Well hello there, boys & ghouls (that’s my first and last corny Crypt-Keeper pun, I swear!) It’s time to post the details of my annual Halloween-themed giveaway here at “Legally Redhead”. I know I usually start the giveaway earlier in the month,- but given how insanely busy these past couple of weeks have been- I thought I’d save the goods for when it actually got a little closer to Halloween.

This year’s giveaway includes four pictured items- but I have a few more tricks (and treats) up my sleeve for the lucky winner: including lots of candy of their choosing and a 3-month subscription to HORROR BLOCK– a monthly subscription box for, you guessed it- horror fans. All expenses, shipping & handling of the prize pack, and the Horror Block subscription will be paid for by me- all you have to do is enter!

Best of all? This giveaway is open to everyone outside the United States, as well (Horror Block delivers to the following countries: Australia, Canada, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom, and the United States. Should anyone outside those areas win this giveaway- I’ll be more than happy to find a comparable bonus for you.)

But before we get to the most important part: the rules/details- let’s see what’s inside, shall we?

There’s so many great and memorable locations in horror movies- the Amityville house, Bates Motel, Camp Crystal Lake- but my favorite is by far the Overlook Hotel from ‘The Shining’. Perhaps one of the most unsettling horror flicks of all time- I’m so excited to include this plastic replica key holder/keychain from the hotel (for room 237, of course.)

Use it to keep your keys in one place while simultaneously creeping out your friends!

Every year I always include a horror genre POP! Vinyl Figurine in my giveaway. Although there are just so many fantastic ones to choose from- this Regan (from ‘The Exorcist’) figurine had me both cringing and laughing when I first saw it. I’m pretty sure you can make the head on this thing spin all the way around- but the extra vomit on the inside of the packaging would make me want to leave it preserved in there, personally.

Even the scariest characters can look adorable once Funko gets their hands on them.

If you feel like you’re having déjà vu- don’t worry. A similar version of this “Nightmare on Elm Street” compilation was included in last Halloween’s giveaway, too. When determining which horror movie series/franchise people wanted to see incorporated in this year’s installment- a brief poll I posted on social media resulted in an overwhelming need for more Freddy Krueger. This 8-disc collection features all the movies- from start to finish.

Next year, I’m hoping there’s a “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” compilation I can include! The more Leatherface, the better!

And finally, I wanted to include a fun shirt in this year’s giveaway- and this Jason Voorhees deli tee was one of my favorites that I found. This shirt is made of soft cotton and is sized medium- but it does run a little bigger for those who like a looser fit or don’t mind shrinking it a bit in the dryer to accommodate their sizing needs.

Now, the part everyone has been waiting for- how exactly does this giveaway work?

Real quick, here’s a couple of ground rules:

The giveaway is running from now through 11:59 p.m. (EST) on Wednesday, October 26th, after which time a winner will be selected at random through Rafflecopter and contacted directly via e-mail to obtain additional information to process shipping. If selected, you’ll have 48 hours to respond to the confirmation e-mail. If I don’t receive a response in that time, I’ll unfortunately have to select another winner, instead!

Nothing in this giveaway can be traded or swapped for something else. What you see is what you’ll be receiving if you win!

2Spoopy: A Halloween Giveaway!

Comments 21 Standard

HalloweenGiveaway20151

It’s the most wonderful time of the yeeeeeaaaar! No, not Christmas (I don’t even want to think about that right now)– It’s almost Halloween, everyone- and it must be celebrated accordingly! Like last year, I wanted to put together a little giveaway for readers of Legally Redhead to get into the spooky- I mean “spoopy”- spirit!

Also like last year? This giveaway isn’t limited to just residents of the United States. Since I’ll be taking care of the postage and any applicable shipping fees myself- I wanted to include everyone! If you’re outside the U.S., don’t fret- I’ve got your back! All you have to do is enter and cross your fingers.

But before I get into how exactly to enter the drawing for this prize pack- I wanted to show what’s included, first:

HalloweenGiveaway20152

It’s no surprise to anyone that I’m an avid collector of FUNKO’s adorable POP! figurines (so much that I’m running out of places to display them!) but picking just one out of the numerous horror-themed collectibles they have available proved to be a bit difficult this time around. That’s why this year, instead of selecting just one to include in this giveaway- I’ve chosen a set of three mini-figurines for the lucky winner! This particular set includes Ghost Face from ‘Scream’, Chucky from ‘Child’s Play’, and Billy from the ‘Saw’ movies. You can leave them in the box they’ll arrive in, or display them around your space however you wish!

HalloweenGiveaway20153

A spoop-tacular All Hallows’ Eve isn’t quite complete without some horror movies by candlelight- and it’s just an added bonus if those candles happen to smell nice. Included in this year’s Halloween Giveaway is this medium sized ‘Trick or Treat’ Yankee Candle– which smells like a combination of their candy corn and buttercream fragrances (so it’s a sweet and rich combination!) 

HalloweenGiveaway20154

I wanted to pay homage to the late and great Wes Craven in this year’s giveaway, and I thought this ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ Collection Blu-Ray was the perfect way to do that. Featuring all 7 original ‘Nightmare’ films in one convenient package- this is the perfect series to binge watch on Halloween night with your friends (or alone, if you’re feeling brave.)

HalloweenGiveaway20155

Finally, for the relaxing bath-lovers in all of us, I included this “Heebie Jeebie!” Bat set from Lush. What’s inside this cute round ball with fangs, you might be asking? Well, this set contains a 2.0 ounce bottle of Lush’s ‘Lord of Misrule’ shower gel, and a 3.5 ounce tub of their ‘Nightwing’ shower jelly (I didn’t photograph the contents of the bat since I didn’t want to break the safety seal around the packaging- but they can be viewed on Lush’s website for anyone who is curious!)

I’ll also be adding a couple of other small surprises for the winner, too- including but not limited to plenty of candy!

Now, the most important part- how does this giveaway work?

Here’s a couple of ground rules:

Halloween Giveaway!

HalloweenGiveaway20141

I’ve been occasionally mentioning it in my past few posts, and the time is finally here to announce the details of my 2014 Halloween Giveaway! As most of you have probably figured out by now- October is my favorite month of the year- and Halloween is undoubtedly my favorite holiday. For that reason, I wanted to do something a little different this year and curate an assortment of items  to give away to one lucky Legally Redhead reader! And unlike other giveaways I’ve hosted here on the blog in the past: this giveaway isn’t limited to United States residents only. I’ll be paying for the shipping and handling myself- which means it’s open to those of you across the pond, below the border, and anywhere in between, too!

Before I get to the important part: how to enter- let’s take a closer look at what’s inside!

HalloweenGiveaway20142

As an avid collector of Funko figurines, included in this giveaway is a POP! Vinyl figure of one of my favorite horror movie villains- Freddy Krueger. From the detail on his burned and scarred face, to his infamous striped sweater- to the even more infamous metal clawed glove- this toy is too adorable to be afraid of. Put it up on a shelf, in a display case, or- if you dare- near your bed.

HalloweenGiveaway20143

To help get the winner into the Halloween spirit, I’ve also included the medium sized “Pumpkin Patch” candle from Yankee Candle in the giveaway. A mix of the “Harvest” and “Spiced Pumpkin” scents from the same company, this swirl candle will get your entire room/home/wherever you light it smelling like a delicious combination of sweet cinnamon and pumpkin pie- perfect for the season.

HalloweenGiveaway20144

I couldn’t possibly have a Halloween themed giveaway without including SOMETHING “Walking Dead” related, could I? To help the winner catch up just as we’re set to begin the fifth season (one week to go!) or even just provide them with something to gift to a TWD-enthusiast they may know, I included a new copy of the recently released fourth season of the show. This particular edition is Blu-Ray – Digital HD formatted and is loaded with special featurettes and deleted scenes that will keep you occupied for hours after you’ve binge-watched every single episode.

HalloweenGiveaway20145

Fable & Fury has been one of my favorite Etsy-based jewelry shops for a long time. Their pieces are well-made, unique, and guaranteed to garner attention. This stainless steel Nosferatu pendant is no exception. This would be a perfect accessory to wear on Halloween night to whatever frightening plans you have lined up- although I’m the type of person who would wear this year-round, too.

HalloweenGiveaway20146

On the surface, this brown bar from Fortune Cookie Soap– scented like berries and cinnamon- may look a little bland, but inside- it’s loaded with bugs. Not real ones, of course. From the “Nightmare Before Christmas” collection, this “Oogie Boogie” bar soap is made from natural ingredients and adds a bit of fun to any bath or shower as the soap begins to melt away with each use, revealing a bunch of creepy crawlers lurking on the inside, below the surface.

HalloweenGiveaway20147

HalloweenGiveaway20148

Lastly, most people my age can recall reading Alvin Schwartz’s “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark,” “More Scary Stories to Tell in The Dark,” and “Scary Stories 3 : More Tales to Chill Your Bones” in middle school around this time of year. Admittedly, the stories weren’t particularly terrifying, but when paired with the haunting illustrations by Stephen Gammell- the books became timeless. This hardcover compilation of the best works from the three novels is a nice shot of nostalgia to keep for yourself or to gift to a friend or loved one.

Not shown in the above photos, but will definitely be included in the giveaway- is the candy I plan to send the winner after contacting them (just to make sure he/she doesn’t have any allergies, of course!) and a personalized card once someone has been selected!

So now, some important stuff:

The giveaway is running from now through midnight (EST) on Sunday, October 19th, after which time a winner will be selected  at random through Rafflecopter and contacted directly to obtain additional information to process shipping. If selected, you’ll have 72 hours to respond to the confirmation e-mail. If I don’t receive a response in that time, I’ll unfortunately have to select another winner, instead!

Nothing in this giveaway can be traded or swapped for something else. What you see is what you’ll be receiving if you win!
