You know you hate showing up to the Halloween party with that lame generic pirate costume. We all do, but we all end up doing it.
Then there’s those of us who want to make the coolest, most unique costume ever. But we never do, because, let’s face it, we just don’t have the time.
Your solution, then, just may be these amazing just-add-iPhone costumes from Digital Dudz. You buy the mask or shirt, download a free app, and you’re suddenly the best costume at the party. Check out the video below to see how it all works.
We posted all about NASA engineer Mark Roper’s gruesome, iPhone-augmented Halloween shirts last year. Since then, Mark has quit his job at NASA to focus on Halloween. The result is more designs and, even better, both an improved t-shirt and a horribly gruesome effect worthy of being designed by someone who worked on the Mars Curiosity rover.
The rocket scientist (yup, he kinda really is) behind last year’s dual-iPad Halloween trick is back at it again. Only this time, having the best Halloween costume in the neighborhood won’t require two iPads — just an iPhone (or Android phone), a special t-shirt and some duct tape. And the results are really, really cool.
If you’re the type of person who likes to look like a complete fool for Halloween, rather than attempt to look remotely scary, then we have the perfect costumes for you: those crazy little critters from Angry Birds.
Rovio’s Angry Birds franchise is by far the most successful game title to make it in the App Store. The game has been downloaded in its various forms over 350 million times, and there’s all kinds of Angry Birds merchandise out there to buy.
So, what’s next for the money makers at Rovio? You guessed it: Halloween costumes.
Good news: you may already have the black mock-neck, 501s, New Balance sneakers and an iPod Touch in your wardrobe. Bad news: any costume you have to explain a few times until everyone is too drunk to care isn’t your best bet.
