The Costume Not Found

This tee-shirt is a shabby excuse for no costume at all. This play on "404 Not Found," the standard HTTP response code indicating the server could not locate the requested web page, is as transparent as Saran Wrap. Still, this little boy and/or his parents are very clever. All they need now is some place on his person for the keyboard and mouse.

This popular, 3-D combination puzzle was invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture, Erno  Rubik. Originally called the Magic Cube, more than 50 million have been sold world wide. This cube has now seeped into the magic of Halloween, as the little girl below illustrates.

All of the above promise fun under the autumn sun and may make you the only one on your block to don one of these outfits.  But even if you aren't, it's the show that counts and the effort to think outside that conventional creepy costume box. Be different this year. Leave Dracula and Napoleon in the closet and bring out colorful fanciful figures from the worlds of technology, anime and cosplay. The sky's the limit provided that you dare to look up.

Happy Halloween.
