For some people on the World Wide Web, this will be their first time
seeing a Virtual Haunted House or shopping for that perfect costume online, but
don't feel bad, this is my first time too. The WWW has a large selection
of Halloween specific sites from a Virtual Haunted House, to poetry about
Halloween, to benefits to sponsor a needy charity.
The first stop on our voyage to October 31st is to pick up the
perfect costume. For an absolutely huge selection of costumes, you could
stop at Tombstone
Productions or the Halloween Costume Mart. If
you prefer to see what you're buying before you shell out the cash, stop
into the Steven's Magic
Emporium. All of these places have large selections and online
ordering to make your Halloween less stressful.
After we have purchased our costume, we definitely have to show it
off. For this, we jump off to The Witches Ball.
The Witches Ball is in Boston, Massachusetts and benfits the Hospice at
Mission Hill in Boston. With live bands or other great events, this
should be a lot of fun. If this doesn't suit your pace, you can stop by
the Famous Dead
Person's Ball. This page will give you information on what to wear,
where it is, and other great stuff. If you're going, reserve your
tickets before October 15th. If you're not sure about going to a
Halloween Party in some strange place you've never been, take a look at
photos from the past Hallowfests in
Cincinnati, Ohio. This will give you an idea of what those parties are
After enjoying a nice party out on the town, take a stop off the
beaten path and check out some of the WWW's darker sides with a stop at a
Virtual Haunted House. The Halloween
Haunt on the Web is an event held by Knott's Berry Farms in Anaheim,
California. This page contains commentary and history through text,
images, and movies about the Halloween Haunt at Knott's Scary Farm from a
past monster. Jumping to a Virtual Haunted
House created by 6th, 7th, and 8th graders in Ms. Petro's, Ms.
Bliz's, and Ms. McCullen's classes at Discovery Middle School, Orlando,
Florida. There are great pictures with links to their Haiku poetry.
Going into the depths of the WWW, we can jump to the Haunted Corners of the
Web. This is a great place to find out what you're made of with
these great links.
After Halloween is over, the fun won't stop. The Night Gallery
is "Halloween 365 days a year." With links to Splatter Flicks, Screaming
Women, The Rude Things in My Fridge, and Body Music. This is a great
site with beautiful graphics that stays after the holiday. The Castle
Phantasmagoria is one of Yahoo's Choice Websites and has been
featured in Boardwatch and the .net magazine. With scary things to
download and links to everything from Edgar Allen Poe to sites offer
Vampire fangs, this site is a virtual graveyard.
Hopefully, this will give you enough links to explore through the
Halloween season, but if not, check out Yahoo's collection or do a
WebSearch for Halloween or Horror.
