It's the year we've been waiting for since 1985, and a day we've been waiting for all year! (Does that make sense?) It's BACK TO THE FUTURE DAY, the exact calendar date and year that Doc and Marty traveled back...err, forward...to in Back to the Future Part II. We know that you BTTF fanboys and fangirls don't ever need a reason to celebrate this famous film trilogy, but we're just sayin', if you've got a self-drying coat or a Hoverboard lying around, today is THE day to bust them out. If wearing Back to the Future clothing isn't quite enough for you today, we've compiled some other resources for you, from themed crafts to DeLorean infographics, to collectible figurines. So come on! Celebrate Back to the Future Day with HalloweenCostumes.com!

Yes, reading is fun, but you're more of a DO-ER! We get that. Here are some themed quizzes and crafts sure to wet your BTTF whistle.
Take A Back To The Future Guitar Moves Quiz!
You know that famous "Enchantment Under the Sea" dance scene, where Marty turns into a rock god? Of course you do, or you probably wouldn't be reading this post! But just how WELL do you know it? Each of Marty's guitar dance moves were actually inspired by a famous rocker. Take our quiz and see how many you can identify.

Back To The Future Around The Office
We hope you've found at least one thing to read, wear, or craft, in our post so far. So know that YOU'RE all set, take a look at what WE'VE been up to! One of our resident superfans built a false perspective Marty McFly on a Hoverboard costume, which you can see here on the top left. Of course, we couldn't miss the chance to throw all the BTTF movies onto our flat screen at the office today, which you can see in the upper right. In the bottom two images, you can bear witness to some of our antics at Wizard World, an annual Minneapolis area Con. We had an oft-visited booth full of all things, you guessed it, BACK TO THE FUTURE!
