Halloween is so close we can taste it, like the questionably exposed ribcage of a banana. It's probably a bit too late to order a Halloween outfit online, but you can still get some officially licensed, moderately priced outfits at stores like Spirit Halloween. We scoured the internet and found some favorites, including the best damn Halloween decoration ever, and even some accessories for your night on the trick-or-treating town.

Also, check out this giant freakin' inflatable Fortnite bus

Reader, there are a few times in every writer's career where he feels morally compelled to go out of their way to draw your eyes to a bit of news. Today is one of those times because I found this officially licensed 17.5-foot tall inflatable Fortnite bus (opens in new tab) Halloween decoration is perhaps the best thing you can place on your lawn aside from a 12-foot dancing skeleton.

This big heckin' chonker is now available for $349 through Amazon (opens in new tab) (SOLD OUT). Order fast, though. This isn't exactly small enough to get Amazon's two-day shipping. We don't recommend leaping out (or on) of it but be sure to always thank your bus driver as a general rule of thumb. 

 The best place to get Fortnite Halloween costumes 

We’ve found that Spirit Halloween (opens in new tab) is arguably the best place to find the best Fortnite costumes for a variety of ages. They’ve got boy, girl, teen, and adult variants available, although things definitely trend towards kids. Amazon has a good selection of Fortnite costumes for boys (opens in new tab) and Fortnite swag to compliment your costume.  If you want an adult outfit, you might have to click over a page or two as well on the store site. We've also seen Walmart Fortnite costumes (opens in new tab) have some pretty good sales throughout October. 

Here are some of our favorite looks and where to find them:

Amazon (opens in new tab) also has a pretty wide selection of pickaxes/harvesting tools for you to choose from if you want to round out your costume. Everything from the unicorn pickaxe (opens in new tab), the Patty Whacker spatula, all the way to this monstrosity. (opens in new tab) If you really, really want to go all-out, you can buy a Boogie Grenade, an Impulse Grenade, a Port-a-Fort, or a pumpkin rocket launcher. All of them light up and make sounds. Just please don't give the cops an excuse to arrest a Daft Punk Llama.

A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games (opens in new tab). He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun (opens in new tab), The Big Issue, GamesRadar (opens in new tab), Zam (opens in new tab), Glixel (opens in new tab), Five Out of Ten Magazine (opens in new tab), and Playboy.com (opens in new tab), whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
