Tourist Costume for Passing Out Candy #SpookUptheFun

Are you staying home and passing candy out this Halloween? Even if you’re not going door to door with the kids or heading out for night on the town, you can still have a little fun and dress up for the holiday.

Halloween spirit starts with you!

If you’re fresh out of the usual mummy, Frankenstein or Edward Cullen costumes, you can throw together an easy ensemble that will be a little wacky but comfy too. Rather than anger the wife by cutting holes in her favorite Eqyptian cotton sheets for a quick ghostly getup, opt for a simple tourist costume made from a few FunSlurpian favorites and items you have right in your closet!

1: Pull that Hawaiian shirt your mother-in-law bought you while she was on vacation out of mothballs. It’s finally going to have its chance to shine.

2: Grab a pair of shorts from your dresser! Go ahead and pat yourself on the back for not packing away your summer clothes yet. It’s like you knew you’d still need it.

3: Head over to FunSlurp.com and grab a pair of Sock Sandals and our handy, dandy Umbrella Hat. If you’d never rock socks with sandals and want to keep it authentic, you can also opt for Red Sneaker Socks.  The great thing about the sock sandals and sneaker socks are that they complete your costume in a comical and comfortable way. Go for that little extra; you won’t regret it.

4: Optional additions to this simple costume are your fanny packs to hold candy, a camera around your neck for some touristy accessorizing and of course, the always awesome Binocular Flask.

On Halloween night, while others are squirming in their cheap-o store-bought costumes, sweating under a mountain of makeup, you’ll be lounging about, easy and breezy in your tourist costume.

Halloween Treats for Your Furbabies #SpookUptheFun

What’s wrong with Halloween going to the dogs or cats a little bit? Human children shouldn’t be the only ones to get treats during the haunting season, especially if you’re the pet parent that insists on Fido or Fifi wearing a costume each year.

Including your dog or cat in the Halloween fun is a simple way to express heartfelt gratitude for being your best buddy through everything. And, allowing you the honor of cleaning up their poop day after stinky day.

Halloween Treats for Dogs

There’s nothing as satisfying as a good undead squeaky toy on a brisk October day. If you get your chihuahua, Hercules, a Zombie Foot Dog Toy, he’ll be as happy as a pup with a dismembered vinyl foot. Plus, he’ll be prepared for any walkers who pop up in the neighborhood should there be a zombie apocalypse.

If creepy dog toys aren’t your thing, you might take to the kitchen and make him some homemade dog biscuits in the shapes of our popular Gingerdead Men.

Halloween Treats for Cats

Cats are pretty much like toddlers. They’re attracted to simple toys like boxes and string. So, when gifting something to your mouser friend, you might as well get things that you’ll enjoy, like say, an Inflatable Unicorn Horn. You can say it’s for her, but we all know that you’re the sole beneficiary of this gift, and, dude, that’s totally okay. Happy Halloween to you.

If you feel the need to try to hide that the Halloween treat you’re getting for your cat is for you, grab her the Cat Keyboard Scratcher. While she claws the crap out of it to your Best of Billy Joel playlist, you can shoot videos to share with your friends. (Bonus points if you incorporate the unicorn horn.)

People spend loads of dough on their human children at Halloween time, and furbabies are often left out of the fun. Be a better pet parent this spooky season and grab your dog or cat a treat that will keep him from leaving a homemade trick on your pillow.

Freaky Dashboard Buddies for Halloween Cruisin’ # SpookUptheFun

People have been mounting hula women and the mascots of their favorite sports teams on their dashes for years, but for those of you with a…shall we say…discerning taste, these freaky dashboard ornaments are for you. They’re cool. They’re disturbing. And, they’re fiendishly waiting to be featured prominently on the dashboard of your hoopty.

The Dashboard Eyeball Wiggler is a giant eyeball with a fez. How creepily messed up is that? It wiggles and it jiggles, but it won’t get any weirder, unless it comes to life on Halloween night!

Slicey Dashboard Pig Wiggler is something you’d likely see on the dashboard of Jigsaw from the Saw movies. He seems to be a happy go lucky pig perfectly content in carving himself up for Sunday dinner. There’s something so wrong at the pleasure he seems to be getting at cutting himself open. It’s completely demented, and we love it.

Is it strange that the Dashboard Zombie is the most normal one we have? He wiggles around like he’s doing an undead version of the Humpty Dance. He just needs a fake nose and the blood of the innocent to be complete.

Why not take all three of these guys home and make sure every ride is a hauntingly freaky time!?!

The BEAST: Giant Fist Drink Koozie – The UnCostume #SpookUptheFun

Every party has a pooper, especially when it comes to dressing up for Halloween. Rather than spoil your evening arguing with your fella over whether or not he can go out without a costume, meet him halfway with The BEAST.

The Beast Close Up

The BEAST is a giant fist drink koozie that will give him an instant costume without making him have to work at it. In fact, everyone will be jealous of his clever gimungo drinking accessory and want to dress up as him next year!

All your uncostumed companion has to do is slip his hand into The BEAST and hold on to the inner handle. Then the huge fist will hold onto his beverage, and he can walk around the party in his otherwise normal attire.

Huzzah for The BEAST, the official uncostume of 2014!

Gifts for Undead-Obsessed Zombie Fans #SpookUptheFun

They’re gross. They shamble. They have terrible hygiene. They eat people.

They’re zombies, and try as we may, we can’t help but love them to pieces.

To celebrate the return of the world’s favorite TV show starring decaying corpses, The Walking Dead, I’ve put together a collection of gifts for zombie fans on Day 12 of our 31 Days to Spook Up the Fun.

Zombie Eye Mask

Halloween Then and Now #SpookUptheFun

As a child I remember waking up on Halloween with the same excitement that I had on Christmas day. In only a few short hours, I would be knee deep in chocolate and scaring the neighbors with my costume of the year.

I loved costumes. I was a vampire, devil, ghost and even Rainbow Brite one year — spooky. As I got older, I became just as interested in the tricks as I was the treats. The little tricks like fart spray and fake roaches were ammunition in my prank arsenal. (I grew up with an older brother, so it was basically self-defense.)

Eventually, I got over the pranks and instead focused on the decorations and my children’s costumes. I keep trying to get my husband to dress up every year and he keeps shooting me down. I’ll never give up though.

Halloween isn’t just about the scares and the candy. It’s about being a kid again. We’re constantly railed with the trials and tribulations of being an adult. It’s all about working and paying the bills, but we never get to have the kind of fun like we did as a kid.

Sitting out on my front porch with my bowl of candy in hand, I get a thrill as little ghosts and goblins come searching for my bag of goodies. I love trying to figure out what the costumes are and marvel at the ingenuity of some of these parents.

When the night is over, the porch light goes off and all the little one head to bed with bellies full of chocolate. I like to stay up for a little while and watch a scary movie with the hubz. I guess there are some advantages to being an adult on Halloween.

Unique Latex Masks #SpookUptheFun

Winter is coming, and if you’re going to survive the coming onslaught, then you’ll want to be a crow. No, not that kind of crow; I mean in our crow’s head latex mask.

Halloween is quickly approaching, and you’ll want to find a mask that will set you apart from everyone else.

 

The crow has long been associated with Halloween and ill omens. Our latex crow mask is so lifelike you’ll want to get together and form a group…a murder…of crows. Do you know why they call it that? It’s because they’re badass, that’s why.

The last thing you want to look like on Halloween is a horse’s ass, so look like his head instead. You’ll be getting dreamy eyes from Mr. Ed, so watch your tail. The latex horse head mask is perfect for anyone looking for a little anonymity with their awesome.

Pigeons have long been called rats with wings, and what can be more appropriate for Halloween than a rat? Our winged rat mask…excuse me…pigeon mask is so lifelike people will start trying to feed you stale bread. So, it’s like getting a meal for free too. Boom!

Tired of the real life animal masks, why not shove a raw turkey on your head. Ok, not the best idea, you’re just asking for a skin rash and salmonella, but you can get that look with our latex turkey mask. I really can’t think of anything more disturbing than some dude wearing a raw turkey is head. Instead of Leatherface, you can be Poultryface.
