Am I the only person on the planet that really just doesn’t like Halloween? I used to enjoy it when I was younger, but now it’s just gotten too big of a mess for me to enjoy. Years ago, you could only buy things like fake spiders and skeletons, which were a nice spooky touch without being too scary. But now, you can buy displays that include bodies that are cut in half and hanging from the ceiling, making some sort of horrific intestinal chandelier. When my RL fiance and I went to our local Halloween shop last weekend, I was pretty freaked out by all of the terrible looking things you could buy. There were people with children in strollers shopping in there, and I couldn’t help but wonder if the half-eaten bodies were affecting them at all. There was even one display with half a body cut open, and a possum was stuck inside the lower half. You would press a button and the possum would begin moving, and the “victim”, which resembled some kind of zombie, would writhe and yelp in pain. I know Halloween is supposed to be scary, but in my opinion, Halloween specialty stores should have just stuck to the fake ghosts and goblins. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love a good horror movie, but for some reason, Halloween and I just aren’t on speaking terms this year. Maybe I’m just a Debbie Downer, but I feel like the super gruesome things should be made only for the movies in Hollywood, not for your front yard. After all, those movies are rated “R” for a reason.
Anyway, in the spirit of my Halloween boycott, I figured that I would waste no time skipping right over Halloween to Winter in order to show you these coats! I first saw them on Love’s post on the FabFree Blog, and I went to pick up a copy for myself, because this is an offer too good to pass up if you’re in need of a plush winter coat!
The free group gift coat comes in 4 colors, and I’m showing you 2 here. It comes in green, red, black, and white, and it is mesh w/an included alpha layer. This coat is super fluffy and warm, for those days when you need extra layers!
Have a happy Halloween, everyone, and stay safe!!
