Anime Character Costumes

Anime Character Costumes

As many of you already know, we are Yahoo news junkies and every once in a while, a story inspires us, appalls us, or simply makes us laugh.  This morning's story about a gal from Ukraine who spends hours each day transforming herself into a real life anime character got our creative juices flowing.  For months we have been contemplating how best to showcase the amazing custom anime character costumes but worried that they might not quite achieve the desired look on a real live human being.

Cosplay Air Gear Ringo Noyamano Costume

We were wrong – with a little make-up and great cosplay costume, just about anyone can transform themselves into a living anime character for not much more than an off the rack Halloween costume.  These high quality, custom designed cosplay anime character costumes look amazingly authentic and will definitely help you stand out from the pack this Halloween.  Cosplay costumes also work great as couples costumes and group costumes but it is essential that you plan ahead because they are special order and take a few extra days for delivery.

Here are a few videos showing you how2 create those amazingly large anime eyes fanboys adore.

Discounted Children’s Bicycles

Cardboard BikeYahoo News does it again – something catches my fancy and suddenly I am diverted from the task at hand onto a whole other direction.  Check out this cardboard bicycle that its Israeli inventor says can change the world – and priced at just $20.00, he might be right!

Discounted Children's Bicycles

So suddenly I began wondering with Christmas just around the corner, how much are children's bikes these days?  Not surprisingly I went directly to my first stop for almost anything and everything – Amazon.com.  The sheer number of adorable children's bicycles was a bit overwhelming for a simple off-task activity so I decided to narrow my choices down to bikes that are currently being offered at 50% -70% off.    So here's what I found — bikes ranged from an affordable girls  white bike reduced 70% from $130.00 to $38.79  to a kids Ferrari red bike reduced 52% from $524.00 to a still pricey $249.95. In between there was a cute pink and purple bicycle priced at $62.96 and a Transformers fan dream bike reduced 68% to $77.48.  I know many of you wait until black Friday to purchase your holiday gifts but sometimes the stress of finding the right deal on the right day is a bit much so consider taking advantage of Amazon's huge selection of products priced at 70% off everyday and begin stocking up on this year's Christmas and birthday presents!

Party Hearty!

50% off Pack of 450 Printable Games

Printable GamesFor one day only, September 18, 2012, Funsational is offering 50% off its MVP Printable Games Party Collection including new Halloween games.

So sorry – not only has this deal expired, Funsational has closed its doors. But not to worry – Print Games Now has taken up the slack! You can also find lots of fun printable games on Etsy.

Both Print Games Now carry Holiday, Seasonal, and Event games; Baby Shower, Bridal Shower, Birthday, Over-the-Hill, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Spring, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Harvest, Christmas, New Year's and Winter games.

If we get one question more than any other, it is “do you have any ideas of games to play at my party and by the way, our guests are arriving in 45 minutes.”  Our answer is always the same — yes, go online and order a theme pack of printable games.  The biggest time suck is always the actual ordering and, of course, the printing of the games.  Something always goes awry — generally I forget to fill in a required field and then have to start the ordering process all over again or my printer runs out of paper or worse yet, the printer jams because it knows I am in a rush.  So if you plan in advance, you will not only have peace of mind that you have easily accessible party activities (you have access to the games 24/7), you also have plenty of time to print them out well before your guests arrive.

Have Fun and Party Hearty!
