The Morning GIF: Halloween Nyan Cat

Everyone’s favorite pastry cat from space gets a Halloween makeover.

Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

Nyan Cat is the internet’s favorite pastry-based, airborne feline. It’s a cat of the moment, standing still for no-one and nothing, and not surprisingly, it’s a cat with a change of costume. With the gruesomest holiday of all coming up (literal interpretations of Easter notwithstanding), Nyan Cat has gotten an appropriate Halloween makeover. Or three.

All this month on you will see a random Halloween Nyan. To see another, just refresh the page. They are: Zombie Nyan, Jack-o-lantern Nyan, and the eeriest, Mummy Nyan. There’s just something about that zombie mask that epitomizes the stealthy creep of approaching death.

They’re featured (with their pal Mexi-Nyan) on the Tumblr of their creator, Chris Torres, where they have 746 notes.
