Time-Lapse Video Of Massive LEGO Vampire Being Built

(YouTube Link)

A massive LEGO art vampire was built in New Orleans to officially usher in the Halloween season, and the fun part is- it was built by a crowd of people!

Here's more on this epic scale LEGO build:

LEGO kicked off the countdown to the Halloween season by inviting the New Orleans community to build a 12-foot tall LEGO vampire by the light of the full moon in the company’s first ever all night build. Set against the backdrop of Jackson Square and the St. Louis Cathedral, they built spooky Lego Lord Vampyre -- based on the lead villain from the new Monster Fighters line.

Walking Dead Zombie Head Gelatin Mold

Tired of serving up the same old square gelatin at your dinner parties? Try serving your guests a slab of zombie head instead with this licensed Walking Dead gelatin mold.

Amazing Animatronic Baby T-Rex Costume

(YouTube Link)

A Baby T-Rex isn't normally thought of as a feasible costume option for Halloween, but thanks to some serious prop building skills, and some animatronic magic, the folks at 3dwizart Sculptures were able to make their dinosaur dreams come true.

The ultra-realistic finished product looks ready to eat trick-or-treaters whole, and the only thing this costume is missing is some cover for those human legs sticking out of the bottom!

Retro Style Frankenweenie Movie Poster Designs

The folks behind Tim Burton's new film Frankenweenie know that horror movie posters were best back in the day.

From the fonts to the cheesy taglines to the awesome staging of characters and background, they were often more of a visual treat than the movies themselves!

Frankenweenie, however, is sure to be lots of fun to watch on the big screen, but while we're waiting for it to be released we'll have to settle for enjoying these really cool movie posters...

Little Pink Princess Vader

A darling little Sith Lord got to spend the day at Disneyland in the costume of her choice, so she chose to go as pink princess Darth Vader.

Cuteness could become the ultimate weapon when combined with a Sith Lord's Force powers, but the good guys have a little cuteness of their own named Yoda.

The Political Halloween Mask Poll So Far

Sales of Halloween masks based on U.S. Presidents, and presidential hopefuls, have served as an unofficial election poll that has proven right every time since Clinton Vs. Dole, 1996.

Does the fact that Obama mask sales far outnumber those of the Romney mask prove that he'll be re-elected come November? I guess we'll just have to wait and see...

Giant Pumpkin Head Prop From Halloween 2

This horrifyingly cool giant pumkin monster prop was spotted on Rob Zombie's movie set for Halloween 2.

Sales of kid's Halloween costumes based on the hit TV drama Breaking Bad are expected to soar to an all time high this year, despite the fact that there aren't any officially licensed costumes being sold in stores.

Why is Walter White such a popular costume choice for kids? Because they've mistaken his blue meth for rock candy!

Enhance Your Halloween Costume With Prosthetics

Facial appliances, or prosthetics as they're more commonly known, are a fun and (relatively) easy way to add a fantastically realistic detail to your Halloween costume, and they range from a subtle addition to a visually striking overhaul of your entire face.

Etsy seller Cottage Emporium has a wide selection of fantasy inspired facial appliances, from a witch's nose to big dwarfen ears, devil horns and half face covers that make you look like a monkey or big cat.

With some spirit gum, a splash of color and a bit of practice you can take your Halloween costume from ordinary to most extraordinary with a little help from a special effects prosthetic!

Update- a reader named nihil pointed out that a product called Ben Nye Prosthetic Adhesive works much better than spirit gum, so you may want to look into this product instead. Thanks nihil!

Lame Costumes For Kids From Back In The Day

Licensed costumes used to be pretty sad affairs- a cheap plastic mask, crappy sheet plastic or, if you were lucky, polyester suits and characters that have no place being represented on the trick-or-treat streets of Halloween (see Satan costume above).

We've come a long way in the world of Halloweening, but it sure is fun to take a look back at how bad things were back in the day!

Travel to the link below and you will see why you shouldn't take modern kids costumes for granted...

Terminator Cyborg - Slave Leia Edition

Hybrid costuming is a clever way to let two of your favorite geek universes collide, and create your own original concept at the same time.

Here we see the extremely limited edition Slave Leia Terminator cyborg posing for a picture as she starts to scan the crowd.

She has come from a long, long time ago and a galaxy far, far away to terminate the Dark Side... or is she after Luke and Han?

Custom Floral Costumes That Are Full Of Life

Photo: Mandy/Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons contributor Mandy spotted these two late bloomers at Mardi Gras in 2010, and they seem like the kind of clever costume that would be equally great to wear on Halloween.

Purple, green and gold are the colors of Mardi Gras, but you can easily change the color choices up a bit and make the whole thing more sinister.

And a splash of blood, or some glow-in-the-dark paint here and there, and maybe some sharp teeth so you can warn people that these plants are carnivorous!

Tall Guy Dressed Like A Short Guy On Stilts

Here's a clever costume idea for all the really tall people out there- dress like a short person walking on stilts!

It's incredibly easy to create this illusion- just cover those long legs, cardboard or painted foam both work well, cut holes in a pair of shoes so you can pull them up around your knees, find a really short pair of pants and you're shortening illusion is complete.

Now the only parts that still look like they belong on a tall person are your really long arms...

Music Video - Halloween Survival Guide

A bunch of guys in a garage created this gloriously bad music video with a good purpose in mind- helping people defend themselves from several types of monsters.

The Horrifying Resident Evil Human Butcher Shop

When you think of video game promotions chances are you think of commercials, billboards and banner ads, but the folks behind Resident Evil decided to take it one step further this year by setting up a human butcher shop that caters to the zombie in all of us.

The sickening spectacle is popping up at Smithfields meat market in London, and those with a strong enough stomach will be treated to sick edibles like peppered human and lemon sausages and scrumptious human face surprise.

(warning- even though these are food products the images found at the link below are shockingly gross!)

This Is Halloween...In Aperture

This Is Aperture is a parody song video that has it all- annoying robot voices, a song similar to the one found in Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas, and lots of beautiful visuals courtesy of the Portal video game series.
What this video doesn't have is a direct tie to Halloween, but that's okay because we're drawing parallels here folks!

One Amazing Act Of Doctor Octopus Cosplay

Dressing up like Doctor Octopus for Halloween may seem like a superheroic feat, but if you look at what this costume is made of you'll find it's not so hard to be DocOc.

Trenchcoat, boots and goggles make up the clothing part of the costume, and the "arms" are made from flexible metal tubing with some kind of square bits covered in foil attached to the ends to form the "hands".

Wise cracking Spider Man not included...

Internet Halloween Costume Mayhem 2011

Folks have taken to dressing up like things found on the interwebs these days, and that's why it's important to see where we stand in terms of internet themed costuming.

A Nutritious And Gross Halloween Kids Lunch

What a fun "gross" Halloween themed lunch you have there!

I see salty pretzel bones, goofy apple lips with marshmallow teeth, a delicious mummy dog, spaghetti worms with blood sauce, and a green pile of goo I can only hope is yogurt.

If you have trouble getting your kids to eat their lunch maybe it's because the food you're serving doesn't look gross enough for your child's discerning tastes...

If Disney Villains Had Won

It seems like fan art is all "Disney, Disney, Disney!" these days, but once in a while a worthy collection of images presents itself, like this series by Justin Turrentine that imagines what the ending of popular Disney movies would have looked like if the villains had won.

Cruella gets her spotted coat, Ursula has one heck of a meal thanks to Flounder and Sebastian, and the Evil Queen gets a particularly gruesome present in a box.

Here's to the bad guys winning once in a while!
