They’re supposed to be an alternative to pumpkins and skeletons for decorating your home come Halloween, but these porch light covers, featuring Iron Man, Darth Vader, and Stormtrooper masks, can just be left up all year round as a way to let the neighborhood know your house is a safe place for nerdy types.


Available for $10 each from ThinkGeek, the covers simply strap to existing porch lights using an adjustable elastic, so there’s no tools required. You’ll just want to make sure you’re not using anything more powerful than a 60-watt bulb, as the thin plastic that allows these covers to glow can also easily melt if it gets too warm.
