Halloween Town

One of my favorite things about New Orleans is that the whole city goes all out for Halloween. Seeing all of the beautiful old houses decked out with equally macabre and whimsical touches just makes me smile.

Halloween Town

Obviously this house takes the cake (or candy - zing!).

Needless to say, we got a lot of "Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice!" calls on the street :-)

I think the skeleton posed as The Scream is my favorite. But the reclining/snoozing Lazy Bones is a very close second! Great costumes, too! I bet it was bunches of nutty fun in N.O. last weekend.

And you guys make such a delightfully devilish Beetlejuice pair! :)

I wish people decorated their homes like this in England, but alas they don't do anything. I was too lazy to do anything for Halloween but I've loved looking at people's blogs to see what they wore :D Your costumes look amazing!

Johanna said...

Love, love, love these pics and great costumes!

Christina said...

Love it! My boyfriend was beetlejuice and I was pippy longtocking. I like seeing this as a couple costume. Very nice.

The Frocker said...

Lorena said...

When I first saw this I was like, this is definitely not DC around Halloween. Last year I saw more vomit around DC than I cared for. My cousin was visiting that weekend and I felt bad that that was the version of the city she saw. However NO would be fabulous for the holiday! Love the Beetlejuice costumes. I need to watch that film again

Oh my gosh, i can't even tell you how sweet this is, so I won't even try. Oh wait: this is AWESOME. Too amazing. And the photos of the mansion(s?) are gorgeous, too. I'm so jealous. SO.

Ebony said...

Love it love it love it. I adore decorations of all kinds and unfortunately since I live in an apartment, I never do it. Those homes are amazing!

Halloween is definitely in my top 3 holidays! Your couples costume is so classic.

Teresa said...

I'm just now catching up with my blogroll so please excuse the delay. I have to say that this is the best costume. Really and truly. I am a HUGE Beetlejuice fan.

I agree about N.O. New Orleans at Halloween is beyond amazing. It's really quite a surreal experience. Makes me miss that city. Haven't made my yearly trip back yet.
