ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Brand sez, "My little girl (age 8) put together her costume this year based on her favorite video game creature: the Minecraft Creeper. I've seen a few creepers this year, but none as good as hers."
Sad Creeper has a candies
SO GOOD! Adorable to the extreme. I really want to make one now.. but I’m a grown-up so it’s not as cute =
Creepers gotta creep.
Also, Thats some nice candy you have there…. ssssssssss
When I was a kid my mom went above and beyond to sew me a Purple Tentacle costume from Day of the Tentacle (and from Maniac Mansion, but that was before my time).
Much neon nylon was involved, and it looked great.
My haloween costumes never made it past the ‘celotape a few black bin-bags together’ and maby ‘buy a cheep mask form the store’. Im glad modern kids are getting some things better then historical kids.
I love how kids are really embracing Minecraft. It’s like digital Lego!
We had a creeper come though our neighborhood last night as well. Thankfully nobody involved thought it was weird when I asked to take his picture :)
Thanks, guys! Elf Princess is thrilled she now gets a Geek Merit Badge.
I’ve put together a DIY for how she created the costume in the event you want to do it for next year.

Seems like creepers were popular this year. My son went as one too.
My kids too! haha ;)
My son probably wouldn’t have wanted to meet her while trick or treating:
yeah, i stayed up all night painting a creeper too!

The Misconception: You believe your opinions and decisions are based on experience and facts, while those who disagree with you are falling for the lies and propaganda of sources you don’t trust.
I recently attended a conference at a luxury hotel in Marina, California where the spa brochure lists services like massage, facials, and, er, shamanic journeys.
In 2006, Vice President Dick Cheney pumped birdshot into a friend's face, simultaneously upping his thug cred while inspiring Lego fan Thom Beckett to depict the scene in plastic bricks.
