The best thing about having kids is making them like all the things you like and getting them to do things that you wished you did as a kid. Like dress up as a mini Predator. They can be whatever parents want them to be and no matter what, they'll be impossibly cute. Being a parent is so easy!
I'm pretty sure any kid under the age of 8 will believe that this street performer in a Transformers costume is a real life Transformer. Heck, I'm many wrinkles and awful decisions beyond being a kid and I still have a part of me that's hoping this is a real Transformers who just wants to spread joy of the Transformer…
Mark Rober has been wowing us for three of years now with his innovative, high-tech Halloween costumes. In fact, he got so good at it that he quit his job at NASA to devote himself to "Digital Dudz" full-time. Now he's applied the cyber-clothing concept to the perennial holiday favorite, the ugly Christmas sweater,…
Interaction designer Chris Woebken has taken Halloween to its logical conclusion: helping one species pass for another.
A very smart dude by the name of Mark Rober figured out that if you strap two iPad 2's to yourself, you can create this incredible, freaky hole effect. This guy should work for NASA. Oh wait, he does.
It's about that time of year when the most talented among us are finishing up their Halloween costumes and showing off photos of their creations online. Tyler Card's Nikon DSLR costume is particularly amazing, and meta, since he can actually use it to take photos of itself.
This Star Wars costume was specially made by Lindsay Boo Barrasse with five rolls of 15-yard duct tape. And another for the wig. And she pulls it off smashingly. [BuzzFeed]
Jay Maynard, better known as TRON Guy, intended on wearing his famous light-up costume to a showing of TRON: Legacy recently, but his local movie theater refused to admit him. What on earth do they have against awkward costumes?
The voters have spoken and so we present to you the winner of the whole shebang! Javene and Tom Truong's submission of Princess Leia-X (Termileia?) captured the hearts and imaginations of our voters for a whopping 369 votes!
Here's another contender for kid costume of the year: a homemade Jawa costume for a 4 year old complete with brown hoodie and glowing yellow eyes. It's so cute, yet so "real".
Halloween is coming up and you need a costume, but who wants to spend the money? No one! Just follow these instructions from a resourceful Transformers fan and make an Optimus Prime suit out of cereal boxes and cardboard instead.
Here's an awesomely creative example of being resourceful: a Star Wars fan built a Stormtrooper helmet out of two milk jugs. Yes, that helmet in the picture was made with those plastic milk gallons in your fridge right now.
If I ever have a daughter, I'm letting her wear any costume she wants. But—in the name of all that is sweet, sugary, and adorable—I hope she wants a Voltron one like this. Update: Now with how-it-was-made pictures!
This Gizmodo reader says his name is Ryan Kennedy, but you ain't fooling us, Matt Damon! And you are not going to get anywhere near pretty pixelated face girl for some makeouty as long as you wear your pixeljunk outfit.
Ever since I first saw the breathalyzer costume a few years ago, I knew it was only a matter of time before some frat boy was busted for drunk driving wearing one. That day has arrived.
