Halloween Round-Up: Wallpapers And Tutorials

Advertisement

The Halloween is coming. The preparations are running. Pumpkins are being carved. And skeletons are being packed out from the closets. Since you probably want to set a perfect mood for your coming Halloween party, you might want to set up the party on your weblog as well. So if you are planning on some little redesign you might need some Halloween icons. Besides, what is the Halloween without a scary Halloween wallpaper on your desktop or some fancy decoration for your laptop?

To help you to set the scary mood we’ve decided to present some of the most beautiful wallpapers, icons, Halloween art works, modding methods, costumes, recipes and tutorials for your tuesday’s party. Furthermore we’d like you to collect the best Halloween logos you’ll find in the Web over the next week and you can change the Smashing Magazine logo as well.

Please notice that all images can be clicked.

    Halloween and websites usually don’t match….. there are way too many people that dislike the thought of it because of their backgrounds and religion. Other than that it usually give a designer a little challenge to use in their spare time

    I think you guys need to revisit your .htaccess, as all I am seeing is a bunch of “Bandwidth stealing forbidden!” messages.

    Hands-down the scariest game I’ve ever played. Silent Hill, Doom 3, Resident Evil…all were NOTHING after playing Fatal Frame.

    This design is incredible! You definitely know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
