Ah, Spirit Halloween. You are to Halloween what Cadbury is to Easter and Starbucks is to suburban white people after Labor Day.
Our yearly spooky decorating routine was starting to feel like it had lost some steam until we discovered the seasonal novelty, decoration and costume brand’s Zombie Arm Pathway Markers. After all, we love the ominous dark atmosphere our graveyard scene creates, but we found ourselves torn between the perfect shadowy ambience of the Witching Hour and trick-or-treaters being not face-planting along the walkway to our door.
This year, compromise wins: we’ll top off our macabre front yard display with lanterns held aloft from half-buried arms of the undead. These three gruesome path markers even play an assortment of chilling sound effects, with a little help from their two included AA batteries.
Thanks, Spirit. We can now calling our local med school daily until October to inquire about “renting” a few disused cadavers.
