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. And quite literally, we've pulled apart the threads to explore the principle costumes worn by Marty McFly, Doc Brown, and Biff Tannen throughout 1985, 1955, 2015, and 1985. 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.

That was the awful magic at the end of Game of Thrones season five during Cersei Lannister's painful walk of shame through the streets of King's Landing. To no surprise, this is one Halloween costume we can expect to see on the streets for Halloween 2015!
