Costume Ideas

Amanda gave some great ideas for Halloween costumes, and Michael provided a few tips on throwing a spook-tacular bash; now it’s my turn. Inkers have always had quite a bit of Halloween spirit, both with pumpkin decorating and a fantastic turnout of folks in costume for our annual contest. And Inkers aren’t afraid to get creative…

This year, we had Antoine Dodson, the cast of Glee, a vampire’s Facebook page, Snap Crackle & Pop, and Roseanne Barr, just to name a few! You can see a few photos from the festivities below, but be sure to check out our facebook page for even more great photos. Read more –>

Halloween always gives me the chills. But not for the most obvious reasons – ghouls, ghosts, cavities. No, I’m always terrified of coming up with a good costume. This fear coupled with my tendency to procrastinate usually lands me with a sheet and two eye holes. But you don’t have to end up like me. Instead, design your own “costume!” by creating Halloween T-Shirts. Read more –>

I trick or treated right up to the very end, right to that cusp where homeowners started to worry about whether they should open the door to the 6-foot-tall Care Bear standing on their stoop. Last year, I didn’t go…but I did have fun! My friends and I banded together to re-create childhood glee with what is now an annual Halloween Block Party.

We have bobbing for apples, a great costume contest, and spook-tacular treats.   So I don’t have to give up wearing costumes after all…which works out well because I don’t know where else I would wear my faux fur bunny suit…and Halloween can continue to be one of my favorite holidays.

If you’re considering a Halloween party, try your hand at branding your soiree with a scary t-shirt for your guests.  I suggest using fonts from the scary section for a gothic look, and keywords like “skeleton,” “zombie,” or “ghosts” to find lots of great clipart.

Still need a costume? Check out Amanda’s upcoming post for a few quick and easy ideas.
