Scary and Eerily Adorable DIY Halloween Costume Inspirations (Fifth Edition)

WIN_20191028_16_58_24_Pro

Here I’m dressed in a sexy witch costume from stuff I found at Goodwill. I was supposed to wear it for a party. However, due to that fucking piece of shit Donald Trump’s visit to a natural gas conference, it was postponed to next week. But since I have to work, I couldn’t go. So now I’m just wearing it for the blog.

I know it’s quite late for costumes since some places already have had their trick-or-treating days. But since it’s usually among the last of my Halloween posts, I go ahead with it, anyway. Nonetheless, while costume stores like Spirit Halloween are filled with any costume your heart desires, some people prefer to make their own. And there are plenty Internet guides to do that. Hell, Goodwill even encourages it. After all, I did this costume above. Though I could only use it for this blog post. Party City also does as well. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of Halloween DIY costumes to inspire you. Enjoy.

1f946fa84137df85775134ac2bbf50d8

Okay, I don’t want to go in there. For all I know they could be cooking some of Hannibal Lecter’s best known recipes.

5. We all have our bad hair days.

2c8c4fe66e5685a10a1d30253c82983b

Yet, she could use a full-on makeover. Then again, witches don’t care much about their looks, anyway.

6. Even a ghostly skeleton seeks to pick up chicks.

6ca9534ada2d387dfe6b5d8623d4f629

I’m sure this version of Ghost doesn’t contain the iconic pottery wheel scene. In fact, I don’t think they’ll be making love to “Unchained Melody” anytime soon either.

7. You’d think this lady was batty.

7ede295f5bc076ce95d99de4cfeb302f

Yes, she’s in a sexy bat costume. But her dress doesn’t make much sense to me, save for fanservice.

8. Perhaps buying your costume isn’t as great as it seems.

16

Yeah, the masks look kind creep thanks to black and white photography. Still, the one with the leopard print doesn’t seem to have a face.

9. Want to dress as a sexy ghost? Just put a white bag on your head.

370

You could never pull this kind of costume in PA. Mainly because the weather’s under 50 degrees by this point.

10. May I present to you the 19th century version of the Village People.

742e0ff915b17ff02b42493818380e98

As you can see, they’re not exactly a lively bunch. In fact, they seem more likely to kill you in your sleep.

11. What a couple of babies.

33360e2a302dc923b36a3da2a6ca715a--creepy-vintage-vintage-halloween

Okay, these two look too big to be babies. Yet, their masks can just scare the living shit out of you.

12. You might fly with these Peter Pan costumes.

092519_vintage-disney-halloween-roundup-0-780x440-1569447014

These are actually really terrifying. And it really says a lot since Peter Pan is an incredibly creepy movie.

13. Here you see Spiderman and Batman hang out with Colonel Sanders.

slide_255991_1627296_free

What a way to show a good example to kids, superheroes. Of course, masked vigilantism doesn’t help either.

14. How about you hang near the car?

84025916

That duck mask is frightening. Then again, the chicken mask may even be scarier.

15. Hope the trick-or-treaters can make themselves comfortable.

285050908_ced3a05e9b_o

Okay, those vintage costumes are actually scarier in color. Even in regards to Princess Aurora, Casper, and Snoopy.

16. These kids are just resting on the grass.

412286099_o1-600x332

These masks are incredibly terrifying. Don’t look now, but I think these kids are devising ways to kill neighbors who don’t give them candy.

17. Have fun trick-or-treating, kids.

2940565506_6d38cbca8e_b

Apparently, someone managed to make Spiderman and the Lone Ranger scary. While the Wolf man seems kind of lame.

18. That’s an odd looking giraffe.

455708056018727728

Since the giraffe is made out of paper. Still, wonder how the girl can see in it.

19. Beware of the chicken boy.

b49cea7f23171477fcd4feeb7dd9d9d6

I don’t know why the kid just stick around transfixed on the chicken. When the girl should be running away screaming for her dear life.

20. These two are just walking the street on their Halloween haunt.

b79b282cadea6a1cfdd629749c78a02a

The witch seems like she’s wearing Groucho Marx glasses without the mustache. But it should be the ghost that really scares us.

21. You might want to get away from the monster behind you.

b657d599790422dd94e880663dbb139c--halloween-photos-vintage-halloween

That’s Frankenstein’s monster attacking that boy. And I’m sure the boy might need another pair of pants.

22. Sorry to crash a medieval plague doctors meeting.

c1fae1c9bb70b8f295bc90277ee41e94

Since they’re all wearing bird masks and cloaks. Still, if it was the 1300s, we’d wonder how many of them will be left next year.

23. You’d think this is an odd-looking bird.

cardboard1

Well, it’s a cardboard costume. But it kind of looks eerie in black and white photography.

24. Beware of the little red devil.

devilmaskk

I’m sure this kid is all right. But the costume makes him seem like a little terror out of hell.

25. A mother sits with her strangely dressed children.

gallery-1508177568-gettyimages-550151771

Two of them are supposed to be dwarfs, I think. One’s a cowboy. And one’s the Monopoly Man. But all seem rather dead inside.

26. This woman just wears a dress, mask, and cone hat.

girl-in-a-halloween-costume-in-1928-ontario-canada-414x640

Wearing that, you’d think she was on her way to a cult meeting. But she has a pumpkin on her dress.

27. These four just hang around the front door.

Creepy-vintage-halloween-costumes-5

But look at their masks and you don’t want them in your house. Seriously, they make Freddy Krueger look like a character on Sesame Street.

28. You wouldn’t want to run into this little clown at night.

halloween-costumes3

Wonder if this is a childhood photo of Pennywise the Clown. I mean he had to be a child somehow.

29. Here a ghost emerges from the bushes.

halloween-costumes22

Let’s hope he didn’t make it from some Klan robe. Because they were a thing back in the Gilded Age and 1920s.

30. This doesn’t seem like a fun Halloween party.

Vintage_40ccb2_6430304

Consists of a scary clown and two very offensive stereotypes. For God’s sake it was the early 1900s. Times were really racist.

31. Well, this seems like a strange horse race.

il_570xN.869778560_szvv

Yes, you see people sharing horse costumes. One guy has very little legs like Lord Farquad.

32. Don’t hitch a ride with these masked men.

original

Since they’ll take you to an undisclosed location. Then they’ll kill you and rip you to pieces.

33. Who knows what this clown will do to these two women.

Scary-Vintage-Clown-Halloween-Costume

Yeah, I get that he’s wearing a tall hat. But I think after this picture was taken, the two women were never seen again.

34. The skull person is within the living room.

scary-vintage-halloween-creepy-costumes-114-57fc8e918e308__605

Indeed, they’re not scaring anyone. But in time, they will chase teenagers with a knife once it gets dark.

35. Each trick-or-treater shall receive a large pumpkin bag.

slide_255991_1627584_free

The devil and Raggedy Ann masks will haunt your dreams. The cat, not so much.

36. Sometimes a white mask is all you need.

Spooky_Styles_of_Halloween_Costumes_from_a_Century_Ago_(1)

She’s even on roller skates. That means she can go after you with a knife faster. Except on the stairs.

37. Are those kids or ventriloquist dummies?

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween17

Well, they could be kids wearing masks. Yet, they don’t really seem very lifelike to me. Something’s off here.

38. The light’s quite misty, isn’t it?

stuffyoushouldknow-14-2013-09-vintage-halloween55

One of the revelers reminds me of an undead muppet. Another has a rather creepy clown face.

39. Apparently, someone’s fallen into a creepy cult ritual.

tumblr_nebmpwvXFe1rhhnauo1_500

These women wear dresses with markings on them. But they must dance around two virgins before they sacrifice them to their blood hungry god.

40. A witch stands with her cat.

untitled1

She seems rather lonely. Mostly because everyone’s frightened of her. And her cat’s plush, I think.

41. These two seem like a rather odd couple.

untitled3

One wears a mask with make while looking dashing in a top hat and coat. The other wears a mask and a dress.

42. Here’s a friendly guy you’d meet in the park.

Vintage_9ba841_6430304

Kind of reminds me of the guy kicked off The Muppet Show. Since he often gave kids candy from his windowless van. Or so I heard.

43. Care to see the clown in the corner?

Vintage_54b346_6430304

On second thought, I’ll pass on that one. Don’t want to be found near the river with an ax in my back.

44. Don’t you ever refuse to give these kids candy.

Vintage_c54189_6430304

Because if you do, they will kill you. Even if you honestly ran out, they will still slay you. So please have candy ready for them.

45. Sandra finds romance on Planet of the Apes.

vintage-halloween-7-850x633

“Come to me, you damn dirty ape. Send me to your monkey bar sex dungeon.”

46. Don’t you dare cross this masked maid.

vintage-halloween-630x387

Mess with her and she’ll make sure you pay with your life. And she’ll make you pay.

47. You might enjoy this jolly clown.

Vintage-halloween-costume

Okay, this clown is terrifying. Avoid him like the plague if you value your life.

48.  You’d swear you’ve seen these trick-or-treaters from space.

Vintage-Halloween-Costume1-630x435

These costumes are quite frightening. Yet, the astronaut has to wear a rocket shaped mask for some reason.

49. “Come and play with us, Danny.”

vintage-halloween-costumes16

Those princess masks are guaranteed to give you nightmares. Will certainly haunt your dreams.

50. Perhaps you might enjoy a couple of sisters.

vintage-halloween-costumes-19

One doesn’t pretend not to care. The other’s thinking about skinning the neighbor’s cat.

51. Make sure your stick matches your masks.

vintage-halloween-costumes-1930s-7

Though each one is just as scary. And the kids in the back certainly know it.

52. Looks like the Turnip ghost caused some scares.

wp-content2Fuploads2F20142F102FHalloween-costumes-1.jpg2Foriginal

The woman is freaking out. The guy is splayed on the floor. Wonder if this is some horror cosplay scene.

53. Just because you’re a woman doesn’t mean you can’t be Batman.

Z0SQXrk

Well, she’s an early incarnation of Batwoman. But what am I kidding? Batman wasn’t around yet.

54. Well, we’ve got a couple of lone rangers.

zorro-lone-ranger-1950s-halloween-costumes

Actually, one’s supposed to be Zorro. But they will strike if not given candy for trick-or-treating.

55. “Won’t you come and spoon with me?”

creepy-vintage-halloween-costumes-spoon

Oh, hell no. For God’s sake I’m not that desperate for cuddles.

56.  “I’m just a little school girl.”

creepy-vintage-halloween-costumes-hair

I don’t know about you. But that’s a dude who looks like a lady to me. Possible ancestor of Steve Tyler from Aerosmith.

57. “Get off my lawn, you brats!”

creepy-vintage-halloween-costumes-man

For if you don’t, he’ll run you down and cut you up in his basement. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

58. Watch out for the locker room ghosts.

creepy-vintage-halloween-costumes-bags

Of course, they probably didn’t have the time and resources for a full sheet. So they used pillow cases instead. One even has a black bag.

59. “I shall call him, Mini Me.”

creepy-vintage-halloween-costumes-boys

These two wear the same cone black hats. The smaller boy is pure evil.

60. I give you, the Elephant Man.

creepy-vintage-halloween-costumes-elephant-man

Okay, that’s kind of insensitive. Joseph Merrick deserves more dignity than that. Then again, he probably doesn’t know anything about Merrick.

61. Send in the big clowns.

creepy-vintage-halloween-costumes-large-men

On second thought, do clowns really need to be inflated. That just makes them scarier.

62. “Are you comfortable, madam?”

creepy-vintage-halloween-costumes-mouse

This mouse seems rather hospitable to that girl. Don’t really want to what kind of relationship they have.

63. “Let’s just watch that house burn.”

creepy-vintage-halloween-costumes-overexposure

These masks are so terrifying even if they’re supposed to be dolls and clowns. And I’m sure they just set a house on fire.

64. Clown or space alien? You decide.

creepy-vintage-halloween-costumes-tall

Actually, she’s probably dressed like a clown. But her tall hat totally seems like it’s from another planet.

65. These two always stick together.

creepy-vintage-halloween-costumes-twins

Mostly because they’re dressed as co-join twins. They do a lot together, including murder.

66. “Want to join us at the farm?”

90

They’re all decked in their pajamas like they’re having a slumber party. Though I’ll pass on this one.

67. This black cat lingers in the alley.

901

Sure they may look scary. But the 2019 trailer to Cats just makes it look tame in comparison.

68. Hello boys and girls, it’s Beppo the clown.

s-l400

For God’s sake, kill this infernal creature with fire. Before he kills somebody or gets in a daycare center.

69. Don’t want to run into these monsters even on a good day.

5380fadd8d3aea945607828307880306

They’re just kids in Halloween costumes. But the masks are simply spooky.

70. Don’t mess with these clown ladies.

26-Best-Vintage-Halloween-Costumes-Inspiration24

Mock their circus act and I swear they will rain fire and terror on you. Or they’ll just kill you in your sleep.

71. Skull girl just loves hanging among the flowers.

947e180a78cf67da32a107785603df2f-creepy-halloween-halloween-costumes

Hey, at least she’s not Rhoda from the Bad Seed. She wouldn’t kill anyone for trivial stuff like a penmanship award. But she will if you mess with her.

72. Why so sad, scarecrow?

a04b57335f3b5adba55e25e6ab2f50b9--creepy-vintage-vintage-halloween

Guy looks like a sagging and depressed muppet. And with bad fashion sense.

73. This witch is awfully fond of these little girls.

vintage-halloween-costumes-31

Wonder if that witch is in costume. But she shows eyes of ill intent.

74. Care for some clandestine greenhouse ritual?

be58156ab711a838c386f15f51450b3d

The kids seem like they’re dressed in their pajamas. The mom’s dressed as a witch.

75. Here’s a still from the new Joker movie.

haunted-clown

Well, that might be a little too early. But I’m sure he’ll grow up to be an unstable psychopath nonetheless.

76. Pretty short to have mustaches, don’t you think?

faf9cea126536f89948f9ff3499bffb5

One’s wearing a dress to indicate she’s clearly a girl. But these two seem like they’re silently judging you in those creepy masks.

77. “Here’s Toodles!”

f2923904e5275691c5b66af523164b4f

Seeing that clown hovering over that family sends shivers down my spine. Also, is he holding a gun?

78. “I just came here to pick up a few things like your soul.”

il_570xN.1626451553_srki

I can understand why that girl’s screaming. Still, kind of way too young for this Faustian bargain thing. I think there should be an age of consent for that.

79. Got you 4 little devils in a row.

halloween-costumes-69

They’re even all holding masks. But come midnight, they will wreak havoc on a murder spree.

80. These robots come from another galaxy.

Creepy_48cc17_6071176

But mess with them, they’re bound to exterminate you. They also have great fashion sense.

Gather Round All Ye Lords and Ladies to Marvel at These Magnificent Costumes of the Ye Olde Renaissance Festival (Fifth Edition)

20130831_240

Around my area during weekends in late August and September, the Greater Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival is in town. While touted as a medieval fair with music, feasting, lavish costumes, and entertainment, you might end up losing a ton of your money by the end of the day. And while the jousts may look cool, keep in mind that real jousting in that era can lead to fatalities and serious injuries. After all, King Henry VIII nearly died in a jousting accident that screwed him up for the rest of his life. Whereas a French king was literally killed in one. Nonetheless, given the mishmash outfits, the Renaissance Festival has been a place for many to cosplay. Some dress as fantasy characters from Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones. Some dress in historic costume ranging from medieval to Three Musketeers. While some just put on whatever they want. Since the Renaissance Festival doesn’t care what you wear, as long as you pay.  So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of lavish Renaissance Festival costumes. Enjoy.

  1. Perhaps you might want a more flowing gown.
01b7532572864ac1388a3b70b0ae10d4

Hey, at least you don’t have to wear a corset. Those things can be very tight.

2. A Khal must always have his khaleesi by his side.

1fLoh8z

Which he bought from her brother so he can get an army to storm into Westeros with. He also raped her on their wedding night. But at least he’s played by Aquaman in the show.

3. You may want to dress in purple as a peasant.

2edd579a0685b1104afd04bb0e51dc00

Note that this was highly illegal in Europe during the Renaissance. Since only royalty could wear purple at the time.

4. A fairy should always spread her wings.

059d07874144992d02674bee3496a1c1

This is especially true if she has vibrant butterfly wings. Also, her dress should match them.

5. Feel free to come as your favorite Disney princess.

079

Well, I guess that can work. Though if you come as Snow White, stay away from apples.

6. You’d be a fool to pass by this jester.

295c62ab9145df9de5a790c0fafd105c

To be fair, jesters only played the fool. However, it was one of the few jobs in the Renaissance era where you criticize your boss and get away with it.

7. A sleek black gown may suit you.

824d5dcadc3443f489832283f0c24b79

It’s made out of velvet and has silver shoulders. Just don’t trip on the skirt on your way out.

8. You’ll always stand out wearing bright colors.

920x920

Since nobles usually wear the large, lavish dresses. These women deck ones of green, blue, and pink. The guy wears red.

9. Black can be quite snazzy.

people-with-costumes

Sure they may be dressed for a funeral. But you have to love their hats.

10. These barbarians have come to party.

920x9202

They’re wearing fur, too. One guy doesn’t even wear a shirt. Because at Renaissance Festivals, it’s optional.

11. This big dead cow has room for 2.

1024_ren-fair

You can see how two people operate the cow. The thing might freak you out while passing by.

12. An ornate dress will certainly impress.

4168c727ceb75db2441a88635a71ce46

This black one includes jewels on the bodice. Like the crown and ruff.

13. A fall fairy has flowers on her wings.

9352e6f7de9f095d82a08c3926a6aeed

She also wears a long-nosed half mask. Also, the flowers aren’t real. But you probably knew that.

14. You’d have a hell of a time with these 2.

103118-Column-Joe

Since they come as demons. The guy even wears red armor and horns.

15. Mail can always protect.

409239_112414-ktrk-txrenfest-DSC_0093

Not sure in the woman’s case. Since it only covers her breasts. Talk about metal.

16. Apparently, Freya stops by.

409248_112414-ktrk-txrenfest-DSC_0032

I mean she’s dressed like a Viking. And her wings are really sensational. Still, you don’t want her to call on the Valkyrie.

17. Even fairies would like to have a good time.

20181108-202407-TacynRenaissanceSeamstress2

One wears green and fire. The other wears blue. But she carries her own mug.

18. Couples should always match in pattern.

20181108-202413-TacynRenaissanceSeamstress3

A lot of couples seem to match. Though the woman has a fantastic hat and skirt.

19. It’s not easy wearing green.

ALL 0725 ren fes

Though these two even wear similar hats. However, their daughter just wears a normal outfit.

20. Looks like we have a dragon in our midst.

28056103_10155544963217779_8511137320299572808_n-1549987966-9015

Or at least half of one. Let’s hope they don’t start any fires, shall we?

21. When you realize that your costume isn’t as pimptastic as you thought it would be.

3963723820_57d7a8e97c_b

Though he does wear a fancy black tunic with gold striped pantaloons and a feather hat. Not to mention he wears an awesome necklace, too.

22. Sometimes you have to tie it all up.

afaf42e75ba9b90a586113449713a8f2

Her brown dress seems to be held together through lacing. Even on the skirt and sleeves.

23. These 3 ladies have come for the dead.

All-Hallows

Since they’re in Dia de los Muertos costumes. A couple wear skull makeup and don skull hats.

24. Barbarian tribes women in the vicinity.

Picture1-2

Okay, they’re just here for the beer. Yet, you have to love their furs.

25. You can catch sight of this druid.

Astros-Dude-600x529

26. Always take your sword with you.

b8ada823403a4275888e521bf9a76248

This guy wears a plain brown tunic and pants. Though it won’t help him if the other guy wears armor.

27. These four beauties always go to the tavern together.

banner-employment

They wear fantastic hats in bright colors, too. They also go to the privies together when nature calls.

28. Guess we got a couple of mad hatters.

best-costumes-of-the

They seem to belong to the steampunk crowd. Though both wear top hats.

29. Even a lad must wear a fancy vest.

bv19620

This is a crocheted black vest with gold trim and buttons. But the boy doesn’t seem too happy about it.

30. A purple fairy doesn’t need a fancy skirt.

e80b22aab73a1d645a2bf0e53affada9--renaissance-fairy-renaissance-costume

Her skirt’s a patchwork. Yet, she wears a matching corset and wings nonetheless.

31. A plain gold trimmed dress will always do.

ebc721cd2cc14a41b17e8f3d899cf20e

This is made from velvet. And sure it’s not fancy. But it’s sure expensive.

32. A lady must always carry a bow and arrow.

ef42bcbc3350b7b0b1f1ba9c18082b35

Though some Ren fairs may have a weapons policy. Still, the bow is quite huge.

33. Aren’t these 2 guys a bit too old to be knights?

f2b3602a5f6928d18b54eca23fb4c484

Maybe not since knights were all adult ages. But they’re not in Crusader shape.

34. A lady must have a cape of fine furs.

f115c23080cfae4020115e67496a41e4

Okay, the fur’s probably fake. Yet, it certainly goes well with her lovely black dress and gold tiara.

35. A Viking woman must always be modest.

fd9d67b9afd17a8151731755da3e0062

No horned helmets or boob armor for her. Just a long dress and a belt.

36. This purple fairy sits on a stump.

fdf431462062b37d806be5c098d9f4d2

Well, she’s wearing purple with green tights. Though her wings are rather transparent.

37. Say hello to the Norse Gods.

Heroes

Okay, they don’t look like the ones in the Marvel movies. Yet, at least they know how to dress. Sort of.

38. Wonder where this pairing came from.

IMG_1092_1506998988175_11291015_ver1.0

He’s a medieval knight. She’s an 18th century lady. But will love find a way?

39. Feel free to meet these Disney princesses.

IMG_2231-972x1024

There’s Mulan, Ariel, and Tiana. None of these lived during the Renaissance as far as Disney canon is concerned.

40. These 2 are clad in royal purple splendor.

IMG_3412

Their outfits have gold trim and jewels. Yet, their hats are rather different.

41. Want to help a simple townsman?

img_4687

At least I think it’s a guy. But the capris and sandals indicate otherwise.

42. Behold, a shieldmaiden.

in-progress-the-brightest-photos-of-our-collaboration-with-savra-9

She wears a red dress with green trim. The shield has all kinds of pictures on it.

43. This Scotswoman has all she needs.

LadyMaelindeatthebridge

After all, that’s what belts are for. She’s even got a fan of peacock feathers.

44. This dragon is a gentleman.

Leah-dragon

Yet, he’s dressed like he’s from the 18th century. And he wears antennas.

45. A long sack is essential for the desert.

linen-tunic-labyrinth-1

She carries her own walking stick. Hope she can find water.

46. These pirates have come for the rum.

los-angeles-renaissance-faire-may--large-msg-127404957862

47. Need any feathers in your hair?

MDRennCostumes-57bb27663df78c8763cf070b

These women dress in rather colorful peasant dresses. Like the one in the purple skirt.

48. Why is this Viking so glum?

michigan-renaissance-festival-510f217f2790d21b.png

He’s got a cool helmet and armor. Not to mention he’s got a skull bag. Guess he couldn’t bring his sword.

49. This nun is here to make music.

Michigan-Renaissance-Festival-5040

Though she kind of makes blowing into her flute a habit. That the other nun can’t stand it anymore.

50. We seem to have a couple of fancy pirates.

Pirates

Seems like these two made their costumes from a rug. Yet, they seem to have a rather good time.

51. What the hell are these Puritans doing here?

puritans

After all, don’t they consider fun sinful? Seriously, these people don’t even celebrate Christmas.

52. Queen Liz celebrates a golden occasion.

College Sports Fans Dressed in School Spirit Attire (Fourth Edition)

tumblr_mxaluzUs7N1rsg1e4o1_500

As with my NFL costume post, I decided not to use my own picture to open it this year since photo ops require considerable preparation beforehand. Anyway, while American football fans look forward to their favorite NFL team play, school will soon be in session. And this means college football season will soon begin. In many places in the US, you’ll find people who are more diehard over their college teams than those in the pros. Mostly because they either went to the college or the college in question is closer to where they live. You can see this prevalent in the South, particularly in places like Alabama, Arkansas, and Mississippi. Thus, you’ll probably find plenty of sports fans in ridiculous costumes. So for your reading pleasure I give you another assortment of them. Most of them will be from NCAA Div. I teams. Enjoy.

Though August has no notable holidays, it’s a rather busy month. For one, people usually take their vacations around this time. Second, it’s back to school season, making stores busy given how parents scramble for their kids’ supplies. But August also kicks off the NFL pre-season. And the Steelers’ first pre-season game is on Friday, August 9. Given that I’m not a big sports fan at all, I’ll most likely watch Netflix instead. Nonetheless, given that football is incredibly important where I live, I must do posts to boost my stats since they’ve been recently lagging. Anyway, one of the huge features of sporting events is seeing some fans in their outlandish costumes. Because for them, wearing their team’s jersey isn’t enough. The NFL is no exception.

11. This man’s ready for Packers business.

53d533143eb5d.image

23. This dog is all in for the San Diego Chargers.

9944f7f25ddd1c723d71f335b83b5099

The Anthro World of Furry Costumes (Fourth Edition)

00d114ca37fbc952b584f5b80c3a48b0

Just as the 4th of July dies down over the weekend, the Furries descend onto Pittsburgh for their annual Furfest. Now given that it’s summer, you have to wonder how these people can wear these suits that can weigh as much as 70lbs. And unlike the Disney park costumes, I’m not sure if they contain fans. Nonetheless, these anthropomorphic cosplayers have been a source of endless fascination by many. Though some might resemble humanized versions of their animal, some can come in very bright colors. While some have a sort of mix-and-match critter thing going on. Anyway, for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of furry costumes.

  1. A fox should always show off its furs.
0a6982ebc0dc7a3e7c96cb1e7ba5ac6c

000be618bfa2ecb38001bce71ef2c511

This one is green with horns and a white mane. Also, has hooves on their feet. Kind of a mix between a dog and a satyr.

4. Nothing beats spikes, horns, and scales.
