when I was little my next door neighbor was a hollywood special effects guy and so of course he had the best "haunt" he had talking/singing heads in his window. They were really cool and they had a ohhh scary but i want a closer look type of alure lol. I went to his house for treats quite a few times just to look at them, plus he gave out peanut butter eyeballs. lol. quite awesome. No one remembers his name, or else I would look it up and write him a letter saying how he inspired my love of halloween. I also have partial memorys of me wearing various costumes but I'm not sure of my ages. I remember wearing a big pumpkin costume and standing in my house fiddling with the vine on the costume, and I remember once it rained and to my little kid eyes i thought it was flooding, the streets gutters were full of water. lol.
