With Halloween approaching once again, people are looking for costumes that are funny, weird, scary, cool, awesome, etc. We don’t sell costumes here, but we do usually show pictures of some interesting costumes every year around this time. So here’s a few more…
Warning: the following picture may be disturbing to some viewers. If you are easily grossed out or offended, you should stop here. It’s just not right.
One of my friends said he was going to get a Halloween costume of a giant whoopie cushion. Of course you can imagine what kind of sound effects he would produce to go with such a costume.
It’s that time of year when people carve up pumpkins to make jack o’lanterns for Halloween. Traditionally this is done with a knife, but some people choose to think outside the box and have a little more fun with it.
One guy who calls himself Hickok45 uses various guns to “carve” his pumpkins. In one video, he used a Glock .40 caliber:
He has many other shooting videos, like using an Uzi to blow up 50 two-liter sodas. It was neat to see them exploding in slow-motion. (This reminds me, it’s been way too long since I’ve shot stuff for fun.) He shoots barrels full of water with historical guns, like the WWII German subgun, the MP40, then uses his 10mm pistol to finish it off. So far, he has 702 videos, with over 93 million total video views. That’s probably well over the amount where you start getting paid by YouTube for your videos. That’s the kind of job I need!
This year, it seems people got into decorating for Halloween a lot more than normal. And as you’ve probably noticed, retail department stores are pushing the Christmas decor on us before Thanksgiving. It’s getting crazy. I like to keep the holidays separate — my rule is no Christmas music or Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving. But stores seem to not be informed of my rule.
Before long, these holidays will all become merged by the unstoppable commercialization process. Figuring out how to market the holidays together might seem difficult, but fortunately someone has already figured all this out. In the article I’m about to link to, Chris Carlisle combines Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. For a mascot / symbol, he creates a “ninja robot Mecha Santa Claus”. If that’s not enough to get you to read the article, I don’t know what is… Plus it’s funny, and he has a good way of explaining all this.
Here’s some more pictures of costumes for Halloween, parties, conventions, etc. The first funny costumes post featured superhero costumes, so this one will be more random. Some are from popular franchises like Star Wars and Halo, and there are some creative and well-done ones in here, too. Feel free to comment on any of them, if you have something funny to add.
Once again this is getting long, so I’ll put the rest in another post. Here’s a link to search for the other funny costumes posts.
