here is my list for the 2nd reaper. I may up date it so check back !

I am great with thrift store, handmade, garage sale items!
I collect witch dolls and figurines. Especially the Wicked Witch in all her forms! I have many wonderful ones from past reapers but am always happy to add to my collection!
I also started collecting ghost figurines and dolls of all kinds!

I recently started loving vintage and vintage reproduction pieces, especially from the late 50's and 60's when I was a kid.
I love crystals, geodes, gems, and stones. Either by them selves or in something.
Outdoors I am expanding my witches area. So any mask, wig, dress , cape, hat, would be great! And hands, I need witch hands! Any thing to add to a outdoor witch display, larger potion bottles, potion labels, lanterns. Any creature a witch might have!
I also have a spider area, so spiders, webs, etc.
I do a graveyard. Any creepy thing to add to that, .ghosts, skulls, ground breaker, etc. Maybe something to improve my lighting would be great!
I have some Halloween ornaments, but more are always welcome!
I would love a tarot deck!
Dislikes: zombie babies, gory, lots of blood

My list (with a little bit of venting 💀 ) And a couple changes from the list I sent to Bethene so I hope my reaper reads here

So my mom and I just went through an ordeal where someone broke into our house while we were staying for a while with a relative, what they thought was worth selling they took with them and everything else was very destroyed, including things precious to us that weren't worth anything to anyone else...apparently they were druggies and thought it would be fun to destroy things....and by destroy I mean it ended up that the county even condemned our home and will be tearing it down. Mom is the only one with income as I stay at home with her to help her because of her plethora of medical issues. We are currently staying with said relative so everything is as good as it can be under the circumstances. So anyway, that means we will have to start all over from scratch. That includes Halloween so, even though I am throwing in a couple themes, really I would appreciate anything and everything I can get, so I will leave a general list on likes too...hope I don't forget anything:
(P.S. sorry to dump my woes, I'm not really complaining, just explaining the situation. My mom is letting me join this so it would be nice if my reaper could send her a little something too....she loves Dachshunds, anything with the old style Volkswagen Beetles or Vans, Gummy Bears, and Crocheting)

If nothing else, my reaper can cast a look at my pinterest to see what all interests me Amy Martel (wikkidpunkin) - Profile | Pinterest I even have wish lists, and have been adding more recently

so, without further ado...

I'm kind of mixing themes between Rockabilly/Psychobilly and Vintage and or Vintage/Primitive inspired Halloween
art, accessories- hats, jewelry, bags, etc to go along with costumes. Cut outs, blow molds, masks, etc. Rockabilly/Psychobilly music..
I'm also looking for the country/rustic/farm-cabin Autumn things


so a general list of likes: in no particular order just putting down as I think of them

really like old fashioned style lanterns especially the clicker ones
Anything home/hand made
throw pillows/blankets
Plaid/Buffalo check especially in Halloween colors
Anything that says Hello, Pumpkin or Hello Darkness My Old Friend
love anything with iridescent
socks
hats
anything that glows in the dark or lights up
could use kitchen items like towels, oven mitts, serving containers/plate and utensils, baking or candy molds, mason jars to drink from..
magnets
Vintage, folk, primitive
Gnomes
wreath/swag or things to make my own
would like some planters/ "vases" that are made of or have the look of galvanized tin or bushel
Mason jars with Fall/Autumn or Halloween
I do like the ever growing popular truck whether it's fall themed or has spooky things on it
Pumpkins/Jack o Lanterns
Craft supplies including but certainly not limited to, wood things to be painted with fall or Halloween color palette, fabric pieces, big beads and charms to make jewelry, etc. I love stickers and patches fitting Halloween or Rockabilly/Psychobilly theme
Horror Movies from classics to modern (to name some of my favorites: Dracula, Phantom of the Opera, Freddy, Sam from Trick or Treat, Frankenstein, Jekyll and Hyde, Billy from Saw series...)
Tim Burton especially Nightmare before Christmas or things in Tim Burton style
Beetlejuice movie and toon
Ghostbusters movies and (Slimer and) The Real Ghostbusters toons (slimer was added to the title later)
Charlie Brown
Garfield
Legend of Sleepy Hollow (most versions)
I prefer the Munsters over the Addams Family but I like both
Are You Afraid of the Dark? Tv series
Hocus Pocus
Horror Books, especially about haunted places (true or fictional), or anything to do with the supernatural, cryptids
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (with the original art work)
Coloring books (nice way to be creative and relax)
scarecrows
crows/ravens
owls
wolves
gargoyles
strange and supernatural creatures
luminaries
could use some lanterns
string lights, Edison bulbs, or novelty lights shaped like Halloween things or Horror Characters
would love some vintage or vintage style bubble lights
Those cool light up with sound canvas pictures
Mugs
coffee/ tea/ hot cocoa/ cappuccino/ cider (I'm interested in trying pumpkin spice things too) note: nothing in K-cup or similar..will have to be instant or made in a common coffee pot
I don't mind some glitter but not "saturated" in it so that it gets everywhere
Clocks
Music like classic Halloween, Vintage Halloween songs, or Nox Arcana or anything similar to it
Celtic
Vikings
Fantasy
Just got into The Witcher series on Netflix though I would like to read the books
dragons
skeletons/skulls
Ram skull
Octopus/fish bones
Angler fish
gargoyles
snow/glitter globes especially that light up and or play music
ghosts and other supernatural things
Wiccan items
rocks/gems/crystals or the like
Plushies
Ancient cultures especially mythology and legends and cryptids (Egypt, Japan, Native American, etc.)
Coffin
Hearse
Tombstones and other cemetery things
would like to have an advent calendar
fairy tales especially Beauty and the Beast and Red Riding Hood
Wonderland
werewolves
swamp
voodoo
pirates
Halloween Buckets
Collectible or Art dolls
anything Garden especially dark and spooky goth or Halloween
Amigurumi
Candles (faux are best)
pictures of scary things or of Autumn scenes especially rainy days
Cyberpunk
Goth
Steampunk
miniatures, terrariums, dioramas, book nooks
scary games (do not have a way to play video games so handheld electronic ones are okay or board/card games)
curious/odd things
ornaments
aliens are okay
vampires
cryptids especially the Fresno Nightcrawlers, Jersey Devil, Mothman, Rougarou, Loch Ness

sorry that's a long list but I wanted to make sure there were enough ideas


okay now for dislikes:
While I love candy it might not be a good idea to get anything that melts easily
nothing on the dark side of Satan/Demons I'm NOT satanic however: spoofy, cute/kawaii, or like the old comics Hot Stuff, or Rockabilly style is okay
not too much gore...blood is okay, something shaped like anatomically correct hearts or things that have an eye on it is okay, a severed limb if it has purpose like art and not just a body part, but no guts that's just plain gross

I think I have it all covered, but I will add more later if I need to, so my reaper may want to read here 😏

Thanks for the fun and thanks ahead of time to whomever my reaper is! Whatever I get, I love it! Hehe...I'm easy to please...most of the time :LOL:

Dear future reaper, I will love whatever you send me.

I'm generally in to halloween, so anything in the spirit will make me very happy!
I would really like witchy items, divination, especially Tarot and tea leaf reading.. one of those teacups would be amazing!
I love crystals and Potion bottles, especially ones I can use all year long as kitchen storage. I enjoy cooking, so any halloween bakeware, measuring spoons etc would be great.

If my reaper is crafty and would like to make a sign, I would love something to display. Something along the lines of 'Roundwood haunt' .

I also love bones, wind chimes, voodoo vibe things such as a staff or gris gris bag, candles, cemetery items.

Not so in to the cute side of halloween, I prefer darker, spooky and mystical. I have enough spirit boards thanks to previous reapers, but any cool and unusual planchettes would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance

Here is my updated list!

Halloween Likes:

I love anything homemade! I could really use a gothic vase, and some dark gothic fake flowers for around my house! I’m moving from the ‘cute’ Halloween to more gothic as my
daughter is getting older and braver!

Also, This year, I am really into witchy things, especially if they have real preserved flowers, cauldrons, wooden spoons, potion bottles, etc. I would LOVE a poppet – especially one that was made out of natural things like corn husks or something similar. I could also use a besom/broom and a crystal ball. I also really love magnetic close books.

I love the Haunted Mansion, the Nightmare Before Christmas, and It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. I also would love primitive style décor- ghosts, really anything spooky/gothic (not gory) would be amazing.

This year I am planning to make a Halloween Town pumpkin scarecrow (if you don’t know what I am talking about, it was actually Jack in the beginning of the Nightmare Before Christmas movie or like the scarecrow in the beginning of Tim Burton’s version of Sleepy Hollow – some of my favorites!) so anything that would go well with that outside would be awesome. If you are super crafty and make haunt things, I could use a really big, long Santa hat to go on his head.

My daughter and I are really into steampunk this year! Also, lately I’ve been really into skeletons, flameless lights and anything that can help create a spooky vibe.

I could also use some small decor like fencing, lampposts, trees, to go with my NBC department 56 display!

I really need to update my outdoor décor as it has gotten old and a lot of it is broken or no longer working. I could use groundbreakers, ghosts, tombstones, string lights for trees, or big hairy spider are always welcome.

Finally, I have a 10-year-old daughter who is so excited to participate in this exchange with me. If you find anything you think a kid would like that is not girly/sparkly/pink/purple/unicorn (she is a self-proclaimed “tomboy” and loves spooky things like me), she would absolutely love to be included. She LOVES ghosts, toadstools, voodoo dolls, and keychains/bag clips for her backpack. You also couldn’t go wrong with anything Nintendo lol.

My Pinterest site: Holly Reeder (hugapi) - Profile | Pinterest

My Amazon wishlist: Check out my list on Amazon

I’ll be updating my Pinterest and Amazon sites regularly so always check back for other ideas!

Dislikes:

Zombie children, tons of glitter, intestines, body parts, blood/gore, clowns/carnival, plastic, candles that are not flameless, candy

I'm in! Here we go.....!

Likes:
*Pumpkins and jack-o'-lanterns. For either indoor/outdoor display. All shapes, sizes, colors welcomed.
*Blow molds. I still do not own a Halloween blowold!! I would love any, the classic pumpkins, black cats, ghosts are a fave.
*Skellies! I love me some skellies! They can be simple, they can be posed, serious, funny, gory .. Whatever! I love skellies!
*Skulls as well, love all skulls. Plain, corpsed, painted. Skull merchandise like towels, cups, plates etc.
*Candles (or lighters) with Halloween theme and scents.
*I am a wax-burnin' fool! So any fall/ Halloween wax cubes are always appreciated!
*Ouija themed items
*Witch themed items. Houseware, towels, costume accessories.
*YES I LOVE HANDMADE ITEMS! So if ya wanna get crafty, please make me something! Some of my favorite display pieces have come from members of this group!
*Let's talk gory! I LOVE it. I am one who runs the range from cute to crime scene when it comes to taste. I would be tickled to find a random bloody arm or leg in my package.. Maybe a bloody body parts garland to hang in my house? A severed head here, a bloody foot there...
*Can always use Halloween light strands, any colors.

Dislikes..
*Not a huge vampire fan.
*Don't need any DVDs or sound effects.
*Not too big on movie memorabilia. Yes, I love my Halloween and horror movies, but don't collect the merchandise!
*I do enjoy zombies, but for now I am set with my zombie stuff!

One quick add: I do have two kids who always loved it when a reaper would include something for them in my package. They are however, older now. But still big Halloween lovers! So, if you can think of anything a 14 year old boy (Mason) and 16 year old girl (Rylie) would like, I know they'd be excited. If not, it is totally ok!

I look forward to spoiling my Victim! A little about me, is my name is Autumn so I do and don't enjoy those seasonal Autumn signs. I love taking things apart and putting them back together. I collect sewing buttons, I only have a few Halloween ones: many Jack o' Lanterns I used on my mini yule tree and a Jack o' Lantern face I got both from Joann's so if you want to add to my collection those are what I got. Indoor and outdoor décor is welcome! In all honesty I am pretty easy to please but here are some guidelines to make me extra excited! This year I am probably going with just a haunted house theme with possessed dolls, webbing spiders, graves, and a few spooky figures in the yard. Despite my obsession with Halloween I don't have solid plans of what activities I am doing this year.

My Dad loves Zombies so zombie stuff os good. Same with clowns. And It's the great pumpkin. Halloween (Michael Myers).
Glitter, this being okay was definitely caused by my best friend.
I love food recipes, especially older ones that don't rely on my allergies, mainly corn(bad allergy), hazelnuts(deadly), and pumpkins(this is a mild allergy). (The list is kinda long coconut, cucumbers and clams too.)
Gore
Harry Potter is fine but like not that into and my sister buys me a ton of it already like not even my favorite wizard named Harry
No one else has allergies like I do of people I see often so if something food-wise is sent my way and I can't eat it. Someone else can.
Cute Halloween is easy to use with my best friend as she's a scaredy cat.
Voodoo

Booze. I don't drink it and very few friends drink it. Family doesn't drink it mostly. So no boozy recipes please.

    • I would love things to make a fence for the cemetery.
    • Nice tombstones would be awesome too.
    • Our new garage is on hold, so there it sits, falling over. I'm thinking of doing a nuclear fallout or something like that. Caution tape, police lights, etc.
  • I would love a sign to put in our yard that speaks of a haunted funeral home or bed and breakfast.

  • Something to hang on our back fence (thinking ghouls or specters I can put on springs or something like that.)

Dear reaper,

I guarantee I will love anything that you send. Thank you!

Likes:
Gothic Halloween Style (I like to keep the haunted and dark look in my house), the creepier the better.
Voodoo/wiccan items (tarot cards, spells, crystals, voodoo dolls, skulls, bones, crystal ball, etc)

LED/flameless candles

Black cloth/curtains to cover walls (I want to have every wall in my living area to be covered in black cloth/curtains)

I absolutely love any handmade items. The talent on this forum is beyond incredible. I have a "Voodoo alter" that has become bigger and bigger because of the Reaper and I love to see what gets added to it every year. It's become my Reaper shrine.

Items to decorate my front porch to look like a haunted forest/swamp. Here is a my Pinterest Link to get an idea of what look I am going for. https://pin.it/46qVaid

I also have a huge Halloween costume party every year. Anything to help with that (your favorite food/cocktail recipes, paper plates/napkins, etc).

Dislikes:
Satanic items
Clowns
Baby zombie babies
Cute, glitter
Gore
Aliens
