One dog is able to do the work of two little dog-faced men while wearing this clever costume, and they're carrying a present for some lucky human so the whole thing is one great big win.
Too bad you can't really train two dogs to cooperate like this, or they'd make the cutest little package delivery service!
ParaNorman is the latest stop-motion animated feature by Laika studios, and they take a lot of pride in how much of each production is handmade, from the sets to the puppets to the clothes they wear.

Sometimes things go dreadfully wrong when you wish upon a star, and bad costume choices are made.
Maybe gender swap Disney princess costumes sounded good on paper, but the reality is truly terrifying!
From the look of the banned toys on this list kids used to have much more to worry about then windowless vans and strangers with candy.
Home atomic energy kits, Derringer belt buckles that really burned, and giant darts you tossed in the air and hoped didn't put somebody's eye out, now those are some really good reasons to keep an eye on your kids during playtime!
Bucky Balls, on the other hand, really don't belong on this list, but some people ruin the fun for everyone...
In a recent episode of 30 Rock, Tina Fey's real life daughter Alice Richmond played a young Liz Lemon during a flashback sequence, and from the looks of it she really takes after her mother!
Will little Alice be the next comedic sensation? Maybe in about twenty years...
Hit the link if you want to see a clip from the show where Alice made her comedy debut.
It's about that time again- time to look back at the year's most commonly chosen (aka most popular) baby names!
Once again Sophia and Aiden top the list, but surprisingly there are very few popular celebrity baby names like Apple, Honey BooBoo or Jermajesty. Oh well, maybe next year!
If this little Hannibal Lecter wanted to have your brain as a main course with a side of fava beans and a glass of non-alcoholic Chianti the only appropriate response would be "awww, how cute!"
Maybe that's how he gets away with his crimes- he uses his adorableness to brainwash people into looking the other way.
All jokes aside, let's just hope this little guy got the Y-7 rundown on Hannibal Lecter from his parents and hasn't actually seen the movies!

When it comes time to carve up your jack-o-lantern you'll find that you can never have too many carving templates to choose from, and the more geeky templates in your collection the better!
Here's a selection of Firefly inspired templates, with a few Heroes templates thrown in because the post is from a while back, and there are links to Battlestar Galactica, Pan's Labyrinth and Star Trek: The Original Series templates as well.

Here in southern California surfing is a year-round sport, with warm waters to greet you even in the middle of winter. Surf culture is huge, and some people don't want to bother changing into their wetsuit before hitting a tasty curl, so they can be seen surfing in their Halloween costumes!

Do you think graffiti is all letters you can't read and ugly, destructive scrawls that destroy the concrete beauty of a cityscape? Think again... Graf is art, and graf writers love them some Halloween!
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...
How's this for motivation? You're tired, weak in the knees and can't seem to go on until a zombie clown comes after you and motivates you to RUN!
There are lots of zombie runs taking place across the country these days, and they all have one main factor in common- having zombies chase after you means you will stay in the race, unless you want to become a high protein snack...

Rich Ferguson, the guy behind the Head Drop Trick we posted a while ago (Link) is back, and this time he's making people believe that his head fell off while riding on an elevator.
Some people have a hard time riding on elevators because of issues with confined spaces, but after riding with Rich the people in this video are probably going to start taking the stairs!

Everyone wants their kids to be smart and live up to their mental potential, but the kids on this list may be too smart for their own good.
From uncovering a nationwide donut conspiracy to disapproving of the pernicious influences of vapid celebrity culture, these youngsters have life all figured out, and they're not even finished with elementary school!

This cute little washing machine girl was very proud of her amazing costume, which won her first prize in a costume contest, until people started asking her to wash their socks and underwear for them, then the whole thing kind of lost its flavor...
Alvin and the Chipmunks used to be cool, with many hit records and a very popular animated TV show, and then they made some atrocious CGI movies where the boys used hip lingo and rapped.
Well kiddies, the Chipmunks are still cool, and to prove it here's their Halloween special collection full of cartoon chipmunk fun! At over an hour in length, this is one Halloween cartoon show that will do wonders for the reputation of Alvin, Simon and Theodore.
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.
Some days it seems like the Earth itself has turned against you, and you just can't win. Well, after you watch this short film entitled 40 Years you'll feel a little bit better, because at least you don't have a giant rock monster chasing after you!
Hit the link below if you'd like to watch this awesome short film, and if you're interested there are some amazing process videos on YouTube which show you how the filmmakers brought their rock monster to life.
Don't let those little arms fool you- Indiana Bones is one tough archaeologist, and his dog faced steed is always ready to accompany him on an adventure, even when things get ruff!
Coming soon to theaters- Indiana Bones and the Raiders of the Lost Arf.
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.
Hopefully this prank isn't the only reason he created such an amazing costume!
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.
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 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!
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...
