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.

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.

Daft Punk Costume (Guy) Constructed from a stripped motorcycle helmet and 12" clear plastic dome. Finished by sanding and painting with Gold Spraypaint, Tinted Dome with a thin coating of glasspaint, custom foam padding inside for a snug fit.

 

Hope to smooth out the edges with sanding and Bondo, add the ear detail, and LEDs for next year...

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.

completely made from bones. This is the piece I gave to Rob Zombie

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.

i feel happy about the way this one came out.

After a very busy Saturday, I completed my mission of creating Bjork's swan dress. Not bad, if I do say so myself! Then Sunday was spent Swiffering feathers off of my kitchen floor.

More scenes, including a recursive/self-referential scene in the lower-left corner.
