It toally sucks that Halloween is on a Monday, but at least that gives us FOUR full days to celebrate. While us horror fans have been shunned for years, the internet is proving that everyone is a huge fan of Halloween. It’s sort of like a big kick in the face to the haters, and I love it.
With the holiday landing next Monday, the Web is a buzz with so many random holiday-themed treats that we continue to compile and share with you dear readers. Each [Random Cool] article destroys one of my mornings, but holy great pumpkin is it worth it Charlie Brown.
We kick off this edition of [Random Cool] with the above video that shows what it would be like if Wes Abderson directed Scream. Inside you’ll find all sorts of goodies from how to make horror treats to a pug wearing vampire teeth (it’s actually pretty hilarious). This Flickr user has posted the following image of “The Most Most Famous and Infamous Vampires!” Can you name all of them? Fans can purchase a print at Society 6.
Designer Kim-lan Cornell of Sock Monkey Drawer has released her 2011 line of one-of-a-kind handmade “Spooky Sock Monkeys“.

Meet Aunt Creepy, a woman from Germany who could have used a family member to take her to therapy. “Ortrud, known to her friends as ‘Orty’, has been collecting model clowns for over 15 years, and in that time amassed 2,053 different models. The collection is so large that Ortrud has had to move to a larger flat to accommodate them, and even set up her own museum at her home in Essen, Germany. Ortrud goes to sleep each evening with hundreds of clowns smiling back at her.” Terrifying.
The best party of the year is over and has me jealous beyond belief — at least there’s ncredible photos to document its existence.

For Halloween this year, photographer Tyler Card decided to made a giant “Nikon DSLR Costume“, reports PetaPixel. Not just any DSLR costume, mind you, but a fully functional one. The camera actually takes pictures when the shutter release button is pressed, and the photograph is displayed on the giant LCD screen on the back. The built-in flash also works, and the camera is even capable of triggering Alienbees strobes. The giant camera body is made out of cardboard and a five gallon bucket. A Nikon DSLR was then placed into the camera and connected to the LCD screen and giant shutter button.
Geekologie has discovered a homemade “Crawling R/C Car Zombie“. The way it moves is just…terrifying. I’d love to drive one of this suckers down the street and terrify all the children and their parents — at least until one of them stomps it to death.
