How To: Blacken Out Your Teeth Using Eyeliner

If you don't have any black teeth wax on hand, the next best thing to blacking out one tooth in your mouth, or creating animal fangs, for a Halloween costume is eyeliner. Just make sure it's waterproof, non-toxic eyeliner, and you'll need to use Vaseline to seal it properly. Of course, you won't want to eat while this is applied, or it'll come off. It rubs off very easily when it's time to get rid of your black tooth/teeth.

How To: Make a Katy Perry "Roar" Costume for Halloween

There are two things I can definitively say about Katy Perry. One, she makes extremely terrible but catchy songs that I end up hating myself for singing in the car. Two, she single-handedly made Elmo the most popular Sesame Street character ever for males 13 and up (though, Kevin Clash ultimately made him the least popular shortly thereafter). Needless to say, Ms. Perry knows how to show off her assets. How can we forget California Gurls and whip cream breast cans?

Be Maleficent for Halloween: DIY Horns, Dress & Makeup for Cheap

Casting Angelina Jolie as Maleficent was a no-brainer on Disney's part. No one else could project beauty, elegance, and fear simultaneously just like the animated villain in Sleeping Beauty did. But what sets the character apart from other evil witches, or any other Disney character for that matter, is the sinister, yet gorgeous-looking horns and headdress. And with news that a Maleficent sequel is currently in the works, this will surely be a great Halloween costume this year.

How To: Make a Toga & Greek Goddess Dress

You've probably seen your fair share of sloppy, sloppy togas for Halloween over the years. You know what I mean — hems either pooled around the ankles or ending awkwardly above the knee, one hand trapped akimbo because it's too loose around the waist, a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. But the toga is still so tempting ... because it's so damn easy for procrastinators.

Emojis have transformed the way we laugh and cry, tell stories, give responses, and express excitement to get a drink after work — without any actual text required. Heck, in an incredibly meta move, the Oxford Dictionary even named the "Face with Tears of Joy" emoji as their word of the year at one point. So how could you not want to be an emoji character for Halloween? Emojis are everywhere. The ubiquitous symbols are already on smartphones, tablets, and social networks, so why not help them...

Quick Tip: Make Your Halloween Treats Glow in the Dark with Tonic Water

If you're throwing a party for Halloween or making homemade goodies for trick-or-treaters, there's no shortage of spooky foods and drinks you can cook up. But if you want to take it a step further, you can make anything glow under a black light by adding a little tonic water. Camber Wilson over on Recipe Snobs was asked to come up with a recipe for glow-in-the-dark cupcakes. After playing around with the frosting a bit, she found that tonic water made white frosting glow, but the effect was d...

How To: Recreate Snake Eater's Costume from Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

If you're a fan of the Metal Gear video game series, an obvious Halloween costume choice would be Solid Snake, the protagonist of nearly all of the games. However, an even better option would be Big Boss, aka John, Ishmael, Vic Boss, The Man Who Sold the World, and Naked Snake, among many other aliases. He's was once a good man, but better known as the nemesis to Solid Snake. The below costume by YouTube user Erick Zeros showcases Naked Snake in his good era, in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eate...
