HOA orders removal of woman's strip club-inspired skeleton display

Oct. 28 (UPI) -- A Texas woman said her strip club-inspired Halloween display featuring seductively posed skeletons has raised the ire of her local homeowner's association.

Angela Nava of Richmond said she received a letter from her homeowner's association Sunday saying there had been complaints filed about her "inappropriate" and "offensively positioned" Halloween decorations.


"It's modeled after an adult club," she told KTRK-TV. "We just really had a good time changing the scene up every night. Every night, we change the positions of the skeletons, and it's really been just a great creative outlet for me."

The display features skeletons in colorful wigs pole dancing and striking other suggestive poses.

"We've all been cooped up and it's been just a terrible year," Nava said. "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."

Nava said she doesn't plan to fight the letter from the HOA, since it gives her 30 days from Sunday to remove the display -- well after Halloween.

"When I got the letter, I was a little sad," Nava said. "I thought, 'OK, I'm just going to take it down. I'm going to comply. I'm going to take it down and just not do this anymore.' 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 going to continue to do it.'"
