This Good Witch handed out the "Which Witch? Inc." flier to some of the people who gave her candy, especially the ones dressed as witches. It was fun to see the adults' surprised faces when they received something in return for the candy they gave to this trick-or-treater.

 

Update October 2009: Seen in the Daily Green and Dadsgogreen.

"It's-a me, Mario!"

 

He was so happy with his costume he wore it all day (the day before and the day after) pretending he was Mario jumping around and running with his Koopa shell. Even the mustache didn't bother him.

 

It was neat to hear people say "Look, it's Mario" when he walked by. I kept telling him he should say "Yes, it's-a me, Mario" or "Mama mia!" but he wouldn't go for it.

I suppose this is more of a costume accessory. It’s a brain and a handbag. On occasion it may even be a decoy. Say you’re out and about on Halloween night when you happen upon a gang of zombies. In a brave attempt to save your life, you create a diversion by hurling the brain bag in they’re direction. As they clamber for fresh brains you make your get away.

This fellow is part of a collection of Lego Abominations.

Please note that both my arms were available to be used. The arm holding my head is fake, but my real arm could stick out of the top-skirt.

This is the completed Dalek, heading off somewhere, presumably hunting after some humans that have escaped.

Some of Bugboy's classmates didn't know what he was, but the older kids loved it. They were chanting "Sushi! Sushi! Sushi!" as he passed by.

 

For a while after Halloween he was kind of grumpy about the costume and didn't want to talk about it. Turns out some of the kids started calling him Sushi and he didn't like it. He is fine now.

The White Wizard is a 3.5ft. tall wizard totally constructed from animal bones.

these are the original photos taken the first time i was the bride of frankenstein halloween 2004. i made the entire costume including the wig and brain bag.

Here's my favorite design for a jack-o-lantern; it's a (tiny) mini-pumpkin carved with the circuit diagram symbol for a light-emitting diode. Naturally, it's lit by an LED.

 

This LED circuit inside this one is a TireFly, which is a type of blinky light designed to mount on the tires of a bicycle. You can get these things at regular hardware stores or sporting goods stores-- I got mine at Target-- and so this is one of the easiest and quickest ways to get an LED in your pumpkin.

Putting the "cute" in "electrocute"!

Powered by a 9v battery, it delivers just a little jolt.

Endless possibilities for fun- imagine if the one who loses at Scrabble, or doesn't do the dishes has to go to "the chair"!

Also good for trick-or-treaters who show up without a costume.

Video!

Here are the legs stitched on and the leg gathers are visible

I'm holding a drink for show. You'll notice the hole in the arm that allows me to use my hands when needed. Within the costume is a tube from a hydration bladder that routes to a large stainless coffee cup accessible through the door next to my wallet. After all, Bender is fueled by alcohol...

If you've seen 1970's vintage cylons, you know that they come with built in star filters.

two trips to staples later (9 peices of 8.5" colored copy paper, elmers glue) and its faces are done.

i feel happy about the way this one came out.
