Geeks Are Sexy 2012 Reader Costume Roundup

The bad thing about Halloween being over is you no longer have an excuse to wear a costume to work, and jack-o-lanterns no longer light up the porches in your neighborhood.

The good thing about Halloween being over is you get to eat all the leftover candy, and blog readers send in pics of themselves all dressed up in their finest, and geekiest, costumes!

Peruse the gallery of reader submitted costume pics over at Geeks Are Sexy and choke back those tears that well up when you realize that Halloween is well and truly over...until next year...*sigh*

Dazzling Street Art By Shida

The amazing mural works of Australian street artist Shida aren't lacking in style or detail, and they certainly don't look like every other painting slapped on a wall.

Shida excels in the use of color, intricate linework and designing characters that look like delicate monsters, beautiful yet edgy and full of pointy bits.

Swirling Op-Art On The High Trestle Trail Bridge

By day the High Trestle Trail Bridge in Des Moines, Iowa looks pretty normal, aside from the tilted steel beams above the footpath, but at night the bridge lights up and blows minds.

Here's more on this brightly glowing bridge:

Towering 13 stories above the Des Moines River Valley in Iowa, The High Trestle Trail Bridge is one of the largest foot bridges in the world. Completed last year, the bridge now comes complete with one of the best examples of public art I’ve seen in a long time. Designed by David B. Dahlquist of RDG Dahlquist Art Studio, the steel  beams that swirl around the bridge not only accentuates the motion of pedestrians moving back and forth across the bridge but also create a gorgeous op-art effect that makes you feel as though you’re in the middle of a surreal stop motion animation.

The Davis Family Graveyard Is One Spooktastic Yard Display

The Pacific Northwest is home to lots of unexplained phenomena and general wierdness, especially around Halloween, so those who embrace the darkside probably won't find the Davis Graveyard in Milwaukie, Oregon to be terrifying.

However, here's what this amateur yard display has going for it, and why haunt fans from across the country should pay a visit:

they have LOTS of Haunted Mansion references -- a full-sized horse-drawn hearse, a skeleton trying to get out of a coffin, a singing statue who briefly recites the Ghost Host's narration, and a replica of the frightened gravedigger. And that's just the icing on top of all the geeky pop-culture references on the gravestones, the excellent projected ghosts, etc.

2012 HallowMEME Party Video

The 2012 HallowMEME party looks like it was a real blast, with all the dorkiest internet memes in attendance including Ehrmagherd, Gangnam style and a victim of human breading.

Started by Forced Meme Productions in 2009, this internet meme-themed Halloween costume party takes place in Brooklyn, New York and keeps getting bigger every year, with several hundred people in attendance this year despite the fact that Hurricane Sandy was knocking on the door.

An Animated Short That Will Put Stars In Your Eyes

 (YouTube Link)

La Luna is a Pixar short with a lot of heart, a story of passing down family traditions no matter how unusual and an absolutely gorgeous film to watch.

With thematic elements reminiscent of The Little Prince and Nemo's Adventures In Slumberland, this is yet another classic short to add to Pixar's already impressive catalog of great CGI films.

Video Games Go Trick-Or-Treating

(Dorkly Link)

It's hard to break character when you're a video game superstar because everyone expects you to do your moves while wearing your signature outfit. 

Halloween means you're even more typecast, so some characters to decide to play up their lot in virtual life and dish out the tricks, regardless of whether their chances of getting treats are ruined. 

(Barely NSFW due to language)

Stupid Sexy Flanders Costume

There are obscure costumes based on The Simpsons and then there's this: a costume of "stupid sexy Flanders" as seen in the episode Little Big Mom.

The memory of Flanders wiggling his butt made Homer lose control on the slopes, so did this costume clad Halloweenie got the same reaction when people saw them wearing this hilarious costume?!

A Pug Named Bane

Batman sure has his work cut out for him, trying to restore order in Gotham City while defending himself against not one but two super villains named Bane.

One is human, which makes him easy enough to deal with, but this pug named Bane is able to take down an entire city with the power of cuteness.

How will Batman ever take down such an adorable foe? One word-Snausages!

The First Meme Of The 20th Century Stars A Dancing Pig

(YouTube Link)

Le Cochon Danseur (the dancing pig) is a film oddity from 1907, based on a vaudeville act, which stars a lascivious pig headed fellow with eyes for the young lady with whom he shares a stage.

According to Know Your Meme, it's the last bit of this strange short that made it so well known:

...most noticed part of the play is the last 20 seconds, showing the pig flailing his tongue and laughing showing his sharp, scary teeth. Most people thought this was rather disturbing and focused mainly on this part because of it. Other then that, the rest of the clip is the pig winking and boggling his eyes in strange ways

Sounds like this little piggy skipped the market and went straight off the deep end!

Waffles The Rodeo Corgi

Waffles the bucking corgi had one heck of a fun Halloween, because he got to live out his dreams of being a big old bull in a world full of tiny humans.

Waffles sure is a happy little guy, and unlike most dogs he seems to really like wearing his costume. Can't wait to see what he dresses up as next year!

Directors Audition For Star Wars Episode VII

(Video Link)

(Video Link)

(Video Link)

The quest to find a new director worthy of guiding the Star Wars saga in the right direction has begun, and celeb filmmakers such as Woody Allen, Kevin Smith and Michael Moore are vying for the job in these hilarious audition tapes courtesy of Conan.

Kevin Smith would be a good choice, but a Star Wars movie directed by Woody Allen would be too talky, and Michael Moore would just turn the whole thing into a documentary about the injustices suffered by the universe at the hands of Jabba the Hutt!

Sculptural Collages Cut From Antique Books

Destroying an antique book seems like a shame, but if the book in question is being turned into such an incredibly cool work of art then maybe it's a worthwhile endeavor after all.

Here's how crafty book lover Alexander Korzer-Robinson creates these wonderfully intricate collages:

Alexander Korzer-Robinson delves into antiquarian books, cutting out everything except the images on each page, leaving them in their proper order. The element of randomness inherent in these pages-deep collages is part of what attracts him to the medium. ”By using pre-existing media as a starting point,” he writes, “certain boundaries are set by the material, which I aim to transform through my process.

Incredible 3D Illustrations By Ramon Bruin

Ramon Bruin creates playful illustrations that actually look like they're leaping off the page, and the way he photographs them interacting with the world around them completes this realistic effect in style.

Ramon uses an airbrush to render his illusionary illustrations because "The airbrushing technique makes it possible to display different densities of color by creating various gradients."

Studio Ghibli Characters In Real Life

The amazing animated features made by Studio Ghibli star characters so well crafted they could leap off the screen and nobody would ever know they're toons, except for those spooked by pilots sporting pig faces and cat-headed gentlemen.

Re-imagining Studio Ghibli characters in real life makes perfect sense, and these digital images by Amgskate will leave you wishing these characters walked amongst us, adding a bit of imaginative color to our reality show world.

Jimmy Kimmel Live has once again issued a YouTube challenge to parents willing to tell their kids that they ate all their Halloween and video tape the whole ordeal for the sake of comedy gold!

Reverse Trick-Or-Treating - The Video

(YouTube Link)

It's a costume and a prank, a way to give out candy and get some laughs while vexing those who don't understand what the heck you're up to.

Watch as unwitting neighbors see folks walking up to their door holding a door and a bowl of candy, and LOL as they fail to understand the ridiculousness of it all.

Old Gotye Song Gets Fun New Animated Video

(YouTube Link)

Before Gotye got all weepy with his hit song Somebody That I Used To Know he had a dub sound without all that sappy singing in a song called Seven Hours With A Backseat Driver.

The sound is so different that it's hard to see how Gotye got to where he is today, and when Ivan Dixon and Greg Sharp of Rubber House Studio heard it they imagined a town full of animals acting the fool, and a bowtie clad elephant who doesn't know what to do...

Taco Cannon Makes Dinner Dangerous

(YouTube Link)

Humanity has reached the point where we are no longer satisfied with eating dinner safely at home- we need excitement, and entertainment, with our meals, and that's where the Taco Cannon comes in.

This launcher of tortilla shelled foodstuffs was created by Torchy's Tacos for the Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas, launching tacos into the mouths of hungry Fest attendees with the power of CO2. Talk about serving up fast food!

The Uncanny Edo Period X-Men

Alex Mitchell is back with another historically re-envisioned superhero team- the Edo period X-Men!

This alternate version of the X-Men may have found their powers through magic instead of mutation, but they still look like they'd mess you up for spilling their Sapporo, except for Jubilee who looks too cute to be threatening.

You can find the team, their enemies, and the story behind each character at Alex's DeviantART page below.

The Future Is Safe Thanks To Manborg

(YouTube Link)

The studio behind schlocky 80s style sci-fi flick Manborg must have heard us crying in our glasses of moloko plus about how good modern special effects look, and how dull many of today's genre films have become. 

Manborg is so bad it's good, playing with film cliches and starring characters that look like they came straight out of <insert video game title here>.

This is a film for the grindhouse lover who also misses laughing along while action stars like Jean Claude Van Damme kick people in the face.

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

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...
