This Beetlejuice costume is great all on its own, but when you add in the sandworm puppet it’s just amazing. Instructables user Mr. Noack spent most of a year collecting all the parts and started putting them together back in August. It’s not just a costume, but a whole diorama that includes the house, the Maitlands, and the sand worm winding through it all.

A lot of attention is paid to the costumes that superheroes wear, but their everyday duds are often ignored. The creative team behind Batgirl decided to release images of their inspirations for her wardrobe. There are very real-world versions of the clothes she wears, and if you want to imitate her style, these pictures are a great place to start.

mando in hawaii

This Mandalorian cosplay by plasticcraq would be fantastic all on its own, but it being shot in Hawaii just ups the awesome level in a big way.

When you add the the photography by Photocyclone, it’s seriously kickass.

Head after the break to see more pictures.

star trek cat

When you’re fostering a kitten in the month of October, I think it should be a rule that you have to put said kitten into a costume. Instagram user and foster pet mom shadowkatt is making sure her charge is prepared for Halloween in this wonderful Star Trek costume. The kitten is the amazing LeVar Purrton, also known as Geordi La Forge. This is too adorable for words.

The ancient Egyptians left us hieroglyphics that show how they lived, but these hieroglyphics tell a different story. All of our modern time travel devices have found their way into the past and the Egyptians seem to be taking it all in stride, except for the poor DeLorean.

downtown abbey costume

Downton Abbey is full of elegant costumes, but Rob Cockerham didn’t go for any of the gentlemen’s outfits. He went bigger – he dressed like the actual Downton Abbey. As in the estate. It shouldn’t be a surprise; this was the man who dressed as a Disneyland map last year.

As far as the construction was concerned, he made a miniature of the grand house from foam board. Then he covered it in printed photos of Highclere Castle (the real life version of Downton). I have to say the finished product looks rather grand.

sexy middle earth costumes 1

Each Halloween brings new ridiculous batches of “sexy” costumes. Seemingly everything must be stripped down to scraps to show as much skin as possible. Artist MJ Alexander, a.k.a. Snartha, applied the trend to Middle-earth and came up with some pretty hilarious costumes. I’d actually wear the sexy Tower of Barad-dûr one pictured above.

stirling

We’ve featured Lindsey Stirling in the past with her violin tributes to Star Wars, Legend of Zelda, and Skyrim, but this time she’s doing something a little different. The song is called Roundtable Revival and it’s from her latest album, Shatter Me. In the video, Stirling and her violin are duking it out against some guitar-playing bandits with plenty of steampunk cowboy style.

See the video after the break.

1d98_portal_chell_romper

If you’re fan of handheld portal devices, science and droll robot humor, then you’ll definitely love this officially licensed Portal Chell romper. It’s absolutely ideal for both science experiments of a dubious nature or cosplaying. Oh! I was also just told there might be cake in the pockets. Check the pockets!

Note: Just checked. No cake. The cake is a lie.
