It Takes Two: ‘Get Me Outta This Cage!’ Halloween Costume

Get Me Outta This Cage Halloween Costume At a loss for Halloween costume ideas? Then grab your best bud (or someone who’s in the same boat in the costume department) and team up for an unusual collaborative Halloween get-up that’ll turn heads and even elicit a few laughs: the Get Me Outta This Cage costume. Technically, it’s just one costume, but you’ll need two people to achieve the full effect. One guy will be in the gorilla suit, while the other one plays the, well, caged human.

Neither can probably keep the charade going throughout the night–carrying an adult dude isn’t exactly easy on the arms, and sitting in that cage all cramped up can make you cramp up–but it’s definitely fun while it lasts. There’s another version of the costume where an abominable snowman takes the place of the gorilla.

The costumes are available online starting at $158.

Adorably Horrifying: Kittens and Sloths Make Slittens

Slittens

Got a case of the Monday blues? Then head on over to Slittens and turn that frown upside down. No, that’s not a link to a gallery of adorable kittens or baby animals (although checking those out isn’t a bad idea either.) Rather, you’ll find yourself starting at photo after photo of a new breed of animals called slittens. Okay, so they might look freaky at first glance, but they’ll eventually grow on you.

What are slittens?, you might ask. I’ve never heard of them before. Well, they’re basically what you get when kittens and sloths come together–not naturally, of course, but by the wonders of PhotoShop.

Eton Blackout Buddy Flashlight Runs On Nothing But Water

Eton Blackout Buddy H2O

 

When it rains, it pours. And when there’s a blackout, well, that’s seemingly the only time when you seem to have misplaced all of your batteries… batteries which you could have otherwise used to power up your flashlight. The good news is that there’s an alternative torch by Eton called the Blackout Buddy H2O.

Its name gives a clue when it comes to what it needs to power up, and it ain’t batteries. Yep, you got that right: this handy flashlight needs nothing but water to run. Just put the Blackout Buddy into a cup that’s filled with water and boom, you’ve got light. It can provide up to 72 hours of illumination, which should hopefully be more than enough. The best part? It retails for only $10.

Digitsole Warms Your Soles From the Inside

Digitsole

 

Winter is coming. If you’re not keen on laying socks or wearing boots to keep your toes from freezing off, then here’s something you might want to get: the Digitsole. It looks like those insoles that you put into shoes that are slightly loose to improve the fit, or into footwear that causes discomfort to your heel or soles. This particular one, however, warms them up instead.

The Digitsole isn’t the first heating insole in the market, but it’s the first that you can control with your smartphone. With a few tapes, you’ll be able to keep your feet warm at the temperature you want. Aside from that, it also keeps track of the distance you’ve walked and the calories you’ve burned in the process.

It’s available online for $149.

Ditch Your Head This Halloween: Alien Mind Control Halloween Mask

Alien Mind Control Halloween Mask

This mask wins hands-down against any other Halloween mask out there in the market. It’s strange, it’s creepy, and it’s all sorts of gross– in short, it’s the perfect mask for you if you want to win any awards this Halloween. A commandeering, noseless alien occupies the space where your head normally is, holding controls that presumably allow it to control your headless, bloody body.

The mask is foam-filled, so you don’t have to worry about the alien’s butt getting in your face when you’ve got this on.

Never Ties Shoelaces Again With Zubits Magnetic Shoe Closures

Zubits magnetic shoe closures

Why tie shoelaces when you don’t have to? You won’t have to worry about your shoelaces getting untied ever again with Zubits. It’s a magnetic shoe closure that works with your existing laces to make lacing up infinitely faster– which makes sense, since no actual tying is involved. All you have to do is thread the laces into Zubits, cut off the excess lace (how long or how short you’d like your laces to be depends on you), and snap it closed. It’s that simple.

When you’re ready to slip your shoes off, just push your foot forward to break the connection. The downside is that they might not hold up to rigorous activity or sports (note the keyword there: might), but you could always give it a go to test its limits yourself.

Ewok Heels: The Force is With These Furry Footwear

Ewok Heels

There’s nothing cute or cuddly about Stormtroopers, but all the cuteness you’ll ever need can be found in Endor’s forests, where the Ewoks thrive. Those teddy-bear like creatures can melt the coldest of hearts–well, except for the likes of Darth Vader, that is–and now you can wear ‘em on your feet.

Not actual Ewoks, mind you, but Ewok-inspired heels that look oh-so-adorkable. They look comfy enough and are as furry as you would expect them to be. Not to worry though, as no actual Ewoks were harmed in the making of these shoes.

The Great Shark Knife: Looks Good, Cuts Through More Than Just Water

Shark Knife

 

So this is the shark knife. The things that you can do with it are limited, but the awesomeness of how it looks strapped onto your arm might just make up for it. The knife features an array of razor sharp blades arranged and positioned this way and that. Clearly, its maker valued aesthetics more than function and safety, but that’s probably the whole point of coming up with something like the shark knife in the first place. If the wearer isn’t careful, it looks like he’s walking away with a cut or two care of his very own knife…

You can’t buy a shark knife, but you can make your own.

Anti Tagging App Glitches Your Face Out So You Can’t Be Tagged

Anti Tagging

How many times has social media screwed up your work and personal life? From that drunken night you can’t remember anymore to someone’s bachelor party, there are just some things that are best kept private. Unfortunately, there’s Facebook and their face recognition algorithm that makes it easier for people to tag other people in their photos, making some supposedly-private moments public.

You won’t be able to prevent others from doing this in the future, but you can make a statement with Anti Tagging. It’s an app that detects people’s faces in photos–and glitches them out so no system can recognize them, much alone tag them. Continue Reading
