Mark Williams and his wife Heidi Loutzenhiser love halloween so much they fill their home with over 1,000 creepy dolls before opening it up for the public to enjoy over the halloween season. Founded in 1867 by German Dr. Hermann Reinhardt, the Doll Asylum’s purpose was to receive dolls who were abandoned, neglected, or most importantly, showing signs of psychotic or murderous behaviour.

Most animals don’t celebrate Halloween, unless their owners dress them up that is. Simpsons illustrator Elizabeth Climo has a big imagination, and she created some comics that show what animals would be doing if they actually did celebrate Halloween, and she nailed it. Continue reading »

The popular film Mad Max: Fury Road certainly wasn’t a children’s movie, but parents Cory and Jeremy Newton-Smith have adapted it into an adorable Halloween costume for their kids. Described as “‘makers’ long before the term was popular,” the couple created a “war rig” for their four-year-old son Cooper and 11-month-old daughter Ziggy. They are Max and Furiosa, respectively, and their adorable outfits complement the incredible build of the armored vehicle, which recalls the tattered grittiness of the action-packed film.

Meet Willow Lee, a 3-year-old from California who has already been dubbed the undisputed queen of Halloween.
It’s still two weeks until the holiday, but Willow’s elaborate costumes — including prison chef Red from Netflix’s Orange is the New Black, an elderly woman with a walker, and a make-up counter salesgirl at a department store — are a huge hit.

A description of a relatively simple Halloween costume using 2 iPad2s to make it look like you have a huge hole in your torso. You’ll also need a MiFi hotspot (if you don’t have a WiFi network available where you want to use the costume). Basically you start a FaceTime chat between the iPads and then tape one to your front and one to your back. Add a little red paint and you’re good to go. It’s supposed to look like you have a gaping hole in your torso. If you spend more time than I did on the blood and the flesh part and lining up the iPads it could look pretty cool.

“I Spotted This Today At The Cleveland Museum Of Natural History”
Museums are so much fun, it’s ridiculous that it’s not against the law. We absolutely love walking (remember, no running!) down the corridors of art galleries, as well as science and history museums. But while we’re absorbing all of that knowledge and human genius, we also remember to have a spot of fun. This article is all about that. Continue reading »
How would you describe normal, everyday life? Well, for a modern person, it’s anything from brushing their teeth to… commuting to work. Oh wait, not anymore. Coronavirus has shaken up quite a few things, and made us work from home, stay in more, keep distances and whatnot. The change is dramatic and it’s only been like two years (almost three!, o-m-g) since it first started in late 2019. Continue reading »
