If you don't want to dress up as a vampire, witch, werewolf, or zombie again this Halloween, step things up a notch and go viral. There have been a ton of funny memes and absurd news since last October, so the only hard part is settling on the right one for inspiration for your costume.
Spiders are my least favorite thing in the world. My second least favorite thing are cheap umbrellas. So, it's only fitting that the two work perfectly together as a creepy Halloween prop. In my video below, you'll see how to make a Spiderbrella, which is just the inside metal skeleton from the umbrella (which looks like a crawling spider), the umbrella's original black fabric, a couple Styrofoam balls, and some floral wire.
Give your ghoulish guests on Halloween a realistic spooky display of a head speaking inside a magic crystal ball. To make this even creepier, the talking head is the ghostly Madame Leota from Walt Disney's Haunted Mansion. To recreate this Halloween decor, you'll need a flatscreen TV, glass bowl, DVD player, a DVD of Leota's incantation, fake snakes, and some fabric.
Your scary thoughts create negative feelings just like a witch offering a poison apple, and your front door will look so tempting with this poisoned Halloween wreath! Check out my video below for how to make this forbidden fruit Halloween wreath. You'll need a wreath, a witch hand (or any old hand and green spray paint), poisoned app (foam shape and red spray paint), and baby green fake apples.
Used Venetian Statue Costume, stone-spray painted wings, and lots of make up & silver hair spray to complete the look for my Doctor Who Weeping Angel Costume!
The pumpkin is everyone's favorite cucurbit come Halloween time, and while there are only a few types of Halloween-friendly pumpkins out there, there is definitely no shortage of what you can do with them.
Every year, Halloween seems to get a little less scary and a little more slutty. But hey, I'm not complaining. Neither are the other 3.5 billion males on the planet. Only it does get a little boring when you see the same ol' sexy costumes over and over again. So, it's nice to see a girl get creative if she wants to go that route. However, they can go a little overboard sometimes, where sexy just turns into creepy.
I don't know what I've been doing in the past when it comes to carving pumpkins, but usually they last a little while. For some reason, the pumpkins we carved this year lasted only two days before they became almost completely engulfed in mold and pumpkin juice. Maybe our apartment isn't suitable for carved pumpkins. I was hoping they'd last until Halloween, but I got to say these pumpkins are way creepier once nature took its course. You may not see it just yet, but you can see the mold real...
It's already Halloween and the night is fast approaching. You swore to yourself last year that you wouldn't wait until the last minute again for a Halloween costume, yet here you are on Samhain without a costume… again. All of the costume shops are sure to be crammed with last-minute shoppers, and you don't feel like spending a lot of dough anyway, so what are your options?
Being a male, I may be the only one among my gender stating this, but I'm sick of girls using Halloween as an excuse to dress scantily. Why can't more girls skip the playboy bunny costume and get this gnarly? Below, ten badass Halloween looks executed by girls only...
This is quite possibly the most disturbing Halloween costume ever. Seriously. It nailed creepy down to a tee. A friend of Redditor YouHadMeAtBacon did this gory unzipped zipper face makeup, and it's by far the best I've ever seen. Unzipped Zipperfaces in Action
Stay off the streets, lock your doors and grab your shotguns, because zombies are infecting the world over. Well… this Halloween season anyway. With the return of The Walking Dead to AMC a couple weeks ago and the subsequent renewal of a third season, it just goes to show that the undead cannot be killed.
TANK DOG!!! Most hilarious costume I've seen this year. YouTube user darkbluedrew won first place at their local Petsmart's Howl-o-ween costume contest. Complete with a real enough weapon...
Internet famous pumpkin carver Ray Villafane recently nabbed the world record for carving the world's largest pumpkin. Inhabitat attended the carving event, held at the New York Botanical Garden, and captured some great photos. The pumpkin weighs in at 1818.5 pounds!
There’s nothing like a great horror movie to really get the adrenaline pumping during the Halloween season. I don't know about you, but the sight of blood dripping into a pool of even more blood creeps me out, so you can imagine my reaction to harrowing creatures that go bump in the night and rip people's faces off. It's intense, but I love it.
Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and Sleeping Beauty are some of the most horrific fairy tales ever written, but over the course of nearly 200 years they've become watered down and sugar coated for innocent children everywhere. The original tales by the Brothers Grimm are virtually opposites of how we know them today, because they were never really intended for unsullied youngsters. The folk tales came from storytellers across the German countryside, recounting the terrors they've heard ove...
You've met the anal retentive pencil sculptor. Now, meet the anal retentive pumpkin sculptor. Ray Villafane is very talented, obsessively dedicated and as you'll see in the video below, appears to be quite neurotic (in a great way). If you're knocked out by what you see, Ray has generously shared a pumpkin sculpting tutorial for taking a stab at it (no pun intended). Previously, Anal-Retentive Miniscule Pencil Tip Carvings.
The subject at hand takes the prize for the best girl costume of 2009. Classy, pretty, and comic book related. Check out this Roy Lichtenstein-esque makeup job. Amazing.
