WIN_20171027_13_07_39_Pro

As a presenter in this year’s Prestigious Film Awards, I present the award for Best Picture. So will it be the Movie Critics Love But Viewers Don’t, The Hit Indie That Should Win But Won’t, The Really Good Film Everyone Likes But Won’t Win, Some Expensive Period Piece That Your Mom Likes, Mediocre Fluff Everyone Seems to Like But You, The Indie Film Nobody Watched, Some War Movie Your Dad Likes, The Artistic Movie Nobody Gets, and Some Expensive Period Piece with Awesome Costumes.

Sure I know I’m a bit late doing a DIY Costume post for this year. But I had a long time trying to decide a costume for myself before settling with Award show presenter. And you can see how I mocked the shit of that construct since I’ve spent some years dissatisfied over Oscar Best Picture Winners. Nevertheless, while buying a Halloween costume at a store might be a quick solution if you need something ready made, the choices might not provide what you have in mind. Particularly if the women’s costumes mostly consist of what a stripper would wear. Though making your own costume might be quite time consuming, but you can always get creative. After all, if you can use stuff at home, the possibilities are endless. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of costumes people have made themselves for Halloween.

  1. A wrap sandwich makes a perfect first Halloween costume for a small baby.

Apparently, this contains bacon, lettuce, and tomato. Like the baby’s little mustache, too.

2. Give a boy a skirt, spear, and cape, and he’ll be ready to join his legion.

Well, at least he’s not a Spartan from 300. On the other hand, Roman soldiers and gladiators didn’t wear T-shirts.

3. The Green Bay Packers have taken the field.

And this boy dressed as the field. Guess he thought wearing a jersey as his favorite player was done to death.

4. Don’t really see how he pull out that rabbit.

Then again, it’s a couple’s costume idea of magician and rabbit. Though at least the woman didn’t dress up as the lovely assistant who gets sawed in half.

5. “So what should I steal today?”

She’s dressed as Carmen San Diego. Sure she may steal the world’s treasures but she taught a generation geography.

6. I’m sure you’ll get a real Hawaiian Punch here.

You see, she’s a hula dancer. He’s a boxer. So that’s how you get Hawaiian Punch. Okay, it’s a pun.

7. You can always recognize Bjork by her swan costume.

Though the Icelandic singer wears all kinds of outlandish outfits. But the swan costume defines her.

8. Seems like this little guy takes eliminating critters seriously.

Actually this is a costume set of an exterminator and a mouse. But you have to like the trap on the wagon.

9. Apparently, it rains wherever this kid goes.

This little girl is a rain cloud. Let’s hope she doesn’t have a thunderstorm this Halloween.

10. This little lady wants you to keep in shape.

Guess she’s supposed to be an aerobics instructor from the 1980s. Also has a little cardboard boom box she uses as a basket.

11. If you loved the 1960s, you might enjoy Sonny and Cher.

Sure they might love each other now. But keep in mind that Sonny wasn’t a very nice guy. And that Cher had a very good reason for dumping his ass.

12. These two seem to be getting on in their golden years.

Okay, they’re not senior citizens. But at least they have a costume you can do within minutes.

13. I don’t think these two are compatible.

If you understand, he’s the 1% who get all the money. She’s the 99% who’s not happy about it.

14. This little girl knows she’s a freaking ray of sunshine.

As you can see, she’s Little Miss Sunshine. Because she has a sun crown and a sun on her dress.

15. Viking families always stay together.

Also they didn’t wear horned helmets. And I guess the baby’s a small dragon.

16. If you like Clash of the Titans, you might want to dress up as Perseus and Medusa.

Unfortunately he’ll be absolutely petrified if he takes a look at her. And if he doesn’t, she’ll lose her head he’ll later use as a weapon.

17. These ladies aren’t shy about cheap wine.

They’re all dressed up as box of wine. Because let’s just say expensive bottled wine is overrated.

18. If you love Twin Peaks, you have to check out this mother and baby costume.

This is the log lady who’s one of the better known characters from that show. And yes, that baby is a log.

19. “I’ll be Bach.”

As in Johann Sebastian Bach, the famous 17th-18th century composer. Or is he supposed to be Sir Isaac Newton who discovered the basic laws of physics? Either way, you have to love the wig made from toilet rolls.

20. Is it somebody’s birthday today?

Well, she’s a 3 tier birthday cake. She’s doused in pink icing with sprinkles all over.

21. How about a nice bubble bath?

She even has a rubber duckie and a shower cap. Also, the bubbles mostly consist of cotton balls.

22. She’s certainly as pretty as a peacock.

Though to be fair, peacocks are guys in the animal world. Nevertheless, love the feather train.

23. Bob Ross debuts his latest masterpiece.

As you see, she’s a picture of a happy little tree. Still, Bob Ross has been dead since the 1990s.

24. This boy is a born Deere.

Well, at least he’s wearing plaid and overalls. Still, love the green thresher.

25. “Steph, you’re the next contestant on The Price Is Right.”

I guess she’ll definitely get that new dinette set. Still, this is a pretty easy costume to do.

26. Hide your pooch when she comes to town.

Still, this is a very convincing Cruella de Vil costume. But if you have 4 legs and a tail, she’ll give you nightmares.

27. For some reason, chicks seem to take to him.

He’s supposed to be a chick magnet. Get it? I mean he has a magnet with chicks on it.

28. Where would kids be without Ms. Frizzle and the Magic School Bus?

This is a couple’s costume. Still, Ms. Frizzle may want her kids to learn science. But safety isn’t her highest priority.

29. You’d almost think this boy was made out of plastic.

If he was smaller, you’d think he’s a real plastic army guy. Wonder how he moves around though.

30. Why play with Play Doh when you can be Play Doh?

And it seems these two won a costume contest. Simple to make yet effective.

31. Check out this iPhone 6.

And yes, he has all the apps. Sure he may not be the latest model. But you’d buy him anyway.

32. Robbing a bank is as easy as taking candy from a baby.

Okay, robbing a bank isn’t easy. But this daddy and baby costume will just steal your heart.

33. You’d certainly flee from this little Jigsaw.

He’s from the popular Saw horror movie franchise. He may be a toddler but he’s menacing on his tricycle.

34. Someone must’ve been through strong winds.

Relax, it’s just a costume. But you have to admire this guy’s windy effort.

35. I’m sure she’s got a pretty head you’d want to mount on your wall.

I know some might see it poor taste. But you have to admire her creativity.

36. Not sure if this little guy is ready for a six pack yet.

This is a mother and baby Jersey Shore. Mother is supposed to be Snookie. Boy is meant to be the Situation, I think.

37. Care for some Pilsbury toaster strudel?

This kid’s dressed in lederhozen. And all for a school Halloween parade.

38. Do you remember the Sony Walkman?

And I suppose his costume is made out of cardboard. Like the headphones though.

You can guess this is a parent and child costume. And yes, the baby is Ellen Ripley from Alien.

40. If you can’t be 007, how about the next best thing?

Yes, he’s a James Bond Nintendo game. Can you get more awesome than that?

41. In a few decades, we’ll laugh at this awkward picture.

You know Awkward Family Photos? This woman is dressed like one and includes the background.

42. Remember Chat Roulette? Apparently, this guy does.

And you can see why it didn’t catch on. Because men on there often exposed themselves.

43. Not sure if you’d call this girl a happy little tree.

She’s even covered with leaves from her head to her shirt. But at least she’s not decked like Stanford’s mascot.

44. Want to enjoy a jolly holiday with Mary?

Here’s Mary Poppins and Bert. If you love proper singing and penguins waiting on you, these are perfect.

He’s supposed to be Forrest Gump when he’s running around the country. Even has the mud smiley face on his shirt.

46. Firefox embraces the world.

Yes, she’s a web browser. Used to use it but don’t anymore since 2015.

47. Want to hear your fortune?

Very convincing costume if you ask me. But I’m sure you won’t see much insight in her crystal ball.

48. Instead of hastagging your Halloween costume, why not dress as one?

At one point, you wouldn’t see much of her. Now she’s everywhere on the Internet.

49. You’d swear it’s raining cats and dogs.

In her case, you can say literally. Like the plushies on her umbrella.

50. If you have problems with aliens, call these guys.

This one just requires a black suit and tie. And you can customize.

51. You wouldn’t believe what this mime has to tell you.

Though you wouldn’t know since mimes are silent. But watch him feel a wall out of thin air.

She’s a Monet by the way. And no, she’s not cheap in the least.

You’ve seen the WWII poster to call women to work in the factories. Today, Rosie’s a feminist icon.

56. Hope she can put on a show for you.

Though she doesn’t resemble any showgirl from Las Vegas. Still, this is a rather creative costume.

57. You’d find it impossible to leave her part of the universe.

She’s basically the solar system. Those styrofoam balls are the planets and the sun. She has the moon on her headband.

58. Does this taco dog come in a hot or soft shell?

Yes, this another dog costume of food. Though the filling and shell sure suit it find.

59. Here is a self-portrait of a true artist.

This kid is a self-portrait of Vincent Van Gogh. Hope he makes an impression on you.

60. Any kid will feel welcome at camp with these two counselors.

Seems these camp counselor costumes don’t require much. Just shorts, shirt, clipboard, sneakers, and headbands.

61. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Smores.

Parents are graham crackers. Kids are chocolate and marshmallow. Wagon is the fire.

62. Someone wants to take this grouch.

Sure it’s Oscar and the garbage person isn’t a character on Sesame Street. But this is adorable.

63. You’d be impressed by these jellyfish.

These two might look graceful. But their stings will hurt like hell and possibly kill you.

She’s movie popcorn by the way. And yes, she’s probably more expensive than the regular stuff.

Not sure how this works. But you have to like how it seems his legs are detached from his chest.

This baby’s dressed as the Dalai Lama. Funny, how the real guy wasn’t much older when he became the Dalai Lama back in the 1930s.

71. Seems like this big game hunter has quite a collection.

Normally I abhor trophy hunting. But this costume idea is simply spectacular.

72. “In an old house in Paris that was covered in vines…”

The redhead one is Madeline by the way. Also, one of them might be a guy.

73. Kids in the 1980s might want to dress up as these Care Bears.

Some of them have their own Care Bear plushies with them. Still, these are fairly easy to do whether you’re by yourself or with a group.

74. Nothing will ever scare this crow.

He just wants to fly, eat dead animals, and avoid cars. Like the beak.

78. Who can be scared of this little werewolf?

Okay, she might be quite fierce. But she’s so adorable, she’s scary.

79. With these ladies, each can fit inside the other.

Okay, maybe not. But since they’re dressed as Russian nesting dolls, they all seem the same.

You can use bottles for the oxygen tanks. But instead of sea treasure, they’ll just bring back candy from trick or treating.

Now this dog is a beanie baby. You see, simple as that.

The wheel is an umbrella while the board is a bag saying “Trick or Treat.” So cute.

The Haunted World of Halloween Village Houses (Third Edition)

4ef7b502898fcd306d1e0f980c15d82f

In the tradition of Christmasification, it’s on to the Halloween village houses. While village houses are more of a Christmas tradition, it wasn’t long in recent years that Halloween had become incredibly popular. So companies who made and sold Christmas village stuff expanded to Halloween with haunted villages. Because why stick to just one holiday? After all, there are some people who love this holiday more than Christmas anyway. Still, while Christmas evokes a winter wonderland, Halloween evokes plenty of haunted houses, cobwebs, graveyards, skeletons, and other spooky stuff. So it’s no wonder that people might prefer a miniature haunted village within their own haunted house. Nevertheless, if you’re in for a fright, enjoy another treasure trove of scary Halloween village houses for your reading pleasure.

80. Apparently, you’ll find this house under a spider infestation.

And it seems like a monster spider attack. If you’re afraid of spiders, you might find this horrifying.

81. A cottage like this is a giant ant’s paradise.

Though would you want to live near giant ants? Definitely not. Because that’s terrifying.

82. If you see snow, you might want to beware of the Yeti.

Though I’m not sure where you’ll find retro style houses in the Himalayas. Though this is quite a creative design.

83. When you see a UFO land, the aliens will emerge.

Never thought I’d see a village UFO crash for Halloween. Though please tell them that you come in peace.

84. Sometimes you can’t go wrong with a flashy purple house.

This one has purple glitter, purple bats, and purple everything. Love it.

85. Old jewelry can create a rather haunted look.

This one has jeweled bordered windows and a large black stone on the door. If you like scary and gaudy stuff, this is for you.

86. For more eerie effect, try some bright green on the windows.

This one is covered with glitter with pumpkins in front. Seems like a place you’d expect the Joker to live in.

87. There’s something ghastly about this abode.

Well, it’s kind of shaped like a ghost. But it’s black with purple windows. Nevertheless, it’s a rather haunted haven.

88. You might want to give some bones about this mobile home.

This one kind of gives me the creeps. Because most people don’t have skeletons outside their houses.

89. You might find something slithering at this frame house.

Apparently, this is basically a snake infestation. But I do like where the chimney is located.

90. There’s something coming from that manhole on the road.

Kind of reminds you of what you’d see in a monster movie. Still, the house seems rather doomed by the looks of it.

91. Perhaps you might want to relax at this autumn cabin.

Sure it may not seem like Halloween. But it kind of has a rather rustic flair.

92. A haunted house can stand out with colorful stripes.

Sure it might have pastel colors. But it’s definitely a Halloween house with graves.

93. Bright colors always make a rather whimsical haunted house.

This one seems rather like a kid friendly craft project. Still, the ghosts are a delight.

94. There are some ghosts who prefer festive accommodations.

This one is made from ceramic. But you have to love trimmings and towers.

95. Nothing can make a house more haunted like Halloween candy.

This one has a rather glittery facade. But you can’t help but trick or treat with this.

96. Bet you find an orange spider on this house.

Well, at least on the top. Still, the black trees on this one are rather imposing.

97. Sometimes a ghost might prefer a glittery home.

It even has some glittery windows and tombstones. Perfect for those who like shiny things.

98. This house seems shaped like a coffin.

Well, in a way. Yet, it has a door in the corner under the word “Boo!”

99. I suppose this is a home to a druggist.

Still, would you want to get any drugs from this place? Probably not.

100. No amazing haunted house should go without a pumpkin

This one is green with black stripes. Still, the pumpkin adds a rather Halloween touch.

 

The Dark Scary World of Vintage Halloween Costumes (Third Edition)

1c818e16b3ee684a227eba4d38a43c95

Whether intended to be scary or cute, many of these vintage Halloween costumes seem rather terrifying for some reason. Perhaps they made costumes differently. Or maybe it’s the photography since black and white can make things look significantly scarier than color. Maybe they were just more creative. But whatever the reason Halloween back then apparently seemed much creepier than today’s equivalents. And if you lived back then, chances are you’d probably wouldn’t want to run into any partiers or trick or treaters. Nevertheless, for your reading pleasure, I give you yet another installment of some really creepy old Halloween costumes to send a shiver up your spine.

  1. You might want to beware of the clowns living in Uncanny Lane.

By the way, do you know Pennywise the Clown from It? Well, these are his parents. Or grandparents. I’m not exactly sure.

2. Perhaps you can be a deer and what the hell is that thing?

Then again, the deer head costume kind of looks a bit creepy as well. But it’s nothing compared to the one kind of resembling a badly designed ghost cat.

3. For a devil costume all you need is a dress and matching horns.

Sure they may not look scary. Yet, the hooked tails kind of look out of place.

4. Think of this classroom scene as Arthur meets Pet Semetary.

Man, those masks are so creepy as hell. Guaranteed to give you nightmares for weeks.

5. Oh, look two trick or treaters.

Okay, you can take all the candy you want! Just go away and don’t kill me!

6. Children always look forward to a Halloween parade.

Might want to flee the neighborhood when they’re around. Unless you have a huge stock of candy.

7. Apparently, Spock goes for purple haired chicks.

Actually that doesn’t look like Spock at all. Besides, couldn’t the parents just use make up and pointed ears? Seems less scary.

8. Please don’t look behind the bushes.

Because these two girls will straight up murder you. Sure they might be playing around. But piss them off, you’ll soon regret it.

9. This boy is quite a skilled bear baiter.

For one, this costume pair makes light of cruelty to animals. Second, that is the most terrifying bear I’ve ever seen. Please don’t sick that thing on me.

10. Be wary around anything with a big head.

After all, the one with the bag was never seen again after this picture was taken. Sure the big headed guy might look silly but avoid if you value you life.

11. Beware of the scary ghouls with flashlights.

Yes, they’re trick or treaters. But give them anything with razor blades and they’ll put you through hell.

12. You’ll surely be endeared with this clown wearing musical cats.

On second thought, those cats are terrifying. If there’s a cat version of Deliverance, I bet any money they’d be in it.

13. On Halloween, best not to piss off this wicked witch.

No, she’s not the kind of witch you’d see on Harry Potter. And if you do anything stupid, she can easily turn you into a toad.

14. “Smile for the camera, children!”

We have idea what happened to the kid in the cap after this. For he was never seen again.

15. Keep away from those wearing large masks.

Yes, those are incredibly horrifying. So is the cat. Might want to avoid if you value your life.

16. Try getting these women out of these large bottles.

They’re dressed as gin and port. And from how the labels are placed, I’m not sure if they’re wearing much else.

17. Someone in this picture has their mask on upside down.

But the mask is nevertheless terrifying just the same. Also, you don’t want to piss off those at the fountain.

18. When these two clowns visit your neighborhood, you better be on your guard.

Make sure you have plenty of candy. For if you don’t, chances are you’ll never be seen again.

19. Better give this devil his due.

Yes, that mask is certainly menacing. So you better give him candy before he takes your soul.

20. Sometimes a so-called cute creature can be upright murderous.

Yes, the costumes here are kind of scary. But the panda and chipmunk are truly the stuff of nightmares.

21. No, you don’t want to shake hands with the pumpkin man.

At first I thought it was a Halloween decoration. Still, I don’t think this girl’s exercising good judgement.

22. Whatever you do, it would be wise not to crash this party.

For all you know, party crashers could be on the menu. So you might as well stay away if you value your life.

23. When trick or treating, kids, there are just some homes you must stay away from.

This house would fall among those you should skip. Doesn’t matter if their candy is good. Because they could easily put you in a pot or a hot oven.

24. Of course, many costume parties should always have a group photo.

Yet, you best not want to see these people in a dark alley. Or intoxicated. Also, what’s party hat Hitler doing here? Talk about terrifying.

25. Don’t want to know who let these dogs out.

For all I know, they’d drag me into the woods and murder me. So best you keep away from these two.

26. Perhaps you might want to pay a visit to the pumpkin man.

May not be as scary as Donald Trump. But the pumpkin head and abdomen is unsettling. Still, have to admire the squash wagon.

27. This guy just wants someone to sit with him.

Though better if you shouldn’t. For you never know what he might do to you. Then again, he might be just lonely.

28. On Halloween, sometimes you might want to know what happened to certain kids’ heads.

I know it’s a mask head. But that just doesn’t look right for some reason. Not sure why.

29. I’m sure this girl wouldn’t want to hold hands with this Uncle Sam.

Even the old costumes not meant to be scary are terrifying. This especially goes for ones of Uncle Sam for some reason. Yes, I feel for that girl, too.

30. Even ghosts can get tired sometimes.

But that’s still a very creepy costume. Also the one with the black leather mask is quite menacing.

31. Sometimes it helps if your costumes match.

Though stripes don’t detract from the horrifying expressions. Best to keep away if you value your life.

32. On Halloween, chances are you might run into a ghost in your neighborhood.

But if you run into this one, try to get out of sight before they haunt your dreams. Otherwise, nobody will see you again.

33. When Dracula and Frankenstein band together, no one is safe.

Sure they’re store bought masks. But they nevertheless seem scary as hell.

34. Keep away from the clown in the corner.

Yes, clowns can terrify us. But this is especially so in black and white photography.

35. Even a pumpkin from bags can horrifying onlookers.

That face may have a smile. But you don’t want to mess with them. Seriously, don’t.

36. Somehow I’m not sure what’s going on with this rabbit.

Cute little bunny rabbit in an outfit isn’t what I have in mind with this one. In fact, wouldn’t be surprised if this girl took out an ax.

37. If you thought the twins from The Shining were creepy…

Those masks are just uncanny and menacing. Guaranteed to give you nightmares.

38. Sometimes it helps of you crack a few egg…people.

This woman’s costume doesn’t even have arm’s for God’s sake. Yet, she doesn’t seem to mind. Not sure why.

39. There’s a strong chance you might be visited by green people from another world.

If they visit you, best to give them what they want. Else, they might vaporize you.

40. Pennywise the Clown has nothing on this guy.

Hell, this guy makes Pennywise look like a clown at a birthday party. Why he doesn’t get the Stephen King treatment, no one knows.

41. Sometimes a costume might seem scarier under candle light.

You can see this in action with this ugly vampire. I’m sure he’d give the guy from Nosferatu a run for his money.

42. Even a wolf can seem scary near a jack-o-lantern.

Not sure if he’ll kill your grandma or blow down your house. But if go near him, you probably don’t want to know.

43. There are some trick or treaters you simply just can’t greet.

Just throw candy at them and have them leave. But not those Dum Dum lollipops. Or candy corn. Else, you’ll regret it.

44. Guess this is what you’d call a 1930s insane clown posse.

Okay, they might not be juggalos. But they’re dressed as clowns. And they’re certainly insane.

45. Only a clown can enjoy a slow dance with a ghoulish ghost.

Though which one I should feel bad for is a difficult question. After all, both seem likely to kill you in your sleep.

46. When these 3 ghosts visit the neighborhood, it’s time to run.

Because if you don’t give them candy, they will haunt your dreams. Or perhaps worse.

47. A jolly clown like this boy is one to avoid.

After all, he might get his jollies from hacking people to pieces. Don’t believe me? Just look at his face.

48. When ghost drive by night, be very afraid.

Still, if you drive near these, you might want to give them the right of way. Because you might regret it if you don’t.

49. Don’t worry about these witches hanging.

Though the old crone seems like one who’d use a candy house to eat children. The other woman doesn’t seem to mind.

50. You can create a scary costume with a white sheet.

Yes, these are certainly menacing. Definitely guaranteed to haunt your dreams.

51. No, you don’t want to touch that clown’s nose.

Though the other kids seem pretty terrifying as well. Nevertheless, best to avoid them on the street.

52. When you see some ghastly folks in cone hats, it’s time to run.

Best not to push their buttons. For you don’t want to be chopped to pieces. So don’t piss them off.

53. Sometimes a simple paper bag can make all the difference.

Must take an artist to make a simple brown paper bag inspire nightmares. Stephen King would be proud.

54. When you’re on a budget, go with newspaper.

Not sure what he’s supposed to be. But at least he’s willing to get creative. Yet, he’s a long shot in any costume contest.

55. Better not look behind you when bobbing for apples.

Because if you do, these undead will kidnap you and bury you alive. So happy apple bobbing, kids.

56. Introducing for one night only, the Skeleton Triplets.

You should really see them dance since they’re such a scream. Also inspire screams when looking into their stone cold faces.

57. When you see this witch around, her little brother won’t be far behind.

So please treat them well and give them candy. But not candy corn since they will absolutely murder you if you do.

58. Even the Devil can be trusted around babies.

Okay, I know this is a picture of siblings. But that masks might suggest the boy’s less than a wholesome influence.

59. Here’s a photo of Pennywise from his childhood.

Let’s just say this was one kid in the neighborhood you didn’t mess with. Because he’d basically kill you.

60. On Halloween, best not mess with these witches.

After all, to these girls, black magic is serious business. And if they turn you into a toad, consider yourself lucky.

61. When he shows up, it’s your time to go.

Since he’s the Grim Reaper. Okay, he’s dressed up as one. But he’s quite frightening.

62. You might want to watch your back with these little devils around.

If you think they’re scary now. Just imagine them with their masks on.

63. Children always enjoy community trick or treating.

But you’d almost mistake this bunch for a horde of horrid monsters. Avoid them like the plague.

64. Apparently, these clowns have taken a couple of hostages.

And it’s likely these two boys may not have long to live. Poor angels.

65. Now this kid has a rather funny looking face.

Never underestimate the power of paper mache. And yes, this mask is terrifying.

66. The difference between these two is in black and white.

No, these two aren’t the aliens from “Let That Be Your Last Battlefield.” Because they didn’t have Star Trek at the time.

67. Bet you wouldn’t want to run into these trick-or-treaters.

Seems like you’ll find plenty of scary masks here. So best to either give them candy or avoid.

68. Don’t look now but Frankenstein’s monster is in the neighborhood.

Though to be fair, Frankenstein’s monster isn’t supposed to be bad. Rather it’s Dr. Frankenstein who’s the real monster.

69. You never know what you can make with paper bags and yarn.

And yes, they’re certainly frightening. Talk about creepy craft projects.

70. Thought Anne Jetson didn’t resemble a horror movie character.

Yet, this one makes a cartoon character seem like she’s from an uncanny valley. Eeek!

71. Should you attend this Halloween party, best to leave as soon as you can.

And yes, I can feel for the guy without a costume in this. Chances are, he won’t be coming home that night.

72. Not sure if he’s a soldier or executioner.

On the other hand, the woman’s dress goes perfect with the wallpaper. Though I wouldn’t mess with the guy with the ax.

73. You’d swear these women’s hair would stand on end.

And they all seem tucked into a sheet like they’re standing. Indeed, I don’t understand it.

74. Apparently, Nathan Bedford Forrest Elementary School wasn’t known for its sensitivity training program.

There’s a reason why we don’t want people to use a cone hat on their ghost costume. Because it brings a startling resemblance to what some white supremacists wear.

75. Dead Mickey Mouse and Batgirl Thing say goodbye.

And yes, their costumes seem to defy all explanation. Yet, they’re also incredibly terrifying.

76. Hope you never run into this rare bird.

Because she doesn’t seem very friendly. Also wears high-heeled shoes.

77. Sometimes you can do plenty with a cardboard mask.

Sure it’s a very cheap Halloween costume. But at the same time, it turns a child into a neighborhood psychokiller.

78. Seems like demonic monsters revel in the great outdoors.

Though you wouldn’t want to be out when they’re in the neighborhood. And yes, I hear they do kill unsuspecting bystanders.

79. Everyone always has fun at the skeleton dance.

But they sure don’t give any bones about freaking out the neighbors. Or anyone else.

80. Sometimes the scary is all kept in the family.

And let’s just say they always dress for dinner. But yes, the women will certainly give you the heebie jeebies.

Ghastly Halloween Greetings in the Ghoulish Days of Old (Third Edition)

fb77b68863193c6f69712ea887a50ad3--vintage-halloween-cards-vintage-cards

Now it’s on to vintage Halloween greeting cards. Whenever I do a post on holiday greeting cards, I usually go for the vintage lot mostly since they have a lot of crazy imagery that don’t hold up in contemporary times. Not to mention, people sent greeting cards to each other way more often than today. Well at least it seems that way. Halloween cards are no exception. Many of these cards use very creepy illustrations sometimes depicting stuff that doesn’t make sense to the modern eye. Sometimes figures aren’t drawn right that they look unintentionally creepy like children. And sometimes the inscription might contain a suggestive message correlating to the image, which I most often see on vintage valentines. Some of these cards could be outright offensive at a demographic stand point. But regardless of what you might see, you’d probably wouldn’t send these cards to a loved one any time soon. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of vintage Halloween cards time forgot.

  1. A large lit jack-o-lantern sets a black cat’s fur on end.

Though I think the cat’s more freaked out by the kid who’s threatening to whack him with a broomstick. Though that jack-o-lantern is creepy.

2. Nobody’s happier on Halloween than a pumpkin head child with gold teeth.

However, this pumpkin kid has inspired countless nightmares ever since. Seriously, anyone would be freaked out by this.

3. Halloween is always a time of year to casually converse with floating jack-o-lanterns.

Because there’s nothing crazy about talking to floating pumpkins under candle light. Okay, little Jimmy may be a little eccentric. But please understand him.

4. “May you have a jolly Halloween!”

However, neither of these kids holding pumpkins seem jolly. More like the kids who showed up at a Halloween party without a costume.

5. Flying a broom at night is thrilling for this pumpkin head kid.

Not sure what’s creepier. Seeing a crone witch flying on a broom in the sky or this. At least flying witches don’t give you nightmares.

6. If you let the candle drip in the water on Halloween, the face of your soulmate will appear.

Guess this is a superstition but I don’t think love works that way. Also, how is that guy sitting without a chair?

7. Cats and little girls are always Halloween chums.

This girl’s like “I’ll love em’ and squeeze em,’ and keep em’ forever and ever.” Cat makes a face like someone in a hostage situation.

8. “A happy future/I hope you will see/On Hallow’een in a cup of tea.”

Not sure if I can go on with that idea. Still, hope the girl doesn’t look at that fairy. Eeek.

9. Happy Halloween from the living human squash garden.

The fact these have pumpkin and squash heads and human bodies make them terrifying enough. You could almost make a horror movie with these.

10. Pumpkin head scarecrow wishes you a joyous Halloween.

Because he’s the only thing keeping you safe from these freaky children. Their smiles are particularly menacing.

11. Terrifying boy with broomstick wishes you a jolly Halloween.

Looking at that kid’s face makes me feel for the whimpering jack-o-lantern. Hate to think of what that boy will do with that broom.

12. Demons and squash people relish in a Halloween feast.

I don’t know why these squash people exist in these Halloween cards. Yet one really seems to enjoy the chocolate box.

13. “Ho! For a Merry Hallowe’en!”

Seems like the jack-o-lantern wants the kid to climb into his mouth in order to devour him. And the moon’s relishing watching the whole thing. Maybe Linus should be glad the Great Pumpkin never came to his neck of the woods.

14. You can’t have a Halloween party without inviting a small moon man.

I’ve heard of the man in the moon. But I had no idea that he had a human body and wears a suit. Still, seems to like tall girls fro some reason.

15. “Pumpkin head I would like to be/If in your arms you would take me.”

Look, I know this is supposed to be a card someone sent to their sweetheart. But the terrifying pumpkins in the background just freak me out.

16. Stay safe on Halloween and watch out for flying jack-o-lanterns.

And you thought the wolf was bad enough for Little Red Riding Hood. Run for your life from those pumpkins! For they will only bring you death.

17. Apparently, nobody wants a visit from the jack-o-lantern ghost.

Still, I’m not sure if the jack-o-lantern is really a head. Or if it’s just on top on its head. Maybe I don’t want to know.

18. Witches on broomsticks always fly by night.

Yet, the man in the moon always likes to gaze at the young witch’s best attributes. Which makes the cats terrified and brings scorn from the owl.

19. Happy Halloween from the hulking depressed ghost.

Guess someone’s not in a scary mood this Halloween night. Not sure what the witch and small scarecrow think otherwise.

20. Bobbing for apples is always Halloween fun.

However, a white girl dressed as an Indian falls under cultural appropriation. Not exactly offensive like the Cleveland Indians logo but still.

21. Children always look forward to Halloween night.

Yet, black cats seem to be afraid of everything. This one absolutely dreads a small child’s embrace and for good reason.

22. “On All-hallows Eve,/When the hour is late,/Pull a root from the garden/And meet your fate.”

Yet, a root with a face and appendages just defies all concepts of biology. Also, what’s this about pulling up root veggies for Halloween?

23. May you see your dream boat in your mirror on Halloween, thanks to witch coming from a pumpkin.

She’s probably freaked out by the witch coming from the pumpkin. Though she might want to look at her ginger dream guy in the mirror. Yet, she’s not paying attention.

24. There’s nothing more fun on Halloween than stealing the occasional jack-o-lantern.

And those trick or treaters should be lucky that the policeman chasing them doesn’t have a gun. Though the ghost kid looks straight out of a horror movie.

25. Halloween greetings from a little red hatted witch.

However, as she sorts her mail, she devises her own little evil plan. So if you see her, you might want to run away from her like hell.

26. Sometimes even witches wouldn’t want to go near a pumpkin headed scarecrow.

Though this guy doesn’t seem able to go anywhere so he might want some companionship. Then again, we’ve probably heard all about Donald Trump’s sexual assault allegations. So I wouldn’t blame the witch here.

27. Everyone always wants to take part in a Halloween parade.

However, you wouldn’t want to take part in this procession. And the fact the pumpkin lanterns also seem to enjoy it only inspires more nightmares. Seriously, why?

28. “At twelve o’clock you must be ready,/And hold your pumpkin good and steady/For by its rays of candle light/On Halloween all things are bright!”

However, the moon behind this witch seems to give her a massive pervo stare. Wonder why she doesn’t feel uncomfortable here.

29. Halloween night might startle you with an occasional fright once in awhile.

I’m sure the cat’s freaked out by the sight of the squash people. Because these squash people are the stuff of nightmares.

30. “The time has come/For the witches’ dance,/And the spooks from far and near/Will gather and make merry/For Halloween is here.”

Though being stared down by a giant jack-o-lantern cannot be a pleasant experience. The green goblins look kind of freaky, too.

31. Remember if you go out alone on Halloween night, you’ll be in for a fright.

Yet, that couple might not want to mind the terrifying jack-o-lantern in the window. Kind of seems evil for some reason.

32. Squash people can’t resist a piece of cake.

Though they sure look terrifying eating it. Still, I swear these guys were a product of some 19th century drug trip.

33. On Halloween night, don’t miss the charms of the witching hour.

Yet, that laughing pumpkin moon just gives me the creeps. And I think the white cat agrees with me.

34. Nothing beats trick or treating on Halloween.

Not sure if this kid’s even wearing costume. Then again, he probably doesn’t need one since he looks pretty terrifying already.

35. A witch’s cauldron should always bring all the spirits in  view.

Yes, those faces will give you nightmares. But what’s with that masked person?

36. “Could I borrow a witch’s flying machine/I’d visit you on Hallow’een.”

Yet, this witch doesn’t seem to fly her broom right. Apparently, the broom part is supposed to be down.

37. Apparently, nobody wants to see flying jack-o-lanterns on a cow.

Well, if I were that woman, I’d be flipping out in fright, too. Those jack-o-lantern smiles are just terrifying.

38. Seems like this black cat really doesn’t like what’s coming out of that cauldron.

Then again, it’s not like I’d blame the cat for anything. Because I thought those cauldrons were just for magic potions.

39. If you want to know your fortune, pull out a beet from your garden at midnight.

Still, the gnome fairy is just incredibly freaky looking. Also, going out in your garden for a beet to read your future? What the hell?

40. No feat is greater on Halloween than carving a giant pumpkin in the patch.

Now we know where the Great Pumpkin came from. Still, can’t really see a kid doing this. Also, you don’t see a lot of stuff lying around. I mean don’t you have to shell out the contents first?

41. If you look in the mirror on Halloween, the fiend will show you the person you marry.

Though I wouldn’t want to look at the white fiend behind if I were him. Also, I don’t think he’s pleased with what he’s seeing.

42. Beware what you find in that old grandfather clock.

Seems like the cat looked and its fur already stands on end. Still, bound to give you nightmares.

43. Keep an eye out for ghosts on Halloween night.

And yes, the ghosts seem like they’re straight out of some horror film. One of them is about to reach for that woman’s shoulder. Freaky.

44. You can always make merry on the drum on Halloween night.

However, the drum doesn’t seem to look happy at all. Also, the cats are parading around mice, which they eat.

45. You never know what you’ll run into on Halloween night.

Or who will be coming home with brown on the seat of their pants. Though seeing a ghostly figure in the woods will freak out just about anyone.

46. There’s nothing scarier than being chased by a jack-o-lantern on legs.

Yes, you’d probably run away from that, too. But the kids seem substantially creepier to me, especially the one getting trampled.

47. Bobbing for apples is always a wholesome Halloween activity.

Though this guy’s wondering which of the twins he wants to make out with. Or he just wants to gape at one of the girl’s drenched pink dress.

48. Happy Halloween, courtesy of Nightmare man.

Surely wouldn’t want to see that guy riding on a broomstick upside down. Yet, the woman with the jack-o-lantern doesn’t seem to mind.

49. May cats in jack-o-lantern hot air balloons bring you Halloween joys.

Even the owl can’t believe what it’s witnessing at the moment. Yes, that’s probably inspired by some drug trip.

50. As you know, jack-o-lanterns can come in so many faces.

Yet, each one of these pumpkins is rather eerie in its own way. Particularly if they have teeth.

The Spooky World of Halloween Pumpkin Dioramas (Third Edition)

pumpkin-diorama-fb

Once again, we come to the pumpkin dioramas said to be one of the hottest trends this Halloween season. Sure most of the pumpkins are from craft stores for obvious reasons. But Yahoo.com touts these projects as a way for families to craft together as the decorating ideas are endless. But most of those I find on the Internet usually depict a haunted scene of some type such as a haunted house or grave yard. After all, Halloween is the biggest fall holiday. Some of them even light up like the diorama above and in so many colors for an eerie effect. You can have glitter pumpkins or ones that glow in the dark. So for your reading pleasure, I bring you another assortment of spooky pumpkin dioramas for Halloween.

  1. Apparently, creepy clowns love to hang out in cemeteries.

Well, if the clown was Pennywise, Stephen King would be proud. A perfect idea for IT fans.

2. Seems like this skeleton has his bones scattered.

The sky on this one has cobwebs inside. Love how the lights are meant to resemble stars.

3. You’d almost think this pumpkin was possessed.

This one depicts a haunted house and graveyard. It even lights up from the ground.

4. This paper haunted house has a friendly ghost.

This one doesn’t seem very hard to make. Even has a little night sky in the background with purple light.

5. For a fairy, a pumpkin shell makes a perfect dining area.

Well, this is more of a fairy house. But it proves that not all pumpkin dioramas have to be scary.

6. A pumpkin makes a wonderful place for your potions.

Sure none of them are fit for human consumption. But perfect for witches who want a place to put their concoctions.

7. If you’re a fan of Stranger Things, here’s a pumpkin diorama for you.

Sure this one uses very small figurines. But you can have fun with this for hours.

8. Eerie green lights are perfect for a graveyard shift.
