The Most Terrifying Garfield Comic Ever Published

Garfield is known for eating whole trays of lasagna and punking family dog Odie, not being a cold blooded killer.

But once upon a time, in a collection called Garfield: His 9 Lives, we were presented with an alternate reality version of Garfield that was possessed of a primal spirit and had blood red dreams. The comic still manages to be PG, but just barely...

A Pumpkin Shaped TARDIS-O-Lantern

A Doctor Who fan was inspired to create this TARDIS themed jack-o-lantern for Halloween, and they were relieved to find that when it came time to scoop out the seeds and guts it was NOT bigger on the inside!

All this TARDIS pumpkin is missing is a little bitty Doctor peeking out of the door to see what century he's just landed in.

How Ghostwatch Haunted Psychiatry

Ghostwatch was a program created by the BBC in 1992 that supposedly showed a live broadcast from a haunted house, but the whole thing turned out to be a fake.

However, the fact that Ghostwatch delivered the scares in a documentary format, going so far as to claim that a poltergeist had possessed a member of the cast, caused a lot of mental trauma to the viewers.

Guess we know why there are so many disclaimers before TV shows nowadays- people will believe anything!

The best Skeksis costume we've ever seen inspired the greatest Dark Crystal inspired prank ever- YouTuber Augsburgdie1530 asked his buddy to get him something out of the closet, and the guy found himself face-to-face with a real life Skeksis which scared him half to death.

Costume Inspiration From The World Of Art

Show the world you truly appreciate fine art by dressing up like- this guy?! Okay, dressing up like Louis XIV may be a bit much, but the concept is sound- find one of your favorite pieces of art and create a Halloween costume based on it.

Whether you just use the color palette and textures found in the painting, or you actually dress up like the subject, art can be a great source of inspiration, and will help you avoid showing up at the party wearing the same costume as someone else.

Maleficent In Real Life

The woman in the picture is as close to the real Maleficent as you can get- it's Eleanor Audley, the woman who provided the voice for both Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty and the evil Stepmother in Cinderella.

She enjoyed dressing up in costume when not in the recording studio, and often acted out the roles so Disney animators could study her facial expressions and movements.

The Hardware Store With A Zombie Section

(YouTube Link)

The undead have it rough these days, and many stores have taken to selling tools and weapons meant to aid in the killing of the undead.

So where's a zombie to go when they have a DIY project they need to finish before their arms fall off? That's where Westlake Ace Hardware in Lenexa, Kansas comes in- they're the first officially zombie friendly hardware store in the U.S. of A.

They're still happy to help out the living too, so if you can stand the smell of rotting corpses stop on by and say hi!

The Evolution Of Girls Halloween Costumes

Here's a post which should be subtitled Sad But True- girl's Halloween costumes go from cute and innocent to skanky/sexy as they get older, and it's a crying shame.

Maybe it's pressure from their peers, or marketing groups which target women and make them feel like sexy is the only way to go on Halloween, but the truth is you have a choice and a voice so use them!

If you want to dress sexy that's fine, just don't forget that those skimpy little costumes aren't your only available choices...

Christopher Lee Reads The Original Nightmare Before Christmas Poem

(YouTube Link)

Christopher Lee is probably best known as Count Dracula from the Hammer studio horror films, or more recently as Saruman from the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, but regardless of the role he's most known for, one thing's for certain- he has an amazing voice.

Sit back and enjoy his reading of the classic Tim Burton poem that inspired the movie Nightmare Before Christmas, it's better than the movie...okay, not really, but it's still darn good!

The Amazing Optimus Prime Costume Ever

(YouTube Link)

Okay, I think the title says it all on this one- this is the most amazing Optimus Prime costume ever, and the only thing it's missing is the ability to transform into a truck.

The video is only about twelve seconds long, but that's all you really need to get the point. Either this guy has some serious crafting skills or he has a friend in Hollywood, either way nicely done!
