Hanging Out At The Spirit Halloween Store

It always happens. Every year an abandoned space is transformed into a spectacular store that we look forward to since there's so much to see and play with.








Yup, it's the Spirit Halloween store! It's always fun to press down on the step here circles and see what happens. I admit, I jump most of the time even if I know something is coming.





"Look, it's Slimer!" Natalie shouted. "He's so cute!"




We also found Bob Ross costumes. My son loves Bob Ross. "He makes the best ASMR videos!" He actually will fall asleep to Bob Ross videos because his voice is so soothing.




"Look at this creepy doll. I should name her Gert. She looks like a Gert."



There was also a haunted house set up. It just had different lights inside so you see how they work. I was paranoid something was going to pop out at me.




Good gracious, this dog scared me. It popped out of its house and my husband was like, "What did you THINK was going to happen?"





Speaking of my husband, he tends to get embarrassed by our antics. There he goes walking away pretending we aren't his family.



Oh well. We still have fun.

"Look, I'm a dragon from that show you won't let me watch because you say it's not appropriate for kids."




And then there was this:




"I've always wanted a black cat!"




I told the kids to pose with Jack and Sally so we didn't have to stand in line forever to meet them at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. Seriously, the line to meet them can get up to 3 hours and there's just no way.





There's also a pretty neat Hocus Pocus section. We love the movie.




And then finally I told Tommy to pretend like he was pulling Natalie. Since Tommy has autism, it's hard for him to pretend so he was like, "Huh? Do I really pull her?" and I'm like, "No, just act like you are," and he's like, "So I don't really move?"





So what did we end up buying? Well, we want an animatronic, but we don't have an extra $100+ to spend, so we went with this bat.





We named him Gus.


Natalie also picked out this Saw mask, because this is her Halloween costume:

  8. Halloween really isn't my thing, but with that being said I do like to go to the different stores and see all the interesting things they do for Halloween. I saw a witch display that was awesome. Some great ideas out there.

  9. This store looks so much fun! Halloween can be fun! If you actually have friends to share the experience with :p I'm hoping to one day get to experience Halloween in the US. It's so much bigger there than here in Sweden, but it's also really hard to know when Halloween is here. Most people do it on all hallows eve/all saints day, which is wrong, but sadly not many people here understand that.

  11. Halloween can be so fun, especially for kids. My son is just getting to the age where he can enjoy it! I would never think that a simple trip to the store can be an activity like this, but you showed that it can be! Great advice!

  28. Oh my gawd Saw!? That creepy clown gave me nightmares!! The other stuff at the Spirit shop were funny.

  29. I live ion the UK and we do not embrace Halloween as much as Americans do, which I think is a real shame, as I love it. This store looks amazing and I am actually thinking of designing something for me and my daughter.

    ReplyDelete
  30. This makes me wish I was home for Halloween. Australian's just don't do Halloween the same as Americans. It's always been my favourite holiday and I struggle with the lack of decorations here.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh yes!I just love Halloween festivals, Just by seeing such in movies...unfortunately, we don't celebrate Halloween here. Anyway, the store has so much stuff. And the costumes are as great too!

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is a store that my both daughters will love for sure! Halloween is their favorite holiday! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sounds like you guys had tons of fun. I too would definitely get spooked once in a while inside that store if we ever visit it. Your daughters costume is great, a real Halloween spooky vibe to it.

  38. It does look like such an awesome and fun Halloween store. I think the Slimer character they have from Ghost Busters is awesome. And the one from Saw is pretty intense. Very nice!
