Halloween In The Big Easy

N'awlins, or New Orleans to those who ain't Cajun savvy, is a party city like no other.

The Big Easy hosts many massive celebrations throughout the year, most of which involve floats, wearing costumes and a festive atmosphere that permeates the entire downtown area.

This year they're throwing one heck of a Halloween party that promises to have lots of fun activities for adults to take part in as well as kids, including Haunted Tours, a massive street party, Boo at the Audobon Zoo, trick-or-treating and much more.

It's a sure bet that a trip to N'awlins around All Hallows Eve will be a vacation you'll never forget!

Una Zucca Intagliata Per Halloween

Who says the pumpkin you carve into a jack-o-lantern this Halloween has to be the same old boring shade of orange?

This big ol' smiley guy is a Ton-Gua pumpkin which is native to China, although this particular carving comes to us from Mr. Efram Passarini Cerea of Verona, Italy. He's a multicultural carving, and proud of it.

So don't be afraid to carve a different kind of pumpkin this Halloween, embrace squash diversity!

Incredible Ninja Turtle Balloon Costume

(YouTube Link)

I'm not sure how I missed this awesome Ninja Turtle balloon costume when I posted the Buzz Lightyear version a while back (Link), so here it is in all its teenage mutant glory.

The creators of both costumes are part of Balloon Distractions, a group who enjoys bending balloons into eye pleasing shapes and teaching novice balloon artists how it's done.

Check out their YouTube channel if you want to learn how to make some balloon art of your own, although there's no guarantee that the nerve-wracking sqeaking won't drive you crazy!

Turn Your Dog Into An Epic Mount

Strapping a saddle on your dog is wrong when you're a kid, but when you're all grown up and have a pet of your own you can make your pet wear whatever you want.

That's why you need the Dog Riders Pet Costumes- they satisfy your dog's need to serve as a mount for a monkey, a headless horsemen or a little racehorse jockey, among the other fun versions available.

And best of all they don't bother your dog (much), so even PETA can't get peeved about this one!

Check them out right in our very own Neatoshop, or shop elsewhere if you dare...

WTF Is A Bagelhead?

Watch out for these freaks, because they've got a forehead shaped like a bagel and an oy vey attitude to match!

Bagelheads have their foreheads injected with a saline solution that they mold into a bagel-like shape, and it's a trend that's still blowing up in Japan many years later.

Adrienne first brought you the story of the Bagelhead body modification trend in June of 2011 (Link), and I can't help but wonder- why is this still a thing?!

Pumpkin On Pumpkin Violence

Can't the Halloweenies of the world just get along?

Apparently not, and we blame the bad blood on the big bullies, like the toothy guy in this pic, who like to pick on the little guys.

Doesn't he know that they're from the same corner of the pumpkin patch?!

Anoka, Minnesota - The Halloween Capital Of The World

(YouTube Link)

The small northern town of Anoka, Minnesota has proclaimed itself to be the Halloween Capital of the World.

Every year they host an Orange Tie Ball, Halloween parades, pumpkin carving competitions, house decorating contests, Grey Ghost 5k and the coronation of a Royal Ambassador to spread the spook-tacular vibes.

So why is Anoka the Halloween Capital?

Anoka, Minnesota is believed to be the first city in the United States to put on a Halloween celebration to divert its youngsters from Halloween pranks.

In 1920, George Green and other Anoka civic leaders suggested the idea of a giant celebration.

Celebrations have been held every year since 1920 with the exception of 1942 and 1943 when the festivities were cancelled because of World War II.

Are Halloween Trees The New Hotness In Holiday Decor?

Photo: Suzie Tremmel/Flickr

When you think of Halloween decorations one word typically doesn't come to mind - TREE.

But more and more people are putting up Halloween trees adorned with ghastly ornaments and candy as part of their holiday decor.

It's a cute idea, but where does it end? Before you know it we'll be buying Valentine's Day trees and turkey shaped Thanksgiving bushes, and deforestation for the sake of decor isn't cool.

Besides, wouldn't it be more appropriate to use a rotten old gnarled tree corpse as a Halloween tree?

Are my eyes playing tricks on me, or is that Luke Skywalker riding a Tauntaun through my neighborhood?

The United States Of Scary Things

Things are mighty scary in these United States, and the scary varies from state to state.

These aren't made up critters that go bump in the night though, these are real things that everyone should be scared of, like hurricanes and killer bees, zombie Lincoln and cheese heads?!

Okay, so some of these things are made up, or are they....

A Guy Dressed Up Like The Swedish Chef

(YouTube Link)

Little Swedish Chef shaped puppets are cute, a guy dressed up to look like the Swedish Chef is downright terrifying!

On paper this costume seems like a good idea, so what makes it so creepy?

Maybe it's the size of the guy, which makes his version of the Chef seem rather imposing.

Maybe it's the fact that his mouth isn't moving, which tends to make people look a bit psycho.

Or maybe, just maybe, it's the blood soaked apron he's wearing, indicating that this Swedish Chef doesn't believe in small talk. *gulp*

Meet Michigan J. Headcrab

(YouTube Link)

Things have gotten a lot stranger since we last checked in on the world of Half-Life, and either the "fumes" are getting to us or the Headcrabs have learned to sing and dance and are now more concerned with entertaining humans than eating them!

The Michigan J. Protocol was created by Zachariah Scott, with the help of a few friends, and this is why:

I normally avoid doing a video like this, but the demand was too damn high!

Public demand for a dancing headcrab...who knew?!

Zombie Makeup Tutorial Inspired By Left 4 Dead

(YouTube Link)

It's clear from watching this video that the guy featured (Petrilude) loves the Left 4 Dead video game series and knows his way around the makeup aisle.

In this informative video he'll teach you how to apply an extremely effective makeup that makes you look like one of the Infected, without all that icky death and eating of human flesh.

Be forewarned- this is one intense tutorial, and probably best left to those who have at least a little experience applying makeup.
