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....

Mom and Dad of Ainsley Turner -- a.k.a. the “Hot Dog Princess” -- you both deserve a high five! In a world filled to the brim with little princesses-in-training, it’s refreshing when you happen upon a trailblazer – like a hot dog at her dance school’s dress up recital.

Embracing her individuality, Ainsley performed tendu fronts and pliés in full hot-off-the-grill regalia! Best of all, her dad proudly proclaimed that the entire thing was her idea. In short: The Hot Dog Princess rules in the kingdom of costumes!

(They aren’t classified as “fun runs” for nothing.) However, how do you know what to wear for each race?

Classic horror monsters turned cereal mascots, General Mills introduced Count Chocula and Franken Berry back in 1971, followed by Boo-Berry, Fruit Brute, and Fruity Yummy Mummy. No new monster flavor has been introduced since 1987, but what would it look like if they'd continued to expand the line into more recent film horrors? We wondered the same thing, and these 6 brand new cereals emerged...

DIY Mad Max Inspired Cosplay [Tutorial]

Mad Max DIY Cosplay

 

Mad Max: Fury Road premieres on May 15th, 2015. The things we know: Max will be in the desert, looking serious and stressed out; there will be lots of cars, bikes, and trucks careening through the landscape, possibly on fire; and the costume design is going to be on point. We've spent basically our whole lives watching and rewatching the original Mad Max films, so to prepare for the fourth installment, we've created our own gear, complete with a step-by-step tutorial. This isn't a specific Max cosplay, but instead inspired by the baddies' looks in the original films. Our DIY borrows design ideas from several different characters, and the look can easily vary based on available time, affordability, ease of tracking down costume bits, and ease of use with little to no modification.
