Get it off me!


What the f is this thing.

Ok so just another spooky day at right? Not so fast. I forgot my power cord at home so I ran home around lunch to pick it up. Leaving my house I saw a green tube crawling acroos my street. I was just going to keep driving and I wish I did. Of course curiosity kills the cat. I turned around, got out of the car and took a picture. I always have my handy Paper Mate pen with me so I put it down for reference.

When I put the pen down this think shrunk up a little so it’s even larger when its extended. In this picture this thing was about 4″, extended I could see it at 5″. Another weird thing was that it looks like it was twisting as it crawled.

The most horrifying part of this whole thing, besides the size, was the stinger on the end of it. The stinger was a good 1/4″ of pure horror.

Of course as I am writing this blog Shawn who sits next to me said he would eat it. Yea right.

Spencer Pratt is ready for Halloween

Seriously who is this knucklehead? He’s hanging out on the boulevard of broken dreams in Hollywood. I have to give Spence some credit though. At least he is sporting one pretty sweet old man costume complete with makeup. Spencer was trying to crash the Hills finale party with this disguise but got busted. See that’s why you always buy your old man costumes at If he did he would have been in there with no problem. They would have thought he was Audrina’s grandfather no doubt about it.
Lesson learned Spencer, if you want to make a big impact on the red carpet you have to get your get up’s from us.

Captain America Needs a New Costume

Captain America Costume

It looks like after that awful Wonder Woman costume redesign it’s time for the nerds over at Project Rooftop to come up with a new costume for Captain America. Let’s hope this one gets done right. After all there is nothing like cruising around in a skin tight red, white and blue spandex suit and shield. I mean how cranked up can you get with that costume on? Walk onto a plane with the Captain America costume and the terrorists will run for cover. Go out to a club on any random night and have your pick of over obsessed fans. People will be buying you drinks all night. Of course as Captain America you would have to refuse alcohol. But of course you could let girls do body shots off your foam six pack. After all whats more American than that?

Mailbag Madness

From time to time we get letters from our customers. Most are people requesting catalogs or placing an order. Some people even send us nice letters letting us know they were happy with their shopping experience. We also get some jail mail.

Then sometimes we get letters like this.

We did the author a favor by editing out his info. I am having a hard time believing that this kid even wants to write this letter. His teacher assigned this homework and he was just banging out a letter to get it done. Are you really hating on sexy costumes? If there are no sexy costumes next Halloween you might as well just cancel it.

Celebrating Mardi Gras In Style!

With only a month until Mardi Gras, there isn’t much time left to get ready for the biggest party of the year! Originally a simple celebration the day before Lent, Mardi Gras has grown into a full blown extravaganza, complete with parades, parties, costumes, performers, masquerade balls and plenty of sweets. So, whether you’re headed to the New Orleans celebration, throwing a traditional King’s Cake party or attending a masquerade ball, Mardi Gras is a time to enjoy life to the fullest. For all those participating, here are some helpful tips on what to wear during Mardi Gras, so you can join in on the fun!

If you’re celebrating Mardi Gras on the street, either at home or afar, be prepared for a color explosion! Colorful and decorative costumes are the choice of the day, typically in the traditional colors of Mardi Gras (green, gold and purple). In addition to costumes, you’ll also find plenty of people just adding a few accessories to join in on the fun. Masks, beads, makeup and anything else appropriately colored will fit right in with the Mardi Gras theme. Just look at your local Halloween store for what they have, or check online. So live a little and add some flair to what you’re wearing for Mardi Gras!

Aside from the excitement and partying of Mardi Gras in the streets, this holiday is also known for it exquisite and extravagant masquerade balls. If you’re lucky enough to receive an invitation, or just happen to be throwing one, you’ll want to make sure you dress to impress. Masquerade balls are typically formal, black-tie affairs, but the real fun comes from the masks. A long standing, Mardi Gras tradition, masks are worn to conceal your identity so you aren’t restrained by who you are, but instead only by what you want to be. Masks come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors and styles, each designed to conceal and decorate the person behind it. While many make their own Mardi Gras masks, those without time or artistic skill will find plenty of masks available for sale. Just check out your local Halloween store or shop online. Regardless of where you get a mask, be sure to find one you like and truly reflects your Mardi Gras spirit!
