Putting together a costume for Halloween this year has never been easier thanks to these movie monster guides. Breaking down the creepy get-ups in a way that is both easy-to-grasp and familiar, the movie monster guides take on the form of Ikea instruction manuals. Each one even goes as far as to rename the villains in a Swedish way.

Created by illustrator Ed Harrington, the movie monster guides address the looks of Hellraiser's Cenobites, Friday The 13th's Jason Voorhees, the Human Centipede and Edward Scissorhands. Clever and straightforward, there are even warnings included so that people don't do any unnecessary harm to themselves or those they interact with.

The movie monster guides are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this talented artist's body of work, so make sure to browse his Tumblr site. Stats for Movie Monster Guides Trending: This Quarter & Buzzing
