Puppy Monkey Baby Header

 

What happens when you combine three awesome things? Well, during the big game, Mountain Dew ran a commercial explaining that you get something really awesome like one of their delicious beverages or you get something like puppy monkey baby. While puppies, monkeys, and babies may all be cute and awesome on their own, the puppy-monkey-baby combo from this memorable and divisive ad is something that either captivated you in a way you couldn't look away or simply terrified you. Whether you're looking to get some laughs or freak people out, here’s a quick and easy way to make your very own puppy monkey baby costume. After all, Halloween is only a mere 8 months...

When you think of professional wrestling, your mind might not automatically turn to hugs and kisses. While the form of “sports entertainment” known as professional wrestling is noted for loud slaps, hard falls, and bulging muscles, it’s also about friendship and alliances. Few WWE superstars can make it on their own, they’ve got to have a partner in their corner who always has their back. And that’s not even mentioning the many, many storylines through the years that have revolved around one wrestler stealing another wrestler’s wife/girlfriend. Love and hate coexist in a weird space in any given wrestling match or backstage promo. For the pro-wrestling fan in your life, give them the gift of a highly specific WWE Valentine’s Day card, featuring their favorite wrestler, past or present.

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!

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.
