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!

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!

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

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?

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!
