Well, Halloween is upon us yet again, and my favorite costume of the year has just dropped onto my desktop. What you’re looking at here is an awesome build of the power loader from Aliens, piloted not by Ripley, but by an actual baby.
Thank you Lord baby Jesus… (and god bless the pygmies.) Ricky Bobby’s tracksuit from the movie Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby is up for auction via a movie memorabilia company called ScreenUsed. The suit is an actual Sparco racing suit worn by professional racers, or in this case, Will Ferrell, when he played NASCAR racer Ricky Bobby.
With only a week to go, it’s getting to be too late to start building your own really complex costume for Halloween. But if you happen to have $9,000 kicking around, and happen to live in Phoenix, AZ, you might still be able to pull off the best costume of the year.
If you’re a fan of deadmau5, and have a massive budget for your Halloween costume, here’s something that’ll blow all your friends away. It’s a replica of the performer’s famous light-up stage head, and it can be yours for the low, low price of $2750 (USD).
Kids don’t want to be Luke Skywalker or Ben Kenobi or even handsome scoundrel Han Solo. Kids really want to be R2-D2. R2 is the man! Well, the ‘bot! Now you can turn your entire upper body into the Astromech droid with this excellent R2-D2 hoodie.
Halloween is almost here, and if you’re looking for ideas to make your kid the coolest kid in the neighborhood, you might want to check out what illustrator/animator Ward Jenkins did for his kid last year.
I agree with the old adage that dogs really are man’s best friend. Since best friends goof around together all the time, I don’t think your canine buddy would mind if you dressed him (or her) up in some funny rider costumes this Halloween, right?
Last year, NASA engineer Mark Rober shared his cool see-through iPad costume with us, but while it was one of the more clever geeky costumes I’d seen in a while, it wasn’t exactly cheap to pull off – you needed a pair of iPads to do it.
Admiral Ackbar is the only fishhead in the Rebel fleet who can smell a trap from miles away. That makes him one of the smartest characters in the Star Wars galaxy. Anyone would be proud to dress up as the Admiral on Halloween, but your costume won’t be as cool as this one.
What if the Predators attacked London in 1849? Well, tea time would have to wait, but also, the Predators might have worn cool Steampunk helmets like this one. Imagine how cool it would have been for one of them to take off this thing and show it’s hideous face underneath
How would you like to have your own animatronic T.Rex costume this Halloween? That would be awesome. Why would you ever take it off? This life-sized baby dinosaur would scare everyone in your neighborhood.
Halloween is still a month away, but I think it’s never too early to begin stocking up on ideas for awesome and unique costumes. At least this way, you can avoid dressing up as a slutty whatever if you don’t find anything good at the costume rental shop anymore.
