Once a year, teachers get to lower the veil between responsible educator and the dirty little fun-havers that they are in real life (or “IRL” as the kids say). But you’re a teacher, and therefore know how to stick to a budget, so shelling out big bucks for a costume just isn’t going to happen. You want a disguise that’s easy, comfortable, appropriate, unique, AND that won’t dip too much into your “Wine While Grading Papers” fund. Well, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve rounded up the best costumes for teachers, and even separated them by specialty … though, if we’re keeping it real, all teachers collectively specialize in one thing: witty comebacks for, “What? I’m just texting my mom!” Hold on to your seats, blackboard bandits – costume school is now in session....

This trend is an awesome one, and one we're kind of bummed to admit that we didn't come up with on our own. T. rex's are long extinct, so who's to say that the dinosaurs didn't enjoy playing soccer or going bowling on the weekends? (Scientists? Paleontologists?! Ross Gellar?! Pssh. Prove it.) If you're like us and LOVE these viral videos of inflatable T. rex's going about their business amidst unsuspecting humans, this blog post is for you. Here are favorite instances of T-Rex's in the mainstream; pop culture moments of inflatable, unadulterated bliss.

David Bowie Life on Mars DIY

In January 2016, the world lost David Bowie, one of the most loved, creative, and inspiring individuals of all time. To call him just a musician would leave out all his memorable fashion looks.

From Labyrinth to Zoolander, from Hunky Dory to Ziggy Stardust, David Bowie left an impression wherever he went and whatever he did. To pay homage to his many iconic looks, we've picked one of our favorites to turn into a DIY Halloween costume. We went with his blue suit and orange hair combo in the "Life on Mars?" video. See below for all the...
