I saw these Star Wars light saber lamps online recently and really wanted one for my sci-fi-themed office. Unfortunately, I couldn’t justify spending $65 on it – and even if I could, they’re not actually out yet. Every place I have looked has them sold out or not available yet. But… could I make one?

Alexa Westerfield shares a tutorial on her blog, The Swell Life, to make these bloody pumpkins. I love the vampire bite.
I had big plans to do a Halloween costume round-up *before* Halloween to give you all fabulous and geeky ideas for creating your own costumes. Life keeps getting in the way of blogging, but because I love you all, I’ve thrown together some recent finds. If you’ve seen anything recently that I’ve missed, post a comment with a link!
