Well, here's something you don't see every day, tiki mugs of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters.

Choose the form of the Destructor, and hopefully this jolly giant marshmallow man pops in your head, and hand.

Mom crochets badass glow-in-the-dark Slimer costume for her son

Crochetverse's Stephanie Pokorny is putting all us moms to shame with the crocheted Halloween costumes she's made for her six-year-old son Jack. Recently her all-yarn Predator costume made the rounds and now she's back with this glow-in-the-freaking-dark Slimer costume. (You may remember when Jack was two, she made an adorable E.T. costume for him.)

Here's a look at her son in the Predator costume:

And here he is in the Slimer costume:

Also, get this, she freehand crochets her costumes. That means she doesn't use a pattern. If you know anything about crocheting, you'll appreciate what an incredible feat this is.
