Wes Craven Tribute

 

You’d be hard pressed to find a stronger director/writer one-two punch in horror cinema than what Wes Craven accomplished with The Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes. They are quintessential 70s horror—relentless, disturbing, and violent. There were a lot of movies like that in the 70s, but Craven was one of the few to do exploitation-horror well. In a genre which very rarely births a director that becomes a household name, Craven defied all odds amidst the turbulent Hollywood studio system.

More than defy the odds, he exceeded all expectations, and even thrived through the 90s, where his Scream trilogy rejuvenated and flipped on its head the then-dead slasher genre. We are clearly big fans of horror here at Halloweencostumes.com and Craven’s work has inspired and frightened us for years. His death on Sunday at the young age of 76 shocked us all. We would be remiss to not do our small part to remember just a sliver of his genius body of work. Below we have compiled a list of six of our favorite Wes Craven films....

Star Wars Lightsabers Infographic Header

 

The incredible technology dreamed up by George Lucas when he created the Star Wars universe has been imagination food for generations of fans since. None more so than the lightsaber, wielded by those samurai-like mystics the Jedi and their evil counterparts, the Sith. Since Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader had their duel aboard the Death Star, followers have yearned for more of this iconic weapon from the Star Wars franchise.

 

December 2015 will see the release of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, and with it the return of these awe-inspiring weapons. Kylo Ren, one of the major villains from the new film, wields the latest version of the lightsaber, which has been dubbed "The Cross-Guard Lightsaber" by fans. This imposing design boasts two miniature sabers that act as handguards, similar to a medieval sword. In celebration, and because we couldn't turn down lightsaber research, we've put together a beautiful infographic charting some of the most important, most unique, and most recognizable lightsabers from the Star Wars Universe.

Star Wars Costume Ideas Clone Troopers

 

Legendary Jedi heroes Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi are renowned for their roles in The Clone Wars, and for Anakin’s transformation into Darth Vader. Less renown, though arguably as important, are the Clone Troopers and officers who helped these Jedi find success in the war. The clones from Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, and The Clone Wars T.V. show, offer up the perfect companion costumes for those who don’t want to dress as Lightsaber-wielding Jedi or Sith. If you’re more comfortable with a Blaster than a Lightsaber, consider these Clone Wars heroes for your next Star Wars themed costume!

Attack on Titan Infographic

 

Attack on Titan (aka 進撃の巨人 or Shingeki no Kyojin) made a colossal splash on pop culture the last few years. From the pages of the unstoppable Japanese manga to the anime series you couldn’t peel your bloodshot eyes away from, Attack on Titan took the world by gnashing-toothed storm. And the storm only seems to intensify with time!

There was the live-action movie making a footprint on Comic-Con, wild speculation about the true nature and origins of Titans, and “leaked” information that brewed the perfect storm for fans and YouTube/Wikia speculators. Yep, the mystery mingled with misinformation created a steamy mess that we couldn't resist. So, we tried to do some untangling by dredging up information that true fans might appreciate. Again, proceed with caution, but if you can still enjoy a show or manga with a little bit of the backstory in your noggin, then spoil away friends!
