There is no greater evidence of professional wrestling as “sports entertainment” than the use and effectiveness of finishing maneuvers. Finishers, as they are often called, are signature moves used by wrestlers, often near the end of the match, to finally secure the pinfall and win. What makes finishers so fun (and infuriating) is that in the hands of one superstar, they are simply another traditional wrestling maneuver, but when categorized as a finisher, they become overpowered, unstoppable moves that no one can kick out...

Star Wars Limb Loss Header

 

The Star Wars saga is filled with tons of visually dazzling battle scenes, the most common being lightsaber duels. The most popular weapon in the galaxy has been on full display many times during the films, and seeing as though its blade is a full-blown plasma beam, you better believe it can cut through anything. Therefore, a lot of lightsaber duels result in injury or even death due to dismemberment. Here's a look at each amputation in the Star Wars saga: who lost what at the hands of whom, and where...

Katniss Evolution of Costumes

 

Let's be real about Katniss for a second: the girl can rock all kinds of looks. From combat boots to sky-high stilettos, she transforms from a tomboy to the belle of the ball in the blink of an eye. She even manages to look like a trendsetter in her mother's drab blue dress on the day of The Reaping. It's safe to say that jumpsuits are a staple in Katniss' closet because jumpsuits are both sporty and elegant, just like Katniss! We know that she'll wear the red battle suit in the final movie, but we're also wondering, what other outfits will the Girl on Fire unveil? Will there be more stunning jumpsuits? Will she wow us by wearing any more couture dresses from the Capitol? Will her trusty Mockingjay pin stay with her ‘til the very end? Our questions keep piling up as the anticipation mounts! It's safe to say that we are Hunger Games fanatics and we'll gladly admit that we're obsessed with Miss Everdeen's wardrobe. If you're just as pumped for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 as we are, take a look at our infographic. We hope that it will keep you satisfied until the release on Nov. 20th!

The film Jurassic World was kind of a big deal this year, since, you know, it set the all time record for highest box office sales worldwide and all. BUT. Let's be honest: the best parts of Jurassic World were any nostalgic throwbacks and references to the film that started it all...Jurassic Park! JW is shiny and new, but every character, scene, and line of JP is, and forever will be, classic. If you want to be trendy, go ahead and dress as Owen Grady this year. But if you seek to be hailed a "Halloween hero" by fellow late 80s/early 90s babies this Halloween weekend, go with a classic character from Jurassic Park.

Since we at HalloweenCostumes.com love a challenge, we didn't opt for the black leather clad Dr. Malcolm, the jeans and khaki sporting Dr. Grant, or even the white-suited straw-hatted John Hammond. We chose to recreate two costumes worn by the Barbasol blundering, vending machine plundering, inGen underling, Dennis Nedry.

If you’re thinking of dressing up as a witch for Halloween, be prepared to run into at least a few others. Witches are one of the most popular Halloween costumes of all time, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a unique look if you want to dress up like one!

She’d just looked...burned, right? And a little melty? We put together this burnt witch makeup makeup tutorial to get just that look, a-sure fire way to help your witch stand out from the west.
