The Mary Sue’s Most Looked At Posts of 2013

On Tuesday we showed you our most commented on articles of 2013. It was a post full of the most contentious subjects in geekdom today: online and convention harassment, white washing, and, of course, the casting of Wonder Woman in a major movie adaptation.

But chatter is only one way to know that a post grabbed a lot of attention. There’s also views! So here are our 2013 posts that were seen by the most eyeballs. Your eyeballs.

This is the same little guy who got to drive around a DeLorean last Halloween. Cooper’s mom, be my mom. (via Fashionably Geek)

Bloody Good Fun

See The Empire State Building Dancing To “This Is Halloween”

The Empire State Building got spooky last night with a musical light show choreographed by lighting designer Marc Brickman. The light show was synced up to Halloween-y music broadcast over a couple of radio stations. Somehow, I feel like this building is a better dancer than I am, and I resent that.

This Woman Dressed as the Actual Stargate For Halloween

…and the way she did it totally works. A tip of the hat—or a wave in the desert wind of floofy James Spader hair—to Redditor astrobean for this amazing costume. Head over to Reddit for info on how she made it.

Why Not Do It With Some Style?

Disney Men Get The Pop-Culture Halloween Costume Treatment

Ok, we *think* this is Isaiah K Stephens’ last update of Disney characters dressed up as other pop-culture characters from Halloween. After focusing on so many of the awesome Disney women, he decided to focus on the fellas this time around. To equally excellent effect, if I do say so myself. Which is your favorite?

Jack-o’-Lantern Dinosaurs Make Up for That Whole Extinction Thing

You know for about five seconds I was sitting here thinking “I wonder how long it takes to light all the candles and how much of a fire hazard it is” and then I remembered that we have this technology called electricity and LED lights. New York’s Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze is probably up on that.

2-Year-Old Girl Dresses As All Eleven Doctors for Halloween

Todd Kent’s daughter Katie—who in previous years dressed as the Avengers and every color in the Lantern Corps—turns Halloween into Wholoween by dressing as the Doctor. All eleven of them. That little Nine jacket is… wait for it… fantastic.

Just Go With It

Printable Masks Will Help You Be An Orphan Black Clone This Halloween

Just yesterday we brought you 10 fun, last-minute costume ideas from history and pop-culture but if you really don’t think you can pull any of those off by Halloween, here’s your solution. Be a clone! The official Orphan Black tumblr posted these masks, created for them by John Salomone, for your roleplaying needs. I have to admit, being a big fan of Orphan Black, I lament not having a twin so we can realistically cosplay more than one clone at a time. But the tumblr has a few suggestions on what you can do by yourself (or with friends), “Create crazy clone scenarios, speak in different accents, practice your ProClone death glare…. and take a ton of pictures tagged with #OBHalloween to share with #CloneClub!”
