Scaring People in a Grim Reaper Costume

Prankster and funny man Jack Vale got into the Halloween spirit by scaring people in a Grim Reaper Costume. As you can imagine, much hilarity ensues. It’s an impressive costume, one that requires stilts. In full costume, Vale stands 8 feet tall! I would be scared, too. Well done, Sir, and Happy Halloween!

Paper Bag Masks from the 1950’s

Here’s a vintage ad from the 1950’s. These Paper Bag Masks are rather creepy, don’t you think? But hey, today is Halloween. If you still don’t have a costume, this may be your best bet. 🙂

Beautiful CinderLeia Costume

Check out this CinderLeia costume, made by Kat Curtis. What a lovely Disney crossover. It’s Cinderella dressed as Slave Leia, the best of both worlds. Great job!

When Disney buys Star Wars, CinderLeia happens.

Dancing Skeleton Music Video

Nothing says Halloween like a dancing skeleton. Check out the smooth moves of Nathan Barnatt as he dances to the song Dead Man’s Bones. This is rather hypnotic to watch. Awesome stuff.

Funny Bud Lightyear Costume

Ha, it’s Bud Lightyear! This looks fantastic. It’s almost philosophical, in a way. To get a Buzz costume, you must first get a buzz. The circle is complete. 🙂

Homemade Trash Can Costume

Well if this isn’t the cutest trash can costume I’ve ever seen. And it’s quite simple, too. When his daughter wanted to dress as a trash can for Halloween, all Redditor eAtheist needed to do was cut a few holes. Instant costume! Very nice. Just don’t stand on the street when it’s trash day.

New Trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past

Ready for more X-Men? I sure am. This looks like a great crossover between the characters from the older X-Men movies, and the younger characters from 2011’s First Class. We do have a while to wait for this, as it’s not due in theaters until May 2014. Can’t wait!

The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class,” in an epic battle that must change the past — to save our future.
