Space Invader Under The Sea

Remember those really cool statues placed under the sea by artist Jason DeCaires Taylor that we posted a while back?

Well, they appear to have been visited by an otherworldly force of pixel art known as Space Invader!

The crafty tile artist has added his signature to the menagerie of humanoid statues, with Jason's permission of course, and that little bit of tile really spruces up the place, don't you think?!

A Bad Lip Reading Of The Hunger Games

(YouTube Link)

YouTuber BadLipReading is turning an otherwise useless skill into an artform, and their dialog overhauls have almost reached a point of synchronicity with their take on The Hunger Games.

Will bad lip reading become the new hotness in movie production?

Probably not, but the amount of funny you can squeeze out of a mere handful of scenes will ensure that creators of online video content will continue to have plenty of footage to play around with!

Campfire Cologne Makes You Smell Like Burning

Are you looking for a way to smell more like a camper and less like an apartment renter/part time yoga class attendee?

You're life is missing the smell of the great outdoors- a campfire made from twigs and branches you gathered at the last minute because you were starting to get cold.

Campfire Cologne has all the smell of a campfire and none of the liquid that's normally associated with colognes.

Simply light the sticks, let the smoky goodness waft your way, and feel your inner beard start to smile. Mmmmm...that's good burning!

Mario Goes Berserk

(YouTube Link)

Apparently all the stress and strain of fixing pipes, jumping over barrels and saving princesses has gotten to poor Mario- he found a battle axe and he's about to lose his mind!

Will he ever find his way back to the Mushroom Kingdom? Do pixelated critters regenerate when they're chopped into little square bits? And what's with the turtle shell on your head Mario?!

(NSFW due to language)

Don't try taking this equine fellow out for a trot, he's late enough for his wizarding exams as it is!

Even though horses can't read they've developed a love for the Harry Potter series based on their love of magical twigs wands and the fact that each volume makes for some mighty good chewin'!

A Bloody Fun Way To Quench Your Thirst

Photo: hooverdust/Flickr

You don't have to be a fan of the HBO series True Blood to appreciate how cool it would be to sip on a vampiric energy drink that'll have everyone believing you're actually drinking blood!

So what goes into a drink to give it that sickeningly sanguine appearance? Simply mix orange juice with presweetened Tropical Punch and/or Strawberry Kool Aid (or equivalent flavored soft drink packets) and you've got a drink that's lip smacking good and Dracula approved.

Twice The Marge Simpson = Twice The Laughs

Photo: EricaJoy/Flickr

As far as cartoon characters go Marge Simpson is a fun and pretty easy Halloween costume to put together, but you may have some competition at the party!

One Marge is enough, two simply won't do, especially when neither one of them have the proper yellow skin tone.

And is that Barney the town drunk I see lurking in the background?

Hole Thru Chest Illusion Created Using iPads

(YouTube Link)

Here's a clever way to simulate a fatal chest wound this Halloween- mount iPads to the front and back of your costume and let the see-thru fun begin!

The iPad's onboard cameras are set up to show whatever is in front of, or behind, the poor hole-y victim of chest trauma, making them appear to be a few internal organs short of a full set.

Hopping Around In A Pixar Lamp Costume

(YouTube Link)

Wearing a desk lamp shaped costume, which was inspired by the Pixar short Luxo Jr., may not be the most comfortable option on Halloween, but you're sure to get lots of compliments on your bright idea!

The biggest problem with this creative costume- you have to hop around all night, dragging your big fat base around, which will make it really hard to trick-or-treat.

Mildly Disturbing Scenes Discovered At LEGOLAND

If you look too closely at the plastic brick sculpture displays in LEGOLAND Florida you may see some mildly disturbing scenes, like the "Man choking on croissant is given the Heimlich maneuver" diorama featured above.

Their presence in the park seems to indicate that one of LEGOLAND's brick jockeys has a wicked sense of humor, and that life in the world of LEGO can be every bit as strange and awkward as it is in the real world.

Ben Folds Five And Fraggles = Awesome Music Video

(YouTube Link)

It's quite possible that the Ben Folds Five are using the Fraggles in order to bring in those all important Gen X bucks, and that's okay.

We don't have enough Fraggles in our lives, and Ben Folds Five really knows how to lay down a super def jammy jam, so bring on the fuzzy puppets piano guy!

Portraits Painted On Floppy Disks By Nick Gentry

Nick Gentry has a found a good use for those stacks of leftover 3.5 inch floppy disks- he puts them all together and paints a portrait on top.

It's a fusion of technojunk and fine art, which seems to be Nick's favorite form of recycling (see his previous Neatorama entry HERE), and since we tech obsessed humans are creating more and more waste every day at least Nick's using it for something good!

Starry Night Jack-O-Lantern

The Museum Of Modern Art presents what may be the artsiest jack-o-lantern ever carved, based on the painting Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh.

It's a brilliant display of squash carving skills, and probably looks even cooler with the lights off, just like the real stars in the sky!

You Decide - Halloween Or Williamsburg, New York?

From the look of these photos Williamsburg, a neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York, is a rather colorful place to live, and it's hard to tell if people are dressed up for a night on the town or a Halloween party!

Good thing there's a Tumblr site called Halloween or Williamsburg to clear things up...wait, I take that back...the blurbs about each pic on the site only cause more confusion!

Oh well, I guess we're not meant to know whether it's Williamsburg or Halloween after all...

Big Head Mode In Real Life

Inspired by the secret Big Head mode found in some video games, clever costumer/digital artist Eric Testroete used 3d modeling software and a printer to create one amazing Halloween mask.

He printed out each polygon of his 3d model on cardstock paper, then put them all together with various adhesives to form this glorious example of swollen noggin syndrome.

I Told My Kids That I Ate All Their Halloween Candy

(YouTube Link)

A good parent holds on to their child's candy stash after Halloween, so the little critters don't eat it all in one sitting.

A bad parent eats all of their kid's candy while holding on to it, then lies about what happened to it all, typically blaming it on some poor innocent pet.

A twisted parent holds on to their candy but tells their kids that they've eaten it all, then they film their kids reaction as the little ones lose their minds!

How To Make Graveyard Brownies

Photo: sporkwrapper/Flickr

Turning ordinary brownies into a graveyard treat for ghoulish appetites is simply a matter of adding details and props to the earth brownie base to complete the scene.

As pictured above: crumble up chocolate cookies as dirt, with gruesome gummi earthworms ready to gobble up.

Want a grassy graveyard? Add frosting dyed with green food coloring once the brownies have had time to cool, then use a fork to add a grassy texture to the scene.

Cut the sides off of white Necco wafers, or slice white chocolate squares to shape and you've got delicious tombstone details to complete your cemetery scene.

And with all the different gummi shapes available, why not add spiders, bugs or bats to your brownie boneyard?

Your guests will thank you for the delicious addition, and you'll have something to brag about!

A Traditional Irish Jack-o-Lantern

Photo: ranná¹—áirtí anaiṫnid/Wikimedia Commons

This traditional Irish jack-o-lantern looks more terrifying than most of the carved pumpkin's I've seen, yet somehow more faithfully represents Halloween's earthy origin.

The spooky face is carved into a turnip, then it's placed in front of the house in order to scare off the evil spirits taking flight on All Hallows Eve. It scares me and I ain't even dead yet!

The Ultimate Accessory For A Pirate Costume

Parrots have long been associated with those swashbuckling scoundrels of the seas, and they make the perfect addition to any Pirate themed Halloween costume!

However, you may want to consider using a stuffed parrot instead of a living, squawking and biting real life bird, so you don't have to worry your hanky wrapped head about their wellbeing when you've had a bit too much grog!
