The Curse of the Bambino
Stamford, CT (PRWEB) October 1, 2005
Folks from one to 101 like to dress up for Halloween, but why stop with humans? If you want to create a Halloween for the ages and liven up the holiday for kids and adults alike, AP9 GalleriaUSA, a leading discount membership program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, suggests that you turn your home into a haunted house of horrors that will impress party-goers and trick-or-treaters alike.
Halloween provides the perfect reason to step out of your own skin and don the face and/or garb of, well, practically anyone else. To get into the true spirit of the night, though, members of AP9 GalleriaUSA can access their benefits via DealPass to save on an extreme home makeover that will thrill and delight the whole neighborhood.
All it takes to transform your home into Halloween headquarters is a little time and a touch of the odd and eerie. Want some ideas? Step into the AP9 GalleriaUSA chamber Â
-- Create your own cemetery with tombstones made out of styrofoam boards or cardboard. Paint them gray, and write your own epitaphs Â "The Curse of the Bambino," "Rotary Phones," "Last Year's Trick-or-Treaters," or whatever strikes your fancy. Add a bewitching fog by putting a tub of dry ice behind a tombstone, and decorate the graveyard with plastic spiders and synthetic webs.
-- Flesh out your jack-o'-lantern display by attaching bodies to the heads. Stuff newspapers into plastic garbage bags, then dress the bags in old family clothes. You can also carve a bushel of pumpkins and place them strategically around the yard (leaning against tombstones, perched on rocks, etc.) and front porch.
-- String Halloween lights from your front door to the party room, then use colored lightbulbs to cast an eerie pall on your guests. A black light can create an other-worldly glow, especially with a flicker switch, and well-placed candles can provide ideal dim lighting for haunting horrors and other party pranks.
-- Gruesome grub can add a gleefully morbid tone. In the right light, a large bowl of spaghetti and meat sauce can pass for blood and guts, and a jar of peeled green grapes can look a lot like an assortment of eyeballs. And serving red wine or adding (non-toxic) red dye to the punch can quench the thirst of vampires.
-- As a finishing touch, deck your halls with creepy designs: glow-in-the-dark skeletons; cobwebs lined with spiders; construction-paper bats suspended by fishing line; window decals of witches, goblins, black cats and other ghostly images; cadavers that pop out to greet guests when they open doors; rooms shrouded in dry-ice fog; and grisly jack-o'-lanterns.
The only limits to your Halloween decorations are those you impose upon yourself, which might depend on the age range of your ghosts, er, guests. As AP9 GalleriaUSA members know, you can save on home decorations, home entertainment and much more through the program. Happy haunting!
