The pint-sized reality TV star (real name: Alana Thompson) embraced the Halloween spirit early this year, working with Mama June to ready their McIntyre, Georgia, home for the ghoulish holiday.
The 8-year-old "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" star was sighted last weekend decorating her family property. In between playing with her Hula Hoop in the front yard, the barefoot schoolgirl hung lights adorned with spooky spiders. That was just part of the festive display, which also included cobwebs, jack-o'-lanterns, skeletons, ghosts, a giant black cat, and — caution! — crime scene tape.
The family added a little inside joke to the display by hanging two "Boo" signs on the front exterior of the white house.
Honey Boo Boo loves her Halloween — a fact we learned earlier this year when TLC aired a special episode on how the family spends the holiday. The clan was shown going all out with devilish decorations, making up their costumes (Mama June even dyed her hair!), and a trip to a local corn maze. They also told ghost stories (including an apparent family classic about the "Fart Ghost") and complained about their trick-or-treat loot (someone dared to give her dental floss!).
This year's festivities may well end up on the show's third season, which premieres on January 1.
It remains to be seen whether Honey Boo Boo will once again inspire Halloween costumes this year. In 2012, Miranda Lambert and Paris Hilton both dressed as the reality star — with the country singer proving to be a real ringer! This year, the network is selling a "Little Miss Sassified" sash for those hoping to adopt an authentic Honey Boo Boo look.
And there is no word on what Little Miss Sassified herself will dress up as this year, but it doesn't really matter. As she said earlier this year, "Halloween is all about treats … treating myself to candy."
We hope she gets a good haul.
