Fun with Easter Bonnets (Fourth Edition)

lady-bonnet

One of the key traditions of Easter is the Easter bonnet. Though originally worn by ladies for Easter church services in less casual times, it has somewhat fallen out of fashion in that regard. Yet, Easter bonnets have always been nonetheless elaborate since the holiday marks the end of Lent. However, in places like New York, thanks to Easter parades, Easter bonnets have risen to a whole new level. No longer are they seen as what women wear to church anymore. Or even women in general. But the kind of wacky hat to wear for a Easter parade. Some of these hats may seem straight out of a Las Vegas showgirl routine. Some may be DIY. Some may have flowers, eggs, chicks, sheep, and other Easter motifs. Some may not. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of extravagant Easter bonnets.

  1. Some girls go for a beehive while some prefer butterflies.

Then a again the woman’s hat may be meant to imitate straw. Yet, the butterflies are pretty.

2. You’d almost think she got her hat from outer space.

This an old photo of a woman wearing a hat that would rival Lady Gaga. I don’t know if any explanation is necessary.

3. You can always line your straw bunny hat with chocolate.

Though I’d say it’s a waste of chocolate. Love the flower and fuzzy bunny ears.

4. Sometimes Easter can take a prehistoric turn.

The triceratops even has fancy eggs. I guess this is meant for a boy who’s a big fan of Jurassic Park.

5. Care for a bunny on your bonnet?

This plush bunny even has its own bonnet. Yes, it’s kind of confusing. But it’s adorable.

6. Someone must be on the springy side of the Force.

Has pipe cleaners with squiggles attached to eggs. Got to like Darth Vader and a clone soldier.

7. A broad hat can leave plenty of space.

Her had includes eggs, flowers, and a basket. It even says, “Happy Easter.”

8. There are many ways to accessorize a top hat.

This one has so many Easter stuff on it that it makes Willy Wonka jealous. And all topped off with an Easter egg shell.

9. Guess you can’t get out of doing laundry all the time.

She’s wearing a clothesline and washboard. Not sure if the clothes fit her. But it’s clever.

10. This little bird flies out of its cage to freedom.

Sure it might look outrageous. But for an Easter bonnet, it’s modest.

11. An Easter bonnet can never have enough pink.

It has a nest on top and eggs and bunnies around the brim. But I love the purple butterfly the best.

12. An Easter bonnet can never have enough eggs, chicks, or feathers.

The feathers are in all kinds of colors. The eggs are sparkle. But the chicks are all yellow pom poms.

13. Wonder why the bunny’s diving in this bonnet.

Well, I guess there are some carrots in the bin. Love the creativity behind this.

14. My, that’s a large ice cream cone.

Yes, she has an giant ice cream cone on her head. But at least it has chocolate bits on the top.

15. A lamb relishes among the flowers.

This has a plush lamb on top of a hat enclosed with a fence. And yes, it’s adorable.

16. Nobody could resist this chick tower.

And to believe it, it has pom pom chicks on it. Though I like the pink decomesh ribbon trim.

17. I guess film noir gals have their own Easter bonnets.

This one has lips with a cigarette. Like you see on femme fatales in film noir movies from the 1950s.

18. It won’t be Easter without some purple Easter grass.

Has plenty of bunnies and chickies to your heart’s content. Also includes some daisies on the brim.

19. A spring windmill can always shine at an Easter parade.

It’s in pink, purple, and yellow brick. Still, I love the bunnies and flowers.

20. A sheep hat can be so fluffy.

Kind of reminds me of Shaun the Sheep. And it’s most likely made by a child.

21. An Easter bonnet should always have a pair of bunny ears.

She’s even dressed as a bunny and holding one in her hand. How much Eastery can you get?

22. This Easter bonnet seems to reach to new heights.

Well, it has a plush chick and bunny on top. Great for an Easter parade or the bunny trail.

23. An Easter bonnet can never have enough pom poms.

You have a couple of bunnies with chickies along the brim. And I guess the pom poms around the border are Easter eggs.

24. Sometimes a simple Easter bonnet will do.

Not sure what the concept behind this bonnet is about. Yet, I couldn’t resist leaving it out of this post.

25. Don’t forget to add a birdhouse.

Yes, this was made by a child. Yet, you have to like the felt flowers and chick decorations.

26. Perhaps a yellow bird at the top will impress.

This seems more for adults as I can see. Like the yellow butterflies.

27. No Easter bonnet can ever have enough flowers.

And I see Audrey Hepburn has put an entire bouquet on her head. Yet, at least she tastefully ties her hat with a bow.

28. Even boys can proudly don their Easter bonnets.

Doesn’t hurt if it includes flowers, eggs, and ladybugs. Some of which are held by clothes pins.

29. You’d almost think this is an Easter basket.

It’s a straw hat made with flowers and Easter eggs. Not sure if you could wear it though.

30. Perhaps a more naturalistic Easter bonnet may suit you.

I guess this is of the Cast Away variety. Yeah, I don’t think he can go through town without people making faces at him.

31. Someone must have sunflowers in their eyes.

Luckily, it’s so sunny that he needs a parasol. His straw hat is also covered in flowers.

32. She seems like a small basket case.

At first I thought this might be a watering can. Then I zoomed in.

33. You never know what you can do with a large straw hat.

One hat has plenty of white flowers. The other has small Easter eggs hanging from it.

34. Daffodils are usually an iconic sign for spring.

All the flowers are on top and tied together. And yellow eggs line the brim.

35. For flowers, all you need is tissue paper.

All these guys proudly show their pastel flowers. And they’re similarly dressed to match.

36. Make sure the nest has a raft of twigs.

Though make sure to touch it up with some flowers. Yet, I wonder how this woman sees through this thing.

37. Sheep always enjoy frolicking in the pasture.

These little sheep love being on the top grass. And they’re surrounded by tulips and daisies.

38. Chicks always love a fine straw nest.

You can see a chick emerging from a newly hatched egg. But there’s a large chick sitting on a couple. Not sure why.

39. A yellow Easter bonnet is great for any big game.

Seems like this is for Angry Birds. Though there’s a soccer ball on each side.

40. Bunnies enjoys camping out in the forest.

The brim has eggs around it. The top has bunnies at a camp fire near a tent and under a tree.

41. You’d swear everything here is in one basket.

This one has Easter eggs and flowers in a basket with a bunny. Got to love this one.

42. Perhaps a simple straw hat with bunny ears will suit your fancy.

These seem simple enough to make. The ears are made of felt. And each have a matching ribbon and flower.

43. Any young boy would love a straw Angry Birds hat for the Easter parade.

Well, Angry Birds seem like a common theme in Easter bonnets for boys. Its brim is made from black feathers.

44. Sometimes a few flowers will do the trick.

This one just uses a red hat with a few pink flowers. Simple but effective.

45. You’ll find this pink nest all covered with chicks.

The chicks are all made out of pom poms. Love how some of them come out of the eggs.

46. Rabbits are always happy enclosed in a fence.

This one has a plush bunny among a garden of flowers and dragon flies. So cute.

47. My, that must be a large chick.

Well, this one has a plush chick on a straw hat. It’s surrounded by eggs.

48. You have to love a pink chick that’s just hatched.

It’s just hatched from the nest. But it’s already shedding feathers.

49. A flower hat should have a few dragonflies.

This one flowers made out of tissue flowers. Yet, the glittery dragons sure are colorful.

50. Egg cartons can be great for an Easter bonnet.

Guess these are supposed to resemble rainbow roses. Easy to make and not too difficult to wear.

51. A green bonnet can always use a few flowers.

This one has flowers among the deco mesh foliage. And it’s held in place by a pink ribbon.

52. Nothing welcomes spring like a pink hydrangea.

And this girl seems to like her hydrangea hat quite nicely. Lovely.

53. This hive Easter bonnet has everyone buzzing.

Yes, this was made by a kid. But you have to admire the creativity with the beehive. So cute.

54. Even a dog can don an Easter bonnet.

This purple hat even has bunny ears. Still, not sure what the dog thinks here.

55. You’ll always look sharp in a polka dot top hat.

The brim is trimmed with pink. Includes flowers and a pink butterfly.

56. With this pirate ship, it’s chicks ahoy.

Well, it’s a ship with pirate chicks. And yes, there’s a skull and cross bones.

57. You’ll find plenty of golden eggs on this hat.

This one is brown with a nest. Yet, remember that these eggs are spray painted styrofoam. Sorry, fortune hunters.

58. On Easter, bunny ears are for the whole family.

These bonnets are quite elaborate nonetheless. Some even have Easter eggs hanging on them.

59. Don’t forget to put peonies on your Easter bonnet.

This is a vintage picture. Yet, the flowers have tulle underneath.

60. Even old time gentlemen wear their Easter bonnets.

Kind of like how these guys seem rather matter of fact about it. After a man’s Easter hat must be fancy.

61. How about a bunny in a basket?

Yes, they had wacky Easter bonnets back in the day, too. Though I’m not sure if a black and white picture does it any justice.

62. Of course, you can add some green tulle.

This one has bunnies on the grass with butterflies. So adorable if you ask me.

63. A purple Easter bonnet can have all the trimmings.

This one has plenty of bunnies and flowers. And yes, you can see at least one bunny ear on top.

64. An Angry Birds hat should include more feathers.

This one is a cowboy hat meant to resemble an Angry Bird. Like in the famous mobile game.

65. You’ll find a chick among the flowers.

This one has a chick on top with eggs on the brim. And yes, the chick is a plushie.

66. In New York City, you better attend a parade with a large hat of flowers.

This one has a wide pink brim. Yet, you’d almost mistake this hat for a garden.

67. Seems like these angry birds have too many pigs in their nests.

This one has Easter eggs painted like Angry Birds. Most of them consist of pigs though.

68. Even the cats get into the Easter fun.

Well, cat owners anyway. Not sure if this cat is enjoying itself.

69. You’ll find plenty of chicks on this minion hat.

This is a straw hat with a minion on it. If you love Despicable Me, this is for you.

70. An Easter bonnet can never have enough eggs.

Well, the Easter eggs are all on sticks. And they’re all in basket atop the bunny hat.

71. You’d almost think this hat came from the ground.

This one has flowers and grass. And here is a bunny just lounging around.

72. A canine Easter bonnet should always have flowers.

Sure it doesn’t look out of the ordinary. But the fact it’s for a bulldog is hilarious.

73. This hat has all the eggs on the top.

Helps that it’s on a pink basket. There are even some chickies among them.

74. Perhaps you may prefer a hat from a large glass.

Yet, her hand on it means she has to keep it steady. Though it does have flowers on top.

75. She finds herself in a cage with flowers.

Well, at least she’s taking the bird cage quite well. Still, the flowers are stunning.

76. Is that a live rabbit in that cage?

Sure looks like it. Yet, whether this boy enjoys carrying it on his head is another matter.

77. A large straw hat must have an air of spring.

This one has plenty of flowers and butterflies. And this girl delights wearing it.

78. How about a sequined top hat for the Easter parade?

This one has a tulle bottom and is worn like a headband. Yet, you can always do worse.

79. It helps if the egg and chicken shine in foil.

Most of what you see on this hat is wrapped in vibrant colors. Let’s hope there’s no chocolate on it.

80. Seems like someone’s a fan of Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Hey, it was the 1950s. When the US had a president who was popular and wouldn’t threaten to nuke North Korea over a slight insult. Good times.

Figure Skating Fashion Disasters On Ice

Figure Skating

This weeks marks the start of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeong Chang, South Korea. I haven’t done much on these events mostly since I’ve written most of my Olympics posts back during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. And I mostly combined both the winter and summer stuff in each post, save for the Ancient Greek Olympic article. Mostly because the Ancient Greeks didn’t have a Winter Olympics since winter sports weren’t really their thing. I mean they lived in a warm Mediterranean climate where snow only existed on mountains for God’s sake. If there was anything close to a Winter Olympics in the ancient world, it would’ve most likely be in Scandinavia. Besides, there are a lot of stuff going on in February like Valentine’s Day, Mardi Gras, and Chinese New Year. Not to mention, the crazy shenanigans at the Trump administration.

Nonetheless, the Winter Olympics do stand out in one way for a blogger like me. And that’s in the realm of figure skating. It’s a sport where people do some high acrobatics and dances on ice skates that would send any normal person attempt these stunts to the emergency room. Even so, male figure skating remains beneath the acceptable confines of traditional masculinity in the US where we have Blades of Glory as well as male skaters portrayed a little light in the skates. Still, it’s a popular spectator event with a subjective judging system based on artistry, presentation, and interpretation. Not to mention, there is a lot of drama in the Olympic competitions. Thanks, to the film, I, Tonya, many of us will now remember Tonya Harding’s husband assaulting Nancy Kerrigan’s leg with a bat. But one key feature are the sparkly outfits the skaters wear on the ice. Some may go for the classic dress or pantsuit. Some may contain sparkles. Some may depict characters from a story or pop culture. And some may represent their culture. Sometimes these costumes can make the skater shimmer and look graceful. But occasionally, you see plenty of skaters who look totally ridiculous. In this post, I show you some of the craziest skating fashions to grace the ice (though not exclusively from the Winter Olympics). For your reading pleasure, I give you an assortment of figure skating fashion fails. Enjoy.

  1. A skater can wow the judges with a black and white clown onesie.

Well, at least he’s not wearing any clown makeup to scare the kids. Still, kind of pathetic.

2. I didn’t know you can do a figure skating routine from Magic Mike.

Then again, he might be there for the fanservice. Yet, I can’t complain about his six pack.

3. Sometimes a flannel shirt and coveralls is all you need.

Sorry, but this outfit belongs out in the woods or a country barn dance. Not on ice. Still, at least his outfit didn’t cost much.

4. Unfortunately, her Katniss Everdeen costume didn’t land her on fire.

Yeah, that fire dress kind of falls flat. Even with rhinestones. Fire may burn. But ice surely chills.

5. Man, this guy really seems going for the gold.

I don’t think that gold outfit will win the judges’ favors. The Donald Trump haircut doesn’t help matters either. I’m sure he’s skating to theme from Goldfinger.

6. Some skaters wear too little. Others wear too much.

Not sure how she can skate in that outfit. Seems like she could trip on it.

7. When it comes to honoring a culture, at least insult your own.

These were Russian skaters who did a homage to the indigenous people of Australia. I’m sure Aboriginies want to cut them down with a boomerang now.

8. Nothing impresses the judges like spandex and puffed sleeves.

Hey, it was the 1980s. Puffed sleeves were all the rage at the time. Even on the skating rink.

9. Just because your robe is short and sparkly enough to skate in doesn’t mean you should.

Actually, her outfit is supposed to resemble a short kimono. Since she’s from Japan. However, Japanese styles don’t usually translate well on the skating rink for good reason.

10. Tonya Harding must make her chest sparkle.

Yes, that Tonya Harding. And yes, this costume is quite revealing as well as barely covers her boobs.

11. I guess this routine is Marc Antony and Jenifer Lopez.

Basically a celebrity couple that’s no longer together anymore. And in the douchiest imitation imaginable.

12. She certainly looks sensational for an Atlantic City blackjack dealer.

Yeah, a flashy vest and tight pants doesn’t impress me. Seems more suited for a casino.

13. Some men think they can bedazzle in buckskin.

Sorry, but that frontiersman get up doesn’t work on the ice rink. He should probably go back to playing cowboys and Indians.

14. Nothing hurts the eyes like black and yellow plaid.

How he got that in one piece, I’ll never know. But utterly tacky? Absolutely.

15. Here Katarina Witt dressed in her skating program as Gertrude McFuzz.

By the way, she caused a lot of controversy with this outfit. That in 1988 the International Skating Union instilled the “Katarina Rule” which required female skaters to wear pants and skirts. It was enforced until 2004.

16. Tara Lipinski skates to “American Woman.”

Wearing an outfit I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing in school. And yes, the pants are unusually tight.

17. Apparently, this guy just had to show his muscles.

Seems like this guy’s not wearing much. Like he’s skating to a rendition of Zoolander.

18. When in doubt, wear bright colors.

He seems more suited for hosting a kids’ show. And yes, he really stands out in a crowd.

19. Johnny Weir must wear that feather top.

Well, Weir is always known for his outlandish costumes. This is no exception.

20. Some pair skaters always go to great lengths to match.

However, I don’t think this style holds up. Reminds me of something you’d see from the 1980s.

21. Her dress is watching me, isn’t it?

Had she worn a black dress to match her partner, she wouldn’t be on this post. Alas, she dressed in an outfit that resembles a spaced out cat.

22. A swan costume is a common ice skating motif.

However, she can always overdo it with feathers. And not just around her waist either.

23. Not sure if white skaters should go with an Afro-Brazilian routine.

Particularly since the guy has a plate on his chest. Still, this is kind of offensive. Couldn’t they just do samba routine in the traditional spandex?

24. Her red skating get up is draped with red beads.

I’m sure practicality wasn’t in mind with this costume. Hope she doesn’t slip and fall should a bead fell off. Then again, ice skates are quite sharp.

25. Apparently, she wanted to skate as her favorite Disney princess.

I’m guessing it’s Jasmine, judging from her outfit. Though her pants look slashed.

26. So is this supposed to be Xenia Warrior Princess meets He-Man?

Because it sure looks like it to me. Okay, he doesn’t exactly dress like He-Man, but the style looks similar.

27. I’m afraid she has a severe case of cello butt.

I think she’s supposed to skate to a Beethoven piece. But to so with a cello on her back is ridiculous.

28. Unfortunately, she couldn’t afford another skating outfit after her costume partially burned from an ironing mishap. So she cut out the burn spots.

Okay, maybe I made it out. But at least it explains the outfit better than whatever she can come up with.

29. Perhaps a zebra suit can show one’s wild side.

She even has stripes on her arms. And yes, she doesn’t look particularly flattering.

30. At times, you’d swear that pair skaters wear similar outfits.

However, the woman always has to wear shorts while the guy wears suspenders. Still, kind of remind me of restaurant workers for some reason.

31. Can’t afford a skating outfit? Make one with see through robe.

Well, at least it’s easy to put on. But it barely covers her butt.

32. Queen Elsa, meet your future husband.

For he seems to resemble an ice king to me. Just look at the sparkle spikes on his shoulders and wrists.

33. Every figure skater yearns to shine like a star.

However, this doesn’t mean a skater should have stars all over her outfit. Kind of tacky if you ask me.

34. If you’re a fan of Braveheart, then you’ll love him on ice.

Yes, he’s dressed like William Wallace. However, that doesn’t mean he should.

35. Unfortunately, he forgot to pack his skating costume and now is stuck with his underwear.

Well, at least he showed up. Still, I’d be embarrassed to skate in that if I were him.

36. Always spread your wings.

However, this doesn’t mean your costume should include them. Because that’s just cheesy.

37. When all else fails, a male can skate with a bare chest.

Apparently, the concept of “no shirt, no service” doesn’t apply in the men’s figure skating dress code. Still, heard those rinks can be quite cold.

38. Of course, some men can rock in a sweater vest.

I’m just kidding. Still, he kind of reminds me of one of the Jonas brothers. However, brown and orange doesn’t go together.

39. A man can stun in silver.

For some reason, he reminds me of some sleazy futuristic nightclub owner. Only thing missing are nubile alien dancers on each arm.

40. Speaking of Space age, these two really make the future seem closer than we think.

She is a showgirl at the planet Zendu. He’s a hotshot bowler at the Cosmic lanes. Met at some disco club on the moon.

41. A skating outfit is always better with flowers.

However, I’m not sure what to make about flowers on a green bikini bra and tutu. Seriously, why?

42. Someone’s skating outfit is totally ripped.

Well, it certainly seems like he ripped it. But it’s just sewn with different types of fabric.

43. Their skating routine drew inspiration from Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds.

Well, at least their outfits match. But the wings don’t do them any favors.

44. Any skating pair can stand out in neon.

However, this doesn’t mean their outfits should have neon colors. Though they might look cool if they’re skating in the dark at a rave.

45. Sorry, but I don’t think The Pink Panther on ice is going to work.

This is especially the case when it’s a homage to the cartoon. Instead of the Peter Sellers movies.

46. How about a rendition of Weird Science?

It’s a movie from the 1980s. Still, seems like the guy is a perv in this routine.

47. Apparently, she got the raw deal in the Picasso routine.

I guess she has to have the painting on her back. Let’s hope it’s not body paint.

48. A neon pair is always chic on ice.

From Cosmopolitan: “Really? A neon circus raver tutu? At the Olympics? Points for a bold choice, but major deductions for execution.”

49. A skimpy yellow skating getup can always impress the judges.

It’s basically a two piece swimsuit with a bunch of crystals on nylon. Yes, I know what you’re thinking.

50. Introducing the boy on fire.

You’d almost mistake him for a Hunger Games contestant. Too bad Katniss prefers the Boy with the Bread. And no, the odds aren’t in his favor here.

51. Irina Slutskaya is all fireworks.

Well, look at her outfit which seems to have fireworks on it. She’s bursting with confidence.

52. When you have to go a skating competition at 10 and a Ren fair at 2.

I bet this is for a Romeo and Juliet routine. Too bad the color scheme doesn’t capture the romance.

53. They decided to paint their own outfit designs this year.

Too bad they decided to dress up as jesters. But at least they’re not wearing clown makeup.

54. Off the rink, they moonlight as musicians in a Ren fair punk band.

How else could I explain the crazy outfits? They even have their jackets laced.

55. Any female skater can shine like a Queen on the Nile.

Seeing the snake, she’s probably Cleopatra. And her outfit has enough rhinestones for her to pass as a cocktail waitress at The Egyptian.

56. This skating pair should stop miming around.

Hate to break it, but clowns aren’t exactly funny. In fact, they can be quite creepy, especially if they don’t say anything.

57. Just because you like skating to country music, doesn’t mean you should.

These two are from France, by the way. Because American skating pairs think a cowboy routine is stupid.

58.  If Willy Wonka designed skating outfits, they’d probably look like this.

And yes, they’re in bright colors over black. Like they live in a candy world of sweets and nightmares.

59. Sasha Cohen needs to spread her wings.

Whether she flies like a bird is another matter. But she certainly has a great interpretive dance routine.

60. Just because you love the 1980s, doesn’t mean you should skate to its music.

From Huffington Post: “Uzbekistan’s Misha Ge channels the ’80s with this razzle dazzle suit. In a bad way.”

61. “Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very frightening to me.”

From Huffington Post: “France’s Brian Joubert should be heating up the rink with his fiery lightning suit but instead it falls flat.” Shocker.

62. A neon pair can always stand out to the judges.

From Huffington Post: “Australia’s Gregory Merriman and Danielle O’Brien look rather silly in their neon patchwork outfits. How can we take them seriously when they look like clowns?”

63. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Robin Thicke’s brother.

Still, a striped one piece get up can really make your eyes sore. By the way, the guy’s from Spain.

64. With the right jewels, a skating pair can always sparkle.

From Huffington Post: “Americans Meryl Davis and Charlie White make figure skating outfits look cheesy thanks to Meryl’s blinged out purple dress.”

65. A men’s jacket has to include puffy sleeves.

However, it kind of seems straight out of a Steampunk movie to me. Not sure how well that translates on ice.

66. For some people, an electrocution is an inspiration.

Well, that’s what I take from this. Since the outfit design is utterly shocking.

67. Some princesses dress in their finest dresses. Other princesses…not so much.

Well, he’s not dressed to badly. But the woman is clad in the most hideous princess dress imaginable. As if she’s like “I’m a princess. I can do whatever I want.”

68. Sometimes what was all the rage during the 1980s should stay in the 1980s.

From Skating Fugly: “The 80s called, and this outfit is so bad, they don’t even want it back. Burn it.”

69. Nothing suggests the future like skating in shiny blue jumpsuits.

Of course, their outfits are missing space helmets. Because they’d go great with the suits.

70. Some male skaters prefer to go with a casual look.

Though his outfit contains the usual rhinestones. Because even a casual wearing skater needs to sparkle.

71. A pair will always be a hit with velvet denim.

Yet, these two prove that a velvet look can look trashy. Got to love the 1980, though I’m not sure if it’s set at that time.

72. Any female skater can wow crowds in a fire skirt.

Too bad you wouldn’t see an actual girl on fire like Katniss Everdeen do a dance like this. Still, fire seems to be a common motif with skaters.

73. Best to spring into action on the ice with a pool noodle skirt.

How does this translate into a skating routine with a rugged gardener, I’ll never know. Yet, the skirt obviously seems ridiculous.

74. I suppose she’s skating to “Eye the Tiger.”

Well, a tiger that’s encrusted with rhinestones all over her outfit. Kind of seems more like a Vegas show than a skating routine.

75. So I guess this skating routine rips of Gladiator.

Even so, the guy’s costume seems like cheap outfit from Party City. The woman’s well, her outfit’s not Roman at all.

76. Leopard print is always a tacky fashion choice even on the ice.

And the fact some of the spots are blue doesn’t change anything. Definitely a ridiculous choice.

77. How about a rendition of a gritty Spaghetti western?

Okay, that seems more like an ice routine of Oklahoma! Even with the stains on his outfit.

78. A lovely skating dress can be decorated with simple craft store supplies.

From Skating Fugly: “I know rick rack trim is cheap and plentiful, but covering a plain white tulle skirt with some rick rack, tying a piece around your neck, and calling it a day is pretty lazy. Yeah, there’s a top, but it’s also uninspiring. And in case you’re wondering, yes he is wearing a red velvet/velour tuxedo thing WITH TAILS.”

79. In the future, men will be dancing to red velvet jumpsuits like this.

I know it’s completely ridiculous. But at least he makes the most of it.

80. A make skater should always be a gentleman.

From Skating Fugly: “Sergei dressed as a marching band leader with a penchant for 17th century, ruffled peach-colored cravats. What instrument should he be playing? I’m going with cymbals.”

81. Silver pinstripes always go with a shiny blue shirt.

If Elton John was a 1920s gangster, I honestly think he’d dress like this. Even the pinstripes on this are shiny.

82. Seems like this guy’s dressed up as the Dread Pirate McGlitter.

Ever heard of that guy? Of course, not. For a rhinestone laden outfit doesn’t inspire dread.

83. I don’t like the face on that woman’s dress.

From Skating Fugly: “I think Svetlana is channeling 80s Madonna with the cone boobs, lacy fingerless gloves and messy, poofy skirt. Vitali could be a survivor of the apocalypse, if the apocalypse left nothing behind except glitter belts, sparkly pants, and a shirt cobbled together with chest fringe and one lace-up arm.”

84. When in doubt, it helps if the pair is in wholesome attire.

From Skating Fugly: “‘Bye, everyone! Now that we’ve won medals, we’re off to sing in the church choir and attend the potluck luncheon. I could really go for some green bean casserole, Jello-mold fruit salad and chicken pot pies!'”

85. Behold, a Space Age Elvis Impersonator.

I’m sure he’ll be a hit on the space port cantina. Though it’s rumored that the real Elvis was kidnapped by aliens decades ago.

86. For God’s sake, let the poor firebird go!

However, the firebird doesn’t seem to have much on her. While the guy seems like he’s not hungry for chicken either.

87. “Behold, the vestiges of my inner sanctum of darkness.”

I think this is Johnny Weir. Let’s just say if he was straight, I’d ship with Lady Gaga.

88. Did those hands just make a face?

From Skating Fugly: “I believe the concept of this program was that they were a couple meeting at a masquerade, wearing several different masks. (His hands formed one mask for her to wear, her hands formed another, etc.)” Still, the hand stuff is kind of creepy.

89. Bet you’ve never seen a rhinestone skeleton before.

Yes, he’s dressed as a skeleton. And you better be lucky he didn’t use a skull cap.

90. Never thought these two would glide on the ice… from space.

Then again, skating requires a little thing called gravity. Still, doesn’t detract from the spaceness of these tight suits.

91. When you think you’re a colorful peacock, instead of a garish bird from Dr. Seuss.

Okay, that’s pretty hideous. Her makeup doesn’t enhance her look either. More like a scary clown than anything.

92. While he dresses in a classy suit, she’s in a dress that’s, well, unique.

I guess this was inspired by something off the Hunger Games. Or some Frank Gehry architecture. And I don’t mean either as a compliment.

93. You’ll surely be in for a shock with this pair.

Now that’s just plain tackiness there. Great for an electrical show. Ridiculous for a skating competition.

94. They said she skated like a beautiful swan. Though her outfit suggested otherwise.

Her outfit seems like a combination of a swan costume and dominatrix wear. Not a good mesh.

95. Didn’t know there was a dominatrix on the ice.

Would really like to see what kind of moves she’d do with a cat o’ nine tails. Might be quite interesting to see.

96. Hey, it’s Leelu from The Fifth Element.

Though to be fair, I’m not sure if I can see a skating homage to a Bruce Willis sci-fi flick. And the costume doesn’t really convince me.

97. When in doubt, skate in street clothes.

And he’s wearing a tie-dye shirt with pants. Not sure if it stuns, but at least he didn’t waste much money.

98. You know what’s missing here? Space helmets.

I mean if they’re dressed like that they might as well. Also, give them some jet packs so they can fly.

99. You’d almost mistake her for an ice skating Wonder Woman.

Then again, I kind of take that back. Or if Wonder Woman had poor fashion sense with pink velvet and jewels.

100. Say, shouldn’t this routine involve 4 people.

If you want to do a skating tribute to Sergeant Pepper, it shouldn’t just involve the Beatles who are still alive. Otherwise, it just looks ridiculous.

The Hidden World of Mardi Gras Masks

Mardi-Gras-Decorations-001

Another big February holiday that’s coming up is Mardi Gras as Carnival season will soon be in full swing back in Europe. And one of the features in Carnival are these fancy masks. They may give you an impression of what you see in a masquerade ball with dazzling costumes as you might’ve seen in my post on the Venetian Carnival. This year, with Ash Wednesday falling on Valentine’s Day, it’s fair to say that Mardi Gras will fall on the day before. So I might as well get it out of the way if I can. Still, the masks can be as elaborate as the costumes themselves as you can see above. Some have gold. Some have feathers. Some have lovely embroidery. And some even have jewels. But each mask can be beautiful in its own way. So for your reading pleasure, I give you an assortment of unique Mardi Gras masks.

Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree at the Ugly Sweater Party (Fourth Edition)

WIN_20171216_09_56_01_Pro

A perennial favorite on my blog during the holidays seems to be my ugly Christmas sweater posts. Of course, back in the day to receive one of these as a gift was a monumental embarrassment. Today, you’ll find plenty of people putting on these tacky apparel for Christmas parties. And sometimes the tackier the better. For instance, take what I’m wearing above. The sweater and the headband are actually my mom’s which she wore for a Christmas party at work. Because I don’t really have anything this tacky in my closet. And today, I’ll surely bring you more since you’ll find plenty on Pinterest or any online search. So for your reading pleasure today, I give you another assortment of spectacular ugly Christmas sweaters. Enjoy. By the way, some of these might not be safe for work.

  1. A holiday sweater like this makes you a favorite customer at Starbucks.

Funny, that the cup isn’t red. Perhaps someone didn’t want to piss off conservatives.

2. A Christmas tree sweater should have all kinds of bows.

Well, it kind of looks more like a dress. But you have to love the large star on it.

3. How about a mounted reindeer with lights?

This is kind of sick. But to be honest, it’s kind of hilarious. Don’t worry, the deer head is plush.

4. For Christmas south of the border, I suppose this poncho will do.

Sure it might fall under cultural appropriation. But since it’s a tacky rendition of “Feliz Navidad,” I’ll take it.

5. Hipsters might adore this reindeer top.

Because a sweater with anything else is so mainstream. And yes, you have the hipster glasses near the red nose.

6. As we all know, you can’t resist the presents under the tree.

Oh, she’s supposed to be dressed as the tree cover. Though that’s an awfully small tree on her head.

7. As we all know, Santa can’t be Santa without his long white beard.

Well, this Santa has a pretty long beard akin to Albus Dumbledore. Though you normally don’t see Santas with that kind of facial hair.

8. With this sweater, you’re always Walken in the winter wonderland.

And yes, this depicts Christopher Walken. You know him from hit movies and his distinctive voice.

9. Instead of a Christmas sweater, how about go with a Christmas skirt?

Okay, this is more cute than ugly. But still, it kind of counts since it’s in a similar style.

10. “Rudolph with your nose so bright, won’t you drive my sleigh tonight?”

As you can see, this sweater lights up. And yes, so does Rudolph’s nose.

11. “Fra-geel-lay. Must be Italian.”

After all, you can’t have an ugly Christmas sweater post without including one with the leg lamp. A tacky Christmas decoration that you’d ever see.

12. A mantle at the fireplace and a deer head are always great for couples.

Yes, it looks like someone killed Rudolph. But think how well it goes with the stockings hung at the fireplace.

13. Frosty can always make a great drinking buddy during the holidays.

Yes, that’s Frosty the Snowman with a beer can. And yes, he’s becoming a bad influence to children.

14. You’ll always need a warm fire when the stockings are hung by the chimney with care.

Another couple’s idea, apparently. Though the woman can wear hers all year long. The guy, not so much.

Well, it has feathers on the cuffs and bottom. But it includes a hood with all kinds of tacky trimmings.

16. A Christmas vest should always include some tinsel.

Don’t worry, she’s fine. Just had to spend some time in the hospital. But the tracks are nonetheless permanent.

18. Apparently, the Abominable Snowman can spit out candy.

Okay, maybe not. But this is nevertheless hilarious, especially if you add tinsel.

19. Now your Christmas sweater can have its own snow globe.

Okay, this is in plastic. But it will certainly be a hit at any Christmas party you go to.

20. Seems like the deer like to frolic during the holiday season.

Okay, they’re just humping each other. So best not to wear this one in front of the kids.

21. For a more refined occasion, you might want to wear this evening gown.

Yes, this is an ugly Christmas dress. Not something you’d wear to a fancy dress ball. But perfect for an office party, sort of.

I see the guy wearing the Santa hat with his tacky suit. Sure it’s ridiculous but fun.

Consists of Ralphie in his pink bunny outfit and the leg lamp. And all in felt, too.

26. Of course, no Christmas can be without a couple of ball ornaments.

Okay, this guy’s sweater is kind of risqué. Definitely not to be worn around children.

27. No ugly sweater can ever have too much tinsel.

Actually, you can’t have too much of anything on these sweaters. But she certainly rocks in her tinsel top with silver snowflakes.

28. As Santa says, “Ho, ho, ho.”

Though that phrase can also be used as an inside joke. But I like how the Santas are positioned here. So clever.

29. Sometimes a sweater can use a little bit of everything.

This one has a snowman with tinsel, garlands, bows, jingles, and baubles. Certainly stands out among many.

30. Nothing makes Christmas than some holiday Whoville fashions.

These girls even have the Who hair. Nevertheless, perfect for any day out in Whoville.

31. Green feathers always go well with any candy cane striped shirt.

This one even lights up as you can see. Though I’d more anticipate more decor relating to the Grinch on this.

Though you wouldn’t want to spend Christmas with the Griswolds. Or anywhere near them for that matter.

33. You can always add more to any Christmas sweater.

This get up is essentially covered in bows. Yet, it has plenty of other stuff on it, too.

35. A Christmas dress can be just as snazzy.

This one has a tree on the skirt and bows on the top. All on black velvet, apparently.

36. Indeed, the North Pole elves have their own kind of entertainment.

This one has Barbie on a stripper pole as the elves shower her with cash. Ho, ho, ho indeed.

37. A cardigan can always use some tinsel and tulle.

But don’t forget to put on a few decorations as well. Certainly flashy for any festive occasion.

38. Guess you have an idea on what she has in her stocking.

Though looking at her you can’t help but be amazed on how she fit an entire bottle in her stocking. Nevertheless, this is pretty funny.

39. I’m sure you can have plenty of jingling on this sweater.

Includes spring tits, lights, and bells on the nipples. So you’d better not wear it in front of your family.

40. Christmas heels should come with a snowflake or two.

Well, these are red heels covered with green glitter, too. The snowflake is the finishing touch.

41. A Christmas sweater can come in all sizes.

And I see a couple of these are child size. But all certainly have their own bows for the tree.

42. Perhaps you might want your holiday sweater gift wrapped.

Though this one has a gold bow on it. Though the wrapping is in blue, red, and green.

43. You can make your own reindeer with a simple sock.

Well, that’s kind of ingenious. The antlers are quite charming as well.

44. A festive sweater should always jingle.

And if you live in Whoville, then this is the perfect Christmas sweater for you. Should go great with Cindy Lou Who hair.

Yes, that vest is certainly ugly. But those pants are just atrocious.

48. How many of those bears could you fit in that stocking?

The title on this one reads, “It’s a sad day for the bears.” Not sure exactly what that means per se.

49. There’s nothing more badass than Santa fighting a shark.

And yes, Santa really gives the shark a punch. Though Santa’s not known to be buff at all. In fact, on the contrary.

50. For Breaking Bad fans dreaming of a White Christmas, look no further.

Though to be fair, Walter White isn’t the kind of guy you’d want to spend Christmas with. Mostly because he’s freaking insane.

51. I call this one, “The Pizza Lover’s Deluxe.”

Because nothing brings cheer during the holidays than the great taste of pizza. Okay, maybe not. But this is pretty funny.

52. I’m sure this guy will eventually shoot his eye out.

It depicts the BB gun Ralphie wanted for Christmas. And yes, he does hurt himself using it.

53. Apparently, Santa might need a new belt or suspenders.

Since you can see his butt crack. Hopefully, nobody but the reindeer saw that. I hope.

54. I give you the Human Santapede.

Get it? Because it’s a human centipede and it’s for Christmas. Yeah, I know it’s disgusting.

55. You’d find this sweater delightfully Grinchy.

This one has bows on the sleeves as well as a plush Grinch in the center. And yes, there’s some tinsel for the trim.

56. After all, everyone loves a plush reindeer.

Well, it more or less resembles a moose with a wreath. But this woman’s not complaining.

57. How about a Christmas sweater for two?

This one is a naughty and nice shirt for couples. Though I wouldn’t want to have this kind of closeness at a holiday party. Think outfits should be separate.

58. If you’re a stoner, this holiday sweater may be for you.

It’s a pot gingerbread shirt. An unsurprisingly, it contains rose of gingerbread.

59. Care to look inside the windows.

Well, it certainly gives you a nice view. Seems like this sweater has a little bit of everything here.

60. I suppose a yeti is perfect for any white Christmas.

Though a yeti lives in the Himalayas where many of the people don’t. Still, this is pretty clever.

SantaCon Costumes Are Coming to Town (Third Edition)

d6ba204d90051db9cf4812f45ac58e20.jpg

Around this time of year, people from across the country put on their yuletide duds to paint the town red and green for the SantaCon pub crawl. Now while its participants call it a time of revelry and fun, those in New York City particularly see it as a boozefest full of drunken brawling, vandalism, public urination and disorder. This has resulted in fierce community resistance save from those who make money off it as well as the disavowal of those who originated it. Though to be fair, plenty of fun events have devolved into an excuse for drunk partying like Cinco de Mayo and Saint Patrick’s Day. Hell, you can even say the same for Christmas and New Years, which in that case, had been filled with drunken incidents centuries before SantaCon was a thing. Anyway, a 2011 article from Gothamist called the Santa celebration an “annual drunken shitshow” that “has steadily devolved from cleverly subversive to barely tolerable to ‘time to lock yourself in your apartment for the day.’ ” And a 2017 report from the New York Daily News stated the event, “endures an annual backlash from New Yorkers repulsed by the sight of Santas vomiting or urinating in the street in years past.” Let’s just say Wikipedia has leaves a section of New York City incidents over SantaCon with many hilarious reports of this yuletide debauchery. This doesn’t mean we can’t get any fun out of it. For we totally can since you find plenty of creative costumes in their midst, which is where I come in. So for your reading pleasure, please enjoy these SantaCon-type costumes.

  1. Nothing makes winter like an enchanting snow globe.

Well, at least she has “North Pole” on the base. And she has a Santa coat and striped tights.

2. “Frag-gil-lee. Must be Italian.”

Yes, she’s dressed up as the infamous leg lamp from Christmas Story. Still, tights don’t provide adequate insulation in freezing weather.

3. Guess the birthday boy isn’t all too impressed.

Well, Christmas is supposedly Jesus’s birthday. Still, he doesn’t seem like he’s about to chase moneychangers at some temple anytime soon.

4. Perhaps you’d like a couple of gingerbread?

Though the outfits seem kind of short. Yet, both these women hold candy canes to match.

5. How about a Santa mascot for size?

Yes, it’s a cartoonish costume with an eye space at the hat. It’s also kind of creepy.

6. Tulle is always great for a costume Christmas tree.

Both of them also have lights on their trees as well as a star on their heads. Both women can surely stand out.

7. Watch out for this red suited gangster.

He has a candy cane and he’s not afraid to use it. Also, the suit is in pinstripes.

8. A Christmas tree dress will certainly stun.

This is a strapless dress with a skirt consisting of tinsel, snowflakes, and baubles. Not sure if anyone should wear it to SantaCon. But it’s surely stunning.

9. For once, Santa would just like to relax.

Guess this is what Santa would wear when he’s at some golf course in an exotic location. Let’s hope it’s not Mar-a-Lago.

10. Don’t look now, but I think there’s an Abominable Snowman creeping up on the candy cane guy.

You know the Abominable Snowman from the Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer special. And yes, I have a very bad feeling about this.

11. These Christmas presents tastefully wrap themselves.

Both wear tutus and shiny tops. And they even come with large gold tags.

12. What could Christmas ever be without the Grinch and Cindy Lou Who?

Though I don’t think the Grinch costume is incredibly flattering. But Cindy Lou is quite lovely.

13. Apparently, even reptilians enjoy the SantaCon celebrations.

One of them even wears shorts. Then there’s some Santas with white fros.

14. If you want to dress as a snow queen, there’s always a costume of Elsa.

Yes, I know so many girls want to be her for Halloween. But at Christmas, Elsa won’t be in high demand. So you can just let it go.

15. Sometimes with Christmas trees, less can be more.

Well, these two wear short green dresses. But they also include the stars, tinsel, and lights.

16. Don your red and green apparel for this year’s SanatCon.

This is a pretty original costume. She has green hair, a hula hoop, and an outlandish outfit. Is either an elf or a resident from Whoville.

17. Santa comes in riding on Rudolph.

I don’t know about you. But considering that Santa is overweight, he shouldn’t be riding on a moose, let alone a reindeer.

18. In this Santa getup, you can be a darling of the holiday pub crawl.

Yes, it’s a sexy Santa girl costume. Not sure if Mrs. Claus would wear this though.

19. Apparently, the Grinch decided to go casual.

Though a green T-shirt is better than makeup. Still, you have to like what they did to their dog.

20. Who thought that Santa could rock in a fedora.

Okay, maybe not. But he certainly seems like he’s straight from a rock group like ZZ Top.

21. Make sure your presents are carefully wrapped.

She’s wearing a dress of gift bows. The guy’s wearing a gift box with a giant bow.

22. This snowman costume can make SantaCon extra frosty.

Yes, it’s a sexy Frosty the Snowman costume. And yes, it comes with a short skirt that’s not good for freezing weather.

23. Perhaps you might want to be a rather saucy Mrs. Claus.

Comes with candy cane striped tights. Still, Mrs. Claus shouldn’t be sexy.

24. Toy soldiers come in all shapes and sizes.

Though the women have the high hats, the men have the fuzzy ones. But they’re all dressed in the traditional uniform.

25. Apparently, Santa has come out of his grave.

Of course, you’ll probably have an undead Santa among ranks. Mostly consists of a Santa suit with a zombie face.

26. If you can’t wrap, you can always gift bag.

Those must be pretty large gift bags. And you can even use tissue paper.

27. Santa Claus isn’t the only Christmas figure to don a long beard.

Yes, this is the Ghost of Christmas present from the Dickens story. So he’d be perfect for SantaCon.

28. My, he sure has a long candy cane.

Okay, I know this is quite risque. But SantaCon isn’t known for its wholesomeness anyway. In fact, it’s just the opposite.

29. You don’t need much to dress as a toy soldier.

They mostly used T-shirts to decorate here. Add the fake hair, mustache, and hat.

30. For a cold day, why not dress as a Christmas caroler?

Okay, this isn’t a conventional caroler costume. Mostly because it has a short skirt.

31. You can always let it snow in your little globe.

Well, that’s kind of cute. Like the “North Pole” base. Though a globe doesn’t really make tasks easier for this Santa’s little helper.

32. A reindeer should always come in a red skirt.

Well, a red tutu of tulle. She’s also wearing red antlers to match.

33. A Christmas tree always needs to sparkle with tinsel.

She’s even wearing presents as shoes. Still, she can’t shake off that shine.

34. Santa and his missus can always stand out in furry, white robes.

Okay, this is probably the Russian Dede Moroz and his wife. But both are in furs and wield long staffs.

35. You haven’t seen nothing from this super Santa.

Though I can’t see how Santa could be Superman. Because both men have totally different body types.

36. Ice queens always love it when it snows.

Well, I suppose they work for some winter park. But they have lovely blue hair and dresses to imitate ice.

37. You might want to bundle up in this candy cane coat.

Well, it’s a flashy candy cane coat and boots. But there’s barely anything in between.

38. Didn’t know Cindy Lou Who was dating Buddy the Elf.

Well, they’re not given age gaps and the different universes they live in. But these two are quite cute together.

39. You can always decorate your own tree dress for the holidays.

She’s wearing tinsel and baubles along with a star on top. Doesn’t light, but she’ll go on the post.

40. While Christmas as Santa Claus, Hanukah has it’s own chicken.

Not sure what the chicken has to do with this Jewish tradition. But I have an inkling suspicion this guy was made up.

41. These toy soldiers are always on duty.

Since they’re wearing pale green over their red pants. They also use candy canes as guns.

42. Of course, everyone could use some shade.

This is a rather clever leg lamp costume. Just need a black coat, stockings, and a lampshade hat.

43. It’s MC Santa time.

Yes, this is Santa as MC Hammer. Though note the other Santa with the chimney hat in the background.

44. Sometimes Santa enjoys delivering presents to those under the sea.

Actually, I don’t think he’s even in the water. But he has a Christmas tree in tow.

45. Wrapping paper can be an excellent substitute for fabric.

Technically, no. But since it’s Christmas, it’s best to let it slide since they’re dressed as presents.

46. Santa’s sleigh team is all assembled.

Well, these ladies are all in a sexy reindeer costume. Though to be fair, female reindeer do have antlers this time of year.

47. This Who girl always loves to dress in pink.

Though to be fair, Whos always have a unique style to them. You especially see this with women’s hairstyles.

48. When in doubt, you can always go to SantaCon in your pajamas.

So they actually have Christmas onesies for adults? Not sure if I’d even wear that.

49. To scare the kids, may I suggest a Krampus costume?

Even comes with a sack for the kiddies. Yes, this a really messed up outfit you can buy.

50. Don’t forget to wear your best stockings.

And I suppose this guy took it literally. Though he doesn’t necessarily make a bad stocking stuffer.

51. You can always shimmer in a pink Santa dress.

At least this one comes with tights. But you have to wear a coat with this on.

52. Hipster Santa will always give you what you want.

Don’t forget he puts roaches inside bad kids’ stockings. Because coal is just too mainstream.

53. Sometimes you get more with less on a Christmas tree dress.

Includes bows and baubles on the skirt along with gold tinsel. Comes with red transparent stockings.

54. Seems we have Rudolph pulling Santa’s sleigh.

Don’t worry, they’re just two friends playing around. Though the woman playing Rudolph must be freezing her butt off.

55. An oblong box is a perfect way to present yourself.

It’s a present costume, possibly consisting of mostly foam inside. Yet, it’s in red with a green ribbon.

56. Though you can easily make your own presents with a box.

These boxes just have wrapping paper, ribbons and tags. And they only cover their upper bodies.

57. You should always go all out as a Christmas tree.

He’s even wearing lights and tinsel. Though I hope he doesn’t step into mud since it would totally ruin it.

58. Let these Santas guide you on the 4 stages of life.

And yes, they seem to revolve around Santa Claus. Yet, you have to love their hats.

59. Seems like a couple of Na’vi are basking into the holiday cheer.

Too bad their blue paint costume hasn’t been relevant since 2009. Though James Cameron vows to make sequels.

60. Perhaps you’d like to dress as a couple of driedels.

Finally, a costume depicting an actual Hanukah symbol. But don’t try to spin these two.

61. These Santas just came from the deep.

Well, they’re diving helmets. Though you wonder if they can see through the windows.

62. The mighty Santathor will always be there to save Christmas.

And he comes wiht his hammer Mjingle to vanquish the Grinch stealing it. Wait a minute, Thor’s a Norse god, isn’t he?

63. Seems like everyone wants to follow that one reindeer.

Though one of these is Ralphie who just shot his eye out. Still, the Santa seems a bit sketchy.

64. You can always keep warm with a cup of Starbucks.

Well, she’s dressed as a Starbucks holiday cup. Guaranteed to infuriate conservatives and Fox News.

65. Christmas trees should always dress alike.

And all these ladies wear stars and bright green hair. Dresses are decorated with baubles and tinsel.

66. This soldier is a real nutcracker.

You can tell because she’s holding a bag of nuts. Though she seems quite pretty compared to the regular ones.

67. You can never have enough tulle for a Christmas tree costume.

Wonder how she sits down. Outfit even lights up. Lovely.

68. You could always go as an elf from Santa’s workshop.

Makes you wonder what the North Pole’s dress code is. Still, sexy elves belong in Lord of the Rings, not Christmas.

69. Seems like Santa has gone Steampunk.

So does he ride on a mechanical sleigh with automaton reindeer? Still, this is great.

70. If you like gingerbread, you might adore this dress.

Yes, I know it’s another sexy costume. But at least it has a candy cane blouse and tights.

71. Now this snowman looks really frosted.

Okay, that’s pretty creepy. Yet, it’s a great use of cotton stuffing.

72. Looks like that’s someone from Santa’s pit crew.

Well, someone has to repair Santa’s sleigh. And yes, that person’s wearing a mechanic’s suit.

73. Sorry, but on Christmas the guy has to wear the pink bunny suit.

Yes, this is A Christmas Story couple. And yes, the woman is a leg lamp. Still, the pink bunny costume cracks me up.

74. Looks like Santa Claus has gone evil.

And he wears horns and a long red robe with a hood. He’s even got a lady assistant with him.

75. These people wish you a merry Kiss-mas

Think of it as KISS dressed up in Santa suits. And you basically get this.

76. Seems like Jack Skellington is passing on his own Christmas cheer.

I have to admit this is just so cute in its own way. Just hope this little Santa doesn’t give away shrunken heads to the kids.

77. No, Ghost of Christmas Present, please don’t go open robe.

And yes, he has his dick in a box. Jesus Christ, this is just messed up.

78. You can always don a couple of advent calendars.

Well, that’s a rather simple idea for SantaCon. Very original to say the least.

79. Now you have a Santa in grayscale.

Because a grayscale always goes in a black and white photo. Though we live in a world of color.

80. Looks like Clark Griswold’s had trouble with the lights.

Yes, this is from the cover of Christmas Vacation. And yes, you can actually get electroshock if you’re not took careful.

Scary and Eerily Affordable DIY Halloween Costume Inspirations (Third Edition)

WIN_20171027_13_07_39_Pro

As a presenter in this year’s Prestigious Film Awards, I present the award for Best Picture. So will it be the Movie Critics Love But Viewers Don’t, The Hit Indie That Should Win But Won’t, The Really Good Film Everyone Likes But Won’t Win, Some Expensive Period Piece That Your Mom Likes, Mediocre Fluff Everyone Seems to Like But You, The Indie Film Nobody Watched, Some War Movie Your Dad Likes, The Artistic Movie Nobody Gets, and Some Expensive Period Piece with Awesome Costumes.

Sure I know I’m a bit late doing a DIY Costume post for this year. But I had a long time trying to decide a costume for myself before settling with Award show presenter. And you can see how I mocked the shit of that construct since I’ve spent some years dissatisfied over Oscar Best Picture Winners. Nevertheless, while buying a Halloween costume at a store might be a quick solution if you need something ready made, the choices might not provide what you have in mind. Particularly if the women’s costumes mostly consist of what a stripper would wear. Though making your own costume might be quite time consuming, but you can always get creative. After all, if you can use stuff at home, the possibilities are endless. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of costumes people have made themselves for Halloween.

  1. A wrap sandwich makes a perfect first Halloween costume for a small baby.

Apparently, this contains bacon, lettuce, and tomato. Like the baby’s little mustache, too.

2. Give a boy a skirt, spear, and cape, and he’ll be ready to join his legion.

Well, at least he’s not a Spartan from 300. On the other hand, Roman soldiers and gladiators didn’t wear T-shirts.

3. The Green Bay Packers have taken the field.

And this boy dressed as the field. Guess he thought wearing a jersey as his favorite player was done to death.

4. Don’t really see how he pull out that rabbit.

Then again, it’s a couple’s costume idea of magician and rabbit. Though at least the woman didn’t dress up as the lovely assistant who gets sawed in half.

She’s dressed as Carmen San Diego. Sure she may steal the world’s treasures but she taught a generation geography.

6. I’m sure you’ll get a real Hawaiian Punch here.

You see, she’s a hula dancer. He’s a boxer. So that’s how you get Hawaiian Punch. Okay, it’s a pun.

7. You can always recognize Bjork by her swan costume.

Though the Icelandic singer wears all kinds of outlandish outfits. But the swan costume defines her.

8. Seems like this little guy takes eliminating critters seriously.

Actually this is a costume set of an exterminator and a mouse. But you have to like the trap on the wagon.

9. Apparently, it rains wherever this kid goes.

This little girl is a rain cloud. Let’s hope she doesn’t have a thunderstorm this Halloween.

10. This little lady wants you to keep in shape.

Guess she’s supposed to be an aerobics instructor from the 1980s. Also has a little cardboard boom box she uses as a basket.

11. If you loved the 1960s, you might enjoy Sonny and Cher.

Sure they might love each other now. But keep in mind that Sonny wasn’t a very nice guy. And that Cher had a very good reason for dumping his ass.

12. These two seem to be getting on in their golden years.

Okay, they’re not senior citizens. But at least they have a costume you can do within minutes.

13. I don’t think these two are compatible.

If you understand, he’s the 1% who get all the money. She’s the 99% who’s not happy about it.

14. This little girl knows she’s a freaking ray of sunshine.

As you can see, she’s Little Miss Sunshine. Because she has a sun crown and a sun on her dress.

15. Viking families always stay together.

Also they didn’t wear horned helmets. And I guess the baby’s a small dragon.

16. If you like Clash of the Titans, you might want to dress up as Perseus and Medusa.

17. These ladies aren’t shy about cheap wine.

They’re all dressed up as box of wine. Because let’s just say expensive bottled wine is overrated.

18. If you love Twin Peaks, you have to check out this mother and baby costume.

This is the log lady who’s one of the better known characters from that show. And yes, that baby is a log.

19. “I’ll be Bach.”

As in Johann Sebastian Bach, the famous 17th-18th century composer. Or is he supposed to be Sir Isaac Newton who discovered the basic laws of physics? Either way, you have to love the wig made from toilet rolls.

20. Is it somebody’s birthday today?

Well, she’s a 3 tier birthday cake. She’s doused in pink icing with sprinkles all over.

21. How about a nice bubble bath?

She even has a rubber duckie and a shower cap. Also, the bubbles mostly consist of cotton balls.

22. She’s certainly as pretty as a peacock.

Though to be fair, peacocks are guys in the animal world. Nevertheless, love the feather train.

23. Bob Ross debuts his latest masterpiece.

As you see, she’s a picture of a happy little tree. Still, Bob Ross has been dead since the 1990s.

24. This boy is a born Deere.

Well, at least he’s wearing plaid and overalls. Still, love the green thresher.

25. “Steph, you’re the next contestant on The Price Is Right.”

I guess she’ll definitely get that new dinette set. Still, this is a pretty easy costume to do.

26. Hide your pooch when she comes to town.

Still, this is a very convincing Cruella de Vil costume. But if you have 4 legs and a tail, she’ll give you nightmares.

He’s supposed to be a chick magnet. Get it? I mean he has a magnet with chicks on it.

This is a couple’s costume. Still, Ms. Frizzle may want her kids to learn science. But safety isn’t her highest priority.

29. You’d almost think this boy was made out of plastic.

If he was smaller, you’d think he’s a real plastic army guy. Wonder how he moves around though.

30. Why play with Play Doh when you can be Play Doh?

And it seems these two won a costume contest. Simple to make yet effective.

31. Check out this iPhone 6.

And yes, he has all the apps. Sure he may not be the latest model. But you’d buy him anyway.

32. Robbing a bank is as easy as taking candy from a baby.

Okay, robbing a bank isn’t easy. But this daddy and baby costume will just steal your heart.

33. You’d certainly flee from this little Jigsaw.

He’s from the popular Saw horror movie franchise. He may be a toddler but he’s menacing on his tricycle.

34. Someone must’ve been through strong winds.

Relax, it’s just a costume. But you have to admire this guy’s windy effort.

35. I’m sure she’s got a pretty head you’d want to mount on your wall.

I know some might see it poor taste. But you have to admire her creativity.

36. Not sure if this little guy is ready for a six pack yet.

This is a mother and baby Jersey Shore. Mother is supposed to be Snookie. Boy is meant to be the Situation, I think.

37. Care for some Pilsbury toaster strudel?

This kid’s dressed in lederhozen. And all for a school Halloween parade.

38. Do you remember the Sony Walkman?

And I suppose his costume is made out of cardboard. Like the headphones though.

41. In a few decades, we’ll laugh at this awkward picture.

You know Awkward Family Photos? This woman is dressed like one and includes the background.

42. Remember Chat Roulette? Apparently, this guy does.

And you can see why it didn’t catch on. Because men on there often exposed themselves.

43. Not sure if you’d call this girl a happy little tree.

She’s even covered with leaves from her head to her shirt. But at least she’s not decked like Stanford’s mascot.

Yes, she’s a web browser. Used to use it but don’t anymore since 2015.

47. Want to hear your fortune?

Very convincing costume if you ask me. But I’m sure you won’t see much insight in her crystal ball.

48. Instead of hastagging your Halloween costume, why not dress as one?

At one point, you wouldn’t see much of her. Now she’s everywhere on the Internet.

49. You’d swear it’s raining cats and dogs.

In her case, you can say literally. Like the plushies on her umbrella.

50. If you have problems with aliens, call these guys.

This one just requires a black suit and tie. And you can customize.

She’s a Monet by the way. And no, she’s not cheap in the least.

You’ve seen the WWII poster to call women to work in the factories. Today, Rosie’s a feminist icon.

Though she doesn’t resemble any showgirl from Las Vegas. Still, this is a rather creative costume.

57. You’d find it impossible to leave her part of the universe.

She’s basically the solar system. Those styrofoam balls are the planets and the sun. She has the moon on her headband.

58. Does this taco dog come in a hot or soft shell?

59. Here is a self-portrait of a true artist.

This kid is a self-portrait of Vincent Van Gogh. Hope he makes an impression on you.

Seems these camp counselor costumes don’t require much. Just shorts, shirt, clipboard, sneakers, and headbands.

61. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Smores.

Parents are graham crackers. Kids are chocolate and marshmallow. Wagon is the fire.

62. Someone wants to take this grouch.

Sure it’s Oscar and the garbage person isn’t a character on Sesame Street. But this is adorable.

63. You’d be impressed by these jellyfish.

These two might look graceful. But their stings will hurt like hell and possibly kill you.

And he’s wearing khakis. Nevertheless, like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.

65. Bet you’ve never seen a whip or nae nae like this before.

She’s movie popcorn by the way. And yes, she’s probably more expensive than the regular stuff.

67. Here Steve Irwin goes hunting for crocodiles.

Not sure how this works. But you have to like how it seems his legs are detached from his chest.

70. He may be small but he’s filled with infinite wisdom.

This baby’s dressed as the Dalai Lama. Funny, how the real guy wasn’t much older when he became the Dalai Lama back in the 1930s.

71. Seems like this big game hunter has quite a collection.

Normally I abhor trophy hunting. But this costume idea is simply spectacular.

72. “In an old house in Paris that was covered in vines…”

The redhead one is Madeline by the way. Also, one of them might be a guy.

Some of them have their own Care Bear plushies with them. Still, these are fairly easy to do whether you’re by yourself or with a group.

74. Nothing will ever scare this crow.

He just wants to fly, eat dead animals, and avoid cars. Like the beak.

75. The hunter always goes out of his way to catch his deer.

He’s clad in camo. She has ears and a fur vest. But we all know this doesn’t end well.

76. Every guy ogles at the alluring Jessica Rabbit.

She may be pretty. But she prefers men with long ears and a fluffy tail.

77. If you’re Hindu, try this Kali costume on for size.

Not sure if it’s offensive. But if you can pull off a costume involving multiple pairs of appendages, that’s impressive.

78. Who can be scared of this little werewolf?

Okay, she might be quite fierce. But she’s so adorable, she’s scary.

79. With these ladies, each can fit inside the other.

Okay, maybe not. But since they’re dressed as Russian nesting dolls, they all seem the same.

80. Want anything from these 1950s waitresses?

Of course, they must have a lot of energy to serve people. Got to love the neck scarves.

She’s covered with white icing and sprinkles. And she’s wearing a cherry on top.

You have the baby Planter’s Peanut mascot right here. Kind of wish they added his little monocle. But that’s okay.

85. You might want to keep away from the poop factory.

That’s pretty clever even if it’s slightly denigrating on the dog. Nonetheless, it’s a hit.

86. These two kids are going into the deep blue sea.

You can use bottles for the oxygen tanks. But instead of sea treasure, they’ll just bring back candy from trick or treating.

87. For those who fall and can’t get up, it’s Life Alert to the rescue.

Because nothing will get the ambulance to your home like Life Alert. Though this is only a demonstration.

88. Sometimes you just need a tag for the whole thing.

Now this dog is a beanie baby. You see, simple as that.

89. Seems like we have a cereal killer on the loose.

He goes everywhere stabbing cereals all over the place. Stop the carnage.

So much he’s got himself gift wrapped to show it. Still, this is hilarious.

Don’t worry, this is just a costume. She’s alive and well. But yes, it freaks you out.

92. Say hello to Pat Sajak from Wheel of Fortune.

The wheel is an umbrella while the board is a bag saying “Trick or Treat.” So cute.

94. Hope you survive a brush with death.

Yes, that’s supposed to be Death with a large toothbrush. Still, this is clever.

Her swan costume even lights up in the dark. Got to adore he wings and mask here.

96. You can always be a guest to Lumiere and Cogsworth.

Sure they’re girls. But you have to love how they’re dressed as the beloved clock and candelabra.
