Your Questions About Halloween Masks Latex

Mandy asks…

How do you make good cosplay cat ears?

I would like a FREE pattern if possible, a pattern for a tail would also be nice! These have to be like… perfect, cause i don’t want to look like i was lazy and just threw a few pieces of felt together.
Preferably long tail and semi-big ears~ ^-^

{{[Do NOT send me patterns for flat un-realistic cat ears or
this: http://www.nekochii.com/products/nm_01.jpg
i do not like them D8 ]}}

answers:

Buy the best-looking CHEAP cat ears you could find and replace the felt with realistic-looking faux fur. You can either buy some cheap faux fur garments, cut them and glue them to your cat ears or buy some faux fur fabric and cut them and glue them in the cat ears. And for the inside, buy some latex halloween mask (halloween is almost near so that wouldn’t be a problem) with skin that closely resembles the inside of a cat ear. Before gluing them up, make sure to sew the latex and the faux fur together and hide the seam/stitches on the inside for them to look flawless.

Or you could make one

some cat ear patterns that i found:

http://www.fleecefarm.com/cat_ear_pattern.htm

http://www.cosplaywiki.org/index.php/Cat_ear_hat

(just the ears on the second one)

which i think would look better if you just make one on your own. Just make sure to use the right materials like faux fur fabric and latex.

If you want to make it animated, like this one

just attach some cord from the tip, going through the inside of the cat ears( of course), discreetly hidden in your hair and clothes to one of your hands. Just pull the cord to make it stand.

For the cat tail, just buy something from a halloween store and replace the felt with faux fur. If its just hanging limp, stuff it in with a metal cord/wire/coil. Just shake your booty to make it move. Or you could just make one, wrap, glue and sew faux fur in a metal wire.

Betty asks…

what are Hollywood masks made out of?

I have a good Halloween costume for next year and i want to know how to make Hollywood masks like scream or Jason. It’s going to be a skeleton with a cloak like scream and leather driving gloves with black boots. I have no idea how to make the mask though

answers:

Plastic isn’t uncommon, but the good masks are made of latex.

In Hollywood movies, typically actors wear advanced makeup so that is out of the question.

Mary asks…

Remove the gloss from sunglasses?

I’m making a latex mask of a zombie (I work at a local haunt and auditions and training start soon) and want to have an empty eye socket. I’ve used a prosthetic before, but it really messed with my depth perception so I want to try using a cheap lens instead. Any one know a good way to remove the gloss on sunglasses with out painting it? (I need to be able to see through it) Any tips are appreciated.

answers:

I used cancer. Lol. (<— has no left eye) but, nail Polish remover should take the gloss off. Or pure acetone. :)

I've always thought about being a zombie for Halloween, but my eyelid droops too far without an eye in. :(

Paul asks…

How do you make a latex mask?

answers:

First step: decide what kind of latex mask, of your face? A monster/halloween mask, just a random mask? Does it need to fit your face?

Second step: research:

answers:

Make sure at the beginning of the game you had the box checked to enable the microphone to go live on ur computer..then just hold a steady hum and keep the soundwave in the green until the end, and thats it.

Does anyone know how to get discounted tickets for Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights HOLLYWOOD?

I am trying to figure out what is the cheapest, good way to get discounted tickets for Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights HOLLYWOOD. I know Orlando has a couple different options for discounted tickets, but I have yet to hear one for Hollywood. If anyone could tell me if there is such a thing, that would be great. Thanks a lot
How do you get the discount for 10+ people? Thanks

answers:

Call group sales at universal.

It’s a very popular event. Best way to get individual tux was to order early on less popular nights.

Chris asks…

What do you think of this idea for Halloween Horror Nights 2009?

I think Orlando Florida’s Halloween Horror Nights 2009 should have the following attractions.

1. A haunted mall based on Dawn Of The Dead with Ving Rhames
2. A haunted house based on House Of 1000 Corpses.
3. A haunted house based on Tales From The Crypt hosted by the Cryptkeeper himself.
4. A haunted house based on the Saw movie.
5. A haunted house based on Resident Evil.

What do you guys think of this idea, I think it’ll be awesome.

answers:

Sounds cool but I think a scarier situation would be if you were strapped to a chair and forced to listen to Celine Dion. (shudders)

Your Questions About Halloween Decorations Outside

John asks…

How to build a spook-tackular haunted house for cheap?

this halloween me n my friends want to build a really scary haunted house. but i have to do it kinda cheap. can yall give me somw tips and tricks on how to make an outside haunted house for cheap? o and give some places to get props and decorations. Pleaze and Thanks!!! Love, Jamie

answers:

Put up tons of spiderwebs and cheap skeletons and that stuff. You know, cheap stuff that isn’t actually scary. Then just put a lot of fog. I mean, enough fog so you can’t even see a foot in front of you. Then, nobody will be scared, and when they think it isn’t scary, then jump out at them with a really scary costume.

Donna asks…

Is it possible to make a cool Pinata, inexpensively?

I know they are not much to buy one, but I am wondering if it’s possible to make a cool pinata for my son’s birthday/Halloween party.

answers:

I once paper mached a punching balloon. When it dried, I popped the balloon, painted the outside, and filled it with treats. This worked very well.

You could make a more interesting shape by using multiple balloons and adding more elaborate decorations. Add many layers so it is harder to break.

Remember to use extra paper and starch around the area where you will attach the strings (I reccomend using 3 or 4 strings)

Have fun!

William asks…

What can I do outside of school that will look good on a CV/Uni application?

I don’t play any instruments or do any clubs. I want to volunteer/get a job but I’m 15 and nowhere wants me.

answers:

Volunteer at community events, helping to set up Halloween decorations for various town events at this time of year would be perfect and they should take any age. Tutor younger students, that would look very good. Do you play sports? You can often volunteer to help coach a younger sports team. Volunteering at an elder’s home or at a children’s hospital should be fine at your age, and would look really excellent. You may need to be accompanied by an adult though.

A lot of volunteer work and jobs require you to be 16, so be patient until then. It’s awesome you’re already thinking about this stuff at 15 though, I’m very impressed! I barely thought about it at all even in my graduating year – way to go!!

Michael asks…

Any links to a costume pattern for Baby’s first Halloween?

I want to make my 6-month-old’s Halloween costume! I’m not sure exactly what I want him to be, but I plan on making the costume.

I am fairly crafty, and have a sewing machine and all of that stuff.

Does anyone have links to costume patterns?

I keep finding stuff that is along the lines of “get a black onesie, and a hat…” But, that isn’t what I’m looking for.
I was kind of hoping to find a free pattern or tutorial.

answers:

Both Simplicity and McCall’s have websites and costume patterns. Check there. Then, go to www.joann.com and see if they have that pattern. You can sign up for their online flyer and get a coupon for 40% off any one item. That’d give you a good deal on your pattern. If you’re far from a fabric store, you could order that, too.

Donna asks…

Homemade halloween costumes for a two month old girl?

I am looking for ideas for a Halloween costume for my two month old daughter. something homemade. thanks for any ideas.

Black cat – dress all in black with black hoodie. Sew on some cat ears and a tail.

Mermaid – if you are a great with a machine – make a mermaid fin in shiny green (or any color – pink would be really cute!) material. Buy a nude/beige color shirt. Put a bikini top on top of the shirt.

Ghost – white material with a hoodie

Robert asks…

How to dry lipstick onto clothes for Halloween?

For my halloween costume I have used lipstick on a shirt to make fake blood. The lipstick has been on for a few days and is still able to smudge everywhere and is wet. Is there anyway to dry it? Like with hairspray or a hairdryer? I’d be ok with it, but I’m going to a theme park and will get lipstick all over the rides etc. :S

answers:

Don’t add heat, that will melt it. Brush it lightly with baby powder or translucent face powder.

Your Questions About Halloween Fun Facts

Joseph asks…

What should I be for this Halloween party?

I’m not into the whole thing where girls use Halloween to dress like sluts in fact im really not into Halloween at all really. Normally i’ll do something sarcastic to make fun of halloween (last year i put a pot on my head…you can figure it out)
This year though i’m going to a party and I don’t want to look stupid. I know that the other girls are gonna be dressed in as little as possible and I really want to stand out in a GOOD way.
Any ideas?

answers:

You could be a queen. Braid your hair in a long braid to make it look like something from the Renaissance period. You can get crowns at Walmart. Pick the one you like the most and wear it. Wear high heels. When you pick a dress think about four things. Number 1- What looks cute. Number 2- What you feel comfy in. Number 3- If the colors stick out in a GOOD way.Number 4- Does it look like a queen dress.
Hope my idea was helpful. :)

Betty asks…

halloween is bad??????????????????????????

okay so i was talking with one my friends today. who’s a really strong religious believer. and when she was young her parents won’t let her go out on halloween. for some reason

and she also told me that around 300 kids in united states get abducted on halloween.

that creeped me out

do u guys think it’s true??
and what are some experiece u know or heard that happens to kids on halloween??

facts only please

answers:

I tried looking up some facts on halloween and i never came across anything that said children are likely to get abducted. I think your friends parents made that up to scare your friend.

Halloween is a lot of fun and there are many ways to be safe. Such as walking on the sidewalks, staying with your group of friends, having a cell phone in case you need to make a call, not talking to strangers or walking away from your group.

Iv been trick or treating all my life and never been abducted, im 23 now and still safe and sound. Its always best to check your candy when you get home because lets face it there are some bad people out there. Only once on a Halloween did my mother find a candy that was tampered with and she threw it away.

Halloween is NOT a bad holiday and i absolutely love it, its the one day of the yr that you can dress up as anybody or anything that you want! And get FREE candy and hang out with your friends.

Laura asks…

opinions on Halloweens?

I am part of a christian church, and I have always celebrated halloween, just for fun. Never dressed up as a devil or anything. But, I am feeling really guilty about the decorations my kids are putting up. I don’t want to take halloween away from them because I know that we are not partaking in evil. We just do it for fun. I was never held back from trick or treating as a kid, so I don’t want to take that away from the kids. Honestly, is it a little extreme to say that Halloween is a devils holiday?
Well, I prayed on it and ask God to show me if the halloween stuff was evil. I said God please show me in your way. Within an hour or two I got a call from the youth minister at church and he told me that the youth group is going to a Haunted Dungeons and Dragons thing this weekend. Well, I guess that answers my question. thanks to all for all your opinions.

answers:

Halloween is not an evil day or the “devils” holiday.
In fact, halloween started as a day to keep evil spirits away.
If you’re not doing anything bad–you have nothing to feel bad about.
Rock and roll used to be called the devils music—-think about that.

Paul asks…

Halloween: Fun or Satanic?

answers:

It started out as All Souls Day, a time to lovingly remember the dead.

However, that was long ago, and now it is a time for kids to have fun and get candy, at least here in the U.S. There is nothing satanic about it, despite some of the costumes trying to look scary.

There’s some psychology behind it of course. First, for kids, stuff that’s mildly scary is exciting. Roller coasters, spooky movies, etc. Trick or treat is done at night, so it makes it more fun and exciting when you and all your friends are dressed up. It’s fun. Another psychological aspect is that children are in the process of learning fact from fiction, reality from fantasy, truth from lies. This is an important skill for children to learn, and as children learn a concept, they like to make it into a game because that’s what they are excited about learning.

William asks…

What are some unique birthday party ideas for turning 13?

I am turning 13 in Nov. and I want my b-day party, to soooo cool, and something I have NEVER done before. (i have done: spa party, Halloween party, sleepover(s), dinnermoviesleepover, etc.) It has to be not too expensive, but not too cheap! have any GOOD ideas?

answers:

I suggested this before:
Movie party theme for hall or at home. Have a movie themed party. They sell decoration kit and lots of decorations for this at oriental trading. Com. If at home watch a cool movie, have popcorn and all kids of candy and junk food. Make or buy pizza and have sundaes. Have a sleep over with the girls if you want. Have a dance in a hall with this theme. Have everhyone wear a movie star costume. Favors: black gold metallic beads from oriental, directors clapboard photo keychain from oriental, sunglasses from oriental or windy city novelities (make sure to buy adult ones).

Luau, beach Hawaii: Orientaltrading has the coolest decorations and favors for this theme and the cutest tropical invitation in the bottle. Give your guests leis as they come in. Play Limbo, Hula hoop, and have a few grass skirts and everyone (including the guys) have to give hulaing a try. Again if you have room to do this at home or you can rent a small room. Tropical pinata. Twister. Hawaii site including games: www.alohafriendsluau.com. Cool invite: Flower lei and attach a printed invitation card.

Neon/Glow in the dark This is a cool theme!
Invites:
For the invites oriental trading has neon badges. They are neon nylon necklaces that have a clear plastic case. You need to make the cards on your computer using the business card maker on your computer or just use the MS Word. You might want to put a really big VIP in color and on the back at the top Nicole’s Neon Bash in cool color and font and then the party info, who what when.

Oriental trading sells Neon gangster hats.

Favors:
Oriental sells neon sunglasses.
Oriental also sells neon jelly bracelets
Glow in the dark bracelets and necklaces, lot of sites have these.
Neon Twist and Glow lollipops.
Neon nail polish u.s. Toy company
Neon lazer candy (just like pixie sticks but in neon)
Neon slap bracelet at u.s. Toy company
Decorations:
More neon themes go along with Glow in the dark.

Windy city novelties has neon tablecloths, cups, napkins. Just type neon in their search bar.

Balloons:
Shindigz has black light sensitive neon latex balloons. Again put neon in their search bar.

Shindigz also sells a neon lights personalized banner.

Oriental trading sells a neon fringe banner

Oriental trading sells neon balloon weights for the balloons you buy.

Party cheap has neon party horns and garland.

Glow in the dark sites:
glow source
shop.glogames.com Lots of games here.
Light God

U.S. Toy company sells neon body glitter.
Windy city novelties sell lumi balloons that are balloon with lights in them.

Large neon party pack (kinda expensive) at windy city novelties.

So to search for neon and glow items go to all the party sites ands put that in the search bar:

These appetizers were great at our sweegt 16:

Taco Dip:
2 softened cream cheese.
1 16oz sour cream
1 packet taco seasoning.

Mix with mixer. Put in bottom of a cookie sheet. Top with shredded cheese, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes and green onions. Use the cheese but you can altered the rest to your taste, maybe add black olives. Make 2 of these. Serve with tostitos scoops.

PUPPY CHOW
6 cups Crispix cereal
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter
12 ounce chocolate chips
2 cups powdered sugar
Melt peanut butter, butter and chocolate chips together in the microwave or on the stove. Stir into cereal. Put powdered sugar in a paper sack. Put cereal mixture in and shake until well coated.
Silver Dollar Sandwiches:
These are silver dollar rolls made by your bakery in the grocery store. We have them in our store just ready to grab, for large orders call ahead for some. Anyway they are perfect for parties, hand size, neat. You buy shaved ham, beef and turkey. You put lettuce on if you want and some cut cheese into triagles and put on. Also put real butter on on side of the bun inside of course. And have mustard and mayo packets on ice in case anyone wants that.

GAMES:
Twister
limbo
get a pinata that matches a theme if you choose a theme.

Put a certain number of candies in a pie plate, fill with cool whip or whip cream and guests have to hold their hands behind their back and find the candies to win a prize.

Buy poster of a cute actor or singer (get one of a girl and one of a boy if you are having a coed party). Anyway, put lipstick on the guest, blind fold them and then spin them a couple times and put them in front of the poster and they have to kiss it. Whoever comes the closest to the actor or singers mouth wins a prize. This can be funny, especially if boys come and they have to put on lipstick.

Police/Jail: Isheriffs badges at shindigz. Costumes and handcuffs at oriental trading.
Police line up board at oriental trading.
Police red flashing light at shindigz.
Police car cardboard standee at shindigz.
Wanted posters at buycostumes.
Get some brick wall backgrounds to make a jail room or use for the walls at the stumps p

Michael asks…

What are some fun family games to play at a Halloween Party?

The ones I came up with are “Bobbing for Apples”, a Pinata Pumpkin filled with candy, and maybe a “Best Costume”. But what else would be a good idea? Something safe and fun for the kids and even the parents. Thanks!

answers:

Pumpkin carving contest, best scary noise, decorate carmel apples, scary stories, pumpkin bowling (small pumpkins take the stems off, empty 2 litter bottles (with small rocks in the bottom to keep them from blowing over), pin a bone on the skeleton, scavenger hunt (find pumpkins, candy, masks), Decorate masks

Gross food guess:
You will need 5 or more paper bags that are made so that you can’t see through them. You will want to line the bags with plastic. You will be placing food in the plastic bags.

Items to place in bags: Modify as needed
First cut up bananas and mash them up. Then put them in bag #1. (Mashed Brains)
Then take grapes and peel the skin off of them and place them in bag #2. (Eyes)
Take stick pretzels and let them soak in water until they are still hard but a little bit soggy. Place them in bag #3. (Wet Bones)
Take spaghetti sticks and cook them so that they are soft and bendy. Place them in bag #4. (Intestines cut up)
Place dried orange peels in bag #5. (Dried Skin)

Now have the kid’s line up to take turns trying to discover what is in each bag. Before they put their hand in bag one, tell them that they will need to remember which bag had what in it. After the first person is done give him or her a pencil and paper to write down what he or she thought was in bag 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.The person who gets the most right or the closest to the right answer can receive a prize.

You may want to give each kid a few paper towels or wet naps so they can clean their hands. Also consider moving the yuckiest item last so consider moving the bananas to last and the dried orange peels to first.

Hope this helps, good luck! :)

Steven asks…

Does anyone have any ideas on activities for a 1st birthday for the older kids?

I know my daughter can’t do much but how can I keep the bigger kids entertained? They range from 18 months to 5 years old. Any inexpensive ideas?
My daughter’s B-day is December 22nd and the party is on the 18th so The bouncy house is out due to weather. And we are doing an at home party for the first few years because it seems to work better when they are so young.

answers:

We did a scavenger hunt. The parents/older kids can help out younger ones that can’t read.
We did things like find something (color), say your name really loud, give the birthday girl a hug, find (someone) and get them to give you a (something cheap from dollar store – we used shiny rocks), go give your mom a hug, ask so and so what their favorite color is, ask (someone who doesn’t know the kids ages) to guess how old you are, how many (color) balloons are there in the house, what is your daughters favorite (toy?) and so on – and at the end, they get a little treat bag! We gave out two tubs of playdoh to each younger kid ($10 for a pack of 10 or 12 I believe) and the older kids got something from the dollar store that suited their ages (little hockey sticks or whatever).

It’s not about who does it first or the fastest, but keeping them occupied and having fun.
By the time they all finished up, the food was ready and they were ready to eat too!

All I did was get the little treat bags and write up the hunt in Word to print out – and had some crayons for them to mark off what was done. I paired up the youngest ones with either their parent or the oldest kids – and they were more than happy to help out.

Other ideas:
Crafts – have them decorate something that they take home. There are little wooden treasure boxes you can get from the dollar store, or even the first letter of their name. (Depends on how many kids are showing up – and what your budget is) They can use paints, glitter etc.
You can also use paper plates or other paper shapes for them to decorate if the wooden stuff is too pricey. If you don’t want glitter/glue then you can use stickers, markers/crayons.
You can have them decorate cardboard paper crowns for themselves, just have them cut out and strings attached before they arrive.

Dress up – have larger clothing, halloween costumes or something else up and have them play with them.

Seeing as the oldest are 5 years old, you can just leave out random toys in groups for them to play with as they please too. Blocks, dress up, animals/people, coloring books, play kitchen stuff etc.

Good luck!

Sharon asks…

Any ideas for games at a boy/girl Halloween party for 11 and 12 year olds?

The party will be three hours. A parent will be there the whole time. It is a costume party. I know they are all pretty awkward at this age and they don’t want to be treated like babies, but they are not ready to act like adults do at a party (dance, talk, eat). I would like any advice on games kids this age would think are cool or fun. No video game ideas please, the party is being set up outside and there will be 15-18 kids there. Thanks!
hey steve-o: I didn’t say they wouldn’t be “allowed” to dance, only that I was concerned they would not want to.

answers:

Eye bobbing in blood (paint apples to look like eyes and put them in cranberry juice

Sandra asks…

What to do when your bored at home with nothing to do and your 12?

I’m bored at home and have nothing to do. Please any activites that could keep a 12 year old amused for a while. I’m a girl.

answers:

Top 20 things to do when bored:

1. Draw or write stories. And before you say, “I hate drawing and I’m really bad at writing!” think about all the wonderful things you can come up in your imaaaginaaaaation. Okay, forget the cheesy stuff. Really, you could go to YouTube and listen to your favorite songs, and you can watch a couple of movies as well on there.

2. Annoy your parents. Run around them, ask what time is it when you’re standing next to the clock, ruin your bedroom beyond repair, change your outfit every five minutes, then beg your mom to take you to the mall to get new clothes, make your little sister do your homework, shave the family cat, talk on the phone to your friends really loudly, or be really, REALLY quiet. It actually works.

3. Go watch TV. There are lots of channels you haven’t viewed yet.

4. Go to Google and type in, ‘Gross Facts’ ‘Unsolved Mysteries’ ‘Guinness Book of World Records’ ‘Quizilla’ and one of my favorites ‘Yahoo Answers’.

5. Make a fort. Take a bunch of chairs into the living room and put them around the place. Get a sheet and spread it over them, and get inside. Grab a book or two and a bag of Doritos and call your BFFs to come over for a slumber party.

6. Make weird goo. Grab a pan and fill it with corn starch and water. Add green food coloring. The strange thing about it is that the goo looks and feels like sand in the pan, but it turns to liquid when you pick it up. Weird!

7. Organize your sock drawer. Go to funny.com

8. Make a strange chain mail. Maybe on the best things about somebody in your class categories.
Example: Best Smile:
Zoe
Jason
Merilyn

Most likely to become famous:
Emily
Leslie
Caleb

(Or it could just be a private list)

9. Build a pinata. Get a shoe box and some toilet paper rolls and make some sort of animal. Glue or tape bits of paper over it. Put your leftover Halloween candy inside and then terminate it. But not before taking a few pictures!

10. This is something I used to love to do with my little sister. We’d take a bunch of shoes (bad idea, I know) and go into our room and close all the windows and turn the lights off. Then we’d take an equal share of shoes and spin around with our eyes closed, flinging the shoes in random directions. When we didn’t know were any of them were, we got down on our hands and knees (eyes still closed) and crawled around the floor searching for the shoes. Whoever found the most shoes won. You can just try this by yourself if your brother or sister is too ‘busy’ surfing the internet.

11. Do a funny prank. Get some toothpaste and spread it all over the toilet seat until it doesn’t look like there is any there. Then when somebody decides to go to the bathroom…well…you get the idea.

12. Blink wildely for a minute or two and then close your eyes really tightly for an interesting light show. You will see bright flashes of light, stars, blobs, and other weird things. See if some of the shapes seem to be trying to tell you something.

13. Go into a room without to many things to trip over (except for a nice chair ready for you to crash onto) and start spinning around, looking up at the ceiling the whole time. After a few minutes, you’ll be so dizzy you won’t be able to stand up.

14. Burn things with a magnifying glass. Ants are always fun to use for this, but burning the face of someone you don’t like, under some circumstances, can be just as entertaining.

15. Turn on the TV and put in on mute. Then put on your favorite song on YouTube and watch the show. This could be your best music video yet! Or, you could turn on a show on TV, but here’s the catch: KEEP YOUR EYES CLOSED THE WHOLE TIME. Listening to the show, imagine what the characters must look like and what’s happening. When the shows over, rewind and watch it with your eyes open. Say, “OHMIGOSH, OHMIGOSH!!!! I KNEW he looked like that!”

16. Pull out everything in your closet and stand in front of the mirror, trying on all kinds of outfits, even if some of them seem really dumb. Do the same thing with hairstyles.

17. Get your dolls (look, I know you have some) and set them up somewhere in the house. Get your camera and make a movie. Put in funny sound effects and weird voices. Maybe it could be a dramatic love story when Barbie meets Mr. Potato.

18. Watch a really scary movie, whether it’s the movie Prom Night or The Care Bears. Afterward, go into your closet and turn off all the lights, and stand in the darkness for as long as possible. Hey, did you hear that? Oh my god, it’s a ghost! AHHHHHH!!!!

19. Find an unused domino and turn it into a necklace. Get a bunch of magazines from around the house and cut out neat designs and small pictures to glue onto the blank side of the domino. When you’re finished, spread a thin coating of varnish over the magazine clippings and let it dry. Then ask your dad to drill a hole through it and stick some yarn through and tadaaa! You have a necklace!

20. Clean your room already!

Sorry if some of this stuff is too boring for you. I’m twelve too, and I still get bored all the time! :)

Robert asks…

When is the best time to decorate for Christmas?

If it were up to me I would’ve decorated already.Where I came from the “ber months” starts the Christmas season.The decorations come out as early as September and the radio stations play Christmas music.But out of respect for Thanksgiving I wait the day after to decorate.Thanksgiving is being upstaged by Christmas.Thanksgiving should be it’s own holiday.It would’ve been better if it fell on September or October before Halloween or even early November.So,how about you?When do you start decking the halls?

answers:

I usually have my thanksgiving decs up at my thanksgiving party…but after we’re all done eating, i literally just change my tablecloth and plug in my lights…and im officially in xmas mode! Lol

Donald asks…

Okay I know I asked two question’s already, but I have another question about throwing a halloween party?

Well I’ve never really thrown a halloween party before so maybe I should ask. How do you throw a halloween party? It’s going to be in the garage by the way a never used garage.

Any help would be great.

answers:

Are you going for fun, spooky, or a scary house? For kids or adults?

I would make sure to sweep (if the garage has cement floors) really well, and then decorate with typical things: fake webs, spiders, bats, pumpkins, jack-O-lanterns, ghosts, colored streamers (purple, black, and orange seem to match most themes), etc. You can even do red or black light bulbs to cast an muted, erie glow on the party. Remember to give out small prizes or ribbons if you play games and people win. Costume judging is fun too.

Music is great, you can buy premixed Halloween cd’s or make your own. Try classic music, like movie themes (Halloween) or tv show themes (Adam’s Family, the Munsters). Songs like Black Magic, Marie Laveau, I’ve Put a Spell On You, Witchy Woman, Magic, Witch Doctor, They’re Coming To Take Me Away, Moster Mash, etc. We always use Casper’s ChaCha Slide as a fun, new version of the electric slide at Halloween Party’s. It isn’t really spooky, but the Casper thing ties in, and most people don’t separate it in the middle of the other music. Plus it has a really good beat to it and it can be a great laugh.

You can make realistic ghost decorations by using white trash bags, and balloons. Blow the balloons up to a decent size; use a dark marker (black, blue) to draw various faces on the balloons, with the tied side down; place one balloon inside each trash bag so it fits into one bottom corner snugly (you will have a point above the balloon); tie (with string, twine, or fish line) the trash bag tightly around the balloon, being careful to keep the knot of the balloon below the knot around the trash bag ghost’s neck. To hang in trees, from porches, etc., use fish line tied to a paperclip ‘pierced’ through the point at the top of the ghost’s head.

We also do paper bag pumpkins too. These are relatively simple, inexpensive, and a fun craft to get involved in with your kids. They also make great fall decorations that you can use year after year. You’ll Need paper bags, for smaller pumpkins use lunch bags with flat bottoms, for larger pumpkins use grocery bags; green string or yarn; markers, crayons or paints, and newspaper. Stuff the bag 3/4 full with scrunched up newspaper. Gather the top of the bag and tie with string or yarn to form the stem of your pumpkin. Shape the bag to look like a pumpkin, using your hands. Decorate your pumpkin with paints, markers or crayons, as you desire.

I usually do something cool and new each year with the cake too; various things like gravestones, dirt, bubbling cauldrons, etc.

Party games:
PUMPKIN BOWLING: You can purchase a children’s plastic bowling set, complete with ball. Then use a plastic, or various fake pumpkin, as the ball instead. Have participants stand a few feet away and throw the pumpkin, just like in real bowling, trying to knock down the pins.

PUMPKIN TOSS: Use a plastic pumpkin, like kids use to collect candy on Halloween, or another Halloween style container with a large top opening. Have participants stand a few feet away and toss various items into the pumpkin. We started with pumpkin beanbags, but when we lost or ruined those we moved on to plastic spiders, small plastic pumpkins, even pennies work in a pinch.

HALLOWEEN CONCENTRATION/MEMORY: Prepare 12 post-it notes or 3 x 5 index cards, etc., using a crayon or marker. Number each post-it note from one to twelve on the front, non-sticky side. On the other side, on two cards for each, put the words or pictures: Ghost, Pumpkin, Witches, Goblins, Treats and Scarecrows. Or whatever you decide to use. Make sure each pair is not in numerical order and then place the post-it notes on a wall in two or three rows in numerical order. Each player takes a turn asking for two numbers to be turned over. Game play goes on to the next player whether or not a match is made.

WAVY WANDS (kids parties): You’ll need music that you can pause

Sharon asks…

What should I wear for the Halloween dance?

I am going to a school Halloween Dance/Masquerade Ball. I can either wear a costume or just dress nice. First answer if I should wear a costume or just dress nice. Then, tell me what I should wear in specifics. Here are two example answers: Costume. Wear a princess costume. OR Dress nice. Wear a purple dress with flats. And remember, if it is a costume no scary costumes, only ones that will look good for my date. Also say what makeup I should wear.

answers:

You should totally wear a costume… When your dressed nice it’s not as fun. The costume you should wear is completely up to you and could depend on what your date is wearing you guys could go with corresponding costumes like your the beautiful mystery girl in the mask and hes the masked and caped hottie. Or you could dress up as a gypsy, vampire, or a fairy. Personally I think dressing up as fairytale characters is cool like little red riding hood or alice in wonderland. I mean you could always go as a pirate too. Your makeup depends on what costume. I think you should just go on youtube and look at a tutorial on how to do your makeup. They usually have some sweet looks on there. Hope it helped! :)

William asks…

Is eyeliner for both the eye and the brow and how do I apply eye shadow?

I am going to be a vampire for halloween

Also, can I use the eyeliner around my lips that will be filled in with a very dark red. Or should I go with a lip liner that is close to my lipstick color. AND what do I do to keep the lipstick on without having to keep going to the bathroom and put lipstick on?

answers:

Eyeliner, it lines your eyes. Crazy, right? There are many different ways to put on eyeshadow, check out a makeup tutorial on youtube. And no, dont put eyeliner on your lips, you use lip liner for your lips, eyeliner for your eyes, shocking and revolutionary i know. As far as lipstick goes, try using a lipstain, they last longer

Mary asks…

How and where do you apply eyeliner?

I’m wondering cuz last year my mom helped me cuz I was clueless and it wasn’t even on my eyelid it was everywhere else! Then for Halloween I was a fairy (not one with a short costume and heels) and my x-BFF’s mom put glittery blue eyeliner on me and my friend and I washed it off and some was left on but it was still on and it looked kinda pretty!

My question is:
How and where do you apply eyeliner?
and
Do you wear liquid or the kind on a stick?

answers:

You put eyeliner close to the lashline and if you want a thicker, more dramatic look, you smudge it out (pencil only). Liquid liner goes on the top lash line only and can be more difficult to apply, so stick with a pencil if you are a beginner. Here are some video tutorial I have created for eyeliner:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ryIEw1Nz5I

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcnJCh3ozTk

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbQdG3Nv2Mo

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nt4RZM9UtI4

I am working on a liquid eyeliner tutorial today. You can also line the inner rim of your eye, called your waterline, but you have more risk of infection. Get an eye makeup remover and there won’t be any left over liner in the morning. Practice and have fun with it!

Your Questions About Halloween Masks Pictures

Mandy asks…

What can you musical people suggest?

I’m going to be going a Phantom Of The Opera party. I did dress up as Christine for Halloween a few years ago so I don’t want to do that again. I would love something that’s easy to put together so I don’t have to spend a lot of money. Thanks.

answers:

The big song at the beginning of act 2 is called masquerade and everyone is wearing colorful party outfits. You can get one of those old fashioned masks with feathers and bright colors and wear a bright dress. I feel like im not explaining this well, so look for a picture of the broadway production

Paul asks…

What do you do for Halloween?

Do you and your family and/or friends do anything special or fun for Halloween?

answers:

Since you asked….

I pose for lots of pictures with kids from all over (3 counties and 2 states that I know of).

My Halloween is entirely different from our celebration of Samhain came together from unusual places. Samhain is a private evening. Halloween is a family event.

I wear a sequined mini dress (it was a coctail dress for an office party over a decade ago). I wear red and black striped tights under the dress and black Mary Jane shoes. I have a big black satin witch’s hat to complete the outfit. Depending upon the weather, I have a long black satin cape and an elbow length black velvet cape,. To complete the outfit, I have a witch’s shoe cellphone carrier (from the Cracker Barrell).

We have two sets of posts with plastic chains connecting them and skulls on top of them. We set this up to keep people off the lawn. On the lawn, we have three of the 9-10′ Halloween sculptures kept up by air machines inside (like a cloth balloon). We cut 8 lunch bags like pumpkins, fill them to the tooth with sand and put a candle in each. That puts 4 luminaries on each side of the driveway.

Where the luminaries end, I set about six concrete cinder blocks in a circle like a firepit on the concrete driveway. Then I cover that with two large sheets of aluminum foil and roll it over the blocks so they don’t show. I fill the makeshift firepit with match light charcoal. On ths blocks I support a huge iron cookpot (got it at the flea market) full of warm water and light the coals.

When the water gets warmer, I use a gloved hand to drop a piece of dry ice in it. The water smokes and makes really loud boiling sounds. Warning here, always use gloves and eye protection. I keep the dry ice, gloves and extra charcoal in separate containers under a card table with a black table cloth (so nobody can see). On top of the card table is a plastic bowl of candy.

We set speakers in the carport and play Halloween music. I dance and play with the kids. I don’t wear any mask or makeup, so people know they can bring little ones up and not be scared. I dance with kids, sing to them, and always compliment them on their costumes. There are kids who know me by name and come back every year even when they have moved away. People bring their kids and cameras to make their childrens’ photos “with me and the stuff”.

I have practiced the witch’s laugh (from the Wizard of Oz) and I do that when things get too quiet.

We have a friend who is really into robotics. Since they moved to the country, they don’t have any Trick or Treaters (I usually have a 100). He is bringing up his stuff to put in my trees (like a ghost on a clothesline that runs on a motorized pulley and sips across the yard).

My real fun is playing with the Trick or Treat kids. “So you are the Incredible Hulk! I have always wanted to meet you! You aren’t going to break my candy bowl are you?” There is always a little girl dressed as a witch, “Welcome sister! I am so happy to meet you! That is a great hat! I love it, do you think it comes in my size?”

My children dress up and trick or treat, but they always come back here and dance with me.

Ken asks…

Ideas for a Halloween Wedding?

Here’s what we got so far:
Outside wedding, at night.
Everyone wears costumes.
Aisle is lit by tiki torches or jack o lanterns that are carved with our names or some love theme.
A huge tombstone as a back drop for pictures. It will read: Til Death Do we Part and have our names
Our cake will have skeletons on the top, a man an wife. says love never dies.
We will play the wedding march, but on an organ.
Some reception songs will be Monster Mash, Thriller, and Adams Family.
Any other really good ideas? For recipes, place cards, anything? I came up with the idea of making edible tarantulas. using snowballs and get black edible spray paint and paint them. use candy corn for fangs, and licorice for legs. maybe red jelly beans for eyes.
Give me some cute ideas!

An Elegant Halloween Wedding Theme

Glowing candles, grinning pumpkins and a moonlit night. What a great beginning for a Halloween Wedding. Most people can easily turn a Halloween party into a wedding, however, consider adding some polish to this special night. Here are some suggestions that incorporate elegance with pure Halloween fun.Wedding Party Attire

# Bride:

A slim fitting dress in the Mortica (Addams Family) style would work nicely. You may also choose to have your gown choice died black or red. Add a black cape with red lining, black veil and long, sleek black gloves.

# Bridesmaids:

Slim fitting black, red, or orange dresses with matching capes or sheer long scarves. Instead of a regular neckline, consider having a seamstress add a high, stiff collar to frame their faces. Use tiara’s in their hair or matching ribbons.

# Groom and groomsmen:

Wear black tuxedos with red cummerbunds. Another option would be black shirts, black slacks and a red-lined black cape with high collar and black top hat with cane (old-fashioned Dracula style).

Suggested Halloween Wedding Bouquets

Carry blood red or black roses. If you’ve decided to use orange as a wedding color, you may wish to opt for orange colored flowers such as: Orange Hawkweed, Day Lily’s, Tiger Lily’s, Orange/Yellow Freesia’s, Orange Roses, Orange Poppy’s. Remember that you can often get a variety of flowers dipped or dyed to suit your wedding colors.
Halloween Wedding Centerpieces

* Decorate hollowed out gourds or small pumpkins with black, red, orange and/or yellow flowers. Add a few props to the arrangement, such as small scarecrows, plastic pumpkins, small ghosts, gold stars or moon, etc.

* You could also hollow out miniature pumpkins and insert a votive or pillar candle inside.

* Create miniature tombstones from Styrofoam painted dark grey. Add a catchy epitaph and decorate the base with a miniature flower bouquet.

* Orange and black pillar candles in varying heights placed on small round mirrors. Tie a coordinating ribbon bow around the base of the candle. Scatter a few fake leaves in autumn colors on the mirror.

* Use wrought-iron style candelabras with taper candles.

Halloween Theme Wedding Decorations

* Decorate doorways and the front of tables with black and orange, red or yellow crepe paper. Or drape with black netting and added contrasting bows where the netting is secured. You could also wrap your main tables in miniature twinkle lights under the tulle.

* Get large dead branches (don’t cut live trees) and use as tree props. Add white, yellow or orange miniature twinkle lights to the branches. Secure in pots filled with sand and covered with shiny orange or black wrapping paper. Place around room.

* As an extra added effect, hang strings of black lights around the bar area, rest rooms and doorways.

* Make a large round moon from cardboard covered with shiny yellow foil paper and secure from the ceiling. Add a “flying witch” next to it. Create additional atmosphere with hanging bats and gold stars. If you could set this up near a wall that you’ve covered with black material, it would look awesome.

* Place a coffin in one corner of the room (you can easily make one from large cardboard boxes and paint it black). Add Dracula to the coffin by stuffing a dark suit with a white shirt, adding a cape and placing a Dracula mask over a balloon. Then make a coffin for “Mrs. Dracula”. You could also make several tombstones from cardboard boxes, paintthem in grey and/or black, add a funny epitaph and make a small graveyard.

* Instead of your usual grinning jack-o-lantern, consider having pumpkins carved in unique designs. There are many patterns available and they would provide a unique touch to your wedding. Place the pumpkins throughout the room, but be sure if you are using candles that they are not near anything flammable and cannot easily be tipped over. Better yet, consider using a battery-powered light or one that can be plugged in nearby.

* Cover the top of the tables in black or midnight blue tablecloths. Decorate these with gold sparkled fabric pens in the shapes of stars, suns and moons (use stencils that can be bought for stenciling walls with paint).

* Place a large cauldron on the main serving table and add dry ice to create a smoke effect. (Do not use this to serve drinks from).

Creepy Entertainment For Your Wedding

* Hire a fortuneteller to dress up as a gypsy and give short readings. You can opt to pay for this and come up with a set price for the evening or have guests pay for their own readings. Be sure they are kept short (5 to 10 minutes) and that the price reflects this.

* Have the DJ play songs such as the Monster Mash, Ghostbusters, Thriller, and other suitable Halloween songs throughout the evening.

Steven asks…

Halloween 2 Unrated Version.?

I’ve seen Halloween 2 in theaters, before I buy the DVD I was wondering what type of things are on the unrated version? I’d like details, thank you very much!

answers:

Director’s cut changes for Halloween II (2009):

1. The opening scene is much longer: Laurie clearly walks quite a ways away from the crime scene, and there is more with the coroners and additional shots of Loomis being put into the ambulance. Nothing really significant, but helps clarify that Loomis has indeed survived.

2. The hospital chase scene has an extra sequence where Laurie tries to cross over a pile of bodies on the floor, and fails. This sort of helps clarify that the scene IS indeed a dream. It also adds to the “remake” feel, as the red lit basement that the scene takes place in looks a lot like the one where Jamie Lee was chased in the original Halloween II.

3. The biggest difference is actually a simple change of an onscreen title: it is now two years later instead of one as it was in the theatrical. This helps solve some problems (such as why her shrink says “Halloween is a big trigger for you”) but adds others, namely that it means Michael skipped a Halloween despite being awake/alive. Perhaps the Thorn constellation didn’t appear the previous year and forced Michael to sit it out?

4. The breakfast scene is expanded; Laurie and Annie begin to bicker about going to the shrink. This is foreshadowing a plot thread that was absent from the theatrical release, which is that the two girls are no longer as close as they were.

5. The shrink scene is greatly expanded. Most interesting is when Laurie looks at an inkblot that is made up of two white horses, and the pattern between them resembles a ghostly figure of some sort. It’s a ludicrous execution (the blot is a giant framed picture on her wall) but an interesting idea, and helps tie in the “connection” Laurie and Michael have throughout the film.

6. Loomis’ press conference is much longer, as he discusses Michael’s Oedipal complex as well as the idea that Michael perhaps saw Loomis as a father figure. Sort of helps clarify how important Michael used to be to Loomis, though I’m not sure if further painting the character as a jerk was the best idea.

7. There is a scene where Laurie runs a bath and begins to freak out.

8. There are only two scenes from the theatrical that are missing in this cut (again, as far as I can recall), and this is the first, sort of. Instead of Laurie stopping to play with a pig on her way to work, she goes to the shrink and tells her about playing with the pig (and we see maybe 3-4 seconds of it, in flashback), and how it triggered a nervous breakdown of sorts. She then demands more pills and then, when the shrink denies her that, she freaks out and swears at her some more. In fact, the most noticeable change about this cut is that it gives Scout Taylor Compton several more opportunities to say the word “fuck” and all of its variations.

9. Another fight between Annie and Laurie (including the line from the trailer where Annie says “You act like you’re the only one who got messed up!”), which kicks off when Annie finds Laurie drinking a beer in her room.

10. In the scene that is most likely to piss off the “purists”, a non-masked Michael walks through yet another field, albeit in broad daylight this time. He comes across a billboard for Loomis’ book, and he looks at it angrily along with the ghosts of his young self and Sheri Moon.

11. When Laurie and Maya (Brea Grant) come home from the party, there is a short added scene of them making tea in the kitchen prior to going upstairs. We also get a shot of Michael seemingly walking out of the house.

12. The best addition to the film is a longer version of Brackett finding Annie’s body. After a few “No!!!”s, we see quick video flashback footage of a young Annie (obviously personal footage of Danielle Harris from when she was 7 or 8) as he weeps near the bathroom door.

13. The 2nd scene that is changed and thus removing theatrical version footage is the climax. Once Loomis enters the cabin the film is completely different. Michael doesn’t kill Loomis inside, instead he throws him through the wall of the cabin and yells “DIE!” (for real) before thrashing him in plain view of the cops. The cops then open fire and kill Michael (similar to the original ending of H1). Laurie then comes out, takes Michael’s knife, and approaches Loomis with it, apparently planning to stab him. The cops then open fire on her and seemingly kill her. We then fade to the same hospital footage from the end of the theatrical cut, only now it appears (to me anyway) that we are seeing Laurie’s version of the afterlife.

Michael asks…

Why do people celebrate halloween what dose holloween have to do with us?

answers:

Halloween has changed quite a bit from it’s roots. The Celts celebrated Samhain at the same time we celebrate Halloween and November 1st, which was the end of the year for them. A harvest festival, part of Samhain’s purpose was to strenghten the sun so it would survive the dark months ahead. Remember, thousands of years ago civilizations were far more agrarian than today’s industrial society and the sun was extremely important for the grow season. The Celts believed that during the dark winters months when the days were at their shortest there were dark forces that tried to snuff out the sun and it had to be strengthed to survive the winter. To do this the Celts built immense bon fires and held rituals intended to strengthen the sun around them. Samhain also marked the time when the spirit world and the mortal world were at their closest and demons and spirits crossed over. In order to avoid being targeted by these spirits and to scare them off the Celts wore terryfying masks. They also made lanterns out of turnips with horrible faces into which they’d place the coals of the bon fires into, these were used to protect their homes from these spirits.

Then you have Christianity come into the picture. The early church didn’t go around saying “you’re religon is false, you must worship our god and give up everything you used to do associated with your religon or you’ll go to hell” when trying to convert people to Christianity. That was one option and one that usually didn’t work. The other option was to use pre-existing forms of meaning and celebration but change their meaning. People were already gathering for a reason, if you use that reason but change the meaning people were more accepting. In the case of Samhain the meaning was the hallows. Hallow is an old word meaning Saint. November 1st is still All Saint’s Day, the feast day for saints that didn’t have their own feast day. Or All Hallowsmas (mas was used to denote a feast day, Christmas being the feast day of Christ, Michaelmas was the feast day of St. Micheal). And the night before was All Hallows Eve or All Hallows Evening. So Samhain actually became a Christian holiday dedicated to the Christian saints, something that those who try to denounce Halloween don’t want folks to know.

As the centuries passed elements were added and others were unsuccessfully tried to be eleminated. The turnip lantern and the horryfying masks remained though there was some attempts to rid them. Soul caking was added. What was soul caking? Good Christians would go door to door asking for soul cakes, these were little cakes that were believed to aid the souls of the recently departed to the afterlife. But as time passed All Hallows Eve, which became shortend to All Hallow’een, became more a time for parties for adults and less a religous time. Large gatherings were held in which the community would gather for singing, dancing, eating, playing of games, and telling of stories, usually ghost stories.

When the New World was settled those settling it brought many of their own customs. These included All Hallow’een customs including the parties, masks, and turnip lanterns, or jack-o-lanterns as they were known. And the new world offered new elements for the festivities. For instance the pumpkin came to replace the turnip as the vegetable of choice for the carving of jack-o-lanterns as it was bigger and easier to carve.

But Hallow’een, as it was being shortened to, was still largely an adult holiday until the late 19th century when more and more parties were being held for children. By the turn of the 20th century Hallow’een was more a children’s holiday, but still not as we know it today. It wasn’t until about the late ’20s to the mid ’30s that it really began taking today’s shape. Prior to that time Hallow’een was becoming a dangerous holiday in which pranks, often destructive in nature, were being played. Many community began considering outlawing Hallow’een because of the danger involved. And then some communities changed it as it was that kids really didn’t have anything to do on Halloween. Soul caking, which had largely disappeared, returned in a new form. Trick-or-treating. Same basic idea, kids were encouraged to go door to door for treats, though without the religous overtones. Trick-or-treating also took on the masks of old as costumes for the trick-or-treaters to wear.

It was the baby boomers that really finished Halloween’s, by now in it’s modern form of spelling, transformation. As they grew older many baby boomers didn’t want to give up the fun of their youth and Halloween parties for adults once more became popular.

Your Questions About Halloween 2007

George asks…

Halloween 2007 (Ending)?

Okay, so I saw this movie. I actually dug it, but that’s not what this is about.

In the Halloween 2007 I saw, Laurie and Michael plummet off of the house balchony at the end. Laurie wakes up, finds a gun, and after some hesitation, caps michael in the head, screams, and bam, over.

Now, here’s a question: In all the media reviews and youtube clips I’ve been watching, there is a COMPLETELY different ending where Michael goes down in a hail of gunfire from the police squad.

…WHAT IS UP WITH THIS
Ruben — yeah, that’s what I’ve been seeing, and that’s what my question is about. Did we see an alternate ending? What the hell is up… I swear to god, in the movie we saw, Michael kills Loomis, and Laurie shoots him in the head as you hear police sirens nearing. In the clips I’ve been watching, he goes down in the aforementioned hail of gunfire. Hmm…
Here’s an excerpt from Wikipedia:

Laurie mounts Michael and aims Loomis’ gun at his face; she repeatedly tries to fire, but keeps hitting empty cylinders. Suddenly, Michael’s hand springs to life and he grips Laurie’s wrist. Laurie pulls the trigger one last time, and the gun fires into Michael’s face, splattering Laurie with a torrent of blood. She screams; her screaming face becomes superimposed over the face of the infant Laurie crying in old home movies of Michael playing as a child, which play over the end credits.

…I must get to the bottom of this!

answers:

The version where Micheal goes down in a hail of gunfire is the Work Print version ((Which was Leaked)) before they edit parts out and change things for final release in Theaters ((which is also why others seen Halloween before the actual release)), the Final Version is when Dr Loomis Dies and Laurie shoots Micheal in the head. :P So yeah thats what everyone gets for downloading pirated versions, now go see the Final cut.

Joseph asks…

Halloween 2007 movie?

i have watched both Halloween movies (1978 and 2007) and i must say i liked 2007 more. but i have so many questions about the movie.

like did Dr. Loomis die?

did Michael die?

cause in the original he is shot in the head a few times yet he walks away.

and if they are dead then how will there be an H2??

just wondering. and props to John Carpenter.
i thought Loomis dies cause michael starts crushing his head.

its expected that Michael doesn’t die. Hell, he was shot a few times and stabbed. yet he lives.
i know of the terrible sequels in the Halloween movies. and i know that H2 is coming out in August.

i just finished the 2007 remake and it seemed like Loomis was dead. We know michael isn’t dead. it just seemed that way.

answers:

Loomis did not die, after Michael squeezed his head, he tripped Myers when Myers was going after Laurie.

Michael was perceived to be dead, but is scheduled to return in the upcoming sequel, so he did not die either.

There will always be a sequel when the audience wants one bad enough. Horror movies especially get sequels because they are incredibly cheap to produce and can generate massive box office totals with loyal horror fans.

BTW, I disagree with your opinion and think that the 2007 RZ remake can’t even hold a candle to the original 1978 Halloween. I hope this does not affect your decision to give me my rightful “Best” rating. Lol.
