I don’t think there is a more fitting costume for this very sinister looking guy…he looks like he is about to pull out a gun and let you have it. Which is why he is perfect to dress up as Nick Fury, who seems like he is having a perpetualy bad day. #NickFurry
My gift to you to celebrate Halloween!
In my opinion, one of the most overlooked parts of the Halloween Party is the music. Music sets the mood, and can turn a good party into a great party. It breaks the ice, loosens people up, and (especially with themed music) can really pump up the fun factor.
I know what you’re thinking, you bought a couple of discount CD’s at PartyCity, and so you’re covered right? There are so many cheapo “scary” music CD’s filling the stores it’s easy to get seduced by the convenience and forget that it really is better to make your own music compilations than to “torture” your guests with 18 different types of creepy door sounds.
But it takes time right? Well, consider this my Halloween gift…I have put together a Top 100 Halloween Songs Playlist just in time for Halloween! Happy Haunting!
About the music:
A couple of notes:
This compilation is a mix of old favorites and new, there are some really funny campy songs as well as some darker ones mixed in with the traditional Halloween staples. This list is recommended for an adult Halloween Party and there is no particular order…just shuffle and play however, you may need to make a Grooveshark.com account to play it (it`s free)!
Here is a sampling from the compilation:
1. Thriller – MJ
2. Ghostbusters – Ray parker JR
3. Witchy Woman – The Eagles
4. Don’t Fear the Reaper – Blue Oyster Cult
5. Everyday is Halloween – Ministry
6. Werewolves of London – Warren Zevon
7. Living Dead Girl – Rob Zombie
8. Monster Mash – Bobby Picket and the Crypt Keepers
9. Red Right Hand – Nick Cave
10. Sympathy for the Devil – Rolling Stones

In this video [Jack] will show you how to take a garden gnome and a solar light to create a FrankenGnome that is sure to creep out your friends and neighbors. This Hackaday original video is the first in a new series of videos that we will now be posting on a weekly basis.
You’ll notice a few symbols at the beginning of these videos. These symbols are there to help you understand what the video is all about. In the upper left corner, we have the skill level. These will range from 1 for very basic projects to 4 for highly advanced projects. The upper right corner breaks the video into two categories. The first category is ‘feature adding’. In these videos we will be taking off-the-shelf items and modifying them to do something new. The other category is ‘skill building’. In these, we will be exploring different topics…

This one is so easy that a zombie could do it.
Pick up a half dozen or so solar lights. I find that this display looks best when you put them in large groups. You can line your driveway, light up your graveyard or porch without the worry of burning down the neighbourhood.
Look for great deals at garage sales and church sales. Usually the lanterns have seen better days but the light works fine, and since we are throwing that part away…it’s perfect. I got my box of a dozen lights for 5 bucks!
Pop the light mechanism out of the lantern and place in your chosen plastic halloween prop. You can glue it into place if you like.
Skulls and pumpkins were used for this tutorial but you can use anything really. The dollar store is filled with plastic cheesy props that take on a whole different look when illuminated, so get creative and light up the dark!
This fantastic tutorial makes it easy to make expensive looking cloche jars with dollar store items and empty soda bottles. A cloche or bell jar would be a fantastic addition to your spooky apothecary display. Victorians would use the bell jar to create amazing mini terrariums in their garden rooms.

These incredible and dramatic eyelashes attach to the face rather than the eyes. This brilliant tutorial shows you step by step how to create this amazing effect with liquid latex and a black permanent marker. This would be perfect for many types of costuming: Zombie, Dead Bride, Ghost etc…
