Happy Halloween!

Check out Adam Savage’s Ghostbusters Costume that he made for Halloween… and to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original movie’s release. He shows off the costume on Tested. The proton pack even lights up! It’s a great day for busting ghosts, that’s for sure.


To celebrate both Halloween this week and the 30th anniversary of the release of Ghostbusters, Adam shares his own Ghostbusters uniform and prop replicas that he has made and assembled over the years.

Costumes in Full Force on May the 4th

I hope everyone had a wonderful May the 4th on Sunday! This Star Wars holiday seems to get bigger each year, so great to see.

YouTube had some fun with Lucasfilm this year, and featured some great Star Wars videos. At the top, we have Star Wars Cantina Band Auditions from College Humor. And below, we have Kid Snippets: “Star Wars Cantina” by Bored Shorts TV.

They had children recreate the Cantina scene, then re-shot it with adults. Such a funny idea!

It’s fun to see Star Wars celebrated around the world. Here are some photos of a huge event in Rome, Italy. May the Force be with you!

Looks like Madonna had some costume fun during Purim. She posted a photo of herself on Instagram, wearing a Daenerys Targaryen costume from Game of Thrones. Nice costume! She looks great as the Mother of Dragons.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

The Scary Snowman is back! He’s wearing green and celebrating St. Patrick’s Day the only way he knows how… by scaring people! Though not everyone was scared, lol. Many of the boisterous revelers enjoy hanging on him and playing with his nose. There’s even some twerking? It looks like everyone’s having a great time.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

The Softer Side of The Witch King

I stumbled onto this cosplay photo and it made me smile. This is a rare glimpse at the softer side of the Witch King from Lord of the Rings. He just wants to celebrate Mardi Gras like the rest of us. And give out hugs, of course.

This costume was made by deviantArtist ZeroNinetyNine, who wore it to a recent Carnival celebration. Well done, Sir. And I hope the Witch King earned many beads this year.

Half-Shaved Mardi Gras Man

Did everyone have a fun Mardi Gras? This guy sure did. Half-shaved and ready to party! Ha, too funny. So what happens now… shave the rest, or let it grow back? A tough decision, indeed.
