Every Halloween I attempt to carve a simple, smiley-faced pumpkin, and you know what happens? It never turns out how I want it to look. The smile’s totally off every time–it looks like the pumpkin took a hockey puck to the face. But this year is going to be different. Halloweencostumes.com has a bunch of free pumpkin printable stencils that you can use when you’re carving your pumpkin including the Captain America logo, the House Stark sigil, the Ghostbuster logo and more. The best one is the Luigi death stare though. So go on and start carving some nerdy pumpkins!

This dress was made for Chocolate Week UK and, as you might have guessed, it’s made entirely of chocolate. Caroline McCall, wardrobe designer for Downton Abbey, created this tasty wonder in an Art Deco style over the course of three months using 132 pounds of chocolate. It looks incredible, but I’d imagine you’d have to avoid the sun like a vampire or risk it all melting into a pile of goo.
If you have little ones, making sure they have a healthy, balanced breakfast to start their day off right is very important. It helps if they have some fun at breakfast time too. That’s why you should definitely check out this Egg-a-Matic Boiled Egg mold, which transforms boring boiled eggs into cool little scary skulls. It’s pretty simple to use: basically, all you do is boil an egg, peel it, place it into the mold and cool it. You’ll have a whole mess of grinning eggy skulls in practically no time!

Here’s a new one. This video game by Bossa Studios has you carefully moving a piece of bread around a room. It’s supposed to be all part of its quest to become toast, and from the trailer it looks rather perilous. It falls into a toilet, wields a giant knife, and goes for a spin on a ceiling fan—all while you control each of its four corners to move it along. Who needs zombie games when you can play as the walking bread?

Aisle seven. It was actually really easy. Took forever to stack them though.
When DeviantArt user EmpressofSquee, a.k.a. Melissa, got inspired to make a Doctor Who pumpkin for Halloween, she didn’t go with the usual approach. Instead of carving the exterior of the TARDIS onto a pumpkin, she turned it into the TARDIS control room. It looks pretty awesome, and I bet it looked even cooler when she added a glow stick for lighting.
Fall is when we pumpkin all the things, including this poor truck which had a 1200-pound pumpkin dropped on its roof. It all happened at the Conneaut Lake Park Pumpkin Festival in Pennsylvania. Why? Because this is America and we love the smashy smashy.

Wait! Don’t eat these apples! They’re poison… oh, wait. No, they’re not poisonous. They’re just made to look terribly deadly. Actually, it’s homemade caramel apple with some black gel food coloring added in. They look great and will make a fun treat for any Halloween party.
