I honestly forgot it was Halloween today. Which also created kind of an embarrassing conversation, until I realized “that guy’s not a Mormon. He’s just wearing a goofy costume.” In my defense, I got very little sleep last night…
But it’s Halloween! Seriously, my all time favorite holiday, and I’m already seeing some great costumes… including the deceptive little non-Mormon. damn.
Yesterday, on Twitter I saw one of the best Halloween costumes of all time. Not so much the costume itself, but a great combination of costume and wearer. It was like peanut butter and chocolate, but on a cosmic level. The image was former Wonder Years star Danica Mckellar dressed in the Slave Leia metal bikini. She looks amazing, and yes, growing up that was one of my fantasies. A hot math professor dressed in a brass bikini. Thank you Ms. Mckellar! Though I was kind of bummed to see some of the responses from the internet. Crappy websites like Decider.com and Fatherly.com couldn’t help but inject their little bits of self righteous indignation and virtue signaling by writing the word empowerment in quote marks and claiming that Star Wars fans see the metal bikini as an “unsavory element” in the Star War universe. Which is total horse shit. Princess Leia’s wearing, and fighting, in the metal bikini was (is) one of the best parts of the original trilogy, and it is loved by millions of fans – male and female. Currently the only “unsavory elements” in or around Star Wars are shithead Decider.com bloggers and (of course) the Walt Disney corporation. Disney ruined Star Wars. Yeah, I’m ranting, but dammit, I love Star Wars, gold bras, the American flag, and Halloween.
So like many a Halloween before; please check out a smattering of fun Halloween cartoons and movies and have a happy, fun, and safe Halloween. And protect the slave Leia metal bikini! Its a goddamn global asset!
Hey El Moochadores! It’s our favorite time of the year, and it has become sort of a tradition to re-post some of our favorite Halloween cartoons! Y’know, invite the good spooky vibes. I’ve also included a small list of links to full (and mostly awful) horror movies currently up on the Youtube. Anyways, check out this small collection and we hope you all have a Happy Halloween. Now I am off to get drunk on cheap booze, and sick on small candy. Hit the jump to see all the videos!
Good evening El Moochadores! Our favorite holiday of the year is less than a day away now, and we thought we’d celebrate it with a few of our favorite Halloween related videos! So, in the spirit of the fun, weird, and spooky, please enjoy Disney’s 1949 The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Disney’s 1940 Fantasia:Night on Bald Mountain, and The Green Ruby Pumpkin from Miguel Ortega and Tran Ma. I wanted to add It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown but I couldn’t find any adequate links. However, you can see the full movie on the ABC website. I apologize for the annoying commercials. So, here we go folks! Enjoy the flicks and feel the vibe and we hope you all have a great Halloween!
Hey, check out this kick ass AT-ST Halloween costume I just came across in my reader (via Geekologie.com). It was created by a guy named Scott Holden, and you can see how he put this epic piece of cosplay together here. Take a look and let us know what you think. Later!
Via Geek Tyrant; Okay El Moochadores, here’s just a little more Halloween awesomeness to get you revved up for the holiday! The Green Ruby Pumpkin is a short film produced by Miguel Ortega and Tran Ma, a pair of visual effects artist. I think they capture the spirit of the holiday perfectly and I also think they cast one smoking hot Bride of Frankenstein! Watch the video below and also check out the “making of” video below that.
Okay, I didn’t come up with the term “Geek O’Lantern.” I actually got the term from Geeks are Sexy, which is also were I found these wickedly awesome comic and sci-fi themed Jack O’Lanterns! According to the article;
The Most Amazing Geek-o’-Lanterns You’ll See All Week
Halloween kicks off the best part of the year (at least in my opinion), but I’ve gotta tell you guys: jack-o’-lanterns really don’t do it for me. I was never a fan of scooping out pumpkin guts, and carving the same old triangle-eyed face got old sometime in the 90s. That’s why I was so stoked to find these incredible, geeky jack-o’-lanterns, featuring every awesome thing from Alien to the X Files, including our favorite malevolent hibernating overlord, Cthulhu.
These pumpkins are all part of the amazing Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular in Providence, Rhode Island. The event is hosted every year with a different theme. These are from the “All the World’s a Stage” show, happening now at Roger Williams Park Zoo from through November 3. The Spectacular features more than 5000 pumpkins carved with scenes from well-known movies, Broadway hits and television series, and as you can see here, comic books. Additionally, there’s a section just for pup-o-lanterns, which showcases incredible pumpkins carved with an “amazing variety of dog species,” and a kids-only section with classic Halloween jack-o-lanterns. Proceeds support the Roger Williams Park Zoo education and conservation efforts, and assist with zoo maintenance and improvement funding.
What an awesome way to ramp up for Halloween! Check out the artwork below and happy Halloween!
10/10/2012 / Trog / Comments Off on The Nightmare Before Christmas – Tim Burton’s Original Poem
Via Geek Tyrant; I’ve been so wrapped up in work and Atomic Moo projects that I almost forgot this is the month for Halloween. It’s actually both Chudd’s and mine 2nd favorite holiday (…2nd only to Comic Con) and to help us get in a spooky mood here’s Tim Burton’s original The Nightmare Before Christmas poem set to some very nifty animation and narrated by the great Christopher Lee. Give it a look and I hope this inspires you all to make some great costumes and have fun Halloween!
Ola El Moochadores, and here it is at last our final October-Halloween episode; Dibbuk! In this episode D20, Sir Noel, Chudd, and I discuss the most mind dribbling terrifying things of this world like Spontaneous Human Combustion, The Dibbuk Box, Galvanism, and The Mothman. Listen in and hear us reference and joke about such cool things as Mysterious Universe, The end of the world, and D20’s own personal experiences with the unknown and unexplained.
