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 neighbourhood know your house is a safe place for nerdy types.
