Never mind that the basis of dressing up during Halloween has changed. These days, even Elvin Presley can ward off evil spirits, and so do the cumbersome human spider and oh, Walter White too. But straying from its origin has resulted in some rather creative Halloween costumes, such as these famous painting costumes by a group of student from The Amazing School of Special Effects. As you can see, the students have put their skills they have learned from the school out there at the biggest Halloween parade in Japan in Kawasaki.

While their teacher, face, body paint and SFX artist Amazing JIRO‘s other students also did an amazing job, dressing up as other works of fine art (Buddha statues are equally amazing!), there is nothing like walking 3D versions of famous paintings like Vincent Van Gogh self-portrait, Johannes Vermeer’s “Girl With a Pearl Earring” (my personal favorite), Edvard Munch’s iconic “The Scream,” and Leonardo da Vinci “Mona Lisa.”

Surely, countless people had dressed up as Mona Lisa, or even the Girl With a Pearl Earring, but it is a whole level of awesomeness when these iconic painting people are still in their frames, complete with the appropriate background. Now, if these famous paintings Halloween costumes aren’t the raddest costumes this Halloween, I don’t know what is (or are). Skip ahead for a couple more looks, along with a couple of videos recorded by some Twitter users.
