Inflatable T-Rex Costume Ideas for Halloween (And Every Day)

We've all seen it. The amazing, unforgettable online videos shared on Facebooks and nightly news segments alike: a person (maybe?) in a giant inflatable Tyrannosaurus Rex costume, cavorting and jumping around town, seemingly unaware of any onlookers around them. 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-rexes 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-rexes going about their business amidst unsuspecting humans, this blog post is for you. Here are favorite instances of T-Rexes in the mainstream- pop culture moments of inflatable, unadulterated bliss.

DIY Hamilton Costume Ideas for Halloween That Will Leave You Satisfied

2016 has become the year of Hamilton. After debuting in early 2015 off-Broadway and transferring to Broadway in August 2015, this year the hit musical won 11 Tony Awards, a Pulitzer Prize, a Grammy Award, and received an invitation to the White House to perform for President Obama. While it continues to dazzle audiences on Broadway, shows are being mounted in Chicago, London, and a US National Touring Production, which opens in San Francisco. We hope these extra productions will bring the ticket price down from the over $1,000 it has been fetching. In the meantime, though, here are some costume guides to help you bring the musical to your hometown for Halloween. Creating Hamilton Halloween costumes will require a bit of ingenuity. Our guide draws from a number of other seemingly unrelated offerings, combining Halloween costumes you’ll never think could go together. The end result will be something truly unique. Now do Lin-Manuel Miranda proud and start crafting your Hamilton cosplay! There are a million costumes we haven't made, but just you wait...
