Jan. 16: A Look At A ‘halloween’ Fan’s Replica Myers House On John Carpenter’s Birthday

The Halloween and Halloween-crazed couple chose build an exact replica of the Myers house in their rural town of Hillsborough, N.C .” They modeled their home after the original home used in the film, which was built in 1888 in South Pasadena, Calif. Described as the boogeymans home away from home, the North Carolina version of the movie home was built to look as similar as possible to the home used in the film, with a few modern-day exceptions including more living space and interior alterations. The only things missing, the couple admits, are the 70s interior design aesthetic and the Midwest suburban neighborhood surrounding the home. The couples classic horror film replica home was finished in March of 2009 and is now called Myers House NC, complete with its own website and fan following.

The company, Morphsuits, priced this Halloween costume at around $1.6 million, making it one of the most expensive costumes ever. Gregor Lawson, founder of Morphsuits, said the release of their diamond-laden full body suit is not a move to garner publicity and attention. Instead, the idea to make this suit came from fans of the company, Lawson said. Lawson added there is only one diamond Morphsuit in existence and the company would be willing to create more if a demand surfaces.
