When I was a child, I loved stories that gave me goosebumps, was a big fan of horror movies and the fear that they cause, the simple fact of going to my room and couldn’t sleep, looking at the closet because something out of this old was there. Do you feel the same?
A lot of these movies frightened us to death. In my case two of those traumatized me: Pennywise and Leprechaun. I remember being so scared of ghosts that I couldn’t watch one in person before running away… or having dreams with goblins and waking up in the middle of the night. All of this makes me laugh right now, I don’t think the exorcist brought me that much trauma.
So as a kid that loved Addams Family saga that much that even singed their songs, It was logic, with Halloween at bay, that I wanted to take it to the physical realm, that’s why in this entry I’ll give some ideas of halloween themes so you can recreate these scenarios in your own home and make you feel part of a spooky movie.
The Addams Family Themed Lighting
A lot of people grew up watching this classical black humor TV show. We remember characters like Cousin Itt, Wednesday, Morticia and Fester Addams which made us laugh with their craziness and that we as kids wanted to imitate.
Nowadays, if you have your family and want to do something for this Halloween, you can transform your home and bring back your child spirit from the past with your loved ones.
To decor Addams style you need to start with good old Lamps but not every type works. Here in Lighting And Supplies, we have a lot of variety when it comes to lamps, in this case the one you’re searching for is a more gothic and tetric one.
This Sunlite Diamond Lamp would be able to help you in that quest, creating this spooky atmosphere starting from the living room where it should be hanging. Tell me if this Globe Lamp doesn’t resemble the crystal ball from Morticia’s Mom, you can use it as a decor in the dining table or to watch the future.
This Lamp Vanity fixture it goes hand by hand with these lamps, helping decor your bathroom with this vintage style and helping to build up this gothic atmosphere (We recommend the place to be somewhat dark)
For outside, make your home look mysterious with a Hawthorne Post Lantern so people before entering your house already know what awaits them.
Dracula Themed Lighting
This vampire lord of terror is a character that has been alive generations through generations thanks to the literature and cinema, which charmed many people. Most remember this sinister being with claws, fangs, pale color that doesn’t reflect on the mirror, all joined with a romantic style.
Many of Dracula’s movies have him situated in a castle, the place where there is all his whereabouts and coexists with all forms of living beings. One thing that’s always present in these castles are big chandeliers hanging in the dining room.
Here we have one lamp that’s a good option, doesn’t generate that much hear, far less risky at the moment of use and meets all the requirements you’re looking for in your theme.
To wrap up your romantic decor in your home, you can add these other lamps that function for exterior. For first, this Vanguard Post Lantern by Wave Lighting, you can use it as a torch in your backyard and are easily mountable. And, for the front door use this LED Outdoor Wall Light by Sunpark Electronics to dazzle your guests.
Coven Themed Lighting
According to Halloween Witches Stories these places symbolize that the last day of october is when witchcraft and satanic powers are at the highest level of the year. Although this isn’t what you want precisely for your family, you can be sure to recreate in a lighthearted way this ritual decor for your patio this Halloween.
To do this, you can decor your garden with many torches. This LED torch works well particularly for this, also you avoid dealing with the fire of real torches and the danger that entices, with a pair of these you’re good to go start with your coven.
Then, get a old table to decor or use one that you already have, put a old book (or whatever book, all works fine, just make sure that doesn’t have many letters) at the side of a candle so it looks ritualish, in a recipe glass insert some plastic eye bulbs, and some fake blood.
To finish it off, get a witch cauldron with the respective blaze, and to add more, this pentagram-like lamp right up and you have set up your coven. It seems very complicated but that’s not the case, it’s something you can do in an afternoon.
Frankenstein Themed Lighting
One of the most popular on this thematic, even though in the books this creature doesn’t have a name, it is known as this from his creator Victor Frankenstein. In the movies through the times it seems that the doctor awakened this monster through electricity but this was never mentioned in the book.
To pay a good homage, we can resemble this legendary awakening scene in your home. At the beginning, you can start checking out this Lamp. If you know how to properly use it, these two lights can be the head top for an improvised machine to “awake”.
To do this, install the lamp in a place where you can have an improvised Frankenstein bed. After this step, go find some spare cables and tie them to the lamps, two would be enough, one for each lamp, after you finish up with the lights, then use the other side and attach them to a helmet (One made up for cardboard works fine) with two big screws at the side, and then you get it, a Frankestein helmet that works for your scene.
If you want for more details, If the room is white you can make it look like a psychiatric room for the 40’s, in case you dig this style, you can opt for this Sunlite Plate Wall Scounce Vintage Style Fixture (You can use a LED bulb on it) or this Sunlite Canopy Classic Collection.
