Most Expensive Halloween Decorations and Costumes
While most of the world is in search of affordable Halloween decorations, there are select groups that just want to go all out. If money to burn is what you have and Halloween is one of your favorite holidays, here are the world's most expensive Halloween decorations that might float your boat.
Bela Lugosi Dracula Actual Cape
Perhaps you are a Dracula fan? If so, the actual cape that was worn by actor Bela Lugosi is up for bid. Although not a traditional decoration, for the expected price of $2 million, the person that buys it may just want to put it on display!
Full Sized Knight of Armor Suit
Knights in shining armor are a hit this year and have made their way into Halloween decor. If a full sized knight of armor suit is something you'd like included in this year's decor, there is a genuine one up for sale on eBay for a cool $30,402. For the price you will get the knight, as well as a crossbow and battle axe.
True Ivory Skull
For a scarier touch some may want to invest in a true ivory skull. Skulls have been part of the Halloween tradition since the medieval times and right now the retail store Bonhams has one up for auction if you have $24,000 lying around and you don't know where to spend it.
Anything mechanical or inflatable is going to cost a good bit of money especially if it is made with high quality materials. Not only do decorators need to take into consideration the cost of these decorations, but also the inflation of their electric bills when they are kept running.
Such decorations include walking and talking mechanical zombies, witches, black cats and pumpkins and all of them range from $20.00 but are priced as high as a few hundred depending on the style, height and width.
Dobson the Butler Stand-Up Props
Dobson the Butler Stand-Up Props are a high ticket item this Halloween season and if ghoulish is what you are looking for you will find it here. You will also find a big price tag as this 6 foot tall, hard foam greeter will cost about $399.00. But this is a cool idea if you can swing it; the butler shivers, shakes and can turn at a 360 degree angle as it is powered by an outlet of 110 watts.
Life Sized Frankenstein
Animatronic puts out a life sized version of Frankenstein every year that stands at 70 inches tall and will scare the daylights out of guests or trick-or-treaters because it talks intermittently! The eyes will eerily scan the room and the head will turn when one least expects it. With a glowing neck and moving mouth, you can set this prop to be motion sensitive. It retails at $249.00.
Creepy Rocking Granny Animated Halloween Prop
What is creepier than a decrepit grandmother who looks like she played in the cult horror film Psycho? Probably few things and that is why this item should be added to your Halloween decor list. The Creepy Rocking Granny Animated Halloween Prop is a little over $300.00 but will bring life and scares to any party or property. Weighing over 24 pounds, this dead like grandmother will move and sway I her rocking chair, as she sits with her mouth agape as if in mid-scream with the creepiest looking eyes most have seen. Her long, stark white hair and matching gown is sure to remind some of their own grannies at home, which makes this decoration ever scarier.
For indoor gatherings or spooky parties the Skeleton Chandelier with Three Femur bones and Skulls priced at $319.95 weighs 45 pounds and includes on full skeleton, 3 full sized femur bones, and three life sized skulls which all intertwine with one another for a radical and super creepy Halloween item. The three skeletons are holding the skulls in a loving way and has a flickering candle in the center. It reaches 23 inches wide and 32 inches tall, so it is the perfect centerpiece even for larger rooms.
