Texas woman gets flack for pole-dancing skeletons on Halloween

Texas woman gets flack for pole-dancing skeletons on Halloween

This woman doesn’t have any skeletons hiding in her closet — they’re all stripping on her front yard.

For Halloween this year, Richmond, Texas, resident Angela Nava created a skeleton strip club on her lawn. The lusty outdoor venue — which Nava has named “The Candy Shop” — features skeleton strippers pole-dancing in wigs, bony customers getting lap dances and offering tips, and even a skeletal bouncer wearing shades and a baseball hat emblazoned with the word “SECURITY.”

And the scene is far from dead: Nava changes it up daily and plays music for about an hour around 8 p.m., she told ABC 13

.

“[It’s] really been just a great creative outlet for me,” she said of her haunting hangout, which she dreamed up early in the coronavirus pandemic. “We’ve just decided if this brings a little bit of joy and a little bit of smiles to someone, then we’re doing everything right.”

It certainly seemed like the display was spreading joy, as her neighbors all loved it and it was a hit online. But then Nava received a letter from her homeowner’s association on Sunday. Her exotic dancers, the group said in so many words, were offensive and inappropriate for the family-friendly neighborhood, and Nava had 30 days to take them down, despite Halloween being this Saturday.

“I was a little sad,” she said of her reaction. She initially planned to comply and shut the scene down, “but then I got so much support off of Facebook and I said forget it.

“People are having so much fun with this and they love it, I’m gonna continue to do it,” she said.

The letter, Nava added, didn’t specify any repercussions for not complying, although she suspects she may be fined.
