15 Fun And Cool Ideas To Decorate Your Halloween Pumpkins

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Every year I think about decorating Halloween pumpkins and every year I avoid it because of the smell of the insides while carving. Or maybe it’s touching the smooshy guts. I’m not sure, but at this point in my life, I would rather find other ways to decorate a pumpkin besides carving.

If you are like me, or even if you just want something you can keep year after year, you’ll love these 20 ideas. Some of them use faux pumpkins, and others use real pumpkins (but you can recreate these on faux pumpkins too!). They range from painting to glue to nailheads . . . and all of them are awesome.

1. Carve yourself some Scrabble tiles you can really get pumped about.

After you’ve cleaned your pumpkin out, you can carve up to three sides of your pumpkin based on your favorite or random Scrabble tile. Then used some LED candles to really light up your game this Halloween.

2. All your porch needs this year is a pair of starry night pumpkin pillars.

You can clear the guts outs of your pumpkins and then paint on a spooky dark tree. Make sure it’s super creepy. Then drill a bunch of stars and cut out a crescent moon. Then, all you need is a light to give your pillars that ethereal look.

3. Sunflower pumpkins are totally leaving Jack O’ Lanterns in the wind this holiday season.

Scoop out the pulp and seeds, trace the template of a sunflower and carve out the leaves and petals. You can also add different color twine or carve farm animals to give it that country living feel.

4. Prove to your neighbors that your Jack O’ Lantern has the biggest mouth in the hood.

Choose a large pumpkin to hollow and carve out. Just make sure that the eyes and nose are way up top and then carve out the big section, which will be its mouth. You can attach some black macrame strings to a metal ring, which will create a nice sling for Jack to sit on.

5. Use your pumpkin to create a diorama that you can really howl over this Halloween.

Carve the inside out and make a lycan diorama with twigs for trees and rocks and shrubs that you can get from your backyard. You can also carve the crescent moon in the distance. Then, you just need a toy wolf to turn your pumpkin into a real Teen Wolf.

Students Dress In Hilarious Costumes For Senior Student IDs The Results Are Hilarious

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

High School IDs have more restrictions than a driver’s license or a passport photo. But one high school is being a bit more flexible with their seniors and allowing them to dress up however they want. Some of the ID photos range from Harry Potter characters to movie stars, and even political figures like President Trump. But the ID photos aren’t just staying on these student IDs. The pics that have a number of pop culture reference and have gone viral on Twitter. We’re pretty sure this will set off a trend, at least if seniors can convince their schools across America to do the same.

At North Farmington High in Michigan, seniors are looking truly outrageous.

It’s back to school for Jem. But hey! Isn’t Jem’s real name supposed to be Jerrica Benton? Who’s this Adrianah? Kidding aside, she looks absolutely fabulous as Jem!

Kevin! What did you do? Oh wait! It’s just Matthew Swarthout!

Guess it’s better to put on a shocked face than to have a shocked look on your face when you take a photo that doesn’t look exactly how you pictured it.

Whoa! Zayn Malik! Is that really you in that photo?

Okay, so it’s not, but he’s certainly a spitting image of the British singer and songwriter. Fortunately, he’s not 24 years old like the real Zayn or we’d be worried for his future.

Is it just us or are these North Farmington High seniors ready for “The Office”?

Looks like these two have been spending way too much time in the school’s office, but hopefully so they could work during their free period and not because they spent in the principal’s office.

Oh Urkel! The only thing missing here is your beloved Laura!

It seems like these kids have a wicked sense of humor, and also love to bring classic characters back, like Urkel from “Family Matters” to ensure we never forget.

Bride Surprises Grandmother with Wedding Dress She Wore in 1962 And Her Reaction Is Too Cute

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

it’s tough to find a woman who hasn’t fantasized about her wedding day since her mommy read to her the story of Cinderella or any other fairy tale fantasy where the main character gets her happy ending. So, by the time they hit puberty, some women are already at the planning stages of their wedding. Now, weddings aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but getting treated like royalty for one whole day sounds like a dream come true, right? But making your family happy is pretty important too. Just ask one bride who left her grandmother speechless when she surprised her with an incredibly beautiful gesture.


Kortney Peterson

Tradition says you wear something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.

Jordyn Cleverly was getting married on September 23rd, and she wanted to buy the perfect wedding dress, but after trying on 30 gowns, she felt completely bummed and unsatisfied. It seemed like no dress would do, but she needed to wear something when she walked down the aisle to wed her future hubby, Dakota Cleverly. So, she came up with the perfect solution to find the right wedding dress. All she needed was to borrow something old from her grams.


Kortney Peterson

Now you could say that Jordyn is an old soul and wanted her wedding dress to reflect that.

Unfortunately, the bride-to-be from Boise, Idaho hadn’t found one that satiated her Victorian-style vision. Then, she remembered that her grandmother from her father’s side had the perfect wedding dress solution for her. With the help of seamstress Candy Harris, the dress was altered to fit Jordyn. Then, two nights before the wedding, Jordyn’s dad gave her grams a Polaroid photo of her own wedding. But when she turned around, she saw that dress again 55 years later, on her granddaughter.


Kortney Peterson

Jordyn’s 74-year-old grandmother, Penny Jensen, had worn the same elegant wedding dress in 1962.

The dress was perfect because it was both old, borrowed, and oh, so elegant. During her “first look” photos, Jordyn had surprised Penny by showing up wearing her old dress. Although her grandfather died at 49 from sarcoidosis long before Jordyn got to meet him, she had heard plenty of stories about him from her grams, Penny. She also had photos of Grams in the dress. So, when she walked up to her it felt like Penny was looking at herself.

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

What were homecoming pep rallies like at your high school? Perhaps nothing like this.

A dance team at Walden Grove High School in Sahuarita, Arizona, treated classmates to an ingenious dance interpretation of “The Wizard of Oz.”

Then it got posted on YouTube. And the attention has been “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

Watch the pep rally performance here:

The video has been viewed more than 1 million times since it was posted on Sept. 29.

The team’s mash-up of contemporary songs and movie soundbites hits most of the film’s major story beats.

The Scarecrow dances to “Insane in the Brain” by Cypress Hill; the Tin Man pops and locks while “I Can Make Ya” by Fingazz plays; the Cowardly Lion gains his confidence dancing to “Roar” by Katy Perry; and the Wicked Witch is defeated during Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood.”

Since the video was posted on Sept. 29, it’s garnered over 1 million views—and for good reason.

Previous videos posted by the team also hit it big. The team’s “Pixar” and “Alice in Wonderland” performances have amassed about 1.6 million and 267,000 views, respectively.

In all, the dance group has more than 2.7 million views on YouTube.

You have the dance team known as ThePAC to thank for this incredible rendition of “Wizard of Oz.” And this isn’t the first time the squad has absolutely wowed with their dancing abilities…

Inside The World Of A Halloween Sound-Effects Artist

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

A CHAIN RATTLES AND THE wind blows. A skeleton’s bones clatter and a woman shrieks. A wolf growls and a ghost whispers in the darkness.

Halloween, amirite?


scarysounds.blogspot.com

The Halloween sound effects album is a staple of the holiday, almost as inextricably linked to it as trick-or-treating. Each year people buy Halloween sound effects albums with a reliable seasonal fervor usually surpassed only by the sales of Christmas music.

But where do all these spooky sounds come from? Who is out there torturing screaming victims and creating ominous soundscapes? Polite English musicians, for one.

“Halloween sounds are timeless, I think. An old Disney Halloween album is still as popular as ever, and although the market has been saturated in recent years, the sounds themselves do not go out of fashion as far as I can tell,” says Leigh Haggerwood, a professional media composer and musician who has created six Halloween albums himself, as well as a number of others under contract for third parties. “The most popular album I’ve produced to date is Halloween Horror–Scary Sounds and Music. It sold over 50,000 copies in one week back in 2009 and was higher than Thriller in the iTunes chart at one point,” he says.

The history of modern sound effects can be traced back to the live radio plays of the 1920s. Live sound-effect creators would stand in the studio breaking light bulbs, clapping wooden boards together, and shaking panes of sheet metal to recreate the sounds of, say, breaking windows, slamming doors, and growling thunder. A 1931 annual produced by the BBC defined sound effects broadly as “everything that comes out of a loud-speaker, except what is usually classed as ‘Music’ or ‘Speech.’” Within that wide definition, the art of sound-effect creation and the foley arts (for movies) began to evolve. That same year, America got its first full-time sound effects department, at CBS, which is credited as having been a driving force in the development of the industry as a whole.
