Happy Halloween From Spook Up


The festive kids over at Speak Up have two features up to get you in the spirit of handing over precious Butterfinger bars to creepy-looking kids. First we’ll indulge in a tasty treat from Marian Bantjes who never fails to bring us a little historical perspective with our visual culture. “Bare Bones” excavates all those scary symbols from skeletons to witches, and reveals why zombies and vampires just don’t fit in with the rest of the freaks.

Then, don’t forget to chime in on Jimm Lasser’s rhetorical question “What is the Perfect Halloween Costume?” on this holiday where everyone employs a little design sense to construct the perfect, slutty costume.
