Forget that white sheet, Halloween costumes are no longer about the classics. People are taking a lateral approach to their costume creativity, tapping into popular culture (as the following examples will show). This in turn must surely demonstrate the influence popular culture has on an age-old tradition, and that retailers may be missing out. Add a dash of twisted/geek humor and you've got yourself a costume that people will never forget! (the last few images may be a little disturbing for some)...

Wow, didn't see this one comming. They got in touch with me last night and said they'd like to do a Google illustration of i10...I couldn't refuse! It should become active very soon early November for about 3 hours...can't wait! Watch this space (or rather, watch Google's).

Well I'm just blowing my own trumpet really, but after looking through the November issue of Creative Review, I came across this ad for D&AD (the charity you pay to be part of)...similar to my DIY D&AD pencil...those darn copycats! (he says with sporting humor). Theirs takes 9 minutes to complete, mine takes 5. Although the concept may not be completely new, you saw it here first!

Seems like this rather naughty mistake(?) in the Budweiser ads went unnoticed...the printed it again in a mag a few weeks later. Subliminal advertising is getting less subliminal? Tsk Tsk, what happened to good ol' SEX spelt in Pepsi cans, ice cubes and stars above Simba? Bud ad posted in Photoshopdisasters.
