In case your feeling your Halloween home decorations are getting a bit stale, I would suggest taking a trip to Rogers Gardens in Corona Del Mar, CA for some creative Halloween displays that will make your jaw-drop. I haven’t gone yet, but really want to make the pilgrimage from the west side of Los Angeles just to see their incredible Halloween showrooms. Rogers Gardens has been participating in creating a yearly Halloween Boutique for some time now. The 2015 year is no exception and the display this year looks absolutely exquisite. Continue reading
So this year I wanted to start making my own Halloween props for the big night. Thing is, there are a ton of great websites out there. Where the heck do I begin? I started by making a wishlist of props that I would eventually like to build and realized there were some that required lots of time, tools and experience. Then I saw the one that looked the easiest and said…”Yep, that’s the one I’ll make first”. Turns out it was the glowing eyes effect which would be perfect for indoor bookshelves or spooky bushes outside. In this article I’ll show you how to make your very own sets of eerie glowing eyes.

Is it my imagination or will creepy clowns become the most popular costume this year? After watching last night’s shocking episode of American Horror Story, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a bunch of Twisty the Clowns coming to my door on Halloween night. I really had no idea there were that many people that were so afraid of clowns in the first place. Then I started to think back to the scary clowns I’ve seen in movies and about the real life serial killer clown, John Wayne Gacy. I guess I can understand peoples apprehension towards them. After all, they are supposed to be someone you could trust to entertain your child. Maybe it’s the fact that they can get that close to someone’s heart and imagination that is so frightening. They can make you let down your guard, and when you are completely vulnerable, when you least expect it…BAM! They can turn on you and become your worst nightmare. To add fuel to the fire (literally), watch this prank where a crazy clown scares people with a flamethrower. Personally I’d run from anyone with a flamethrower! Watch the video, then let’s discuss the creepiness of clowns. Continue reading
In this video, a wonderfully staged prank is set up for some unsuspecting patrons of a coffee shop in NYC. The prank was done to help promote the movie release of the 2013 Carrie remake. The best thing about pranks like these are the people’s reactions. I think if I was in this situation, I’d run first then ask questions later.
With the holidays behind us now, we can all take a well deserved rest and catch up on all those youtube videos we haven’t gotten around to watching yet. To start you off , check out this video of the Devil Baby Attack! I’ve seen some pretty good pranks, but this one is elaborate and hilarious! Just watch innocent bystanders approach this baby carriage only to find a seething evil devil baby inside. The baby hisses and spits up green stuff Exorcist style, while onlookers scream horrified. The carriage is also motorized and can chase people via remote control. That must have been a blast to watch this scene unfold live!
