While some of Bridget Marquardt’s ex-castmates of the Girls Next Door are writing tell-all memoirs about their days in the Playboy mansion and getting into heated feuds, the former Playmate is busy focusing on her bright (and perhaps a little spooky?) future! Marquardt, ex-girlfriend of Hugh Hefner, got engaged to horror film director Nicholas Carpenter. And naturally, she went straight to social media to share the big news and show off her one-of-a-kind spider sparkler!

The former girlfriend of Hugh Hefner displayed her glitzy, spider-shaped ring on Instagram on Thursday with the caption, “Happy Oct. 1st!!! Oh…and… Did I mention @nicholascarpenter and I are engaged?” She posed with her fiancé showing off a fresh pink mani and season-appropriate Halloween signage that reads, “Till Death Do Us Part.”
Although the ring definitely falls outside the bounds of traditional diamonds, it’s actually right up the star’s alley. She’s obsessed with Halloween — one glance at her Instagram and you know she gears up for the fall holiday all year long! She posts about her Hollywood Ghost Tours, counting down the days until Halloween and of course promotes her Etsy collection of homemade costumes and accessories.
The couple began dating in early 2009 and moved in together shortly after. Marquardt told PEOPLE at the time of the move, “We found a style that we both liked that we improved on … There are like three personalities — the personality of the house, and then each of us. I’m more girly but I also wanted to pull off the vintage, Hollywood glamour slightly circus style.”
If the ring is any indication, we have a feeling the wedding could be a spook-tacular circus-style celebration. We want to know: what do you think of her unique ring? Share with us in the comments below.
