|Scene from "The Old Dark House" (1932)|
Whenever I think about what the ideal Halloween interior would look like, visions of dark, gloomy Victorian mansions tend to come to mind (if you've ever seen the movie "The Old Dark House" (1932), the eponymous abode is the sort of place I'm talking about). Of course this also means that I consider old-fashioned Victorian attire to be fitting Halloween apparel, especially if they have a rather ominous appearance. The Lace Cobweb Shawl ($39.95) from Victorian Trading Co., dark as a stormy night and crawling with spiders, would suit the horrific holiday perfectly:
Slip on the creepy crystal-encrusted Tarantula Bracelet ($29.95) and you are ready to make your debut as a sinister Spider Woman:
Enhance your character's appearance if you like with an arachnid-inspired manicure:

As an added Halloween bonus, settle in and watch "The Old Dark House" for free on YouTube (a great old movie with equal parts humor and horror):
And afterwards, be sure to keep a wary eye out for things that go bump in the night!
