I have yet to see a photoset yet this year that includes ALL of the (non-derailing) entries, so I’m undergoing the great effort (a dozen mouse clicks) to compile and share.

Original idea and poster design from STARS at Ohio University. The Romani entry was by golden-zephyr.

My Halloween costume: Michelle Obama.  I dressed as Michelle Obama in 2008 so I clearly had to do that again this year for luck.

“Ya’ know, Rick [Moranis] is known and loved for his family films like Parenthood and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.”
“Oh! And don’t forget Little Shop of Horrors!”
“That’s not a family film. You don’t know your movies!”
“You don’t know my family!”

Tis’ the season: Time For A New Tactic While We Still Have The Time

adailyriot:

So, as most of you know, we’re now in the Halloween season. That lovely time of year which folks of all kinds can go to their local halloween costume store of choice and buy themselves their very own cultural stereotype in a bag… often made with poor stitching and flimsy fabric.

While a lot of folks have already begun complaining about said practice, I say that we also engage in another tactic.

We have already seen big name companies back down and stop selling culturally appropriate and culturally insensitive clothing and items when the public generates a campaign to get them remove them. Right now we have access to tons and tons of Halloween stores throughout the United States and Canada. In those stores, not only are there the terrible costumes of stereotypes of Native Americans, Hispanics, East Indian women, and orientalist asian costumes, there are also the names of the companies whom make them on the packaging itself.

It’s time that we collect those company names and start a campaign to get them to stop making and selling those costumes. We could also target the halloween franchises themselves to also stop selling and distributing the costumes.

While it won’t end the selling of the costumes for this halloween season, it could be a move that could end it for halloween seasons to come.

“Kermit, what is this contract?”
“Oh, that just belongs to Alice. You know the Faust story? Faust sold his soul to the devil and in return become very rich and very famous, and Alice says that this is that kind of a contract.”
“Really? Where do I sign?!”

Regarding the incident last year, Loki is to please refrain from reenacting Sleepy Hollow, Friday the 13th, Halloween, or any other horror movies he might happen to have seen in last year. And on that note, magical ‘enhancements’ to haunted houses ARE NOT appreciated.]

Curious History:  Extreme Pumpkin Carving

American artist Ray Villafane has taken pumpkin carving to a whole new level. Using his background in fine art and his work in designing models for DC and Marvel comics, Ray turns pumpkins into gruesome Gothic gargoyles.

I miss growing strange pumpkins.
