Alright, after grousing that Halloween stuff appearing in August is too soon, I'm ready to go all in now! Although Autumn doesn't "officially" start for about a week and a half, it's getting cooler and that crispness is starting to creep into the air ever so slowly.
If you have a blog and are going to be posting about Halloween during October, be sure to head over to the Countdown to Halloween site and register! It's a great community and a way to discover some new blogging buddies. You don't have to post every single day of the month, but some people do. I don't know if I'll be able to keep up for all 31 this year, but I'll definitely be contributing when I can.
You can also join in the fun with Strange Kids Club's annual HalloWatch. See something Halloween related that's cool? Snap a pic, post to Instagram and tag #Hallowatch and @StrangeKidsClub for a chance to have your pic featured on the site.
If you need to treat yourself to a little something to start getting in the holiday mood, check out the Universal Monsters ReAction figures. Entertainment Earth recently put up an exclusive translucent Invisible Man. They also just announced a new wave of Alien figures, including a metallic Alien and two Kanes: one with Facehugger and one with burst chest (dancing baby alien with top hat and cane not included).
And you should also definitely check out the brand new single from Salem's own Scary Mary and the Audio Corsette which just came out. It's 80s-tastic! Preview it here on iTunes. They're having an 80s Halloween dance party in Salem at the end of this month and I hope I'll be able to go, it should be awesome.
