How to Print Your Own Halloween Mask

If you're like us -- busy as blogging beavers can be -- then you might have totally forgotten that it's Halloween this Wednesday, which means you've got to get a costume ready pronto, if only to keep those Halloween revelers off your back for not coming to the party (or work) prepared.

If you're got a decent color printer, you're in luck, because Microsoft has posted some nifty directions on printing and making your own mask-on-a-balsa-wood-stick, though we think the first line of the how-to is Halloween-SCARY:

"Imagine the perplexed looks of the neighborhood children when they come to the door and see you wearing a mask of your child's face."

(Totally off the wall, in a good way! You're totally weird, Microsoft, and we love it!)

The site goes on to suggest possibly going as your pet or spouse -- also kind of creepy/hilarious -- but we think most people will probably go as something more traditional, like, say, R2-D2? If so, check out the various 'Star Wars' character templates, which you can print out and use as masks, on the Lego site.

Got any other ideas for printable masks? If so, share 'em down below, 'cause I'm sure we're not the only people still trying to figure out who or what to dress up as on Halloween night.
