Artsy Halloween: Art Students In Japan Dressed Up As Famous Paintings

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.

Star Destroyer Halloween Costume Is Something I Never Thought Possible

Most Halloween costumes are based on creatures, personalities, and maybe robots, but we never heard or seen any kid dressing up as a vehicle, let alone a spaceship, for trick-or-treat. Well, that’s until now. Andrew Guy is a loving father who did just that, i.e. he made a vehicle costume. Guy built an Imperial Star Destroyer costume over a bicycle for his son Aidan. As you can see, while it may not be practical, this ‘costume’ is pretty damn impressive with the lights and all.

Tolkien’s frictional world did not materialize; instead, it was a projection designed by artist Jim Campbell. Continue reading This Halloween, Eye Of Sauron Turned San Francisco Into Middle-earth

Child Pulling Off A Carry Her Own Head Costume Is Next Level Of Creepy

Well, if this isn’t the creepiest child Halloween costume ever. Headless costumes are not new, but when a child pulls it off, it is a whole new level of creep. It reminds me of Japanese horror flicks that involves child spirits. Mum Krystel Hwang dressed up her sweet daughter, Maya, in a flowered dress, which was nothing shocking until you realize this child was without a head. She was “carrying” her own head. With an appropriate makeup, along with not-so-subtle blood spill off from the supposed “severed” neck, the effect was pretty damn dramatic.

Horse In AT-AT Costume Will Make For A Perfect Trick Or Treat Companion

What are the odds of people dressing up as Star Wars AT-AT pilots? I would think the odd is extremely low because, you know, AT-AT pilots are not as iconic as the Stormtroopers, AKA troopers with terrible aim.

Praises For Shuri And Ms. Marvel Kid’s Costumes And Wasp’s Sexual Costume

Originally, the idea of dressing up in costumes for Halloween is to scare away supernatural or folkloric beings, but it has since evolved to, well, anything goes. As far as children goes, it is about cuteness and the ability to grab sweet treats. Add a dash of today’s need for political correctness, you have the Internet praising children’s costumes inspired by two super heroines of color: Kamala Khan, the Marvel’s first Muslim character whose alter ego is Ms. Marvel (whose superpower is “polymorph”) and the genius Shuri from Black Panther movie.
