When you think of Halloween, it typically conjures up images of dark and scary places. Trick-or-treating is generally a nighttime activity except for maybe the tots. One thing that I don’t associate with Halloween is sunrise and breakfast time.
Halloween isn’t even here yet, and I’m already starting to see Christmas products show up in stores. I think if you’re going to start buying Christmas items in October, I think you should be able to get some use out of them sooner than the end of November.
Between the endless candy, the artful pumpkin carving, the creepy music, the decorations, and the costumes, Halloween is the best of the holidays. There’s just so much more creativity in Halloween than most other holidays, especially when it comes to the costumes.
Halloween isn’t far off, so it doesn’t hurt to start shopping now before all of the good stuff is sold out. While your kids might already have ideas for costumes, I bet their trick or treat pumpkins aren’t being given the slightest thought.
This Star Destroyer bicycle might just be the coolest Star Wars costume ever, especially if you have a kid that has Imperial leanings. Andrew Guy built this amazing costume for Halloween for his son Aidan. Hey, Andrew, I want one too!
Mike Warren wanted to dress up as Ghost Rider for Halloween this year. Now, he could have just worn a cheap mask and leather jacket, but he wanted to go the extra mile with a wearable glowing skull helmet surrounded in a cloud of smoke.
The engineers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Labs have a pumpkin carving contest each year, and the pumpkins the creative ideas these rocket scientists come up with run the gamut from pop culture to space themed. My favorite design this year is the E.T.
If you are looking for a Halloween scare of the audio variety, check this out. You only have a day until the big holiday, so turn off the lights, turn up your volume, and put Paweł Zadrożniak’s latest work on loop.
If you want to make your fires look badass, there’s only one way to do it. Throw in a demon skull or two. You can toss them in your fire right next to those human skull logs that the same company was selling a while back.
Halloween is nearly upon us, and it’s time to get your last minute costume ideas figured out, stat. If you’re looking for a simple costume that you’re not likely to see others wearing, consider going as a slice of pizza.
Did you love watching Rugrats back in the ’90s? The series was one of those great Nickelodeon cartoons that proved that animation wasn’t just for kids, and packed the show with humor that adults could enjoy too.
We’ve seen our share of amazing jack-o’-lanterns over the years, but you know who makes the best pumpkins? NASA. Makes sense. If you can put a man on the moon and explore outer space, cool pumpkins should be no big deal.
I’ll be the first to admit that I can’t even walk into Walmart and cobble together a Halloween costume for my kids. Not Renz2LK so much. This guy made his son one of the coolest Halloween costumes of the year.
Halloween is a holiday that any adults and children of all ages can get behind. I love to see the custom costumes that people whip up each year, and the coolest kid’s costume I’ve ever seen is right here.
Not too long ago, I stopped by a farmer’s market. The variety of pumpkins they had was astounding. I didn’t see any green pumpkins though, and I really need one if I’m going to carve myself a Creeper pumpkin.
They have this really cool go kart race track near my house, and I think it would be the perfect thing to buy this lounger and then go racing there. You could also use this Yoshi Lounger as a super simple Halloween costume.
