Spooky is the most neglected of the five basic human emotions: spooky, joy, sorrow, grouchy, and wet. Get horror glands pumping with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of costumes, accessories, and holiday décor at Halloween World in Virginia Beach. This deal is valid at the Laskin Road and Dean Drive locations through October 15, 2011.
Halloween World’s shelves brim with more than 3,000 scare-worthy and giggle-inducing items from brands including Leg Avenue, Rasta Imposta, and Fun World. Trick-or-treaters spook at the sight of Tortured Soul ($49.99), a 4-foot-tall ghoul that shakes his cage while screaming phrases such as, “Let me out!” and “Are you going to eat that?” Ably outfit formal dinners with an elegant bloody arm and hand decoration ($7.99), or grin menacingly at trespassing squirrels with lifelike vampire fangs ($2.99).
Racks of ghoulish get-ups from Leg Avenue bedeck female revelers ($39.99+), and lads dress up in a zombie costume complete with pants, shirt, and gloves ($49.99) or a pirate costume complete with a wisecracking parrot ($29.99). Pint-size partyers slip into classic Spider-Man threads ($29.99) before traversing neighborhoods on a quest for candy and justice, and families scrawl Picassos on their mugs with a family face-painting kit ($4.99).
