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

Photo: r3v || cls/Flickr

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!

Halloween Costuming Done Right - Paint Your Face!

When putting together the perfect gruesome getup for Halloween it's important not to overlook one crucial element- makeup!

Whether you're applying a bit of makeup detail, or you're going for that fully painted face look, it's one element of Halloween costuming that's often missing from otherwise terror-ific looks.

An overall face paint can radically change the way your face looks, especially from far away, but if you just want to add a bit of color this is one of those rare cases where overdoing it is better than being subtle, after all you want people to notice your work, right?

Remember that classic Motown tune Devil With A Blue Dress On which was made famous by Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels back in 1964?

Well, the guy in this picture decided to create a literal translation of the song lyrics when he created his clever costume, and I'm sure he raised lots of hell that Halloween.

Delightful Halloween Bento Boxes

The kids lucky enough to've received these Halloween bento boxes probably didn't appreciate the fact that they're beautiful works of food art, or how much time and energy was spent creating each one, but at least we get to enjoy the pictures taken before they were gobbled up!

William Shatner Plays Edgar Allen Poe

(YouTube Link)

Way back in that golden year known as 1983 William Shatner played the prince of poetic darkness Edgar Allen Poe in a retro TV gem called The Magical Musical Halloween Show.

Audience reactions ranged from "hmmmm" to "oh dear god make it stop!" with a few "his words doth speaketh to mine soul" in between, and if you ask me it was too terrifying to watch in its entirety so try to sit through it all...if you dare!

Nickelodeon's Lost Halloween Film Cry Baby Lane

(YouTube Link)

Cry Baby Lane is a lost teenie horror film that was supposed to premiere on Nickelodeon in October, 2000 but was pulled from broadcast due to parental protest.

The story involves conjoined twins imprisoned by their father, and the teens that summon their spirits back from the dead to haunt the town, and even though it was supposed to air a mere twelve years ago it seems rather tame by today's standards.

Here, in all its made-for-television splendor, is the full length version of Cry Baby Lane so you can see what you've been missing!

Meet Zelda, a cake that's far too beautiful to be eaten, which is too bad because she actually sounds quite delicious:

Update-- Karen has her own blog called Special Sugar, check it out cake lovers!

Anatomical Barbie By Jason Freeny

Anatomical Barbie is not the sort of doll a little girl would enjoy putting up in her dollhouse, unless the girl in question wants to be a surgeon some day.

Created by artist and toy slicer Jason Freeny, it's all been exposed for the sake of seeing what makes Barbie tick, and I'll say one thing on her behalf- for a plastic doll she sure has a lot of guts!

Halloween Bearding Done Right - Female Edition

Women should definitely consider incorporating a beard into their Halloween costume as long as you go about it the right way, so you don't end up looking like someone who glued trimmed hairs onto their face!

Photo: ideath/Flickr

This gal looks amazing in her beard, because she applied her beard the hard way, one clump at a time, and paid attention to details so the whole thing looks uniform and realistic. Any sideshows missing a bearded lady? I think I just found her....

Photo: kshilcutt/Flickr

The bearded lady in this picture has taken the beard a bit too far, so she has a young Santa thing going on. It helps sell the realism if people can see your mouth, although she did a good job of matching the beard with the wig!

Photo: SanFranAnnie/Flickr

Female bearding- she's doing it all wrong! I'm sure she meant for her beard to look gross, but the whole thing looks very thrown together- the beard color doesn't match her hair, and you should always go for long, straight hairs and avoid using short and curly ones for obvious reasons...

Photo: Clover_1/Flickr

Parents are encouraged to put a beard on their little girl because, let's face it, kids in beards are adorably awesome.

Just make sure you don't go gluing anything to their face, and use a material that's not going to irritate their skin or you might end up with an unhappy trick-or-treater and a serious rash!

Sad Portraits Of Celebrity Impersonators

What is it about this portrait series by photographer Nicolas Silberfaden that makes them so touching?

Maybe it's because we only see impersonators when they're in character, and these photos show them as the vulnerable human beings they are beneath the costume.

Perhaps we actually expect them to act like the characters they're portraying at all times, even though we know they're all dressed up and playing a role.

Whatever it is that makes them so touching also makes me want to hunt down whoever made Superman cry and bop 'em in the nose!

Pop Art Tribute To Monet Made From Plastic Balls

What better place to set up an art installation paying tribute to Claude Monet than the beautiful town of Le Havre, where the forefather of impressionism spent his childhood?

The installation is called Pergola, and it's made from 90,000 plastic balls which are arranged over the grand pergola leading up to Le Havre's City Hall.

Here's more on this optical delight:

90,000 plastic balls are arranged into an image of the wisteria blooms that figure in many of the artist’s oeuvres. The balls come in five tones – an abstracted impressionist palette – and climb towards the abundant sunlight, creating an exuberant play of color, light and shadows underneath. As with many of the projects by Claude Cormier + Associés Inc., the deliberate insertion of the artificial shakes up preconceived ideas – but the installation also aims, more simply, to delight visitors.

Deadpool Versus Gangnam Style

(YouTube Link)

Don't bring Marvel's wackiest assassin Deadpool to the Gangnam Style party unless you want things to go b-a-n-a-n-a-s!

Check out Deadpool's trip around town, as he dances his spandex-clad butt off, parodies the original Gangnam Style video by Psy and entertains the interwebs at the same time.

It's a good thing Deadpool doesn't die, because his superheroic brand of comedy makes life worth living. Is that an overstatement, or what?! *grin*
