't know if this guy was supposed to be a chicken, Marty Feldman or a member of Jethro Tull, but he snarfed up all of our goodies and drank all of our booze!  Those were his limbs in the shower.  Drummers never put up a fight.

Happy Halloween!  Have fun, and be safe!
