braids for your bangs Reyne Gauge: Halloween Isn’t Just For teenagers!
Halloween has long been my favorite holiday. As a child, my brother and i created haunted houses with our neighbors, weird “goo” for youths to have to stay their hands in that we called brains. Scary costumes and creepy music and the day/night were complete.
As an adult, I assume I never grew out of eager to create creepy scenes, and come up with a “to die for” costume. A few of my favorite outfits were Bride of Frankenstein, complete with a early 1900’s wedding dress and veil. Mommy Dearest with an excellent 50’s outfit, bob black wig, and martini glass and wire hangers to hold. I event went as Christina Applegate one year when she was on Married with Children. (My friend went as her mother on the show, we were quite the hit!)
One thing I never collected, though always wanted to, was vintage Halloween items. Papier-mache pumpkins, black cat noisemakers, old costumes… I will admit I have bought numerous vintage Halloween postcards over time, mounted them on to black stock cards and sent them to good friends.
Apparently I am not the only kid trapped in an adult’s body with a passion for Halloween. The folks at Dan Morphy’s Auctions (www.morphyauctions.com) shook the trees and managed to find hundreds of enthusiasts who were willing to plunk down serious money for a Halloween “treat”.
The sale consisted of 887 lots, (Halloween AND Christmas items), and brought $370,000. There have been 100 people in attendance, 150+ on the phone and over 400 on the web vying for the holiday goodies.
Considered one of the top lots was a German veggie man, complete with radish arms, and a watermelon head. As a bonus it also had eyes that moved from side to side. It was thought to be a store display. It had a pre-sale estimate of $10,000-20,000 and brought $19,550.
And what sale could be complete without a kind of papier-mache lanterns I’ve always wanted. They’d a 7.5 inches tall one with a comical grin that was estimated at $2,500 – $3,500. It sold for $10,350.
The identical price was achieved for a set of nodders; which included a witch, a cat, devil, and three pumpkin heads. I do not think my bobble head doll has ever sold for that kind of money!
It is safe to say this week after i attend Round Top, I will be on the hunt for some unique Halloween items to help decorate my home this year. Knowing there are reproductions of this stuff, I hope to not be “tricked”.
