It’s time to get “scary” with fun decorations and costumes from WholesaleHalloweenCostumes.com

 

Some of our Halloween decorations.

When it comes to decorating for the holidays, I tend to go “all out” when it comes to Christmas and Halloween. Some people might argue that I tend to decorate more for Halloween than I do Christmas. I don’t necessarily agree with that, but I do know that when it comes to decorating for Halloween, I have a blast.

When my kids were little, I tried to keep my Halloween decorations kid-friendly (even though I wanted to be as scary and creepy as possible). The older they got, the scarier my Halloween decorations became. Now that my kids are adults, I can decorate any way I want, much to the dismay of my husband. He thinks it’s weird and keeps joking that he wishes he had a “normal wife.” He doesn’t share my appreciation for things that are scary and gory.

I collect horror memorabilia. Needless to say, there is no Halloween decoration too creepy for me.

Even though we have a nice collection of Halloween decorations, there is always room for more. I love to rotate between decorations so that we’re not displaying the same ones over and over again.

Normally we are decorated for Halloween by mid-September (just about the time stores are putting out their CHRISTMAS decorations, ha ha). Sadly, my cousin took ill with cancer, and passed away. He was my best friend growing up. We lived next door to one another and we share the same birthday (he was three years older than me). I’ve just been too “down” to decorate. This Halloween is going to be unlike any other Halloween in the past, because this year we are not decorated. I have a few things here and there, but 99% of our decorations are still packed away in the basement, including my beloved life size Michael Myers (Halloween) mannequin.

Our Michael Myers mannequin that stands on our balcony and totally freaks out the neighbors.

When it comes to purchasing decorations, I love a good bargain. That is why I love shopping at places like WholesaleHalloweenCostumes.com. Not only do they have a great assortment of Halloween costumes for both children and adults, they also have plus sizes, which is great for a plus size lady like myself.

Don’t let the name fool you. Just because they have the word “wholesale” in their name, doesn’t mean that they don’t have popular, trending costumes. They have popular costumes like Descendants, Legend of Zelda, Pokeman, Paw Patrol, Marvel and The Joker, which I have a feeling will be a very popular costume this Halloween season.

My kids are adults now, so I don’t need to shop for Halloween costumes for them. I also have a costume I’ve worn every year for the past few years (a butterfly). I don’t think it’s necessarily to buy a costume that I’m only going to wear for three hours, then have to worry about finding a place to store it for the next 365 days. My butterfly costume consists of lightweight wings (silk scarf like material that fold up into a tiny square) and a headband. I wear them with black pants and a black top, which I always have in my wardrobe to begin with.

What I’m after at WholesaleHalloweenCostumes.com is their Halloween decorations. This year I’ve added some really cool ones to our ever growing collection.

Mystic Oil Slick Crystal Ball Prop Accessory – Item #SEW80708 $21.90

It’s hard to tell from my photo, but the “glass” (actually plastic) globe has a crackle appearance to it.

By day, the crystal ball has a crackled mirror-like appearance (as you can see in the above photo). When the evening approaches, flip on the switch on the bottom of the crystal ball and watch it come alive with changing lights (mostly green and blue) which give it a super creepy vibe.

This would be a fun accessory to use in a mock seance. It also looks really cool on the coffee table or on a bookshelf. The every changing lights draw your attention to it.

I like the base of the crystal ball and how it has an antique look to it.

This is a decent size. I don’t have a ruler handy, but I’d have to say it’s about 8″-9″ tall, and maybe 6″ round.

WholesaleHalloweenCostumes.com has other crystal balls worth checking out too.

Stranger Things Alphabet Tapestry with Lights Hanging Decoration – Item #R200145 $44.90

I love Stranger Things. I am a HUGE fan of the series. I watched all seasons in the matter of days (binge watched multiple episodes each day). I love the show so much that I have numerous collectibles and figurines from the series.

I have always wanted one of the “lights’ decorations for my home. I think they are really cool. When I saw that WholesaleHalloweenCostumes.com had one, I was thrilled.

I was so excited that I was getting one to review. I wish however the size of the tapestry was listed on the website. This is huge. It measures 68″ x 46”. I’m 5’3″ (63″), so this is longer than I am tall.

Sadly, this won’t fit where I wanted to hang it. The only place I can thin of is the hallway, but it’s not an area that is seen that much (unless you are coming/going from our home). I really wanted to see this every day during Halloween season (and perhaps beyond). As of right now, I have been unable to hang this up.

This is a really nice, well made cloth. It comes with the Christmas lights that you have to put in when you hang it up (it doesn’t come assembled). That is easy enough to do. It also requires batteries (not included).

3D Head in Jar Decoration – Item #F53282 $21.90

I have seen heads in jars decorations before. I always thought they were really cool. I think that they would go great with my horror memorabilia collection, as well as for Halloween. Yes, I would actually keep one up year round. Trust me when I say there is a reason why my husband calls me “weird.” LOL!

WholesaleHalloweenCostumes.com has a fun Head in Jar prop that is sure to gross out your Halloween visitors (or even yourself).

The jar is made out of plastic. I have no open the jar yet, but I can only assume the head is made out of plastic too.

It’s hard to tell from the photo, but this is a good size jar. I actually thought it was going to be smaller, so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw it’s true size.

I do wish the sticker found on the bottom of the jar (as seen in these photos) was easier to remove. I eventually got it all off, but I had to soak the jar for a bit in order to loosen up the sticker.

I am seriously considering leaving this out year round.

18” Wooden Spirit Board – Item #SI79172 $23.90

I love this! I didn’t think I would love it as much as I do. When I saw it on the brand’s website, I thought it was cool. When I saw it in person, I fell in love with it. I am seriously considering leaving this out year round as well. I just need to find a place where I can hang it up.

This spirit board is made out of wood. I love the slight imperfections it has because it gives it an aged look. With something like a Spirit Board, you don’t want it to look perfect. You want it to look old because it gives it a much more creepier vibe.

This Spirit Board does not come with the apparatus that you use to make it like a Ouija board (the thing you lightly rest your finger tips on). This is meant as a decoration/prop, not as an actual board that you use. I suppose you could use it if you have the other piece, but personally, I wouldn’t. I’ve had some crazy experiences with Ouija boards when I was younger. I steer clear of them as an adult.

Bloody Cleaver – ITEM #: 63058F $3.90 and Bloody Axe – Item #63060F $4.90

The Bloody Cleaver and Bloody Axe can be used as accessories with your Halloween costume, or you can use them as decorations/props. I am currently using them as props.

I have an actual cleaver and axe that are autographed in my horror collection. Thankfully they are not bloody looking like these props.

Each one is made out of plastic, even though they appear to be the real thing. Each one also has a decent splattering of “fresh blood” on them to make them look even more scary.

I was going to use one of them in the hand of our Michael Myers mannequin, but in the films he didn’t use these tools. So I’ll just leave the fake knife in his hand, if we decide to bring up our Halloween decorations this year.

50” Fuzzy Spider Decoration – Item #F81922 $7.90

For about the past 10+ years we’ve had a giant spider on our balcony. He looked as if he was climbing up on to our balcony. Sadly, time and the weather took it’s toll on him and we had to get rid of him. His once black fur was light gray from being out in the sun. His fur was also coming off of him. I knew it was time to replace him.

WholeSaleHalloweenCostumes.com had the nearly identical spider to the one we had to get rid of. The only difference is that the one from WholesaleHalloweenCostumes.com had red eyes that glowed (if you chose to put a battery in him and turn him on). I don’t think we’ll do that if we decide to put him outside. No one would be able to see his eyes from how high up we are, and I don’t like the idea of batteries out in the elements. If we opt to keep him inside, I will utilize his eerie red, glowing eyes.

This fun spider has legs that can be bent into a variety of positions, making it easy to find a way to “hang” him.

I love big spider decorations like this. They are fun to work with.

Bloody Hanging Foot – Item #63053F $6.90 and Bloody Hanging Arm – Item #63277F $6.90

For many years we’ve attached a leg to our balcony, so that it looks like just that one body part is hanging off (where is the rest of the body?!). When I saw that WholesaleHalloweenCostumes.com had not only a hanging leg, but also a hanging hand, I knew I had to get them to add to our balcony.

Below is a photo of the leg that we have (not from this brand). This is an older photo. Our balcony decor has changed (improved!) over the years.

I have not hung up these props yet. As I explained earlier in this post, due to my cousin’s illness and death, I wasn’t in the mood to drag up our decorations. Thankfully there is still time, so I might just get them up after all. We’ll see… In the mean time, these are super cool props that I hang from my shelving where I keep all my horror memorabilia.

Even though these are made of plastic (including the chain), they do have a realistic look to them, which I love.

Sorry We’re Dead Sign – Item #BB78958 $1.99

This one is a mystery to me. I have no idea where it went! When I first recieved these goodies from WholesaleHalloweenCostumes.com, I put everything in the closet for safe keeping. For the life of me, I cannot find it. I’m sure it’s in my closet somewhere. It probably fell behind something.

This is made out of a strong cardboard-like material and comes with a hanger so you can hang it up right away. I was going to hang this from our door when we run out of Halloween candy. I thought that would be funny.

Bloody Unrestroom Sign – Item #BB75038 $1.99

This is a really funny wall/door STICKER. This is not a window cling. This will stick to any smooth, clean, flat surface, like a bathroom door.

I’ve actually used this exact one a few times over the years. I forgot where I initally got them from, but I purchased several of them so I could have one year after year. I used the last one last year, so I was thrilled to find that WholesaleHalloweenCostumes.com had them.

I’ve never had any issues with these. They peel off quickly and easily. I have had wall stickers actually take paint off the wall, but honestly, I have not had that happen with THESE stickers. That doesn’t mean that it can’t happen, so I would use caution when removing them. Just take it slow and easy and it should peel off just fine.

Sadly, this is a one time use only sticker. You can try to safe it, but I doubt it would stick as well. But for $2, it’s a fun addition to your home’s eerie decor.

Bloody Removeable Stickers – Item #BB75039 $1.99

Just like with the bathroom wall sticker, I have not put these stickers out yet. These are also a “one time use only” type of product. I am holding off using them to see if we’re going to put out all our Halloween decorations or not. If not, I must just save them until next year.

I have used these before as well. The same time I purchased multiple of the door sign, I also purchased multiple of these to use each year. I also ran out of these last year as well.

If I remember correctly, these stick a bit more than the bathroom sticker. I would definetly take it slow and easy removing these from your wall, just to be on the safe side.

These are fun to add those “finishing touches” to your scary Halloween decor. Add some to the top of doors, your toilet tank, or any where that you want people to think there could be a slaughtered body or monster lurking about.

I love decorating, and WholesaleHalloweenCostumes.com has plenty of great decorations at budget friendly prices. I’m looking forward to many great years with these awesome decorations.
