The millions of True Blood fans might have something to do with the increase in spending on Halloween outdoor lights and decorations for 2010 and what appears to be a similar trend for 2011, with an emphasis on vampires.
Love stories, even supernatural love stories, yield a significant following and the American merchandiser is thrilled to participate by providing what consumers request.
Do not let go of the pumpkin, which featured greatly in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and still sends shivers down the spine to think of such a sight.
Decorate the porch or inside windows with sets of ten Jack O'Lanterns, glaring fiercely at trick-or- treaters advancing to the doorstep. The LED Jack O'Lantern is sure to please with the orange, purple and black lit pumpkin greeting visitors for the season.
Mickey Mouse, the vampire! Well, just for Halloween. Standing on a pumpkin, this bisque vampire Mickey can go inside or outside, standing just over a foot and a half tall with a wingspread of nearly a foot. The pumpkin runs on two AA batteries. Since bisque breaks so easily, consider placing Mickey at the window, looking out at his fans as they drop by to see him at his worst.
Make things a bit creepy with strands of 10 lit skulls or ten lit vampire bats, varying between purple and orange. These adorably creepy strands of ten reflector spider lights will freak people out, although the kids might be enchanted. The 14-foot 120V AC strand uses mini lights under the spider covers and is UL approved for indoor and outdoor use.
Add to the fun with six feet of pleasant LED ghosts that change color between green, blue and purple. UL approved for indoor and outdoor use, plug a few strands together for even more Halloween spirits.
