Some additional interests include crafting, wine, correcting people’s grammar, and brainstorming ways to make sexy costume representations of typically un-sexy pop culture characters. Donkey Kong was a breeze but Jabba the Hutt is proving formidable.

Pop Culture Poodle Skirts

 

Poodle skirts and 1950s style ensembles have been costume party staples for decades. With flattering A-Line silhouettes, girly scarves, flirty accessories, and shiny saddle shoes, it's understandable why! But we got to thinking...why should poodles be the only stars of the show? There are LOTS of other dogs that would look great, proudly parked in the corner of a demure fifties skirt.

With that premise, we bring you pop culture poodle skirts - a twist on traditional retro style, where...

"Never send a hero to do a villain's job." That's the motto that Disney villainesses would live by if they decided to form an elite alliance, like the characters in The Expendables!

Thanks to social media, tales of stray dogs wandering around various Sochi Winter Olympic arenas traveled far and wide this year. But a few extra pooches pale in comparison to the issues that 1992 Olympians faced. World class skiers not only faught for world records that year...they also faught for their lives!

Perhaps because of cover-up attempts, or perhaps because Twitter wasn't around as a means to spread the madness, many of us still remain unaware of the 16-bit SkiFree Snow Monster attacks that wreaked havoc during the Albertville, France games. We won't be in the dark any longer:
