CollegeHumor's 2011 Costume Party Finalists

CollegeHumor is known for their crass sense of humor and hilarious videos, so you're probably asking yourself "what's up with the costumes?".

Well, CH hosts a Halloween costume contest every year they call the Costume Party, and you can see pics of the nine finalists from 2011 at the link below.

They're a fine looking group of costumed contestants, but don't take my word for it - ask Mr. Peanut!

Zombified Versions Of Classic Cartoon Characters

Apparently cartoon characters aren't immune to the zombie virus, although they don't seem to be falling to pieces like most of the human beings who are infected.

Illustrator Andre De Freitas enjoys turning cute little toons into slavering undead monsters, and his white eyed zombies look like they've just undergone the transformation and are ready to chew up the Saturday morning cartoons we know and love!

Careful With That Hammer Little Thor!

(YouTube Link)

Here's one little Asgardian that doesn't need a lesson in harnessing the power of the mighty Mjolnir, but it's too bad that he figured out how to unleash it's lightning power on his father's car!

Oh well, boys will be boys, even when the boy in question is a young Thor.

Questionable American Horror Story Costumes

While watching American Horror Story did you ever think to yourself "gee, the outfits those characters are wearing would make great Halloween costumes!"

Between the rubber gimp man, the slutty maid and the man with the melted face your choices of costume inspiration seem slim to none, unless you want to be left alone on Halloween...

Apparently the folks at Target don't agree, and they've released a line of AHS inspired costumes of, you guessed it, the gimp, the maid and the burned man.

So, if you're looking for something really freaky to wear this Halloween, now you have a few choices waiting for you at Target, and one size most certainly does not fit all!

The Avengers Drawn Tim Burton Style

What would The Avengers look like if Tim Burton had drawn them?

Well, they would be very lanky, of course, and a bit rough around the edges.

They'd all have big ol' eyes and a pointy chin, and feet so tiny it's amazing they can stand up at all!

Tim Burton inspired versions of The Avengers brought to you by DeviantARTist La-Chapeliere-Folle, an artist who clearly feels that the original character designs were far too muscular.

Truly Tasteless Costumes - One Night Stand

Photo: alt text/Flickr

Photo: Hummingbird

I know sexy costumes are a popular choice for Halloween, but who knew that displaying your promiscuity for the world would make for such a funny costume?

The One Night Stand is a costume choice that either says "I have a punny sense of humor", or "I have little to no self respect!"

Have fun explaining this one to the kiddies!

A Death Star Jack-O-Lantern

Here's a tribute to the Dark Side of pumpkin carving- it's a jack-o-lantern carved to look like everyone's favorite killer space station the Death Star.

I bet this finely carved work of pumpkin art would look quite spectacular being blown up in slow motion, but that'll have to wait until after Halloween!

The Right And Wrong Way To Dress Up Like Winnie The Pooh

Pooh Bear is a popular costume choice when you're a kid, but when you're all grown up it's way too easy to do Pooh Bear costuming all wrong!

Photo: Loozrboy/Flickr

The guys in this pic are doing it right- happy faces, soft clean costumes and they both look pretty cuddly despite being grown men in Pooh and Tigger getups. Even their face painting says "Don't be afraid, we're nice guys!"

However, the creepy guy in this second picture is doing Pooh Bear all wrong- from the terrifying face paint to the scary look in his eyes to the short sleeves and short pants look, this is one Winnie you wouldn't want to run into in a dark alley!

Every year ghosts, ghouls and crazy kooks sporting costumes take over the streets of Greenwich Village, New York for the annual Halloween Parade.

Lots of dancing, like in the street dancing...What a fantabulous festive night of freaky fun!

Halloween In The Big Easy

N'awlins, or New Orleans to those who ain't Cajun savvy, is a party city like no other.

The Big Easy hosts many massive celebrations throughout the year, most of which involve floats, wearing costumes and a festive atmosphere that permeates the entire downtown area.

This year they're throwing one heck of a Halloween party that promises to have lots of fun activities for adults to take part in as well as kids, including Haunted Tours, a massive street party, Boo at the Audobon Zoo, trick-or-treating and much more.

It's a sure bet that a trip to N'awlins around All Hallows Eve will be a vacation you'll never forget!

Una Zucca Intagliata Per Halloween

Photo: Bissolis/Wikimedia Commons

Who says the pumpkin you carve into a jack-o-lantern this Halloween has to be the same old boring shade of orange?

This big ol' smiley guy is a Ton-Gua pumpkin which is native to China, although this particular carving comes to us from Mr. Efram Passarini Cerea of Verona, Italy. He's a multicultural carving, and proud of it.

So don't be afraid to carve a different kind of pumpkin this Halloween, embrace squash diversity!

Incredible Ninja Turtle Balloon Costume

(YouTube Link)

I'm not sure how I missed this awesome Ninja Turtle balloon costume when I posted the Buzz Lightyear version a while back (Link), so here it is in all its teenage mutant glory.

The creators of both costumes are part of Balloon Distractions, a group who enjoys bending balloons into eye pleasing shapes and teaching novice balloon artists how it's done.

Check out their YouTube channel if you want to learn how to make some balloon art of your own, although there's no guarantee that the nerve-wracking sqeaking won't drive you crazy!

Turn Your Dog Into An Epic Mount

Strapping a saddle on your dog is wrong when you're a kid, but when you're all grown up and have a pet of your own you can make your pet wear whatever you want.

That's why you need the Dog Riders Pet Costumes- they satisfy your dog's need to serve as a mount for a monkey, a headless horsemen or a little racehorse jockey, among the other fun versions available.

And best of all they don't bother your dog (much), so even PETA can't get peeved about this one!

Check them out right in our very own Neatoshop, or shop elsewhere if you dare...

WTF Is A Bagelhead?

Watch out for these freaks, because they've got a forehead shaped like a bagel and an oy vey attitude to match!

Bagelheads have their foreheads injected with a saline solution that they mold into a bagel-like shape, and it's a trend that's still blowing up in Japan many years later.

Adrienne first brought you the story of the Bagelhead body modification trend in June of 2011 (Link), and I can't help but wonder- why is this still a thing?!

Pumpkin On Pumpkin Violence

Can't the Halloweenies of the world just get along?

Apparently not, and we blame the bad blood on the big bullies, like the toothy guy in this pic, who like to pick on the little guys.

Doesn't he know that they're from the same corner of the pumpkin patch?!

Anoka, Minnesota - The Halloween Capital Of The World

(YouTube Link)

The small northern town of Anoka, Minnesota has proclaimed itself to be the Halloween Capital of the World.

Every year they host an Orange Tie Ball, Halloween parades, pumpkin carving competitions, house decorating contests, Grey Ghost 5k and the coronation of a Royal Ambassador to spread the spook-tacular vibes.

So why is Anoka the Halloween Capital?

Anoka, Minnesota is believed to be the first city in the United States to put on a Halloween celebration to divert its youngsters from Halloween pranks.

In 1920, George Green and other Anoka civic leaders suggested the idea of a giant celebration.

Celebrations have been held every year since 1920 with the exception of 1942 and 1943 when the festivities were cancelled because of World War II.

Are Halloween Trees The New Hotness In Holiday Decor?

Photo: Suzie Tremmel/Flickr

When you think of Halloween decorations one word typically doesn't come to mind - TREE.

But more and more people are putting up Halloween trees adorned with ghastly ornaments and candy as part of their holiday decor.

It's a cute idea, but where does it end? Before you know it we'll be buying Valentine's Day trees and turkey shaped Thanksgiving bushes, and deforestation for the sake of decor isn't cool.

Besides, wouldn't it be more appropriate to use a rotten old gnarled tree corpse as a Halloween tree?

The United States Of Scary Things

Things are mighty scary in these United States, and the scary varies from state to state.

These aren't made up critters that go bump in the night though, these are real things that everyone should be scared of, like hurricanes and killer bees, zombie Lincoln and cheese heads?!

Okay, so some of these things are made up, or are they....
