Pentagram has to be one of the most nightmarish creations on American Horror Story (even though she has some pretty tough competition to fend off). Can you think of anything much worse than a pair of hands wriggling their way out of your temples?
The Guardians of the Galaxy have to be the most fun superhero team to have at a Halloween party. They dance, they break the rules, and they definitely have the grooviest music. So the Guardians are a great bunch to pick from for your Halloween costume — or even for a themed group costume. Just imagine the badass vibe when you all walk into a venue together with Star-Lord blasting "Cherry Bomb" from a portable speaker. Here's a roundup of some of the best Guardians of the Galaxy costume guides...
The big night is less than a week away, so how do you not have a costume yet?! In my world, Halloween is the night of all nights. It's the only day of the year when it's socially acceptable to dress and walk around like an insane person, eat too much sugar, and scare the hell out of total strangers. What's not to love?
Whether or not The Purge franchise will be as successful as Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, or even the Saw movies remains to be seen, but it's definitely winning in the Halloween costumes department.
If you haven't come up with a funny, innovative costume yet for Halloween, you're running out of time. While all your friends are busy perfecting their month-long DIY costume project, you're still being lazy about it and have just now started to search online for ideas.
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...

Whether you've watched Game of Thrones or read the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin, you probably know the White Walkers (aka the Others) all too well.

I saw an amazing video with a great idea on how to create claws when you have longer nails. I want to go as a Vampire this year, but those claws that you buy look terrible on me, because my nails are long and you can see them under the fake claws. The video was in German, which kinda "spooked" me at first, but the girl added English subtitles (thank god). Here is the video and the instructions she gives:
If you don't have the time or patience to build a complete Ant-Man suit from scratch, there's another way to make a Ant-Man costume for Halloween. If you're more skilled with brushes and makeup rather than drills and cardboard, this is the Halloween DIY for you—especially if you're a fan of the Marvel universe.
Ant-Man isn't one of the most famous Marvel superheroes. In fact, with the news of his individual movie came great doubt that the comic book legends could succeed in telling the tiny story of an oddball hero on the big screen. Yet with its humor and unique story, Ant-Man has become a hit movie in its own right—and the hero will most certainly make a hit Halloween costume.
I found this cool idea how to get crazy nails for Halloween! The video is in German, but I still was able to follow it. Beside the technic she used, I also used a straw. They looked amazing in the end!

Halloween is a night to dress up as any character you'd like—but for women, that typically means wearing something skimpy or downright absurd. From "sexy" policewomen to nearly undressed fairy tale princesses, we're surrounded by costumes that leave little to the imagination. And, let's be honest: who wants to spend a chilly October night in barely-there clothing?
One of the best times to get creative during the year is Halloween, and if you're one of those people that like to make your own costumes and decorations, then here's a little something you can do for that scary night... A GHOST!!!
When I was young, I wanted nothing more but to be able to freeze things just like one of my favorite X-Men characters, Iceman. Now, Disney's most successful animated film to date, Frozen, brought another icy childhood favorite to the scene—The Snow Queen. And with Halloween right around the corner, all of the princesses out there can get their chance at being ice royalty. While Princess Anna and Olaf the Snowman were the biggest characters in Frozen, Elsa is one of the movie's most memorable ...
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.
Bearded women are typically more freaky than scary—yet when it comes to American Horror Story, nothing is as it seems.

Weeks before the music video for Nicki Minaj's Sir Mix-a-Lot-sampled single “Anaconda” dropped, an internet frenzy was sparked thanks to the help of an extremely racy cover image, several promo pictures with her "dancing" with label-mate Drake, and a teaser clip that showed Nicki twerking that hypnotizing booty.

Its popularity provided the ALS Association with $115 million in donations to date, with everyone from students to veterans to celebrities contributing.
Despite being the main character, Princess Anna from Walt Disney's animated film Frozen does not have the most visually recognizable outfit. That means that the streets will be crowded this Halloween with kids and adults dressed up as the more visually unique characters, like Elsa (the Snow Queen) with her ice gown and Olaf, the living snowman.
With a November 2013 release, Disney's Frozen just missed Halloween. That means that everyone had to wait an entire year to dress up as their favorite princess or snowman—and that time has finally come.

"Dead or alive, you're coming with me!" That iconic quote from the 1987 movie RoboCop was repeated by kids like me for years. The 2014 reboot introduced the baddest robot-cop on the planet to new audiences worldwide. While it didn't live up to the amazingly high expectations set by its predecessors, RoboCop 2014 did show off some newly upgraded gear. The modern look is cool and all, but rolling to a party rocking the 1987 helmet with the retro visor cannot be beat. With Halloween coming up, i...

Sometimes, when it comes to Halloween costumes, the easiest ones to make are the best. They require little effort, but can pack a punch and look even more authentic than complex character replications.
Animal masks are always a popular option for Halloween, not just because you can pair them with practically any outfit, but because they never go out of date. They've been a staple of Halloween costumes starting from the 1900's, but possibly even prior to that. George Takei, of Star Trek popularity, even left a hilarious comment on Accoutrements' Horse Head Mask Amazon page, making puns left and right about the animal mask—a testament to how trendy these faux mammalian skins really are.
Every year, some overly ambitious neighbor down the street amazes the crowds with his DIY illusion costume. While these costumes certainly require more work than pulling a mask over your head, they do have that wow factor that others lack.
Halloween night for most people with kids means tons of candy. That translates into tons of trash from candy wrappers.

This year, get creative instead of just tossing them away. Check out these eleven DIY projects and put your "trash" to good use.
Halloween is near, and if you don't have a costume yet, you better start looking because it's going to be a shit show. Instead of wading through heaps of sweaty costumers, making your own costume at home is so much better, especially when you can create something like this: This awesome sewn-mouth face, by young cosmetology student and Instructables user a_skeleton, is one of the most impressive examples of a mouth sewn shut that I've ever seen.
How To: The Candy Hunter's Guide to Scoring Bigger, Better, & Boatloads of Sweet Treats on Halloween
While most people were worried about having the scariest costume when I was younger, I was always more interested in the candy.
