Not that you needed any more reminders, but Halloween and its potentially costume-requiring festivities are just around the proverbial bend.

Do you have an outfit that makes you look like something you're totally not yet? If not, now might be a good time to start looking for ideas.

For example, Evilmadscientist has full instructions on how to convert a simple black (or if you're a Batman action figure collector, any color really) umbrella into a highly-functional Batsuit...of sorts.

Yeah, it's not really a Batman costume as much as a regular bat getup, but there is an important costume deco detail to be gleamed from the garment.Black Bolt of the Inhumans is notorious for his Chinese fan-like underarms, making this costume tech a pretty good fit for the king of Marvel's silent king.

Is his real name actually Blackagar Boltagon? Now I know what I'm naming my future cat.
