Halloween Costumes for College Guys

Halloween Costumes for College Guys

College is a time to grow, to learn, to study. It's also one of the few times in life where people from every field of study are together on the same campus.

Man of Your Dreams: The Evolution of Freddy Krueger [Infographic]

Freddy Krueger Infographic

Take a moment to relax. Find a nice, quiet room, and lay down in the dark. Close your eyes. Feel yourself drifting off to sleep… Suddenly, you see a figure off in the distance. The vision is hazy at first, but then he slowly rises into focus. You can see a ragged striped sweater on a tall lurching body. An old brown hat with a wide brim. A sharp ray of light flickers: he has blades coming from his sleeve, like every finger is a knife. Burnt, disfigured skin glistens in the moonlight. Finally, the man of your dreams fully appears in front of you: it’s Freddy Krueger. One of the most infamous movie villains of all time came into the pop culture lexicon in 1984’s A Nightmare on Elm Street and throughout the 9-film franchise, Krueger’s look changed bit-by-bit, burn-by-burn, and other such b-words that Freddy is well-known for spouting. We’ve created this infographic showing the changes, as well as Krueger’s kill count per film and interesting facts about each movie. See for yourself, but whatever you do… don’t fall asleep.

DIY Hamilton Costume Ideas 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 the costumes will require a bit of ingenuity. Our guide draws from a number of other seemingly unrelated offerrings, 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. There are a million costumes we haven't made, but just you wait... 

These costumes will also be perfect for a SNL screening when Lin-Manuel Miranda hosts on Saturday the 8th and for when PBS airs it's documentary on the musical on the 21st of October.

Wrestling for your Heart: 15 Printable WWE Valentine's Day Cards

When you think of professional wrestling, your mind might not automatically turn to hugs and kisses. While the form of “sports entertainment” known as professional wrestling is noted for loud slaps, hard falls, and bulging muscles, it’s also about friendship and alliances. Few WWE superstars can make it on their own, they’ve got to have a partner in their corner who always has their back. And that’s not even mentioning the many, many storylines through the years that have revolved around one wrestler stealing another wrestler’s wife/girlfriend. Love and hate coexist in a weird space in any given wrestling match or backstage promo. For the pro-wrestling fan in your life, give them the gift of a highly specific WWE Valentine’s Day card, featuring their favorite wrestler, past or present.
