Halloween Gaming: Now You Can Play Tetris on a Pumpkin with Pumpktris

Pumpktris

Oh, the things people come up with in the name of fun. Tetris was probably the most overplayed game on my old NES Famicom, so to see it resurrected and playable on an actual pumpkin is, well, kind of awesome.

But this is no ordinary pumpkin. Dubbed by its makers as the ‘Pumpktris’, this pumpkin has been embedded with over 128 LEDS and a board on the inside, which is basically the ‘brains’ of the game. The pumpkin’s stem serves as the joystick which lets you control where you want your Tetris pieces to be positioned. It’s good fun and definitely adds a spooky theme to a classic game.

Too bad it’s game over for good care of Mother Nature in a couple of days (or weeks, tops.) Hit the break for a video of some Pumpktris being played.

You Snooze, You Lose–Your Head, That Is! (Don’t Worry, It’s Just a Prank)

Head Fall Off

Have you ever sneezed so hard that your head fell off? No? Well, here, let me show you.

Looks horrifying, doesn’t it? But don’t worry. As we’ve said earlier, it’s just a prank, and a pretty well-executed one at that. The guy you see who loses his head literally is a magician named Rich Ferguson, who was entertaining scaring the crap out of the passersby at Bubblegum Alley in San Luis Obispo, California. As expected, some people freaked out, others screamed, and a couple of them actually ran for dear life.

It’s pretty hilarious and it’s a fun way to cap off the week–especially if you had a stressful one. Hit the break to check the video out!

World’s Awesomest Mom Mods Her Kid’s Push Car into a Time-Traveling DeLorean

Kid DeLorean

When I was a kid, I wished everyday that I’d get a DeLorean for my birthday. Instead, I got a Barbie doll, but I was still happy anyway. Regardless, I’m still bowling over with envy at little Cooper because he’s going to be riding around in a smashing DeLorean this Halloween, all thanks to his awesome dad mom* named Cory.

Cory probably wanted to make her little boy something extra this Halloween, so why not a DeLorean sort-of replica from Back to the Future? It might not be able to travel back through time, but it has the power to make everyone who sees it (aka. you and me) to go back in time and remember the good old days. And what good old days they were.

Hit the break to check out more awesome pics of Cooper’s modded push car!

‘Ask Me About My Zombie Shirt’ is Perfect for Halloween

Zombie Shirt

Halloween is just a week and a couple of days away. If you don’t have the time to put a costume together, then go for something simple like this (seemingly) basic black tee. People are always saying how you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Well, this time, you shouldn’t judge a shirt by its exterior because sometimes, they might just surprise you.

There’s something special about this ‘Ask Me About My Zombie Shirt’ T-shirt, and that much we’ve made clear in the image above. When everyone starts saying what a killjoy your are by showing up to the party, just point to the text in front and challenge them to ask you about your shirt. When they do, lift your shirt up. Some guys might think that they’re getting lucky since someone’s about to flash them (not!) but by doing so, you’ll instantly turn yourself into a zombie with a bloody mouth.

Pretty awesome right? The shirt retails for $14.99.

eBay Pulls the Plug on an Auction for a James Holmes Rubber Halloween Mask

James Holmes Mask

Terrifying image, isn’t it? That’s not a photo of the real James Holmes though. It’s of some guy wearing a James Holmes rubber mask that was recently put up for auction on eBay. Holmes’ mug is infamously known after footage of him looking blank and indifferent was shown after The Dark Knight Rises shooting in Aurora, Colorado.

eBay user realface13 set a starting price of $500 for the rubber mask, which he described as a truly creepy thing to behold. The listing read:

There is nothing more scary than crawling into James Holmes’ mind and wearing his face. His ‘soul penetrating eyes’ and ‘The Joker’ orange hair makes this mask the most disturbing object you will ever own. Imagine owning the mask of supposedly the most dangerous mass murderer in US history.

The mask didn’t get any bids though. eBay has since pulled it from the site explaining that the mask failed to meet their Offensive Materials policy. You can get a closer look at the mask after the break.

Slutty Halloween Costumes for Your Dog Don’t Look So Slutty After All

Slutty Halloween Costumes

You probably already know that the easiest costumes to do are those that begin with the “slutty” adjective. Just pick any profession, tack the adjective before it, and come to the party dressed in form-fitting clothes that are far too short and skimpy–and you’re all set. As long as you’re doing this type of costume, why not let your canine companion in on the fun with these Slutty Halloween Costumes for your dog?

Your dog will probably hate you for it, but hey, this is one day of the year where you’ll have a perfectly legitimate excuse to dress up your pet in the finest (and weirdest) threads you can find. The thing is, your dog won’t really look “slutty” but it’s the concept that makes the entire thing so incredibly fun and the costumes so oddly creative.

Above, you’ll see a doggy Marilyn Monroe. Adorable, right? Although I have a feeling the chest padding is a tad uncomfortable. Check out more pooches dressed like Snooki, Katy Perry, and Madonna after the jump.

Learn Some Basic Circuitry Skills And Create Some Halloween Fun

By Jonathan Kimak

Every so often there comes around a neat little DIY project that can be both fun and educational. If you don’t know much about circuitry, this halloween project might be the thing that finally moves you from gadget user to gadget maker.

The project is to create a light-sensitive jack-o-lantern that turns itself off during the day and comes alive during the night with two glowing LED eyes. All you need is a phototransistor, several transistors and resistors, LEDs and some AA batteries(plus holder). The detailed list can be found at the Evil Mad Scientists website.

Of course, placing something you just made into a goopy mess of a pumpkin might not be too appealing to you. But you can always buy a fake pumpkin from a craft store so that you only have to do this once but get years of use out of it.
