Say hello to the Jack-O’-Lantern R2-D2 for Halloween

It’s Halloween and many people will be carving Jack-O’-Lanterns, but it takes someone like Noel Dickover to create amazing carvings like the R2-D2 we see here. He has created the R2-D2 this year, but there actually are a number of interesting carvings like the Maleficent Dragon and the Death Star, which you can see on Fantasy Pumpkins.

3D printed rat earrings could find room in a Halloween wardrobe

Thankfully, Halloween is near and you can get away with wearing weird stuff such as this in the name of costumes. Come to think of it, they might actually make a good accessory with a well though Halloween costume. Cost $17.

The Predator Halloween costume

It is that time of the year already; carved pumpkins, tricks and treats, awesome costumes and a whole lot of fun. This predator Halloween costume was made by Shawn Thorsson, who spent two months in forging the costume from upholstery foam, liquid latex, and duct tape. LEDs were used for the Predator’s wearable computer while the blades have been made from aluminum. He made the costume back in 2005, but has decided to show it to the internet only recently.

This isn’t Duck Hunt, it’s Vampire Bat Hunt

When the ducks left the 8-bit world, they likely turned to plastic vampire bats, or they are shaped like this to be just in time for Halloween. But have no fear, we still have our infrared gun weapon. Three direct hits on the vampire, and it’s out. The bat can stay in flight for 30 seconds, and flies erratically enough to make shooting it slightly difficult. Live action Vampire Bat Hunt costs $30.
