Countdown to Halloween : Creature & Mummy Fashionistas

Double creature feature today. It wasn’t intentional, but when I think about it’s perfect considering that it’s only…

Two Days until Halloween!

The Creature from the Black Lagoon celebrated it’s 60th theatrical release anniversary on March 5th of this year. If you noticed the Cryptkeeper Countdown used it as the inspiration for their layout and buttons. This movie just so happens to be one of my favorite creature features as well. Don’t get me wrong, the classic monsters are always fun, but there was just something so empathetic about the Creature and I loved that this film still gave me a scare…60 years later while fighting for it’s title with the modern-date flicks to make you fear the bump in the night.

Countdown to Halloween : Unpleasant Dreams~

An awesome fellow countdown blogger called me out on their blog to feature an Elvira video and I got WAY too excited. I haven’t had a blogger link to me on their blog before. I feel like I made some growth this year in the Cryptkeeper community. :)

So for my awesome blogging friend at Rare Halloween Videos, this post is for you! Thanks for giving me a shout-out in your blog!

And a little FYI, If you’re worried about clicking on the link above, you’re seriously missing out! There’s an amazing collection of Halloween footage of all kinds and it’s a goldmine for those more into the video aspect of Halloween celebrating. If that’s really not your thing, there’s still a great collection of Elvira features there that I’ve never seen before and they were totally worth watching every minute of. :D

Anyways, onto the real purpose of this post. Although I didn’t get to fulfill my dreams of creating high-quality Elvira videos for October weekends, I threw together this little Monster Call last night. Play on words. Get it? Of course you do! ;)

Countdown to Halloween : Who You Gonna Call?

Since we started dating, every October, we go to the Dell Osso’ Corn Maze in Lathrop like tradition. It’s been a lot of fun each time, but we decided to shake things up a bit this year and change our the tradition for a new kind of maze. Now the plan was to go check out the new place today, but the day had some hiccups and thanks to canceling our original Halloween plans, we’re going to check it out on Halloween. I’m really looking forward to it, but my hubby is also trying to convince me to make a stop by an actual spooky haunt too. TT_TT

Instead, I spent today sewing my sister’s costume while listening to Halloween music and then watching Halloween movies. I finally got to accomplish my goal of watching Ghostbusters while eating the limited Krispy Kreme Ghostbuster doughnuts. So far, they are delicious. Not how we planned to spend the day, but it still turned out pretty awesome.

What Halloween haunt do you visit without fail every year?
