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.

So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of Halloween village houses. Enjoy if you dare.

The Creepy, Crawly World of Scary Halloween Craft Projects (Fifth Edition)

7e2a5fe2acf2b4c9c84e836e38653570

During October, it’s not unusual for people to make their homes into a haunted house. Fortunately,  plenty of retail stores have been willing to oblige since September. There’s even a store called Spirit Halloween, which is having its biggest season right now. After all, Halloween is a major cash cow holiday since it has so many fans. After all, unlike a lot of big holidays,you don’t have any obligation to spend Halloween with your family. Unless your children require adult supervision. Anyway, while most people prefer to buy their Halloween decorations, others may make their own. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of spooky Halloween crafts. Enjoy.

624e38adf59a976c775d02679dab9c1c

Well, it’s an umbrella with legs. And she wore a green tulle slip, too.

31. Wonder what orange substance is in this jar.

43b5f968126ab6dcf5331ff9dcbc4d1b

Seems like the jar’s painted. Yet, the cameo is of a skeleton lady.

34. These ghosts travel all in a line.

36. Hope these wooden ghosts don’t scare you.

53f9fe203777193481a1562aa0632bbe

Actually they seem rather friendly. But then again, they might just be putting it on to lure you into their clutches.

37.  Black cat lights make any room creepy.

54eb52f7a929d_-_crafts-cat-face-garland-1014-xln

33a563ef7ca014a1aa19a81eeda0b2f4

I don’t think it’s meant for wearing though. Still, has a cobweb on the brim.

45. These candy trees are infested.

88fb9e654e041bc2fd2172406bbeb061

You don’t see as many candy decor on Halloween as you do on Christmas. Save the case for candy corn but that’s just sugar wax not fit for human consumption.

46. Hope these glowing hands don’t snatch you during the night.

99ca684f143fcfae3b51a67d358f8334

Not sure what these are supposed to be made of. Butt seeing floating and glowing hands around will scare the crap out of me.

49. Don’t drink from a bottle under wraps.

230dcba7e97111211b6b45af8347cd93

50. A steampunk pumpkin can use a few nuts and bolts.

281d21c7ea150cfeffc83fc45ed92618

62. This guy’s torch comes solar powered.

908be9e74cfc840aaa4f69a000dbd524

I’m sure this little guy’s light is scarier at night. But at least his methods are sustainable.

63. Sometimes a wine bottle is all you need.

0914d8c35fcb17468999a45fa47cff4e

This person took a green one and made a witch out of it. And they only had to paint the top green for the hat.

64. Nobody can resist a witch in a candy dress.

2395eac5a51f1e56d0301f4269290330

She’s even green with red hair. Though she’s more cute than scary.

65. Want some spiders on your china?

3240ae119a4a98cc86ac3560c04eff04

Well, the spiders are painted on the plates. Guaranteed to scare guests when hung on the wall.

66. Seems like we have a few monsters lurking in the bushes.

3862c985007a2c3a6c5958ffe1e55dc4

Then again, maybe the bushes have eyes. Or someone just stuck eyes on them.

67. This house really has a severe rat problem.

5911b6d86ac958a07f28f76dc30c15bc

Okay, they’re just rat silhouettes. So don’t call the exterminator just yet.

68. Milk bottle candle holders should always come a bit bloody.

Man, the red paint looks like it’s oozing from the top. Perfect for any Halloween party.

72. Keep your things safe in this blinged out coffin box.

279624b81a92cbc909d2469294a2b5c8

73. Sometimes a simple metal cauldron is all you need.

295871c6b31fe646830283bdac1a6180

Wonder if they use cauldrons like this at Hogwarts. There’s even a fake fire underneath.

654744c00a406d8b2922dda4220b74ff

75. I’m sure you don’t want to be caged alongside a rat.

841066a5dc2046efc292717a1a047867

Well, they’re skeletons in cages. The skeleton rat even has cheese to eat.

76. You’ll find a few birds on this bonsai tree.

862967f46be417b9dbfefe6f82708520

afdd7f3518c341fce1595a536d0736d1

The Wonderful World of Scarecrows (Fifth Edition)

untitled2

Sorry that I haven’t done any new posts for three weeks. Since I’ve been working on a project that took me about four weeks to complete. Anyway, given that fall’s coming up, you’re bound to see scarecrows everywhere. After all, fall is usually a time of harvest. Despite that critters can get into the crops all year long. Still, scarecrows were originally erected to scare them off at a time when most pesticides didn’t exist.  Nonetheless, they’re usually made out of straw, wooden stakes, and old clothes. Yet, many communities can also hold scarecrow contests showing all the unique straw figures out there. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of unique scarecrows. Enjoy.

  1. These scarecrows will check your speed.
_102688221_capture11

Don’t worry, you’re good. But if you go like a race car driver, they will mark you down and give you a ticket.

2. Don’t mind these three old men.

0a3dc153c9b7ec3e746250aa5014fddd

They’re just hanging around in their suits. A couple even read the paper.

3. It’s always fun and games with the Cat in the Hat.

0bf4389e7682f7156f59ca17fe13427b

Though don’t see the Mike Myers adaptation. Still, this is a fair rendition for a scarecrow festival. Sure will make Dr. Seuss proud.

4.  The giant crow’s got the last laugh.

1revenge1-web

You can see this crow’s made out of trash bags. And yes, I think it could scare off any critters. Since it’s a giant freaking bird.

5. This scary scarecrow has a sensitive side.

2e2d263c56ba99d31062047c331f0e03

Sure, he might kill a bunch of misbehaving teenagers on a dark night. But he likes hanging out with the birds.

6. You won’t get anywhere rowing on dry land.

5aabaf2a10d5cf83e4a0cb449fd70775

Well, they’re supposed to be fishing. Still, like their boat name Crow-2.

7. These old folks get by on wheelbarrow.

6c43485146ef13fc87973abc3803bcf0

Since they’re homeless and their car’s been repossessed. Still, these are delightful.

8. Bet you’ve never met the scarecrow Boy Who Lived.

10-19-2017-6-36-36-AM-5534722

I’ve put a Harry Potter scarecrow before. Yet, this one at least gives him darker hair.

9.  They’re off to see the wizard. The wonderful Wizard of Oz.

54bda1a30953509272358d0ebfa69493

Wizard of Oz seems to be a common motif in scarecrow festivals. Maybe it’s the Scarecrow. This display includes the Wicked Witch of the West though.

10. Uncle Sam does it the American way.

59d55bee79b52.image

Yet, he somehow decided to shave before getting atop of his high horse. Still, please don’t mention anything about Cheeto Fascist.

11. This scarecrow is practically perfect in every way.

4-Renee-Simon

Since she’s Mary Poppins, y’all. And I don’t mean Yondo from Guardians of the Galaxy either.

12. Curious George always drives the Man in the Yellow Hat crazy.

59e3f70cd0282.image

Since he’s a curious little monkey who shouldn’t be kept as a pet. No wonder he starts a lot of trouble.

13. This scarecrow girl has a green thumb.

074e20f0eb0ca59e7bc93ec586f7225a

She always loves to water her plants. Yet, fall is when these flowers usually wither and die.

14. This guy’s all ready to rake.

403ef0cd2941e5190f752ca9a92f8186

Though raking is always a chore. But that doesn’t stop him from being excited about it.

15. He’s all prepared for the wharf.

562eb7bbd804e.image

After all, he wears his raincoat and galoshes. So he’s all set for the fishing boat.

16. Behold, the mad tangerine commissar himself.

1024px-Chillerton_&_Gatcombe_Scarecrow_Festival_2017_27

Here he stands on a podium to spew some disparaging remarks about protestors, minorities, the news media, the law enforcement agencies investigating him, political enemies, and immigrants. The Cheeto-Fascist wreaks devastation onto America he certainly won’t make great again. Because he’s a sociopath.

17. “Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.

2017_scarecrows_02

Funny how they use an old vacuum cleaner as R2-D2. Though I think he’s supposed to be bigger. Like enough for a dwarf to fit inside him.

18. Wonder Woman always knows how to summon her Lasso of Truth.

2017_scarecrows_08

Here she stands with her butterfly mask. Wait, I don’t remember her wearing such a thing.

21. Have you tried apple boarding?

080917-100-1-710x534

Like boarding over a box of apples like this guy. Yeah, you’ve probably never heard of it before.

22. Now here’s a real straw dog.

87050a4e232296e0f0be5bccd94a0453

Well, it’s covered in burlap. But the straw’s inside. Still, better not throw a bone at it.

23. You’d call this scarecrow a real jack in the box.

20170915_134323-thumb600x450

He’s between corn and sunflowers. Has nothing to do with the restaurant, however.

24. You’d think this lady was crazy about her cats.

20180917-101605-1

Yes, they have crazy cat lady scarecrows, too. The cats seem to be plush though.

25. This chef juggles so many ingredients.

27. This frog loves to hang out near the pond.

He’s a frog prince who will find your ball if you drop it in a well. So if you kiss or have sex with him, he’ll turn human again.

28. This scarecrow’s here to fix your power.

211704470.jpg.gallery

He knows how to connect the circuits. Though if he gets an electric shock, he burns.

29. These American farmers are just like apple pie.

7953148162b2ee215412bfc2a2306e64

Yes, it’s another rendition of American Gothic. Yet, these two don’t have pumpkin heads. There’s also a cow.

30. Seems like you’re in a Mexican restaurant in November.

1535124583128

The three mariachis wear Dia de los Muertos masks. The waiter presents a bottle of tequila.

31. You might want to stay way from this large crow.

abdfd480f0c490697dca3030542a69b5

Yes, this crow is huge and scary. So it’ll naturally make a great Halloween decoration.

32. Feel free to go for a ride?

ac8cd202a0e8060eaf98ebc16f58d13c

This scarecrow rides on a bike. Though I’m not sure if he’s Tour de France material.

33. The potted man tends his garden.

b96c7bdb396754812ffb51a966d343f5

He’s made from flower pots. Here he tills the land for planting.

34. Behold, the Red Queen.

b581c0df3cee2cfe8c345b46b24a9506

35. Hope you can respect this policeman.

b980f4a83590437abc8bdf708e999484

He stands next to an American flag wreath. But remember, he’s carrying a pair of handcuffs on him.

36. This scarecrow is an absolute genius.

Belbroughton-Scarecrows-Birmingham-Events-Essential-Marketer20150927-C5D_7879-700x467

He’s supposed to be Albert Einstein. You see, scarecrows have brains after all.

37. Hope this monster doesn’t scare your child.

c0627e8ba8605edd915fe61c37ad20fb

He’s actually Sully from Monsters Inc. Sure he scares children. But outside his work, he’s sweet guy. Just ask Boo.

38. This large straw dragon will scare the crows away.

cambriascarecrowsdragon29392

Some Game of Thrones fans must have too much time on their hands. Still, that’s excellent work on this scarecrow.

39. An old Scottish soldier looks upon the poppy fields of France.

DSCN0740JPG-e1528230241901

He’s Scottish since he’s wearing a kilt. And yes, he’s a World War I veteran.

40. I now pronounce you Mr. and Mrs. Potatohead.

Durrow-Scarecrow-2017-1080x675

These two are made from haybales and shoes. And I’m not telling you what “mashed” means in potato talk. Since it’s not something you’d want your kids to know about.

41. Anyone would adore this scarecrow family.

As with the NFL posts, I decided not to do a college athletic merchandise blog this year. After all, the more you do, the less crazy NCAA products you can find.

0014135_nfl-football-team-fabric-4-ounce-scrap-bag_500

Though I usually follow an NFL costume post with strange NFL merchandise, I decided to just skip to crafts. While there’s a lot of crazy NFL merchandise out there, it’s increasingly difficult to find unique items with NFL logos. Not to mention, I kind of prefer doing craft stuff anyway. Anyway, while many NFL fans like to get their gear at overpriced NFL stores, some might prefer to make their own. After all, you’ll find crafters in every fandom. Sports fans are sometimes no different. Many might use crafts for decorations like a team wreath for their front door. Some might go for outdoor decoration and other items.
