People Who Accidentally Found Their Doppelgangers In Museums
When you go to a museum, you expect to see unfamiliar times with unfamiliar people who lived then, right? Well, that isn’t the case here, as these art lovers found out when they’ve stumbled upon their identical doppelgängers lurking in the frames!
Either thanks to a time machine still under wraps somewhere or a sheer accident, these doppelgangers reveal some uncanny similarities between the two subjects, that will leave you guessing, what’s REALLY going on here.
Have you ever had the pleasure to meet your doppelgänger? Tell your stories in the comments below!
An Age Long Gone
I bet this bloated his ego quite a bit. But doesn’t every man secretly wish he was a knight?
Oh my goodness! This is proof that Weird Al is immortal! He’s going to live forever!
A Ginger Samurai?
Wait, was that even possible? I’m so confused!
Henry VIII is back and women better watch out for this doppelganger or he’ll marry you then behead you!
Looking Back At One Another
It’s almost like looking into a mirror!
From An Age Gone By
Even their eyes match one another! How incredible and awesome is that?
Cupid Grown Up
Remember Cupid, this is what he looks like now! Feel old yet?
Still Very Serious
Why do they both look so serious? It’s freaking me out!
He’s Still Fabulous!
He’s still got it! Even his nose looks the same!
Wait, where did his hat go, and why does he look surprised?!
Wait, is he a time traveller?
I wonder if he noticed the resemblance between himself and the painting?
Back To The Future
Where’s his dog gone? I’m sad he’s not there!
I think she’s found her long lost, great (x6) grandma!
Did he know that this painting was here? I loved how he prepared to see it!
Watch out! You don’t want to lose your head again!
Who Wore It Best?
But who wore it better?
Deep In Thought
I wonder what he’s thinking about…
A Classical Haircut
And you just thought his haircut was silly!
But are they a long lost ancestor?
Well This Is Surprising…
How old is that baby?!
Looks like he hasn’t lost that creepy stare just yet!
…What is with that shirt?!
How did they manage to do that?

Just because they’re fictional characters doesn’t mean they’re not capable of “letting themselves go” just like human celebrities. You’re probably lying in bed right now reading this trying to polish off the last two slices of the deep dish Domino’s pizza you knew you shouldn’t have ordered for the second day in a row because you’re too lazy to drive five minutes to the store. I’m just kidding, silly. You look fabulous and don’t let anyone tell you anything different. Now hurry up and order some Thai food, you magnificent bugger.

We all know that Russians love carpets. As far as it’s known the habit of hanging carpets on the wall became a common practice during the Soviet times. The idea behind it is still unclear, but one can only speculate that insulation was the main reasoning. Besides that, Soviet people stocked up valuable carpets as a dowry for their children. Also, in the communal apartments, rugs were used as soundproofing mean. Many people hid wall defects, repairs with the carpets. Some simply used them as decorations. We can assume that this tradition has spread from the East, where the carpets were considered a work of art and a symbol of wealth.
So check out these 20 funny images that show just how far Russian people are prepared to go to show off their rugs and carpets to the world.
The hilarious reasons why you could be locked up in the Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum
The Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum has long been regarded as is most home to some of the craziest people of the 1800s. But what surprising about this place is the reasons that could get you banged up in this nut house between 1864 and 1889.
Check out the list below of the hilarious but genuine and legitimate reasons that could make you a guest at the Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum. From Imaginary female trouble to Suppressed Masturbation, some of these reasons are bordering on insane themselves.
If Animals Had Tinder This Would Be Their Profile Picture
Animal dating is still stuck in the dark ages. Rather than using tinder, they have to actually take the time to meet another animal in public, sniff their parts and and do a mating call. It’s so #lamesville. When are they gonna wake up and realize that the only way to meet properly meet another animal these days is to totally paw right?
Sesame Street’s popular aliens, the Yip Yips always appear in twos, so this is a costume that should be worn with a buddy. It take two people to properly fit one according to this Instructable, so you may as well help each other out and into a great costume!
3. Optimus Prime
Instructables member dannyeurena turned cardboard, duct tape, and hot glue into a satisfyingly authentic Optimus Prime costume. According to the accompanying video, it was comfortable enough to dance in!
4. Death Becomes Her
Evan Booth’s costume for Halloween 2006 seemed to be a nondescript “dude in a wig” until you looked at the GAPING HOLE in his midsection! This was accomplished with a camera in the back of the shirt that recorded a background scene and fed it to a travel-size DVD player in the front that displayed the backdrop. In 2008, artist Nicole Magne used the idea for a costume recreating a scene from the movie Death Becomes Herwhere Goldie Hawn has a hole blown through her body. The creation process is detailed on her blog, and the Instructables version is available if you’d like to try this yourself.
5. Hovering Boba Fett
Linkfilter member Reapre had considered a Rocketeer costume when he hit on the idea of Boba Fett Hovering on a Column of Flame. He used a purchased Boba Fett costume and converted it using a homemade jetpack. The column of flame below hid his legs. Reapre wore platform shoes made from roller blades to make himself several inches taller.
6. Helmet Cat
Flickr user Alida Saxon’s brother put this Helmet Cat costume together at the last minute. The helmet is a basketball painted green, and the fur was salvaged from a stuffed toy. Make your favorite internet meme into a Halloween costume and half the folks you encounter will laugh; the other half will scratch their heads and wonder.
7. The Wild Things
A group of five friends dressed as the monsters plus Max from the Maurice Sendak’s book Where The Wild Things Are for Halloween 2008. Craftster member sjeanette made papier mache heads of the monsters. The eyes glow in the dark! I can’t really tell how one would see while wearing these, but I assume they made a great impression.
Chris Miller made his own Bender costume back in 2005. The eyes moved by a servo controlled by his hands! He was a finalist in a costume contest, but I can’t imagine what costume could beat this.
The Mask of Emotion hides your face but displays emoticons instead. This helmet was created by the Digital Media Design Dept at Hongik University in Korea. What emoticon is shown is controlled by the wearer’s body actions. If you want to make your own, the original website has design specifications and video. It will help if you can read Korean.
Katie Mello of LAIKA House in Portland made this AT-AT Costume for her dog Bones.
Bones has his own Facebook page, where you can see more pictures: in this costume, other clothing, and as nude as other dogs. In fact, there’s a photoset that takes you through the process of building this costume.
Anditron always dresses up for Halloween, but when she was pregnant, she wanted to incorporate her bump without being too traditional. So she made a Death Star costume. Or rather, her round belly was the Death Star, with small x-wing fighters attached. The rest of her was dressed in black. The Darth Vader helmet was incidental, but worked well. Take a look at the Death Ray deployed:
It appears to be some fiber optics and a few light sticks, but the effect is, um, not earth-shattering, but Alderaan-shattering!
13. Coppertone Girl
It’s a logo everyone knows from as far back as we can remember. The little Coppertone girl’s tan line is revealed when her puppy dog pulls on her swim pants. Anna at A. Party Style dressed her adorable daughter in a tan leotard and tights, then reconstructed the backside to reflect the logo, puppy dog and all!
Allison also posted an Instructables guide to recreating this Genie on a Flying Carpet costume one of her friends pulled off. The secret to carrying this around all night is a walker on wheels that supports the carpet!
17. Zombie Cat
Cyriak Harris and Sarah Brown made an animation featuring zombie cats called Meow. Dawn Weast and Suzy Gruber were inspired by the video and made a Zombie Cat costume for Weast’s 5-year-old daughter Bell. The handmade costume is a dead ringer for one of the cartoon cats that gets turned into a zombie.
Amanda Fite was the pregnant zombie that stood out from the crowd at the 2009 Texas Frightmare Zombie Walk. Be assured, it was totally fake. A series of photos give you some idea of the work that went into this costume. See more photos from the 2009 Texas Frightmare Weekend Zombie Walk in Flickr user Ian Aberle’s photo set.
Sam’s brother had a homemade illusion costume that set him in a Port-a-Potty in 2010. Seven-year-old Ben could walk around and “sit” at the same time! The brand name in their area is Honey Bucket, so Ben’s door was labeled the same.
21. Chomping Pacman
Matthew Varas built a Pacman costume a few years ago, and this decided to improve upon the idea by building a Pacman with a Chomping Mouth!The project took six weeks, but as you can see, the results are awesome. See the building process at Make.
22. Robot Couple
Instructables member onebrokenneck made a robot couple for a costume competition. These classic Hollywood-style robots are made of aluminum, but according to the build process at Instructables, you can probably use cardboard instead if you don’t have a metal shop. The arms and legs are dryer ducts, and various LED gizmos were used to give them an electric personality.
Shawn Thorsson has made a bunch of fantastic costumes. He planned a Halo-themed build for Halloween 2008, but then was deployed to Afghanistan. The project was finally completed the next year. Thorsson fabricated armor from the video game world of Halo, painted them in different colors, and dressed his friends as the characters from the Red vs. Blue series. He posted lots of pictures to show you the process.
24. The Birds
A few years ago, redditor CampingIsInTents posted a picture of her Tippi Hedren costume and got a rousing response. The idea references a popular movie, but you won’t see other people wearing it at the same party. She bought the birds, but had to alter the wings to make them just right. The idea has been used by creative costume-makers a couple of times before, even on TV.
Melissa Dunphy made her husband a Krang costume for Halloween 2010. Krang is a cartoon villain who vexes the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The costume required a lot of foam rubber, repurposed electronics, and duct tape. See some still photos at Flickr.
Nicole Magne, who wore a gaping abdominal hole in the Death Becomes Her costume above, made this awesome Marie Antoinette getup a few years ago. Of course, it wouldn’t be so awesome if she hadn’t been decapitated! See the process of building this costume at Etsy.
Instructables member Kaged Konbat made himself into a LEGO Minifig. The head is made from a tube sold as a form for concrete -strong but still lightweight. The wearer sees through the facial features, which are covered with mesh speaker fabric. Your buddy could accompany you as a LEGO brick.
Have you ever looked at a broken umbrella and thought about how it resembles a flailing bat? Lenore at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories made this Umbrella Bat costume out of one umbrella and a hoodie, and posted instructions so you can do the same.
35. Trash Can
This Trash Can costume is also a prank!
When I was a kid there was a guy in our neighborhood that used to jump out of the bushes in a gorilla suit and scare the bejeezus out of us. It was one of my fondest memories of halloween. One year I decided to be that guy.
Unfortunately, I don’t have any bushes. An alternative would be to build a trash barrel disguise. I built the disguise below and then sat in it right on the front lawn. Not one single kid realized that It wasn’t a trash can and I scared so many of them that I lost count.
You might not recognize the name Caterpillar Power Loader J-5000, but surely you remember the mechanical power suit Sigourney Weaver used to fight the alien queen in Aliens. Ben Hallert built this one for Halloween in 2006. Read his story with links to photos and a video. Hallert previously made an APU costume from The Matrix, and a Mech Warrior costume.
37. Rubik’s Cube
Flickr user mcredis built a Rubik’s Cube costume and posted the process in photographs. He wore it to a costume parade in New York, and heard “Can I solve you?” all night long.
38. Flaming Carrot
The Flaming Carrot is one of the more bizarre comic book characters you’ll ever encounter, but it’s the look that makes a great costume, rather than the backstory. RoG posted details on how he contructed this one.
Honus at Instructables posted instructions for making your own, complete with goggles and weapons. The backpack really makes this; I hope it isn’t as heavy as it looks!
41. Big Daddy
Graphic designer Harrison Krix made a costume of the character Big Daddy from the video game Bioshock. This is a work of a serious propmaster. It took seven weeks of sculpting with foam, cardboard, and fiberglass. The finished product, complete with a working drill arm, is a work of art. The post includes many more pictures and a couple of videos of the drill arm in action.
Every year, people amaze me not only with their ideas, but with their talent and dedication at bringing the best costumes to life for Halloween (and other occasions). I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
42. Plastic Army Man
Rebekah Tennis made this costume for her son in 2011. He wanted to be an Army guy, but with a little work and a lot of green paint, he’s a soldier straight out of Toy Story! She then posted the process of creating this costume.
The character Cherry Darling from the movie Planet Terror startled folks when they saw that one of her legs was a machine gun. Then it inspired some women to recreate the scene. Now, if you are a beautiful amputee like Lacey Henderson, who gained note as a college cheerleader a few years ago, you can make hay by cosplaying the character at fan events. Henderson has a webpage with instructions for those who aren’t amputees on how to recreate the Cherry Darling look, and an annual competition is held for the best machine-gun-leg costume.
44. Jack Skellington
DeviantART member Mnemousyne created this super-tall Jack Skellington costume by making a suit that fits over stilts. The head is built over a helmet, making it more stable, but still a bit hard to see from. Her sister is modeling the costume here; Mnemousyne is in the Sally costume.
45. Weeping Angel
The Weeping Angel is a scary character from the Doctor Who episode “Blink.” Livejournal user penwiper337 made this costume of the Weeping Angel to wear at DragonCon. You can follow the process of building it at her blog.
The party was literary-themed, so Heather and David came up with a couple’s costume right out of the novel The Picture of Dorian Grey. Heather is Dorian, of course, and David is aged up and framed to be …his picture! Photograph by Flickr user Jason Adams.
Jeff from Ohio told the story of how he made this mousetrap costume for his 3-year-old daughter. Being trapped is a very good excuse for not walking house to house, but a set of wheels got her there anyway! He cut the wood and mounted it to a wagon, welded on the metal hardware, and made the back half of the mouse to work as a cushion for the child’s back. Adorable!
49 & 50. Bob Ross and the Orbit Gum Lady
Jake Meek said his Bob Ross attire was purchased in the ladies department at a local thrift store, “which I can only assume is where all men’s clothing from the ’70s currently resides.” He’s posing with the Orbit Gum Lady.
51 & 52. The Hamburgler and the Sunmaid Raisins Lady
Here’s that same pair, this time as The Hamburgler and the woman on the Sunmaid Raisins box.
53. The DC Metro
Longtime mental_floss contributor Scott Allen won season tickets to the Washington Wizards for this!
54. The Firefox Logo
You can even dress up as a browser logo. Firefox is the preferred costume, as it has recognizable features. This Firefox costume was entered in Crunchgear’s contest last year.
55. Rock & Roll Witch
Or you could go as me! (Going as a rock & roll witch.)
The gray and blue fur are two separate materials from Joanns. The gray was much longer and I had to trim all of it down, but it really was the best match for Cheshire. I used a pattern to make the body then altered it to fit her measurements. The blue stripes were cut, placed, pinned and hand-stitched one by one. The mask has a paper mâché base with upholstery foam to widen his face. The eyes are lenses from a pair of sunglasses that I painted w/ just turquoise acrylic paint. The blacks of the eyes are what she sees through. Narrow, but it works well enough. The mouth and nose are thick card-stock also painted and attached with a glue gun and the whiskers are actually twigs I spray painted and glued in under the fur. Took about a month to make but probably would’ve been less if I didn’t have FT work FT school
Darla is the bratty dentist’s niece in the movie Finding Nemo. The bag is crucial for this costume, otherwise people would assume she’s just an orthodontically-challenged kid. But with the bag, it’s perfect! Redditor jarrettbraun posted a picture of redditor neuhani’s clever Halloween costume from last year.
Andy Pixel made himself into Hannibal Lecter last year. You might think this costume would be difficult with cars, stairs, or the restroom, but he thought about that ahead of time. The hand cart comes apart, so he can ditch it and the extra legs when needed, and still be left with a full costume. He’s not really in a straitjacket; crossed arms just give him the look.
Alanna George made this Very Hungry Caterpillar costume for just a couple of dollars, and it looks just like the caterpillar in the book! Her then-2-year-old son was delighted to be the character from his favorite story. It’s just one of many literary costumes that put kids in their favorite books that you can see in this bigger list.
Fans of the TV show The Walking Dead will recognize the Governor and his undead daughter. Redditor TriforceKing and his sister wore this last Halloween. It helped that he already resembled the actor David Morrissey somewhat. A few people pointed out that the Governor didn’t lose his eye until after his daughter was gone, but who cares? It’s Halloween!
It’s not really a new picture, but this photo was posted just last weekshowing a baby who can’t wait until he’s born to go trick-or-treating. Redditor Ghost0_ told us how he and his wife used that idea for Halloween a couple of years ago, and what went into making it. You don’t really have to be pregnant to pull this off, but it’s funnier to people who know you if you are.
62. Man Being Carried Illusion
QuaziLogical made a classic illusion costume a couple of years ago. It cost him about $30 and took about 30 hours of work. This version of the trick looks better than most because the “dummy” is covered by a surgical mask, obscuring its fakery, and QuaziLogical wore a mask, too, to make his face look artificial. See a closer image of the legs he made.
Flickr user jpotisch made this snow globe costume by hand! The globe is fashioned from clear acetate, and the snow is made from bits of foam hanging by thread. He posted the building process in a Flickr album with some commentary along the way. He said it took about three days to build, but the finished product is a work of art! He also made the banana costume his son is wearing in the background—and it has a photo tutorial, too.
Few will ever forget the climactic scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark, when the Ark is opened up and Gestapo agent Arnold Toht’s face is melted off. Comic book artist Cameron Stewart recreated that look for Halloween one year, at the last moment.
I made the Major Toht costume in a single afternoon. I woke up that morning thinking I was going to skip Halloween (too much work in my day job as a comic artist) but all of my friends flipped out and pressured me into it. I managed to scrape all of the props together by chance. The melty face is a Captain America movie Red Skull mask with flesh-coloured paint dribbled over it.
Here’s one trick-or-treater that takes the classic pirate costume to the next level. This toddler is Captain Hook being eaten by the crocodile from Peter Pan! Instructables member Rachael K explains how she made the costume, which won the Judges Prize for Sewing in the Instructables Halloween Costume Contest last year.
Ben Carpenter is a cosplayer who uses a wheelchair. For this year’s Tampa Bay Comic Con, he and his group became the cast of Mad Max: Fury Road. Ben was Max in the scene where he was strapped to the front of a vehicle in order to supply blood to the driver. He used his wheelchair in the upright position for the vehicle, driven by a friend and accompanied by other characters from the movie. They won the award for Best Group Cosplay. Of course they did.
OliviaMears is a cosplayer and costumer extraordinaire. Her Taco Belle dress decorations are made from card stock, tissue paper, felt, and Taco Bell wrappers. The inspiration came from a previous costume event, when she went for some fast food and contemplated the inadvertent pun.
Talk about a gift that keeps on giving; each month reveals yet another beautiful pooch answering nature’s call. Also important: $1 from each “Pooping Pooches” calendar 2018 is donated to the Maui Humane Society to support animals in need.
Is there anything cuter than seeing adorable kids getting along with a puppy? If you are a parent and also have a pet you certainly know that it’s a lot of work, but you will also agree with me if I say that seeing their incredible bond and the love they share is absolutely priceless.
Studies have shown that kids that grow up with pets are less likely to develop allergies when they’re older, and in addition to that, living with a pet teaches them empathy and non-verbal communication earlier than usual.
The following photos are a proof of how much these adorable kids really need a pet in their lives, but I have to warn you: they will cause a total cuteness overload.

As a huge fan of sleep, I’ve carefully studied the various degrees of being tired we all experience over the years. On one side there’s the normal, end-of-the day fatigue, and on the other, there are those times when you realize you accidentally binge-watched an entire season of a show until 4:00 a.m.
Even though these sweet animal friends probably don’t have a Netflix password, they’re all definitely closer to that end of the spectrum. They just can’t keep their eyes open for one more second.
1. “I’m not tired! I promise”
2. “Just give me like a few minutes…I mean hours.”
