Bleedin’ Bullets: Friday the 13th Edition

sat14th.jpgbat_bp.gifCaroline on Crack offers four ghoulish ways to celebrate Friday the 13th, while Elina at LAist promises 13 “Scaaaaary” things to do, but fell asleep mumbling something about Freddy before she got to five (wake up Elina! Besides…wrong movie!)

bat_bp.gifIf you’re looking to scream, Hollywood Gothtique and Alley Cat Scratch both have exhaustive lists of neighborhood haunts…

bat_bp.gifAccording to Helena Lazaro, the hot Halloween costume this year is the Crocodile Hunter (Steve Irwin) – dust off that old stingray suit for a great couples theme.

bat_bp.gifTo hear tales of Angelenos who’ve had horrifically bad luck join the Halloween Horrors Crime Bus, “a five hour guided luxury coach tour to the most grisly, weird, horrific and unintentionally hilarious crime scenes of old Los Angeles. This tour is not recommended for children, and we suggest you BYOBB (bring your own barf bag).” To lighten the mood, a stop at the infamous Scoops Gelato is on the route, and Crimebo the Crime Clown is rumored to be riding along. Some tickets are still available for Saturday, even more for Sunday.
