Crystal Blue Persuasion - A Breaking Bad Tribute To Halloween

(YouTube Link)

Jesse Pinkman is cooking up a batch of the blue stuff for Halloween this year, only it's not meth- it's rock candy!

And that's not the Jesse Pinkman we know and love from the show, but rather the creator of this fun Breaking Bad themed short Casey Atchley. 

I wonder if any of the trick-or-treaters that hit Casey's house came back looking for a refund?

The Sweetest Graffiti Ever Slapped On A Wall

Montreal's sweetest street artist is Shelley Miller, who has been creating murals and graffiti pieces made entirely out of cake icing on walls all over town:

As a form of inscribing the shifting meanings and uses of urban space, Miller takes graffiti’s decorative dimensions to an extreme, adorning the visual landscape with the same technique that one would a cake complete with swirling piped borders and edible roses.

Miller has been working with sugar for more than 10 years in her site-specific practice, engaging with issues of spectacle, consumer culture, excess, waste as well as the historical links between sugar and slavery…

Her works look amazing, but they must attract ants like crazy!

Celebs Sporting Their Halloween Costumes

Every day is Halloween for most movie stars, because they're constantly dressing up for the show they're currently shooting.

So it makes sense that they'd cut loose come Halloween night, wearing costumes which are either extremely theatrical or just plain crazy, like this pic of Harrison Ford channeling his inner rock star. Happy Halloween Hollywood!

Awesome Banjo-Kazooie Costume

You gotta admire this guy's sense of style, his Banjo-Kazooie costume almost looks like something he would wear on days other than Halloween!

He gets bonus points for all the extra little touches he's included- his bird Kazooie in the backpack, the discovered Puzzle Piece and the shark tooth necklace all sell the fact that he's supposed to be Banjo the bear even though his face isn't very bear-like.

The Life And Death Of A Pumpkin

(YouTube Link)

Here's an oldie but goodie that chronicles the life cycle of a pumpkin, from the patch to the carving table, complete with horrifying sound effects.

Pumpkins have it pretty easy until Halloween rolls around, and then come Thanksgiving and their orange heads begin to roll for the sake of making pumpkin pies...

The Cutest Thor Cosplayer Ever

Cosplayers who choose to dress up like Thor generally look pretty tough, or at least their inflated muscle suit makes them look tough, but this little costumed hedgehog looks so adorable as the God of Thunder he makes us want to go squee!

How did they get this little guy to hold that itty bitty Mjolnir hammer? All he needs now is a helmet and a beard and he'll be ready to battle guinea pig Loki...

Big Cat Halloween Pumpkin Massacre

(YouTube Link)

It's that time of year again, time for the Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Florida to throw some unlucky pumpkins in with the big cats and watch that orange skin fly!

Big kitties are so playful, too bad most things don't survive the experience of playtime...

The Frankensteins Have Something To Discuss

When Doctor Frankenstein calls you into his office because he "wants to pick your brain" you'd better get all of your thinking out of the way or else you may lose your train of thought.

Heck, you might be losing your entire mind soon enough, hopefully you weren't too attached to that brain rattling around in your skull...

Not Your Usual Saved By The Bell Costumes

Remember that episode of Saved By The Bell where Jessie started taking diet pills so she could study all night long?

Well, the clever Halloweenies in this photo decided to base their costumes on that inspirational episode, but instead of dressing like Jessie and Zak Morris they're dressed like the diet pills and a phone with Zak on speed-dial.

They're gonna have a lot of explaining to do!

Video Game-O-Lanterns

This may be an accurate depiction of what jack-o-lanterns look like inside the virtual world of video games, but we're not really sure because no living person has ever survived the transition from flesh to pixels.

Gamers will get the jokes, non-gamers may not, but why not take a look at all the pretty little pictures anyhoo!

Red Sonja And The Wizard - Lost Footage From Comic Con 1978

(YouTube Link)

Lost footage from a San Diego Comic-Con show in 1978, starring co-creator of Elfquest Wendy Pini,  has been discovered thanks to a fan who was filming it all from the audience.

Here's the story behind this epic footage:

In the seventies, Red Sonja writer Frank Thorne and Wendy Pini used to perform a show, "Red Sonja and the Wizard," at comic conferences. No record of these legendary shows were thought to have survived, however—until this film, shot by an audience member at 1978's San Diego Comic Con, surfaced on YouTube.

Huzzah, my collection is now complete!

The Other Gangnam Style Costume

I'm sure lots of people will be dressing up as Korean superstar Psy for Halloween this year, but what about that other guy in the video?

Dressing up like that other guy would be a much more creative choice of costume, and if you team up with someone dressed like Psy you can make your own music video and get millions of hits when you upload it to YouTube!

Indie band The Boxing Lesson teamed up with animator/filmmaker Eric Power to create Better Daze, a colorful tale of monsters arriving in Austin, Texas and raising hell.

Eric's technique of using paper cut animation composited over live action footage is so unique that other animators are sure to be taking notes while they watch the story unfold.

Adorable Father/Daughter Back To The Future Costumes

Back to the Future is an unlikely place to find ideas for father and daughter costumes, unless you're talking about that awkward scene where Marty goes back in time and the younger version of his mother tries to smooch him, and that would be just plain wrong...

Now here's a father and daughter who are doing BTTF right, and that lucky dad even owns a pair of those spacy light up Nikes!

A Jack-O-Lantern And Booming System In One

(YouTube Link)

Cars drive by with the boomin' system...wait, that slammin' sound is coming from the jack-o-lantern on their front porch!

The audio installation wizards at Steve Meade designs wanted to see if they could install car stereos in pumpkins, and the result is a 500-watt explosion of sound loud enough to turn those pumpkins into pumpkin pie.

Here's the sick system this pumpkin is sportin':

"Soundigital amps, Rockford Fosgate speakers and powered by XS Power battery.  Not to mention the Kenwood deck and VU-Din"

My Martini Tastes Like A Wet Dog!

It's fun to incorporate your dog's cone collar into their Halloween costume, even though they may not see the humor in it I'm sure all the humans in your neighborhood will!

This dog-tini is neither shaken nor stirred, and don't even try to serve him with less than three olives or you might get a great big hole ripped in the back of your pants.

A Worldwide Celebration Of Halloween

Halloween is still largely considered to be an American holiday, but more and more countries are joining in on the spooky sweet fun each year, and it seems like Halloween may one day be a holiday that the entire world celebrates together!

France

Don’t you know that you don’t get a treat if you’re not wearing a costume? In France it’s no costume no problem, and even though they’re relatively new to the holiday, people are happy to give out treats to any trick-or-treaters who show up at their door.

Photo: Lupo Lupo/Flickr

Costumed kids and parents take to the streets of Paris, France in search of sweets. It has become a yearly tradition for families to go trick-or-treating around Paris on Halloween night, due in large part to the 1997 advertising push by American companies and France’s own Telecom to make Halloween an official holiday.

England

The Antrobus Soul-Cakers are a British mummers troupe (folk actors) who perform a souling play (a play about death and revival) each year at Halloween for the eager holiday crowds in Cheshire. This picture was taken in 1976, but the tradition is just as popular today as it was back then.

Fang-tastic Halloween decorations were strung across a busy street in Blackpool, England back in 1998, earning it the nickname Halloween Highway.

Parents and kids take to the streets of the Harajuku District in one of many parades that take place in honor of Halloween. You gotta love a parade, especially one full of people in crazy costumes!

Pumpkins Carving

Kurt CoBANE Is Back From The Dead And Seeking Revenge

Apparently the grandfather of grunge isn't dead, he's just been plotting a way to defeat Batman!

Kurt CoBANE has moved out of Seattle and in to Gotham City, and his voice change is an unfortunate side effect of all the drugs fed to him by his insane wife Courtney Love. Maybe that's why he's so angry at ol' Batsy...
