For those of you that have just started browsing instructibles you picked the best time of year. Halloween is the holiday for makers and around this time of year Maker oriented sites or overflowing with cool and creative content. Halloween is a holiday where everyone gets to be a maker. Some people go to the extreme and some stay easy but they all get in the spirit. I when I think of making on Halloween two major examples come to mind. In high school I had a friend who’s dad would always take off the two days before Halloween and get the house ready. He would meticulously plot every detail of the house, and enlist all his son’s friends to help so he could achieve perfection. He worked all month for that one night. This year as Halloween approached many people on my floor had no idea what they wanted to be. We decided to go to goodwill as a floor to see what we could find. We had four of us in the group so our two ideas were the news team for Anchorman or the Wolfpack form the Hangover due to a lack of suits at goodwill we picked the Wolfpack. We bought what we needed at goodwill, but the costume was far from over. We spent the next week perfecting our costumes and building little props. As I looked around on Halloween weekend I saw a lot of creative and homemade costumes that beat many of the store bought costumes. So next year be a maker for Halloween.
