Pumpkins, this is not your year. You’ve had a good run, but Halloween 2016 belongs to PINEAPPLE JACK-O’-LANTERNS.

Here’s how to make your own pineapple porch fright. It’s easy!

What—? DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT THIS YEAR, BELL PEPPERS. Try again next October.

Howl O’ween

It’s not so easy to come up with the perfect Halloween costume. These dogs have put a lot of thought into it and come up with something to bark about.

Here’s a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. Donatello, to be exact, the team inventor. This crafty canine definitely exhibits Donatello’s special genius for cobbling together something special from stuff he’s scrounged from the trash heap.

The Dynamic Duo lives again in doggy form! Batman and Robin are ready to save the day. And fetch.

This greyhound doesn’t need to chase the bus. He IS the bus. MIND BLOWN.

And, in the not-so-subtle-hints department, these fast-food impersonators are practically shouting “Fill the dog bowl, silly human!”

House haunters

Toward the end of October shuddersome shacks attract house-haunters looking for a pad to possess, and hair-raising hangouts put an Unwelcome mat by the front door. Dying to meet your neighborhood poltergeist? Knock at your peril. But don’t be surprised if your ghost host avoids the living room.

Oh—and be warned. Why are haunted houses always the tallest in town? Because they’ve got hundreds of horror stories!

This house in Beverly Hills, California is known as the Witch’s House. It was built in the 1920s to serve as a movie set and office quarters for a film company. I can’t imagine a more Halloweeny trick or treat destination.

Los Angeles Times writer Alison Martino and photographer Stephen Russo went behind the scenes to meet current owner Michael J. Libow and take a peek inside his enchanting abode.

No! That’s not Michael. This is Michael.

And it’s clear to see that his home is a fairy tale inside and out. Happy Halloween!

Steampunk’ins

Do Jack O’Lanterns have to be pumpkins, or can they be made of metal? My favorites this Halloween season come from craft company Mel’s Make Believe, not a pumpkin patch. These wonderful Halloween sculptures are manufactured from mechanical bits and pieces in the style of steampunk, the type of science fiction where old-fashioned machinery takes the place of futuristic technology. Each of Mel’s steampunk Jack O’Lanterns is a one-of-a-kind original with its own spooky personality. They all bring the spirit of All Hallow’s Eve to life, and they’re guaranteed not to rot the next week! Happy Halloween!
