You can get adaptive Halloween costumes for differently-abled kids at Target

Come Halloween, more kids will be able to find a costume that fits thanks to Target's new adaptive collection.

There are tag-free, flat-seamed unicorn and shark onesie-style costumes for children who have sensory disorders. Both are designed so that individual pieces, like wings, fins, and/or tails, can be removed to ensure comfort.

There are also two wheelchair-friendly costumes to choose from, a pirate and a princess. Each boasts back openings to make dressing easier. Plus, Target has made wheelchair covers for both the princess and pirate costumes, so everything is in theme. The princess gets a carriage and the pirate gets a ship.

Parents: feel free to ignore the specific gendering of these costumes!

The artist behind these spellbinding witch hats almost stopped making them after her first one

These stunning felted-wool witch hats are the handiwork of a Kentucky-based fiber artist named Kate.

The world of fantasy felted creations is her full-time job now. On top of creating them, which she sells in her shop Felt Wicked Art, she also teaches felting workshops all over the United States and offers downloadable tutorials to would-be hat makers. But she writes that she nearly gave up after making (and selling) her first hat at a craft fair:

I made a few "normal" hats before making my very first witch hat. It would be unrecognizable today as my style, with just a few wrinkles and some embellishments. At that point it was really more of an experiment and I was actually a little self-conscious of it. I took it to a craft fair though and it to my surprise it sold that day. It was a relief that someone else thought it was interesting too, as some part of me still just wasn't sure. And I almost didn't make any more. I didn't want to go through that vulnerable process of making something unique and then asking people to give me money for it. In the end though I just couldn't stop myself from making another one, and then another one, not necessarily because I even wanted to sell them but just because I loved the hats so much! I'm glad I stuck with it."

We're glad you did too!

Kate's bewitching hats are available through her Etsy shop and her website. Read the rest

Using science to fine-tune your fake blood recipe

Blood is complicated: it changes texture, color and thickness depending on where it's flowing from and how fast. Though you can make a convincing fake blood with water, food coloring, flour and corn syrup, getting the proportions right depends on a scientific understanding of the context in which your fake blood is appearing.

Make silly noises and fight Kirk in your own Gorn mask

I had forgotten how goofy the monster noises were in the epic Kirk vs Gorn battle. With this excellent mask and a few groans you too could rough up Starfleet's more daring Captain.

Evidently you'll need to make your own body suit, but the mask looks nicer than the actual prop.
