There is nothing I love more than coming up with a completely unique & homemade costume for Halloween. I'm not really the slutty type...I mostly go for utterly ridiculous and stupid so that I can act like a fool all night long. Past costumes include: a troll doll, a "naked" Rose from Titanic (complete with nude body suit and fake heart of the ocean), an 80s workout chick, and a tacky tourist who drank cocktails out of a thermos all night. Most important part of a costume: props. Don't forget the little things, people.
But the other side of Halloween that I love are all the creepy crawley things (skulls, bugs, snakes, etc) which are shunned the rest of the year that are somehow suddenly acceptable in the month of October. I could wear my snake ring and fly earrings any other month and get weird looks from people, but as soon as it's October, I'm suddenly embraced by others who are in the holiday spirit. "OMG I love your earrings! You are SOOOOO festive!" No, lady, I just like bugs.
Soooooo for those of you who might not be dressing up for Halloween, but still want to get in the Halloween spirit, I've picked out 13 awesome creepy and crawley pieces that I love not just for Halloween, but for all year around.

Found these sculptures via the awesome blog The Jealous Curator.
I just love anything SUPER SIZED. Especially love how some of the sculptures aren't just placed in the grass or on the street corner, but are incorporated to current structures. Kudos to artist Liesbet Bussche,
