Last year, to celebrate Halloween, I wrote up blogs on pumpkin templates and animal Halloween costumes. Well, a year has passed and…sure…I’d love to do up some fresh takes on this season. But, I just can’t resist a good pumpkin OR pets all dressed up. So, I thought, why not do a best of 2009 Halloween list. Except, I’ve expanded the categories. Huffingtonpost has been running loads of good Halloween lists, so if you get a moment, go and check those out…I’ve snagged many pics from that site. I wholeheartedly recommend their collection of ‘best geeky’ costumes. It’s a treasure trove.
105. Best of Halloween List
–Best Pumpkin Template: By a liberal mile, the best new addition to Halloween-squash awesomeness is this Rachel Maddow pumpkin stencil.
–Funniest Costume (Female): This 80′s Sitcom Mom as made available on 80stees.com Proves that raising kids in the eighties is hard, but HILARIOUS!
–Best baby costume (warm weather climate): Nacho Libre!
–Best baby costume (cold weather): Luke Skywalker inside a dead ton-ton
–Best Pet (Non-Dog Category) Costume–This cat…just look at that aggravated expression. Priceless.
–Best Dog Costume–Redneck boxer…he looks like he’s right off of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour.
–Best Dog Costume (Breed Appropriate)–It’s a French Bulldog as a Gondolier, get it?! Oh wait…Venice is in Italy…whatever–close enough.
–Most and Best Effort: Coolest Transformers costume ever. And I don’t even LIKE Transformers.
Well, that’s all for now. Happy Halloween, dear readers. Back to regularly geekitude next month.
