50 Seriously Creative Halloween Costumes That Are Hard To Top

Published

on

Halloween is one of the most, if not THE most, creative holiday there is. People get to use that energy to create fantastical costumes that wow and delight. I mean, you could head to the store and buy a Halloween costume.

But that’s not as much fun as making your own. And some people really go over the top with their costumes. Not only do they come up with brilliant costume concepts, but they also incorporate electronics, sewing, painting, and other skills to make their Halloween masterpieces.

And these pieces really do impress. It’s a shame that they only get used for a day or a few hours during the holiday season. They should be put in a museum of DIY Halloween costumes. I’d pay to see that exhibit. But since that exhibit doesn’t yet exist, enjoy this slideshow instead.

75 Times People’s Taste Was Questionable, But Their Execution Was Flawless

Published

on

The expression “It’s all a matter of taste” is true — most of the time. Sure, we all have different ways of dressing, doing our hair, and decorating our homes. But now and then, you run across something you know defies the saying. Some things are so tacky, ugly, and horrible, you can say definitively — it’s NOT a matter of taste. It’s just plain tasteless.

There are entire Reddit sub-threads dedicated to memorializing these tasteless treasures. Some of them are just plain horrible. Others are DIY disasters from people who think they’re artists but have no talent. Then some make you say “I can’t believe anyone would actually pay money for this.”

But the concept of some things is so bad, you automatically hate them. At the same time, the creations are done so well you can’t help but be impressed. In other words, they’re examples of awful taste but great execution. You can’t decide whether you love them or loathe them.

The subreddit known as r/ATBGE is dedicated to such treasures as these. It’s full of things that make you think, “Ugh, that’s horrible…but done well.”

1. This Van Gogh ear necklace

Legend has it that Vincent Van Gogh cut off his ear and mailed it to the woman he was in love with. Although the legend isn’t true, it’s still immortalized in this unique necklace.

40 Failed DIY Solutions To Ward Off Coronavirus

Published

on

The coronavirus pandemic caught many of us by surprise and has led to some downright thoughtful and useful DIY projects in an effort to slow the spread of the virus.

However, these DIY efforts may not fall into that category.

In fact, we’re not entirely sure what to think about some of them.

However, we do know that a little laughter rarely hurts, so have a look for yourself:

#1 Using what you have

Not everyone was prepared with full PPE. In fact, it’s probably best to leave enough for the frontline medical workers. This guy wearing a bear costume instead of a mask took it a step further and left one medical worker in a much better mood. She couldn’t stop laughing.
Neither can we.

#3 Social distancing
