‘Stranger Things’ Tops The List Of Most Sought After Halloween Costumes

(PCM) Fans are clamoring to get their hands on anything that would resemble a costume from the hit Netflix series “Stranger Things” for the Halloween season. The series tops the list of the most sought after character costumes with many fans searching the internet high and low for retro clothing items that will allow them to dress up as “Eleven” or “Barb”.

It is actually fairly easy to piece meal an “Eleven” costume together from various items on the internet, and of course don’t forget to include a box of delicious Eggo Waffles!  Top picks for a great “Eleven” costume include a pink Peter Pan collared dress paired up with a dark blue denim bomber jacket. The only other items needed would be a old blonde wig and a dirty pair of tennis shoes and voila! You have your perfect “Eleven” costume.

Many fans are also attempting to dress up as fan favorite “Barb” by purchasing a good pair of high-waisted mom jeans and an adorable pussy bow blouse in a color of your choosing. Add a pair of large thick framed glasses and you are all set!

Other popular costume choices for Halloween are of course Suicide Squad’s “Harley Quinn” and “The Joker” and political figures such as Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. There has definitely been a rise of more super-hero based costume choices and less on the typical costumes such as princesses, witches, vampires and animals.

Do you have any unique costume ideas? What do you plan to wear this year?

Tim Gunn Criticizes The Fashion Industry For Not Accepting Plus-Size Women

tim-gunn

(PCM) The demand for stylish and high quality, yet affordable plus size fashion has been on the rise for a good number of years now, however the designers and the fashion industry overall do not want to accept it.

According to recent studies the average American woman is between a size 16 and size 18, however the overall majority of fashion designers outright refuse to create anything that is above a size 12. Do they not realize they are completely alienating a tremendous segment of the shopping population? Apparently they don’t seem to care.

Recently, Project Runaway host Tim Gunn ripped into the fashion industry for their failure to accept plus size women saying “I love the American fashion industry, but it has a lot of problems, and one of them is the baffling way it has turned its back on plus-size women. It’s a puzzling conundrum. The average American woman now wears between a size 16 and a size 18, according to new research from Washington State University. There are 100 million plus-size women in America, and, for the past three years, they have increased their spending on clothes faster than their straight-size counterparts. There is money to be made here ($20.4 billion, up 17 percent from 2013). But many designers — dripping with disdain, lacking imagination or simply too cowardly to take a risk — still refuse to make clothes for them.”

In fact, Gunn even went out and spoke with several designers asking them why they fail to create for this particular demographic and their answers broke our hearts. Gunn claims their response was “I’m not interested in her.” Why? “I don’t want her wearing my clothes.” Why? “She won’t look the way that I want her to look.”

Ouch! They are seriously discriminating against a very large group of people. We are thrilled to hear that Tim Gunn has shared his thoughts on the matter and hopefully the fashion industry will see the error of their ways in good time.

Ladies Looking For A Quick Buck? You Can Sell Your Used Panties Online!

panty1

(PCM) Ladies who are search of a way to make a few extra bucks will be surprised to learn that there is a whole online market dedicated to the buying and selling of used or soiled panties. As disgusting as it sounds, many women are making thousands of dollars just by selling their unmentionables to the highest buyer.

In fact, one woman in particular is making headlines after she wore the same pair of panties for three weeks straight (yuck!), but ended up selling them for the price tag of $5,000. If you can get over the yuckiness of it all, that is truly not a bad amount of money despite it being pretty gross.

The woman says she signed up through the website, Sophia Gray, which calls itself an online marketplace for “lovingly used underwear”.  Whatever that means! The woman noticed that others were making pretty good money off of the website and says she tries to list at least three to four pairs per week. In addition, to the $5,000 she made for wearing the underwear for three weeks for a client, she has made close to $4,000 in the six months that she has been using the website.

She claims that she would never do the whole three week panty wearing thing again, however she will continue to list on the site. She also says that buyers will know if you cheat so it’s not worth it, as apparently they are experts with their merchandise.

Bride Sells Her Wedding Dress On Ebay To Fund Divorce

wedding-dress-ebay

(PCM) A U.K. bride is making headlines as she is selling her wedding dress on Ebay to assist with funding her pending divorce. In her hilarious, yet bitter, posting she claims that her ex-husband has left her to “foot the bill”.

It is the incredibly tongue-in-cheek posting by 28-year old Samantha Wagg that has caused her Ebay list for a size 6 Art Deco wedding gown to go viral. She goes into great detail about her pending divorce from her “cheating scumbag of a husband”.

Wagg is accepting emails from people who have questions about the dress and “the skank that my husband ran off with”, she also hilariously warns buyers that they should be sure to dry clean the dress before wearing to get rid of the “stench of betrayal”.

Wow! Definitely would make us rethink purchasing this one!

Wagg had made an initial posting in regards to the dress however it wasn’t getting any attention. Her brother suggested making it funny in hopes of going viral and the results have been astonishing.

Wagg says her parents paid around $2,600 for the dress back in 2014, however her incredibly comedic bid has raised the price upwards of over $86,000!  Wagg will not reveal any more details about her divorce and claims that she has been approached to appear on several U.K. reality television series, which she is seriously considering.

Wagg says she is humbled by outpouring of love and support from people all over the world and that she has managed to forgive her ex-husband for his mistake and wishes him nothing but the best (without her!) for the rest of his life. She goes on to say “I am very happy now, so I hope he is too.”

There Is An App That Lets You Purchase Restaurant Leftovers For A Fraction Of The Price!

Peachy-Keens-App

(PCM) What a genius idea! There is an app in the UK called “Too Good To Go” that allows people to purchase leftover food from various cafes and fancy dining establishments for a fraction of the price it would normally cost to dine. On average a “Too Good To Go” meal could equal out to about two British pounds which is the approximate equivalent to $2.60 in U.S. currency.

How do we not have this here in the States already?

It is a fantastic way to avoid having all of that perfectly good food go to waste. Seriously, why not make a little money off it and feed some hungry people rather than have it do nothing but rot in a garbage can. Co-founder of “Too Good To Go” James Crummie says “Food waste just seems like one of the dumbest problems we have in this world. The restaurant industry is wasting about 600,000 tons of food each year, and in the U.K. alone there are one million people on emergency food parcels from food banks. Why do we have these two massive social issues that are completely connected, yet there is not much going on to address them?” He makes a completely valid point. One in six U.S. households go hungry, while restaurants throw away 40% of their food each and every day.

How is works is, users can pick up their meals an hour before closing time at the restaurant of their choosing. Ordering through the app is simply like waiting until the last minute to grab takeout before heading home to Netflix and Chill! Here’s to hoping that we can get something like this started up in the States sometime soon, as we think it is an utterly fantastic idea and a perfect way to be environmentally conscious and cut down on the massive problem of food waste.

Witchcraft Shop Refuses To Sell Wands To Harry Potter Fans

Harry-Potter-Wand1

(PCM) Not sure exactly how one witchcraft shop in Great Britain is able to accurately spot a Harry Potter fan, however they claim they can sense one just by the aura and wants no part of them shopping in their store.

Mystical Moments crafts gorgeous handmade wooden wands for witches, warlocks and wizards, however if you are a Harry Potter fan you can forget about it!  The store refuses to sell any wands to fans of the hit book/film franchise written by author J.K. Rowling.

The store owner claims that while Rowling did, indeed, do her research, Harry Potter is for children and has done nothing for his business overall. The store owner told the Telegraph, “I don’t have customers who have been Harry Potterfied. If I had someone come in wanting a wand just because they liked Harry Potter I wouldn’t sell them one, no matter how much money they were offering.”

When used correctly wands can be used as a tool to draw a protective circle around witches to assist with curing various ills and of course make wishes come true. All you truly need is faith in whichever product you choose to have it work wonders for you, except if you are a fan of Harry Potter. In that case, you are totally on your own!

This definitely shows quite a bit of discrimination against Harry Potter fans by Mystical Moments and many fans feel that it is not even legal for a shop to refuse to sell an item to a specific group of people. Do we smell a lawsuit brewing?
