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!
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!
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.
Even though Hurricane Sandy has struck, the show still goes on for Jimmy Fallon, and last night he treated the Halloweenies of the world to all the awesome homemade costumes people sent in via #DIYHalloween on Instagram.
The clear winner of the group- The Shihtzuation from the Poopy Shore!
Do you dream of being a politician, but you're too broke to pay your way into office like the rest of the politicos? Don't worry, this list of last minute election themed costume ideas may help kickstart your political career.
You know what they say- dress for success and success will come to you. Although if you dress like Paul Ryan did in this silly photo shoot you may have better luck becoming a personal trainer than a politician...
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...
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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"
If you're looking for a last minute costume idea, and we mean last minute as in Halloween is hours away, for both you and your lover/bestie/sibling/comrade/soulmate then peruse this gallery of clever DIY Halloween costume ideas for couples which are easy and cheap to make. Uncostumed Halloween tragedy averted!
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!
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.
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.
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.
To a pumpkin, the worst part of carving is having to scoop out the brains! I wonder if human heads last any longer than pumpkins once they've been scraped clean and lit up from the inside with a candle?
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...
