Some additional interests include crafting, wine, correcting people’s grammar, obsessing over Jurassic Park (remember, women inherit the earth!), 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.

DIY Harley Quinn Suicide Squad Tutorial

For a movie that doesn't come out for over a year, Suicide Squad has sure been finding its way into internet headlines an awful lot lately! One day it was a short clip of the Batmobile screeching through closed off Canadian streets, one day it was a paparazzi pic of Jared Leto sipping a latte between takes as The Joker, and one day, one glorious day, it was an album of on-set images featuring Margot Robbie in FULL ON Harley Quinn mode.

 

We couldn't be more obsessed with the "really modern, yet still classic, very intimidating, and obviously super sexy" new take on Harley Quinn's look, and as hard as that may have been to follow, we're sure we're not alone in singing its praises! SO: do you want to try this look for yourself? Do you want to dress like Suicide Squad Harley for Halloween 2015?

Unlike certain franchises that seem to never end (The Land Before Time 14?! Now That's What I Call Music! 89?!?!), Mario Party is one pop culture staple we will forever welcome new editions of. In fact, we are practically giddy that Mario Party 10 was released for the WiiU earlier this week, and we fully plan to spend the weekend swimming in a gleeful sea of brand new minigames.
