I'm sure that I'm not the only one to see the skull sitting next to Alex's phone. The brown adobe looks like a Domo Kun skull.

The Hackaday logo wasn't brought up until now? Wow! I didn't because I came in late and figured someone had posted it already. I love Hackaday!

That is definately a "Scream" leaf and those costumes at the bottom are fantastic.

Minor nitpickery, the song is Speed King and the BAND is Rip Slyme. ;)

Also, random thought, I saw a gorgeous skull simulacrum on a hillside going down a highway in Wisconsin. If only I had a camera, eh!
