The Right And Wrong Way To Dress Up Like Homer Simpson

Homer Simpson is a popular Halloween costume choice which is pretty easy to put together, but when you dress up like a Simpson it's the details that matter.

The first guy's doing it right- full face mask, good belly pad, proper outfit and yellow gloves to finish it all off.

The second guy is doing it all wrong- he's got only half a mask, and some terribly thin yellow paint slapped haphazardly all over his face. His belly pad is hanging out, his pants aren't the right color, and for that matter neither are his arms! D'oh!

Skeleton Maternity Shirts For Guys And Ghouls

Expectant mothers can now proudly display an artist's rendition of their unborn child's skeleton via their baby bump thanks to this skeleton maternity t-shirt by Etsy seller BabyTalk Designs.

There's even a version for the sympathetic husband, which shows all the beer bottles(?) he's swallowed while anxiously awaiting the birth of his child, and a kid's version with a tummy full of candy.

It's more fun than showing everyone the ultrasound pictures, even if it's not exactly anatomically correct.

Some thrill seeking Halloweenies from Bogota, Colombia put together this two-person roller coaster costume and brought the thrill of the theme parks into their everyday lives.

Halloween Traditions- The Keene Pumpkin Festival

Photo: Jeff Newcomer/Flickr

Keene, New Hampshire is home to a Halloween tradition that really lights up the night- the town gets together and carves thousands of pumpkins, which they display on a pumpkin pyramid, in an attempt to break a world's record.

In 2012 the town carved a total of 29,381 pumpkins, which is short of the 32,000 pumpkin world record, but the sheer spectacle of the event and town unity have made the Keene Pumpkin Festival a big hit since 1991.

Vintage Magazine Ad For Halloween 3 Masks

Halloween III is the only film in the franchise that doesn't feature Michael Myers, focusing instead on an evil mask manufacturer that sells masks which are made to melt kids heads on Halloween night.

And when the movie came out replicas of the three masks-pumpkin, witch and skeleton- were sold by Don Post studios in monster mags like Fangoria, head melting chip not included.

The characters were simple so they fit in with the rest of the Halloween pantheon, but anyone who'd seen the movie must have been tickled to see kids walking around sporting these deadly head melting masks.

Obviously Unlicensed Costumes

Anyone who has visited a costume store around Halloween has seen these unlicensed costumes sporting ridiculously vague titles and low price tags. They're a godsend when throwing together a last minute costume, and good for a cheap laugh while browsing online costume sites.

But what's with the deceptive titles? Can't we call a Caribbean Buccaneer a Pirate of the Caribbean instead? And who do they think they're fooling with those tired old Hollywood Starlet and British Sleuth tags? That's Sherlock Holmes and Marilyn Monroe!

Die Hard...With A Baby

Action stars and superheroes are all so played out, it's time to let the babies of the world show 'em all how it's done.

First stop- Die Hard recast with a much younger John McClane, chomping on candy cigarettes and shooting his bubble gun while yelling "Yippie kay yay mothertruckers!" Now that would make a good remake!

The Couples Costume That Ruled Halloween 2012

Moonrise Kingdom accomplished two things this year- showing the world that new movies can be great without a superhero in sight, and creating a costume craze for couples come Halloween.

Suzy Bishop and Sam Shakusky are pretty awesome characters, and their outfits are pretty darn nifty, so it's agreed- Moonrise Kingdom is a good source of inspiration for Halloween costuming!

Custom Made Xenomorphic Skull Helmet

This terrifyingly stylish piece of headgear was created by DeviantARTist Psychopat6666, a ghoulishly good mask and costume designer from Bulgaria.

It's got the bony charm of a skull and the spaced out details of a Xenomorphic extraterrestrial, and will definitely turn heads on the Con floor.

Halloween Themed Missed Connections On Craigslist

The Craigslist personal ad section called Missed Connections is a good place to find a cheap laugh, as you wonder at the sort of nutjob who would write such ridiculous ads in the hopes of finding love.

But Missed Connections is never so colorful as it is around Halloween, when Liza Minelli seeks the Silver Surfer and Skeleton Guy goes Looking For Sarah. It's a comedy and tragedy all rolled into one sad Craigslist personal ad after another!
