Dogs and cats aren't the only animals that like to get into the Halloween spirit, even these budgies enjoy doing some tricks for a treat or two.

They're members of the group Feathered Friends of the Great Pumpkin, and they always enjoy taking a group shot with a few of their pumpkin pals!

Halloween Costumes From Yesteryear

The times may be a-changin', but the Halloween fun of wearing costumes stays relatively the same.

Join us as we take a tour of Halloween costumes and sugar laced revelry from the last hundred years or so.

You'll laugh, you'll cringe and you'll soon find out that things don't change much when it comes to dressing up for Halloween!

Even in 1917 dressing in drag was a popular costume choice for Halloween, and since this was a year found smack dab in the middle of World War I dressing in military gear was also a popular choice.

However, the combination of drag and olive drab makes this one group you wouldn't want to run into while you're on shore leave.

A little bunny girl captured on film way back in 1922 in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia, and she looks like she's ready to have a hopping good time out on the town.

It's nice to see that DIY Halloween fashion hasn't changed much in the last 90 years.

The band of gypsys shown here look like they're up to no good, and once again they prove that Halloween can be a real drag!

I hope these ne'er-do-wells don't drag their younger siblings down with them, or else 1930 is going to be the beginning of their careers as petty criminals...

A public school teacher from Waterdown, Ontario Canada decided to show her love of Halloween by wearing this festive ensemble- jester style hat, mask, striped scarf with pumpkin medallion and striped skirt to match.

My, don't you look like the cat's meow Miss Crabapple!

Here's a picture from 1946 of a boy wearing what is described as a "cockney style outfit", which looks a bit disco biker to me.

And is that a real live bird on his shoulder? This kid's got a lot of moxy, I tell ya what...

Art-o-Mat- A Cigarette Machine Converted To Sell Art

Once upon a time you dropped your money in the slot and pulled for a pack of cigarettes, now these renovated cig machines dole out miniature works of art.

They've been converted by Clark Whittington, of Artists-In-Cellophane out of North Carolina, since 1997, and I hope one makes its way to one of my neighborhood bars!

The "smoke 'em if you got 'em" days may be long gone, but these diner and barroom fixtures live on.

Hyperrealistic Ball Point Pen Drawings

This stunning portrait of a fiery redheaded girl is by Samuel Silva, an illustrator who really knows his way around a ball point pen!

Samuel's use of color elevates his works above the standard realistic portraits rendered in black ink, and adds to the realism and warmth of each piece.

Video Of A Flying Bike In Action

(YouTube Link)

This video shows a flying (hovering, really) bike created by Aerofex floating across the desert floor, proving that our Star Wars landspeeder/speeder bike dreams will soon be coming true.

It can go as fast as 30 mph, and as high as 15 feet off the ground, and once they've supplied the military Aerofex is going to release these hoverbikes for sale to the public.

Aside from all the dust this thing kicks up it looks like a fun ride!

Ghostbusters Theme Song Played On Eight Floppy Drives

(YouTube Link)

Retro computer junk is all the rage in the world of geeky electronic music, so when I saw a video posted by MrSolidSnake745 in which the Ghostbusters theme song is played by eight floppy drives I thought "why not?"

Now that I've watched the video I know what the buzz is about- this is the best floppy drive rendition I've ever heard, and that's saying a lot considering how many of these silly floppy styled videos are on the interwebs!

Portraits Of Musicians Made From CDs

Why throw all those old, scratched CDs away when you can make awesome works of art with them!

This detailed portrait of Bob Marley was created by Mirco Pagano and Moreno De Turco, and it's made out of discarded Bob Marley CDs that were no longer jammin'.

Hit the link and check out the rest of the rock icons rendered as CD sculptures, it's better than using them as coasters!

Artist Andrew Wilson created this colorful and incredibly detailed illustration dedicated to the hit movies that came out in 1988, appropirately enough for the Gallery 1988's show called Crazy 4 Cult 6.

A lot of great movies came out in 1988, which one of the flicks pictured above is your favorite?

This creative pumpkin carving contest participant cut down on the carving time in favor of putting together this tongue-in-cheek art installation.

Now where did my wrench go?

Robot Heads Made From Salvaged Junk

Artist and robot lover Tal Avitzur doesn't believe in throwing away leftover metal junk- because he'd rather make cool robot heads out of it all!

He calls these wall mounted robot heads Talbotics, and they would look really cool adorning the wall of a scifi themed trophy room.

The Odd Life Of Timothy Green Ruined Their Day

(YouTube Link)

(Spoiler Alert-If you really wanna see Timothy Green spoiler-free, watch this hilarious video after you see the movie)

Somebody told these kids that The Odd Life Of Timothy Green is the "feel good movie of the summer", so they begged their parents to take them.

Now their young lives are ruined and there's nothing their parents, Disney or anybody else can do about it!

What Lies Beneath The Metal Skin Of Pixar's Cars

These fun Pixar's Cars themed internal anatomy illustrations are by Jake Parker, and I think they just made the whole talking car thing a bit creepier.

Jake's illustrations have come a long way from their humble beginnings back in 2008 (link below), and I hope he creates one of these cool diagram for every character.

One question comes to mind when I look at these drawings- do the dealerships scoop the brains out of the vehicles before they sell them, or is that procedure dealt with at the factory?

Creepy Collage Mask Is Super Creepy

Photo: Huberton/Flickr

Flickr user Huberton stumbled upon the awesome power this collage mask bestows upon you- it makes people want to avoid talking to you by any means!

He made the mask out of face bits from GQ magazine, but I guess the handsome male model factor goes out the window when you start combining bits of different faces!

Photo: Randy Haaga/Flickr

This neat trick-or-treater inspired graffiti mural was spotted by Randy Haaga and son in Houston, Texas.

The costumed kids in the painting look pretty scary, and the little guy in the picture looks like he's truly terrified...but he's not!

He actually likes the painting, and wishes he could join in on the Halloween fun!

The Halloween Snowman Cometh

If you're lucky enough to live where there's snow falling in October, then you can make your own scary snowman just like James Insogna of Boulder, Colorado did for Halloween last year.

Creating gruesome decorations out of snow can be fun, but warn your kids about the danger of eating colored snow!

I'm so excited about Halloween that I decided to put my pumpkin out early, and this is what happened to poor old Jack.

Take it from me: don't go putting your pumpkins out too early, or you'll be wishing you hadn't come Halloween night!

Turning Life Into A Playable Video Game

(Vimeo Link)

Daniel Disselkoen had a really interesting concept in mind while working on his graduation project "Remake Reality"- what if life could be more like a video game?

His response is Man-eater, a fun little art installation/inspiration for imaginative tram riders that encourages passengers to play along.

You close one eye and imagine that little Man-eater in the window gobbling up pedestrians as you ride the tram across town.

Doesn't that sound like a fun way to pass the time on public transportation?

A Silent Hill Version Of SpongeBob SquarePants

This is what SpongeBob SquarePants would look like if he was born and raised in the madness of Silent Hill, instead of the calm waters of Bikini Bottom.

He's terrifying to behold, but I'm pretty sure he didn't get his job flipping burgers because of his good looks and customer service skills.

Street Jewelry Installations By Liesbet Bussche

Liesbet Bussche is a street artist who wants to add a bit of class, and proper jewelry accents, to all that ugly junk hanging around the city streets.

She adds her whimsical touches, like earring backs, half heart pendants and glowing chains, to the stuff on the side of the road, and the city gains about a hundred style points overnight.

Water Light Graffiti

(Vimeo Link)

This water activated LED light installation was created by Antonin Fourneau, and it looks like it would be fun to mess around with on a hot summer day!

The LED are "illuminated by the contact of water. You can use a paintbrush, a water atomizer, your fingers or anything damp to sketch a brightness message or just to draw."

Xenomorph Tyrannosaurus Made Out Of LEGO

This is the dreaded LegoXenoTyranno, but you can call him Alien Rex. 

A crafty builder named Retinence drew inspiration from a concept design by nebezial and created this impressive looking LEGO sculpture, complete with all sorts of pokey things and sharp bits.

It's the scariest critter I've ever seen rendered in LEGO, and kinda looks like a badass version of Grimlock from Transformers.

A Musical Performance On The New York Subway

(Vimeo Link)

I'm pretty sure this New York subway performance by the Stay Human band was well rehearsed, mainly because of the perfect camera angles and posed players, but that doesn't make it any less fun to watch!

Dig on some soulful subway grooves, played by some dapper fellows who always travel in style and like to get a few licks in on their way to the gig.

Lenticular LEGO Portrait Of Batman And Joker

This awesome piece of optical LEGO art was created by Arthur Gugick, a man who had a vision of Batman and the Joker on the same piece of LEGO art then made his vision come true.

Tilt it one way-you've got the Caped Crusader, tilt it the other way you've got Mr. Joker in all his glory.

Arthur's superheroic work has added another angle to the world of LEGO art!

So peruse these drawings and imagine what could have been in the world of dreams...
