Submissions ranged from the ironically funny Blue Screen of Death to whippin' it good with Devo; all creative, all completely homemade.

Calling all crafty DIYers with just a naughty twist of scary! Next Wednesday is Halloween, and we want to spotlight your best DIY Halloween costumes so we can rip them off for our own party. Anything from cute to somewhat disturbing is fair game, as long as it's homemade. The more clever, easy and cool it is, the better. Impress us! Email your high res costume digital photo to [email protected] with the subject line DIY Halloween Costume. Ideally, your photo will be 600 pixels wide so we can admire the details of your handiwork, and you'll include information on how you made it, with a materials list and construction details. We'll publish the best submissions this weekend in preparation for the big day. Have fun and get to digging up those great costume pics!

You showed us your go bags, and frankly, they were fantastic. But many of you pointed out that the whole go bag business seemed overwhelming—that you're minimalists who've stripped down your needs to whatever you can fit in your pockets. So for next week's show and tell, we want to see what you're packing in your pockets. Photo by janerc.
