If you’re still in need of a Halloween costume for next Wednesday, you might be able to whip something up using your iPad or your iPhone, which is guaranteed to impress your friends and family and win costume contests.
Digitaldudz is a Halloween costume site that uses simple designs combined with an electronic device like a tablet to create innovative and unique costumes.
This site combines an iOS device playing an animated app with a printed t-shirt that has strategically placed cutouts or a shirt insert. You attach the device to the shirt, play the app, and it provides an instant costume.
There are impressive options like a beating heart, a creepy skull with lit up eyes, a scary clown, and sweet little pumpkins if you’re looking for something less ghoulish.
The shirts were designed by Nasa engineer Mark Rober, who used two iPads together to create a gaping hole in his chest. His costume went viral last year, inspiring him to develop the shirt site along with the companion apps.
Each shirt will cost you approximately $12, plus shipping. The iWound sells for a bit more at $14.95, but both options are a bargain.
You can still get these awesome shirts before Halloween, as long as you order by Monday, October 29. You will need to get shipping with UPS 2nd Day Air or UPS Next Day Air to get them on time, but if you’re in desperate need of a great costume, it’s well worth the extra expense.
