Normally, I’m a fan of seasons and don’t rush the holidays. For whatever reason, I’m ready for fall this year! Maybe it’s because it’s been really hot this summer or maybe it’s because I’m getting older and don’t like the heat as much as a kid did when I was younger. No matter what, I’m ready to be scared now! If you love Halloween, there’s now a 6-foot-tall rock skeleton you need to get your garden totally rocking this year.

I have already purchased some Halloween items as I plan to turn the Christmas tree in my room into a Halloween tree in early September. I filled it in the summer with all kinds of flower decorations, plastic flowers, paper flowers and butterflies. It’s beautiful, but I’m ready for a change. Earlier this week, I bought a series of old Halloween masks to put on the tree. I only bought one because I want to see what it looks like before buying more. The masks are the ones we used to wear in the 70s and 80s. I’m thinking about making my Halloween tree theme vintage this year.

Since I live in an apartment, I don’t have room for huge Halloween decorations. If you do, Cousteau’s 6-foot animatronic skeleton is a must-see! According to PopSugar, the skeleton has a red mohawk, red eyes that light up, and a killer electric guitar. The motion sensor-activated skeleton plays music, sings and speaks and is multilingual and has a British accent. How wonderful! If you get this, you should give the skeleton a rock star name like Sid Vicious.

Not only is the skeleton talking, he’s also making bad puns like: “Is it me, or does the crowd look a little dead tonight?” Ha! For a cool Halloween skeleton like this, you would think it would be very expensive. However, the punk rocker is only $160. This is not bad at all! This skeleton can be used indoors or outdoors via the power cord, and comes with a timer.

As I write this, I’m looking around my apartment to see if I can put this thing inside. And I can! I have high ceilings in my apartment, so “sid” would be appropriate. I’m sure my dogs would freak out if I put this thing in the house. My balcony is long enough and tall enough for the skeleton, so maybe I can put it outside.

If I’m interested in getting this for Halloween, I would buy it sooner rather than later. I’m sure it will sell quickly. Check out the skeleton below. I love him!
