For some, rolling into October marks the beginning of the spooky season, but for horror lovers, September is the unofficial start of all things supernatural. This means that aside from decorating your crypt, you will want to find other activities that will help you to prepare and really get into the spirit. We’ve compiled a list of three ways to get ready for the spooky season. Check it out below.


Decorate your crypt 


Constructing a spooky atmosphere in your home is one of the best ways to ring in the season. It’s time to sort through the Halloween decor you own to remove broken and worn-out items and make a list of ones that you want to replace. September is a quiet time for Halloween decor shopping, which means you will get the widest selection of good horror decor with plenty of time to order online and receive your items in time. Some items such as pumpkins and scarecrows are festive for fall and can be put outside now up until Halloween, while others like witches and ghosts can be reserved for display next month. That said, when it comes to your home’s interior, we invite you to go nuts early!


Start planning your costume


Whether you make your outfit from scratch or prefer the convenience of online shopping, nothing is more exciting than choosing a Halloween costume—spooky, funny, gory, or cute. Whatever you decide, it’s important to wear something that you will feel comfortable in. 


Shop our wide selection of horror costumes early to get the best pick and if you want to keep things simple, consider a horror t-shirt to get you into the spirit early and acceptably. 


Start binging those horror movies


As a horror fan, you indulge in macabre all year long. However, there’s something comforting about watching horror flicks when the leaves start to fall. Since there are so many Halloween-specific favorites, it’s best to start watching them in September to ensure that you can fit time in for all. Be sure to watch the classics alongside anything new in theatres or on streaming platforms. It’s the spooky season after all!
