Only #7 subby? There's a whole month of nightmares in there.

Some of them look like creatures from episodes of Dr. Who.

What can I say, I have a strong constitution. Those eyeball people are just freaky though.

I think these are cool because back in the day you couldn't go out and get mass manufactured costumes. These people made these and they're awesome. When they showed up for their Halloween parties, they didn't have 4 other people wearing the same costume because they all shopped at Wal-Mart

Note: do not click on flavor wire links on iphone. They have a bastard rape overlay that requires closing the page to navigate away from and have multiple pop ups and loadins.

That's a pretty good Ka D'Argo cosplay, but I don't get who the chicks are supposed to be. Maybe he just hooked up with some Mushroom Kingdom cosplayers?

You mean just the girls? Cause that doesn't look like near enough Duggers.

I refuse to believe we live in a world where NO ONE has ever named their middle school band Nightmare Boner.

Some of those, like the cock, look like stage production costumes. The Japanese airplane looks like it came from a fashion show.

our best song was 'cold bloody turd on a wet paper plate', which was an epic 14-minute noodle/thrash session, which featured primarily spoken-word lyrics by our singer about the time he crapped a turd roughly the same size and firmness as an american football.

Burt Reynold's car movies went downhill after the first Smokey and the Bandit, and only recovered when he decided to just not give a cluck. Oh, and invest in a blonde with big tits.

One costume is a postmodern take on eschewing positivism through antagonistic fetishization of forward-thinking symbolism and rigorous challenging of aesthetic mores implying an impactful yet jingoistic approach, haggard at facing yet another domestified imbroglio.

The other is some jackass with a mangled mop.

I, too, approve of Number 6 and boobie eyes.

But there aren't any frightening costumes here. The rat-heads may be the worst, but they're hardly nightmare worthy.

You want creepy?

Teh Googles fail me... (Image should be here)

...but for a good $2,500 (in 2005/6 IIRC) you could buy a full-blown battery-powered animatronic head of Venom or Carnage that had over 500 servo motors in it. The tongue (on Venom) would retract into a tube near the throat, and by squinting your eyes, green drool would drip onto the lower jaw of the mask and coat the tongue. For Carnage, it had little latex pseudopods that would writhe depending on what muscles you were contracting and releasing.

You had to order it in advance by six months.

No, no I'm pretty sure those cat people near the end, the rat people, and one or two of the others are going to feature in a nightmare for me. Perhaps not tonight, this week, or even nextmonth....but for my next one, yes, they will be there. And by that time I will have forgotten all about this thread and wake up going "WTF am I THAT twisted in the head? How did those items pass through the sieve that is my unconscious?"

/average about a nightmare every other year. The wake up screaming and crying kind.
