This year I am thrilled to be hitting so many Halloween events ahead of autumn! I already checked out the 4th Annual Spook Show Halloween Festival at the Halloween Club in March (check out my recap of that event with photos HERE!), and there is July's Midsummer Scream and August's ScareLA Halloween festivals coming up as well! This past weekend was my first time checking out Abracadaver Productions' 6th Annual Open House and Halloween Market, located in Fullerton, California.
I appropriately checked out Zombee Donuts before heading to the event, because it just seemed right, ya know?! You can read about my donut experience HERE! After that, I headed to the Halloween market, which is located in an industrial/office complex. I got there right around 11AM, when they open, so there was plenty of parking in the lot there. The event is free, so I walked right in and started scoping out the booths. They have a wide variety of vendors, though the event is smaller than some of the others I've been to. I think it has grown every year, though, and there were a lot of quality vendors in attendance selling everything from eerie art to horrific hair accessories to creepy clothes to frightful furniture to terrifying toys to putrid props to spooky sculptures to gothic jewelry and beyond! Check out some of the photos I snapped of the event below:
I loved this jolly masqueraded jack-o-lantern sculpture that was at the
Appalling Apparel booth!
Pretty pyrography pieces by Girl Wonder Extraordinaire!
I love me some macabre masks!
Halloween Psycho had to-die-for furniture, including these coffin bookcases.
These pint glasses from Whichcraft are etched with some drop-dead awesome
designs, including characters from The Nightmare Before Christmas,
Halloween III: Season of the Witch, Disneyland's the Haunted Mansion,
Trick 'r Treat, and more!
So many cute coin purses, makeup bags, headbands, and Peter Pan collars!
Gore-geous artwork from artist Tanya Cyr of Ravenscroft Studios!
Lovely jewelry from Frightwares...I always pick up a little something from
her stunning collection!
More marvelous masks!
A-witching we will go. Stunning sculptures from The Shrum Shop!
Awesome t-shirt from the book Frank N' Goat by Jessica Watts!
Here is what I ended up picking up from the event - two boo-tiful frames from
Fabulous Frights, ghoulish glasses (there is one with the three Halloween
masks from Halloween III, one of Killer Klowns from Outer Space, and
another with Sam's lollipop from Trick 'r Treat) from Whichcraft, and
creepy chokers (coffin, Oct. 31 pumpkin, cat) from Frightwares!
The Abracadaver Productions' Halloween Market was a helluva good time, and the vibe there was very friendly and laid-back. Not only did they have awesome vendors, they also had a devilish DJ spinning goth tunes, plus FREE drinks and BBQ (I did not stay long enough to see if there were vegan options, though I doubt there were). Still, it just goes to show what a friendly vibe this Halloween market had going for it. I will definitely go back next year, and urge you to check it out as well!

Until next time, stay spooky!
