Over the weekend, I traveled to a Spirit Halloween store huddled in the back corner of a Dawn of the Dead-esque empty mall, which made the experience all the more satisfying. After a week or two of shopping the Halloween aisles of Target and K Mart, I felt ready for Spirit, the expansive, seemingly never-ending depot stocked to the brim with anything and everything you would ever need to bring your October to its highest level of creepy and spooky! There were tall haunted house pieces, life-sized witches and zombies that moved, lit up and shouted things like “BLARRRRGH!”, every sort of makeup/fake blood kit created, detailed costumes, a wonderful arsenal of masks, and when I first went in, Rockwell’s “Somebody’s Watching Me” was on full blast. How can you go wrong?!
