It’s The Great Month Of Scares Scavenger Hunt: RESULTS

This is it, everyone! Post your Month Of Scares Scavenger Hunt photos in the comments (again, please link to a public album if you have multiple images). I can’t wait to see everyone’s black cats and spoopy pumpkin spice anythings!

To give everyone time to post, and myself time to look through all the pictures, I’ll announce the winner(s) on Monday, and will also email them so I can get their address(es) and send them the spoils of victory (some candy).

    I thought I had more than this, but October ran away from me. 😦
    I did, however, go for a very long drive on country roads looking for the abandoned house, which is much creepier IRL. I remembered seeing it on my way to 1D so many months ago, and then went out in search of it again. After driving for twenty minutes through farmland, I was close to giving up, but then I saw it looming and creepy and a hollow shell, and I pulled over in the middle of corn fields to take a pic. It was literally the middle of a sunny day, and I was so scared.

    • Ooh, that is a VERY creepy house.

      • flanny says:

        I actually had gotten out of the car to take some pics, but they ended up not fully capturing the creepiness. So I was like, “I need to get closer.” So I got back in my car and drove the three extra feet AND REMAINED IN THE CAR ARE YOU KIDDING???

          I went to go look at Flanny’s abandoned house…and photobucket starts trying to sell me framed prints of it. NO THANK YOU PHOTOBUCKET!

        • My home town had an abandoned slaughterhouse that I went into once with my friend. There were still meat hooks hanging from the ceiling. I have never been so brave before or ever again, as I clung to my tall guy-friend, prepared to shove him into any murderers or ghosts.

        • flanny says:

          I know what other abandoned thing your hometown has, NABI. Oh I know. (It’s an insane asylum, guys.)

        • The slaughterhouse was at the bottom of the hill, about 100 yards from the asylum. By the time I was old enough the asylum was too hard to break into. Whomp whomp (not really, I would never have gone there).

  2. Okay, here’s the thing: some of these might not TECHNICALLY count. But I don’t have a ton, so I’m sure I’m not in the running for winner anyway. A couple notes: the lady in the PSL photo is not me, but a very very nice person who would appreciate your discretion with her drink choices! (also there’s no way to prove that it’s a PSL but I promise it is, because why else would I take that photo?) Also the cat is not TECHNICALLY all black, so if it doesn’t count, I understand, but I thought you would all appreciate a photo of him “helping” with my Reba costume.
    Also!!! There are some non-contest bonuses!!! There’s a vampire with a hat like Mystery! There’s a Frankenstein monster who works at Culvers (why not?). There is a photo of those garbage peanut butter things that come wrapped in waxy orange and black paper. Why, everyone? Why is this “candy”?? Also the Jason mask is on a tiny Darth Vader which, I’m not gonna say should count for extra points, but it’s still pretty great.
    Okay, here goes nothing:

    The great thing about this album is that you get to see how much a lot of things cost at Target! Also I kept meaning to take a picture of decorative gourds on the porch of this house I walk by every day but it’s really close to my train stop so there’s always people around and I get self-conscious about taking pictures of random houses in front of strangers. Also I kept meaning to take a picture of the empty building on my corner that has had “El Nuevo Taco Loco Opening Soon!” written on butcher paper in the windows for three years as my abandoned building but somehow failed even though it is literally a few yards from my building. Oh well!

    • I like the Mickey Mouse pumpkin juxtaposed with A SKELETON RISING FROM THE DEAD.

      • catweazle says:

        There was a house I didn’t get a picture of that had these really elaborate skeletons that were posed so that it looked like they were clawing their way out of the earth, like just the head and arms were sticking out of the ground. The same house had a pair of black flamingos with demonic red eyes. There are a ton of really intense Halloween decorators in my neighborhood!

    • Shoot! You made me realize that I have a copy of Twilight (won in a White Elephant gift exchange at a Half Christmas Party in June) that I forgot to take a picture of!!!

    Oh crap, I need to upload the rest of mine. I’m not going to put the black cat in the album, because well, it’s not for everyone. This cat is evil, and I am very much afraid of it. Hopefully I post this link in a way that the picture doesn’t just show up. Click at your own risk.


    I definitely forgot a few, but yay for hunts!

  6. Also! This was super fun and we should definitely do Month of Cheers with a Holiday Scavenger Hunt! I promise I will do better that month (somehow December is less busy for me than October, go figure!)

  7. nastyemu says:

    Ok, here is the album, without the gross evil cat. I can’t believe how many easy ones I forgot about. Also, where are all the crows? I made a real actual effort to find crows and couldn’t. We should definitely do something like this again.

  8. Also! There’s a weatherman who wore a green screen suit with a skeleton on it and it’s awesome!

  9. hotspur says:

    My work computer is made of spinning beachballs today, so I’m not sure how I’m gonna post my photos, but here’s one to start me off. Hopefully I’ll have a link to the rest soon!

    I had so so many, but I haven’t taken most of them off my phone yet and I dropped it in a sink full of water two minutes ago. Hanging out in some rice 😦

    This is my sister-in-law’s all-black cat who is the most neurotic feline I’ve ever met. I babysat him for a whole week once and I didn’t even see him until day 4. As soon as I would get home, he’d run away, usually into a top kitchen cabinet that he would open WITH HIS OWN PAW.
