The film Jurassic World was kind of a big deal this year, since, you know, it set the all time record for highest box office sales worldwide and all. BUT. Let's be honest: the best parts of Jurassic World were any nostalgic throwbacks and references to the film that started it all...Jurassic Park! JW is shiny and new, but every character, scene, and line of JP is, and forever will be, classic. If you want to be trendy, go ahead and dress as Owen Grady this year. But if you seek to be hailed a "Halloween hero" by fellow late 80s/early 90s babies this Halloween weekend, go with a classic character from Jurassic Park.

Since we at HalloweenCostumes.com love a challenge, we didn't opt for the black leather clad Dr. Malcolm, the jeans and khaki sporting Dr. Grant, or even the white-suited straw-hatted John Hammond. We chose to recreate two costumes worn by the Barbasol blundering, vending machine plundering, inGen underling, Dennis Nedry.

Wolverine DIY and Alternate Logan Ideas: Be the Best There Is at What You Do

 

James "Logan" Howlett, better known as Wolverine, is the most iconic character in Marvel’s superhero team the X-Men, and possibly in Marvel comics as a whole. He’s pretty much the leader of the X-Men, if you ignore Scott “Prettyboy-I-Mean-Cyclops” Summers, which you should. (Ooh! Shots Energy beams fired.) What this means is that Wolverine has always been a popular choice when it comes to Halloween costumes. There’s nothing wrong with standard Wolverine costumes, but sometimes it’s fun to set yourself apart, and you can do so with a set of DIY Wolverine claws and a custom hairstyle, or even by designing your own costume based on his more obscure appearances in comics and movies.

Remember the childhood poem about Little Bunny Foo Foo? He was a fluffy little jerk who would harass all the field mice by bopping them on the heads. Well, karma finally bit Bunny Foo Foo on his furry bottom!

The Good Fairy had enough of his disrespect and she did way more than just turn him into a goon. She took him to her hideaway and The Good Fairy and her magical friends used their wands to cause that bunny bully some serious pain. No one quite knows what happened to Little Bunny Foo Foo; he won't discuss it. We even called The Good Fairy to answer some of our pressing questions regarding the incident, but she hasn't returned any of our calls.

Now Foo Foo spends the majority of his days moping around the briar patch, trying to find a way to keep his eyeball from hanging out of its socket. Has he finally learned his lesson? Only time will tell. We hope, for Foo Foo's sake, that he stays on the fairies' good side!

If you want to concoct your own DIY Bloody Bunny Costume and pay your respects to the former fuzzy tormentor you once sang about...we'll teach you how! Keep in mind, hare today...goon tomorrow!

If you’re thinking of dressing up as a witch for Halloween, be prepared to run into at least a few others. Witches are one of the most popular Halloween costumes of all time, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a unique look if you want to dress up like one!

“I’m melting! I’m melting! Oh, what a world!” The famous last words of the wicked witch of the East in the Wizard of Oz are one of many memorable lines from the movie. All it took was a bucket of water to melt one of the most wicked witches away. It makes you wonder what  a witch might look like after just a mist of water hits on her face. She’d just looked...burned, right? And a little melty? We put together this burnt witch makeup makeup tutorial to get just that look, a-sure fire way to help your witch stand out from the west. Errr- the rest.

Sometimes, you’re outwitted by a highly intelligent inverse version of yourself, but you always find a way to prevail for the righteousness of St. Canard. And, of course, you regularly yell out your bone-chilling battle cry, “LET’S GET DANGEROUS!”

DIY Scary Mermaid

 

Think about mermaids for a moment. Are you picturing a shy-but-friendly woman/fish-hybrid right out of Splash or The Little Mermaid? Or maybe even that string of direct-to-video movies starring Barbie? (Which begs the question: can a doll truly “star” in a movie?) If so, you’re not alone, because these mythical creatures are often portrayed as mysterious but ultimately good at heart. But this hasn’t always been the case! For much of history, “mermaids” were seen as terrifying creatures, having been blamed for luring sailors to their watery deaths or the disappearance of entire ships! Now if that’s the type of scary mermaid you’d like to dress as for Halloween or Cosplay, keep reading to see how we did it! And stick around for tips on what to do (if anything) if you have a broken bone or other injury at Halloween.
