I’m all for honestly creepy and disturbing things. Be it decorations, fine art, whatever. That’s why 98% of all Halloween decorations utterly disappoint. I look more for stuff like what artist Shain Erin has up in his Etsy store. These dolls are works of art and creepy as hell. While not what one would consider “cheap” they really aren’t priced too bad for being one-of-a-kind pieces. Check em out!

Red Riding Hood Halloween Costumes
In honor of Jessica’s complete Vamp hotness as Red Riding Hood in True Blood’s finale, SoCreepy wants to make it easy for you to shop for Red Riding Hood Halloween costumes. No joke – every woman looks good in a Red Riding Hood Halloween costume – sexy style, plus size, fairy tale style – they all work. Don’t be pervy – we also featured girls Halloween costumes because they love Little Red Riding Hood.
P.S. – if you can rock it like Jessica did, call us, okay??
I’m only half way through World War Z. It’s a fairly decent book and it is an interesting twist to the overpopulated zombie genre. So it’s disappointing to hear the film based on the book deviates so far from it, that it will be nothing like the book at all. Leave it to Hollywood. IO9 has the details and excerpts from zombie nerds around the interwebs who have gone bezerk about it. So go check it out.

Growing up as a kid I was really into horror movies and special effects. Unfortunately I didn’t steer my career in that direction. The guys I admire the most in the field though are Dick Smith, Rick Baker and Tom Savini. Rick Baker does some fantastic creature work.
Well, Tori Belleci from Mythbusters is a huge fan of Rick Baker. Now Belleci is also one lucky fan boy. He got the chance to tour Rick Baker’s F/X studio and he took plenty of pictures for all to see. So go look and be prepared to be jealous as hell.

Harry Potter Halloween Costumes – Gryffindor Halloween Costumes – Slytherin Halloween Costumes – Hufflepuff Halloween Costumes – Ravenclaw Halloween Costumes
You won’t need magic to pull a Harry Potter Halloween costume out of your sorting hat. It’s as simple as gathering a few staples together. This Hogwarts Halloween costume works for Hermione Granger or Ron Weasley as well – just make sure to have the appropriate wigs – wavy for a Hermione Halloween costume and red for a Ron Halloween costume. We also have all the Hogwarts Halloween costumes including Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw.
Items you will need for a Harry Potter or Hogwarts Halloween costume:
Messy dark hair or a dark-haired wig
Black robe or hoodless cape (a dark v-neck sweater works too)
White button-down shirt
Red and yellow tie
Scar kit or red greasepaint stick
Black round-rimmed glasses
Black shoes and socks
Dress as if you’re heading off to a boarding school on the East Coast . . . Choate, Riverdale or, why not, Hogwarts?? Once you’re dressed, put on your glasses and you should pass for Harry Potter. If you don’t have dark hair, go for a wig. Don’t forget something very important – a lightning bolt shaped scar on your forehead. We suggest carrying your wand (don’t be dirty), your broomstick (don’t be dirty) or a toy white owl to complete the look. If the scar starts to bother you, perhaps He Who Must Not Be Named is around. Or maybe you’re just drunk.
Steven Spielberg was offered the position as director of the first Harry Potter film, but was later refused when he couldn’t agree with JK Rowling’s insistence on an all-British cast. He wanted to use Haley Joel Osment for the part of Harry. Let’s face it, that would have sucked. SO bad!
