Silly Scarecrow Prank is Two Costumes in One

Aw, look at this silly scarecrow, spreading smiles and Halloween joy. But wait! All is not what it seems. It’s the old double costume trick, very nice. Watch as the poor unsuspecting people run for their lives!

Adventure Time Gets a Gritty Reboot

The beloved TV show Adventure Time gets a gritty reboot, thanks to the talented people at GrittyReboots. It’s quite dark and sad, but I suppose that’s the point.

I especially like the Adventure Time costumes. Even Lemongrab makes a brief appearance. Very well done!

The Land of Ooo is dying, the magic that once populated it with magical creatures fading away. These are the last days of Jake and Finn, unless the last human can find a way to restore magic to the world.

Cardboard Beer Warrior Costumes

Behold, the Knights of Beer! These homemade costumes are surprisingly well made, and they probably had fun gathering supplies. :)

These guys are in a rock band together, and I hope they use this photo for an album cover. Great job!

Triumph Insults Times Square Mascots

I’ll be honest, I didn’t know that Triumph the Insult Comic Dog was still around. Yet here he is, ruthlessly mocking the costumed characters that entertain in Times Square, New York. What a salty little dog puppet.

I thought many of the costumes shown are quite good, actually. But hey, it’s Triumph. He’s always good for a few chuckles.

Don’t miss this super fun cosplay video from the recent Edmonton Expo 2014. YMMPodcast was on the scene and did a remarkable job capturing all the costume magic.

I love the big group shot on the stairs towards the end. Terrific job, Everyone!

Kittens Wear Assassin’s Creed Costumes

Everything’s better with kittens… including this wonderful tribute to Assassin’s Creed. These little balls of fur may look cute, but they are actually quite deadly. There is no escape!

This was made by Mr.TVCow, who certainly deserves a round of applause for his fine work.
