1. 31 days of Halloween: Immortan Joe and War Boy makeup tutorials — PLUS this year’s top costumes

This is one of those links that is to promote a website -- in this case Wholesale Halloween Costumes -- but the tutorials are cool enough to deserve a link. We all know Mad Max will be a big Halloween and cosplay favorite this year, and here';s who to make yourself a War Boy or Immortan Joe -- I guess to be a Sexy Furiosa all you need is some black eyeliner. The Joe costume is especially clever ..."you won't believe how they made his teeth!" I'm a total loser when it comes to crafting costumes -- I like dressing up but fabricating is far beyond my ken or skills, so I'm always impressed with anyone who can figure this stuff out.

3. Scary Stories, Costumes, Halloween by Morgan Mandel

I wonder if any of you have written a scary story that's already out or coming out in time for Halloween. Or, maybe you've read one that you enjoyed in a gruesome sort of way. (g)

If so, please tell us something about it here in the comment section to get us in the proper frame of mind for celebrating the holiday.

Or, maybe you're going to a Halloween party, and you'd like to describe your costume. You're welcome to do that as well.

PS - Here's Rascal in her not-that-great pirate costume from last year. We're hoping to think up a better one for her for the Halloween party at Bentley's Corner Barkery next Thursday, but the DH (Good Paul) and I are very lacking in the creative department where costumes are concerned.

7. Coupon Sherpa's Top Halloween Costume List

An oil-spilling CEO; a serial killer in mourning; and a tie-dyed rainbow meme -- the Halloween costumes cache for 2010 is vast. Faithfully imitating hip and colorful cultural icons is a stellar way to stand out at any party.

To help transform average Joe's, Jane's and groups into pop-culture icons, CouponSherpa.com has compiled two lists: 20 plus-size Halloween costumes and 30 trendy getups. Along with a healthy dose of tongue-in-cheek humor, most can be made with items found around the home or at a local thrift shop.

Our list of 2010's hottest costumes includes:

  • Vuvuzela Guy/Gal (World Cup Fan) - Remind partygoers of the world's most annoying instrument by stringing a series of the plastic horns together, hanging them around your neck and wearing your favorite team's colors.
  • Betty White (Comeback Queen) - This riff on a classic old-lady costume can be spiced up with second-hand sports trophies. Adorn them with labels like "Betty White: MTV Best Kiss Award."
  • Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock (The New Ro-Sham-Bo)- The concept is simple: Grab some friends and decorate white t-shirts with your chosen symbol from the quirky "Big Bang Theory" game. Don't become separated or run the risk of looking absolutely lame.
  • Tony Hayward (BP CEO) - Sport a yachting outfit and carry a black, oily substance to randomly spill on unsuspecting revelers. Afterwards, deny all allegations and mumble things like, "I want my life back!"
  • Old Spice Guy (Advertising Phenomenon) - Isaiah Mustafa's musk-scented manly-man is a cinch if you have washboard abs and a deep, sexy voice. Wrap yourself in a towel and carry a bottle of Old Spice. (Or paint a t-shirt with abs and fake it.)
