But when it comes to popularity of costumes based on games, the number one hit is the Minecraft Enderman Costume. This costume comes as two pieces. The first piece is the head of the character.

This piece is a large square that’s made of top quality cardboard. This cardboard does not bend easily and is durable. Despite how tough the box is, it’s made of lightweight material so you can wear if all night long and still be comfortable.

The graphics on the box are identical to the featured on Enderman. Just be careful that you don’t accidentally teleport! The color on the head of this costume is dark black but does have some shades of lighter black.

There is a signature white rectangle under both of the eye openings. Each of these eye openings are square making it easier to see where you’re walking when you have the head on at night.

The suit will cover you from your head all the way to your feet. When you’re trying to determine which size will fit you the best since the suit is extremely form fitting, order the suit that will fit how tall you are. The back of the suit zips up so you can get in and out of it easily.

He-Man Muscle Men’s Costume

You’ll find that the Pirates of the Caribbean costumes are popular. So are the Captain America and other superhero ones. But standing in the most popular slot this year is the He-Man Muscle Men’s Costume.

This costume is popular as well as being one that will win the party prize because it won’t blend in with a sea of men wearing similar looking costumes.


This costume is patterned after the superhero defender of Castle Grayskull as depicted in the DC Comics series. Though he’s a superhero, this costume doesn’t come with a cape, but relies on the same nod to a barbaric appearance as the original character.

Any man wearing this costume will look like a warrior and it’s a big hit. The costume is jumpsuit is made in a flesh color. It’s designed to turn heads and make it appear as if the wearer only has on the loin cloth covering.

The arm portions of the jumpsuit contain padding, too. Across the center of the chest is the armor plate that He-Man wears. This armor has a gray background color. Centered in the middle of this is the red mark that stands out as part of this hero.

The loin cloth that comes with the costume is made of fake fur and is dark brown in color. This cloth is wider than most loin cloths and because it has the fake fur, it offers more coverage than most.

There are boot tops included as part of this costume. These boot tops are also made of fake fur in the same brown color as the loin cloth. The design of them add to the barbaric style of the costume.

Included with the costume is a blond wig. The wig is cut in the same style that He-man wears with the shorter bangs and the bobbed sides and back. The costume is easy to get on and off thanks to the velcro pieces that fasten together the costume.

The beautifully designed sword unfortunately does not come with the costume, but you can purchase it separately. You can find that sword listed as the Disguise Men’s 4′ Long Sword.

Men’s Blood Line Adult Dark Prince Costume

What’s really popular this year, probably in part thanks to television shows like Game of Thrones are the period costumes.

These popular costumes are ones that feature men dressed like kings or princes or other noblemen. Hitting the number one slot in popularity is the Men’s Blood Line Adult Dark Prince Costume.

This costume is made of 100% synthetic and it does have to be hand washed when you need to clean it. This costume is a tunic that’s mid thigh in length. It’s a silver-gray color that has a row stitched design throughout the material.

This design gives the tunic the look of armor plating. The tunic does have long sleeves and is warm so it’s a great choice to get if you live in an area where the weather is cooler during Halloween.

The neck of the tunic is a raised V collar tucked into a double stitched seam. On top of the gray tunic is a black piece that looks like it’s quilted but it’s just the way the design is made. This piece covers the center portion of the tunic so that the gray sides do still show around it.

At the top of this black piece is a jeweled design. This design has a row of silver squares with intricate frames around each of the single blue designed jewels. This piece is made to simulate a cloak chain that was worn by the nobles during the medieval period.

The belt on the tunic is made of fabric that’s stitched on both the top and bottom seams. It has a buckle and the center of the buckle contains the same intricate silver design and blue jewel in the center as the cloak chain.

There is a sheer black cape that comes along with this costume. This cape is long enough so that it hangs to the middle of the back of the lower legs. The top of the cape is trimmed in dark brown fake fur that goes across both shoulders.

A pair of boot tops is included with the purchase of the costume. These boot tops are the same silver-gray color as the tunic and also have the same armor design. There are black straps that cross the front of the boot covers. The same brown fur that’s at the top of the cloak is trimmed at the top and the bottom of the boot tops.

The sword does not come as part of this costume so you’ll have to purchase that as a separate piece. You can find one that fits the medieval time period with the Disguise Men’s Lion’s Sword.

The rock is long enough to stretch from the chest to the upper thigh area. The width of it does extend out from the body on the sides. The rock is gray and has dark gray shadows to show contouring.

It has gray lines and gray rock spots on it to add to the design. You’ll want to wear a long sleeve black shirt and a pair of black pants to complement the rock. Showing an eye for detail, the paper part of this group costume set is white.

It has blue lines running horizontally across it just like a real sheet of paper. It even has the faint red vertical line to the side and three holes as well. The length of this costume is from the shoulders to just about knee length.

What some wearers did with this costume was to write funny comments or drawings on the sheet of paper. Like the rock costume, you’ll also want to wear plain black clothes with this one.

The scissors are made to look like a pair of real ones. These have blue finger hole handles. Either side of the handles can be worn around the neck. Whichever side that you choose will determine the way the edge of the scissors slant.

The body of the scissors is silver and has the fastener indention on it. This costume is made of soft material and is comfortable. Like the other costumes, this one should be worn with a black shirt and pants as well.

Set of 5 Pac-Man Group Girl Costumes

It’s time to choose the perfect costume for your group get together. Halloween is almost here, so you don’t want to miss out on all the great options that are available to you. What a lot of groups are choosing to do is to go as sets of superheroes that are all connected to the same movie – such as everyone going as someone from the Avengers.

But what’s really fun to do is when you have a large group of friends or family who want to dress up in a group costume is to go as video game characters. You want to go as someone easily recognizable and the classic Pac-Man characters certainly fit that bill.

The Set of 5 Pac-Man Group Girl Costumes can be used for a coworker Halloween party or if a family wanted to go as a group costume. This costume set consists of five different Pac-Man characters.

These are all tank dresses, which means that the length of these is right about thigh-high. So not only are these cute and funny costumes, but they can be sexy as well. These are all vibrant colored dresses that when worn together as a group will turn plenty of heads.

One of the tank dresses is in the set is the orange Pac-Man costume. The top of the dress has a rounded neckline. In the center of the dress are the white eyes of the Pac-Man character.

These are looking off to the right. The hem line of the dress has the same curved bottom as the Pac-Man characters in the video game. Add a pair of high heels and you’re ready to party.

The second tank dress is the standard Pac-Man one. This one is a yellow color. It has the black wide open mouth as well as the black Pac-Man eyes. It also has a rounded neckline and curved hem.

The third tank dress is blue. It’s done in the same styles as the other dresses and also has the eye design that look off toward the right. The fourth tank dress is red. It’s also done in the same style but the eye design on this dress are facing the left instead of the right.

The final tank dress is a soft pink. The design is the same as the other four and the eye design faces the left. You’ll get all five of these Pac-Man designs known as Blinky, Clyde, Pinky, Inky and Pac-Man.

There are no gloves or shoe covers included in this costume set like you get with the single purchase Pac-Man costume. So you will need to pick out some cute heels that match the color of your Pac Man character, and buy some gloves, too.

Home Hacks: 9 cheap and free DIY ways to get your kitchen in order

Home Hacks: 9 cheap and free DIY ways to get your kitchen in order

Y’all know I’m lazy. But I also love to live the beautiful life! That’s what the Lazy Girl’s Guide column is all about. Let’s start here. 

So, if you’re connected to me in any major social media network, you probably already know this–but for those who don’t already know me, I moved into (what I consider) my dream home back in May of last year, and I’ve been all about decorating and organizing and all of the fun that goes along with (finally!) having enough space for your stuff.

Since moving is also a costly endeavor, as is decorating and furnishing a new home, and since I’m a huge cheapskate anyway–I started looking for ways to make my life easier and more organized. 

And since I’m the type who loves to share information, I’ve rounded up some of the best cheap and free DIY ways to get your kitchen in order, right here. 

  1. Tissue boxes for plastic bags–add pretty duct tape to sturdy up the box and tack or stick inside of cabinet.
  2. Soda boxes for canned goods–again, duct tape to sturdy it up and cans are dispensed like soda cans. Would work best with multiple ones that contain the same kind of canned goods in each. Best for larger families.
  3. Wire racks inside cabinets to add storage–these can be small ones to sit over a stack of plates (to hold saucers, or bowls maybe), or they can be larger and used for holding cookie sheets, pots, pans or lids.
  4. Magazine racks to hold cookie sheets and foil or plastic wrap boxes–old mail racks or metal file holders from the office work just as well.
  5. Magnetic strips all over the place–I can’t believe I don’t have these already, honestly. But magnetic strips inside of your cabinets or even on the wall can hold all sorts of things. A few examples: knives, cooking utensils, spice jars and tins–anything metallic, really. If you don’t have a ton of cabinet or wall space, you could even stick these right on your fridge or dishwasher.
  6. Lazy susans–you can put them on the countertop to hold coffee or tea supplies (cream, sugar, etc.) or inside the cabinets to hold spices. The possibilities are endless. I’ve even seen people use lazy susans to hold canned goods.
  7. Stick on hooks–again, these are so cheap and so useful. I have them on the wall next to my stove to hold pot holders. There’s also one next to my sink which holds a passionately written list of “dishwasher rules,” penned on construction paper after a particularly frustrating attempt to put away the “clean” dishes one evening. If you’re low on cupboard space, you can use these to hold teacups or coffee mugs too. These are my favorites–here’s a coupon I found that can save you a bit of cash.
  8. Baskets on the wall–I found this awesome blog post about how to mount baskets on your wall for added storage space–and I’m all over it. I am thinking of doing this in my bathroom, really, but it could also work really well in the kitchen. I already have a ton of baskets and bins that’d work–so this could be a cheap (or maybe even free) way to go.
  9. Cereal box drawer dividers–Another online find, this is a tutorial on how to DIY drawer organizers from simple cereal boxes. I can’t resist a money-saver that also makes your life prettier.

My Inner Geek on Why Walmart’s ‘Fat Girl Costumes’ Were (Probably) Google’s Fault

My Inner Geek on Why Walmart’s ‘Fat Girl Costumes’ Were (Probably) Google’s Fault

“I found there was only one way to look thin: hang out with fat people.” ~Rodney Dangerfield

You’ve probably heard about the whole “Walmart fat girl costumes” debacle by now, right?

If not, let me give you the skinny (pun totally intended). Basically, for a short time on Monday, there was a section in the Halloween department on Walmart.com that was labeled “fat girl costumes.” It looked a lot like this.



Of course, everyone and their brother totally wigged out, calling for the head of the one who dared to type such a thing into Walmart’s categories section.

“It’s not clear where the original description was penned by the budding Shakespeares behind Walmart’s website copy or someone else,” wrote Jezabel’s Anna Merlan. “Walmart’s costume section, in other words, is truly the hottest of messes. Let’s start taking bets on how long it’ll be until the Fat Girl section disappears and we’re subjected to a totally sincere apology from a retail giant who really really cares (about taking your money, in return for a shitty costume).”

“Halloween, brought to you by Walmart — the best time of year to make fun of any woman over a size 6,” quipped HuffPo’s Nina Badahur. “If you want some actually clever costume ideas, check out our list here.

While I definitely can’t tell you the name of a person who allowed that label to go public, I can tell you one thing: it is most likely  NOT because someone hates all women, fat women–or any women. I’d like to think that it has nothing to do with any kind of ISM–sexism, fatism, you know–isms– but rather, I’d like to believe that the cause is much more simple: plain old SEO–search engine optimization. 

How SEO Could Make Walmart Call You a “Fat Girl”

See, as an internet professional (aka geek), I know a thing or two about how search engines work. And when companies try to code in automatically generated search terms, they use algorithms that often pull from Google searches (and other search engines). And though it was obviously a mistake that it became an official category, isn’t it possible that the term “fat girl costumes” were searched so often when people ultimately ended up purchasing a plus-sized costume that it became a recognizable term for the search engines? 

And, I don’t know, it’s possible that Walmart’s site is so sophisticated that it could use the top-searched matched term as a label for its categories. Or is it? 

In any case, I’d like to believe that the Walmart web folks don’t hate our plus-sized sisters–rather, maybe they’re just SEO experts and/or crazy hackers who got carried away with their awesome technnology. 

To be fair, WalMart later released a statement that  reiterated that “this never should have been on our site. It is unacceptable, and we apologize. We are working to remove it as soon as possible and ensure this never happens again.”

What do you think? Should we be taking this whole “fat girl costumes” deal very seriously?
