DIY BoJack Horseman and Princess Carolyn Couples Costume

Bojack Horseman and Princess Carolyn Couples Costume DIY

 

What came first, the creepy horse mask or BoJack Horseman? We like to think that's a theological question better reserved for the philosophers. After all, the talking horse has been a bit of a spirit animal in pop culture dating as far back as Mr. Ed and however many tons of peanut butter the poor beast chewed throughout his career. No matter the origins, or our strange fascination with talking horses, the Netflix original hit BoJack Horseman made an immediate impact on an adult-themed cartoon universe. Competing with other big names like Family Guy, Rick and Morty, or really anything else you'll find on Fox or Adult Swim, it's the kind of show that makes immediate sense on an entirely offbeat and sarcastic level.

Thinking 4th Dimensionally: Back to the Future

 

The world  may have waited 30 years only to find out that we don't have hover cars, dog walking drones, or fully-functional hoverboards (thanks a lot, Father Time!), but that doesn't mean we can't think 4th Dimensionally. Here today, just over a week away from October 21, 2015 - the day when Marty McFly, Jennifer Parker and Doc Brown famously ventured into the future in Back to the Future Part II - we have the distinct pleasure of seeing beyond our past to take stock of our "future".

 

In the spirit of exploring the delecate fabric of the space-time continuum, we bring you three cross-sections of time from the Back to the Future trilogy.

Cosplayers delight - this is your source for finding the Back to the Future costume that no one else thought of for Halloween 2015! Enjoy the ride.

DIY Volkswagen Diesel Scandal Costume

Volkswagen Emissions Scandal Costume

 

It's an outrage! It's a scandal! And of course, it's a Halloween costume. In light of the Volkswagen TDI diesel scandal, there is no separating the news from this year's best "attention getting cringe costume" idea. This is not to trivialize a devastating blow to the car industry, or the countless VW employees it impacts, or the questions it raises about values and ethics. It is, well, comedy. When it hurts too much to cry, it's time to laugh!

In a year with too many scandals, tasteless costumes, and unfortunate news stories to count on all your fingers and toes, this is just par for the course. The real challenge is finding a way to take something so abstract and make it a tangible outfit. Consider our suggestions on how to put together a Volkswagen Diesel Scandal costume, if you want to be the "Oh, I get it" Halloween 2015 partygoer that starts conversations. (*Note: these conversations may be uncomfortable!)
