Anyone who is familiar with The Nightmare Before Christmas (NBC), knows these trick or treater masks were used by Lock, Shock, and Barrel (DSB). It had been a few years since I added other characters to my NBC clan because of the lack of free time. So the plan is to make the masks this year, their body props next. But many enjoy the masks on a wall, as is. Here’s the tutorial on how to make them: Continue reading

Now that it is time to mull over what costume to choose this year – don’t forget your favorite pet. Kitty Bloger has some wonderful images of cats in costumes.

Newzshop also includes some images from Kitty Bloger and others – if you’re really interested in dressing your cat.

As for your other animals, I’ll save that for a later post.

* Please note: For the sake of animal love, only dress cats(or other animals) that truly enjoy it. Otherwise this might seem a little cruel. Thanks!

Some people get really disturbed when they go to a Halloween party and find others dressed in the same costume. Although I look at it as: the-more-the-merrier, others might not feel the same.

So here’s a few unique ideas that I’ve NEVER seen before today.

I wonder if any students can get extra credit for their photography class by actually becoming the camera? Either way, the costume can be found at Instructables and is called the Fully Functional Camera Costume.

Be a Thirst Quencher

At least this wine spigot costume girl never leaves her friends high and dry. On the Instructables page called a Box of Wine Costume, there is an actual contest being held for anyone who makes the costume, takes a picture of themselves, and then posts with comments. Just don’t tell your friends if you want to be the only wine box at the party.

Do you have any unusual costumes you’d like to share? Send your photos and/or instructions of how you did it and I’ll post them – giving you the credit. Thanks!
