Life Imitates Art in Banksy Painting Halloween Costume

One of the reasons I’ve not “celebrated” Halloween for the past couple of years is that I have zero imagination when it comes to creating the very-much-expected mind blowing party costume, while everyone around me is some kind of fucking costume designing genius. The picture above is an example of the type of cleverness with which I just can’t compete. Flickr user George Schnakenberg painted his clothing and a wrapped bouquet of flowers to create the necessary impression of being the Banksy painting “Love is in the Air” when properly posed against a wall. Sheer genius. See George’s photos of the steps taken to create such an authentic costume at this link. Great job, George!

Halloween Zombie Mistaken for Murder Victim

Mon Oct 29, 8:48 AM ET

BERLIN (Reuters) – Passengers on a German train mistook a Halloween reveler dressed up as a gore-covered zombie for a murder victim and called the police.

The 24-year-old man fell into a drunken slumber on his way home from a Halloween party in Hamburg, police in the northern town of Bad Segeberg said on Monday.

Believing his hands and face were smeared with blood, passengers alerted police after getting no response from him.

A first aid team called to the scene soon cleared up the confusion. Police told the man to remove his make-up after which he was allowed to continue his journey.

Bad Segeberg is in a rural area and Halloween isn’t very well known there,” police spokeswoman Silke Tobies said. “So people weren’t expecting anyone to be dressed up on the train.”
