It may not even be summer yet, but if you ask me, it’s never too soon to start thinking about Halloween.
My dislike of summer is no secret — I basically complain about heat and bugs the entire time — so the sooner fall gets here, the happier I am.
Halloween means more than just near-perfect weather, however. From candy to costumes, scary flicks to spooky songs, it’s at the top of my list when it comes to holidays.
If, like me, you’re already planning your decorations for the coming holiday, I have some exciting news.
Oriental Trading, who gave us a fabulous mermaid skeleton decoration last year, has done it again, this time with two mythical skeletal beings to choose from: unicorns and dragons!
I have to say, while the unicorn is actually a bit cute with its shiny horn, the dragon is quite terrifying.
With fangs the size of fingers, horns and bony wings, you’ll definitely want the dragon if you’re looking for some screams this Halloween. Seriously, look how eerie this thing is:
That’s one fierce-looking skeleton!
Oriental Trading tells Simplemost there will also be other skeletons added to their website in the months leading up to Halloween, including a monkey and a life-sized cyclops.
Those would look great sitting alongside the more traditional Halloween skeleton decoratons you probably already have stored somewhere in your home.
Add in a few pumpkins, and your spooky decor will be all set!
If you prefer a fancier version of the conventional Halloween skeleton, you can also find a life-size skeleton colored gold! That’s right — you’ll all get the spookiness you’re looking, but with a little added glitz and glam.
Will you be going all out with the skeleton theme this Halloween?
